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.​

Unless Bishop Fintan introduced Ger to the girls or he’s psychic, I can’t see how he can take any responsibility for this saga. Ger was flawed from day one of his vocation and after reading this blog over the last 15 months you could confidently say, he has some mental health issues and too is vulnerable. After the YD saga, Fintan placed Ger out of ministry and Karen knew he was out of ministry with no parish. Surely that was a red flag for Karen? A priest without a parish and his name in the gutter throughout the diocese and she believed his lies???? All she had to do was research GF and from Ennis to Birr, his reputation is tarred. Fintan is the easy target here. He did listen to both women and believed them, as Bishop Pat says. The future is bleek for GF and the church and unless privy to information from Westbourne we may never know. I believe Ger should go and go himself but that’s up to him and his conscious but if I was a betting man, and I’m not, a fiver on Fintan and Canon Law to deliver. Well done to Bishop Pat on supporting the women, women were long unsupported by the church and thank you for being there for them but why are we still flogging this on the blog? YD has moved on but Karen seems unable to get over the hurt. She will name call and shout when anyone disagrees or challanges her ways, she has lost all her inhibitions and reveals personal information. Her anger is felt by all who read the blog and although most support her in GF leaving ministry she attacks those who question her behaviour and motives and turned the GF saga into a witch hunt.
So today we have two vulnerable people, one with an agenda of ‘no surrender’ and the other moving on, or so it may seem as we have no information but both need some intervention and healing. This blog is not that place.

Like

@ 1:02
What makes you say Ger was flawed from day one of his vocation? If so why was he ordained? Is Bishop Fintan not Ger’s boss? Was Ger supposed to be a professional with professional moral ethical responsibilities? The entire saga sounds very peculiar. There seems to be a lot more to the matter. Why doesn’t Bishop Fintan contact Bishop Pat to arrange appropriate joint intervention and healing off blog.

Like

1:02 I will respond in part now:
First and foremost YD is still reading the blog and commenting and I am in no way judging her.
I would like to point out that GF presented me with a very different narrative in relation to the Ennis scandal through his use of lies (some in writing) and deception. The fact that he has lied to his own Bishop and then later changed his story should be a red flag. Fr Ger spoke the most vile of all lies about me in his conversation with his cousin who spoke with Pat. Pat can testify to the conversation and it is all up on a past blog. The fact that GF would have the audacity to tell such injurious, slanderous lies, and threaten my underage children, should be taken very seriously.
The 17k is another unsolved issue and the fact that I was being threatened yesterday on the blog proves that Gerbots want to create friction between myself and Terry so that I won’t find out anything else about the money. What they fail to realise is that I have already told Terry what was said on the blog. Terry also knows about the misuse of my photos in Fr Ger’s booklet.
What Fr Ger has done to me may not bother some of you, but it has devastated me. I have every right to pursue justice and hold the RCC priest accountable for his grievous actions towards me and my family members.

Like

I do not need your defence or proof of ‘red flag’ about GF that you offered in your reply. I had read enough about him to know he is unsuitable as a priest from the YD blogs and from Bishop Fintan action of removing him from ministry. Ger has obvious problems with relationships, women and lying. All these traits indicate a mental health issue that he needs to deal with and may be unaware of. He led you on, cast you aside and then spoke ill of you to defend himself. He is unworthy of the companionship of any lady and for his behaviour you should understand that you may never receive an apology.
About this 17k, unless you or Terry can prove it’s belonging to another source, you will have no case. You could also accept that GF is a liar, he just has 17k in his account and sponged off you while he pretended to be poor. That would make him a pathetic scrooge. I’m sorry you met such a man. I don’t believe it’s parish money as the funds would be controlled by the main office.
Acceptance of these circumstances would help you move on.

Like

2.53 Is it not obvious by his behaviour that he was unsuitable for priesthood. How he got through formation baffles me. I refer you back to his Ennis parish and YD saga and that’s when I first heard of GF. There is nothing sinister in my reply, just my opinion and yes Fintan is GF’s boss and I have no idea why he won’t contact Bishop Pat but by all means drop him a line and ask him. He was kind to the women and I’m sure he would be kind to you.

@2.59 I wouldnt dispute what was said to Pat and was aired previously was atrocious. You are due an apology for that.

Perhaps Bishop Fintan might consider contacting Bishop Pat with a view towards a resolution of any outstanding difficulties in the best interests of all concerned as well as the wider christian community.

In my opinion, what else could Bishop Fintan do with GF? He took away his parish and ministry. He spoke to the women and believed them. What else should he do or have done?

The problem stems from formation and ‘the powers that be’ need to get it right.

4:09 I am not going to have closure or heal until Fr Ger Fitzgerald admits his wrongdoing and apologies so if he has no intention of doing that, then I guess we are at a stalemate.
I have every right to monitor the blog and comment where I feel it to be necessary. This is supposed to be an inclusive blog and not only for clerics; there is a wide array of people from all over the world, and with different backgrounds, reading and commenting on the blog. The purpose of the blog is to expose corruption in the RCC and to allow the victims to have their say. I realise that some of you do not consider me a victim and that is your business, but Pat DOES recognise that I have been victimised thus he has published my story/narrative/account, or whatever you prefer to call it, on HIS blog.
There are always new bits of information being released here on the blog, some of which is relevant to Fr Ger Fitzgerald and Killaloe Diocese, and that is why I am keeping tabs on what goes on here. I feel no guilt or shame in exposing Fr Ger’s misdeeds on this blog. Others will learn from it and perhaps it will keep some women out there in Limerick or elsewhere who are reading this from being targeted and hurt, the way I was, by the wayward priest.
Until confirmation is given that Fr Ger is completely gone from the Killaloe Diocese/RCC, then he remains a person of interest on the blog. Ideally some of us on the blog would like to have answers to all our unanswered questions right now, but that might not ever happen because Fr Ger is still employed by the RCC and we are being met by a wall of silence on their part. If and when concrete evidence is provided that Fr Ger is out of the RCC permanently, then I will consider other options in my quest for justice and that will be done by me privately. Until that time, I will continue to stand my ground on this blog.
Sincerely,
Karen

I am aware of that information, you knew he was a priest when you met. When he was removed from his parish you sided with him, protected him and believed his lies. He is has lied to you more than once, your relationship with him was a lie and his poverty is probably a lie, everything he told you is a lie. It’s a matter of trust and GF broke a scared rule in any relationship and left you tormented by his lies. It’s hard to believe he preached the Gospel. I hang my head in shame that a priest could be so cruel to another human but here I am. God bless to you this Friday evening.

10.19: As you are well aware, Pat, some gay couples have very destructive, abusive relationships. There is a lot of “playing” around and open relationships in the gay world.

I knew a gay couple who eventually parted after 20 years or more.

Pat at 10:19 the reason you think it’s problematic to have sex with someone you have power over is problematic, is you have the empathy and compassion to see that it is a problem. You also have the understanding to see that it would automatically make any relationship there deeply problematic and abusive.
The reason abusers, including some commenters here, refuse to see that is they lack the empathy to understand it and, most tellingly, think that a huge power imbalance in a relationship is perfectly fine. This lack of understanding and twisted approach will usually stem from childhood.

Perhaps the people who find celibacy hard are not really called by God to be priests as we are only really happy when we know we are doing Gods will. Some men are born asexual and would find celibacy ideal and could share a platonic relationship with another asexual as God sent his disciples out in pairs to teach fellow people about the love of God and to love our neighbour as God loves us. God may have allowed gay people to be born so they could have a loving relationship and it may be gay people that God now wants as priests as they will be able to dedicate their lives 100 per cent to Gods family.
I believe that we should talk more about paefophiles getting counselling amd therarpy about this awful curse instead of condemning and stigmatising them. It is only when we can understand what causes paedophiilia will we be able to stop it. Why The authorities covered this sickness up is impossible to understsnd.

Benedict anderson deserves to get a letter of good standing.

TD won’t resign, simple as that cos he knows its a unsackable position. That said, it would need more and more exposure in the long run to bring him down as that would take some time.

Also I don’t know much about him except for info on him on this blog. Think I have seen his face before somewhere (before he became a Bishop).

Hold your horse cos I didn’t mention priest and bubble boat. I was v v surprised to see that video as that priest didn’t put on his stole. That’s something that I don’t see in my lifetime until now. It demonstrated the mockery of NO mass as it only creates ridicule and laughter of rcc stood for. Think it was on RN YouTube as well.

Remember that I dabbled in new age things, it was TLM who helped me to get rid in faster time frame than the new mass. I didn’t realise that until I started comparing TLM and NO. TLM has more oomph in terms of spiritual warfare than NO. That’s my take but I’m not a fan in some ways such as priest back to ours, mass way top long (usually 1 hr 30ms to 2 hours 30mins), some nutcases or crackpots I saw in TLM but not in NO 🤷‍♀️. But I give lots credit to TLM re my battle with new age. TLM deserves to be continued, not to be dismantled.

Both have pros and cons as we aren’t perfect 🙈.

10.21am. Karen i’m going to ask you a question. I do remember reading what you said some time back that Ger had contacted you and told you that people were putting out vicious rumours about him in Ennis and you felt sorry for him and didn’t think that he could ever lie to you as he was a Priest, or something to that effect so when you found out that was a lie why didn’t you say ” take a hike”. . It was on social media for everybody to see. When you discovered the truth about the fact that he was with YD did that not ring alarm bells for you that he had been dishonest with what he told you.You still made a decision when the truth was revealed to have a friendship with him, doing everything for him to make him happy( your own words) knowing that what he had told you was untrue and you were even willing to take the friendship further into a relationship with him. Unless you take responsibility for your own actions you will never move on. As Dr Phil says ” you can’t change what you don’t acknowledge”. Ger and you are both responsible, not just Ger. You are overplaying the role of the victim just a bit. You have been quite cruel with some of the private messages between ye that were revealed on the blog. Some things revealed werre totally unnecessary and had nothing to do with the matter between you and Ger whatsoever Your allegations with re to the money spoken about also is the pits..

Like

11:40 I was not privy to the social media posts about the Ennis scandal. They were taken down very quickly. All my misinformation about the scandal came from Fr Ger. I have no friends in Ennis so how could I have known the truth?! I stood by him throughout the ordeal because I genuinely believed his lies and his narrative. He could do no wrong in my eyes and that stems from the fact that I was vulnerable and there was an emotional attachment. He had the wool pulled over my eyes and used that to his own advantage.
Overplaying the role of victim a bit? You have no real insight into how devastating an ordeal this has been and continues to be for me apart from what you have read on the blog. The damage/fallout caused by this saga is far worse than any one on the blog can possibly imagine. I cannot change other people’s opinions about me and that’s fine. I’m telling you like it is from my own point of view.
Screenshots of messages were sent to Pat in order to substantiate my claims. Pat chose which ones to publish so if you have an issue with that, pls take it up with him. The allegations regarding the 17k are relevant because the man was always claiming to be broke and the origin of the money is still unclear. If Fr Ger has nothing to hide then why are his minions threatening to tell Terry that he is being discussed on the blog? I explained it before and I’ll repeat: they are trying to create friction between myself and Terry because they don’t want me to know the truth.
I would also like to reiterate that Fr Ger has friends in co. Clare (and perhaps elsewhere?) that have criminal connections and have actually defamed another victim on this blog in a comment that I recently discovered from earlier this year. The woman in question who named herself, not only defamed the other victim, but also made a claim about herself that can easily be proven to be false. These are the kind of people that Fr Ger Fitzgerald surrounds himself with and in my opinion they should also be held accountable for the damage that they have caused to the other victim.
All of the above could have been avoided if the higher ups in the RCC had done their job properly. A Killaloe priest commented last year that three bishops were/are aware of Fr Ger’s “problems” and that it should have been nipped in the bud years ago. “Once again, weakness, mediocrity and inaction have hurt the people.”

I am well aware of how the other victim was treated from some of Gers friends in Co Clare and that’s not one bit acceptable, even if YD did accuse another person wrongly of having an affair with Ger.

He never admitted to me that he had a sexual relationship with the other lady and he never told me that it went on for around six months. He never told me about the blog either; I discovered the blog later on. The other victim had good reason to suspect that GF was having an affair with another woman because she saw a message on Ger’s phone from another woman who Ger claimed was stalking him (sound familiar?). A comment was made on the blog last year from an anonymous person claiming that there was another woman who got dumped by Ger before Valentine’s Day. Unfortunately this source never sent Pat an email so we do not know who it is. What is known is that GF admitted to Pat that he had sexual encounters at Maynooth with laywomen (no pun intended).
