Church of Ireland praying for success of Romanist bishop – Right Eejit John McDowell

2 John 1:9-11: “Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.”

A Church of Ireland bishop has expressed his hope that he will enjoy a strong “friendship” with his new Roman Catholic counterpart in the Diocese of Clogher.

‘Monsignor’ Larry Duffy was named the new Roman Catholic Bishop of Clogher earlier this month and the Church of Ireland Bishop of Clogher, the Right Eejit (though he presumably prefers Right Reverend) John McDowell was quick to wish Bishop Larry Duffy well as he takes up his leading role in propagating Romish deceit in the area.

Welcoming the appointment of ‘Monsignor’ Larry Duffy, Right Eejit John McDowell said: “I want to congratulate Mgr Duffy on his appointment and assure him of my prayers and those of his many friends within the Church of Ireland community.

“I look forward to working with the new Bishop in the same spirit of friendship and service as I was fortunate enough to share with his predecessor Bishop Liam McDaid and pray that Mgr Duffy will know the presence of the Lord as he prepares for his episcopal ordination.”

It should not be much of a surprise to see Right Eejit John McDowell wishing his Romish friend success in his new role and making overtures towards him with regards seeking to establish ecumenical relationships.

Indeed, just last month, Right Eejit John McDowell shockingly preached from the Apocrypha in a Remembrance Sunday service in St Macartin’s Church of Ireland Cathedral in Enniskillen.

Not only that, but he has regularly cosied up with Larry Duffy’s predecessor as Roman Catholic Bishop of Clogher, Liam McDaid, as Right Eejit John McDowell himself attested to in his statement welcoming the new occupant of the post.

He has also established ecumenical links with ‘Monsignor’ Peter O’Reilly, a good friend of the brazen ecumenist Rev Kenneth Hall (the pair are pictured together, below, with ‘Monsignor’ Peter O’Reilly on the right), Church of Ireland Dean of Clogher. Peter O’Reilly has held the role of Diocesan Administrator of the Roman Catholic Clogher Diocese while a new bishop was sought.

Indeed, Right Eejit John McDowell has just yesterday (Monday) issued his joint Christmas message with his Romish chum. Any mention of how we might be saved in the message, given his message is supposed to centre around the incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ? Of course not.

And the man who occupied the bishop post prior to Liam McDaid was Joseph Duffy, a man found in a damning report by the Irish National Board for Safeguarding Children in 2010 to have “failed to prevent clerical sex abuse and did not remove suspected paedophile priests from the ministry”.

This was reported on in the Belfast Telegraph, with the relevant article still available online.

That same Belfast Telegraph article also reports that there was “an unacceptable delay” in taking action against one priest, while it was also reported that Bishop Joseph Duffy’s delay came despite concerns being raised of a “credible allegation” in his Clogher diocese.”

And back in June, we highlighted how Right Eejit John McDowell was a guest of honour at a Mass celebrating 60 years since the ordination of Joseph Duffy (pictured, below) to the Romanist priesthood.

To attend the Romish Mass as a supposedly Protestant minister, regardless of whether or not (and we know not) Right Eejit John McDowell partook of the elements, is a grave matter and ought to have been dealt with in the strongest possible of terms by the Church of Ireland.

After all, their own 39 Articles, which supposedly govern the church, condemn the Mass as a “blasphemous fable” and a “dangerous deceit”.

However, he remains in situ six months later, continuing to brazenly embrace Rome and celebrate and offer support to various practitioners of Popish priestcraft.

That is leaving aside Right Eejit John McDowell’s honouring of a priest condemned in such terms by that report from the Irish National Board for Safeguarding Children.

One can only conclude the Church of Ireland has abandoned its 39 Articles in favour of mean compromise with Rome, a church which, through the centuries long Inquisition and various other means, has sought to silence and destroy the glorious message of the gospel of salvation by faith alone in Christ alone (Ephesians 2:8-9).

Right Eejit John McDowell’s conduct can at best be described as bidding God speed to the workers of unrighteousness and making him a partaker of their evil deeds.

And by the Church of Ireland allowing such a situation to develop and proceed unhindered, the church is implicated in this guiltiness of endorsing Romanism.

Also, this situation with the new Roman Catholic Bishop of Clogher provides exactly the same scenario, as this leading figure in the Church of Ireland says he will pray for the success of this new bishop.

Success of course, for Larry Duffy, would be to see the Roman Catholic diocese of Clogher growing and the teaching of Romanism gaining ground.

Yet this is apparently what Right Eejit John McDowell is happy to set his seal of approval to?

What a sad state of affairs.

Dear reader, if you remain tied up among the Anglican movement, which is ran by and large by rampant ecumenists and ecclesiastic compromisers, won’t you even separate yourself from the likes of Right Eejit John McDowell?

This call will be necessary up to the close of this age to God’s chosen people caught up in that which they ought to be well clear of.

Revelation 18:1-4 demonstrates this: “And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”

Be not partakers of the plagues of apostasy and ecumenism but instead be separated unto Christ.

Hebrews 13:13: “Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.”

Church of Ireland bishop is guest of honour at Mass celebrating priest who ‘failed to prevent clerical sex abuse’

The Church of Ireland Bishop of Clogher, the Right Eejit John McDowell, has attended the Romish blasphemy of the Mass being held to celebrate 60 years in the priesthood of a man who was found to have “failed to prevent clerical sex abuse”.

It’s perhaps profitable to pause a moment and take that in.

A senior supposedly Protestant clergyman not only attended the central blasphemous act of Roman Catholic worship, but he compounded that grave act of treachery by attending such a Mass as one that would honour Bishop Joseph Duffy, a man who “failed to prevent clerical sex abuse”.

The Mass was held on Sunday past in St Macartan’s Roman Catholic Cathedral in Monaghan town.

Is this the type of man who anyone should be celebrating, let alone a supposedly God fearing cleric?

It is also a brazen act of defiance by Rome and a slap in the face to any victims of abuse to honour such a character as this former Roman Catholic Bishop of Clogher.

Right Eejit John McDowell is no stranger to consorting with Bishop Joseph Duffy, indeed we previously highlighted how the pair were joint guests of honour at a ‘community event’ in a Church of Ireland church in nearby Clones, County Monaghan.

At that time, we highlighted the highly critical report brought by the Irish National Board for Safeguarding Children.

We said at that time: “Bishop Joseph Duffy was the Roman Catholic Bishop of Clogher until his retirement in 2010 and a damning report by the Irish National Board for Safeguarding Children later found that he “failed to prevent clerical sex abuse and did not remove suspected paedophile priests from the ministry”, a Belfast Telegraph report says.

“It also says there was “an unacceptable delay” in taking action against one priest, while it was also reported that Bishop Joseph Duffy’s delay came despite concerns being raised of a “credible allegation” in his Clogher diocese.”

It would not be unreasonable to think even an arch-ecumenist like Right Eejit John McDowell might consider it wise to take a step back from a scandal-hit Papist such as Bishop Joseph Duffy (pictured, above).

However, not a bit of it.

He has carried on regardless, determined to defy God and carry out his own religion, making his own false idols in his religion of ecumenism. He will please himself, as the idolaters of Israel in the days of Amos.

It says in Amos 4:4-5: “Come to Beth-el, and transgress; at Gilgal multiply transgression; and bring your sacrifices every morning, and your tithes after three years: And offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving with leaven, and proclaim and publish the free offerings: for this liketh you, O ye children of Israel, saith the Lord God.”

It could be clearly said that “this liketh you”, O Bishop John McDowell.

He has continued to offer up his leavened sacrifices to God and it is a fearful thing to think that God would give him up to his apostasy, as he did with those idolaters and transgressors in the days of Amos.

Right Eejit John McDowell was certainly keeping company with idolaters and transgressors on Sunday, as, among a crowd of 500, the Catholic Diocese of Clogher website reports, there were 30 Romanist priests.

This included ‘Monsignor’ Joseph McGuinness, the Papal mouthpiece for the blocking of the erection of a memorial to 13 Protestants murdered by Roman Catholic terrorists in a bombing in Enniskillen. The bomb had been planted in Roman Catholic Church property.

As an aside, it is interesting to note the Church of Ireland Clogher Diocese website has a very clear and prominently placed link on its homepage directing you to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Clogher website. There is no such reciprocation on the Roman Catholic website. We believe that is very telling.

Back to Sunday’s service and no doubt Right Eejit John McDowell will have been delighted to be name-checked by not one, but two priests of the pagan corruption of Rome.

First to do so was the man giving the homily to Bishop Joseph Duffy, a ‘Father’ Paddy McGinn.

He said, referring to Bishop Joseph Duffy: “His work in the area of ecumenism has been outstanding and noteworthy and it is great for us to have Bishop John McDowell, Church of Ireland Bishop of Clogher, with us here today.”

Right Eejit John McDowell had his ego still further massaged when Bishop Joseph Duffy himself took the stage.

He said: “I especially welcome Bishop John McDowell of the Church of Ireland who is here present.”

So there you go – a special welcome from Rome to the so-called Protestant minister in attendance.

Were Right Eejit John McDowell truly preaching the gospel and earnestly contending for the faith, he wouldn’t be darkening the door of that chapel, and what’s more, the Roman Catholic Church wouldn’t let him near the place either.

The 39 Articles which are supposed to govern his church, the Church of Ireland, state that the Mass is a “blasphemous fable and dangerous deceit”.

Clearly, Right Eejit John McDowell does not believe that.

Such deceit on his behalf is strongly condemned by God. God speaks on numerous occasions of the bloodguiltiness of the preacher who neglects to shepherd the flock in the manner He has so ordained.

Such men speak only of peace, but their notion of peace is faulty for they make peace with sin, rather than imploring sinners to be at peace with God through the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Isaiah 59:3-4,8 says: “For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness. None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity. The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace.”

This deception not only leads to the destruction of its propagator, but also of its followers.

We received correspondence some weeks back from a Church of Ireland minister who serves under Bishop John McDowell in the Diocese of Clogher.

This gentleman said, among other things, in one of the more polite messages we have received, the following: “I am not saying that I agree with everything that every clergy member in my church does but I do believe that God will be the judge if they have erred in any way and that they will have to give an account for their actions.”

He is, of course, absolutely right that God will judge and the likes of Bishop John McDowell will have to give an account for his actions.

However, Christians ought to challenge actions like these as they are such blatant departures from the Word of God. The damage is being done now, sinners are being told lies now and we must speak up now in God’s name to call out the actions of Right Eejit John McDowell for what they are – utter apostasy.

If you are involved with the Church of Ireland, we would implore you to break from clerical traitors such as Right Eejit John McDowell and separate yourself from them.

We would also encourage anyone who knows anyone in that Clogher Diocese area to share this article with them in the hope that they will “come out from among them” and instead fellowship with a Christ honouring church, not one for whom many of its leading figures glory in their links with the Romanist deceit.

Hebrews 13:13: “Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.”

Church of Ireland in County Monaghan welcomes Romish priest who ‘failed to prevent clerical sex abuse’ into its midst

The Church of Ireland in the town of Clones last night held a ‘community event’ at which Bishop Joseph Duffy (pictured, top) was one of the invited guests.

Bishop Joseph Duffy was the Roman Catholic Bishop of Clogher until his retirement in 2010 and a damning report by the Irish National Board for Safeguarding Children later found that he “failed to prevent clerical sex abuse and did not remove suspected paedophile priests from the ministry”, a Belfast Telegraph report says.

It also says there was “an unacceptable delay” in taking action against one priest, while it was also reported that Bishop Joseph Duffy’s delay came despite concerns being raised of a “credible allegation” in his Clogher diocese.

The event last night in St Tighernagh’s Parish Church was “to remember St Tighernagh, his ministry and his significance to the cross border parish and to the Diocese of Clogher and Clones”, according to the Diocese of Clogher’s website.

The notice further pointed out that in attendance would be “Bishop Joseph Duffy” and the “Bishop of Clogher, the Right Reverend (Right Eejit!) John McDowell”.

Right Eejit John McDowell (pictured, below) is a noted ecumenist and makes sure to be on close terms with the Roman Catholic Bishop of Clogher, attending various events with him and each year producing a joint Christmas message.

Indeed, even though there was no Bishop of Clogher in place at Christmas past following the retirement of the previous incumbent, Right Eejit John McDowell felt the need to issue an ecumenical Christmas message of fluffy pseudo-Christianity with some emissary of Romanist deceit.

His Papal pal last Christmas was ‘Monsignor’ Joseph McGuinness, Diocesan Administrator of Clogher.

And when the previous Roman Catholic Bishop of Clogher, Liam MacDaid retired, Right Eejit John McDowell issued a valedictory statement describing the Romanist priest as his “brother in Christ” and it had been “the greatest privilege to have served our Lord Jesus Christ together”.

They may well have served the same god together, but it most certainly was not the omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent God of heaven.

It was certainly not the risen Christ, who shed His blood at Calvary so that we might come to Him for forgiveness of our sins and be saved from a lost eternity.

And if Right Eejit John McDowell considers Romanists, presumably including this Bishop Joseph Duffy, to be his “brothers in Christ” then we are led to the conclusion that he must believe and be teaching and preaching “another gospel”.

We should not be surprised that ministers are departing from the gospel, as we are warned of it in God’s Word.

2 Timothy 4:3-4: “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

2 Peter 2:1-2: “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.”

Is not the way of truth being spoken of in an evil manner these days? Is not bitter being put for sweet, and sweet for bitter?

Are we not told that homosexuality is now acceptable, nay, commendable? The Bible has a different view (Romans 1:21-27; Leviticus 18:22).

Are we not told that the murder of unborn children is an acceptable ‘lifestyle choice’? The Bible has a different view (Psalm 139:13-16).

Are we not told how vital it is that Ulster must be jointly governed by murderers and their apologists? The Bible has a different view (Exodus 20:13).

Are we not told that we must join with other churches, regardless of traditional fundamental theological differences, in the name of unity? The Bible has a different view (Ephesians 5:11).

Just because we should not be surprised, it does not mean that we should be silent.

Paul, under the inspiration of the Holy Ghost, exhorted Timothy in 2 Timothy 4:2 to “be instant in season, out of season, reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine”.

He didn’t tell Timothy to be faithful when the going is good and the people are receptive to the message, he was to preach the gospel “out of season”, whenever he was not to receive such a friendly response.

That is certainly the age in which we are living today.

Jude v 3 says that “ye should earnestly contend for the faith”.

There was absolutely no earnest contention for the faith in that church in Clones in County Monaghan last night.

Were there any, they would not have invited along a Papal bishop found to have “failed to prevent clerical sex abuse” and an Anglican bishop who denies the gospel of Christ by calling himself a spiritual brother of a man who has devoted his life to propagating the lies and deceits of the Roman Catholic system, a system which leads lost souls to just one place – hell.

If you are involved with or have loved ones involved with the apostate churches, please follow Christ’s call to “come out from among them, and be ye separate”.

And if you aren’t saved, then call on the precious name of the Lord Jesus Christ for forgiveness “and thou shalt be saved”.
