This is not only false, it would actually aggravate it (witness the number within Protestantism) unless the root causes are taken care of. As Pope Benedict recently said of the ACP’s Austrian counterpart, they have ‘issued a summons to disobedience’ – even to the point ‘of disregarding definitive decisions of the Church’s Magisterium’ or teaching authority. They voted instead for the status quo but suggested that it might be an idea to re-open Junior Seminaries.

The Association of Catholic Priests (ACP) should expand its role beyond being a voice of reform and become an agent of reform in the church, a meeting of its leadership team was told.

In April 2012 it published a survey that it commissioned which revealed that nine out of 10 of the 1,000 interviewed practising Catholics (35 per cent attend Mass once a week, 51 per cent once or more each month and 20 per cent a few times a year) said priests should be allowed to marry, with 77 per cent believing women should be ordained and three-quarters of respondents not seeing Catholic Church teachings on sexuality as relevant to them or to their family.

We celebrate humanity in all its God-given diversity and seek to ensure that the voices of LGBTQ+, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Christians are heard, understood and engaged with in the wider Church. I mean are they daft enough to think their goals would help the church or are they so ashamed by the abuse or dissatisfied with their choice in life that they are trying to disassociate from the Church?It was felt that "while the emergence of Pope Francis has created a positive and supportive context for the ACP in the wider church, the situation in Ireland is such that the ACP will not just need to continue with its work, but develop it further. Like most of the other participants on that programme”, Mark Dooley continues “Fr Flannery chanted from a radical hymn book.
