Scotland consistently sectarian

Not just a problem confined to the West of Scotland, apparently:
"The first major study of new anti-bigotry laws in Scotland shows that 635 people were accused of religiously aggravated offences between January 2004 and June 2005."
Cardinal Keith O'Brien was quick as ever to play the victim card, claiming it was indicative of anti-Catholicism in Scotland.

Of course it is but the report showed that there is anti-Protestantism too. Statistics aren't my strong point but doesn't a 30% share of all 'religiously aggravated' offences by a 'faith community' that represents only 16% of the population represent quite an impressive result for the hoop-wearing community?

Cardinal Keef didn't share with us any thoughts he may have had about what that represented.

Calling Laban Tall.
