Woman to be arrested over allegations from ultra-conservative religious group

Quote:
Gardaí are to arrest a Cork activist next week on charges of “inciting hatred” against a Christian fundamentalist group operating in the county.

The group, which is part of a loose worldwide network called the Society of Saint Pius X Resistance (SSPX Resistance), was founded by an ex-Catholic bishop who recently gave a sermon in Cork linking Jewish people to the start of Covid-19 and calling them “master servants of the devil”.

SSPX Resistance has made a complaint to gardaí alleging incitement to hatred, harassment and trespass by Cork resident and campaigner Fiona O’Leary, who lives close to the church.

Ms O’Leary has written about the group on her blog and visited its compound to take pictures and question its leaders. She also photographed and published pictures of two of its priests after spotting them in the supermarket.

Incitement to hatred is a rarely prosecuted offence which makes it a crime to publish material “likely to stir up hatred” against a group or individual.

Last week, Ms O’Leary was informed by gardaí in west Cork that she is to be arrested by appointment next Tuesday for the purposes of interview in relation to the allegations. She was told she will be arrested in public if she does not attend the Garda station by arrangement.

The Drimoleague woman has a long history of campaigning on various topics through her blog and social media channels. She has previously clashed with Scientology, far-right movements and promoters of fake autism cures.

Mr Williamson was once a bishop in the Catholic Church before being excommunicated in the late 1980s. He was later readmitted to the church before being excommunicated again in 2009 after his conviction in a German court of Holocaust denial.

I am not familiar with Irish law but she is the one being arrested for incitement? :roll:

Ireland clearly gives the Catholic Church special treatment.

Um...how much of the stuff on American TV has been banned? It seems like a lot of it qualifies... :?

So...they invoke an Irish law against "hate crimes" to arrest a whistleblower who exposes hate...for...committing a hate crime?

Thats rich! :roll:

Yes...libeling the RCC in the Republic of Ireland is about like libeling Shiite Islam in Iran.
