This is Fr. Con Cronin PP of Passage West in Cork doing the floss dance at the First Holy Communion Mass.
I’m all for priests getting their sleeves rolled up and mixing.
But I think an older priest dancing on the altar in vestments is a bit OTT.
Mind you, it is better than a PP having sex on the altar with a seminarian!
VERY SENIOR SEXUALLY ACTIVE GAY CLERIC.
There is a certain story circulation around an Irish diocese about a very senior gay cleric who was sexually active when he was in seminary.
He was caught in flagrante delicto with one of his lovers who was immediately expelled.
The cleric we speak of was allowed to stay?
Later he celebrated his ex lover’s wedding to a female, although he knew that the groom was a paedophile!
He has climbed the ecclesiastical ladder in spite of him not being a looker and not having either a personality or an intellect.
He has no people skills and does not show compassoon or kindness.
One wonders how he climbed the ladder.
An English priest friend of mine, who spent a lot of time in Rome once told me:
The way to get promoted in the church is to do your superiors sexual favours”.
Perhaps that the secret in Ireland too?
