Colm debates Clerical Abuse in Ireland with US Catholic League
Well this was an interesting debate. Dr Bill Donohue of the Catholic League issued a statement in which he condemned “hysteria” over clerical sexual abuse in Ireland.
Matt Cooper at Today Fm’s Last Word asked me to come on the show and debate the issue with the good Dr Donohue. It was quite the discussion.
I never ceased to be amazed at just how blind some ‘commentators’ can be when faced with a truth which challenegs their view of the world. Dr Donohues simplistic analysis of the Ryan Report is shocking to say the least. I am always of the view that it is better to give space and time in such debates for the opposing view to undermine itself. In this case it didn’t take much time or effort on my part for that to happen.
Let me know what you think.
