"All senior officials in state bodies which are likely to have to deal with the Catholic Church should be screened to ensure that they will not show inappropriate deference to the Catholic Church. Those who feel they are 'Catholic first and Irish second' should seek promotion in other organs of the State." Irish Independent
The Labour party in Ireland are starting to really alarm me. Some of its members want to discrimate against Catholics. Can you believe it? Yes, I can. But they are actually saying it out loud!
It is unsettling to live in a country when you sense this tide of secular aggression breathing down your neck. It is worrying when people start to think that Catholics are bad and need to be watched. It is alarming when our public representatives start expressing these discriminatory, hate filled sentiments out loud, and it begins to get a little bit frightening when "good" people support them.
So if you are a real Catholic working for the Irish State it is time to watch your back.
