Letter to the Editor: Read what Irish PM said about church hierarchy


I gather that Mr. Flathers was disappointed with my recent letter.

President Obama is making a laudable effort to ensure that all of our people have healthcare - particularly those who work and the least fortunate among us. Some are trying to frustrate him. The Catholic bishops are among the prominent among them.

Mr. Flathers might have given some rationale for the bishop's (and the Church's) rule. I'll grant you that that would be difficult. Perhaps I should have addressed this issue as almost all of our Catholics have - don't argue about it; simply disregard an indefensible edict.

If Mr. Flathers thinks he can sweep my "cartoon" issue under the rug, I refer him to the statement about the church hierarchy given in the recent past by the prime minister of Ireland.

Bob Lowerre, Woodstock


It is important to follow the football-type coverup:

Google "The Cloyne Report"

It all begins with the 426 page investigative report by Ireland's Commission of Investigation into the handling by Church and State authorities of allegations and suspicions of child sexual abuse against 19 clerics of the Catholic Diocese of Cloyne.

The complete PDF document, "The Cloyne Report" is available here :

Google " irish prime minister catholic church" for numerous reliable sources reporting on the Prime Ministers charges against the Catholic Church.

Think Catholic priests abusing children is a rare occurrence? Think again. It is a worldwide problem. Wherever the Catholic church has influence there are priests sexually abusing children. See for yourself:

Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests

Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests - Press Releases 2011

Archive of 10 years of national and international news stories about Catholic priest abuse of children and coverups by the Bishops and the Vatican.

Thanks for the links to SNAP, especially the news article archives.

I often wondered how truly widespread was the homosexual abuse committed by priests against the members of their churches. I took some time to look through the SNAP archives of news articles and they led me to think Catholicism is not a religion in the real sense of that meaning. From top to bottom, it is an organized sex ring populated by closet homosexuals. Those priests who are not homosexuals believe they can proselytize and "cure" their afflicted brethren simply by pronouncing the right choice of words, as in "you are being transferred to another diocese where you are not known as a pedophile".

Somehow, that bearded deity that lives in the sky and grants magical wishes isn't listening to their prayers this time, instead allowing these monsters in clerical garb to destroy the lives of innocent children.
