Gardaí investigating comments by religious brother during mass calling gay people 'zombies' Remarks: Brother Tom Forde lashed out at people who were 'morally rotten or at least infected'

Gardaí are investigating alleged hate speech by a religious brother who compared gay people to ‘zombies’ during a homily at a mass.

Brother Tom Forde likened gay people to ‘zombies’ and said that “the only way to deal with the monsters is to stab or shoot them in the brain” during the mass in Kilkenny.

Following a complaint from the public, the homily is now being investigated by An Garda Síochana.

“Gardaí are investigating the contents of remarks made during a religious service held on 8th June 2019 in Kilkenny and relevant publications,” said a spokesperson for the gardaí.

Gardaí reviewing CCTV as woman alleges sexual assault by group of men close to Luas stop Detectives are investigating an allegation of a serious sexual assault in Dublin over the weekend. A woman alleged she was attacked by a number of men on the city's southside, having taken a Luas into town earlier that day. She was found near a property in Rialto, Dublin 8, in a distressed state and gardaí were later called. It is understood the incident is alleged to have happened near the Luas stop at Rialto on Friday evening, although inquiries to determine the exact location of the assault are ongoing. Over the weekend the matter was formally reported to gardaí at Rathfarnham who are carrying out a probe into the alleged sexual assault.

Many views are held or have been expressed by religious organizations in relation to same-sex marriage. Arguments both in favor of and in opposition to same-sex marriage are often made on religious grounds and/or formulated in terms of religious doctrine.

“The investigation commenced following a complaint from the public,” the statement added.

Following public outrage, The Bishop of Ossory Dermot Farrell issued a statement on behalf of the priest’s diocese, Ossory Diocese and apologised for the language used.

“As followers of Christ, the Gospel we proclaim is about the welcome and inclusion of all; as every person - no matter their faith, or race, or sexual orientation - is made by God and is loved by God," said Bishop Farrell.

"Furthermore, when harm is done an apology is to be given."

"I welcome, therefore, the statement of the Capuchin Order expressing their deep regret and their strong reaffirmation of their welcome of all people,” Bishop Farrell added.

Colm O Gorman, the executive director for Amnesty Ireland, condemned the comments as “unadulterated homophobia”.

Church goers stunned as Kilkenny priest compares gay people to infected zombies

Church goers stunned as Kilkenny priest compares gay people to infected zombies Brother Tom Forde suggested those who believe in contraception and abortion are “morally rotten” and the “living dead” . The homily read: “I begin this homily with an embarrassing admission. It may destroy whatever respect you have for me. “You may decide to disregard everything I say now and in the future. But there is a point to my admission and I ask you to be patient with me. I am a little odd. I like zombies.” The former University College Cork chaplain continued to list movies and TV shows featuring zombies, including US hit show The Walking Dead.

Gay tolerant maybe. Gay people still get a lot of huffs and puffs from people who think they're sick, or mentally deficient, or sinners. Religious affiliation by comparison is a choice and yet it’s one that often receives constitutional protections, privileges and respect.

EDIT: I have seen a lot of people harassing Kim Noble on Twitter. She was NOT a featured artist at Comet Ping Pong and was simply brought into this investigation to point out the handkerchief connection. She also sheds light on the fact Satanic Ritual Abuse is REAL!

“Plain, unadulterated homophobia. Indefensible and hateful,” he wrote in a tweet.
