Kenny's rant did not make me feel proud

I AM bewildered by the complimentary reporting of Mr Kenny's speech. The Vatican is a state that is unlikely to retaliate, either militarily, or impose sanctions, so he was on safe ground.
One would consider that a dignified head of government may have dealt with the matter through diplomatic channels.
Personally, I found the content of his speech offensive and it did nothing to revive my pride in the country. Quite the reverse, in fact.
