I am a practicing Catholic, and I humble submit that Cardinal Keith O'Brien is way, way out of his legitimate field of competence.

If he feels compassion for a terrorist, them pray for him. Pray for him publicly if you feel strongly. But to chastise the victims and their representative who are only seek secular justice is way, way over the top, and not legitimately within His Eminence’s purview! Those who are more qualified than I, please correct me if I am missing something here

Cardinal O’Brien is out of his mind. He is not preaching compassion, he is preaching injustice and disrespect of human life. Murderers, especially mass murderers, must be put to death or innocent life loses worth.
Without justice, mercy is meaningless.
“May God have mercy” is an appropriate speech, but “Release the mass murderer” is just plain nuts.
Justice is not vengeance - it is the order of good civilization.
