I doubt if the psychopath Brendan Smyth went to the confessional. Sean (Cardinal) Brady  (as papal notulist when Brendan Boland was interviewed in 1975) did nothing. For Smyth it was business as usual right up to 1990s' AFAIK.

For record, Sean Brady was centre stage last Sunday in the Phoenix Part, Dublino with il Papa and he received communion. No good deed goes unpunished.

Thank you for showing us that Australia also has ultra right-wing nut cases elected to office. The US isn’t alone...

Adam Goddes does the haka (and not as entertainment as the commentators seem to claim, turkeys).
You can only take so much racial abuse I suppose.

There was a program on BBC2 about Adam Goddes. It felt like 50s apartheid for me.

Imagine this happening on BBC's Match of the Day.

He's Australian, I've checked that his mother is Indigenous Australian from the Stolen Generation. He's doing the Aboriginal war dance (!= haka, afaik). Why such a fuss?

Because you are taking it on face value and incomplete information.
It is not 'what' but 'why'.
