He is a Doctor and wasn't drinking that night.

Wait till Islam gets a hold and people will be crying for some honest RCC guidance.
No religion is honest, but thanks for confirming my point

Yeah thanks, I was a teen when I set up the account, you can blame the education system on my poor literacy skills.
1) *blame your poor literacy skills on the education system
2) How come loads of us are products of Irish education and not going around making Baby Infants errors?

What point?


You are crying over a cross.
And you were grinding your teeth over some other box of frogs having social influence in this country. You'll put up with Sharia Law when it suits your biases, won't you?

The RCC doesn't make peoples lives miserable, not anymore anyway.
People literally cannot access public services, the homeless are turfed out of emergency housing and local people are being locked into their homes for the duration. Church and state oppression, to welcome the head of a paedophile ring.

The RCC has a positive influence upon society in Ireland today, St Vincent De Paul would be a good example of that.

It's so casual among lefties to ridicule and mock religion, only when it's white christians of course.
Try telling that to my aul' lad, who wakes up sweating at night thinking of the beatings he took

How is it a cult?
- No consent under duress in joining - parents baptise for state education
- Religious indoctrination begins at age 4, far before the age of understanding
- Profit-making institution with business interests funded by victims, still refuses to pay legal restitution for abuse by claiming it only follows its own laws
- Vast media reach to cover up crime and silence dissent

Ehh no, they surely knew Ireland was a majority white, christian country when they migrated here.
1) What does skin colour have to do with it?
2) We're a secular Republic, and some of us want to finally throw off the shackles of ideological oppression

So most national schools are Catholic ethos with priest as chairman

When being taught religion, if a child asks what happens a gay couple when they die, what answer does/should teacher give?

So someone called Francis is visiting Ireland this weekend and as his visit is deemed so important, measures have been taken to restrict movement around the city in order to provide a safe and secure event. Fair enough.

However, in order to get around the issue of restricted movement, staff at St James' hospital among other work places have been issued with an "essential worker pass" for passing Garda cordons.

This pass (see below) is endorsed with a government of Ireland logo and also (unfortunately) a papal cross.




As we all know, hospital staff are traditionally from a multi ethnic and religious diverse background. That the State is issuing them a badge necessary for them to get to work next weekend which is emblazoned with a papal cross, is shortsighted if not against the spirit of a secular State.

In summary, the pass is clearly identifiable as being a State issue (government of Ireland/Harp) and should therefore not include religious imagery on it. It is offensive to both the ideals of a secular state and for those who must present it when needs be.
I'm tempted to say GET OVER YOURSELF.

Essential workers? So god wasn't going to intervene if someone had a big problem?

Casting very obvious doubt on the value of the whole proceedings right there....
