Apparently, the Vatican has refused to cooperate with the commission into child abuse. In other words, the Vatican, a sovereign state, has refused to cooperate with the investigation into a criminal conspiracy against children in this country.
Fair enough. Let’s make our anger heard. Expel the Papal Nuncio, and withdraw our ambassador from the Vatican. It’s only symbolic, I accept, but if we are willing to not have diplomatic relations with Taiwan, a free democracy, then we can certainly break off diplomatic relations with a state that, at its worst, actually shields pedophiles.
Contact your government TDs here and let them know your feelings. And remember, email your local TDs individually, and put your home address on the email. If they get a round robin they’ll ignore it. But they will pay it far more attention if they think it will affect your preference towards them personally at the next election.
