Reports are coming through of the drugging and sexual assault of a young man by an Armagh priest.
The matter was reported to the police.
EAMON MARTIN knows about the accusation and has all the details given to him.
Armagh’s safeguarding officer AIDAN GORDON has also been involved.
No action has been taken so far against the priest.
He is being treated as a priest “in good standing”.
In fact, it seems that in Armagh being a sexually active gay priests gets you brownie points with Aunty Amy.
DEACON RAPE IN SCOTLAND
From a Scottish priest:
We’ve just learnt today that there are 2 Parish Priests in the Archdiocese of Glasgow who were accused of rape of deacons.
One is historical from 80s and most recent one was in the naughties.
Deacon from 80s left and is now married; the other deacon is a PP.
We’re getting more details over next week or so. I believe Police are currently involved in historical one and that PP was removed for a short period of time but now returned.
Re the allegation from naughties the archdiocese threatened then deacon if he went to police he wouldn’t be ordained.
There are 100,000 less Catholics in Glasgow than there were in 1950.
