ANGRY PHONSIE is AGAINST yoga, anti-cancer treatments for girls and government regulations on Covid protections.
ANGRY PHONSIE is FOR protecting the Boilerhouse abbot of Mount Melleray and for starting confirmations and holy communion services being held against government guidelines.
ANGRY PHONSIE’S STATEMENT:
“The battle between Church and State continues as Bishop of Waterford and Lismore, Alphonsus Cullinan announced his intention to proceed with the sacraments of Communion and Confirmation in the coming weeks. At present, the Covid-19 regulation state, “ It is advised that religious ceremonies such as Baptisms, First Holy Communions, and Confirmations should not take place at this time.” Places of worship currently remain open for services for up to 50 attendees.
In a statement released last weekend, Bishop Cullinan said “as a Bishop, I must take into consideration: spiritual health and physical health.” He said that with “thousands being officially allowed at sporting events”, he can see no reason for the sacraments not to proceed.
Hitting out at NPHET and the government, Bishop Cullinan said the communication from them “leaves a great deal to be desired” where celebrating the sacraments is concerned.
He has officially sanctioned parishes and priests within his Diocese to proceed with the celebration of communion and confirmation from mid-August.

Phonsie in an a la carte bishop.
Challenges the moral issues he feels like challenging and ignores the issues that don’t suit his agenda.
Typical RC bishop.
