LGBTI+ people are ‘infected zombies’, an Irish priest has told his parishioners.


According to the Irish Mirror, Brother Tom Forde, of the Friary in Kilkenny, also used his homily to inform them that those who are pro-contraception and pro-choice are the ‘living dead’.

Forde listed movies and television series featuring zombies, pointing out that although these were examples of ‘ridiculous’ horror stories, some people are ‘physically alive but spiritually dead, morally rotten or at least infected’.


He said: “We see this when the mask slips and someone we thought a friend is revealed as a fiend, full of anger, spite, malice, lust, or pride we had not seen before. We see it in self-destructive, irrational behaviour.

“It is visible in the abuse of drugs and alcohol, in adultery, fornication, and homosexuality.


“As well as in acceptance of abortion and contraception and in the move to legalise euthanasia.

“In the zombie genre, once you’re bitten you’re infected and there’s no hope.


“The only way to deal with the monsters is to stab or shoot them in the brain. Otherwise they are merciless, relentless, and unstoppable.

“Zombies, thank God, do not actually exist, but I would suggest spiritual-zombiehood does.”


Forde has since refused to comment on his homily, which he gave last Saturday (8 June).
