    Noted anti-Roman Catholic bigot Ian Paisley will step down as the leader of Ulster's Democratic Unionist Party. However, he'll remain a Member of Parliament.

    I thought this would be about Sinead O'Connor.

    Good riddance. The guy is nuts. Among his more memorable quotes, he once called Pope John Paul II the antichrist.

    If there is a Popeophobe, then there must also be a Popeophone.

    Which you use, I suppose, to summon the Popemobile.

    Little known fact. Ian Paisley was the original Mr. Orange in Reservoir Dogs.

    That man is quite the bigotted mess. That he continued the way he was for so long is truly one of the craziest things I will ever see.

    I am no fan of the issues in Norn Iron. I hope for the day that they can desegregate their schools and remove religion from their public office.
