I know well about it. I am what you Irish call an FBI, foreign born Irish, and proud of it. Ellen and I had our honeymoon in Ireland. What a great time we had. We were all over North Ireland too. Those little army trucks followed us all over, even when we turned around. Also been to TF dances back in 1967 ect. I understand what you mean about some priests, even now. I am a 4th degree kc out of St. Joes in Harvard, il. and have been ban from ever going into St. Joes, even to visit the Blessed Sacrament, and have been threaten to be put out of the Knights of Columbus. Why, because I stood up to a man that is after my wife Ellen. I told him that Ellen is my girl and find your own girl. I have been married to her for 42 years and we have had 4 children. She would not even go to Mass daily because he hit on her (what the US girls call trying to make a date) all the time. Every day. The priest told me off and said to never come there again. I told the priest that he pushed me with both hands and the priest said he would not do that. Well he did, and when he found how solid I was, ran out the door. I have been trained to take a man like that down in a heart beat, yet I froze and didn't move a muscle because I was in church. (how is that for control?) The Blessed Sacrament was not in the chapel.
