If you were building a power station would you give it to the Franciscans?
Of course not. Why would you? The Franciscans know nothing about running a power station. They’re priests.
If you were setting up an oil refinery, would you give it to the Dominicans? You certainly would not. These guys only know how to run Inquisitions. They’d kill us all.
Would you put Augustinians in charge of the space shuttle? The Poor Clares in charge of water supplies? The Capuchins in charge of airports?
If you were constructing a motorway, would you entrust its design to the Presentation Sisters? If you were setting up a railway, would you give control of it to the Christian Brothers?
No, no, no and no. No, you would not.
And yet bishops still have control over most of our primary schools, and many of our secondary schools, though the State pays the entire cost of operating those schools.
Here we are, building a new national children’s hospital, entirely funded with tax money, and the plan of this government is to hand control of it to the Sisters of Mercy.
This has to be stopped. If the Catholic church are once more to gain control of our State resources, after all that has been revealed about them, we might as well shut the country down and emigrate.
