Irish PM:time to move Catholic church from the centre of society

That is not a good sign when the Prime Minister makes a sppech like this during a visit by the Pope. This is a low point.

This PM is incredibly tiresome. The only time I hear about him doing anything is when he’s blasting the Pope. He seems to be a huge attention seeker and I do not see him doing anything positive for Ireland. I will be glad to see the last of him, he seems like a big opportunist.

I watched his welcome speech to pope Francis. He seemed to be speaking out of both sides of his mouth.

A good question to ask him is what exactly he wants to put at the centre of Irish society. In the unlikely chance he gives a straight answer then you will see his true colours.

I keep on pleading with the church, please stop seeing these types of people as friends and allies. They are not.

I think Irish society has already spoken about where they want the Church in their
lives with their vote.


#6

Probably the same thing the Dem party in the U.S. wants at the center of our society; abortion on demand.


#7

Sadly, Pope Francis is giving him plenty of ammunition with which to blast.


#8

Without Catholicism, Ireland is just another Alderney, but bigger. Just one more island in a wild ocean, dependent on bigger countries.


#9

I will believe all this business about Ireland not being Catholic when I see them turning down tourism money from all the Catholic pilgrims who buy out the NAWAS tours to places like Knock every year.
