The Rite of Sodomy – Homosexuality and the Roman Catholic Church (Summer 2006) by Randy Engel

New Engel Publishing, Box 356, Export, PA  15632. 


While CN has mentioned this book at various times, CN has not yet published many quotations from this important book.  It should be reviewed in every religious publication, particularly theological journals.  Why are so many ignoring the book?

CN has published reports about homosexuality within the Roman Catholic Church ever since CN began 45 years ago.  All those who believe CN exaggerated the extent of homosexuality within the Roman Catholic Church should read this book.  The author documents his case with thousands of footnotes.

The editor knows of no one who has made a more thorough study of homosexuality in the Roman Catholic Church than Randy Engel.  The author writes in the introduction that the author’s decade-long journey into the homosexual maelstrom-without and within- the Roman Catholic Church “started with a re-read of Reverend Enrique T. Rueda’s 1982 definitive study of the homosexual movement in the United States, The Homosexual Network-Private Lives and Public Policy*, that provides a detailed description of the movement’s strategic inroads into organized religious bodies in America with a special case study of the movement’s infiltration and colonization of the Roman Catholic Church in the 1970s through the early 1980s” (ix-x).

[*Rueda’s The Homosexual Network was reviewed in the January 3, 1983 CN.  CN published a summary of the book by Enrique T. Rueda released by the Free Congress Research and Education Foundation.]


Randy Engel writes in the introduction that American sex researcher Alfred Kinsey was a homosexual (xiii).

Major Premise

“It is a major premise of this book that the infiltration and colonization of the seminary, priesthood and Church today by the Gay Liberation Movement poses a serious threat to the life of the Church – as real and dangerous as any enemy mole to a nation’s intelligence network.  The subversion of the Church and the undermining of its doctrines by the homosexual movement is real and ongoing and for the most part, uncontested by Church officials.  It needs to be stopped here and now and if not totally eradicated at least pushed back into its historical closet.  Co-existence with the Gay Liberation Movement is impossible for the Church.” (xix)

Intelligence Gathering

“The fact that this book took over a decade to research and five years to complete the final text, is as good an admission as any that the enterprise presented the author with a number of difficulties – both technical and personal.

“Heading the list of difficulties was the knowledge that it was going to be hard to prove the main thesis of my book – that there exists in the Roman Catholic Church today a well-organized and active international homosexual network whose roots go back to the turn of the 19th century and whose existence poses an eminent threat to the priesthood and religious life as well as the life of the Universal Church” (xix-xx).

“However, unlike Rueda, I have made some major exceptions to this general rule by naming certain prominent Church figures such as Francis Cardinal Spellman of New York, John Cardinal Wright of Boston, Joseph Cardinal Bernardin of Chicago and Pope Paul VI as having played an important role in the rise of homosexuality within the Catholic Church in modern times.  I don’t think it would have been possible for me to substantiate my charge of intergenerational homosexuality within the Church without identifying those individuals I believe to be directly responsible for the phenomenon.” (xxii).

Martin Luther

“Martin Luther charged the Carthusian monks with bringing the moral pollution to Germany from their Italian monasteries.  Later Protestant reformers would expand Luther’s accusation to include the entire Roman Church, popery, and of course, the Jesuits, who seem to have a knack of always getting themselves into trouble.  Naturally, English Catholics retorted that the vice had sprung from Protestant roots in Europe” (1).

Early Church Fathers Condemn the Vice of Sodomy

“Among the Fathers of the early Church who specifically condemned sodomy and pederasty in their writings and sermons were Saint Athanasius, Saint John Chrysostom and Saint Augustine” (40).

“Saint Athanasius did not hesitate to label his archenemy Arius, the handsome deposed priest of the Alexandrian Church an ‘effeminate.’  Arius’ heretical doctrine was championed by the powerful eunuch Eusebius, grand chamberlain of the Byzantine Imperial court under the Emperor Constantine and later his son, Constantius I” (40)


“The critical assessments of Tchaikovsky and other prominent homosexuals and pederasts of the 19th century found in this chapter are not intended to disparage their worldly accomplishments.  Nor are they meant to suggest that these men were totally lacking in certain admirable qualities.  And most certainly they are not to be interpreted as an indication of the ultimate eternal fate of their immortal souls, for as a 6th century philosopher once said, ‘the soul of a man is a far country, which cannot be approached or explored.’  God is the final judge, not man.  But this does not mean that we cannot judge a person’s outward acts or weigh the historical evidence for or against his character” (245).

Life Expectancy of Homosexuals

“The life expectancy of a homosexual in the United States and Canada is statistically significantly shorter than that of a heterosexual male.  Unless he is particularly talented or famous or wealthy, or he can find a partner with whom he can build a common life based primarily on friendship and common interests rather than sex, his life in ‘old age’ will be a lonely one.  Older peer partnerships are more stable than arrangements involving a much younger partner” (403).

Episcopal Bishop John Spong

“Ordained by the openly homosexual Episcopalian bishop John Spong of the Newark, Diocese, Williams died in 1992 at the age of 37 of AIDS-related complications” (482).

“Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Churches

 “The most prominent and politically active homosexual alternative church is the Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Churches (UFMCC) founded by Reverend Troy Perry, an avowed homosexual, in Los Angeles in 1968.  The UFMCC currently boasts a membership of 43,000 gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Christians in 300 congregations worldwide” (484).

National Conference of Catholic Bishops-United States Catholic

Conference-Homosexual Colonization of the NCCB/USCC

“Almost immediately after Bernardin’s appointment as Secretary General of the USCC, the process of homosexual colonization of the NCCB/USCC began.

One of the earliest pederast/homosexuals added to the USCC staff was Father James S. Rausch whom Bernardin appointed Assistant General Secretary in 1970” (566)

“The fact that Rausch, like Bernardin, was made a bishop even though his pederast/homosexual practices were well known in clerical circles is one indication that by the late 1960s and early ‘70s the homosexual network within the American hierarchy was already alive and functioning” (566).

Bishop Rausch in Phoenix

“In September 1978, the new Phoenix bishop made headlines when he dismissed the local Dignity chaplain, Father Andre Boulanger from his parish and declared him a heretic for claiming that 25% of all the priests in the Phoenix area were ‘basically homosexual.’  Rausch publicly stated that homosexual activity is ‘objectively evil.’  However in his own private life the bishop was acting out his homosexual fantasies with young male prostitutes, which is why in dealing with the homosexual network in the American hierarchy it is more important to look at what bishops do rather than what they say.

“A.W. Richard Sipe, who attended St. John’s Seminary in Collegeville, Minn. with Rausch in the early 1960s, has confirmed that Rausch had an ‘active sex life’ and that it involved ‘at least one minor.’  Sipe said he ‘interviewed a man (unnamed) at length who was a sexual partner’ of the bishop.  He (Sipe) was also aware that Rausch ‘was well acquainted with priests who were sexually active with minors (priests who had at least 30 minor victims each)’ and that the bishop has ‘referred at least one of his own victims to these priests” (567).

The Colonization of Catholic Seminaries

“Prior to Vatican II, such a large-scale in-house subversive network would have been impossible. Today it is reality.  Homosexuality has become an institutionalized feature of many diocesan seminaries and houses of religious formation.  Moreover, there are seminary rectors and superiors who have opened their doors to the Homosexual Collective for the purpose of recruitment and propaganda” (571).

Crisis in the Priesthood and Religious Life

“In virtually every way, the problems besetting the seminarians in the United States before, during and after Vatican II found their parallel in the crisis that faced the ordained clergy and religious orders.

“In 1965, 1,575 new priests were ordained.  In 2002, the number was 450.

“While the number of priests in the United States more than doubled to 58,000, between 1930 and 1965, since then, that number has fallen to 45,713 in 2003.

“Statistics don’t say everything-but they do say something.

“Between 1964 and 1978, the Church under Pope Paul VI was literally hemorrhaging from the massive desertion of thousands of ordained clergy.  The resignation rate prior to 1966 was one-half of one percent.   Ten years later it had increased eleven times with twice as many order priests forsaking vows as diocesan priests” (576).

The Kansas City Star Series on Priests and AIDS

“The Star was not the first national paper to cover the issue of AIDS in the Catholic priesthood, but it nevertheless received a remarkable degree of national and international coverage.

“Thomas reported that at least 300 priests have died of AIDS/HIV complications since 1987, a rate at least four times that of the national death rate from AIDS among the general U.S. male population.  Richard Sipe, who was interviewed for the series, said he believed that the number of Catholic clerics who had died of AIDS was closer to 750, and New Jersey psychiatrist Dr. Joseph Barone put the number at 1000, nearly 11 times the rate of the general population.

“Thomas stated that the number of priests who are living with AIDS/HIV was also in the hundreds.

“The primary means of contraction of AIDS by Catholic clerics was reported by at least three interviewees to be homosexual acts (sodomy), although as in the case of Bishop Moore, intravenous drug use by homosexual priests may play a secondary role.

“According to Thomas, in almost all cases priests and religious dying and living with AIDS/HIV were well-treated by their bishops and religious superiors as long as they were willing to keep silent about their condition.  Tensions broke out, however, when homosexual priests went public with their illness.

“The Star series indicated that falsification of death certificates by Church authorities for Catholic clerics who died of AIDS was the rule rather than the exception especially in the early days of AIDS” (580).

The Cardinal O’Connell and Cardinal Spellman Legacy

“An ‘open secret’ is a secret hidden in plain sight.’  The homosexual lives of Francis Cardinal Spellman of New York and William Cardinal O’Connell of Boston were just such a secret, and remained so even after their deaths” (615).

“The rules that guarded Cardinal Spellman’s (open) secret life as a homosexual were not unique to him.  During the first half of the 20th century, the same rules applied to all prominent public figures caught up in the vice including many popular entertainers of the period” (652).

An Age of Homosexual Chic

“Any suggestion that the archbishop was engaged in an immoral life would have been greeted with utter disbelief and contempt.  The very idea of questioning Spellman’s character especially in the context of so odious a vice would have instinctively triggered memories of Maria Monk and other scurrilous anti-Roman tracts that fueled anti-Catholicism a century before.

In short, to attack Spellman was to attack the Roman Catholic Church.

“This siege mentality of the Catholic laity and clergy and religious when combined with an overall ignorance of homosexuality and the existence of a hidden but flourishing ‘gay’ life in New York, made Spellman’s double life possible.

“As in other large urban metropolises in the United States, homosexual life in New York was played out in a variety of ways depending largely on one’s income and social status.

“There was always Times Square, Central Park and Greenwich Village – all favorite places for cruising.  One could pick up a partner for the night at one of the many gay bars and cafes that lined Broadway, go ‘slumming’ down to Harlem or take a weekend excursion to Fire Island.

“However, the undisputed center of the chic gay life in Manhattan was Broadway and the musical theater”(652-653).

“Within the New York Chancery itself there was an elite corps of priests who made up Spellman’s silent circle.  They included priests with whom the cardinal had sexual relations, as well as those who kept their silence out of personal loyalty for Spellman, to prevent scandal that would injure Holy Mother Church, or simply out of fear of jeopardizing their own clerical careers.  For those priests who served as confessor to the cardinal there was the absolute silencer-the seal of confession.

“Outside this immediate clerical coterie there were other members of the American hierarchy and priests and religious superiors in the United States and in Rome who knew of Spellman’s sexual preference for young men”(654).

Terence Cooke – The Heir Apparent

“Terence James Cooke lived clerical life on the fast track.  He went from being Father Cooke, personal secretary to Cardinal Spellman in 1957, to Monsignor and Papal Chamberlain, to Vice Chancellor, to Chancellor, to Auxiliary Bishop to Cardinal in a record time of 10 years without ever spending as much as one day as the pastor of a parish.  He was Spellman’s chosen successor – a Bronx boy who made good” (662).

Bishop Emerson Moore

“The circumstances surrounding Moore’s active homosexual life played out under the nose of Cardinal Cooke, Moore’s death from AIDS in Minnesota, and the falsification of Moore’s death certificate under Cooke’s successor, John Cardinal O’Connor, has never been explained.  There is also the question as to whether or not there was a sexual relationship between Cooke and Emerson that would explain Moore’s rapid rise in New York ecclesiastical politics.  These loose ends need to be cleared up especially in light of Cardinal Cooke’s cause of canonization.

“Another matter that needs to be explained is the incredible case of the St. Matthew Community that came into existence under Cardinal Cooke’s watch.

“A Religious Community of Homosexuals

“Were it not for the pioneer research of Father Enrique Rueda, Catholics would never have heard of the St. Matthew Community that operated out of the Diocese of Brooklyn during the late 1970s and early 1980s.

“The St. Matthew Community was established as a Roman Catholic religious community of homosexuals for homosexuals.  Let me repeat this.  The St. Matthew Community was established as a Roman Catholic religious community of homosexuals for homosexuals” (664-665).

“According to Wanderer reporter Paul Likoudis, throughout the 1980s and 1990s, the Diocese of Albany was plagued with clerical and religious sex scandals including homosexual priests with live-in lovers; priests dying of AIDS from homosexual affairs; a lesbian nun who underwent artificial insemination; a priest who underwent a sex-change operation; and numerous official cover-ups of clerical sexual abuse cases that involved underthe-table payoffs to victims in the form of untraceable blank checks” (669).

The O’Connell-Spellman Legacy Continues

“The homosexual legacy of Francis Cardinal Spellman and William Cardinal O’Connell of Boston has followed us into the 21st century.  We are currently on the third generation of clerical homosexuals and pederasts that can be directly tied to Spellman and O’Connell and other homosexual prelates of the early 20th century, and if Section IV is any indication, there will be many more generations of clerical homosexuals and pederasts to follow unless Rome acts to disinherit the heirs of perversion from the Catholic priesthood and religious life” (714).

Archbishop Rembert Weakland

Rembert Weakland quickly became one of the darlings of the liberal hierarchy of the United States” (823).

“Archbishop Weakland was one of the first supporters of the forays of the Homosexual Collective into the Catholic Church in America.  In Rueda’s The Homosexual Network, published in 1982, Weakland’s role in assisting the Collective to advance its agenda in AmChurch is well documented.

“As reported by Rueda, Weakland’s pro-homosexual position including active support for pro-homosexual legislation is a matter of public record and his contribution to the Homosexual Movement has been acknowledged by all major national homosexual groups including the National Gay Task Force, Dignity and New Ways Ministry.

“Weakland’s notorious homosexual apologia from his Herald of Hope column, ‘The Archbishop Shares: Who is Our Neighbor?’ that appeared in the Catholic Herald Citizen, the diocesan weekly for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee on July 19, 1980, is filled with vintage pro-homosexual Newspeak.  Weakland employs pro-homosexualist linguistics throughout the text and defends every tenet of the Homosexual Collective from ‘homosexuality is inborn and irreversible’ to ‘gay is good.’  The Archbishop consistently uses the term ‘gay people’ when referring to homosexuals.  His essay undermines the Bible’s condemnation of sodomy and debunks the idea that homosexuals prey on young boys. The pro-homosexual article appeared the same year that Archbishop Weakland himself engaged in a homosexual affair with a layman” (824).

“According to writer-researcher Robert A. Sungenis, ‘Out of 36 priests who were named as child molesters in the archdiocese, 21 of them are still in the Milwaukee area and 6 of those have active assignments.  Not one of the 36 has ever been so much as questioned, and no parishioners, except the victims, knew the names of these priests.

“While the Archdiocesan public relations department touted Weakland’s model program for handling clerical sex offenders, the Archbishop was shuffling offenders from parish to parish” (825).

Joseph Cardinal Bernardin

“This segment on Joseph Cardinal Bernardin was originally incorporated into the previous chapter on homosexual members of the American hierarchy.  However, because of his extraordinary influence on AmChurch, I decided Cardinal Bernardin deserved a chapter all his own.

“To do real justice to Cardinal Bernardin and his entourage of clerical homosexuals and pederasts and ancillary hangers-on who made up the Chicago-Washington, D.C.  Homosexual/Pederast Axis would require more than one full size book.

“This highly condensed summary of information on the role played by Bernardin in the building of the Homosexual Collective within AmChurch is intended to dispel the fiction that the late Cardinal Bernardin managed to fool all the people all the time.

“That Bernardin’s alleged sexual penchant for young men still remains an open issue even today, ten years after the cardinal’s death, is reflected in the remarks made by writer-therapist A. W. Richard Sipe in his keynote address.  ‘View From the Eye of the Storm’ given on February 23, 2003 to the Linkup National Conference in Louisville, Ky.

“According to Sipe, years before Bernardin was charged with sexual abuse by Steven Cook in 1993, ‘several priests who were associates of Bernardin prior to his move to Chicago revealed that they had ‘partied’ together; they talked about their visits to the Josephinum to socialize with seminarians.’

‘It is a fact that Bernardin’s accuser (Cook) did not ever retract his allegations of abuse by anyone’s account other than Bernardin,’ said Sipe.  He also acknowledged a report that, before his death, Cook had reached a settlement in the $3 million range from the Archdiocese of Chicago [Cincinnati?]” (889).

Homosexuality in Religious Orders

“It is one of the truly tragic marks of our age that many Religious Orders, once the glory of the Roman Catholic Church, have become vehicles for the destruction of the Catholic priesthood and the epicenter of the Homosexual Collective within the Church.

“The charge that the Homosexual Collective in the United States took root in Catholic religious institutes and congregations before the diocesan priesthood can be verified from a number of different sources including statements from both opponents and proponents of the Homosexual Collective.

“For example, former Oblate priest Richard Wagner, who went from a religious to a producer of homosexual porno films, affirmed in a 1981 study ‘Gay Catholic Priests,’ that the homosexual movement in the Catholic Church began in religious orders not the diocesan priesthood.

“In 1982, in The Homosexual Network, Father Rueda documented the important role that male religious orders have played in embracing, sustaining, and financing the Homosexual Collective.  These orders include the Jesuits, Franciscans, Dominicans, Salvatorians, Benedictines, Christian Brothers, Xaverian Brothers, Holy Cross Priests, Paulists, Capuchins, Oblates of St. Francis de Sales and Oblates of Mary Immaculate.  At least 57 U.S.-based religious orders, institutes and congregations have publicly supported the pro-homosexual activities and programs of the Catholic Coalition for Gay Civil Rights and/or New Ways Ministry” (919-920).

Father Richard John Neuhaus* and the Father Marcial Maciel Case

“Fr. Maciel to date has had the backing of what can be called the ‘Catholic Establishment’ in the United States.  Among the members of the Establishment who have spoken out in defense of the Legionaries and of Fr. Maciel in particular are Dear Hudson, editor and publisher of Crisis magazine, William Donohue, President of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, Father Richard John Neuhaus, President of Religion and Public Life, Professor Mary Ann Glendon of Harvard University Law School and papal biographer George Weigel. In her testimonial of May 23, 2002, Glendon said, ‘I simply cannot reconcile those old stories with the man’s (Maciel) radiant holiness.’  Father Neuhaus, a convert to the Church, ties the accusations against Maciel to the liberal ideology of author Jason Berry and dismisses them both” (ft.250,1000).

[*The CN editor grew up in New York City (1933-1957) and is somewhat familiar with some of the names and places mentioned in the book, including the homosexual Cardinal Spellman.  Several years ago a Roman Catholic priest in New York called CN several times.  He told CN that CN was just scratching the surface about homosexuality in the Roman Catholic Church.  He knew Father Richard Neuhaus who is briefly mentioned in The Rite of Sodomy.

CN filed charges of false doctrine vs. Father Neuhaus in 1969.  Neuhaus rejected the inerrancy of the Bible and justification by faith alone.  In 1973 Neuhaus tried to soften an overture the editor’s congregation attempted to get the LCMS’s 1973 convention to adopt declaring homosexuality a sin.  The LCMS did adopt the overture from the editor’s congregation.

Neuhaus, who lives in New York, should now be in the forefront of those exposing and opposing homosexuality in the Roman Catholic Church.]

New Ways Ministry-A Study in Subversion

“New Ways Ministry was founded by Sister Jeannine Gramick, formerly with the School Sisters of Notre Dame and now with the Sisters of Loretto, and Father Robert Nugent of the Society of the Divine Savior.  Second, perhaps, only to the Washington D. C.-based national homosexual group Dignity, New Ways has been the most influential of all the Homosexual Collective’s auxiliaries within the Catholic Church.  It has served as a critical link between the lesbian feminist covens of female religious orders and the ‘gay’ priesthood and the secular Homosexual Collective” (10003).

“Bondings – A Newsletter That’s Hard to Beat

“The ideology of New Ways is best expressed through its newsletter Bondings, a title with decidedly sadomasochist implications.

“Bondings, published in newspaper format, contains articles on homosexuality and related fields with advertisements for New Ways publications and programs including lesbian retreats and alternative forms of spirituality.  Among the American bishops quoted ad nausem in Bondings are Bishop Thomas Gumbleton, Bishop Walter Sullivan, Bishop Matthew Clark, Bishop Joseph K. Symons, Bishop Kenneth Untener, and Archbishop Rembert Weakland.

“The newsletter provides advice for the lovelorn on guidelines for same-sex ‘marriage’ and gives directions to ‘gay friendly’ churches.  Bondings also covers the ‘gay’ international scene with an especially critical eye of all things Roman.  The importance of gay and lesbian symbolism was illustrated in a story on the rainbow sash fashioned by French couturier Jean Charles de Castelbajac for Pope John Paul II when the Holy Father visited Paris in August 1997. 

“New Ways ‘homophobia’ and ‘buildings bridges’ workshops are systematically covered as are the latest political issues on the Homosexual Collective’s agenda” (1015).

The Homointern in AmChurch

“One of the still unanswered and perhaps unanswerable questions that has arisen in connection with the Communist infiltration of the Catholic Church in the U.S. is whether or not Soviet subversion was a major factor in rise of homosexuality among Catholic priests and religious, especially after the Second Vatican Council?

“We know that the Soviet Intelligence used homosexuals as full-time agents to compromise important targets who were attracted to their own sex.  Quite probably, there were homosexuals among the Soviet agents sent to penetrate Catholic seminaries and houses of religion from the 1930s onward and that some of these agents rose to high office in AmChurch.

“Also, in so far as Communism was able to help move the Vatican II Revolution forward, it can be said to have been a contributing factor in the doctrinal and moral breakdown of AmChurch that permitted the homosexual network to flourish in the Church” (1114).

“In conclusion, therefore, while the Church’s enemies from without, including International Communism, contributed to the overall demoralization of the priesthood and religious life in the United States, the main impetus for the pro-homosexual paradigm shift in the Church in the second half of the 20th century came from within – in the form of expanded hierarchical, diocesan and religious order homosexual networks that flowed from the Cardinal O’Connell and Spellman legacy – and by the election of a homosexual to the Chair of Peter” (1115).

A Homosexual Pope

“Following his installation on June 30, 1963, Pope Paul VI pledged to complete the work of the Second Vatican Council begun by Pope John XXIII under his (Montini’s) instruction and guidance.  And so he did.

“The 15-year pontificate of Paul VI was marked by a series of unprecedented crises and betrayals as has rarely been seen in the Roman Catholic Church at any point in its 2000 year-old history.

“The betrayals associated with the Second Vatican Council were put into motion by Pope John XXIII, who used his authority to facilitate the restructuring of the ten Conciliar Commissions.  Pope John jettisoned all the original schemas drawn up by the Council’s Preparatory Commission over a three-year period, save one, the schema on the Sacred Liturgy.  Under Paul VI, the original schemas were replaced by new texts in keeping with the planned agenda that had been worked out by Archbishop Montini and the Rhine Group before the opening of the Council” (1147-1148).

“The Unprecedented Fraternization of the Church with heretics, schismatic and other traditional enemies of the Church including Communists, Freemasons, Zionists and functionaries of the so-called New World Order” (1150).

“All of the above mentioned actions associated with the reign of Pope Paul VI had catastrophic repercussions for the Church.

“Also, each in its own way benefited the rapidly expanding Homosexual Collective both within and without the Church during the Post-Conciliar era and each played a role in the paradigm shift in the Church’s position on the vice of homosexuality that flowed out of the Second Vatican Council.

“Yet there still remains one further factor that needs to be considered when examining the Homosexual Collective’s extraordinary success in colonizing the Catholic Church in the United States and abroad, and that is the matter of Pope Paul VI’s alleged own habituation to the vice of homosexuality” (1151-1152).

The Case of Homosexuality Against Pope Paul VI

“It is significant that the Homosexual Collective’s identification of Pope Paul VI as a homosexual took place long before the subject of homosexuality became part of the American consciousness.  In other words, the rumor that Montini was sexually attracted to young men was part of the gossip-line of the Collective long before charges of homosexuality were publicly brought against the pope” (1152).

“The Curtain Comes Down

 “There can be no question Pope Paul VI’s homosexuality was instrumental in the paradigm shift that saw the rise of the Homosexual Collective in the Catholic Church in the United States, at the Vatican and around the world in the mid-20th century.

“Pope Paul VI played a decisive role in the selection and advancement of many homosexual members of the American hierarchy including Joseph Cardinal Bernardin, Teraence Cardinal Cooke, John Cardinal Wright and Archbishop Rembert Weakland and Bishops George H. Guifoyle, Francis Mugavero, Joseph Hart, Joseph Ferario, James Rausch and their heirs.

“The knowledge that a homosexual sat in the Chair of Peter – knowledge that spread like wild-fire on the ‘gay’ gossip circuit – would certainly have served as an inducement for homosexual men to aspire to the priesthood and even prompt them to contemplate the unthinkable – a religious order or community composed exclusively of sodomites.

“Most importantly, the long-guarded quasi-secret of Paul VI’s homosexual life has, for decades, contributed to the silence and cover-up by the American hierarchy on the issue of homosexuality in general and the criminal activities of pederast priests in particular.

“But it is a secret no longer.

“The final piece of the puzzle has been put in place.

“Our Lady Fatima, pray for us.”



News From Rome Not Much Better


“At the Vatican, Pope Benedict XVI has appointed ‘gay friendly’ Archbishop William Levada, former Archbishop of San Francisco to head the Scared Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and has awarded him the red hat.  Levada in turn, with the help of ‘gay friendly’ Cardinal Roger Mahony of Los Angeles, has secured his former archdiocese for his boyhood buddy ‘gay friendly’ Archbishop George ‘Brokeback’ Niederauer. Levada and Nieberauer were classmates at St. John’s Seminary and pederasty training camp in Camarillo, Calif., and they co-own a retirement condo in Long Beach.  Niederauer insists there is no link between pederasty and homosexuality and is a proponent of ordaining ‘gays’ as long as they are ‘celibate’.

“The homosexual activist group ‘Outrage! London’ is continuing its campaign begun in April 1998 to obtain ‘inside knowledge’ on the ‘sexuality’ of Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI, with details that can be corroborated.  ‘We do not know whether Ratzinger is gay:  but, if he is, he deserves to be ousted because he is arguably the most homophobic of all Vatican leaders,’ claims the Outrage Queer Intelligence Service.

“Rome correspondents report that the new pope has acquired expensive taste in designer shoes and accessories, a reputation for ‘slightly eccentric behavior and ‘a penchant for disguise.’  During Christmas 2005, the pope was photographed showing off a red medieval fur-lined hat – a picture that can only be described as overtly camp.  One month later, La Stampa reported that the pope has been secretly visiting his old residence at 1 Piazza Citta Leonina disguised in black clerical robes in the company of another accessory – his very handsome 48 year old private secretary and traveling companion, Don George Ganswein.

“Most importantly, on November 29, 2005, the Sacred Congregation for Catholic Education (for Seminaries and Institutes of Study) issued the long-awaited universal directive ‘Concerning the Criteria of Vocational Discernment Regarding Persons with Homosexual Tendencies in View of Their Admission to Seminaries and Holy Orders.’ The document signed by Cardinal Zenon Grocholewski, Prefect for the Congregation and Archbishop John Michael Miller, CSB, Secretary, and approved by Pope Benedict XVI, clearly does not affirm the absolute ban against ordaining homosexuals, pederasts and habituated onanists found in the 1961 Instruction ‘Careful Selection And Training Of Candidates For The States Of Perfection And Sacred Orders.’ In fact, the 1961 Instruction did not even merit a footnote in the new directive” (1171, 1172).

“The cardinal went out of his way to state that the norms expressed in the document do not apply to already ordained homosexual priests, which is a backhanded way of acknowledging that Pope Benedict XVI, like his predecessor, Pope John Paul II, has no plans to clean house and mount a serious attack on the Homosexual Collective within the Roman Catholic priesthood and religious life” (1172).
