Girardville priest protests pirate


Apparently a certain Girardville pastor led the flock to a statue of mannequin depicting a female pirate which he claimed was obscene, according to a posting on the Cardinal Brennan alumni message board ..

Subsequent follow up comments weighed in on the matter..

Father Edward Connelly owns his own website called Reasonably Well . .He is the chaplain and co-host of Road To Cana.

And now fiercely against scantily clad plastic pirates..

It wasn't much of a flock. Like 4 women and 2 men?

There were over forty parishoners at the protest in front of the furniture store.

what does this have to do with Cardinal Brennan? The guy stands up IN PUBLIC for what he believes in and doesn't hide behind a keyboard.

it's pretty tough to write about CB with it being C L O S E D
as far as this statue, I saw it at the Girardville parade and almost threw up. It's disgusting and nudity. And not what a town should be showing off.
The stateue should be removed

To the person that asked what the pirate has to do with Cardinal Brennan? two points.. CB is closed, what MORE can be talked about now..
Second.. what does a pirate have to do with Lent..?

well, then if there is nothing more to say about cardinal brennan, then time to shut 'er down here, either that or change the name to the Allentown Diocesean Rag because that's all this and the other vent your ignorance site is all about.

I guess it hurts when Connors tells it like it is about Eddie Cullen.

don't hurt me pal, I'm just making the point this was created as a blog about CB, what does all of this have to do with the school? Absolutely, positively, NOTHING.
Oh and by the way 'telling it the way it is' or 'the truth'is put into question when someone has an ax to grind....as you do w/ "Eddie Cullen".
