AMY MARTIN is all up tight and having hot flushes because God was called a rapist on an RTE comedy show.
****BUT AMY HAD NOTHING TO SAY WHEN A PRIEST AND SEMINARIAN HAD GAY SEX ON AN IRISH CHURCH ALTAR??
I would regard the gay altar sex as far more blasphemous towards God – and Amy & Co could have sacked the men involved – but stayed silent and did nothing!!!
RTÉ apologises after complaints over NYE sketch.
RTE apologised to those who were offended by the segment
RTÉ has apologised after a number of people complained over a Waterford Whispers sketch segment in the New Year’s Eve countdown programme, which was broadcast on RTÉ One television.
In a statement, the broadcaster acknowledged that some viewers were offended by the sketch and said that around 600 complaints have been received so far.
It said: “RTÉ recognises that matters which can cause offence naturally differ from person to person, within comedy and satire in particular.
“Having reviewed the feedback and complaints received up to this point, RTÉ wishes to apologise to those who were offended by the segment.
“The formal complaints received by RTÉ are being entered into our complaints system and will be responded to in accordance with the relevant statutory process.”
In the ‘Waterford Whispers’ news report, presented by former RTÉ News presenter Aengus MacGrianna, God is described as being “the latest figure to be implicated in ongoing sexual harassment scandals”.
The clip ended with a line that movie producer Harvey Weinstein, who is serving a 23-year sentence in the US for rape and sexual assault, had “requested for a retrial in Ireland”.
The Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland called on RTÉ to remove what he described as the “deeply offensive and blasphemous clip”.
In a tweet, Archbishop Eamon Martin said he was “shocked” that the programme’s producer or editor “didn’t realise how deeply offensive was a mocking ‘news report’ accusing God of rape & reporting his imprisonment”.
He continued: “To broadcast such a deeply offensive and blasphemous clip about God & our Blessed Mother Mary during the Christmas season on ‘NYE Countdown Show’ on @RTE, @RTEOne & on Eve of the Solemn Feast of Mary, Mother of God is insulting to all Catholics and Christians”.
Dr Martin also added the Twitter handle of RTÉ Director General Dee Forbes.
IN REPLY TO AMY
Is it not time that institutions like RTE told Any Martin to go and suck a zube?
Ireland, no longer is a Confessional Catholic State.
Amy & Co are going to have to get used to becoming increasingly irrelevant and contemptible in our new secular and plural state.
600 people out if 4 + million complained to RTE about this scene.
I didn’t see it and have no desire to see it.
As a Christian I don’t like God being insulted.
But God is a big guy. He can look after Himself.
And the likes of Amy do not represent God in my eyes.
WHY DID YOU NOT MAKE A STATEMENT WHEN A PP BONKED A SEMINARIAN ON THE ALTAR IN KILDORRERY CHURCH?
WAS THAT NOT A GREATER BLASPHEMY?
PUT YOUR OWN IN ORDER FIRST!
AMY MARTIN AND ROME
I am informed by an Armagh source that Amy Martin had a very serious missive from Rome concerning some of his priests and seminarians.
