Irish Daily Mirror comment: Shame they all suffered.

THE Catholic Church has a lot to answer for the way it dealt with clerical sex abuse.

For too long it covered up for sick and depraved monsters who were more devils than men of God.

Paedophile priests held positions of trust in communities yet abused it in the vilest of ways.

Is it any wonder that it is shocked by a new report into the impact of the pervert clerics.

A staggering nine out of 10 people believe it has been damaged by the scandal.

How sad now that only four in 10 parents would trust their little ones into the care of priests.

Ordinary decent priests feel ashamed by the terrible actions of their colleagues.

They even had to use disguises to hide their vocation for fear of being picked on.

There are a lot of good men in the priesthood who have given their lives to God and the people.

So it is good to see that 72 per cent of Irish people believed priests in general were unfairly judged because of the scandals.

It's time now for Church authorities to root out the perverts once and for all.

With the rotten apples gone, decent honest priests can hold their heads high again.
