BISHOP KEVIN DORAN - THE TWAT


The Roman Catholic bishop of Sligo is one of the biggest "twats" you'll find.


"twat"
  1. a person regarded as stupid or obnoxious.

During the Gay Marriage Referendum in the Republic last year he said that being gay was like having Down's Syndrome - managing to offend both the gay and Down's Syndrome community at the same time!

This week Kevin Doran put his two big feet in it once again when he gave an interview to the Irish Independent newspaper. In that interview he said a number of twattish things:

1. That the Catholic Church had gone too far in apologising to the victims of its sex abuse!

2. That the Irish had lost the spirit of volunteerism and were allowing state intervention instead.

3. That he himself would love to go down to the local refugee centre as a volunteer but if he went there he would be seen as special as a bishop!.

1. TOO FAR IN APOLOGISING?

Only an out and out twat would say that the Church had gone too far in apologising for its sexual abuse.


How can a person or an institution APOLOGISE TOO MUCH for the sexual abuse of innocent little children and vulnerable adults?

How can the Church - which is supposed to represent God - apologise TOO MUCH for the fact that in its abuse it was more the servant of Satan than of God?

How can the Church apologise too much to the little boys and girls that Father Brendan and other priests raped?

SORRY FOR APOLOGISING TO MUCH FOR YOU BRENDAN !!!


How can the Church apologise too much for burying hundreds of little children in the disused sewerage tanks of convents.

Having allowed what the Church allowed to happen - and cover up - the Church should be on its knees apologising - not just for decades and centuries - but for eternity!


Doran's stupid and twat statement is further proof that there are many in the Catholic Church who have NO REAL SORROW OR REMORSE for the evil deeds that it did and the evil bastards that it protected.

SHAME ON YOU DORAN for saying that the church has apologised too much!!! 

2. THE IRISH NOT VOLUNTEERING?

What planet are you living on Kevin Doran? Do you not know about all the thousands of men and women that are volunteers in all kinds of organisations the length and breath of Ireland.


- men and women in the scouts and girl guides movements
- men and women in health charities.
- men and women in community work.
- men and women in addiction organisations.
- men and women on school boards.
- men and women in sports clubs.

Kevin Foran, are you trying to tell me that there is a shortage of volunteers in Sligo in the GAA, the Hospice, the scouts, the girl guides, cancer charities, the Legion of Mary, the St Vincent de Paul.


No Kevin. The volunteers are there. But you do not see them. And none of them are getting the salary and expenses you are getting for your role as a catholic bishop. 

3. DORAN CANNOT VOLUNTEER?

Kevin why can you not volunteer. Just take that collar off from around your neck and that mitre off your head, put on a pair of jeans and a tea shirt and head down to the refugee centre and volunteer  as plain Kevin. Then start cooking or serving food or start scrubbing floors. 


All that's stopping you is this sense of being a bishop that you are hiding behind. 

As a young priest I volunteered in a homeless centre in Dublin and after saying Mass at 9 am I spent the rest of the day making beds, washing floors, cooking and serving food.

The fact that I was a priest never got in my way - in my mind or anybody's else's mind.

When I was in Divis Flats in the early 1980's I had no problem going out to clean the streets with a brush and a mop



Nowadays I am a bishop too and every Friday I take off my collar and put on a charity tea shirt and spend the afternoon volunteering in an end of life unit.

At other times in the month I use my own car to drive people to the unit for their chemotherapy.

Kevin, you and I know each other since we were both 17/18 and entered the same seminary on the same day.

As your equal (at least) I am telling you to get up off your episcopal arse and do something good and practical for the community in which you live.

A bit more activity might stop you uttering stupid and twattish things too.

Its what Jesus would do and its what he would want you to do.

Over and out..............................

  2. I'm not surprised by Kevin Doran. He's part of a select group in the church who still haven't got it....the penny hasn't dropped....they don't understand the enormity of the sex abuse crisis. As a priest working on the ground, I know full well the irreprepable damage that has been done. As a church we have no right or moral authority to ever preach on sexual morality again......that horse well & truly bolted when we abused the first child, never mind the thousands more since then. Doran will never learn - he just doesn't get it.

  4. I have mixed memories of Elphin. It is full of imperfect people including clergy just like you and I. Bishop Doran I cant comment on because I dont know him. One would hope all would have learned from the lessons of time

    Pat, I entirely agree with you that +Doran's comments are highly inappropriate. But so too is your choice of the derogatory term you used to describe him.
    I never had occasion to dictionary search the term until now, understanding it as simply a highly derogatory term with female sexual connotations. My pocket Oxford indicates it as 'a noun,vulgar female genitals; unpleasant or stupid person'. Wikipedia describes it as 'vulgar slang for human vulva, but more widely used as a derogatory epithet ...referring to a person as obnoxious or stupid'.
    Your post rightly indicates the stupid obnoxious element of Doran's reported comments, but I think an equally critical but more appropriate term could have been chosen.

    1. MMM, Thank you for your usual honesty.

      I deliberately put the definition of "twat" that I was using at the beginning of the blog to clarify which meaning of the word I was using.

    2. The term twat dus indeed mean woman's bits in the dictionary. In ireland however it can mean that ur dumb or stupid . Other rude words can have other meanings in ireland also . If someone said hoore it would not mean ur a prostitute. If someone said cunt it wouldn't mean a sexual organ . It's the same with many of our swearwords they don't always mean to the irish what they mean in the dictionary

  7. Sorry Pat in your list of Volunteers did you forget Parish Councils and the women? who line up to make the food for confirmation. What about some parents who take a crash course in Roman Catholicism so's their children can be confirmed
