Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Dear Sir,

Pope John Paul II's visit to Ireland in 1979 initiated a conservative counter revolution in Ireland and led to the Eighth Amendment banning abortion in 1983.

This time around, the Irish church and state stood united in condemning clerical child sex abuse and other abuses of women and children, and demanding more effective action from the Vatican to bring perpetrators and those who cover up for them to justice.

Could it be that Pope Francis' visit will have more of an impact on him and on the Vatican that it has on Ireland?

Dear Sir,

Why should anyone take any of these monsters seriously?  The gall.

Dear Humans with IQs Above Room Temperature,
