Brady is unfit to speak for abused

How dare Cardinal Brady champion the cause of the abused in this country?

He aided and abetted the paedophile Brendan Smyth.

He played judge, jury and executioner with disastrous consequences for innocent children in this country.

Not only should that man resign but there should be an investigation into how one man can singlehandedly usurp the civil authorities of the State.

Smyth was an Irishman raping Irish children and this was a matter for the civil authorities.

Through his intervention, Brady usurped the civil law enforcement, the civil courts, the Justice Minister and, ultimately, the State.

It is a travesty of theological and civil justice that he is still in power.

That man is a disgrace.
