According to 'The Irish Catholic' the Dominican provincial, Gregory Carroll seems to have written to Patrick Donovan, who was offended by Terence Crotty's words after the Gospel in which it is reported he said homosexuals were 'intrinsically disordered'.
The provincial Gregrory Carrol is reported to have spoken to Terence Corrty about the issue.
It is noteworthy that the provinical wrote to Patrick Donovan.
This sort of 'clerical nonsense' has been coming down the tracks for some time now.
Had this specific issue not made it to the media, the 'right-wing clerical operation' would trundle on. Had someone not got the common sense to bring Terence Crotty's words to the media would the provincial have done anything?
What will it be next? Who is the next person to be offended by right-wing clerical fundamentalism?
In this week's 'Irish Catholic' Mr Donovan is reported to have said that Terence Crotty added: "gay people have little purpose in God's 'greater plan' ".
Terence Crotty is student master of the Irish Dominican province, an appointment made by the provinical Gregory Carroll.
Career clericalism or preaching the Good News?
