The Roman Catholic Archbishop of Dublin, Ireland, has evacuated priests which were being trained at the Maynooth Seminary over claims of broad utilization of the gay sex application Grindr.
An anonymous letter developed in May, charging gay person movement among a few students and teachers. Authorities issued an announcement promising to altogether manage such conduct.
The Roman Catholic Archbishop in Dublin Diarmuid Martin said there were various claims about gay sex at the Maynooth Seminary where more than 50 students are being prepared to wind up ministers of the congregation.
The diocese archbishoph said the utilization of Grindr dating application would be unseemly for seminarians.
The archbishop said the use of Grindr applicstion would be inappropriate for seminarians.
“Not just because they are training to be celibate priests but because an app like that is something that would be fostering promiscuous sexuality which is certainly not in any way the mature vision of sexuality that one would expect priests to understand” ssid Martin.
The Archbishop further said a culture of mysterious letters is harmful and would be more content to send different students somewhere else. These students expelled from Dublin have been sent to Rome.
The seminary was formed in 1795 and at the height of Catholic Church power in Ireland trained around 500 young men for the priesthood.
