IS ROBERT NUGENT GUILTY OF HOMOPHOBIA IN THIS VIDEO?

Nowadays I only look at Robert Nugent’s videos if someone alerts me about them.

A relatively young gay and partnered teacher alerted me the other day to the video above.

This was the alert I received.

My informant is quoting a line from the video:

“Just don’t stick things where they don’t belong”.

I think without intending to, Robert, has given us an insight into his real thinking and latent homophobia.

He begins by saying that he is not homophobic and that he gas gay friends and then gets really homophobic.

It’s like the N. Ireland prods saying” I have friends who are Catholic”.

He is saying:

Don’t stick your penis into another man’s anus”.

He goes on to equate gay men to farmyard animals – lambs that turn into dangerous rams.

He says that that gay men interfere with nature and nature pays them back –

– with STI’s, HIV, AIDS, Monkeypox etc.

And implies that on top of that that these human farm yard animals are also going to Hell.

Ot seems to me that Robert is trying jard to be very CATHOLIC but has no interest in being a CHRISTIAN.

And by Catholic he means that we should be feeding every child in Ireland the Catholic Catechism for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

And that all Irish Catholics should be attending only Latin Masses and receiving Communion kneeling and with their tongue stuck out.

It makes me wonder if Robert himself is either a repressed homosexual or bisexual – and maybe secretly desires a penis inside his own anus?

“Me think the man protesteth too much”.

There are Catholic men like that out there you know.

And his completely ignores the well established fact that man straight married and unmarried couples practice anal sex as part of their sex life.

OVERHEARD FROM ROOM 220 IN A MAYO HOTEL:

Mary: “Paddy will you be my ram tonight”?

Paddy: “I will Mary, will you be my yew”.

Afterwords ……both fall asleep to Daniel O Donnell singing:

“There’ll never be another yew”

AND

Eamon, you keep a quare few “B’s” yourself 😀

He talks nonsense – slavery goes back to 3500 BC. Should we not go against nature and accept it as our ancestors did?

Too much of anything is bad for a person, Robert seems to be obsessed and addicted to the Catholic Church in a very unhealthy way. And in a rigid way, Latin Mass is superior, communion is best received kneeling down and on the tongue. He seems like a nice guy but it can’t be healthy thinking so much about the Catholic Church that he can put out a video every day about it. Fanaticism is not really healthy for the mind or the souls. And regards homophobia, it doesn’t do him any favours comparing gay people to farm animals, its really offensive

I have watched many of Robert’s videos on you tube. At first I thought he was spiritually and theologically good and interesting. The more I watched, the more I cringed. In his world there is only black or white, no shades in between. There is no room for sexual embrace or expression except in a pure and committed relationship. There is no mass to save us but the Latin Mass. The only way to receive Holy Communion is with a pure heart and clean tongue. Richard has sfooted the most strident, extremist form of preaching to evangelize. His LGBTQI radar is a violence against hundreds. Some of his videos of Transmen and Transwomen flspping up and down American Churches proclaiming their presence to children, scantily clad is a total charade and an abuse of those children… He is right to question this behaviour. Robert has done s a series on Whos Who among the electoral college to elect a new pope. He frequently showsnvidrosbofntje Spanish/French Camino he’s completed with his son. Pilgtimaged to Knock, Lourdes, Fatima and to Medujorge are essential journeys for devout Christians. Lough Derg and Croagh Pattrick the penultimate PILGRIMAGES. Robert is zealous all the way through, his little son and daughter seen in some discomfort in blazing hot sun..It’s the certainty of his teachings that will ruin him and a potentiality good group of openimded men centred on Jesus alone..In Robert’s woorld view we are on the road to perdition..

I recall the last time Nugent featured on the blog. A Protestant contributor called him out over something, and Nugent was not polite about it. Certainly not Christian. Most of all, he did not answer the contributor. There was a petulance and irrascibility in his manner. Nugent does not tolerate criticism well.
As for going against nature, if you take sick and need surgery, this, too, is going against nature. So, are there any adverse consequences? I had appendicitus when I was five; this was nature at work. Had I not had the required surgery, I would have died. Taking sick is part of our nature. Should we, then, just let nature take its course and not allow ourselves to prevent it?
Homosexuality is part of nature, too. It is commonplace in the animal kingdom among, for example, dogs, lions, zebras, horses, even swans. Robert might call this disordered nature, but whatever you choose to call it, it IS nature.
As for having a chummy chat with a ghostly nun on a mountainside only to be joined by God Almighty himself … Sweet …..! This man is off his rocker.

Robert, gay sex is a mystical experience, perhaps you know that, perhaps you don’t. I presume most heterosexuals have experienced the mystical in their sex lives at some point or many. One of the big questions in science at this time is what you refer to as ‘free will.’ There is the theory that there is nothing free about our will whatsoever….it will be explored for the next few decades and more.

I’m not a medical expert but I think it’s generally accepted that consensual sexual activity between adults is normal and HEALTHY.
I would imagine that the best way of experiencing sex is within a monogamous relationship and there are profound biological, sociological, anthropological etc reasons why society would prioritise monogamous heterosexual relationships. Having said that we should be teaching, our young adults in particular, that while monogamy is a good thing, it’s possible to enjoy good sex with multiple partners – just be safe, use contraception, respect your sexual partner and above all enjoy it.

I’d really like to have a chat with just one of Robert’s ‘very dear friends’ and ask them what they feel and think about his views. Is it possible to have ‘very dear friends’ who think that your lifestyle is an abomination? Ok, he doesn’t use that word but he might as well have.
On many of his videos he piously says “I don’t want to judge” ( he’s so good 🙄) before judging left, right and centre. Don’t apologise, Robert for judging. It’s ok. We all do it. Just be prepared to be challenged on those judgements.

Yes, I agree with you. As a gay man in a 33 year long relationship, I have people in my life (and I’m thinking of one ardent Catholic with links to the hierarchy but there are others) who count themselves close friends but despite their own lives not being in conformity with Church teaching on marriage, would say my husband and I are going to Hell on the basis of what they believe we are or are not getting up to in the bedroom. After 33 years, the answer is a cup of tea before a book and lights out. Honestly their presumption is amazing. Such people may count themselves friends, and for the sake of a quiet life, I tolerate them, try to be kind and helpful, listen to their problems and offer what support I can. But do I count them a friend? I’m afraid the relationship goes to a certain point but there can never be any trust or confidence on my part and I think constantly of Pharisees, talking about and enforcing “the Law” but without an ounce of compassion or willingness to journey with people on their lives as they are. Some Christians, I’m afraid, consider themselves terribly supportive and claim they are tolerant and non-judgemental. They are the worst as they are often patronising, false and think you’re too thick to realise what they are really like.
We all judge others, no matter how hard on occasion we try not to. Ultimately, God made me, He’s the only one who fully knows me, and He is the only one whose judgement of my life counts. I’ll wait and see what He says on judgement day after I’ve lived my life as best as I can. I suspect He will be infinitely more loving, understanding and compassionate than the vast majority of those He created … including myself. I doubt He will have kept a register of my life and actions referenced against the Catechism and some of the nonsense there. And before I’m denounced, or told to become an Anglican, it’s my choice, my conscience and frankly my right to be “wrong”.

Pat, just curious to know if you spoke with RN recently? I may have drawn your attention some time back to his videos but undoubtedly you’ve seen some of them. They are developing into his battle to save the Catholic Church from damnation, his rage vented against all modern liturgical renewal and changes. In this respect he has some worthwhile and truthful observations to make. He frequently makes judgments about Bishops and priests, mostly on their moral, pastoral and spiritual failings. Again, some of his criticisms are legitimate. Without realising it, Robert, while asserting the doctrines of the “faith” makes homophobic statements, is intolerant of anyone and anything that doesnt resonate with his views, asserts aggressively his rightness on all issues. The notion that you’ll get your message across better by screaming into a screen is very off putting. During last Holy Thursday, Robert went to the cathedral in Ballina to secretly film the Mass of the Lord’s Supper. He then used footage on his You Tube to mock, sneer at, condemn, ridicule and judge the entire Mass as a shambles. That sneaking into a cathedral for this purpose alone was deceitful, cunning and dishonourable. Ever since, I take him with a grain of salt. It amazes me the long hours daily he sits at his camera!! All apoplectic with rage, rarely praise, unless you’re a fan of TLM.

The cultists’ dream of reproducing until there is standing room only, in addition to being guaranteed to cause famine and death, is likely to increase homosexuality and infertility. If they’d been listening at school they would have found that nature has negative and positive feedback loops, and is always aiming towards homeostasis. As the comment above points out homosexuality is frequently found in nature (despite the cult’s pretend natural law) so increasing the population beyond its current unsustainable levels is also guaranteed to push the world into trying to prevent further reproduction. Famines, obviously, but I would put money on nature turning very very gay indeed.

Some years ago, I had to undergo a rigid sigmoidoscopy. An investigation for cancer or polypops, I believe, in that area of the bowel. Now I know that a sigmoidoscooy isn’t anal intercourse, but bear with me.
I was opened up and, first, one camera, and, then, another were inserted you-know-where. Not painful at all; no, absolutely not. But uncomfortable? You bet. (And how!😨)
At those moments (no accounting for such thoughts at such times, I’m afraid), my mind turned to … anal sex of all things. I kid you not a bit. Lock and load! I wondered: how the hell can gay men tolerate this?! This kind of bodily invasion?!
During the procedure, a nurse patted my head, and smilingly assured me: ‘You’re doing very well.’ And afterwards, the Registrar, highly impressed, congratulated me: ‘I can’t believe how well you tolerated that!’ What neither of them knew … I was screaming inside, mostly the holy name: ‘Jesus!’ ‘JESUS!’

Interesting video. The vast majority of the people who participated in the synod process were not only practicing catholics but even went the further step of getting involved in the process and yet most of them seem to have come to the conclusion that they disagree with fundamental aspects of the teachings of the catholic church. Like mcalleese an other liberal lefty types I wonder what the hell are they doing in the catholic church. It’s like me saying I’m an Arsenal fan but I really hate Arsenal and am in reality a Man Utd fan. I suppose there’s a quality in Irish people that like saying what they believe people expect them to say and they stay stum on what they really believe. Theres also political types who would have hijacked this process an skewed it. It’s like the head cases who go to summer schools in Donegal.

Irrespective, I admire the true sacrificial love between a committed couple, whatever their relationship is.

I’m certainly not like that tax collector! I fast twice a week, and I give you a tenth of my income.’
“But the tax collector stood at a distance and dared not even lift his eyes to heaven as he prayed. Instead, he beat his chest in sorrow, saying, ‘O God, be merciful to me, for I am a sinner.’ I tell you, this sinner, not the Pharisee, returned home justified before God. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”

8.35pm. Karen i don’t know either you or Fr Ger Fitzgerald so i am not on anybodys side, but i do think that you have made a foolish mistake revealing something that is so very personal and private, and if anything you have given away your power 100% by making it so public on the blog

8.53 With all due respect, it does not matter what you or anyone else thinks about my revelation; your opinion does not determine my self worth.
Free at last, free at last. Thank God almighty, I am free at last.

8.19pm. You haven’t taken back your power Karen, you have actually done quite the opposite and have given it all away…the very fact that you had to make this public proves that, and Pat shouldn’t have allowed it to be made public even if you gave him permission. I’m not judging your decision but the whole world doesn’t need to know it and i actually feel sad for you.

9.28 I will not remain complacent while that pathetic priest and his pals try to emotionally blackmail me into keeping quiet on the blog. Don’t feel sad for me. I am at peace with myself! The Lion of Judah will protect me from the haters 🇮🇱

10.10 I appreciate your wise and compassionate words Pat, but I am well used to the harsh critics here. Doesn’t phase me anymore.

I have met many women who have had abortions.

An abortion is a tragedy for the baby and the woman.

God forgives everything we ask him too.

Let’s not be hard on Karen. But for the grace of God go I.

Karen and Pat I made a comment last night to Karen – why wasnt same printed I wonder. It hurts you both when the truth is told. Whats the point making a comment on this blog if its not published. There was nothing in same that should prevent it from appearing. Lucky for me I have taken a screen shot of same. You probably will not print this comment either – but who cares!!!!!!!

Let’s not forget that Karen is a victim of Gers.
She may have done wrong.
But this blog does not go hard on victims or part victims
Now take a screenshot of this too and put them both where the monkey 🐒 put his nuts 😀

11.01 If you have a message for me, be a brave man/woman and send it to my email. Until then, take Pat’s advice!

9.28am. I understand that, but at the same time you are passing by Gers house when coming from the Gym and wondering where he is when his car isn’t there. I don’t get that. Why would you even care where he is if he has been such a b#####d, so in actual fact you have not taken back your power as much as you like to think that you have… I’m not saying that the comment was acceptable that was made to Pat about the abortion , but you most certainly lost your power publising it. Everyday, no matter what subject is being discussed on the blog, you manage to bring Ger into it. , which tells me that you are far from being at peace with yourself. If it was me i would never ever want to set eyes on him again.

. 10.10am . It’s double standards with you Pat and thats for sure. Karen is still checking up on Ger Fitzgerald. Victim my arse .

Karen goes to a gym that requires her passing Gers house.

Would you have her forfeit her gym?

Abuse enabler!

11.25am. But why does she need to make a comment on the blog that his car was not there and then made presumtions that he was with Jerry Carey in Tipp. Far from the truth, but why did it bother Karen so much where he was. If somebody wronged me i wouldn’t give a damn where they were and as i have said in a previous message to you…..it’s double standards with you. God forgives everyone for their sins, , not just karen.

11.44 I made an observation about Fr Ger’s car not being in front of his house (I was on my way home from the gym) in response to someone’s claim that Fr Ger was in Tipperary. I seem to remember that Canon Todd also made a similar comment about Ger not being at home and no one called him out for it.

Like

You can’t see the wood from the trees Pat. It’s all a bit much, the mental health the abortion and they’re is little evidence that Ger Fitz has an army formed against her. I appreciate you get the odd message but come on, I don’t believe that the Bishop of Killaloe is out to silence the woman. It’s all a bit far fetched Pat, please get a grip on this story.

Like

11.51 I never said the Bishop of Killaloe was out to get me. Fr Ger & his friends in Ennis are…I have further evidence in regards to the unpublished msg sent to Pat a few days ago (which Pat knows about), but I shall not disclose anymore about that matter right now.

Like

The ”odd message” was a comment to pat about highly confidential medical history relayed to a man of the cloth and passed on by him. It is very serious indeed.

12:23pm how would Canon Todd know that Ger’s car wasnt outside his house – sure he’s not from Castleconnell, he told us he left it a long time ago. Can you answer that Karen I wonder???

I left Castleconnell. I dont live there. But I did visit recently and there was no car outside GFs house.

One message……….the blog didn’t need to hear about her abortion. Drama drama drama. I am no fan of Ger he’s despicable but Karen’s behaviour is appalling at least.

You have insinuated plenty about the Bishop of Killaloe and his cohorts are out to get you and you harass him on this blog constantly, don’t change your narrative now because it doesn’t suit. comments are in black and white Karen.

Karen – oh I mean Todd @ 4.48pm, you were very quick to reply to Karen’s comment @ 4.40. What puzzles me though is how ironic it is that you just happened to be in the area of Fr. Ger’s house the same day as Karen, and noticed no car. Can you explain this to the blog? This plot is thickening and the net is closing in….

8.21 No, we were not in Castleconnell on the same day. The net is closing in? What a load of shite.

Quaking in my boos here. Lol. Karen and I have never met and only communicate through this blog. But keeping following that line of enquiry; suits me fine:-)
