Soviet era infiltrator of the Catholic Church, Archbishop Diarmuid Martin has had an interesting week.
I mean I don't want to go casting no aspoyshuns.
But the week was interesting.
The appointment of Bishop Eamon Walshe to a senior Church position within the area of Dublin represents the final defeat for Archie in his attempts to drive Eamon Walshe from office by labelling him a concealer of child abuse.
Poor old Archie.
He got so close.
So ve-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-y, so sovietty, close.
Why it only seems like yesterday that Arch had contrived to have every Bishop in Ireland summoned for a meeting with Pope Benedict.
And through his allies in the most anti Catholic newspaper in Europe, the Irish Independent, Archie had sought to create the illusion that the Pope backed Archie.
The Irish Independent even ran a picture article featuring commentary on the Pope shaking hands with each Bishop, but supposedly showing disdain for each one as he did so.
Hilariously the Irish Independent claimed that the photo of the Pope and Archie showed the Pope beaming with paternal fondness for his favourite son.
Only this was the only photo the Irish Independent actually didn't publish.
And it was Archie who flounced out of Rome early after Cardinal Sean Brady grew a pair and defied him in the presence of Benedict.
Afterwards Archie's media allies attempted to ruin Cardinal Brady the same way they sought to ruin Eamon Walshe.
It almost looked as though Archie had kept Cardinal Brady cowed up to that point with the threat of blackmail.
Suddenly there were inuendos about Cardinal Brady in every atheistic leftist pro Archie newspaper in Ireland.
But that's another story.
You lose Archie.
Now fudge off.
