The Catholic truth
The self-publicised advertising slogan “Celtic an all-inclusive club open to all” is well banded about and shouted at anyone who will believe it.
But Celtic park on the 8th of June 2013 may not be quite open for all, especially if you are a tolerant modern thinking secular Celtic Fan.
Or in fact a lapse Roman Catholic one
Or a Celtic fan from the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community
Or God forbid a Protestant one.
Any Celtic fan who have had the misfortune to be raped and don’t want to be forced to bring a child consummated by violence and hate into the world. Would be we informed to give Celtic Park a miss as I don’t think the people inside would be sympathetic to your plight.
You see the UBER right wing Dinosaurs the Catholic truth in Scotland are holding a big knees up at the Kerrydale Suite at Celtic park entitled…..

What is the Catholic Truth?
It’s not an oxymoron, naughty reader
It’s an uber conservative, far right Roman Catholic Lobby and pressure group and I quote from their own website.
“Launched on the Feast of St John Ogilvie, Scotland’s only canonised martyr, 10 March, 1999 when it became clear that all our efforts to resolve the growing problems in the Church by writing privately and courteously to our bishops had failed.”
“From the very beginning of the post-Vatican II era, a number of Catholic lay people had been writing regularly to various Scottish Bishops to express concerns about the changing liturgy, most notably the problems of Catholic premises being used by dissenters to attack Catholic faith and morals and priests employed in the media doing exactly the same.”
“These laity spoke respectfully to priests and wrote deferential letters to bishops, but the response was always negative. The bishops either ignored letters or told correspondents to be more charitable. It was not unusual for a politely persistent lay person to be told not to write to the bishop again. If this was the treatment meted out to those who merely sought the resolution of false teaching and liturgical abuses in the new Mass, you can imagine the reaction of bishops to those ‘diehards’ who sought provision of the Traditional Latin Mass. They were rebuked for their “infidelity” to the Pope and told the blatant falsehood that this Mass is now prohibited. Pope Benedict nailed this lie with Summorum Pontificum.”
More than anything else, however, it is our reporting on the extent of homosexuality within the Church in Scotland which has drawn the most vicious reaction from our critics.
Our reports on other crucially important matters, such as the Liturgy and Ecumenism, are generally ignored while critics focus on our upholding of Catholic sexual morality, especially our reports on priests in Glasgow and Edinburgh who actively support the ‘gay’ lifestyle, through running support groups and Masses for ‘gays’ and their partners. We’ve been labelled “extremists” for reporting these scandals.
Over the years we’ve had quite a bit of media coverage, some of it reasonable but most of it hostile and dishonest. Almost every approach to us from the print and broadcasting media has been restricted to the issue of homosexuality. Happily, we were able to set the record straight (pun intended) in some, if not all, cases – see below. Breaking news for our enemies: we have no intention of being silenced, whether we’re labelled extremists, bigots or well-intentioned idiots. We’re here for the duration. Live with it!
Who is Gerald Warner the guest speaker at this event?
Or to give him his Sunday name James Gerald Warner of Craigenmaddie
(How he got that name sitting all the way at the back of the bus one will never know)
Is a Scottish newspaper columnist, author, broadcaster, commentator, and former policy adviser to Michael Forsyth when he was Secretary of State for Scotland.
During the 1990s Conservative government of Prime Minister John Major, he left journalism to become Special Adviser to the Secretary of State for Scotland, the British cabinet minister responsible for Scottish affairs. He had previously been, in 1974, an unsuccessful Parliamentary candidate.
His official history of the Scottish Tory Party included a foreword by none other that PIRA and Bobby Sands ass kicker Margaret Thatcher herself!!!!
Thatcher refused to countenance a return to political status for the prisoners, declaring “Crime is crime is crime; it is not political”
HOW DO YOU LIKE THEM APPLES GREEN BRIGADE?
YOU ARE BEING CRIMINALISED AND BANNED FROM CELTIC PARK FOR SUPPORTING YOUR TEAM AND HERE WE HAVE YOUR CLUB ROLLING OUT THE RED CARPET FOR THIS OLD SCHOOL TORY!
The Conservative party are not the only topic this man is interested in
He seems to have an interest or should that be a profound mistrust of all things free masonry.
For instance his book Secret Places, Hidden Sanctuaries covers various sites and societies favored by conspiracy theorists and unexplained mystery enthusiasts, including Rosslyn Chapel, Area 51, Skull and Bones, Opus Dei, the Esalen Institute, Mount Weather, Heinrich Himmler’s Wewelsburg Castle, Montecristo island and Disneyland’s Club 33.
I KID YOU NOT!
This guy thinks Disneyland is the epicentre for free Masonic craft!
It appears that not only the Roman Catholic Church under the rule of uber strict, ex-nazi and paedophile protector Pope Benedict are to left wing for him but the conservative party is too.
As a social conservative, Warner is a staunch opponent of David Cameron, current leader of the British Conservative Party and now Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. He argues that Cameron and other Tory “modernisers” have antagonised British social conservatives, especially through their pragmatic acceptance of LGBT rights as a fait accompli, given the reforms of the Brown and Blair administrations. He argued that social conservatives should abandon the Conservatives at the last British general election.
James Gerald Warner of Craigenmaddie is also a Knight of Malta just like Cardinal Keith O’Brien’s pal the monstrous Peadophile Jimmy Savile.
Looks like those put upon Scottish Roman Catholics that mentally ill Phil and his depressed sidekick Paul Larkin who keep telling us sit at the back of the bus in society, scrub up pretty damn well for the camera.
What’s the matter Phil and Paul were you not invited to the assembly rooms for the Knights of Malta ball?
Not Roman Catholic enough for them?
To much like a couple of oink underclass scruffbags to them?
Who is Patricia McKeever the editor of the Catholic truth in Scotland?
From a interview in the Times
Patricia McKeever does not like to be photographed.
She does not like people to know where she lives and prefers to communicate with the outside world by letter or e-mail. But, from the security of her home, the 60+ year-old former secondary school teacher has co-ordinated a relentless campaign to name and shame gay Roman Catholic priests.
Her newsletter, Catholic Truth, has so far confronted up to a dozen priests about their alleged homosexuality and has named at least four as being gay or allegedly associating with gay men. It claims to have privately challenged several more priests after receiving information that they attended a gay bar in Glasgow and has also, it says, confronted a seminarian, a prospective seminarian and a Catholic school teacher.
It is currently preparing a “dossier” on a priest it accuses of inviting a homosexual support group into his church and expects to identify him in the newsletter’s next issue. But what Ms McKeever calls her “great work of charity” has not met with universal approval.
The Archdiocese of Glasgow has labelled her group as “self-appointed heresy hunters” and accused her of harassment.
Worse, she recently had to call the police after receiving package after package of hard-core pornography.
Ms McKeever, who intends to expose all priests “unconscionably living a double life”, told The Times in a telephone interview that she had been forced to take action because of an “unprecedented moral crisis” in the Catholic Church”.
She was not prepared to have her photograph taken.
She said: “The Church has always taught that homosexuality is contrary to its teachings.
Homosexual priests do not believe in the Catholic faith any more so they shouldn’t be in the Church.
“I would prefer the bishops to tackle this but, because they are not doing that, we feel it is our duty to let fellow Catholics know what is going on.”
Among those her group has targeted is Father Ed Hone, a parish priest in Edinburgh.
Catholic Truth accused him of inviting a group called Quest, whose members are gay and lesbian Catholics, into his church. In a series of letters and e-mails to him, Ms McKeever asked him: “Are you a homosexual, Father Hone?”
She went on: “Would you please confirm that you accept wholly the Church’s teaching on homosexual activity . . .? What does ‘pastoral care’ for homosexuals entail? Why do homosexuals have to be singled out for special care unlike other sinners who are expected to go regularly to Confession, make a firm determination not to commit serious sins again, pray for purity, etc?”
Father Hone, of St Patrick’s Church in Edinburgh, told The Times:
“The Catholic Truth is conducting a witch-hunt. What she [Ms McKeever] is doing is utterly poisonous.”
The newsletter has also accused Father Gerry Livingstone, of St Peter’s Church in Buckie, Aberdeenshire, of attending a reception to celebrate the civil partnership of a gay couple.
Father Livingstone said yesterday:
“That is a lie and it is all I am prepared to say on the matter.” Asked whether he had denied the allegations to the Catholic Truth, he added: “I have never communicated with them because I treat them with contempt.”
The first that many hear of Ms McKeever is when a letter – normally sent by recorded delivery – turns up on their doorstep or one of her “researchers” sends an e-mail.
She insists that she always gives her subjects a fair hearing, but that is not how her victims see it. “She is relentless,” said one. “Her whole world vision is to root out what she calls ‘hypocrisy’ but that seems to be any kind of view that differs from her own. Her righteousness exceeds everyone else’s.”
A spokesman for the Archdiocese of Glasgow accused Ms McKeever of perpetrating a “medieval witch-hunt”.
“Catholic Truth is a tiny group on the fringe of the Church, utterly unrepresentative of mainstream Catholicism. They are a self-appointed team of heresy hunters, who have made a habit of bombarding the Vatican with ludicrous letters.”
A spokesman for Stonewall, the gay rights group, said: “I would condemn this as a witch-hunt. Being gay should be a barrier to no profession or vocation in life.”
Ms McKeever is believed to live with her mother in Glasgow, but would not confirm this.
“It’s not about me, I’m just the editor,” she said. She has never married. She refuses to say which church she goes to, and says only that she attends “the traditional rite of Mass”. Her newsletter published bimonthly, claims to have a distribution list of 1,000 readers in Scotland. Its website, however, is seen by scores more.
The accused Father Gerry Livingstone of St Peter’s, Buckie, was accused of attending a reception to celebrate the civil partnership of a gay couple. He said:
“That is a lie and it is all I am prepared to say on the matter”
Father Ed Hone works as a parish priest in Edinburgh. Catholic Truth accused him of inviting a group called Quest, whose members are gay and lesbian Roman Catholics, into his church. It claimed that he was “known to be supportive of civil partnerships”. He said:
“To host a support group for gay people is not a crime in the Catholic Church and would be a normal part of pastoral care”
I wonder if IRA fanatic Ms Jeanette Findlay, partner and her close friends of the uber right on Marxists leftists, glorifiers of woman and children killers the Green Brigade have been invited to the the Catholic truth shindig at the Kerrydale suite of Celtic Park?
I wonder what the one time Celtics Legal Champion Paul McBride Q.C and partner* would think of all this?
*Just to confirm Chick Young was not Paul McBride QC’s Gay Lover.
Not that I know of anyway.
