Open Season on Confession

As Hilary's left-hand-column has reminded us these last few weeks, the Irish episcopate has not been much interested in protesting Nosey Parker Kenny's intrusion into the confessional.

But at least one atheist recognizes a tyrannical intrusion when he sees one.

It becomes clearer every day that the leaders of the 1916 rising needn't have bothered. Their successors have already sold Ireland's independence to Brussels and now they wish to strangle the Church's sacraments. Did Lord Craigavon ever try that one?
