Tom is one of your old "holy Mother Church is right all time die hards" he would love to brush all the abuses and corruption under the carpet, but it wont do, at least in Ireland today we have a variety of Christian Churches who dont push it down your throat, Church attendance as you will know is declining fast only 42 per cent now here and no vocations, let it carry on as it is its irelevant to Irish lives, to give you an eg a was at a young peoples seminar from a college of late and the topic came up of over 360 young people only 40 showed their heads at church and then only at births , marriages, and deaths, the rest or most of them said faith is a personal thing and they will look and find where they can feel spiritually at home, they told me the Roman Catholic Church in ireland at least , was obsessed with sex money, and keeping people down, and their parents and grandparents had been taken in by it, but they are not, its refreshing at times to be with young people and listen to them, but that would never do in Tom Fallons "holy Mother Ireland"
