I haven't heard the speech, but this charismatic priest allegedly said that God punishes certain sins by giving them autistic children, and compared autistic children to animals.
The invitation to him to Ireland appears to be withdrawn.
I think you can google for more info.

My mother had gone to one of his retreats, and liked it. He didn't say anything controversial then.

There is social media outrage against him.

Comment.

Social media outrage is outrage!

I don't trust social media lynchings.

however it could be justified if he really did compare autistic children to animals

I will not give click pennies to this story.

Basic Christian doctrine says that we love our neighbors as ourselves, live peaceably with all men and that people have innate dignity.

Can you explain what "click pennies" mean, please?

I think I've laid out the story. There is a counter-petition now: https://www.change.org/p/embassy-of-ire ... rom-kerala

Archbishop Diarmud (?) Martin said that the invite to him should be withdrawn.
