Divorce Referendum – Children – and the Irish Bishops.

Where are the saints and scholars?First abortion, now family-smashing. Given that more than four-fifths of the Irish voters have demanded a further amendment to the Constitution to make divorce even easier, it is self-evident that the Church has had far too little influence on the debate. Where are the saints and scholars? In the Irish Times’ front-page story on the result of the divorce referendum, not a single Bishop was quoted as having said anything about the result of the … Read More

The Inconvenient Truth Of RSE

As a wife and mother of 2 young boys, a secondary school teacher on career break, a stay-at-home mum at present and recently, a very concerned parent when it comes to my children’s education, I started a journey all parents should go on right now in Ireland. My child’s Junior Infants’ lesson in my local Catholic primary school, on a paedophile childminder, was the start of a series of questions that have opened my eyes and a Pandora’s box. Do … Read More

Calling Evil Good – Holles Street Hospital

Ireland’s National Maternity Hospital is in the news for all of the wrong reasons. The details that have emerged so far, say that a baby was aborted because a preliminary test showed up the possibility of Trisomy 18. The baby was aborted, and then subsequent test results showed no evidence of Trisomy 18. I was born in Holles Street Hospital. My youngest daughter was also born there because of a complicated pregnancy. My wife was in Holles Street for nine … Read More

The New War on our Children

The new war on children in Ireland is mainly a propaganda war, but it will leave as many child victims in its wake as military warfare does. The casualties will be many unless parents stand up to the LGBT bullies who seek to promote their disordered lifestyle by corrupting the minds of young children. In a way I feel sorry for those who adhere to the LGBT lifestyle. They are being manipulated and used by higher powers in order to … Read More

Primary Teacher’s Group, Corrupting Irish Children!

The Irish National Teacher’s Organisation (INTO), which boasts that it is, “the largest teachers’ union in Ireland”, is re-launching a competition into Irish primary schools this May 2019, which will corrupt the innocence of children by falsely teaching them that those who live in same-sex relationships are equal to sacramentally married couples . The competition offers a prize of an iPad for the winning class. The theme of the competition is, ‘Different Families, Same Love’. Like much of the evil … Read More

The Culture of Death!

In his encyclical, ‘Evangelium Vitae’, Pope St John Paul II famously coined the phrase ‘culture of death’. It is important to re-read these things every now and then to keep them fresh in our minds. “In fact, while the climate of widespread moral uncertainty can in some way be explained by the multiplicity and gravity of today’s social problems, and these can sometimes mitigate the subjective responsibility of individuals, it is no less true that we are confronted by an … Read More

False Teaching on Human Sexuality is Child Abuse

During a hard hitting and sometimes shocking talk at The Lumen Fidei Institute’s Spring conference in Maynooth, John Smeaton, Director of the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children, pointed out that many senior Catholic officials are co-operating with, and actively promoting, child abuse, in the name of false, ideologically driven ‘Relationships & Sexuality Education’ programmes in schools. In his closing statement Mr Smeaton said: “Sex education is not the solution to systematic child abuse and exploitation. Indeed, what the … Read More

Advice to Catholic Parents on the Sex Education Bill

First question is: Do you know the material that is already being given to your children? Do you know the outside agencies who are delivering the material? Please find out what is already happening in your school. There are a lot of parents who are horrified when they see the content of classroom material (NOT THE HOMEWORK MATERIAL!) or hear AFTERWARDS about the topics discussed as part of RSE or SPHE. They are horrified to see the pictures and/or PowerPoint … Read More
