"I'm not convinced that Francis has done anything wrong."
It's not a case of him doing wrong Joe - rather, he is being accused of doing nothing other than offering lip service to an ongoing crime

There's a very peceptive cartoom in this morning's Times showing The Pope high on a elevated platform with a hammer and chisel carving a huge statue made up of teh words, "Grave scandal, Pain and Shame, Corruption Repellant Clerical abuse"
The plinth reads "WORDS"
Next to him is an empty entitles "ACTIONS" - totally empty!
Sums it all up perfectly really

Irish Minister, Katherine Zappone has presented The Pope with The Governments summation of the scandal and what needs to be done in reparation - if I were a betting man I'd be queuing at the betting shop to place my bet on that one

Throughout his visit thousands of protestors have been demanding to know the names of members of the church hierarchy who colluded to hide what was going on and allowed it to continue - their pleass have been greeted with total silence
Outrageously, past Governments agreed to share the financial burden of reparation with the church out of our taxes (outrageous enough)
This is made more outrageous by the fact that the church still owes 1.3 BILLION OF ITS AGREED PORTION
It really isn't helping its case for all its public rallies, which, it is reckoned, will have cost Ireland 20,000,000
Utter madness
