Irish PM blasts ‘disgraceful’ Vatican

Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny lashed out Thursday at the “absolutely disgraceful” role of the Roman Catholic Church in a clerical sex abuse scandal, as Dublin called in the Vatican ambassador.

“This is not about Ireland of long ago, this is about Ireland of contemporary times and it has now got to be dealt with,” he added.

The reaction of the Catholic Church has naturally been to slither evasively and make unctuous noises about how such things shall never happen again.

The Irish government has introduced legislation to require priests to report abuse told to them during confession or face prison.
