Cardinal Sean Brady ashamed of abuse 'failings'
As a priest in 1975 Cardinal Sean Brady was at meetings where children signed vows of silence over complaints against paedophile priest Fr Brendan Smyth.
How more outrageous can this get? We have the head of the Irish catholic church, not only a priest, but the fucking head of the Irish Catholics admitting to being present while kids were told not to talk about the abuse they had been victims. If this isn't evil, then I don't know what is.
But there is more:
On Tuesday, the Catholic Church in Ireland released more details about why Cardinal Brady asked two victims, aged 10 and 14, to sign secrecy agreements.I can't imagine how this could have gone. Maybe "Ok boys, don't you say anything about how we abused, touched, caressed and sodomized you, because, you know, this could be bad for the church to which you and I belong. Yes, I know you are now scarred for life, I know we are against homosexuality and I know we just committed a crime that could land us in jail in any country, but don't you say anything. Hypocrisy? No, it is not, because... well, it is, but we are the Catholic Church, I mean, the fucking Catholic Church, founded by the Son of God himself. So we don't care. Now, on your knees and start sucking again. And this time, swallow it and imagine it's a liquid host"
The church said the boys were asked to sign oaths "to avoid potential collusion" in evidence-gathering for an internal church inquiry.
Sounds awful, doesn't it? Well, according to the releases, this was not the only case, but the abuse went on for years.
The church statement did not explain why either Cardinal Brady or his superiors at the time did not share their information with the police. Fr Smyth went onto abuse more children in the following years.
Delivering his St Patrick's Day mass on Wednesday, Cardinal Brady said: "This week a painful episode from my own past has come before me.
I bet it was more painful for the victims, so, I'm sorry, but can't feel sorry for those priests. Nor for the catholic church in general, which deserves to be criticized and looked down. We are not talking about just one priest or one case. We are talking about several cases that were known by the very high officials and no one said anything. If now they feel sorry and apologize it's just because this report came out. Otherwise, nothing would have been said.
So, my catholic friends, this is the kind of shepherd you, not necessarily follow, but the one supported by that institution named Catholic Church
