And please don`t start telling me that there is peace in Northern Ireland !!!!!
What would you call it then?
I admit it is fragile but after so many years of hatred and deaths in NI, at least the majority has stopped,plus no bombs going off on the British mainland.
Do not know too much about this subject to be honest, but were Adams and Mcguiness not IRA terrorists?
They were from the political wing of the IRA so I presume they were involved at some point in the NI atrocities.
The British Government had to deal with them in the end for the NI peace process to go ahead.The British Government had to sit around a table with them. Does it make a difference whether it is a priest or anyone else, or is this really a knock a Catholic thread.
I am more concerned that killers like the ones on Saturday, 15 August 1998 at Omagh, killing 29 people.
Nobody was ever convicted of that....Seamus McKenna, Michael McKevitt, Liam Campbell, Colm Murphy and Seamus Daly were only sued...justice eh?
As far as I can make out Father James Chesney's alleged wrongdoings are just that....alleged. Some of the RUC members at the time are now dead, so they cannot give evidence.
A investigation into this priest and a possible conviction, and I use the word possible here,would only ignite NI into another furnace of trouble.
Can you imagine what the Catholics would say if this Priest was convicted, but more importantly what some of the Catholics would do. This may or may not be right, but would pursuing this really leave NI in a better position? Somehow I think the already fragile peace there would not be like that for long, and who really wants to see it all start up again?
Sometimes just like all the killers who have been released from the Maize prison early under the Good Friday agreement, you have to look at the much wider picture in all this.
