Scotland: Gratuitous ignorance clearly no barrier to promotion in Church

July 27, 2012

THE partner of tragic MP David Cairns yesterday demanded the new Archbishop of Glasgow resign – for linking his premature death at the age of 44 to his gay lifestyle.

Dermot Kehoe nursed the Scotland Office minister on his deathbed when he became gravely ill with acute pancreatitis last year.

Kehoe insisted Archbishop Philip Tartaglia had “blackened” the late Inverclyde MP’s name by implying his death was linked to his sexuality.

The archbishop’s comments about the MP – a former priest – date back to April but were only made public on Tuesday as his appointment was announced….

Tartaglia, whose then Paisley diocese covered the Cairns family’s parish, made the comments at a debate at Oxford University on religious freedom.

The Daily Record

“Luigi, why are all the men who give up sex to become Catholic priests so stupid?”

“Well, it’s like this, your holiness…”
