The unique story of an Australian rural community who, in the spirit of their Irish rebel ancestors, stood up for what they believed in.

"As a Catholic Australian, I’m not proud at all to be Catholic"

-Thanks Kristina Keneally for telling it how it is: "The Catholic church proved its utter irrelevance in the referendum result. The Catholic bishops told Irish voters that children had a right to a mother and a father. What about a child’s right not to be molested by an ordained father? What about a parent’s right to trust that a bishop won’t hide a paedophile priest in their parish? The Irish people, once so willing to heed to the clergy, decisively determined that Catholic bishops possess little credibility these days when it comes to knowing what’s in the best interests of children".
