Ian Paisley, the Irish politician who yelled at John Paul II, dies at 88

2014-09-12

The Former leader of the Democratic Unionist Party in Northern Ireland,  has died at the age of 88. 

Known for his explosive personality and often aggressive style, Ian Paisley was polarizing figure in politics and religion. 

He aggressively and publicly criticized the Catholic Church. In fact, in 1988, during John Paul II's address before the European Parliament, he started yelling anti-Catholic remarks, before being escorted out. 

As years passed, his staunch stance against the Church began to dwindled and he actually made a turn around.  In 2007 he joined an agreement with the Catholic-led political party of the outlawed militant Irish Republican Army. 

Paisley, who suffered from heart problems, died in Belfast.
