Irish PM Describes Vatican as Dysfunctional, Disconnected, Narcissistic

In an unprecedented attack on the Catholic Church by a head of state, the Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny today called the Vatican an elitist, dysfunctional, disconnected, and narcissistic institution over the distractions and obfuscations that the Vatican has offered in attempting to explain away the church priest pedophile scandals

Kenny promised that the historic relationship between the Catholic Church and the Irish State "would never be the same."

"The rape and torture of children were downplayed or 'managed' to uphold instead the primacy of the institution, its power, standing and 'reputation'," the taoiseach (Prime Minister) said.
