Murray MacDonald is testifying.
Turns out he and the bunch who were presumably “investigating” and/or discussing David Silmser’s allegations against Father Charles MacDonald had more or less concluded that Dave had a consensual homosexual encounter with Father Charles MacDonald.
Where did they drum up that one?
Well, …presumably that’s what Shaver told him Bishop Larocque said Charlie said. Charlie admitted to an homosexual encounter with Dave. And that it seems fit right into their theory and they ran with it!!!
Then objections and howls from the diocese on Murray saying Shaver told him that’s what Larocque said Charlie said. That evidence has all been re-jiggered to say that Charlie admitted to homosexual encounters with parishioners – NOT with Dave.
But, can you believe it? Charlie said it was consensual so, well, why would Charlie lie? If Charlie, a Roman Catholic priest, said it was consensual then obviously it was consensual.
What a vile disgusting lot.
And note, not one of these witnesses is being asked: (i) “Are you Roman Catholic?” and if yes, (ii) What parish do you attend?” (iii) Are you a member of the Knights of Columbus?” or, for lawyers (iv) “Do you have any affiliation with the St. Thomas More Lawyer’s Guild?”
Anyway, Murray M stammers and stutters along. Institutional lawyers are doing their bouncing up and down with objections in defence of the “good” repute of their clients.
The same old same old.
And not one word of apology out of this man’s mouth to David Silmser. Not one word of apology.
And looks like they’ll be out of there by early afternoon. Fancy that!
Enough for now,
