Irish people asked to petition for Primate Sean Brady’s resignation
Petition claims that Cardinal had let the people down and failed to lead
Hillen continued, “In signing this petition, many people here in Donegal – ironically, where Green, another convicted pedophile priest abused more than 26 children – are showing just how deeply disturbed they are by the corroborated evidence that has emerged about the Cardinal’s behavior and the anguish these children went through. Smyth ended up abusing more than 100 children in Ireland, the US and elsewhere. Cardinal Brady vowed three years ago to resign if any action by him contributed to the sexual abuse of children. He should follow through on that promise. While the Church, as we have learned recently, may have silenced certain priests from speaking out, it should not be allowed to silence the voice of the ordinary people of Donegal and Ireland upon whose very support it exists.”
"We cannot stand by and just be dictated to, whether that is by a priest or a bishop," said Joanna Quigley, who signed the petition. "People must stand up and speak out and this petition is one way to do that. We must take it upon ourselves to protect our children. It is our duty. After what the Cardinal allowed to happen to those poor kids - including 14-year-old Brendan Boland - who were so badly abused. Not doing anything to stop the sexual abuse is utterly unacceptable. He must resign."
