Priest's actions should lead to his suspension

Published 19/09/2016

Father Brian D'Arcy's outrageous attack on the unborn child, posing as concern for the abortion-seeking mother's financial welfare, should lead to his immediate suspension from the active priestly ministry until it can be determined that he is repentant and will desist from causing further scandal by his blatant rejection of God's moral law.

That this priest goes on to express his willingness to see "gay adoption" and to "bless" same-sex "marriages" is further proof that the man is about as Catholic as the nearest imam.

He remarks that his views may mean that his days as a Catholic priest are over.

Speaking for our Irish readership, I hope he's right.
