"Fr Tony Flannery’s silencing by Vatican is condemned by 800-strong priest’s group" by Antoinette Kelly, Irish Central Staff Writer  "In a remarkable development, the 800-strong Association of Irish Priests told the Vatican they were deeply disturbed over the recent decision by the Holy See to silence one its members for his liberal views.The Irish group said in a statement: 'At this critical juncture in our history, the ACP believes that this form of intervention - what Archbishop Diarmuid Martin recently called 'heresy-hunting' - is of no service to the Irish Catholic Church and may have the unintended effect of exacerbating a growing perception of a significant 'disconnect' between the Irish Church and Rome."

:the 800-strong Association of Irish Priests"

The Holy Father needs to dismiss all of these lunatics. No wonder there was a sex abuse crisis in Ireland. The priests there are out of control.

No, they are not lunatics. In fact, the quote is actually a sensible and measured response to a real problem. And your comment about sexual abuse is a non sequitur.

The Holy Father needs to dismiss himself. No wonder there is a moral crisis in the Roman Catholic Church. Its pope is out of control.

The Holy Father takes all allegations of sexual abuse of priests by children seriously.
