The Who and Cardinal Brady — 4 Comments

  1. There are plenty more radical things being said.

    I think Sean Brady is a good man, but has the task of defending the indefensible.

    When I heard his comment about not understanding the impact of abuse on victims on the news yesterday, I thought I had misheard what he had said, but the quote is actually on the Catholic bishops’ own website.

  2. If he was so ignorant of “full impact of abuse on the lives of children” why did he give assurances to Smyth’s victims that children would never be harmed again by Smyth?

    It’s a self-serving statement – nothing more. Indeed it’s an insult. We know Smyth continued his rapacious reign and that Brady’s investigation was never about protecting children.

  3. Good post. Good angle.
    Every time I think about it, the man sinks lower in my estimation. Hard to escape the conclusion that the organisation is institutionally abusive.
