Ireland: Parliament Blames Vatican For Covering Up Pedophile Cases
Irelandâ€™s lawmakers on Wednesday accused the Vatican of encouraging Roman Catholic bishops not to tell the police about priests who were suspected of being pedophiles and of flouting Irish law. The rare denunciation of the Holy Seeâ€™s influence in this predominantly Catholic country came just a week after the government issued a report accusing the Vatican of sabotaging Irish bishopsâ€™ 1996 decision to begin reporting suspected cases of child abuse to the police.
Interesting the PM thinks this church will be penitent. or should that of course will never happen. If he cares for his family and friends, he should leave the Romish Church.
I had an uncle whose wife's family left the Romish Church, because the RCC demanded $500 dollars before they would let her (I assume her brother) to become a priest! This would be a lot of money at the turn of the 20th century. His family left the Romish Church. Unfortunately, the father never let the family say anything bad about the Romish Church I don't think that had positive results.
