Ian Paisley’s son blasted the Prime Minister of British Occupied Ireland as a “condescending ignoramus” over his insulting remarks on Muslims. Prime Minister Peter Robinson has refused to issue a public apology over supporting an anti-Islamic preacher Pastor McConnell who caused controversy when he blasted Islam as "satanic".
Rev Paisley, a Presbyterian Minister in England, said that there are "irreconcilable differences between the theology of Biblical Protestantism and the theology of traditional Islam", but this was "no reason for any man to go out of his way in order to insult Allah".
Paisley slated the current DUP leader as "a condescending ignoramus" for saying he would only trust Muslims to "go down to the shop." "His remark leaves a deep stain on his own reputation, the reputation of his party and the reputation of the religion he professes to believe in," Rev Paisley said.
The minister went on to criticise the DUP including his twin brother Ian for not speaking out."It beggars belief that thus far not one within his party has the nerve to publicly challenge him. Sometimes silence is golden. In this case it is plain yellow. If I was on the receiving end of that remark, and somebody said I wouldn't trust a Protestant except to go to the shop to buy me something, I would look upon that as a condescending remark."
