While I have posted some items about dreadful pieces in the Fishwrap, to be fair there is a good piece by my friend the nearly-ubiquitous John L Allen, Jr. about the persecution of a priest falsely accused of abuse of children. HERE.
A priest, Fr. Kevin Reynolds, was falsely accused and the Irish press got out the knives. When it was demonstrated that the priest was innocent, the Irish press did not correct its stance.
It is a longish piece, but I urge you nonetheless to go read it. Allen makes excellent points about a serious problem.
Pray for the Church in Ireland and the Irish people.
