It’s a moment when religion, comedy, horror and and science fiction meet.
We’re trapped in the middle of an evil Father Ted singularity.
Just as two devastating reports are released, one of them detailing appalling abuse of children by clerics, and the other setting out how the bishops covered up the crimes committted by their priests, what happens?
In a climate of anger when the Vatican gives the finger to a Commission of Inquiry, what happens?
Just as the reports are published, and bishops are being sacked in all directions, and the entire country rises as one person waking from a Rohypnol coma, what happens?
This is what happens.
Some fucking fool of a substitute priest in Kerry walks up to a convicted sex offender, while wearing a clerical collar, hugs him and says Fair play to ya! She’d be a bit old for me, but everyone to his own.
I would dearly love to have been in the bishop’s office this morning when he sacked the fucking idiot.
