Comment #5949052 by Gerry Dunne

Gerry Dunne Mar 6th 2017, 1:59 PM #

The catholic church should be banished from Ireland for the litany of crimes it has bestowed on the people. Catholic churches should all be demolished so as this criminal empire is no longer on show in our country. Any catholics who dont agree with this are free to take the boat to Rome and experience how Irish women have been treated having to leave the country because of hogwash doctrine spewed fron the pulpits.

    @Elle Belle: No other religion had a part in shaping our current laws, so moot point really.

    Gerry – I have spent 30 years outside of this Island and never schooled here. I have now been back 14 years and I question what will be the straw that breaks the Irish people’s back. At what point will the apathy and defence fade away, at what point will parents say NO, you have raped thousands of Irish children, sold thousands of Irish children, murdered many children, beaten my parents, oppressed my mother and grandmother, instilled in us that we were born dirty and sinful, that sex is filthy and the work of the devil, that my friends and relatives are intrinsically disordered, you no longer have the right to pontificate and you shall have no further access to the most precious commodity we have in this land, our children. When do we say NO MORE? When will become a true republic?

    Calm down.
    If you could stomach it, walk into a church today. You won’t get attacked.

    My kids went to catholic schools and are healthy balanced people.
    You need to lose the hatred. It will consume you.

    You are stuck in the past.
    Why don’t you go down outside the American embassy and protest against apartheid, McCarthyism, slave trade or any other wrong doing of generations gone.

    On the way home to Dalkey stop at the British embassy and protest against ‘no Irish need apply’ adverts in the newspaper. Also the discrimination against Catholics in NI.

    There comes a time to move on and change with the changed times.

    I lived in the uk in the 80′s when you say your Irish they think ‘bombs’.

    If you say you’re Irish now they think Louis Walsh.

    State run institutions have done just as bad as church run. Wherever you have adults and vulnerable children this will happen unless the adult are vigguressly watched and evaluated.

    @Gerry Dunne: the Catholic Church, with others, are one of the few major groups with the guts to defend unborn, defenceless, innocent, babies against being aborted to death in the womb.

    This is why the anti Catholic , pro abortion fanatic bigots, attack it.

    @Mick Rick Jones: But once the babies are born it’s ok to let them die and stick ‘em in a sceptic tank or if they turn out to be gay they can be written off or if a priest molests them better to protect the priests.
    YaY for Catholics sticking up for the unborn!

    Tom Burke – you live your life by teachings of a two thousand year old book based on the stories of illiterate middle eastern goat herders and you accuse me of living in the past, you must be a parody account.

    Instead of keep saying I live in Dalkey and I am engaged with Cuala come and introduce yourself, I am the 6’4″ fella ordinarily with a London Irish kit on.

    @Niamh Kenneally: Read some history. All churches here then , were consulted when our Constitution was written.

    Now, today, most reasonable people agree that killing babies deliberately and needlessly, in the womb by abortion, is not good for the babies, their mothers or society.

    Exploiting the Tuam tragedy of 50 years ago, to attack the brave present day prolife stance of the Catholic church, as Smith does, is despicable.

    Brid Smith, AAA/PBP, and the anti 8Th pro abort fanatics, think it is. Vote them, and their abortion on demand, anti 8th agenda, out

    @Mick Rick Jones: Most of the Christian faiths opposed the Eight Amendment back in 1983. It was only the Roman Catholic Church which wanted its dogma in the Irish Constitution.

    “All churches here then, were consulted when our Constitution was written.”

    Are you saying that all faiths had a hand in writing our constitution and it wasn’t overwhelmingly Catholic? Where will I read what the statistics were, please?

    I don’t know what it says in the 2,000 yr old book about being rude and disrespectful on social media but I’ll have a look.

    6′ 4″, wow that’s tall.
    Is this the part where I’m supposed to be afraid?

    If you had hair you would be even taller.

    Tom – there is nothing confidential about defending child rapists with an anonymous name you cowardly little catholic.

    I was educated in England Tom in a secular environment and then went to the London School of Ecomics for my degree and then I did two post grads and was subsequently awarded another. I don’t think you could get any less catholic than LSE.

    My name is my name.
    What would you like me to call myself?
    I use twitter only for the journal as I don’t tweet or twit.

    Would you like me to put up my address?
    I suppose I could put up a photo but I might have the ladies after me.

    Seriously though. I wouldn’t put up my photo when I oppose abortion.
    The pro life people all look sensible.
    Many (not all I concede) of the pro abortion lot look like they would glass you.

    Could you imagine the AAA or PPF lot calling around?

    They never call to the more affluent areas at election time.

    @Gerry Dunne: That was tried for 100′s of years during the penal laws.Churches were decimated just as you describe. And Catholics were murdered for their faith, not just sent out of the country.

    Well it did not work then, in fact it came back stronger than ever.

    It won’t work now either.
