Apparently we're doing this now so I'd like to apologise for, speak out against, and publicly disavow these fellow White British people.

I don't think it is your place to apologise, but if you insist then wouldn't it be better to apologise and disavow everybody from all organised religions?

Re: I apologise [White English Scum]

I apologise because 20 odd years ago I helped a Mr. F West re-lay his patio. He paid cash in hand but I was on the dole at the time.

Handing out bibles and leaflets?

OK, handing out bibles is definitely a crime; therefore I apologise on their behalf.

Re: I apologise [White English Scum]

The great majority of Irish people have been very good at saying 'not in my name' for atrocities perpetrated by both sides, actually.

Could have been worse, I suppose. They could have burst in with guns and started shooting indiscriminately.

Re: I apologise [White English Scum]

I certainly do expect the Catholic Church to apologize for the systematic abuse of children in their care, in childrens' homes and for the 800 dead babies found in a grave at a 'fallen mother facility' in County Galway Ireland.

Did they all die naturally, were they killed, both? They were denied babptism and a Christian burial by the nuns, and all thrown into a sceptic tank. If I was a Catholic, I'd want to apologize, and say 'Not in my name'. I'd want to say that this is not what my religion is about and that this is an abomination.

The grim findings, which are being investigated by police, provide a glimpse into a particularly dark time for unmarried pregnant women in Ireland, where societal and religious mores stigmatized them. Without means to support themselves, women by the hundreds wound up at the Home. “When daughters became pregnant, they were ostracized completely,” Corless said. “Families would be afraid of neighbors finding out, because to get pregnant out of marriage was the worst thing on Earth. It was the worst crime a woman could commit, even though a lot of the time it had been because of a rape.”
According to documents Corless provided the Irish Mail on Sunday, malnutrition and neglect killed many of the children, while others died of measles, convulsions, TB, gastroenteritis and pneumonia. Infant mortality at the Home was staggeringly high.
“If you look at the records, babies were dying two a week, but I’m still trying to figure out how they could [put the bodies in a septic tank],” Corless said. “Couldn’t they have afforded baby coffins?”
Special kinds of neglect and abuse were reserved for the Home Babies, as locals call them. Many in surrounding communities remember them. They remember how they were segregated to the fringes of classrooms, and how the local nuns accentuated the differences between them and the others. They remember how, as one local told the Irish Central, they were “usually gone by school age — either adopted or dead.”
According to Irish Central, a 1944 local health board report described the children living at the Home as “emaciated,” “pot-bellied,” “fragile” and with “flesh hanging loosely on limbs.”

But, more pertinently, do you expect Roman Catholics in Argentina, Angola and the Philippines to apologise for these things?
