Irish cabinet ministers rip Rhode Island bishop
June 03, 2019
CWN Editor's Note: Several ministers of the Irish government took the unusual step of criticizing an American prelate, after Bishop Thomas Tobin of Providence, Rhode island told Catholics that they should not join in Gay Pride events. Culture minister Josepha Madigan tweeted: “Not the God I know. Disgraceful.” Social protection minister Regina Doherty said the bishop’s remarks were “unchristian.” Justice minister Charlie Flanagan saw a “complete absence of tolerance, understanding, compassion.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
