Vatican tried to keep Irish child rapist as priest

• AP
The Vatican tried to stop Dublin church leaders from defrocking a particularly dangerous pedophile priest and relented only after he raped a boy in a pub restroom, an investigation reported Friday.

Dublin Archbishop Diarmuid Martin said he fully accepted the findings of the latest chapter in Ireland's investigation into child abuse by Dublin priests who were shielded from the law by Catholic leaders.

Martin called Tony Walsh an "extremely devious man" who should never have been ordained a priest, and said the report highlighted how the church had grown too powerful and arrogant in 20th century Ireland.

As a recovering Catholic  I have come to the conclusion that the Catholic Church is at the very least a cult.  How can anyone with brain remain in this church?

The pope calls for a New World Order....

St Peters square has an Egyption oblisk honoring a pagen god.

 If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck.....
