Kevin Myers: ‘Church is not responsible for all our woes’
THE late Mary Raftery was rightly a muchrespected and muchloved journalist. And what follows is certainly not criticism of her or her achievements, but of our Great Single Narrative.
Once upon a time, the Great Single Narrative of Ireland was largely provided by the Catholic Church.
Now it comes from the new clergy in the secular media. In this current GSN, the hapless Irish people were oppressed by a sadistic caste of sexually depraved priests, who raped, brutalised and violated children at their ease, immune to all legal consequence.
