“Trócaire’s Lenten campaign for 2007 focuses on equal rights for women and men around the world. By helping to promote gender equality we can improve the lives of many.”
The Catholic church now cares about gender equality? Irony implies humour so this on the irony scale is closer to gut churning hypocracy. I could make a list of attempted other humourous "new found concern for" things, you know "King Herod's new found concern for creche facilities" "Pol Pot's new found concern for not having piles of skulls everywhere", but really with something like this what is the point?
