Vatican should be silent on gay marriage

Cardinal Pietro Parolin described the Irish people's vote in favour of gay marriage as a "defeat for mankind" on Tuesday. The Vatican would do better to focus on the cases of child abuse committed by Catholic priests in Ireland between 1930 and 1990, journalist Przemysław Prekiel comments on the liberal blog portal naTemat, adding that the Church has lost any right to moralising criticism: "These are indeed brash words coming from the mouth of a representative of an institution that is partially responsible for the suffering of thousands of children who fell victim to abuse by priests. The Emerald Isle is still under shock from the abuse scandals in which the Church played an evil role. This was a real drama for thousands of people who were repudiated by the Church and whom it refused to help. … It's just a pity that the mass graves of the children who lie buried next to the Catholic institution don't provoke such indignation."
