Ireland is in grave trouble

Ireland is in a disastrous situation. Tim Stanley says today in the Daily Telegraph that Irish President Michael Higgins suggested climate change played a role in the massacre by Boko Haram of 40 Nigerians attending Mass on June 5th last year. More than 126 people were injured.

Googling I found that President Higgins did indeed warn against “any attempt to scapegoat pastoral peoples who are among the foremost victims of the consequences of climate change” for it. He called for solidarity with “all those impacted not only by this horrible event, but in the struggle by the most vulnerable, on whom the consequences of climate change have been inflicted”.

In a statement on Facebook, Bishop Arogundade of Ondo described as “incorrect and far-fetched” the climate change references in President Higgins’s statement condemning the massacre.

At least England has a king, not Higgins with his peasant face that resembles a chamber pot, but King Charles III is also woke. He is equally distraught about climate change and reportedly found the idea of sending refugees to Rwanda "appalling".

Ireland is in very grave trouble but so is the West and so is Christendom, a place Pope Francis says no longer exists.
