GER FITZGERALDS UNEXPLAINED € 17,700 IS GROWING BY THE DAY.

GER IS A BIG TRUMP FAN 😞


Terry was Ger’s best friend/confidante and Terry has connections to other clerics in the RCC including Richard Purcell.

Terry alleges that a sum of money greater than 17k was given to Ger Fitzgerald by a certain private wealthy benefactor.

The money was supposed to be used for a specific purpose which Terry has not revealed.

Karen found the bank slip belonging to Fr Ger in March of this year and immediately informed Bishop Fintan and Cleo. The date on the bank slip was July 16, 2021, and showed a balance of c. 17,700 euros.

Terry has checked his records and he claims the the 17k in Ger’s account corresponds to the balance of the original amount that was given to Ger by a private benefactor which implies that the difference was spent.

Was it spent on what it was intended for?

We do not know.

Terry claims that if Ger was using the money for his own personal use then that is fraud.

Apparently the private benefactor does not wish to be identified as he/she does not want anyone hounding him/her for money.

After Cleo Yates and Bishop Fintan were told about the bank slip and questioned Ger, he claimed it was savings (see email from Cleo).

CLEO’S EMAIL TO KAREN

This is a lie. Fintan came to Sixmilebridge to speak with Terry about the matter. Terry did not reveal the benefactor’s name to Fintan.


Someone wrote a cryptic msg to Fr Todd on yesterdays blog mentioning a benefactor and “Lake View”.

Is Lake View a property that Ger perhaps was looking to purchase? Ger talked to me on a few occasions about his desire to purchase his own house/cottage. He had his eye on one cottage in Castleconnell which he took me and Terry to see.

.
Unanswered questions:


Has the Gardai questioned Ger about the money in his account?


Did Ger reveal the benefactor’s name to the guards?


Why did Ger lie to Cleo and Fintan and tell them that the 17k was savings?

This happened before the Bishop met with Terry.


Has the money been returned to the anonymous benefactor?


Does Fintan know who the benefactor is?


Did Ger use the money for his own personal use?


Where are the receipts for the benefactor’s money that was spent before the discovery of the 17k still left in Fitzgerald’s account?

PAT SAYS

So, the € 17,700 was part of the money an anonymous benefactor gave to Ger to complete a project?

What project?

If € 17 700 was what was left over after the mystery project was completed, how much was the original sum – € 35,000; € 50,000 or more?

And of the project was completed why was the € 17,700, plus receipts not returned to the benefactor?

Did the benefactor tell Ger – “Keep the change”?

In any event we are talking here about substantial five figure sums and openness and clarity are required

FINTAN AT THE GALWAY RACES

I Hope he wasn’t betting € 17,700 on that old nag FATHER GER 😀

Dear Bishop Tom,

As you know, I have been blogging about Silverstream Priory and your on-going inaction about same. However, it was brought to my attention that during your tenure as the Ordinary of the Diocese of Meath a large property was purchased by St. Finian’s Diocesan Trust in an exclusive part of Mullingar.

The property in question is located at: 4 Ardmore Hills. The said Trust is located at: Diocesan Office, Dublin Road, Mullingar, Co Westmeath, Ireland. I note that the so-called “charitable objectives” of the entity are: “Primary object is to act as permanent trustee for the property and investments of every kind, owned by, held in trust for, or used in connection with the Roman Catholic Church in the Diocese of Meath”.

A search of website of the Charities Regulator indicates that “Saint Finians [sic] Diocesan Trust” has been deregistered. And, the reason stated is that: “This organisation is no longer deemed to be registered under section 40 of the Charities Act 2009 as it no longer has an entitlement to exemption under section 207 or 208 of the Taxes Consolidation Act 1997”.

Therefore, I write with the following questions.

I note that the Folio shows that currently the property is unencumbered; it is not subject to the burden of a mortgage. Was the Trust a cash buyer? How many other residential properties have been purchased by the Trust on your watch?

By virtue of your appointment as the Ordinary of the Diocese of Meath, did you become the Chair and/or the individual with operational control with responsibility for day-to-day decision-making for the aforesaid Trust? We can reasonably infer that the other trustees will rubberstamp your decision-making.

If so: did you and the trustees authorise the purchase of the property at: 4 Ardmore Hills, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath?

Is it true that the property at 4 Ardmore Hills serves as your principal residence? If so, how did the Trust justify the reckless profligacy that was the purchase of the said property?

If the property is serving as your primary residence, are you, Bishop Deenihan, living at the property rent-free or do you pay a peppercorn rent from your monthly subsistence that you receive by virtue of your appointment as the Ordinary of the Diocese? Is it classed as a taxable benefit, and do you declare same to the Irish tax authorities?

If you are living in the property: have you had a chapel installed where the Eucharist can be celebrated?

If the property does NOT serve as your principal residence: on what basis was the property purchased? Was it purchased as an investment? If so, is the Diocese of Meath in receipt of rental income from same? If so, is the income being declared to the Revenue Commissioners? And, is the tax being paid on any income?

Since the property was purchased: has it been modernised, i.e., has the decor been updated/renewed? If so, can you provide updated pictures of the interior?

Anticipating as always, your prompt response to the questions contained herein; I and the readers of my blog look forward to receiving your answers, and hopefully updated pictures of the interior.

With prayerful best wishes,

+ Pat Buckley

COMPULSORY SEX EDUCATION IN N. IRELAND.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-62340425

The Northern Ireland secretary says he will consider introducing compulsory relationship and sex education (RSE) in schools if the Department of Education does not.

BBC News NI has learned that Shailesh Vara has written to the department to inform them of his intention to act.

Mr Vara said he had a legal duty to act on the recommendations of a United Nations (UN) committee report on RSE.

It said RSE in Northern Ireland should be compulsory and comprehensive.

It said it should cover topics such as access to abortion and prevention of early pregnancy.

In response, the department said Education Minister Michelle McIlveen had written to the Northern Ireland secretary inviting him to meet her to discuss the issue.

In a statement to BBC News NI, a Department of Education spokesperson also said that RSE in schools in Northern Ireland “already provides opportunities for young people to learn about the implications of sexual maturation and the emotional, social and moral implications of early sexual activity”.

Each school in Northern Ireland is currently required by the department to develop its own policy.

PAT SAYS

It’s very important that in N. Ireland we have a professionally drawn up sex education programme and not one from any church that brings with it the overtones of sin, guilt and fear

We also need ALL our schools to be STATE SCHOOLS where Protestant, Catholic and other children are all educated together.

Segregated education has contributed to The Troubles and the hatred and killing in N. Ireland.

Church teaching and “morals” should be confined to the church, the home and Sunday school.

This is the essence of the separation of Church and State.

We need our governments and politicians to resist the churches wanting to use schools for their propaganda.

Churches should have the same status in law as golf clubs etc.

If churches and religious want to run their own schools they should pay for them 100%.

And they should be bound to the state curriculum in all subjects.

DUNKELD BISHOP FACING EARLY RETIREMENT.

“Bishop Buckley,

The Apostolic Nuncio to Great Britain has asked for Bishop Stephen Robson of Dunkeld to resign. The spin will be that he’s retiring early due to ill health. He does have Parkinson’s. Here’s why he’s really retiring:

1) Relationship with Keith Patrick.

Stephen was a long term close friend of Cardinal Keith Patrick O’Brien; Keith was known as Bunny and Stephen as Pettle. They taught us in Blair’s together. When Stephen/Pettle  was consecrated (auxiliary) bishop of St Andrew’s & Edinburgh, the MC and Cathedral Administrator, Mgr Michael Regan who died of HIV/AIDS, hid the crozier immediately before Mass on top of a cupboard; he’d slept with Keith on the promise of being made an Auxiliary and that’s why he was one of the three who outed Bunny to The Nuncio. Hell hath no fury like a lady priest scorned. When Bunny was removed Pettle abandoned him, cut him off and had nothing to do with him.

N.B: When Lay On My Cushion became Archbishop in succession to Bunny he did so with the agreement that Rome would move Pettle on from the Archdiocese and so he was sent to Dunkeld. There Pettle replaced one of Bunny’s old love rivals with Cardinal Granny Grey hips, the predatory alcoholic Vincent Logan. Pettle has indulged all the Dunkeld clergy queens in lace with smells and bells everywhere since arriving ithere. He publicly ridiculed Pope Francis instructions on the TLM. Lay On My Cushion has been working with The Nuncio to have Pettle retired off.​

2) Relationship with Christopher Morris.

It was well known in The Via Cassia that Stephen, then Spiritual Director, was having very close to Christopher Morris which continued when Christopher was dismissed and still living in Rome as a lay student. Stephen knew of all Christopher’s conquests inside and outside The Via Cassia whether consensual or not. He was compromised and became Christopher’s Chief Protector and fought tooth and nail to have Christopher readmitted and eventually ordained. He intended to attend Christopher’s recent ordination but was told by the Nuncio not to attend and like Sean Brady cited Covid for his non attendance.

MILLARVIE

N. B: When Father Rector Milarvie had Christopher removed from the Via Cassia for his predatory behaviour in the college and gay bars of Rome, Stephen openly opposed his removal, was incandescent with rage and was swearing in the Salone and Refectory to and about Father Rector. When Father Rector was returned to the archdiocese of Glesgay for not towing the party line he was set up by Archbishop Conti & Stephen Robson and sent to the parish of Christopher’s long term lover. He had already set honey traps for 2 other priests including Mgr Huge Bradley, VG in Glesgay, who fell into it.

FATHER MILLARVIE

From Daily Record

Angry parishoners were told to “go to confession” after they raised objections to their new priest accused of “unwanted harassment” during a drunken homosexual incident.

Father Paul Milarvie was accused of trying to “constrain” a male guest at his parish house in 2010, just months after he returned to Scotland

That led to an investigation by the Archdiocese of Glasgow.

Milarvie was later allowed to keep his parish and dragged the church into a row over homosexuality after the incident was classed as “totally unworthy of a priest”.

The complaint against Milarvie alleged he invited a man to dinner at his parish house and an incident, which is disputed, occurred.

Milarvie apologised to the man, who agreed to return for a second dinner. It was during this evening he claimed he was subjected to unwanted harassment.

After an investigation, Archbishop Mario Conti later said there had been no crime committed and claimed there had been “consensual” activity, rather than an unwelcome approach by Milarvie.

He said allowing for the “morally reprehensible over-indulgence” in drink, Milarvie’s actions had been “voluntary and totally unworthy behaviour on the part of a priest”.

Now churchgoers at St Mary’s chapel in Duntocher, near Glasgow, are up in arms over the proposed move by Milarvie to their parish.

One, who asked not to be named, said: “Parishioners are outraged 
and disgusted at his dark secrets. 
Meetings are being held to discuss the way forward.

“This priest is not wanted or welcomed. It’s a disgrace after the way he’s behaved and this dreadful issue has been swept under carpet by past and present church 
authorities. No one is listening to the people who pay for the upkeep of the church.”

The parishioner claims they emailed and phoned Archbishop Philip Tartaglia, a friend of Milarvie, but were ignored.

He added: “People are utterly appalled. We have contacted 
Archbishop Tartaglia and have been met with a disgraceful attitude.

“The priest we spoke to said we should ‘go to confession’ and that Milarvie was ‘forgiven’.

“We said that wasn’t good enough and that we’re very concerned he’ll do this again. He said, ‘We don’t know if he’ll do it again but we hope not’. Disgraceful.

People deserve to know the truth. We want this priest out. Not only of our parish but of the priesthood.”

The case, which came to light in 2012 after the church spoke out against SNP plans to legalise same-sex marriage, prompted accusations the church was confused in its 
attitude to homosexuality.

Milarvie, 51, was vice-rector of the Pontifical Scots College in Rome from 2001 to 2005 and rector from 2005 to 2009. He is currently the parish priest for St Flannan’s in Kirkintilloch, near Glasgow.

A spokesman for the Archdiocese of Glasgow said: “Fr Milarvie was involved in an isolated drink-related incident some years ago which was well documented at the time.

He was subject to a Church disciplinary process with which he complied fully. He has served without blemish since that time and is loved by his present parishioners at St Flannan’s who have been fully supportive of him and are sorry to lose him.

“The Archbishop has full confidence in Fr Milarvie and believes he will make a fine parish priest for St Mary’s.”

Happy Retirement Bishop Robson; you and your type will not be missed by the Church in Scotland that you’ve destroyed. The truth will out about your time “lecturing” us in Blair’s when you should’ve been protecting us.​

AN EMAIL TO PHONSIE THE TORMENTOR.

Dear Phonsie,

Over the past few days we have been dealing with your mistreatment and bullying of Father Richard Geoghegan on my blog:​ bishoppatbuckley.blog.

There are very few clerics on this island who will tell you to your face what they think of you.

But I am one who will!

You are a right wing and vicious episcopal bully. And like all bullies you bully people who are weak, sensitive and who cannot stand up to you.

It appears to me that you

1. May be a canonical Roman Catholic ( in the worse meaning of that term) but you are certainly not a Christian in any way.

2. That you have serious mental, emotional and psychosexual problems.

3. That you are simply a bully who needs to be tackled and brought down.

4. That you appear to enjoy inflicting hurt on people of all kinds and of all ages – especially vulnerable and weak people.

Your maltreatment of Father Geoghegan is despicable and dishonest. Richard always wanted to be a priest and you used a time of crisis in his life to walk all over him. Shame on you!

I do allow the right of reply on my blog and you are welcome to submit a reply for publication via​ bishopbuckley1@outlook.com

Add to that -​ your irrational outbursts on matter like the cervical cancer vaccination for girls, yoga and you bullying of people during church ceremonies -​ and the fact that you have young people living with you compound your absolute your unsuitability for either priesthood or episcopate.

Sincerely,

+ Pat Buckley

CONGREGATIO PRO CLERICIS  

(Dispensatio ab oneribus  Ordinatiioni conexis)  

 

Prot. N. 2018/32478/23  

 

JOHN MURPHY of the diocese of Dromore humbly requests dispensation from sacred celibacy and from the obligations connected to Sacred Ordination.  

 

The Holy Father FRANCIS,  

 

                                         on the 3rd day of March 2018  

 

after having received the report of the Congregation for the Clergy, has given his consent tothe request, together with the following provisions:  

1.  The Rescript comprising the grace of the dispensation, to be transmitted as soon aspossible by the Ordinary of the petitioner, in conformity with the norms found below (n. 2),  

a) takes effect from the moment in which it is notified to the petitioner;

clerical state. These two elements can neverbe separated, being, in the current praxis, part of a single procedure;  

  1. if the petitioner is a religious, this Rescript also includes a dispensation from his vows;  
  2. in addition, said Rescript includes, if necessary, an absolution from censures;  

2.   The notification of the grace of dispensation for the petitioner may be done either personally (by the same Ordinary,by his delegate, or by an ecclesiastical notary) or by registered letter. The Ordinary must return a copy, duly signed by the petitioner, as ar. att-statior. of I*.- reception of that Rescriptand of the acc•ptar.ce of the norms.

5.   The ecclesiastical Authority to which it pertains to communicate the Rescript to the dispensed cleric, is to endeavor as far as possibleto see to it that he takes an active part in the life of the Peopleof God, in a manner consonant with his new state, to give edifying exampleand, thereby, show himself as a devotedson of the Church, fulfilling useful service to the Christian communityand placing at its servicethe gifis and talents given him by God. At the same time, he must be informed of the following points:  

a)   The dispensed cleric automatically loses the rightsproper to the clerical state, and all those connected to it, as well as the related obligations (cf. cann. 273-289); the dispensed

6.   It is desirable that the dispensed cleric be accepted in the community of the Church where he resides,to continue his journey, faithfulto the duties of his baptismal vocation. In receiving the dispensed cleric in the Church community tamquam laicus, it will be necessary for the Bishop to take care that any functions or services that may eventually be entrusted to him will notcause wonderment or scandalamong the faithful.  

7.  Considering the concrete circumstances, according to the prudent judgment of thecompetent Bishop, the dispensed clericwill be able to carry out a directive officeor the duty of teaching the theological disciplines in institutions of lower studies that depend upon ecclesiastical authority. The same holds for the dispensed cleric concerning the teaching of Religion in similar institutions that do not depend upon ecclesiastical authority.

DIOCESE OF WATERFORD AND LISMORE DYING FROM “PNONSIEITIS”

PHONSIE THE TORMENTOR

“Dear Bishop Pat,

I am a longstanding priest of the Diocese of Waterford and Lismore.

I pen this after much thought and prayer and after discussions with colleagues.

Our diocese is being destroyed by a tyrant and a bully – Phonsie Cullinan.

Since he arrived our good name has been dragged through the mud by his irrational and right wing pronouncements on matters such as the cervical cancer preventative vaccine for girls and his antideluvian pronouncements on matters like yoga.

FR RICHARD GEOGHEGAN:

FATHER RICHARD

In the recent past he has bullied Father Richard into signing an application to Rome for laicisation. Richard always wanted to be a priest and was always a good priest. If you want to, visit Carrick on Suir and ask about him.

He has always been totally pastoral and famous for his punctuality. Children and adults loved his short but straight to the point homilies. He kept parish books and registers to perfection.

Richard also endeared himself to all with his humanity, his sense of humour, his non clerical friendliness and his involvement in parish events, pantomimes and dramas.

Yes, he was and is “different” – but in the very best of ways. Some say he is eccentric? But how refreshing a relief that is from the black suit and never smiling brigade.

He is a very sensitive man and Phonsie spotted that from the beginning and used it against Richard. Richard likes to be called Richard. But Phonsie taunted him by calling him “Richie”.

Phonsie made a point of sending for Richard after dark and we know that after some of those meetings Richard emerged to both cry and vomit.

Richard is a people person. Phonsie appointed him to a very isolated parish which had been left in a horrible state by his predecessor. Richard was driven, to attempt suicide an attempt that thankfully did not end in his death.

Phonsie often reminded him of that dark hour in a most unkind and non pastoral fashion.

Even at Confirmations now many children don’t want their children photographed with Phonsie.

Since he arrived Phonsie has always had a number of young men and women living with him in his house. Creepy! What is this about?

SUPPORT OF RICHARD PURCELL

None of us can understand the strange relationship between Phonsie and the now deposed Richard Purcell.

Phonsie supported him to the bitter end.

What was all this really about?

We know how much you love Waterford and Lismore. You finished your training in our seminary. You were ordained in our cathedral 46 years ago.

You were a lifelong friend of our Monsignor John Shine. And he thought as much of you as you did of him.

JOHN SHINE RIP

We were absolutely appalled at how Phonsie treated you at Monsignor Shine’s funeral by creating a totally unChristian scene and refusing you Holy Communion.

He even called for some of the priests present on the sanctuary to physically remove you from the church. My God!

Bishop Russell who ordained you was a gentleman. Bishop Lee was a good pastor to his priests.

Phonsie often says that you, Pat are “pure evil”.

But the priests and people of Waterford know who the truly evil one is – and its not you, dear Pat.

Even the retired Bishop Lee dreads Phonsie’s lunch invitations and offer those occasions up for the souls in Purgatory.

Please continue your close scrutiny of Cullinan so that we might soon be free of him.

With the kindest regards,

Xxxxxxx Xxxxxxxx

Waterford and Lismore”.

PAT

Dear Brother,

Thank you for your most welcome and self explanatory email.

I’ve known from the beginning that Phonsie was a disastrous appointment.

Now that clergy, parents and even the bishop emeritus are expressing frustration and angst things are really gathering pace.

He must be removed ASAP.

How that can be achieved is not clear.

Hopefully the Holy Spirit will intervene.

PRIESTS AND HOMOSEXUAL GROOMING.

https://www.churchmilitant.com/news/article/double-loss-in-court-for-alleged-homopredator

On Friday, the California Court of Appeal for the Fifth District handed down two separate rulings rejecting Harrison’s claims for defamation. The court reversed lower court rulings in Harrison’s favor and ordered that he pay attorneys’ fees and other costs in each case.

Harrison had filed the lawsuits in 2019 against Stephen Brady of Roman Catholic Faithful, a whistleblower group that exposes clerical corruption; and Ryan Gilligan, a former monk and associate of Harrison who accused him of homosexual grooming.

This makes Harrison’s third loss in court, after a judge in May 2021 dismissed his defamation lawsuit against the diocese of Fresno.

Harrison, ordained in 1987, is credibly accused by at least seven victims of homosexual abuse. In 2019, Gilligan was among several accusers who came forward publicly, leading to increased media scrutiny of Harrison’s case, including a 2019 press conference held by Brady’s Roman Catholic Faithful in California.

In separate defamation actions, Harrison sued Gilligan for his allegations and Brady for his comments about Harrison made at the press conference.

In both of Friday’s rulings, the court found that the comments made by Brady and Gilligan were protected speech:

Brady and his organization, Roman Catholic Faithful, Inc., work to uncover evidence of sexual misbehavior by Catholic priests and Brady claimed to be seeking the truth regarding these allegations. For the reasons set forth below, we conclude that the allegedly defamatory statements identified by Harrison are protected by the fair report privilege … .

And from the ruling on Gilligan’s case:

The impetus for the lawsuit is the claim by appellant that Harrison subjected him to inappropriate sexual advances, acted inappropriately with children, and sexually abused at least one minor child. … For the reasons set forth below, we conclude that the allegedly defamatory statements identified by Harrison are protected by the fair report privilege … .

“All I ever did was speak my truth,” Gilligan said in comments to Church Militant, “and all I want now is Craig Harrison and his attorneys to leave my family and me alone.”

On Friday, the California Court of Appeal for the Fifth District handed down two separate rulings rejecting Harrison’s claims for defamation. The court reversed lower court rulings in Harrison’s favor and ordered that he pay attorneys’ fees and other costs in each case.

Harrison had filed the lawsuits in 2019 against Stephen Brady of Roman Catholic Faithful, a whistleblower group that exposes clerical corruption; and Ryan Gilligan, a former monk and associate of Harrison who accused him of homosexual grooming.

This makes Harrison’s third loss in court, after a judge in May 2021 dismissed his defamation lawsuit against the diocese of Fresno.

Harrison, ordained in 1987, is credibly accused by at least seven victims of homosexual abuse. In 2019, Gilligan was among several accusers who came forward publicly, leading to increased media scrutiny of Harrison’s case, including a 2019 press conference held by Brady’s Roman Catholic Faithful in California.

“I am very grateful,” said Brady in remarks to Church Militant. “This suit delayed all my other work to some degree, to say nothing of legal fees, which we now hope to recover.”

Brady has had to spend more than $100,000 in legal costs defending himself in this litigation.

“The best thing, as far as I’m concerned, is that now I can get back to my work without worrying about this nonsense,” Brady added.

“We are pleased with the two rulings issued by the Fifth District Court of Appeals finding that Craig Harrison’s separate lawsuits against our clients should both be dismissed under California’s Anti-SLAPP statute,” said attorneys Paul Jonna and Jeffrey Trissell, who represented Brady and Gilligan.

“California’s Anti-SLAPP statute was intended to dispose of frivolous and baseless lawsuits just like the ones Mr. Harrison filed against our clients,” they noted. “To disincentivize such baseless lawsuits, the Anti-SLAPP statute provides that a prevailing defendant’s attorneys’ fees must be paid by the losing plaintiff.”

“We will now seek to recover from Mr. Harrison the substantial attorneys’ fees that our clients have incurred during this process,” they added.

Multiple Accusers

The diocese placed Harrison on leave in April 2019 after a man accused the priest of abusing him when he was a 16-year-old altar boy. Other accusers also came forward, including Gilligan.

“I was in Fr. Craig’s inner circle from 2011 to 2016 and am a victim of his inappropriate touching, lies, manipulation and abuse of power,” said Gilligan in a public statement.

“I witnessed him being inappropriate with children, giving gifts/money, saying sexual jokes, touching, and being alone with them,” he continued. “I have also witnessed him taking advantage and controlling the lives of younger men entrusted to him that have had drug or alcohol problems.”

In a statement to the Bakersfield Police Department in May 2021, Gilligan related to police instances of Harrison’s alleged inappropriate activity, including:

  • Touching of genitals
  • Pornography
  • Telling of homosexual jokes
  • Blackmailing him to keep silent by threatening to reveal sins he confessed

In response, Harrison smeared Gilligan as a liar and an alcoholic. Gilligan stood by his claims and expressed little surprise that Harrison would try to discredit him by destroying his reputation.

Harrison was initially accused of abuse more than 20 years ago, in 1998, by a male teen who lived in the rectory of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Firebaugh. He claimed Harrison would inspect his genitals each night under the pretext that it would reveal whether the boy was doing drugs.

The allegation is identical to that of another boy who lived in one of Harrison’s homes for troubled teens.

A 2004 report obtained by Church Militant written by former FBI agent Tom Walsh quotes a former resident of one of the boys’ homes, who relayed that “every morning Harrison lined up all the boys who were residing in the house and examined each boy’s testicles with a flashlight. Telling them that by doing this he could tell if any one of them was using narcotics.”

Harrison’s alleged conduct is also identical to two other accusers who have more recently stepped forward, saying Harrison would also inspect their genitals, using the same reasons. Another accuser claims Harrison pinned him against the wall and rubbed his erect penis against him.

Most of the alleged victims are Latino males from troubled backgrounds.

The 2004 FBI investigator’s report goes on to detail evidence of at least one suicide of a boy who lived with Harrison.

This case from the US is a strong reminder to us that many gay priests are involved in the deliberate “grooming” of young men in their parishes and communities, including and especially in Ireland.

This problem is a real facet of the priestly gay issues in the Archdiocese of Armagh and other Irish dioceses.

It has also being a feature of life in Silverstream monastery.

GER FITZGERALD USES KAREN AGAIN – USING HER PHOTOGRAPHS WITHOUT HER PERMISSION.

KAREN’S PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN BY HER ON HER PHONE.

PAT SAYS

Does Ger Fitzgerald have that overall sense of entitlement that so many priests seem to have?

Those photographs were taken by Karen herself and on her phone.

She is the one with copyright to those photographs surely?

Ger should have explicitly asked Karen’s permission to use then – especially as he has published them in a book that he will be making profits from.

He tried to cover himself with the following piece in the book:

He knew that Karen is the copyright holder of those photographs.

He made NO EFFORT to contact Karen and seek her permission to publish.

Once again, Ger, showing arrogance and disrespect for the normal manners in life.

I believe Karen should sue Ger over breack of copyright.

ARMAGH PRIEST – ALL ARMAGH’S GOOD PRIESTS DEAD.

WASTER – ENABLER
THE VG – SILENCE?

FROM ARMAGH PRIEST:

“Pat, thank you for highlighting the wrongs of our church.

As a priest for over 25 years, I can confidently tell you that the majority of clerics are in it for the lifestyle, with no accountability,  from the top down.

I have heard of sad cases, up to the present day, and like yourself, have informers here and there.

What is going on in my diocese and in many others I am sure is appalling.

I spent time on the Council of Priests and was sickened to my gut.

The good ones are dead Pat.

It is now a collection of gay man who can’t spent the money of young families quick enough on their elaborately furnished parochial houses, Mercedes, Jaguar and BMW cars etc. I intend to retire soon.


As for the younger clerics in Armagh; well, from bad to worse. As a Priest, I call on the public to do the wise thing, cut the money supply and choke the monster.

Then we might see humility”.

PAT SAYS

Is it not very sad that a serving Armagh priest has had to pen the above words to me via my blog.

Those who write off ALL priests forget about today’s priest and proests like him who are totally disillusioned and almost at breaking point.

He is preparing to exit.

I hope his exit will be possible and good for him.

I would want to support him.

I’m sure others would too.

ARCHDIOCESE OF BIRMINGHAM SAW PAEDOPHILE PRIESTS AS “STRUGGLING”!

QUIGLEY

Joseph Quigley, a former Catholic priest in the Archdiocese of Birmingham, was jailed last year.

A report by Barnado’s found the church was aware of concerns but did not listen to victims, challenge his behaviour or deal with complaints.

The authors made 18 recommendations which the Archdiocese accepted in full. It apologised for its failures.

The report said concerns had been raised about Quigley, from Staffordshire, as early as 1990.

There was evidence the church was aware of an “immoral relationship” while he was working in Warwickshire but it was not considered a safeguarding issue because the boy was 16.

“The view of [Quigley’s] behaviour, being that of a Catholic priest who had a ‘relationship’ with another adult male, rather than an abuser of an adolescent boy, persisted without any challenge,” the report said.

He was sent to the US for therapy in 2008 and the report authors said they were struck by how Quigley was treated “almost as if he were a patient with mental health needs or was a recovering alcoholic”.

The Archdiocese “focused to a considerable extent on his needs as a struggling priest who needed help and support to understand his behaviour, rather than as an abusive perpetrator who used his revered position to groom and sexually abuse.

It went on: “There was very little to suggest his abusive behaviours, the impact of his actions on others, the need for reparation, or any discussions about risks he presented or preventative measures to reduce those risks, were in any way explored or addressed.”

“No action” was taken to share concerns or seek advice from safeguarding agencies, the report said, adding: “As far as we could ascertain there was no risk assessment or further consideration of what these continued risks might mean for those with whom [Quigley] came into contact.”

His status as a revered priest allowed the abuse to continue for years. The report said that without the intervention of one of his victim’s therapists in 2018, it was possible his behaviour would never have been brought to light.

Quigley was convicted of multiple counts of engaging in sexual activity with a child, sexual assault, child cruelty, and false imprisonment.

In 2019, the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse found that if Birmingham’s Archdiocese focussed less on its reputation, children could have been spared from abuse.

It followed more than 130 allegations of abuse against 78 individuals associated with the church.

Barnardo’s found there had been “evidence of some welcome changes” since that report but made 18 recommendations for further improvements.

Responding to the findings, the Archdiocese said it had “learnt much from this case and the report and we are committed to improving our standards and processes”.

“I am deeply sorry for what happened to those who have been harmed by Joseph Quigley,” Archbishop Bernard Longley said.

“I welcome the report and the reflection that will come from this. There is work that still needs to be carried forward and that’s something which lies upon my shoulders.

“I can only apologise to them on behalf of the Archdiocese of Birmingham, and I do so unreservedly.”

PAT SAYS

The RC hierarchy glibally deliberately failed to see paedophilia as a CRIME and to suit their own purposes they saw it as a MORAL STRUGGLE for the priest for which he needed love, support and reassurance.

The reactions of bishops, priests and nuns was: “Poor Father has a problem. Pray for him”.

The RCC has always seen its canon law and teachings as superior to civil or criminal law

For them paedophilia was ONLY A SIN THAT COULD BE FORGIVEN and not A CRIME REQUIRING police investigation, court processes ending in prison sentences.

That us why the RCC should gave ABSOLUTELY NO INFLUENCE over states, policing and the legal process.

Judges, policemen and lawyers should be professionals first and Catholics second.
