LETTER FROM A 70 YEAR OLD LADY:
Bishop Pat. I have been a faithful catholic for over 70 years. I believe in a God of love. Last night I was at clonard novena and heard the redemptorist priest give a wonderful and inspiring sermon on how we are born the way we are, regardless of whether we are LGBT or straight or whatever and that love is love regardless of who it is between. I fully agree.
Despite Pope Francis saying something similar, the down and connor diocese continue to deny people the right to love. Recently I went to confession and asked was I now going to be accepted as a full member of the church given that I have been a lesbian all my life. I was met with outright condemnation by the priest. His God is obviously not my God.
I know quite a few gay priests and how they stay in this organisation is beyond me. The greatest gift we have been given is love yet these hypocrites deny us the right to practice this and remain in the church.

This is our church. Not Treanors. Not O' Hagans. I can no longer sit and experience the beauty of the mass, knowing that other like-minded people are considered sinners by these bloody hypocrites.
|O'HAGAN - TREANORS POODLE|
OHagan is more interested in keeping secrets than he is promoting the endless love of God. Indeed OHagan was in a gay club I was in. Fair play to him but he needs to have the balls to admit who he is and not play pretend.
O'Donnell in St Brigid is another one. He is the priest I went to. All he is interested in is money and his own status. The church has sadly become irredeemable and I am embarrassed to say I have any association with it.
|O'DONNELL - CAHAL DALYS FORMER POODLE|
My God reigns and HE is a god of love not a god of hypocrisy nor a god of money nor is he a mafioso. The bishops house should be renamed as mafia headquarters.
Paramilitaries have stood down. It's time the Catholic mafia of Down and Connor did the same. They are a disgrace to Christ and a disgrace to all well meaning Catholics. If your right eye offends you cut it out. Well it's time to rid our church of the evil cancer of the Down and Connor mafia.
I have gone on far too long and didn't intend to go this far but something must be done to stop this evil. The Devil is alive and working within the Diocesan Curia but they are so far up their own backsides they just can't see.
LETTER FROM D&C MALE PARISHIONER:
The God i know is a living and an honest God. Why then is the so called down and Connor shepherd Noel Treanor presiding over an organization riddled with hypocrisy and lies.
Why are openly gay priests in the Diocese not free to practice their sexuality without having to live a lie enforced upon them by this corrupt organization?
Any man or woman should be free to l ove who they choose . Is this not better than living a lie and Treanor pretending everything in the garden is rosy. He and his henchmen are a band of vipers
I have not heard of the controversy with Tony Farquhar's housekeeper?
Is her name Bernie?
What was that all about?
Why did Treanor "pay her off"?
