WOW, what a great speech by Enda Kenny! He has the whole country on his side, the people have gone hysterical. At last, someone to stand up to the church.

  • Go To

The Government wants to break the seal of confession and the Papal Nuncio expelled -- and the media are clapping the Government on the back. Ruari Quinn wants all the schools taken out of the hands of the church, Eamon Gilmore is bringing the church in for a dressing down and never once does the State share the blame.

We all know the details of the wrongdoings by certain men and women who belonged to the church. Hopefully justice will prevail now. Millions have been paid in compensation to the victims and apology after apology has been made. Is the same drum going to be beaten forever? We don't expect Germany to keep paying for World War Two.
