What I found strange was that if what is reported is true he didn't stray too far from the official church line ? It isn't as if he advocated gay marriage, birth control, abortion or liberation theology .....
Yeah but as usual the church gos into overload when anybody says anything slight off with their teachings!!!

From what I can tell

He recalled church teaching says it is not wrong to be gay, ‘‘but it is wrong to act gay”. So far in line with Catholicism.

His articles then appear to endorsing the acting out bit. Not in line with Catholicism or being a Catholic priest.

Seems like a pretty level-headed guy that priest. The question is, of course, if he's all that smart, what is he doing in an outfit like the kiddy-fiddler church?:lol::lol::lol:

Yes, and he expressed the situation very clearly. “Imagine someone saying... ‘There’s nothing in itself wrong with being Irish... But that doesn’t mean you may act on it. So, no more Guinness, going to Croke Park, singing rebel songs into the early hours of the morning, waving Tricolours, no more craic'

Well, you have to wonder why can't he imagine that? He's an odd man.

I don't drink myself, and I'm all for the promotion of a sober style of life, and total abstinence from alcohol.

He's also making the assumption that you can’t be Irish unless you drink Guinness, go to Croke Park, sing rebel songs etc.

Do you believe he was the son of god and that he lived, died and was raised from the dead for the redemption of our sins and in order to win eternal life for those who accept him as saviour?
I do but it took me a very long time to realise that while the church annoys me in the way that it teaches ,the fundamentals are solid.
The idea is to lead us into a higher level of existence,where death no longer is a problem.Where we will be trusted with the power which God gave us in the beginning.
The priest is correct when he says that homosexuality is a feature of humanity,in the same way that prostitution,pornography,theft, lying is .
It is just that the homosexual is more cunning,for they are often Aquarians[Feb/March,End of November/early dec.,and also have scorpio ascendants.
So too do their supporters.
Aquarians are among the most 'clever 'people in the zodiac,but if scorpio is there too they become corrupt,for they think they stand outside the laws which guide us .

Poor priest,he has been bitten by the serpent which rules the sign of scorpio
[17th of November/15th dec.More powerfully dangerous in the early part.]
Without the connection to God [which is represented in the chart too]
this pulls people down to do all sorts of things,and finally into hell.
People who believe in God should remember that we are asked to help people avoid 'sin',not encourage them in their delusions.
The priest as we all have been have been, was subjected to a long and hard
campaign to make out that they are victims ,but they are the opposite.
The serpent always tries to undermine us with endless lies,but their ignorance of the higher truths will finally be their undoing.
In all actively 'gay' charts all the benefits like the moon,venus,jupiter neptune,are corrupted.
The purpose is to wear down resistence to their propaganda.

Better that they get down on their knees ,but that takes a little faith,even just a little.
Scorpio /8th house is also the sign of death].

Yes the material crisis first ,now the spiritual one is due.

i wasn't aware that born again Christains like yourself were very tolerant of homosexual activity either. Typical bible Protestant behavour to join anybody if it means kicking the RC Church or the Pople.

The priest should have known better. If he wants to join a more homosexual friendly church there is always the Church of Ireland.

Based on your extensive knowledge and going by my posts, what sign would you say I am?

Maybe he wants to stay and help the RCC to be more enlightened rather than just cutting and running.

I stopped being tolerant when I saw that they did not want freedom to be themselves ,but were insisting that we all put their activity,being ,wahtever on the same level as heterosexuality.
Not that to be hetero . in itself is good ,but the action of being so is the fundamental condition of life,of giving life ,and this means much more than just babies.
Male /female is a polar energy which gives life and energy to the universe.
We are only meant to be intimate sexually with our polar opposite.
Narcissism is a dead end in every way.
One of the greatest problems for humanity is the ignorance of the bigger picture of existence,and the laws that guide us .
My beef with the church is that instead of helping folks to ,understand these,they 'force' folks to obey,instead of more discussion ,more teaching ,less law.
And their greatest weakness now is their lack of teaching of reincarnation. How can they explain a god who makes people have such different 'fates' without giving them more chances.
We have had many lifetimes,since Jesus came to get it right,but the
end of the 2000 years ,in which the cycle ends is very near .
In some ways because of this the church has caused some to 'sin' for they know that there is something wrong ,missing ,but do not know what ,and they rebel.
Outside a spiritual guidance ,people can stray,do stray,and it is often the most intelligent who ask questions which are not answered.

It is difficult to say ,for a combination of factors make for a total person.
The sun position is only one.
But you must be in the latter half of the zodiac,where questioning begins.
In a chart there are all the planets ,and the houses from the ascendant.
I could only be guessing ,unless I saw you appearance,helps too.
But I will,on one condition that you give me your time and date of birth after
,so that I can explain.

Well hes being dishonest then. Apparently every priest in the country thinks hes got the authority of being a Pope now.

Fr Darcy and McVerry and Healy and all those other priests should be honest with themselves and their congregations and leave the church. Let them join or even found a new church. Stop wrecking it for the true Catholics.

Catechism would have a different viewpoint
"All forms of divination are to be rejected: recourse to Satan or demons, conjuring up the dead or other practices falsely supposed to ‘unveil’ the future. Consulting horoscopes, astrology, palm reading, interpretation of omens and lots, the phenomena of clairvoyance, and recourse to mediums all conceal a desire for power over time, history, and, in the last analysis, other human beings, as well as a wish to conciliate hidden powers. They contradict the honor, respect, and loving fear that we owe to God alone" (CCC 2116).

Yes, (though I doubt he care if we accepted him as saviour or not as long as we lead good lives)!!!
So let me get this straight. You actually believe that Jesus was God and he (a male) came to Earth as his own son by sending the holy spirit (who was also himself) to get Mary pregnant. Also that he did this so that he could get himself killed, so that he could pay a debt to himself, that was owed to him by humanity, because the first ever woman had believed a talking snake.

Are you actually believing that story or do you just say that you do without really thinking about it too much? Personally I find it an absolutely incredible fable, if you can honestly say you place great credit in it then fair play to you.

It is time the church and her people stoppedbeing afaid of gods creation .I do not divine.
I have become a beliver because I can see the wonder of the laws fo God in the Sky which He created.
Just like one sees the laws of nature in the country side,thse go into the universe.As above ,so below.
I DO NO DEVINE .
But I can through Gods grace help people who are more advanced ,to
come back to god .
The popoes role is just to guide the masses to a certain level .
We must ask questions if we are to enter the Kingdom.
You are all too 'sheep like,but that's all right too,if that is your level.
Even Einstein would have been baffled by his own theory before he was ready to understand it.
So you would say to people in school,stay ignorant ,for God wants you that way .I think not.
