Rome has spoken. The cause is closed.
WILLIAM NOLAN is going to Glasgow.
MR KEENAN is staying in Paisley.
This is a bitter disappointment for a wee man who made is clear that he was the man for Glasgow.
“Man proposes. God disposes”.
I don’t think that John Keenan’s wrestling with this blog and its author helped his cause.
Nor did sending an estate agent solicitor letter.
The Church in Scotland is in as a bad a state as the Church in Ireland
The active gay group of priests known as THE DAISY CHAIN has not helped.
The Scottish bishops are turning a blind eye 😞
People say William Nolan is a nice man but a company man.
THE OPINION OF A SMALL GROUP OF SCOTTISH PRIESTS.
SCOTTISH PRIESTS OPINION ON ALL SCOTTISH BISHOPS
Leo Cushley – Blairentian & Friend of Dorothy. Diplomat. Egotistical. Obsessed with his appearance, never far from a mirror. Smarmy. Not liked by priests or people. Lots of gay priest friends.
Hugh Gilbert – convert. Monk at heart. Intelligent – well read and good writer. Holy. Useless bishop , refused Westminster, Edinburgh and now Glasgow.
Steve Robson – convert & Friend of Dorothy. Taught at Blair’s under Keith Patrick, they were close until Robson dumped Keith at time of scandal. A friend of Deacon Christopher Morris etal
Brian McGee – Blairentian. Good man, says his prayers. Thick as mince. Weak, out of his depth in Argyll. Friends with the Daisy Chain members whom he trained with at Thurles.
Bill Nolan – Blairentian. Company man, safe pair of hands. Cold hands, cold eyes, cold heart.
Philip Tartaglia – Blairentian. RIP. Useless.
Huge Bradley – morbidly obese & Friend of Dorothy. Church Administrator. Lazy. Best friends and holiday partner with Michael McCoy, Canon of Newcastle who hung himself over allegations of Child Abuse. Friend of Deacon Christopher Morris etal.
Joseph Total – Blairentian. Holy man but useless bishop. Afraid of Deacon Christopher Morris etal.
John Keenan – Salesian Junior Seminarian & Friend of Dorothy. Ambitious and bright. Mother’s vocation and NOT his; she controls him and doesn’t let him speak to his brother who is ex priest. Hasn’t tackled use of rent boys by his priests. Former member of The Faith Movement. Friend of Deacon Christopher Morris etal.
➕ All a bit boring (on the surface) but if you dig deeper you’ll see they’re all compromised except Bishop Gilbert and maybe Bishop McGee.
➕➕ A Blairentian is someone who attended Scotland’s Junior Seminary of St Mary’s, Blair’s, Aberdeen.
GLASGOW / SCOTLAND
Willie Nolan will simply fill a gap for 7 years.
He may clean out the Glasgow Curia.
He will not address the SCOTTISH DAISY CHAIN PROBLEM.
Or many other problems.
He will simply manage the decline and demise of the RCC in Scotland.
Ah well !
BISHOP FINTAN MONAHAN – THE ONLY TIME HE TOOK A BULL BY THE HORNS 😀
