Church's leadership is morally bankrupt

WAITING for a genuine apology from the Catholic Church or compliance with recommendations from inquiries into child abuse is pointless.

This institution has had decades to put its house in order and the Cloyne Report demonstrates its continued reluctance to do so.

In one case, Bishop Magee produced one true account of events for the Vatican and a falsified version for the diocesan files.

This demonstrates clearly that the church's leadership is morally bankrupt.
