Irish protesters reject pardon plea from Pope Francis

Pope Francis may have been begging forgiveness at a mass in Phoenix Park, but just four miles away the banners at a protest rally in the heart of Dublin rebuffed that request with short, sharp slogans.

“Hey Pope Francis you’re outta chances”, “The Pope is a dope”, “The Pope is protecting paedophiles”, “Religion is fine, rape is not”, “Repeal the church”, and, perhaps most cuttingly: “The church way worse than the Brits.”

The anger, pain and defiance expressed on Sunday made clear that the pontiff’s two-day visit to Ireland had not salved the wounds from clerical sexual abuse and cruelty in Magdalene laundries and other institutions, at least not for the several thousand people gathered at the Garden of Remembrance. 

“I don’t think he’s said enough, apologised enough,” said Fiona O’Driscoll, an educator who came with her husband and three children, aged three to 13. “I don’t want to scare them with stories … but things happened and they were awful. And for so long no one believed the victims.”

The pope’s requests for forgiveness in his Phoenix Park sermon, including for members of the church hierarchy who covered up “painful situations”, were far too little and too late for the crowd who had gathered at the garden dedicated to the memory of those who gave their lives for Irish freedom.
