me & my shadow
By Diogenes ( articles ) | Mar 02, 2009
In the course of a hosted dinner-discussion on privacy issues and their implications, Archbishop Diarmuid Martin makes an interesting admission (at about 12:45 minutes into this video). He's responding to the question -- obviously put to him in jest -- "You told us that you had two identities ...?"
The Archbishop of Dublin: Somebody says that their daughter uses a false name. I have a name that I use all the time. If somebody stops me on the street and asks me to sign something, probably it's easier rather than say no and get into a debate, I sign the particular name.
The wily Martin declined to disclose his second identity, but I have a suspicion that he signs himself as "Sean O'Malley." Easier than saying no.
