After the FERNS Report, the RYAN Report and the latest DUBLIN DIOCESE report what questions remain?

category wicklow | rights, freedoms and repression | other press author Sunday July 26, 2009 11:34author by Abuse victim by member of the Catholic Church Report this post to the editors

Proof that there is still a very unhealthy link between An Garda Siochana and the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland.

When one member of the Clergy in the Irish Roman Catholic Church can have another threatened for assisting a member of the laity what more does it take to prove there is still a very unhealthy link between An Garda Siochana and the Roman Catholic Church.

Some Priests are there for the true reason they became a Priest in the first place to take care and give assistance to members of the laity who require it. Others unfortunately over time lose their way not long after their Ordination and taking of their vows and they end up like the hundreds of child abusers now in our midst in this country who have now at last been outed by those they abused and got away with for far too long.

Thankfully the list of SURVIVORS of all kinds of Clerical abuse is growing day by day.

Those who were abused physically as children, those who were abused psychologically as adults by manipulating Clergy serving their own purpose of cover ups and protect the mother Church at all costs.

You can go to the Vatican website and read more about protecting mother Church before all else in the Catholic Church's rules and codes under CANON LAW. These laws which were made to protect the Clergy first and foremost and certainly not the laity.

You can also find the link to Canon Law on the Dublin Diocesan website

For those who find themselves harrassed or intimidated by An Garda Siochana either at the behest of a member of the Clergy or otherwise do please avail of the services of The Garda Ombudsman - that is what the office is there for. Look at all the abuse cases they have resolved in recent years - they have a good track record so get your complaints in FAST.

As am example of the Clergy/Garda link you can check out the thread below to read one such case.

We have all heard of Bishop Eamonn Casey and Fr. Michael Cleary - do we have another case with similar undertones/overtones? You can apply for verbal proof and written transcript if you apply for free copies on line at Clerical Whispers - just go to story Parish in Bray 24 Update to read how to apply for free copies. YOU BE THE JUDGE!!!!

Refer to website to find out more about this WONDERFUL Parish.
