Really, we cannot imagine why the Government have been such

consistent respecters of persons that they have allowed learned Roman Catholic theologians who juggle with history, tradition,and doctrine in order to evolves condonation of murder, to go about their business immune from prosecution. Why have not Members of Parliament forced action upon the Government ? Do they all mean to join in this tragic joke of putting the blares on the printer ? It seems to us preposterous, and most dirs. creditable to the Government, that it should be left to a new::: paper to extort from the leaders of theological thought in Dublin a confession that the Maynooth editors went too far in allowinh a defence of murder to be published.
