    Another Charity Scandal: Investigation into Financial Irregularities at Gay Rights Charity GLEN

    Ireland's charity sector has been the subject of a deluge of controversies and scandals since 2013, ranging from revelations about exorbitant executive pay and "top-ups" to suspected fraud.

    Now the Gay rights charity GLEN (Gay & Lesbian Equality Network) is being investigated by the Charities Regulator over financial irregularities related to "credit cards, political campaigns and undisclosed spending" according to the front page of tomorrow's Sunday Business Post. The headline claims that the charity's future is in doubt and that the new Chief Executive resigned after making a disclosure to the regulator.

    It's time for the state to stop all charity funding of pressure/advocate groups, most of it provides little value and takes much needed funds from service providers.

    How often do charities need to provide their paperwork for inspection?

    It's hard to avoid the sense that the "liberal elite" only wanted to take the Catholic Church's place in hindsight. They're trying to to make us feel guilty, trying to exploit the country as springboard for their broader ambitions, accepting money from Americans, trying to impose their own moral views on the rest of the country, corruption, excessive intimacy with the levers of power...
