Irish Government Report into Catholic Church Leadership The Irish Government set up a Commission 9 years ago into the treatment of children in "institutions". While the terms of reference didn't specifically refer to the Catholic Church, most of those institutions were church-run. Following the May report of the Commission, the Irish Government ordered a further inquiry into how the Roman Catholic Church's leadership handled the allegations of child abuse about which it knew. [STRIKE]OMG! The Irish government is bigoted! And they blurred the line between church and state![/STRIKE] Thursday, the government inquiry's 720-page report into the Roman Catholic Church was published. Kevin Rudd and Malcolm Turnbull - take note. Submitted as fodder for poonage and for great justice.
