Bríd Smith TD speaks in the Dáil on mother and baby homes scandal: separate Church and State
IT’S NOT WHAT WE SAY – IT’S WHAT WE DO THAT COUNTS.
There were many fine speeches in the Dáil this evening in response to the SF motion on mother and babies homes. But talk is cheap – we need to DO something. Brid proposed an amendment that we SEPARATE CHURCH AND STATE. That would mean taking the wealth off Bon Secours – taking our hospitals into State control; getting rid of the religeous off the boards of management of our schools; and recind the deal done by former FF Minister Woods with the religious, which hugely favoured them, over clerical child sex abuse.
