Ian Paisley, the Political Ecumenical?

I'm sure I don't understand anything at all about the politics of Northern Ireland, but this is about enough to make me a Postmillennialist.

Just after being elected to lead a power-sharing coalition that includes former members of the Irish Republican Army . . .
Paisley, 81, immediately affirmed an oath pledging to cooperate with Catholics and the government of the neighboring Republic of Ireland -- moves that the evangelical firebrand had long denounced as surrender.

Okay as one of the few posties that wander the blogsphere tell me why does this make you desire to come to the correct view of eschatology?

As I wrote on my blog, So Big Ian and the republican Bearded Wonder are going to govern together from today. I wonder what oath they are swearing? Adams and his ilk have always refused to be sworn in as M.P.s are they will not swear loyalty to H.M.
