I wonder how many actually walked out?  Has Ireland really become that liberal?

Irish mass goers walk out over priest’s anti-Semitic comments
Describes Justice Minister Alan Shatter as atheist

By CATHY HAYES,IrishCentral.com Staff Writer


Kilkenny massgoers walked out of a church service last week after the priest described the Minister of Justice as 'Jewish and non practicing' during the sermon...





Men may dislike truth, men may find truth offensive and inconvenient, men may persecute the truth, subvert it, try by law to suppress it. But to maintain that men have the final power over truth is blasphemy, and the last delusion. Truth lives forever, men do not.

Saying someone is "Jewish and nonpracticing" is not "antisemitic". How can it be when it describes most Jews?Anyway, I do believe that a number of liberals and athiests have been trying to destroy the Roman Catholic Church, since even before V2...so his comments about atheists trying to ruin the Church is not off the mark. To get a fuller background as to why and how, see "The Kingship of Christ and the Conversion of the Jewish Nation" by Fr Denis Fahey, C.S.Sp., c 1953

Saying someone is "Jewish and nonpracticing" is not "antisemitic".
Given the context, either the priest knew how such language would be seen as divisive (and thus shame on him), or he was ignorant of how such language would be seen as divisive (another shame, though perhaps less potent).
