There are four articles here, each with details re the hot off the press report on clerical sexual abuse in the Archdiocese of Dublin, Ireland. I don’t know enough about the cases to comment on the “no paedophile ring” business, but, take a look, surprise – police in cahoots with clergy and archbishops!
26 November 2009: Irish church and police covered up child sex abuse, says report
Heart breaking and disgusting to see what was going on there – one priest acknowledging 100 victims, another that he molested every two weeks for 25 years – and no one did anything!
The big thing now will be to see where this goes – by the look of it any number of police (gardai) and clergy should be charged with obstruction of justice. I hope the Catholics of Ireland clamour long and hard to see that finally some small semblance of justice is finally done and those who were complicit in the cover-up are charged. Unfortunately only one of the four archbishops is still alive, but – he should be charged. And he should be defrocked.
Finally, I think it goes without saying charges should be laid against every priest identified in the report as an ‘alleged’ molester.
Enough for now,
