“Satan’s smoke has made its way into the temple of God through some crack.”—Pope Paul VI, 1972
I have been working with an Irish parish priest who was drugged and raped by another parish priest.
This happened a number of years ago and to date has not been reported to the bishops involved or the police.
But it will be reported to both Church and police in the very near future.
The rapist priest is VERY CLOSE to an Irish bishop, who the victim priest says is gay himself.
And I suspect that this bishop is weilding more than his crosier.
Drug rape is not new among clerics.
There was an unresolved case in Dublin.
There is a non resolved case in Armagh.
And there are other cases in the pipeline.
The whole gay clerical scandal is not just about sex.
It’s very much about drug addiction and crimes like rape and financial fraud.
The Irish bishops know about many of these cases and some of them are personally compromised.
When I started out investigating the Irish hierarchy and clergy I did not know how bad things really are.
I thought I was unshockable.
But what I am gradually discovering is shocking to the very roots.
