Being a priest is a dangerous job these days.

There is something wrong with our society when a priest, walking the streets of his parish wearing his collar, gets mugged for £4.65. Pray for Fr Kieran Mullarkey and for the yobs who attacked him.

Blimee, I was going to write a post on the persecution recently. But I thought it got too complicated and I'm not really up for the challenge. But it goes something like this. The Devil has encouraged the majority (society) to be anti-religious, and because Catholicism is the Truth, it's particularly anti-Catholic.

No doubt their do-gooding lawyers will plead they are from deprived backgrounds, first offence, very poor, never done the like before, etc etc. The fact that he was a priest is irrelevant for the most part - but the lack of respect shown by some sections of our population make you wonder whether they have respect for anyone, as Fr Mullarkey indicates.

This is Blair's Britain and, regretablly, I don't think we should be surprised. If they are caught for this and even more heinous crimes, the justice system in Britain favours the perpetator not the victim. Very sad.

Yes I'm sure in this case the PM would want the police and courts to be tough - only for Mrs B and Matrix Chambers to act vigorously for the defence.

The damage was done years ago by Roy Jenkins, a man with a wonky moral compass.
