SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 22, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Why prejudice? Why discrimination?

In the 1700s to 1800s, the Irish were castigated "savages" by the English who also enslaved them. About the year 385, Saint Patrick was born in Great Britain. He was sold into slavery and forced to rear sheep. For years he was forced to endure hardship until he escaped and entered the seminary to become a priest. He later became a bishop and worked hard at converting the Irish while establishing a church. He died in Down in 461. Stories of this sort exist today.
