    That people still see this scummy brigade as some sort of moral guide......weak minded fools the lot of them.
    Exactly. The Church and its Orders and various "subsidiaries" are continuing to act as far from what they are supposed to be teaching and practicing (Christianity, charity, love, empathy etc etc), basically, the Word and Will of God, as they could possibly be. All that bolloxology from the apologists on threads such as the national maternity hospital thread has a light shone on it by this action of the CB's.

    The state needs to CPO Church owned schools in lieu of the redress.

    If you think the Catholic Church has lost it's ability to influence power, then you're blind.

    Look at the date on that report !
    This can only occur when influence exists.
    This is all another example of how the Church and its various orders and sects have no charitable purpose at their core and such designation by the Revenue Commissioners should be revoked.

    Unspecified amounts of money from the sale would go towards sustaining the ageing Brothers community and legal costs.
    So - this Isn't just about the redress scheme then .....

    Care to answer the questions?

    1) are they the Brothers' assets or are they the Trust's assets?

    2) Are these the only assets that could be sold or realised? Because this looks like a stunt to garner sympathy .....
