Pope Benedict not welcome here

The Pope is not welcome to these islands given the disgraceful behaviour of the Vatican and his clergy over the systematic sexual violations of our defenceless children.

In recent times, the Pope has refused to accept the resignations of two bishops who were involved in the cover-up and were named in the Ryan report.

The Pope's pastoral letter to the Irish faithful was hollow in substance and lacked all credibility.

Until such time as the pontiff addresses these questions, he should hang his head in shame.
