Saint Patrick wasn’t Irish; he was British and sent to Ireland as a slave. He escaped, returned home, became a Roman Catholic priest.
Saint Patrick wasn’t an immigrant; he was a missionary priest. Google the difference. Educate yourself.
Saint Patrick didn’t profess religious tolerance. He was an advocate of one faith: Roman Catholicism. He traveled to Ireland to CONVERT the Irish to Roman Catholicism.
Saint Patrick’s Day isn’t about Ireland: Christmas isn’t about Santa Claus. Saint Patrick’s Day is a religious Roman Catholic feast day that honors the sanctity of a faithfilled priest.
You’re either against cultural appropriation or you’re not. Grow a pair. Define your beliefs.
If you’re celebrating Saint Patrick’s Feast Day today and you’re not Roman Catholic – consider yourself the Iggy Azalea or Justin Timberlake of the Christian world.
Let’s honor the Saint today and eliminate your ignorance.
Look up the definition of hypocrisy.
Look up the definition of cultural appropriation.
Look up the definition of sciolism.
You want to make political points – don’t use facts that are polar opposites of the facts.
And to all my Roman Catholic friends – happy Saint Patrick’s Feast Day.
