Vatican continue to silence ‘liberal’ Catholic priest Father Tony Flannery
Outspoken Irish priest continues to be investigated over ‘dissent’
The Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) has issued fresh documentation for Father Tony Flannery to sign after the priest’s ‘liberal’ views came to light this year.
According to the Irish Independent, Flannery, the founder of the Silenced Redemptorist and Association of Catholic Priests (ACP), has had trouble signing past documentation that would retract earlier statements and has come under increasing scrutiny by the Vatican.
Father Flannery has stated in the past that he would like the Vatican to reconsider issues such as women’s ordination, marriage for priests, contraception, and homosexuality, a move that brought him under fire from the Vatican hierarchy. The CDF took increasing notice of Flannery after the ACP leader supported a speech made by An Taoiseach Enda Kenny’s where he blasted the Vatican for their ‘elitism, dysfunction, disconnection and narcissism.’
According to the Irish Independent, the CDF have again contacted Flannery over his views and continue to pursue him, a move that the ACP call ‘disturbing.’
