Ian Paisley compared to St Patrick
A leading Northern Ireland academic and archaeologist, Dr Richard Warner, has said that the leader of the Democratic Unionist Party and the Free Presbyterian church, Dr Ian Paisley, displays many similarities to St Patrick.
The Universe reports that in a lecture entitled 'St Patrick - The Man and The Myth' at the Ulster Museum, where he works, Dr Warner claimed Dr Paisley and Ireland's patron saint had certain characteristics in common.
"From my reading of St Patrick's writings and what I observe about Dr Paisley, both had something in common, including very great strength of purpose and an unshakeable belief in the Word of God," he said.
