Trioblóidí na hEaglaise

category national | irish social forum | opinion/analysis author Saturday February 27, 2010 23:37author by Risteard Ó Faoláin Report this post to the editors

Bíonn a lán scannal ag baint leis na hEaglaise le déanaí. Mo thuairm, faoi stad na hEaglaise anois.

Anuraidh, bhí stad na hEaglaise, an instidúid is cumhachtaí i gcursaí soisialta agus rudaí mar sin sa tír seo ar feadh na gcéadta anuas, croite ar fad. D'fhoilsigh na tuairiscí Ó Murchú agus Ó Riain sa samhraidh agus i mí Shamhna- ba chúiseanna iad chun an gearrchéim muinín, an ionadh, agus an fearg i gcoinne na hEaglaise i measc an Phobail le déanaí. Conas a bhí leasadh leanaí neamhurcóideach, iad a bhí freagrach dona hEaglaise (eagraíocht Críostúil, tuisceanach is dóigh) tréigthe? Nuair a ghluaistear sagartaí pheidifiligh timpeall pharóistí, tar éis buarthaí faoin a gcuid iompar, conas a chuirtear chomh mhéad páistí i suite contúirtach?

Níl aon freagair ag an Eaglais, mar níl aon leithscéal chun an iompar seo a tuiscint- seachas go raibh na leanaí íseal ar buarthaí na cliarlathas. Bhí cumhacht an Eaglais níos tábhachtacht ná leasadh na soghanta, dar liom. Mar tuata, agus saoránach Eireannach, tá allacht agus buile orm ag iompar na hEaglaise.

Sa scoileanna tionsclaí, na háiteanna a seoladh na húdaráisí Stáit óna gcúirteanna páistí ag baint le coirpeachas beag, bhí an t-atmisféar agus an eagraíocht go leor in aghaidh grá nó cóir don pháistí. Bhaineann pheidifiligh oilc mí usáid as páistí, iad a feictear mar rudaí salach, toisc go raibh siad as na lucht oibre. Bhí siad ar barr an tsochaí, agus cé go bhfuil Eireann poblacht ag an am sin, agus anois, níor chuirtear an dlí ar aon sagart pheidifiligh ag an am sin. Chomh maith le sin, bíodh fulaingt mór ar na páistí ag baint le obair trom acu, agus na foréigean in aghaidh leo. Tá a fhios ag morán daoine, na hEaspaig, na húdaráisí, beagnach éinne sa tír chomh uafásach a bhí na scoileanna- ach ní raibh sé inghlactha, na hEaglaise a ceisteadh. Is rud náirúil é seo- mar tír, tugadh cosaint an leanaí is boichte sa tír dona hEaglaise, eagraíocht lán le leithscéalta, rúin, fuath, agus buartha faoi cumhacht.

Anois, níl aon áit dona hEaglaise i gcúram leanaí agus daoine mar sin. Níl aon muinín agam, agus morán daoine ann. Ní féidir leo móraltacht a muineadh, nuair a bhíodh siad na daoine is oilce in Éireann. Caithfimid phoblacht ceart a fháil, áit fáiltúil agus gan fimíneacht, an cineál ag baint leis an Eaglias. Sa 21 haois déag, is é an t-am chun meas fíor don gach duine sa tír a thabhairt. Gan an meas seo, is féidir scannal ón blianta ó shin a n-athrá arís.
