Resignation is the new trend Britain's most senior Roman Catholic cleric resigns

Britain's most senior Roman Catholic cleric resigns; Pope accepts resignation

(Updated 7:53 p.m.) LONDON - Britain's most senior Roman Catholic cleric resigned on Monday following allegations he behaved in an "inappropriate" way with other priests, and said he would not be going to the Vatican to take part in the election for Pope Benedict's replacement.

Pope Benedict has accepted the resignation.

Cardinal Keith O'Brien, who had been expected to take part in the conclave, said he had tendered his resignation to Pope Benedict some months ago as he was turning 75 and because he was suffering from "indifferent health."

The pope, who himself is stepping down on Feb. 28 because of ill health, had decided to accept O'Brien's resignation before he left the role, O'Brien, the archbishop of St. Andrews and Edinburgh, said in a statement.

"For any good I have been able to do, I thank God. For any failures, I apologize to all whom I have offended," said the statement, which made no reference to the recent allegations.

O'Brien, who is known for outspoken views on homosexuality, had been reported to the Vatican over allegations of inappropriate behavior stretching back 30 years, according to the Observer newspaper. He has rejected the claims.

In his statement he confirmed he would not be heading to Rome to take part in the election for Benedict's replacement.

"I do not wish media attention in Rome to be focused on me—but rather on Pope Benedict XVI and on his successor," he said. — Reuters

    Irony of all ironies, although not a total surprise, Cardinal O'Brien was once awarded 'Bigot of the Year' by a gay group for his hateful words against gays.

    Who would have thought he was gay? Hmmm, just about everybody.

    Si Cristo nagsabi niyan:

    11 Jesus answered, “Not everyone can accept this teaching, but God has made some able to accept it. 12 There are different reasons why some men cannot marry. Some men were born without the ability to become fathers. Others were made that way later in life by other people. And some men have given up marriage because of the kingdom of heaven. But the person who can marry should accept this teaching about marriage.”[d] Matthew 19

    si cristo nagsabi na HUWAG MAGASAWA ang mga PARI?
    wala akong nabasa sa sitas mo na BAWAL magASAWA

    eh bakit sabi ng cardinal mo eh HINDI TINURO ni JESUS yan??

    Cardinal Keith O' Brien He explained: "For example the celibacy of the clergy, whether priests should marry - Jesus didn't say that.

    dagdag pa ng cardinal mo

    "There was a time when priests got married, and of course we know at the present time in some branches of the church - in some branches of the Catholic church - priests can get married, so that is obviously not of divine of origin and it could get discussed again."

    hindi daw pala divine origin yan eh kunsultahin natin kung anong origin nanggaling yan gamit ang bible mo

    1 Timothy 4:1-3
    New International Version (NIV)
    4 The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. 2 Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron. 3 They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth.

    ngayon alam mo na :D
