Ian Paisley praises Sinn Fein over Northern Ireland power-sharing
The former Democratic Unionist leader Ian Paisley has praised Sinn Fein for keeping its word on power-sharing despite the dissident threat.
Mr Paisley told RTE: "What encourages me is the fact that, so far, the Sinn Feiners have kept their word and there's no doubt that there's a hatred coming to them from people that once were with them."
A brief synopsis: Rev. Foster recalls the early days of the formation of the FPC as times of blessing and traces the central role FPC founder Ian Paisley played in the politics of N.I. in later years that led to the "abandonment of prayer meetings for board meetings" and the bitter harvest of division and strife it reaped in its aftermath within the denomination.
The heaviness of heart & deep sorrow with which this man of God solemnly recounts these tragic events is very much reminiscent of the prophet Jeremiah, whose burden it was to denounce the sin of Judah accompanied by weeping and lamentations over them.
I wouldn`t change this Province for anywhere else but.... It`s still a hotbed,always a boiling caldron...just below the surface,like quicksand, waiting for the unwary, no matter who you are, if you say the wrong thing, wether justified or not...get your head down for the rage is raging and it`s coming your way.
