I wonder how many actually walked out? Has Ireland really become that liberal?
Irish mass goers walk out over priest’s anti-Semitic comments
Describes Justice Minister Alan Shatter as atheist
By CATHY HAYES,IrishCentral.com Staff Writer
Kilkenny massgoers walked out of a church service last week after the priest described the Minister of Justice as 'Jewish and non practicing' during the sermon...
Saying someone is "Jewish and nonpracticing" is not "antisemitic".
Given the context, either the priest knew how such language would be seen as divisive (and thus shame on him), or he was ignorant of how such language would be seen as divisive (another shame, though perhaps less potent).
