Time for Diarmuid Martin to preach Church's faith or leave
Up until this point the Archbhishop of Dublin, Diarmuid Martin has talked about 'relationships of dependency' and non-maritial types of intimacy. He has failed to publicly support the Catholic Church's teaching on the immorality of homosexual acts or explain why the Church is opposed to the legalisation of gay civil unions. This is at best a dereliction of duty and at worst a scandal.
Given his refusal to do so over the last four years, I propose it is time to pray that Pope Benedict XVI will promote Diarmuid to a position of absolutely no consequence in the Vatican where he can do less damage than he is doing in Ireland at present.
