Is This the Death of the Catholic Church in Ireland? | Daily News | NCRegister.com

At first glance I'd be tempted to believe that this question is 'over the top'; a bit of hyperbole that obscures more than illumines the question of the state of the Church in Ireland. Yet after reading the entire article, I'm not so sure that perhaps it is closer to the truth than I first suspected to be true. If it is the case that the Irish church is moribund, then it should stand as proof that the vivacity of the faith in any country cannot be taken for granted.

  1. It's not the death of the Catholic Church in Ireland but it is the nascence of many Catholics saying that Catholics have no right to impose their beliefs upon others. When Ireland voted in 1995 to allow divorce, it wasn't the end of the Catholic Church. Even when the sex scandal broke, it wasn't the end of the Catholic Church. The only thing that will reduce the Catholic Church to a small fraction of its former self is if the hierarchy refuse to listen to the Catholics. Just like in Quebec in the 60's people won't put up with that any more.
