Fr. Dan strikes again!

In August of 2013 (the summer Fr. Dan became a priest), I ran into Fr. Dan Fitzpatrick on Twitter who was actively promoting the often pornographic, rape filled violent show "Sons of Anarchy" on Twitter (he called it an "epic show").

See here:

When I questioned Fr. Dan about his not only viewing such shows, but promoting it on Twitter he at first laughed it off.  I mentioned the graphic sex, sin and violence the show is wrapped around and Fr. Dan got silent with me.  Then when another Catholic questioned him about viewing such material he deleted his twitter account, created a new twitter account and blocked myself and the other Catholic who dared to question his promoting such offensive viewing material.

I kept track of Fr. Dan since then (had to create another Twitter account to do it) and found him to be as clueless as the summer he became a priest.  In my opinion he hasn't learned or grown in the true Faith at all since 2013.

Yet this unorthodox priest is quite popular in pubs and with his podcasts where he "teaches" the faith (God help those who listen to him!):

Now, Fr. Dan is back.  This time he is threatening to sue a Catholic blogger, Clare over at Faith in Our Families Blog (just like another priest we know) for attempting to correct him in another error.  Read Clare's story at Restore-DC Catholicism and at Faith in Our Families (who confronted Fr. Dan in his numerous errors like supporting gay marriage in Ireland on his Facebook page -below- and promoting the belief that the Holy Spirit is female on Twitter- thanks to another liberal priest).

This priest simply will NOT tolerate ANYONE who dares to rebuke him or question him about anything!

Fr. Dan has got to be disciplined by the Church and PROPERLY taught the official teachings of the Church!  Catholics do NOT need this sort of intolerant bad example priest leading them into sin and heresy.  We don't need priests who teach their personal opinions- we can get that in any protestant community.  We need and must have priests who teach official Church doctrine- ALWAYS.

HOW did this guy become a priest in the first place??

Pray to God that Fr. Dan either changes his ways or is REMOVED from his position before he does any more damage. And pray for the souls of all the people who might be or have been, led astray by this and other wayward priests.

In Christ,

Julie @ Connecticut Catholic Corner

**If you are a Catholic blogger worried about being sued by a Catholic priest for questioning his actions or comments, please read this:


I found it interesting that Fr. Dan's sidekick, Fr. Marc first insults the Catholic blogger on Twitter saying "you're a hurtful abusive little woman that needs a hobby. You're no help to my church" and then speaks out of the other side of his mouth saying "You accomplish more by kind words and a courteous manner than by anger or sharp rebuke".

Fr. Marc's Twitter account (by the way, he deleted the insult from his account- clearly not before the blogger at Faith in our Families saw it-see her blog post).



I am not being sued, they have misread this post.


  1. @Julie, Thank you! God bless you, all near and dear to you, and his work at your hands.

  2. Dear Julie,

    Thank you for standing up to apostasy in our Catholic Church. Please continue with your love for Jesus- the Truth, the way, and the life. We need to pray for our priests and trust in Jesus. Jesus will judge everyone when each of us depart from this world. Let's have everyone do rosary and pray in the adoration room for Fr. Dan Fitzpatrick. After all, our goal is to bring as many souls to Jesus as possible, including praying for our enemies for conversion toward Christ. There are many seminary programs who are teaching apostasy during the formation of our priests. This is how Satan works. Corrupt as many priests as possible, so that many souls will be loss to damnation. Obviously, this priest needs lots of prayers. There are many priests who do not have a prayer life. Without prayer life, you are tormented with temptation of the world. All, please pray for our priests.

    Glory to God to the highest,

  4. Don't worry.... Bloggers will run this new priest off!

  5. Where do these nuts come from. I keep reading about how the younger priests are so orthodox...our hope for the future. (I've met a few of them in our diocese and they are impressive.) If bishops keep ordaining people like this, we will have no future. My favorite saying from St. John Chrysostom: “I do not think there are many among the Bishops that will be saved, but many more that perish.” It's right up there with, "The streets of Hell are paved with skulls of Bishops." This man knew what he was talking about.

  6. Fr. Marc's Tweet [@frlydensmith, 6:32PM, 29 May 2015] is more correct than he knows. No faithful Catholic belongs in an anthropocentric church.

  7. Have you sent a message to their Bishop about their behaviour or you can even true the Pope? You never know. You might even get an appropriate response. :)


This is a Catholic blog, please keep your comments respectful to my Faith even when you disagree.

Profanity will not be tolerated - it will be DELETED, so do not waste your time or mine.

Thank you and God bless...

Julie @ Connecticut Catholic Corner
