Catholics object to Irish law requiring them to stop covering up the rape of children.

Catholics object to Irish law requiring them to stop covering up the rape of children.

Cardinal Sean Brady called the practice of hiding child rapists a "sacred and treasured" rite.

The Archbishop of Armagh said "any intrusion upon it is a challenge to the very basis of a free society".

The government of Ireland, in the mean time, insists that aiding and abetting is aiding and abetting even when you do it because the voices in your head tell you to.

    "Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them."
    Ephesians 5:11

    I'm pretty sure that's in their Bibles, too.
    And confession, despite what the Catholics seem to think, is the antithesis of hush-hush secrecy.

      I would like to think that at some point, people who quote random Bible excerpts as some sort of proof that followers of said Bible are being hypocritical (or perhaps as some sort of shaming attempt) will realise that this doesn't work, not least because said followers can always fall back on that bit about the Devil quoting scripture to suit himself.

      Also because they're rarely following the Bible; rather, they're following an interpretation of it that suits them.

      (explicitly NOT defending anything going on in my country now or in the past)

      • Adolf Osborne says:

        I think we all follow an interpretation of the Bible that suits us, even if that means discarding it wholesale.

        (Substitute "Bible" for any other holy book as appropriate.)

      • Ben Brockert says:

        Good work not defending the rape of children! Maybe in twenty years you'll have evolved beyond merely not condoning it.

    It's an open atttack on the principle of confession, and yes, It's a fucking pillar of catholicism.
    Breaking it means everybody can go evangelical/protestant kthxbye.

    They'll fight to the last man, and the whole thing will be portrayed by the protestant press as a "they want to keep touching children gnah gnah gnah gnah" that's so lame of everybody.
