Popish japes.

As an agnostic I try not to make comments on other peoples traditional prejudices but I draw the line at having to tolerate hypocrisy.

“The Holy Father shares the outrage, betrayal and shame felt by so many of the faithful in Ireland, and he is united with them in prayer at this difficult time in the life of the church,” the recent Vatican statement said concerning the Murphy report on abuse in the Dublin diocese. “The Holy Father was deeply disturbed and distressed by its contents.”, apparently.

This is hypocrisy in anybody’s book.

While Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith between 1981–2005 the then Cardinal Ratzinger was responsible for the coverup of the abuse. His policy of demanding secrecy and obfuscation prolonged the abuse. He can not feign disturbance or distress as he has known about it and hidden it for almost 30 years.

He cannot share in the outrage, betrayal and shame as he was an active begetter of the same affects.

I refer him and his organisation to Mr Paul Gogarty, TD.

Indeed, shame on this vestment-clad mysoginistic organisation which offers safe harbour to every sort of sexual deviant, pervert and paedophile ring. At least we can identify them, or their association with them by the collars they wear. At least we can warn our kids to stay away from them.

We need a similar type of identification tag for the 50 or so citizens of Listowel who are fully supportive of the perpetrator of a horrific sexual assault on a young woman. And while we’re at it, lets tag the Gardai and court officials who stood by and allowed this to happen without intervention as they flocked past the victim.

Its sickening, beyond minor expletives.
