We are informed that the parents of a child who was sexually abused by a Catholic priest in Londonderry accepted a hand-written apology from the abuser. and did not go to the police because ‘That was the culture at that time’!
This strange and twisted language refers to the refusal of ‘Republican sympathisers’ to deal with the Royal Ulster Constabulary because of the fact that the I.R.A. would treat anybody on their ‘turf’ as a ‘tout’ if they contacted the RUC in any way, shape or form.
It is therefore extremely strange that many stories now emerging from the murky gloom of Sinn Fein/IRA history talk of the strong suspicions regarding the sexual and deviant behaviour of both the father and the brother of Gerry Adams.
From an organisation which prided itself on its ‘high moral standards’ as regards knee-capping for drug dealing, and punishment beatings for what in any other civilized area of the Kingdom would be handled by the police, there seems to be a certain lack of clarity in both the attitude as well as the responses of this highly moral political death machine!
