God and the Gun: The Church and Irish Terrorism

by Martin Dillon - £35.99  Taylor & Francis Ltd (1999)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780415923637 | ISBN 10: 0415923638

'Faith and fatherland are indivisible ingredients of the conflict and have produced barbarity.'
God and the Gun asks Roman Catholic and Protestant paramilitaries how they can reconcile murder with their Christian convictions, and what the men of God - the clerics themselves - should or could do to stop the killing. Martin Dillon is the first to talk directly to the churchmen and the terrorists about how religious conditioning and history have led inexorably to political violence. From Billy Wright - loyalist hardman - to Eileen, a leading member of the women's branch of the IRA, to Father Pat Buckly - prepared to break the confessional seal to save a Unionist MP from assassination, the testimony of those on the frontline of guerrilla warfare is both astonishing and terrifying.
