THE RESURRECTION BY STEALTH, OF SAINT JOE MC GUIGAN !

JOE MC GUIGAN WHO LEFT THE PRIESTHOOD IN BELFAST IN 2003 AND AFTER A GAY SCANDAL AND RUMOURS OF THE HURT OR DEATH OF A YOUNG HOMELESS MAN AFTER THE PRIEST DEMANDED SEX FROM HIM – WAS SPOTTED YESTERDAY MORNING IN CLERICAL DRESS IN BELFAST!

SAINT TERESAS BELFAST.

FROM SATURDAY 6 th September 2014

DID A YOUNG MAN IN BELFAST LOSE HIS LIFE TO THE CATHOLIC CHURCH?

DID A YOUNG MAN IN BELFAST LOSE HIS LIFE TO THE CATHOLIC CHURCH?


——————-

IF THE STORY BELOW IS INACCURATE I INVITE ANYONE WHO KNOWS THAT – OR ANYONE INVOLVED OR MENTIONED IN THE STORY TO LET ME KNOW IMMEDIATELY.

I WILL CORRECT ANY INACCURCIES AND APOLOGISE.

IF ANYONE HAS ANY OTHER EVIDENCE I WOULD BE HAPPY TO RECEIVE IT.

——————–
Father Joe McGuigan

The story is this and many people in the Lower Falls and beyond KNOW this story! McGuigan had left the priesthood at the time having, as Bishop Pat says, successfully portrayed himself as a ‘victim’ – quite an incredible feat in itself (Don’t Go Fr Joe, candlelight vigils and all, with good people like Loney Granny having been sucked in by the whole charade of Joe McGuigan as the ‘Mother Teresa’ of the Lower Falls).
Monsignor Tom Toner

A young homeless man went to the now ex-priest McGuigan desperate for accommodation. McGuigan, now being employed in charge of the St Peters homeless centre, told the lad ‘if you don’t have sex with me, I will see to it that you never get a flat anywhere in Belfast. 

The young man agreed to sleep with him. Later, feeling bad, he went to the police who advised if he pursued it would go public. The young man didn’t want his parents and girlfriend to find out. He took his own life. He left a suicide note. 

FATHER HUGH KENNEDY

THE DD – DISAPPEARED DEAN

That note was shown to Hugh Kennedy who turned on his heel and walked away after reading it. 

McGuigan, an unscrupulous sex pest + a vulnerable, desperate young man = tragedy!

There is also the question of finances and McGuigan blaming it all on a local woman.

McGuigan was ‘quietly let go. He is now a ‘Pizza boy’ somewhere up the Road. The whole episode of his ‘coming out’ was paid for by the bishop to a very expensive PR company here in the North – a fortune was paid to ‘manage’ Joe’s shock-horror ‘I’m gay!’ announcement as if we didn’t already know all about his fun and games”.

PAT SAYS:

I kinda laughed recently when someone mentioned that the diocese of D&C was going rehabilitate JOE MC GUIGAN.

He is 19 years out of ministry and is now 54.

He disappeared after he published a photo of himself and others at A LEATHER AND LUBE NIGHT in Dublin by a NI gay group called MEN OF THE NORTH.

As a curate in St Peter’s Cathedral he had specialised in being the cathedral’s flower arranger and in cooking Duck a la Orange for famished clergymen.

He had adopted two senior altar boys and was treating them to tailored kilts in Glasgow and designer clothing in the very expensive Browne Thomas store on Dublin’s Grafton Street.

The above story of the young man began to circulate.

Another story was that he got a job in the homeless centre after he left the cathedral and was found In flagrante delicto with a young man by the homeless centre supervisor.

SUITABLE FOR MINISTRY?

Joe left in 2003 – 19 years ago. He was a regular on the GRINDR up until at least 4 years ago and a regular on the gay scene.

He left over being involved at the extreme end of gay activity.

He misbehaved with at least one young homeless man.

There were financial questions.

WHY, AFTER ALL THIS TIME CAN HE BE REGARDED AS SUITABLE FOR MINISTRY?

What is going on in Down and Connor?

What is Noel Treanor thinking?

Will we soon see FATHER BRENDAN SMYTH dug up from the grave and being placed in an alcove in a cathedral dressed in a golden cope and being pronounced patron saint of irish Catholic Primary Schools?

SMYTH

Can the RCC get any more outrageous or perversely absurd than it is already?

Is that Paddy Mc Caff as the priest beside him ?

If the RCC has to resort to resurrecting total creeps like Joe McGuigan to active ministry to keep the show on the road, then it demonstrates that it’s in the last through of death, desperately gasping as the inevitable approaches.
What I fail to understand is how McGuigan managed to go 19 years without being removed from the clerical state. English dioceses used Pope Benedict’s fast-track administrative procedure to get priests like McGuigan off their books. So, therefore, if any misconduct comes to light in those unsupervised 19 years in which he was still a priest, I am sure the church will have no problem digging deep to compensate potential victims.
The diocese needs to reconsider its approach immediately. I hope the press picks this up.

Police to take responsibility for publishing whereabouts of missing clergy in light of ongoing cover up by Roman Catholic Churchsays:

So A priest moved to the side out of public view Nineteen years ago due to connections to death of a homeless man who was sexually abused by priest when he sought shelter and later committed suicide & left a note, same priest also connected to Financial irregularities clearly retained his close connections and had an ongoing friendship with RC hierarchy whilst he continued his gay dating app activities on Grindr etc & has now been reinstated. All the more reason why the provision of updated published information is essential & if RC keep refusing to provide it, police authorities must do it in interests of public safety. The current situation represents an ongoing danger to the public safety of all particularly children and vulnerable adults.

Like

I do see what you’re getting at but this isn’t a police matter as it stands. Unless they are reported missing as such, a private citizen has a perfect right to vanish off the radar, so what is needed is legally to stop priests being private citizens.

Jurisdictions could consider changing the law so that ministers of religion and all paid and voluntary workers have to be registered which would then provide a handle on where they are. This wouldn’t be that different from the way health professionals are registered for the protection of the public.

If there is the slightest suspicion (such as there is about the priests who appear here) they could be tagged so their whereabouts be known.

I also think states should forensically audit the church’s books – current accounting for charities is too vague and would leave out assets like the disastrous London property investment.

Like

First, I am opposed to a state register of priests akin to doctors, solicitors and accountants, as it only makes sense if they are independently regulated with the power to strike off. Secondly, priests are not professionals and never will be. The state must never recognise them as anything other than private citizens.

Keepers is ostensibly about child abuse and two intrepid but persistent parishioners to uncover the truth of the murder of their teacher a religous sister.
The murder of Sr Pahl involved a Satanic Ritual by Fr Greald Robinson who stabbed her 32 times in the shape of an inverted cross and penetrated her with a crucifix.
The murder was covered up for 20 years by the Toledo diocese – Robinson was jailed for 15 years and died in prison.
Both stories reveal that the Catholic Church is capable of murder, satanic ritual and high level crime.

Canon Unctuous,
I’m sure anyone who has already experienced what you have appreciates your apology but also knows that you have been the victim of a confidence trick.
This takes the form of the church saying that it is the holy, divinely appointed means of grace, which is the front the punter believes and buys. It conditions you to discount the relentless international criminality which goes on behind the front. And the poor victim discounts the reality because the con has conditioned them.
Coming at it cold, you would think the holocaust of innocent children would be enough to make the reasonable man see the church for what it is, and unfortunately most people only realize at a particular point, like you have, where the front is shattered.
You will probably be feeling guilty and betrayed, but the trick is not to forget your realization and let it inform what you now think.
Because from here you will be seeing things quite differently and seeing more problems which you previously discounted.
This is what it’s like when you realize what the cult has done to you, and the reason its damage of lives is never ending and it is so dangerous.

7:37. You won’t apologise. That’s ok I’ll let you persist with your wilful ignorance. Did you try to belittle or challenge the person that said it was Gabriel Lyons? Would you make the same remark that his name was only mentioned to stir up trouble for him?

And it makes me wonder – why you are so insistent on my tying to stir up trouble. Is it that you know something about this priest that might not be wholesome? Could you be that priest.

Either way, you are clearly intent on finding offence when non was given or intended.

And for the record – I do not know Fr Brendan at all and bear him no I’ll will.
I’ll say it again – readers were speculating who the celebrant might have been – I offered a suggestion – which one reader was able to tell me, respectfully that he’d since retired. Debate and speculation over.

You do not know him at all- and yet you had no problem putting his name out in public on this blog- idle speculation. I repeat- you are a troublemaker.

Just to be clear – I do not know Father Brendan at all. I do not bear him any ill will. I was merely responding to speculation as to who the celebrant might have been. There was no offence intended.
The blog is about wether Joe McGuigan is returning to ministry as a Catholic priest? So on reflection, idle speculation about who the main celebrant might’ve been doesn’t add anything to the debate.

When you asked your provocative “digging for dirt” question about Canon Beagon you knew fine rightly that he was long retired. Disgraceful.

Totally agree. The celebrant is not the big issue. It is all speculation as to who has been photographed with a priest’s collar. Anonnymous is really the buffoon. Not you!

It it very concerning to note what Bishops allow their members to get away with Scot free but instead focus all their efforts on silencing the victims.

Oh darling you don’t need to be intimate or close to assess poor dental hygiene and the sulphuric waft and whiff of halitosis – they say don’t they that sufferers are oblivious rather like you!!
