#DraintheVaticanSwamp -- And the Diocesan Swamps Too!

Gay orgies in the heart of the Vatican, a Spanish priest, Tomas Herrera,  bragging about carrying a condom around in his pocket, a proselytizer for the gay lifestyle appointed to the Vatican communications office, out and proud gay priests (here, herehere - how many examples do you want?) announcing their disordered inclinations. And then of course there are the gays in the hierarchy. Archbishop Weakland comes to mind, but there were and are others.

Many of these gay priests are actively teaching and preaching. They certainly aren't teaching orthodoxy on issues of sexual morality! (Actually, there are some who hide behind orthodoxy. Generally there are other signs that flash the caution light.)

So, while all these priests scandalize the faithful while remaining in good standing, Fr. Haley continues wandering in the desert, a man with no church.

If this isn't the setting for the chastisement I don't what is! Which makes me agree with those who ask the question, Is something coming? Matthew 24 seems to be seeing fulfillment in our days.

Keep watch and pray. Be ready every day. We may not know the day and the hour, but we ought to be able to recognize signs of a coming storm.

Do You Ever Wonder How We Got into the Mess We're In?

Well here's one answer:

Gregory Baum is a Sodomite! What a surprise ...

Not only a sodomite, but a multiple vow breaker! He violated his priestly vows. Then he married and violated his marital vows by committing adultery with an active priest who was breaking his vows. 

Yikes!

Fr. Anthony Cipolla - Part III: "Demons in Roman Collars" and Their Enablers


The Sex Abuse Case Against Father Anthony J. Cipolla
Part III – The Pittsburgh Diocese – A Study of Lies, Deceit and Treachery
By Randy Engel

Introduction

As I indicated earlier in this series, the Pittsburgh Diocese’s mishandling and cover-up of the Father Anthony Cipolla Case in the late 1970s was the rule not the exception in the second-half of the 20th century. For almost every Catholic diocese in the world, the first concern of the Corporate Sole of each diocese regarding the management of clerical sex abuse, especially those involving pederasty – adult homosexual acts performed upon minor boys – was the avoidance of scandal at all costs, most especially the cost of justice. This misguided mindset, which was evident not only in the diocesan priesthood but in religious orders as well, was reinforced by the Vatican itself through generations of “progressive” popes in the Post-Conciliar era following the Second Vatican Council.

Randy Engel: Fr. Anthony Cipolla Part II -- Life and Death

The Sex Abuse Case Against Father Anthony J. Cipolla
Part II The Life and Death of a Pederast Priest
By Randy Engel

Introduction
Father Anthony Joseph Cipolla was born on August 29, 1943 in Rochester, PA, a borough of Beaver County.  He was the youngest of five children – Ann, Vincent, Genevra, Anita, his twin sister, and Anthony –  born to Ambrose and Albina (Natale) Cipolla.                                                           His first parish, where he received his First Holy Communion on June 17, 1954, was St. Titus Church in Aliquippa. It was a heavily mixed ethnic church with German-born, Italian- speaking Father Edward Zauner serving as its long-time pastor. Fr. Cipolla, a country boy, gave credit for his vocation to Fr.  Zauner and to his mother, who by every account was a devout Catholic and a kind, generous soul.
That same year, 1954, due to the expanding population in the area, Pittsburgh Bishop John Dearden established a new parish, Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church, in nearby Aliquippa under Father Cornelius J. Finneran. A small chapel was built on the site in September 1954, but the church was not completed until 1987. It was here that the young Anthony Cipolla learned his catechism, went to confession and attended Mass. And it was here that the Mass of Christian Burial was said for the 73-year-old priest following a fatal auto accident on August 30, 2016.

How Abusers Groom their Targets: Warning -- Graphic Content (no pictures)

Many Catholics believe the sex abuse scandals are a thing of the past. They aren't. A number of dioceses continue to coddle homosexual priests who maintain same-sex relationships, enjoy pornography, embezzle parish funds and are a real threat to the young. As recently as last Spring, a group of laity in Miami at St. Rose of Lima put together a dossier on their pastor, Fr. Pedro Corces, who was cavorting with his gay boyfriend and making changes at the school that concerned parents. He gave his boyfriend who had an extensive criminal background a maintenance job at the parish. 

When they took their information to Bishop Thomas Wenski did he thank the parents? No, it was deja vu: attack the messengers! He excoriated the laity, conducted his own investigation, and exonerated the priest in early July although he asked him to resign as pastor. Interestingly, Corces was also vocations director from 1996-2006. Now who exactly do you think he was bringing into the seminaries? More about Fr. Corces here. I bring this up because the case below is an old one. But what happened to the family and the "grooming" techniques used to molest the children is as typical today as it was then. Find a vulnerable family, befriend them especially the young boys, take them on outings alone, and when the timing is right molest them. Sometimes the children are threatened not to tell and the abuse can go on for years. This case is heartbreaking, but things like this are still going on. And Wenski's behavior in Miami shows that the Child Protection Programs are, in many cases, a farce!

Archbishop Thomas Wenski: For Shame!

The Immutable Archbishop Thomas Wenski


Archbishop Thomas Wenski
The immutable Thomas Wenski, Archbishop of Miami, is in the news again with charges of “slanderous gossip, calumny, detraction” against the faithful. It wasdéjà vu reading the Miami Herald article since when Archbishop Wenski of Miami was Bishop Wenski of Orlando from 2004 to 2010, and we wrote the Orlando Truth newsletter, he vilified us with identical charges.

At one point Bishop Wenski said that I was on the verge of excommunication. “ME?!” I replied. “How about excommunicating your heretical Chancery nuns and the Orlando priest we caught going to an out of state nude gay resort with his priest lover from another diocese?” (That priest still remains the pastor at his same Orlando Diocesan parish which has an elementary school.) Admittedly, while reading this article I chuckled at a few sentences which brought back joyful memories from those years, especially the part about the private investigator “going through the church rectory trash”. Those were the days. 


But nothing has changed. Archbishop Wenski acts exactly the same and speaks the same as when the Orlando Truth was in active combat with him. Just as when he was in Orlando and blamed the Orlando Truth for “sinful behaviors,” he is not upset with what Fr. Pedro Corces, Pastor at Miami Shores’ St. Rose of Lima has done but that his – the priest’s – sinful behaviors of sexual impropriety were uncovered! “The church isn’t upset by the sins of their priests but by the fact that the faithful have had the audacity, the temerity, to bring this up,” says Rosa Armesto, the attorney representing St. Rose of Lima parishioners and parents of children in the school there after Archbishop Wenski wrote a letter asking people to pray for “the children who have been dis-edified by the spectacle of adults behaving badly”. Hmmm – how about Archbishops behaving badly?

To add fire to the furnace Fr. Corces wanted a lay principal for the school therefore ordered the ouster of the IHM nuns whose order had been at the parish school since 1981.

As one person said, “There are no excuses for Archbishop Wenski’s conduct and disgraceful responses to these well documented activities. His only concern seems to be to get promoted to higher levels within the Church. Sad! Sad! Sad!”

Another Whistleblower Priest Gets the Shaft

Fr. John Gallagher
While the bishop cover-ups of abusive priests is supposed to be behind us, in some places they continue. And whistleblower priests who, like Fr. James Haley, expose sexual scandals, continue to face persecution. Here's the latest from Palm Beach, FL, a diocese with a history of scandal and a reputation for being riddled with homosexual clergy.

Fr. John Gallagher, an Irish priest, serving in Florida reported a visiting Indian priest for showing multiple pornographic pictures of naked boys to a 14-year-old boy. The diocese wanted him "disappeared" but Father called the cops. And here's what happened next.

Diocese of Palm Beach Retaliates against Priest who Exposed Minor's Sex Abuse 

You can get a better idea of Fr. Gallagher by reading a 2006 interview in the Sun Sentinel. He sounds like a good priest doing his best to shepherd the flock. Please pray for him.

See more here including a video of the priest.
