I have not visited Ireland to see the so-called Peace Fountain.
I have Irish ancesrty and happended upon this article. What
is clear to me is the blatant New World Order theme. The
rising phoenix IS the epitome of the NWO and America is leading
the way to a One World Government.
This statue was made with voluntarily surrendered weapons.
Once weapons are made illegal then they can make a statue
with confiscated weapons that are melted down. Now isn't
True peace comes from God and not man.
If all those well meaning people had spent their $350,000.00
to tell others about God then some may have come to know
No God = No Peace - Know God = Know Peace John 3:16

Sadly I have not had the opportunity to visit the peace statue.
My response to the photograph of the creation is one of puzzlement:
it reminds me of the kind of art that flourished behind the
iron curtain of Stalinist Europe. A musclar, clanking, piece
heavy in symbolism and unintended irony (given that many of
the weapons that circulated in Ireland were funded by contributions
from the good ole USA). A more accurate representation of
the road towards peace would be a huge hole gouged from the
earth by explosives over which a fragile, Carrickareed type,
rope bridge would be suspended allowing members of the public
to cross as far as their fear would let them.

I study in Coleraine and have walked passed this sculpture
many times taking notice of how beautifull it is but nothing
more. After reading this article I will be making the time
to stop and have a closer look.

I loved this article. I am from the state of Missouri in America,
and I will be coming to Coleraine soon to set up Healing Rooms
for people of all denominations to receive Faith Healing from
our Lord. The "Peace Fountain" is a step in the right direction.
We will pray for "Peace" throughout Ireland, North as well
as South, combined together.
God Bless you.
