THIS STORY IS TAKING A NEW TWIST!!!!!
The Principal of Banbridge High has strongly refuted allegations controversial reading material, which has been branded ‘sectarian’, was ever present in the school library.
Cartoon strips by divisive United States comic art and writer, Jack Chick, were alleged to have been found in the reference section of the library as reported in The Irish [RAG].
Four cartoon strips, so-called ‘Chick Tracts’, were apparently found, with one supposedly containing a link to the Chick website where a catalogue of 128 more publications, many with [POPERY] as its theme or subject, can be accessed. The material was subsequently branded ‘sectarian’ by a number of individuals who contacted The Irish News. However, Principal Bell told the Leader there is “no evidence” the literature was ever present in the library and nor did any individual bring it to his attention.
THE QUESTION NEEDS TO BE ASKED!!!!!!
IF THESE INFORMATIVE MATERIALS ARE NOT IN THE SCHOOL LIBRARY, WHY AREN’T THEY?!?!
ESPECIALLY FOR THE BENEFITS OF THOSE STUDENTS MOST OF RISK OF DYING IN POPERY AND FENIANISM?!?!?!?
HOW ELSE WILL THEY FINALLY COME TO ENJOY LIVES WITH MEANING?!?!?!
