← Only secular schools will overcome sectarianism

I went to school in the west coast of Scotland and the non catholic schools were effectively protestant schools. I only met anyone who was clearly neither protestant nor catholic when a family of ugandan asians appeared in my final year at school.

There was one celtic supporter who was regularrly beaten up though as I recall not for supporting celtic but for coming from a mixed family ie catholic mother and protestant father even though he was raised a protestant it did not save him. He was the only "catholic" I knew of at the school.

As a Partick Thistle supporter I was merely pitied.
