Truth is there for open eyes to see

Sir -- Sinead O'Connor blasted away with all guns blazing (Sunday Independent, July 17, 2011), calling our Church leaders "liars".

The truth has always been there for those with open eyes to see. It has always been there for those who fell under the control of those damaged, socio-pathological power mongers, be they wee children or adults, be they Irish or Aboriginal. Our experience told us everything.

The history of witch-hunting, king-making, land grabbing, of crusades and conquistadors, of colonisers and inquisitors cannot be erased, nor can it be forgiven -- at least not by those who did not survive, not by those who survived and have been so dreadfully 'responded' to, time and time again.
