Cloyne Sex Abuse Case — Cardinal Brady Stands By Magee

Cardinal Seán Brady sees no reason why Bishop Magee should resign. Magee has had a painful lesson, Seán reckons, and now he should be allowed to get on with protecting children. Just look into that logic of that. Seán Brady thinks the right man to protect children from sex abuse is someone who ignored victims’ complaints and had a policy of providing minimal information to the police. Brady thinks Magee is a dependable and reliable person, and of course, he’s right about that. After all, Magee discovered the murdered Pope John Paul I, elected by mistake, and could be depended and relied on to keep his mouth shut about the extremely sinister aspects of that case. Magee kept quiet, and eventually ended up as a Bishop in the diocese of Cloyne. Djenkuje, Johnny, said the new Polish Pope, John Paul II. We won’t see ya stuck. Good man. Just don’t write a book, OK? And there you go. Johnny didn’t write a book. Johnny kept his trap shut and that keeps the Vatican happy, and of course, Brady is the Vatican’s man. According to Brady, Magee will now do everything in his power to ensure that clerical sexual abuse doesn’t happen in his diocese again. Hold on a minute. Am I missing something here? Does Brady not get it? This isn’t a new part of the job description for a bishop. This isn’t some radical ground-breaking discovery. It was always Magee’s job to prevent clerical sexual abuse, but he didn’t understand that, and Brady doesn’t seem to understand it either. They still don’t get it and the spin continues. He has begun to address these serious issues, says Brady. He has published the report, and apologised. He has introduced changes which need to be continued to ensure and to keep safeguarding at the top of the list of priorities. Listen. For six months he suppressed the report through empty legal threats and he only published it in the end because he had no choice. He apologised? Talk is cheap. He introduced changes to keep safeguarding at the top of the list of priorities? Correction. Safeguarding was never at the top of his priority list. That’s what his own report shows. That’s why he’s in trouble. They just don’t get it and they won’t get it until they’re forced to understand. Not only does Magee need to resign, but he also needs to be removed by the Minister from his position as patron of the schools in his diocese. Then he might have the time he needs to reflect on a life less useful, and maybe write that book after all.

  1. Jaysus Bock,the missus says i can only have 30 mins on your site at a time as it makes me so angry.I am well aware of the subjects you bring up but you write so well it becomes ,well i don’t know…you put your points across in such an emotional and vivid way,it either provokes moronic (c*cksucker guy),intelligent (St Ledger) or in my case angry,emotions.
    I don’t want to talk for other people but can i say that I appreciate the time,effort and passion you put into what you do..
    Now if you don’t mid ,i’m off to smoke a joint of very lovely weed and chill out….

  2. Why was Magee demoted from his high profile job in the Vatican and sent to Cork ? A major demotion I would have thought.
    Why does he feel so secure in his present position.?
    Is he threatening to reveal secrets from his time in the Vatican?
    Why has Brady changed his mind.?


  3. I cannot believe this is really happening. Like many who left Ireland some years ago and have only gone back for occasional holidays, I thought the old Catlick church-ridden culture was a thing of the past. But, from reading your blog, Bock, it appears it is still alive and well at the upper echelons of Irish society, i.e., among the politicians and arselickers who keep them in power. Otherwise Magee would not be “asked” to resign, he and his bloody cardinal pal would be locked up in prison and the keys thrown away. A few years as the sex toys of someone called Bubba would teach them real remorse for what they’ve allowed, nay facilitated, to happen to so many children. The whole farrago makes me puke.

  4. I note that another reason given for his retention is that he would ‘be in a better position to assist any investigation.’ Suck on that one for a while.

    So if he stepped down, the new guy would burn all the papers or something? He would suffer post-traumatic memory loss? What??

  5. i saw brady on the telly lastnight and it made me sick to my stomach. i expect to hear bullshit and lies whenever watching tv but i was appalled by that man.

  6. I have worked with survivors of sexual abuse for many years and believe me no action of the Catholic Church could surprise me at this stage. From the moment the first priest kept silent about sexual abuse the safety and welfare of children was completely compromised, sidelined and ignored. No surprises then that Sean Brady would take this particular stance, its disgraceful and immoral but it certainly is not surprising.

  7. I wonder if catholics boycotted their local churches every sunday and held up placards demanding this undescribable persons sacking would it work. is their a more arrogant bastard on these islands. I honestly think if I met him I would not be able to refrain from giving him a right hander. he is a dispicable person. fuck him out.

  8. We all know who the Abuser is, The Church know who he is, The DPP know who he is, They cannot get him because his victims cannot remember Time and Dates, Why well that is the question, I would suggest Trickery and hypnotism. He has destroyed many people who are still traumatised and yet he can be seen at the various horse race meeting up and down the length and breadth of the land, AND YES THE CHURCH HAVE KNOWN FOR YEARS!!!! BUT IT IS A CASE OF PROCTECT THE PRIEST AND THE BANK ACCOUNT AND CALL THE VICTIMS LIARS

  9. Apperantly the priest at the center of the Cloynes sex scandal is about to be defrocked, There are mores reports of abuse of young women dating back 35years and the gaurds are investigating theses cases for the victims. If he is defrocked and the church cut him loose surely this is tantamount to an admission of guilt by the church , This Man has destroyed the lives of women in Parishes all over north Cork. So Ask your sisters, your niece ‘s even if they are now in their late 40’s were they ever hypnotised or interfered with after school in a priests house, or whilst receiving career guidence.

  10. The Priest in question is living on church property in Castlemagner near Kanturk, Father B they call him,
    Does that B stand for bolex???
    Are his initials DD? The gaurds in Mallow have gone out to bring him in for questioning on various occasions and he feigns illness, He has been suffering from that yuppie flu for years, He will meet an horrible death. Surely there is a place where those who abuse the innocents go,, May he rot in hell and all those in the Catholic church who support him, If they had an ounce of decency why would they call the survivors of his abuse alleged victims, Devients every one of them from the POPE down, and we think Politicans are corrupt sure ther church taught them.,
