← Let's get it straight: Irish child abuse was perpetrated by the trendy, modern post-Vatican II Catholic Church

So his logic is:
1 - the commission looked at reports starting 3 years after McQaids death, from 1975 onwards
2 - there were only a few McQuaid-supervised incidents in these records
3 - there are many more reports about cases from 1975 onwards
4 = there was little abuse under McQuaid.

Surely he must recognize that this is crap. Looking at these records says nothing about McQuaid at all. Maybe if they'd find records from the 50s and 60s ... or just look at them...
