McStay: Denial and stupidity

John McStay, liquidator and long time friend of Sean Fitzpatrick was asked how Fitzpatrick was dealing with the pressure (Marian Finucane Show – Sunday).

I think probably as well as any of us would. He’s a strong person, he’s had to be to develop the business he did but there’s enormous pressure.

At a human level I might condemn the sin but not the sinner.

This is the same hypocritically obnoxious stance taken by the Catholic Church on the question of homosexuality.

Fitzpatrick and his bank has destroyed the lives of countless thousands of Irish citizens and done enormous damage to the country and yet this fool thinks that he should not be condemned.

Apart from demonstrating an innate stupidity McStay’s attitude tells us just how deep in denial many Irish people are regarding corruption in Ireland.
