This is the censored Martyn Turner cartoon of the priests & child protection.

If you like what you see why not leave a comment?

I’m open to correction but it seems in 2014 the Irish Times have bowed to pressure from the pulpit and withdrawn the above Martyn Turner cartoon over religious sensitivities.
I’m a cartoonist and I utterly oppose the censoring of legitimate social commentary. The Irish Times ought to be ashamed of themselves if they’ve bowed to, or acted in anticipation of, the ire of priests. If this is the case it is the latest example of the cooling of public commentary brought about by RTE’s financial kowtowing to offended religious types over Pantigate.

We can’t stand for it.
