A young boy walks past a statue of the Virgin Mary, which stands on the windowsill of a classroom in the Glens Of Antrim, County Antrim, in this photo taken June 3, 2010. The reverence with which the Irish hold the Catholic Church had begun to fade even before the abuse scandals of recent years. As the economy boomed in the 1990s and 2000s, churches emptied. The abuse revelations have further undermined the Church's authority and fractured trust, alienating committed believers as senior clergy have remained in their posts. Parents, politicians, and even church leaders have begun to call for a rollback of clerical power. Why should our children have to follow a creed just to get an education, many ask. Picture taken June 3, 2010. To match Special Report IRELAND-CHURCH/ REUTERS/Cathal McNaughton (NORTHERN IRELAND - Tags: EDUCATION SOCIETY RELIGION)
