GUEST,Annraoi BS: Catholic Bishop and Priest Scandal (132* d) RE: BS: Catholic Bishop and Priest Scandal 06 Apr 02

Uglier is right!
Priests are now being pre-judged and - condemned by nasty implication. May I quote Guest (anonymous, naturally!):
"A PRIEST who died after driving his car into the sea will be buried today in the grounds of the church where he was parish priest for the last seven years. Fr Michael O'Grady, 58, will be buried on the grounds of St Michael's Church in Tubber, Co Clare, two days after he drove off the pier in Liscannor."
Given the rabid anti-Catholic tone of this thread which is using - I strongly suspect - the horrendous and disgusting incidents of child abuse as an excuse to attack the Church, this unfortunate priest presumed to have been a paedophile.
The truth is not quite as salacious nor exciting. The unfortunate man had a history of psychiatric disorder and clinical depression. Not the slightest hint of paedophilia had ever been linked to his name.
I now await the apologies from all those on this list who jumped to the wrong conclusion
I won't hold my breath during the wait.
God rest his soul.
