Irish priest apologizes for linking Kenny's speech to Hitler's
Catholic World News - July 28, 2011
An Irish Catholic priest has been forced to apologize for a newsletter in which he compared an anti-Vatican speech by prime minister (Taoiseach) Enda Kenny to a speech by Adolf Hitler.
In a short essay lamenting the Taoiseach's speech, Father Thomas Daly had told his parishioners in Drogheda: "The last European leader to make such a blistering attack on the Pope was the ruthless German dictator Adolf Hitler." That sentence touched of howls of protest, and Father Daly apologized for "the headline and for the misunderstandings that might have arisen out of it."
"I am not comparing Enda Kenny to Hitler," the priest said.
