Wedding invite wounds abused

Cardinal Sean Brady, the Irish Primate, has been officially invited to attend the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton as an honoured guest.

He was one of three priests who failed to report incidents of child sex abuse by Fr Brendan Smyth to the civil authorities. Smyth went on to assault and harm many more children.

The invitation to this cleric wounds survivors and sends a clear message that his behaviour is acceptable to the monarchy and the establishment.
