Re: Missing out on oppurtunity to protect children.

The Catholic church will pay either by correct reformations and justice or through loss of followers. People have now started to lay skeptical eyes on the church. I've never seen so much vitriol in the Irish media against the church. With secular movement gaining some ground and the church losing s...

Re: Nuclear Power

Nuclear power, the future for Ireland? We already use nuclear power in Ireland and will be using more in the near future. Ireland has high voltage interconnects with Britain through which we can sell or buy power. And the power we buy? Produced by the nuclear power plants on the west coast of Brita...

I was surprised at that, and quite happy. Maybe CNN isn't the total crapfest many people think it has become.

Re: Cardinal Pell tipped to tackle Church's sexual abuse scandal

Wow. Is there anyone running the Church who was't born before the end of World War II?

Muslims Threaten To Kill South Park Creators

Homophobic Christian pseudoscience

The Irish Times has an interesting (and worrying) piece on the arrival of Christian based "gay treatment therapy" in Northern Ireland.
