Dublin archbp. warns of 'strong forces' in church working against truth

In an article titled Martin warns again of strong forces but 'it's not the Vatican', The Catholic Herald of London reports that Dublin Archbishop Diarmuid Martin "reiterated his warning of 'strong forces' in the Catholic church which do not want the truth about clerical sex abuse to come out -- but failed to identify them."

Martin did reject newspaper reports that his comments of last week were "a criticism of Pope Benedict."
