OH ME! OH MY! IS THIS SCRUPULOSITY, OVER REACTION OR SOUND JUDGEMENT?
This strikes me as a legal ploy and is simply stupid. Or are children actually being protected by this measure?
Stop the planet and let me off please!
Each diocese in Ireland has been directed to have specific guidelines governing the photography of children
Parents have been banned from taking photos of their children at Communion and Confirmation ceremonies.
The Irish Independent reports that each diocese in Ireland has been directed to have specific guidelines governing the photography of children while they are on church grounds.
According to the paper, the rules derive from the 'Safeguarding Standards' guidelines, introduced by the National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church in 2008, established in response to the clerical abuse scandals.
