    Default Cardinal O Brien resigns

    It has just been announced that Cardinal O Brien, an Irishman has resigned. He was UK's most senior curchman. A few priests made allegations against him. Will not now go to conclave. Astounding news.

    Noteworthy that O Brien recently spoke out on the evils of homosexuality.

    Yeah. Well that's England for you. People do wrong, and the resign.

    If it was here, he would still be in power.

    And I mean that regardless of whether it is Church, State, Charity, self regulating lobby group, or business.

    In the remit of the Irish authority concept, power is retained regardless. There is no shaming people out of power.
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    I think Brady offered to resign after the oath secrecy thing. But Rome refused- maybe they still regard Ireland as the jewel in the crown ?

    Surely, Sean Brady cannot go to the conclave with his record.

    Will the Irish cardinal who was involved in sweeping a scandal under the carpet in the mid 70s stay ?

    Of course he will. In Ireland, a tendency to sweep stuff under the carpet makes one very suitable for positions of high authority.

    So true. The Irish, entitled to everything, responsible for nothing.
