1 June 2015

A man who was abused at Kincora children's home in Belfast is demanding that what happened there decades ago should be included in the UK-wide inquiry set up by the government.

Former Catholic Priest, Matthew Fox: “I think all of Christianity can get back more to the teachings of Jesus, a revolutionary around love and justice. That's what it's about. And that's why there's been such fierce resistance all along from the right wing. The CIA has been involved in, especially with Pope John Paul II, the decimation of liberation theology all over South America, the replacing of these heroic leaders, including bishops and cardinals, with Opus Dei cardinals and bishops, who are — well, frankly, it's a fascist organization, Opus Dei is. It's all about obedience. It's not about ideas or theology. They haven't produced one theologian in 40 years. They produce canon lawyers and people who infiltrate where the power is, whether it's the media, the Supreme Court or the FBI, the CIA, and finance, especially in Europe.
