“Sorry not Sorry.”
“Sorry not Sorry.”
In a weird mix of plaintiveness and disingenuousness, Archbishop Martin of Dublin is complaining now about all the bad new stories of the murdered 800 babies flushed into a septic tank in a Convent in the town of Tuam, County Galway and the National Maternity Hospital in Dublin to be run by the Holy Nuns who ran the concentration camps, the Magdalene Laundries, in Ireland, in which tens of thousands of women and children were enslaved, with many dying and dumped into mass pits at the back of the Convent Laundries, and how Irish people are so mean and cruel to his clerics. Archbishop Martin also complains that the stories are fake news, that Catholic Clerics, these Holy people are treated as insignificant or on the peripheral of Irish Society. What a shame, poor Archbishop Martin defending the indefensible, from his palace in Dublin, he lacks frankness, but when you lie for a living as he does, what on earth have facts or candour to do, Archbishop Martin excuses are rather disingenuous. We’re queasy too, at your disingenuous self-defence, Archbishop Martin.
It now appears that Archbishop Martin's comments on 'justified resentment among priests’, Archbishop Martin’s is crying and complaining like a spoilt child that his church has faced criticism recently in the wake of the Tuam babies scandal, as well as the controversy surrounding the ownership of the National Maternity Hospital. “That Catholic bashing has been going on for far too long, said Archbishop Martin who is now calling for a pushback, “The piling on has gotten ugly, according to Archbishop Martin. If we, the clergy, and the laity don't stand up for themselves, they will only whet the appetite of our enemies to seek more vengeance.” Archbishop Martin said that Catholics are “unfairly under attack as they live out their faith and their ministry generously and with dedication. Archbishop Martin continues, “there is a sense in Ireland today in which there is a culture of relentless reminding the Irish Catholic Church of the sins of its members and at times of painting every individual and every moment in the history of the Church with the same condemnation, he continued..
“I notice a certain justified resentment among priests and religious and committed Catholics at somehow being unfairly under attack as they live out their faith and their ministry generously and with dedication. “There is a sense in which they feel that it is time to stand up and respond. The response cannot, however, be to deny the mistakes and the wrongdoings of the past or get into unfruitful or polemical quarrel. “Evil is conquered by goodness; nastiness by love; dishonesty by truth, corruption by integrity. The response of the Christian to criticism is reform and conversion; it is the call to renew the Church to be more effectively a witness to the God of love.”
This is more of Catholic Ethos and a sense of them closing ranks, as for the Survivors the nightmare of their horrendous childhood is forever ongoing, what with new revelations almost on a daily basis. What push back, what do you mean Archbishop Martin??, where was God’s love when Catholic Nuns flushed into a septic toilet 800 babies and another 1,500 of unnamed mothers and their babies dumped under the children’s playground in the same Convent in Tuam in Country Galway, a place I was privileged to visit recently with a group of outraged Irish people.. The same place I stood and gave a speech in front of a crowd of outraged ordinary Irish citizens who came to offer their support. Unwed mothers locked into religious convents as slaves forever, as their children were stolen and sold off for profits for the Irish Catholic Church, and the children not sold, locked up in the rape and torture rooms of Catholic Orphanages, and Industrial Schools in Ireland…Yes Archbishop Martin, have your pushback against the truth and the lies you preach from up high, but please remember their are still thousands of Survivors out there, I’m one of them, and we know the truth.
There are a class of people, the clerics, living amongst us today, who seem to be belong to the middle ages. Men and Women whose ambitions, they thought was so great, as to rise in the world, they shirk at nothing, they would forge testimony, torture women and children, commit perjury, connive, lie, practice deceit, even in the foulest form, here the greatest sin of all was committed on vulnerable women and their babies, falsely accuse them of unfounded shame. The clerics committed horrendous barbaric acts against the vulnerable women and their babies, because they could, under the protection of a false doctrine. The clerics committed gruesome murders, flogging and rapes and gave the outward appearance of truth to the world, they twisted truth, as they demeaned bewildered mothers and their children, who were betrayed, betrayed from the local Catholic Church altars in very city, town and village in Ireland, by both their families and the Catholic Church.
The lie began against unwed mothers and their babies by the manipulative Irish Catholic Church and shameful, cowardly Irish Government. There is nothing both the unscrupulous Irish Catholic Church and the disingenuous Irish Government could do now, to compensate or console the misery, the horrors of the Survivors, the pain they endured on a daily basis, it seemed impossible that anyone could endure such pain, but the unwed mothers and their children were subjected to a daily ritual of abuse and grief in the Mother and Baby Homes, Magdalene Laundries and Industrial Schools that ran up and down this green land of Ireland. So Archbishop Martin, how about the real truth, the secret graves and septic tanks concealing thousands of women and their babies, murdered, raped, flogged, now dumped in these very same, Catholic Convents, Mother and Baby Homes, Industrials Schools, and Magdalene Laundries in your name, the name of the Catholic Church in which you are a very proud member. Please I welcome the push back, bring it on…Irish People will no longer tolerate or believe your version of goodness or forgiveness, sprouting the word “Sorry” doesn’t cut it any longer, your days of barking out superstitious rubbish is finished, the game is up…justified resentment among the Irish People is only just starting.
Archbishop Martin- saying “Sorry” that 800 babies were found flushed into a septic tank, and again your also say “Sorry” about the tens of thousands of women and babies concealed in secret pits in the many Catholic Convents throughout Ireland, and another “Sorry” again, about the 60,000 babies stolen from their own mothers and illegally sold, how do you Archbishop Martin- say “Sorry” to the grieving women still alive today and without emotion or pity, the deliberately cruel and callous Nuns told the new mother’s at the time that their babies died at birth, but were in fact stolen and sold by the cold-blooded, pitiless Nuns..now these same stolen babies are coming back looking for their mothers, but these same adoptive babies were also told that their mothers had died at birth, worse till they learn they had brothers and sisters, they never knew or shared, also stolen and adopted…how relentlessly cruel….
Again Archbishop Martin- I hear you say..“Sorry” for the tens of thousands of other vulnerable children, flogged, raped, murdered, starved, in these same Catholic Convents, Mother and Baby Homes, Industrials Schools, and Magdalene Laundries in your name. It is a ferocious headache way to say “Sorry” do you Archbishop Martin mean "that “Sorry” absolves you and your Church from any sense of responsibility, is that the pushback you talk about, the Catholic Values “Sorry” or do you really mean but I don't care and am not sorry for saying it.” sorry not sorry, mistake not mistake. Here is a man, Archbishop Martin, then as a young priest, Diarmuid Martin in the late 1960s who I told about a sitting Archbishop of Dublin, Charles McQuaid, who raped me at the age of 15, and the other trainee priests and priests who used my hostel, the hostel for boys, in Dublin, owned by the Archbishop McQuaid in Dublin, and used as a rape room, and all I got from Diarmuid Martin, now Archbishop Martin was a sore ear after he slapped me for telling him about the many Priests, Bishops and Archbishops scouting for boys in the hostel for boys to rape.
That the Hostel had Pedophile problems and was in the grip of clerical Pedophiles which was epidemic, with the rich and powerful Catholic Church figures visiting and abusing vulnerable boys, most of the boys were between fifteen to eighteen years old, especially selected and released from Industrial Schools with impunity. I’m sorry, from Archbishop Martin won’t work, I don’t want a “Sorry” from you, nor your pushback. It was all organised, there were a lot of Pedophile Priests, they thought they ruled Ireland, they did, we would never speak out, because of shame and fear, that we, the victims couldn’t speak as loudly as the people in power. That’s the tragedy of attempting to reveal what is happening or what happened, those that tried to speak before me were squashed, by the Irish Catholic Church and their lives have been irreparably damaged, forever. I for one don't intent to be silent anymore. For the first eighteen years of my life I was surrounded by Pedophiles, sadly the number one problem in the Catholic Church was and is pedophilia, the church was built on their sins, Priests with parasitic interests will always see children, and especially vulnerable children as their prey.
