No Embassy in the Vatican – Close it

There should be no Irish Embassy in the Vatican. It is a farce. The Vatican pretends to be sovereign when in fact it is a religion. The physical space is the residue of the Holy Roman Empire.

After Magee, Cloyne and the Murphy Report, it is inappropriate to have diplomatic relations with those people. Can you imagine how devastating this is to the vast majority of uninvolved clergy and to the believers (the faithful).

I am glad my mother will never find out about this – she is long dead but was in the Third Order of St Francis. Since the age of about 15, I have not been very impressed or convinced top say the least. The Catholic Church is an interesting institution to study. It is a complex mixture of righteousness, self delusion, politics, goodness and badness mixed up in a rich tapestry.
