HERE ARE PARTS 2 AND 3 OF THE EVIDENCE NICHOLS GAVE TO THE INQUIRY ABOUT THE TIME WHEN HE WAS ARCHBISHOP OF BIRMINGHAM.
I realise it is two hours of watching.
But its worth it,
Up to now geezers like Nichols have not been held accountable by the civil authorities.
Now they are!
And they do not like it one bit.
The church will not police itself properly. So therefore the state has to step in.
The children these priests and religious sexually abused are also citizens in their countries and their governments are obliged to protect them from all abusers – even priest abusers.
These governments also need to keep the hierarchy under surveillance to make sure that they do not hide abusers and over up for them.
How glad I am to have lived to see the day when these geezers are brought before civil tribunals to be challenged.
When Cahal Daly sacked me I brought him before the Belfast High Court.
I did not win but I made Daly sit as a defendant for 5 days.
When the case was over, and everyone heard how the church works a man approached Daly and said to him in front of the whole court:
“Mister Daly, I’m a Protestant and after listening to this case all week I’m very grateful for the Reformers”.
Daly flushed red and rushed away.
