Fingerprints of anti-Catholic bigotry in programme

Following the meeting of the board of RTÉ with Communications Minister Pat Rabbitte on the libelling of Father Kevin Reynolds in the Mission to Prey programme, it has emerged that no resignations from the board were sought or offered.

Mr Rabbitte said the board fully appreciated the seriousness of the damage that had been caused, saying, “the systems failed”.

I don’t believe the systems failed, I believe they were casually and routinely ignored.

This despicable attack was grotesque, unprecedented, bizarre and unbelievable and has the fingerprints of anti-Catholic bigotry all over it.
