On The Home’s Children and the Catholic Church

What institutions require is oversight. Self awareness. A lot of institutions run across the globe have stellar care. I can put up my own “Spastic Society” work as an example of care within disability (where a lot of the emphasis is inter disabled care and promotion of ability in a society where there are few …

A Second Letter – Dear Cardinal O’Brien

Dear Cardinal O’Brien My first letter was extremely harsh. Well to be fair you deserved that harshness. You were utilising a position of power to denigrate and deny the basic right of happiness to a group of people based on prejudices created by a 2000 year old book. There are Gay Priests.
