Not being catholic I have no personal stake in the question, but I wonder
that you have omitted reference to persecution of catholics which has a hardy

vented, for example, in the nasty political cartoons of Nast, and in the "no
Irish need apply" signs at places of business employment throughout the
northeastern US during the middle and late 19th Century.
