WHY ARE IRISH BISHOPS TOLERATING THEIR PROMISCUOUS PRIESTS SEXUAL ACTIVITIES THAT CONTRAVENE CATHOLIC DOCTRINE AND CANON LAW?

WHY ARE THE IRISH CATHOLIC BISHOPS ALLOWING THEIR PRIESTS – GAY AND STRAIGHT – TO LIVE SEXUALLY IMMORAL AND ORGIASTIC LIFESTYLES?

There has to e reasons for this.

What could those reasons be?

1. Maybe the bishops are atheists, agnostics or pagans?

Maybe these bishops do not believe in the TEN COMMANDMENTS – especially the 6th and 9th that forbid this behaviour? And maybe they do not believe in the traditional Catholic moral theology they ask the rest of us to believe in and practice?

If that is the case they are absolutely UNFIT to be RCC bishops.

2. Maybe the bishops themselves are, or have been “AT IT” themselves and priests know that – resulting in them having no moral authority – as the priests could call their bluff and expose them?

The late Bishop Seamus Freeman

We have the evidence of one former Maynooth seminarian – “JF” – who I have personally met and spoken to – a regular frequenter of the Dublin Boilerhouse, who was sitting in the sauna on night with his ass sticking out. The perpendicular Freeman approached him intending to fill his void. JF spotted him and withdrew the previously available aperture, leaving His Lordship’s sword without a scabbard 😞

FREEMAN

The Blog has information on other Irish bishops – those who, in their time “entertained” Maynooth and other seminary professors abd those who have done and still do travel to foreign lands to have “a rub of the relic”.

SCORING THE IRISH DIOCESES

These problems exist in ALL IRISH DIOCESE.

But the score, in my view, is as follows:

NUMBER ONE – ARMAGH

To my knowledge Armagh is the worst Irish diocese when it comes to the sexual misbehaviour of clergy.

The Armagh misbehaviour is mainly homosexual. Reports suggest that there is the odd Father Peeping Tom?

NUMER TWO – KILLALOE

Killaloe comes number two. Killaloe is a mixture of clerical homosexuality, heterosexuality and bisexuality.

Of course, it has the odd beachcomber onanist.

NUMBER THREE – DOWN AND CONOR

D&C is mainly homosexual.

But it does have Dallat – one of the oldest heteros in captivity.

Noel Treanor is physically in D&C but his ❤️ is elsewhere.

And there are occasional reports from MEATH, CLOGHER, CLOYNE, DUBLIN. DERRY, RAPHOE, GALWAY, KERRY, WATERFORD & L.

Can we do a blog on UK dioceses too in terms of most promiscuous and dysfunctional clergy?

Birmingham must surely be at the top and makes you think about Longley and his leadership – Jolly and Quigley on his watch, Eddie Clare pissed off into the sunset, Gilbert, retired at 60, why? Same private secretary for 13 years – what is that all about?
Elsie – where to begin? Where to end? Dark arts.
Conry: player, three women at once.
Stock: insomniac – supports openly gay newly ordained banging on about his civil union.

Jolly and Quigley and a handful of others, including Bede Walsh, are criminal abusers and have been dealt with by the courts, rightly so. There are others in the woodwork who fit that bill as well, and they will come out of the woodwork in due course. As for Clare and Gilbert, well, they are MIA without any legal / criminal process being initiated, but falling foul of the safeguarding people because of some accusation that has been made, probably a fairly minor discretion. But, they are now toast and will not be back. In common with a clutch of other MIA, they will be supported by Birmingham financially for the foreseeable future.

In answer to the question: “WHY ARE IRISH BISHOPS TOLERATING THEIR PROMISCUOUS PRIESTS SEXUAL ACTIVITIES THAT CONTRAVENE CATHOLIC DOCTRINE AND CANON LAW?”, the fact is that most bishops simply do not have the wiggle room anymore to take action against the majority of their priests who are sexually active in contravention of their promise of celibacy and expectation a chaste life. There simply are not sufficient bodies to replace those who are living a duplicitous life and should be moved out. If they are sexually active – either straight or gay – , as long as it does not breach safeguarding, bishops will not take any action because they would find themselves without manpower. All they can do is put up with it. The only other solution at the moment is for them to import priests from abroad, and if you look at many diocesan directories you can see that is happening in a major way. The Birmingham directory looks like half of priests listed there have foreign names. Mind you, most of the congregations these days are ethnic, too. Bishops choose to turn a blind eye because they know that they would lose so many priests, and manpower / staffing issues would become impossible. Bishops have no option but to put up with their priests’ sexual misbehaviour.

Jesus seems to have been asleep on the job for far too long.
It’s taken a very long time for sex abuse abuse inflicted by Roman Catholic clerics to be acknowledged by the Roman Catholic church, and then only when, its back was against the wall, no thanks to the Roman Catholic church, it’s Popes, or, its Bishop hierarchy.
It was all hush-hush, send him to another parish, if he continues to sexually abuse, send him to another country, foist a sexual abuser on a community that’s less likely to complain.
I am sure we don’t know the half of it yet, and never will.
Roman Catholic Bishop’s world wide are very likely to be still covering up child sex abuse, it certainly seems so in India, if it’s happening there it is also most likely to be happening in other countries.

Pat, you covered similar issues and questions recently. Didn’t you? I would like you to prove definitively your accusations about bishops. We know that moral and spiritual failings are to be found among priests and Bishops. I really believe that the nature and format for priestly living is very idealistic. We are not free of the normal human, psychological needs which are intrinsic to our humanity. Obviously when we make vows, we do so in the hope of living them, as you, Pat, did all those years ago. We soon discover in the living of priesthood, as you did, that there’s no magic “grace” to ward off the natural human needs. What we require is an honest, open and sincere debate about sexuality vis a vis celibacy, about priesthood in the 21st century, a renewed focus on and a new understanding of ministry, particularly in light of all the scandals. While hypocrisy must be called out, I wonder ate we just as afraid to ask the deeper, more searching questions. I have not yet found the “rule of life” to help me live fully the perfection or ideal of priesthood. While I keep THE GOSPEL OF JESUS and his living as my guide, I am comforted by the quote from Saint John Henry Cardinal Newman: “Here below to live is to change and to be perfect is to have changed often.” The perfection Jesus calls us to achieve is one of great difficulty and effort. I know the vast majority of us struggle with these concepts. Yet, despite repeated failures, we must not lose our trust and hope in God’s redeeming mercy and love. There are some who will tell us as priests that we’re undeserving of God’s mercy! Really. We will have to change daily – all of us who profess Jesus, to be perfect as our heavenly Father is!

But by not doing religion they no longer pray or believe and are contemptuous of those who do.
Bishops are like this – many don’t pray or believe in God and are homophiles or active homosexuals.

Some irish bishops are compromised so that some priests in the know could expose them. That piece about Freeman which implies that there are some irish bishops out there doing the same thing and also in Rome as well.

Many months ago I started to see that some bishops were pagan or they dont believe to what their catholicism stood for. For instance, an example of this is kildorrey incident which wasn’t re consecrated up to now as that Bishop doesn’t believe it as regards to supernatural aspect.

Also in some of the irish bishops lifestyle, its a mishmash of being sexually active and also being atheist at the same time or being singular such as sexually active or pagan attitudes.

There was one newly ordained Bishop ordained 3 or 4 years ago, I saw him outside paddy Power bet shop looking more gay than I thought. He looked bit different from public photo profile although I could be wrong there. But I would need to bring a gay man to confirm that is the case if he saw him or not like I did. That’s cos of his gay radar.

Never saw Bishop walking or seen in public for instance, shopping etc or in a church where its open for prayer cos I never saw one except in Rome many years ago.

Bishops are just a public face or masquerading as a front of which doesn’t match their interior side of it. It’s a deceptive organisation and also misleading to the public as well. That isn’t right as the Vatican knows it. They have brought it on to themselves cos they had appointed them. Have no sympathy for them.

Bishops are more seen as finance managers nothing more or less, much less as religious. Thus their mindset is on money.

That brought home to me when I objected to my ex PP new top of the range car out of parish funds. That isn’t compatabile with their Catholuc lifestyle. That’s in 1980s and 1990s.

In response to this blog, my mind turned to the normality of bishops and priests. They all have a sexual drive; they all have times when they feel a need to express their sexual desire. To many women (and men) the role of priest holds a certain fascination that is captured when sex with a priest becomes a possibility. Celibacy is the problem and the revelations of this blog tell us loundly that so many bishops and priests find it an impossible demand. Do away with celibacy and you do away with the ‘problem’ articulated by today’s blog.

Like

Celibacy going by Jesus calling his apostles and saying leave your families and come follow me signifies that they were to give up the sexual aspect of their lives and give 100 per cent to saving souls by the teaching and living what it is to have Gods love. Fran Brennan and Ronan Mullen say they are devout catholics and by that since they are not married and not ‘living in sin ‘ must be celibate and it would be interesting if they could tell us how they find celibate living. Also it would be good for our understanding of RCC rules if bishops gave interviews about their sexuality and how they cope with celibacy.

10.00am: I think your argument is facile. Do away with celibacy and the “problem” is fixed!! Wish life was as easy as this. Celibacy as a requirement needs to be reviewed urgently. A married priesthood has great merit but we then will have the challenge of a decent salary for the support of a couple and family and the difficulty of placement of such in various parishes. Married clergy in other denominations hasn’t sorted out all the human, sexual challenges. The option for marriage should be there for those who feel called to ministry. Wherever we have human beings with intrinsically deep psychological and sexual needs, there will always be a desire for intimacy of some kind. The ideal perfection is to have within our DNA the deepest of strength to be celibate, which many do achieve, but let’s not pretend it’s as easy as an ABC formula…”..do this and you’ll be fine…” Prayer is essential for all priests to remain in relationship with the God whose ways we seek to live as exemplified by Jesus. In the narrative of some commenters, there’s no room for failure, sin or moral transgressions in the life of a priest. I know many very humanly good priests, well adjusted and sound but who are also deeply prayerful and seek only what is best. I admire them but all of us, if we’re truthful, struggle with our humanity and therefore with the spiritual idealism put before us. God does allow for new beginnings however often we fail. We need to embrace God’s mind and heart in our assessment of others.

Paul urges us to pray constantly. According to Vassula Ryden, Jesus says that constant prayer doesn’t mean being on your knees all day (I should think not, ffs), but on simply remembering God’s presence. Jesus said (well, according to Vassula) if we did, we all would sin less.

Are either of these things even desirable, let alone possible. Isn’t Jesus asking us to multi-task? You know, being in the world, but not of it? That sort of utopian shite? Men are said to be far more inept at multitasking than women. Said by whom? I haven’t a bloody clue.

Would all these major scandals in the Church just disappear if we prayed more (provided we could cope with the mind-numbing boredom of praying to an abstract God)?

The papal Nuncio said Bishops can become weak but Glasgow has a strong man and he knows what he wants.
Well the Cathedral was not packed and 2/3 of the clergy were missing so role on the next 6.5 years then his replacement.
he is the metropolitian and yet Betty Turpin was away on a march at least Bishop Toal was there could hardly walk drawing his leg and can hardly see.
Let Glasgow Flourish is the motto well the Daisy Chain certainly is.

Nolan is like the captain on that (Irish) ship what sunk quick! He’s rearranged some deckchairs this week but it’s all delaying the inevitable – he’s a decent spud but up against it with a deflated clergy, pissed-off laity and surrounded by the daisies who will defo be a chain around his neck – until + Pat outs them all (given that the wicked witch of the west has been emasculated and afraid to do so) how did it get this bad ? 🙈🤷🏾‍♂️

Ah well you never know with the clergy which way they swing!!
He’s keeping his head down because salary and pension provision and maybe won’t have to reinvent himself for a while – the military background explains the high control, officious and inflated sense of his clerical dignity – which will not be helped by being a Monsignor!!

The training of priests and the idea, not of a university but of a seminary is an anachronism stretching all the way back to the Council of Trent and basically untouched in its broad strokes since then.
Today because of rampant homosexuality and repressed unhealthy sexuality seminaries are deeply unhealthy and troubled institutions attracting the dysfunctional and unhinged. Men completely unsuited and for whom the priesthood is their only option. Most would be lower tier workers – waiters,coach drivers, bank clerks and so on.
The seminary project is over they are just not courageous enough to admit it and so the delusion continues.

The Jesuits do a better job, I think. Serious and focussed. They attract a sane and settled kind of candidate – well, perhaps with the exception of Father Underpants, and they were quick to move him on when they realised. Maybe the bishops should be asking the SJs how they get it right ?

Good analysis 4:12pm of the seminary system. The Church continues to insist on celibacy but it isn’t possible for the vast majority of men. The Church is basically denying to those who join, the most fundamental and basic aspect of humanity……the need for intimacy. It immediately fails when this is denied to men joining the priesthood.

4.12: A very untrue assessment. You know it is dishonest to make the claim you make about priests. All 12 in my ordination year received 3rd level university degrees: arts: politics: accountancy: languages: history etc…along with degrees in theology and philosophy and sociology. Those who left had no difficulty in finding very gainful, fruitful employment, some of them becoming very highly paid company directors. Many former priests I met in parishes were all full time professional men. Your comments are ignorant. Apart from myself, 3 of my class colleagues were trained teachers…I trust you’ve not been well educated to make this trashy type of comment!! Only lower tier types make these crap comments. Are you a loo cleaner or street cleaner??

Fr Jan now there’s an interesting name – what’s his story to tell? V close to John Gilbert but one presumes with his unceremonious exit from the priesthood not so much now.
A doctorate my arse – who did he please to get that academic accolade cuz he ain’t that smart and why is he down in London and what sauna does he frequent and with who?
Yes a short tempered little mammys boy and his sojourn in Rome coaxed out his inner Sebastion if you know what I mean.
Bawled out the Rector eh – whatever for?
What did the poor Rector do?
He’s such a gossip bitch though – my God when he gets on a tirade you can’t shut him up.

The doctorate is from The Angelicum – no doubt from the English section which they have so that Yanks can come over to Rome and study without the hassle of having to learn Italian ! The job down in London with the CBCEW is a nothing job, a sinecure, joining a whole lot of other desk wallahs who fancy being down in London for their own reasons and pleasures. He’s deffo a gay boy, like so many clergy in Birmingham, and there’s a lot going on behind the scenes in his life, I am certain. My gaydar is active and twitching and it’s picking up signals from his direction. And, it’s never wrong ! He’s probably a friend of Canon Chris Thomas, the Gen Sec, who is an inveterate gossip , and one of those clerics who likes to swan around in his equestrian order stuff and head off to Jerusalem on trips.

I am struck how difficult it is to cope with the decline of church going.
Here’s a thought (which the faithful won’t like): church going was at an unusually high level in the twentieth century, driven partly by the questioning caused by wars.
Without this unusual peak followed by a decline of interest in religion in the west with an accompanying decline of ‘social’ church attendance, the churches wouldn’t be having a decline.
Why does it bother some people so much? Could it possibly be the decline of importance, power and revenue? If it is you are the problem and fully deserve to decline.

Classic clerical reaction and oh so sensitive on the nerve of seminary calibre – you trust is misplaced my education to tertiary and graduate level more than suffices – in the round the quality of seminarian and ordained clergy is low tier – teachers, waiters, lorry drivers, bank clerks – your reaction is class sensitive and typical of the priestly caste you adhere to believing yourselves of a class alongside the landowner, doctor as of old in rural Ireland.
So passé darling.
