    Default Church Walk Out over Priest's "Jewish and Non-Practising" Jibe at Slatter

    A number of mass-goers walked out of Saturday mass at the Black Abbey, Kilkenny City, after Fr. Eddie Conway called Alan Shatter, Minister for Justice, a "Jewish, non-practicing, atheist".

    Conway said, according to someone who walked out, that the "scandal was a bad thing, but there was a bigger agenda, set by people who have a vested interest against the Church, including Shatter. He said that the child abuse scandal was bad, but there was a lot more going on.

    Other local Dominicans rushed to disassociate themselves.

    Does Conway fear a Jewish-Communist-Atheist Plot led by Shatter ??

    There was a time when the church in Ireland was able to kick politicians into line, and get a good old anti-commie pogrom going. Is that over for good ?

    Scratch the surface and you might find that anti-Semitism is integral to the Catholic tradition.

    A non -practicing Jewish atheist, hmm? They're the worst kind. At least you'd have some time for the non -practicing Catholic atheists

    Another one for the rapid American holiday .... weird accusation. Not just 'jewish' but even worse ... a non-practising jew ... is that better or worse? I'm hugely confused Ted.

    I guess Bertie 'Ashes' Ahern and Michael 'Genuflection' Woods are sadly missed in some parts.

    Oh yeah ... a jewish non-practising atheist .... buh?

    First they came for the muslim non-practising atheists, then they came for the jewish non-practising atheists and then everybody got a bit confused and went home.

    Lads, I'm getting a headache trying to get the brain cell around all this...

    On the plus side, should do wonders for Shatter's popularity in the Big Shmoke......

    Have to say, crystal ball malfunctioning; didn't see the whole FG vs RCC thing coming at all at all.

    Fair play, though....

    This guy appears to be a Dominican .... and weren't they the chief hot-poker-holders during the Inquisition? Wonder will he reveal the source(s) that told him Shatter was a non-practicing atheist?

    This breakdown of serene discipline across the church is absolutely brilliant. As an anticlerical atheist and proud of it I'd just like to thank that Dominican for our unexpected night off and also for the fulsome entertainment. If some kind nun could arrange a bowl of popcorn I'd be made up.

    Kudos, principiis obsta.
    Thus all which you call Sin, Destruction—in brief, Evil—that is my true element.

    Alas, the mass persecution of the Immaculate spouse of Christ is beginning.... The perfidious, satanic Jews who think that they can get away with anything will have much horror to face on that Dreadful Day.. They will not be able to hide from Almighty God any longer.
    Quote above from a trad-cath forum! The burning question on that forum isn't, unsurprisingly, the protection of children - it's the 'soul' of the abuser!

    What if an abuser couldn't confess his sin because of a law [breaking seal of confession] like this? Would God forgive him for it without confession?

    Whatever you do don't tell this one that Babby Jaysus would have been jewish fairly obviously, Andrew. It is likely to cause a faith backdraft resulting in a pietyexplode.
