We have written many times about RTE and it’s anti-Christian publishing. We have also previously highlighted how RTE use “opinion pieces” as dog whistles to stir up public opinion for fear they themselves would be tarnished for being anti Irish.
The latest attack on Irish culture takes the form of an opinion piece published online by RTE.
The State funded broadcasted published an article by Dr. Brian Moss, a lecturer in criminology at the University of Southampton.
He is of the opinion that our 100 year old Gardai logo needs an update because the Gardai insignia has a Christian influence, being shaped “like a cross” and containing “triquetra, a symbol denoting the holy Trinity.”
We wish to point out that the triquetra Mr. Moss mentions does not represent “the Holy Trinity”. According to Wiki, the Triquetra pre-dates Christian times. In-fact such symbols are frequently found from the 4th century B.C. on ceramics of Anatolia and Persia. Pity RTE didn’t fact check this obvious anti-Christian opinion.
Mr. Moss continues;
“In the century that has passed since its adoption, Ireland has removed the constitutional importance of Catholicism and added that of same sex marriage. The state’s culture and society have shifted under the influence of James Joyce and the bishop and the Nightie incident, among others. Ireland has also acknowledged excluding and hurting cohorts of women and children and progressed to welcoming diverse ethnicities among its citizens.”
We can only imagine what a new Gardai insignia would look like in our multi-cultural, liberal Ireland.
