253m Euros still outstanding on Catholic Church abuse compensation promise

The Catholic Church still has to pay the State more than half of the compensation money it promised to give for victims of physical and sexual abuse.

The Joint Oireachtas Public Accounts Committee heard this morning that while 480m had been promised, only 227m had actually been paid out.

Correspondence from the Department of Education showed that a further 253m was outstanding.

The chair of the PAC, Sean Fleming, said the balance should be paid as it was "money due to the State".

I assume we're all shocked that they're holding out on paying the price for their crimes.

Protester at church yells 'Shame on You!' as Cardinal Wuerl addresses sex abuse scandal

As the embattled Archbishop of Washington, Cardinal Donald Wuerl, addressed the Catholic Church's clergy sexual abuse scandal on Sunday, one Catholic yelled "Shame on you!" while another turned her back on Wuerl in protest.

Wuerl, who faces accusations that he mishandled clergy sexual misconduct while he was a bishop in Pittsburgh, addressed Washington's Annunciation Catholic Church, where the cardinal was installing a new pastor. In a short speech after the Mass, Wuerl asked the 200 or so people in the congregation to forgive his "errors in judgment" and "inadequacies."

Wuerl also urged the parish to pray for and remain loyal to Pope Francis, as "increasingly it is clear that he is the object of considerable animosity."

As Wuerl mentioned the Pope, Brian Garfield, who was sitting in the middle of the church, stood and yelled "Shame on you!" and quickly walked out.

Well, they've figured out that some of the men can't be trusted. Now, once they figure out the institution can't be trusted, we'll make some real progress.

Former Vatican official says Pope knew about meeting with Kim Davis

The archbishop who accused Pope Francis of mishandling sexual misconduct allegations against a top American archbishop unveiled a new charge on Saturday: that Vatican officials -- and perhaps the Pope himself -- have told untruths about the pontiff's controversial meeting in 2015 with Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who refused to sign same-sex marriage certificates.

In a letter published Saturday on LifeSiteNews.com, a conservative Catholic website, Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, the former Vatican ambassador to the United States, said that several high-ranking church officials, including the Pope, knew in advance of the meeting and the controversy that could ensue if it became public.

When both sides have built careers on lying, who do you believe? At a minimum, grab some popcorn.
