Catholic priest will back 'Satanic Islam' sermon cleric McConnell in court
by Suzanne Breen
A Catholic priest will join forces with a DUP MP and a Muslim cleric to support Pastor James McConnell when he goes on trial next week for branding Islam "Satanic".
Father Patrick McCafferty and the DUP's Sammy Wilson are both on the defence witness list in the landmark case, which opens in Belfast Magistrates Court next Monday.
Fr McCafferty, a parish priest in Crossgar, last night told the Belfast Telegraph: "I will be delighted to give evidence on behalf of Pastor McConnell. We don't see eye-to-eye on many things but his prosecution is an absolute outrage.
