Paige expressing sentiments I agree whole-heartedly with and as ever, expressing them so much more eloquently than I ever could;
"Suffer Little Children

“Wrong, regrettable and contrary to the common good” says the Catholic Church.
Alas, they aren’t referring to the shameful attempt by the former Archbishop of Dublin to gag his successor but rather the fact that Brian Cowen was cutting VAT (and hence the price) of condoms.
I’m not sure what bizzare parallel univese that I live in. But in my world, the abuse of children by people who claim a pastoral mission is a despicable and evil crime. Covering up such crimes by someone who claims to care is revolting. In m twisted world, there is nothing about making condoms more affordable that I can find wrong and objectionable. If it eliminates one unnecessary STI (mind you, I’m not sure if there is ever a credible case for using the phrase necessary STI!) or stops two drug-addled teenagers bring a young babe into the world, I’m all for it.
Clearly I need a significant re-adjustment of reality.
And whilst I'm plagarising Paige (that has a ring to it actually!) may I add my delight to the fact that the great Omani has put his head over the parapet once more. Welcome back Omani, babysteps!
