Irish summon Vatican diplomat over abuse cover-up – Yahoo! News

I am, of course, delighted to see that the Irish government continues to take the (deceitful) Vatican to task. Just a few simple quotes from the article:

“Prime Minister Edna Kenny … called the Vatican’s role in placing the church’s own canon law above Irish criminal law ‘absolutely disgraceful.'”

“…vowed to pass legislation that would make it a crime to withhold evidence of child abuse from the police – even information that a priest obtains in the confession booth.”

Is this how priests got away with abusing children for so long? They confessed to each other? Traded names, perhaps? BASTARDS! Hiding behind religion is one thing – manipulating it to fuck little kids is something altogether more heinous!

Here’s the best quote: “Kenny said 21st century Ireland would no longer defer to Catholic authority.”

Erin go bragh!
