    Same as it ever was. Colm O’Gorman has a series of tweets in relation to the last papal visit. While Francis might not be as complicit in the coverup and protection of clerical rapists and abusers, he’s not the New Broom his PR suggests he is.

        The Vaticanal “waggy finger”. Will they let him live in seclusion in the Vatican with the rest of the secluded?

    Politicians and former politicians who have been exposed should be stripped of their oireachtas pensions and ordered to live in seclusion i.e. no photo-ops or appearances on television.

    if they were in any way genuine they would “order” those abusers to hand themselves over to the police and to fully cooperate with any investigation & fully commit to funding any damages granted to victims. Absolutely rotten to the core

      Sure didn’t they go to confession and say a few hail Mary’s. Aren’t they grand.
