•The smartest move the Government has made since coming into office has been to announce the closure of Ireland's embassy to the Vatican.
This is a state that has never been a friend of this country. Despite what a lot of misguided people might think, the Vatican is a state that creates quite a lot of hunger and misery throughout this world as it interferes in the personal lives of innocent but gullible people who listen to the advice of its 'high priest', the Pope in Rome, who tells them family planning is a mortal sin, and that children who die from hunger go up to heaven where God will take care of them.
The Pope and his cronies live like lords in palaces while preaching the virtues of poverty to their followers.
