Taoiseach to discuss abuse scandal with Pope Francis

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has said his first words to Pope Francis would be ones of welcome, but there are a number of issues ranging from human rights to child sex abuse that he also wants to talk about.

Mr Varadkar also said that any information requested by State authorities carrying out investigations into child abuse should be made available whether it is held in Ireland or in the Vatican.

"We want to make sure that there is truth and justice and healing for victims and that has to be part of it," he said.

Mr Varadkar said he would try to raise as many issues as possible during his brief meeting with Pope Francis at Dublin Castle on Saturday.


I wonder if he's got thoughts about the "homosexual subculture" excuse the church is throwing around?
