Irish Bishop Bans Retired Priest for Preaching Catholic Morality [which is] “UnChristian”editor
“I am aware of the deep upset and hurt caused by the contents of the homilies in question delivered over the weekend.
“I apologise to all who were offended.
“The views expressed do not represent the Christian position.”
“I regret that this has occurred while a parish pilgrimage to the Holy Land is taking place,” he added, in reference to parish priest Father Declan O’Connor, who is away.
Speaking to local radio station Radio Kerry on Tuesday afternoon, Fr Sheehy said the bishop had told him he was “to be taken off all Masses”.
“I know myself that what I said cannot be disproven by any honest-to-God Catholic, Christian or Catholic teaching, and that’s the bottom line.”
He added that he believed that the bishop was “muzzling the truth in order to appease people”.
Human rights advocate and former head of Amnesty International Ireland Colm O’Gorman said in response to the priest’s homily: “I can only hope that this man finds his way back to love.
“To genuine, open hearted, joyful love, love without judgment, love that expands rather than diminishes one’s connection with one’s own humanity. I am not lost. He is,” he said on Twitter. Source
The above is yet another example of the “diabolical disorientation” prophesied at Fatima, where Sr Lucia warned that the world and the Church would be turned upside down, with good being presented as evil and evil believed to be good. Fr Sheehy’s case is a classic example of this in action. God’s moral law, believed and upheld by all Christians everywhere and at all times from the beginning of Christendom, is now “offensive”; the Bishop shockingly ducks his episcopal duty in order to appease the enemies of Christ, His Church and God’s Moral Law. Goodness, he even apologises for Fr Sheehy’s “unChristian” comments, to all those living in these manifestly public sinful situations and/or who see nothing wrong with such grave sins. Will he apologise, then, for Christ’s reminder that divorce and remarriage is adulterous? (Mark 10:11-12) Or for Christ’s exhortation to the woman caught in adultery to “go and sin no more”? (John 8:11). Is she due an apology? Gerragrip!
Which Gospel are these people reading? If you know, please tell me, because everything I read in the New Testament supports Fr Sheehy’s preaching and denounces – big time – Bishop Browne’s faithless worldliness. On this Feast of All Souls, I’m wondering if this misguided (to say the least) Bishop, and those faithless parishioners ever think of the Four Last Things – Death, Judgment, Heaven, Hell – for all eternity… I seriously doubt it. Your thoughts…
Finally, I will try to find an email address for Fr Sheehy to offer our support, and I will send the link to this thread to Bishop Browne.

But the hireling… hath no care for his sheep.” (John 10:11; 13)
