Irish bishop is first to quit over child sex abuse scandal – Europe, World – The Independent

The heads are finally starting to roll in the Irish church..

An Irish bishop flew to Rome yesterday to hand in his resignation after days of angry and intense pressure over his handling of cases of child sexual abuse within the Catholic Church.

Donal Murray, Bishop of Limerick, gave every sign of acting with great reluctance, after spending some days apparently playing for time in the hope of keeping his post. But the wave of shock and horror which followed publication of a damning report, which revealed a systematic high-level church cover-up of the abuse of children by priests, is in effect sweeping him from office.

Murray used to be a professor of moral philosophy who lectured extensively on ethics.. But that was clearly well before became a Catholic Bishop.

I don’t know much about moral philosophy but I know a cunt when i see one.
