The Catholic church has behaved like a cult in keeping women and children as second class human beings who were expected to obey the men of God without question.

The influence of this church has infiltrated most Government agencies especially the legal system where once again women and children were often made homeless for refusing to put up with abuse and play happy families. read full story / add a comment

VERONA It happened night after night. Sometimes in the bedroom of the priest, sometimes in the bathroom, sometimes even in the confessional. Alessandro Vantini (now 59) was a deaf boy at a Catholic school, priests abused him so often that it felt "like I was dead".
This year Vantini and dozens of other former students did something very unusual for Italians: They went out with the accusation that they were forced to have s*x with priests. [*due to the following:There were spamwords detected in the content. Post rejected.] read full story / add a comment

Catherine Nevin’s appeal against her conviction for murder began in the Court of Appeal Monday. Ms Nevin was convicted in 2000 of the murder of her husband Tom at their pub, Jack White's Inn, Brittas Bay, on March 19, 1996. It was alleged that she had tried to hire three men to kill him. The person who fired the gun has never been identified or charged. The appeal will be based on evidence that prosecutors failed to disclose at her original trial that witnesses , William McClean and former provos Gerry Heapes and John Jones,were long-standing police informers . Nevin’s lawyer sought access to classified documents including security files which indicate that Mr McClean was a suspect in the Dublin/Monaghan bombings of 1974. Other new matters are being heard.

Catherine Nevin's conviction shocked many, as she was tried surrounded by a media frenzy, in which she was pilloried for looking too good. All the evidence used to convict her was provided by the three witnesses. read full story / add a comment

A letter sent to a number of Belfast Journalists/Newspapers containing serious allegations against myself and two other Belfast Republicans including, Tony (TC) Catney is printed in full below so that fellow Republicans can read for themselves the level of smears against RNU members of late.

I'm disgusted and deeply hurt by the letter and challenge anyone to produce any evidence they have! I also publically challenge the Author of the letter to show publically anything of an evidenial nature such as, times, dates, places and moneys paid by the RUC. So I and my two comrades can properly challenge these scurrilious allegations.

Until then, I'll make no further comment about these slurs apart from an article being printed in tommorrow's Irish News.

The UN mandate 424 demands that Israel return to it's pre '67 borders.
She has refused to do so in 40 years.
Israel 's hegemony in the region is manifest in her military and social expansionist policies .
She ignores the rest of the world , perpetrates whatever atrocities she chooses with impunity. When criticized by the Goldstein report she attacked Goldstein , then attacken the UN for having the timerity to criticize her invasion of Lebanon and killing of over 1400 civilians.
There is one bizarre and paradoxical for a recalibrating the balance of power in the Middle East.... read full story / add a comment

The Bishops met this week in Maynooth for their 3 day spring meeting. Attending the meeting was Ian Elliott, chief executive of the church’s child protection watchdog, the National Board for Safeguarding Children (NBSC). Speaking on the Vatican’s recognitio, he said it could be something of a hindrance. Though the Vatican has not given its recognitio to any framework documents or guide lines the Church has come up with since 1996. He felt at one stage the recognitio granted in America could be used as a contribution to the solution but since has shifted stance. read full story / add a comment

“Are we seeing a test case, to be followed by others in which respected Republicans, who speak out against Stormont, are then threatened with decades old charges? Are the new supergrass laws and wing at Maghaberry part of this strategy? Are the new partnerships and constabulary boards making the constabulary accountable or Sinn Fein accomplices after the fact?” read full story / add a comment
