CHURCH HAS EMBARKED ON A CONCERTED EFFORT TO SILENCE ME ON SOCIAL MEDIA

censorship

OVER THE WEEKEND I DISCOVERED SOMETHING THAT I ALREADY SUSPECTED. THE IRISH RC CHURCH HAS EMBARKED ON A WELL FUNDED CAMPAIGN TO SILENCE ME ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND THE INTERNET.

I’m told that Diarmuid Martin does not approve of this action?

Amy and his Episcopal friends like Lugs Monahan of Killaloe feel differently.

The censoring of my blog began some time ago. This is what happened.

  1. Eamon Martin reported me to the Police Service of Northern Ireland for a comment (not written by me) that appeared on my blog. The police contacted me and asked me to attend at Larne Police Station for a formal, tape recorded interview. Of course I co-operated. The police told me that they would be in touch with me within 14 days to let me know the outcome. After ELEVEN MONTHS they wrote to me to say that there would be no further action.
  2. On six occasions, always on a Sunday morning – 10 minutes before my Sunday Mass began – an anonymous caller called the police to report that day’s blog. Generally the police apologised for troubling me. There was no further action.
  3. Various individual and collective entities have lodged dozens of complaints to Google Blogger about individual blogs. A number of blogs have been taken down.

4. Last week I had a notice from Blogger that my blog had been locked and that it may be permanently deleted i9n 89 days. I have appealed but have heard nothing. It is still down

5. I have several anonymous emails and comments to tell me that Catholic individuals and entities have already been in touch with WordPress to take this blog down.

6. I have had general threats against my personal safety and a number of death threats. All reported to the police.

7. At the weekend my Twitter account was locked after several complaints from Gorgeous – Deacon Michael Byrne.

There is a rumour circulating among the Dublin clergy that Gorgeous, who is living in a presbytery, will be ordained in 18 months time?

In any event, it seems that Gorgeous is trying to erase all mention of his various “travails” on social media – maybe with a view to ordination?

8. I have had solicitor’s letters from Paul Prior, Conor Gannon and Eamon Martin.

9. Over the weekend a senior and well known Irish cleric informed me by email that he had knowledge of a well funded plan within the Irish RC Church to silence me on all social media.

WHY?

The organised Irish media is afraid to carry all the scandals that are going on in the Irish RC church at all levels. They are afraid of the power, influence and money of the RC crowd.

This blog has been one of the few, if not the only place that these matters can be aired in public, commented on, debated and condemned.

We have only heard a small percentage of what is really going on among the clergy and priests.

They do not want me to tell the whole story and for you to read it and know about it.

In more crude times they would have prepared a fatal accident for me. Some of them are still capable of doing that – or of getting or paying someone to do it for them.

In the meantime they are concentrating on attacking the blog and my social media accounts.

They are powerful and wealthy.

I have no power and no wealth.

Its like dealing with the regimes in Russia, China, Iran or Saudi Arabia – although the Romans these days try to be more hidden and subtle about their tyrannies.

I’ll continue to blog and speak out.

If they suppress me on social media I will still speak out – in O’Connell Street in Dublin or at the gates of Maynooth.

I will accept being a voice in the wilderness.

Many better men and woman than me had to live like that.

  2. Hold fast, Pat, and strength to your efforts. I often weary of the rant of this blog, but that is the way of these things and it is no worse than the vile and toxic stuff on traditionalist sites. I am nevertheless immensely grateful for your energy and courage in managing this site day in and day out. It is absolutely necessary to be a dissident voice – the one thing the Church like all totalitarian set ups cannot abide. There really is nowhere else to go except out of the door altogether. The Tablet is well meaning but, I think, useless, as it is too focused on the “I’m a Pope Francis type of Catholic” camp. The same Pope Francis who said the other day that he had heard of one very large diocese where there were “several” homosexual priests operating. Can you imagine the shock? Then there is ACTA, who are well-intentioned old pussy cats ( cannot imagine anybody under 60 ), but are … well, the kind of people who read The Tablet. I shouldn’t be at all surprised if Gorgeous gets himself ordained after all – he is so much part of the system that it is very hard to imagine what the Church would be like without him. He is just a bit better looking, though not that great, and more brazen; otherwise absolutely typical. So what planet is Francis on? Has he never met a homosexual in the Vatican? Did they all give up the girl next-door in order to sacrifice themselves in the seminary? ( No titters, Missus, please! ) which is the usual bull-shit American seminaries like to put out – usually by a hunk in sports gear bouncing balls around the gym. So Francis is either utterly naive – don’t think so – or another bloody liar! Peace.

    1. Francis only needs to take a look at Georg Ganswein of his own household, who lives with Emeritus Pope Benedict. I mean, surely his real name is Gayorg ? Gays are all around him in the Vatican. Indeed, without them the whole thing would probably break down, they are so numerous. Who else would want to swan around and dress up all their lives like that, if not the gay boys ? I think they add a bit of colour to life, personally.

There may be some good and honest ones, but in my experience by and large they are a tribe of dishonest, hypocritical men who try to hide their doings from those who pay from the pews. Your own dirty laundry has been washed in public, and I think there is little that is not in the public domain about you, and yet you are able to carry on with some integrity and honesty. The RC bishops and priests for the most part are desperate to keep their dirty secrets secret. Don’t let them do it. Keep exposing them. Nobody is beyond the light of the truth.

        Expression of hatred and incitement to it are very different things, in Law as in Morality.
        You have absolutely NO right (inherent…whatever this means😅…or otherwise) not to be the ‘recipient’ of hatred. If you have done hateful things (like raping or sodomising children), then hatred of you (and its expression towards you) would be a perfectly human and reasonable reaction, and in no manner illegal.

If they have not been recorded as Catholic (for example) AND consented to a visit , then they are considered by the hospital authority as having not consented to a visit. This has been in operation in some Trusts in NI since Summer this year.
        If the patient or family member asks for a priest who is not the Hospital Chaplain to visit, then they may visit as the patient is deemed to have consented to a visit. The visiting priest is not allowed to visit other patients while there (unless the patients ask him to visit).

      1. @12:19 I read what you said about prior consent to visits. I think that a tactful sensitive “Hello, how are you doing?Would you like a chat, doesn’t have to be about religion” While wearing your collar or insignia of your role, might allow someone who had previously not thought they wanted God boverring, to change their mind and perhaps deride comfort. Or someone with no family or friends to make a human connection. Of course if you’re told, hopefully politely! To “Jog On” then that’s what you do. I certainly would object to any “In your face” proselytising or hell fire preaching to the unshriven but this having to request a visit seems to me a sad step too far.

      Whatever you do never contact Patsy, you have to get a priest who has the faculties to administer the sacraments. Your elderly parents would be horrified if they were in danger of death and you sent someone who does not have the right to administer the sacraments, they would not be valid, it would be a dreadful thing to do to your parents.

        Even a laicised priest has the duty, under penalty of mortal sin, to administer the sacrament in danger of death.

      No Patsy you are wrong, as an apostate you are under censor from the Holy See and whatever you do as regards the sacraments is not valid. You can’t just say you get your faculties from a higher source, anyone could say that. And do what they want, celebrating same sex marriage. ordaining women etc. as you do, none of these things are licit or valid no matter what you say. You may have said that to His Eminence Cathal Cardinal Daly but I wonder what he said to you.

  29. My Father lay in hospital for nearly two weeks in Craigavon. We requested a Priest but only a Nun came. It was pointless because he wanted anointing and confession. We have not forgotten that and at his Funeral the priest gave the impression he had the last rites but he never got them. It’s a scandal and I would like to know what do these chaplains actually do. We have made a complaint to the health trust about the lack of pastoral care.

      1. 10.08: Pat, are you now suggesting that the chaplains – those who are clerics – are deliberately ignoring the Catholic patients in hospitals? That is a practice that no hospital would tolerate. There are very stringent guudelines for chaplains who are trained specially to fulfil their role as chaplains. You know this TRUTH. To even hint that any chaiplan in a busy hospital is unconcerned is a lie and totally unjust to all chaplains, lay and clerical. Please stop “preying” on stories that you cannot substantiate

  31. There is a new policy in hospitals. When admitted, patients have to register that they are catholic and wish to see a chaplain or the chaplain won’t be given their details. Gone are the days when a chaplain can just walk in. You need to tell the nursing staff you want a visit from the chaplain or phone your pp at home and ASK.

        How do you know? the chaplain have to know that someone has requested to see them. You have been told that the rules have been changed and they can no longer walk into wards as they did. But of course you won’t accept that as it gives you yet another chance to have a dig at the Clergy. I know that the faithful who are in danger of death would want a priest who has the faculties to administer the Sacraments and not from an illicit one who is not a Catholic.

    4. Correct. New GDPR legislation has made it more difficult for patients to be visited by hospital chaplains. Regarding Daisy Hill, if the family member rings Reception (028 3083 5000), the name will be passed to the Chaplaincy Team and the patient is visited that same day.
