Sinn Fein has Responded to the Culture Minister

In lightning fashion, Sinn Fein, the political arm of the IRA, has responded to the letter by Nelson McCausland urging the Ulster Museum to include more creationism in their displays (see the post just below this one). In the Londonderry Sentinel, they write:
"The fact that a Culture Minister has used undue influence to seek an arms length body, namely the Ulster Museum, to include matters that are issues close to Nelson's personal beliefs, is wholly unacceptable.
"The letter which written specifies a time frame for changes to be made to current installations at the museum before summer including the issue of creationism, which is clearly a religious viewpoint, and more representation for the Orange Order."
Of course, the letter is not entirely devoid of political jabs:
"Nelson McCausland's partisan view of the world is not that of the vast majority nor is it anything to do with a truly shared future. This is a Culture Minister who speaks of a shared future yet has refused to enter a catholic church, has taken part in sectarian parades through nationalist districts in Belfast, has failed to bring forward a strategy for the development of the Irish language, and his department has previously sent out personal invites to Orange fest.
I said it last post. Politics and science don't mix.
