COUNTY DOWN, Northern Ireland, June 7, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) A Catholic priest had his good name smeared in public after he indicated to a couple in Northern Ireland that the grooms publicly expressed pro-abortion views might make the Churchs involvement in their wedding inappropriate.
Shaunagh Griffin, 36, and Kevin McAteer, 32, of Newry hope to marry almost two years from now, on May 22, 2020.
For over a week they have kept media updated on their thoughts following a private message they received from the priest they had asked to celebrate their wedding.
After reading pro-abortion sentiments McAteer, an ex-Councillor for Newry, published on his Facebook page, Father Damien Quigley wrote to the couple saying:
Just a heads up, that as the priest youve asked to celebrate your wedding for you, you and I would need to have a conversation about any promotion you may do to advocate for abortion in Ireland.
Such promotion or advocacy would impact on the appropriateness of me celebrating your wedding or possibly the wedding taking place in a Catholic Church.

Is this 2 guys?
Bravo to the priest. If only more priests would refuse communion to hypocritical politicians who promote abortion.
If there is any justice, that public Catholics who publicly promote and defend abortion don’t get publicly disciplined is a scandal that should be looked back at as dwarfing the homosexual priest scandal and cover up.
speak it LOUDLY sir
