Hypocrites strike again.

I notice Belfast City Council has passed a motion condemning Fr Alec Reid's now infamous "Nazi" remarks last month. Now I have made my position clear on this issue - I feel his remarks were unfair, mis-timed and ill-judged. However I am annoyed about the hypocrisy of such selective condemnations in the council. For example, did the council also pass a motion in August condemning the highly inflamatory remarks of Ian Paisley before the Whiterock Parade weekend which undoubtedly helped trigger the rise in tensions that led to such vicious rioting and chaos?
