POLITICAL observations & opinions

* brave politicians in Ireland (and elsewhere) are finally taking the steps needed to bring criminal charges against those in the church hierarchy who have enabled sick priests to commit heinous crimes against children … when the church hierarchy is made to face the consequences for their obstruction of justice, then and only then will the problem of pedophile priests have a chance to be solved

Henry McDonald writes in The Guardian (7/25/11) …

  • The Vatican has recalled its ambassador to Ireland after the publication of a devastating report criticising the church’s handling of clerical sex abuse in county Cork.
  • Vatican Radio said the papal nuncio, Giuseppe Leanza, was being called back to Rome for consultations over the Cloyne report, which accused the church authorities, right up to the Vatican itself, of frustrating attempts by Irish police to investigate numerous complaints against priests relating to child sexual abuse.
  • The Irish prime minister, Enda Kenny, launched a blistering attack last week on the Vatican for what he said was an attempt to frustrate the Cloyne inquiry. He accused the Vatican of downplaying the rape of children in order to protect its power and reputation.
  • The Taoiseach said that since making that speech, he had been inundated with thousands of messages of support.

LMW COMMENT …
