“The [Irish] State still accepts the right of the Church to have the majority input into our education system: how can it do otherwise, when the political and civil authorities are themselves products of the system, and have been indoctrinated from childhood into accepting the Church's view of itself as the unselfish, altruistic moral arbiter? We have been indoctrinated with a primeval anti-intellectualism by the system which prevents us asking fundamental questions about the logic and purpose of our belief systems.”
