Is the Irish Language Sectarian

Irish speakers use phrases such as Dia Guit and It gets worse Dia Agus Marie Guit and worse again Dia Agus Marie agus Marie agus Padraig Guit. Slan Agus Bennacht is constantly used on RTE
Is it time now to dispense with these phrases and secularise the Irish Language or will there be resistance to change.

What do you mean by resistance to change?

Ive hardly ever heard Irish speakers using the second two phrases. Most people say 'hi' or 'conas 'tá tú?' or 'conas 'tá cursaí?' when they meet each other.

For those who want Irish to survive religious phrases in the language are the least of their worries.

The link between the Irish language and Catholicism is an issue worth discussing.
Another good thread from dafty. Keep up the good work.

I agree 👍 well worth pursuing as most of our European countrymen view is as still unde contract of the bishops

conas ta tu. Is not the same as helo ( Mc Greal 1948)
Regarding including Mohammed and Budda we should also include people like Joseph Smith ( Mormon) and Ron Hubbard of Scientology?
