President Obama Comments on Catholic School Education in Northern Ireland Gets Noticed

I am not sure if the Obama was trying to make an intentional point here or not as to the policy of Catholic education in Northern Ireland. However the Catholic papers in the UK appeared to have noticed. See US president undermines Catholic schools after Vatican Prefect praised them

" if Catholics have their schools and buildings, and Protestants have theirs, if we can't see ourselves in one another, if fear or resentment are allowed to harden - that too encourages division..."

Wow, Obama thinks the problem is that parents have a choice of schools, and he denounces faith-based educational options.

Of course, his criticism of faith-based education doesn't seem to apply to the school where he sends his daughters:

"Sidwell Friends School is an educational community inspired by the values of the Religious Society of Friends."
