There are reports emerging from Maynooth that two years ago during the Maynooth crisis, a small number of seminarians were involved in BDSM - bondage, domination, sadism and masochism!
Apparently, during one of these sessions, one seminarian had a limb broken.
The seminary council led an inquiry into how the fracture happened and the seminarians lied to them.
Then, when the big crisis broke, one of the seminarians got afraid and went and told the authorities the truth.
Some of those involved in BDSM have left, but not all of them.
ONE other report says some well-known seminarians used to organize gay rituals in the seminary.
SEMINARY "RENT BOYS":
Another report says that over recent years a number of Maynooth seminarians have been acting as "rent boys" for priests and more senior clergy.
These activities took place especially in Dublin Armagh and Cork and Ross.
This has laid to reports that the seminarians providing the services went on to blackmail clergy including some well-known ones.
This, of course, means that the strange goings on have involved clergy - bishops not excluded!
Eventually, these names will leak out and there will be senior resignations.
Rent boys always tell their story in the end, especially when large sums are offered.
At present, I know some names but have not sufficient evidence to publish.
But I am working on it.
Some seminarians have been ordained because they had the dirt on senior clergy.
This is a deeper scandal than previously realized.
There is much, much worse to come in clerical and hierarchical Ireland.
