Last night, another spectacularly entertaining evening of “mock” sectarian hatred and people dressed up as North American Indians.
This year the bonfires were on the 4th because they don’t hold the event on the sabbath. Don’t forget, after all, that this is religiously motivated. Lewes’ Jireh Chapel is, I believe, the only church of Ian Paisley’s fanatically protestant Free Presbyterians in England. There’s also an article on ianpaisley.org in which the Rev talks about the Romanist conspiracy and describes the Lewes bonfires as a “vital reminder”.
