According to financial records analyzed by Church Militant, the archdiocese of New York has lost more than $122 million in the last eight years in operating expenses for Archdiocesan Services. They're cutting Masses owing to a lack of parishioners and are shaking down remaining parishioners for $200 million, as they financially prepare to pay out millions of dollars for gay clerical sex abuse.

One such homosexual priest, Fr. Peter Miqueli, was found guilty by the Bronx district attorney of wrongfully aquiring $22,450 from one parish to allegedly pay for drug-fueled encounters with his gay-for-pay prostitute. The diocese, meanwhile, has mortgaged $100 million in archdiocesan property in a desperate attempt to build up a sex abuse fund that findings show was rooted in the clerical sex abuse perpetrated by their homosexual priests.

According to the U.S. bishop's (USCCB) annual report this year on clerical sex abuse, released Thursday, the report confirms earlier findings that the priest sex abuse crisis is a homosexual problem.

According to the report, "Eighty-one percent of the victims were male," and when the age of the victim was determined, only "one in ten were under age ten." The report further confirmed that these findings were "similar to those reported for the year 2015."

The John Jay College of Criminal Justice reported similar findings. After the sex abuse crisis exploded in the media in 2002 following the Boston Globe exposé, the USCCB created a National Review Board and tasked the John Jay College to conduct an investigation into clerical sex abuse. The College's 2004 report revealed that 80 percent of the victims were male and almost 90 percent were post-pubescent.

A report issued in 2011 affirmed these facts, finding 81 percent of sex abuse victims were boys of which 78 percent were post-pubescent.

Homosexual clerics are guilty of establishing a need for a sex abuse fund. They're also guilty of driving away the flock with scandal and starving the remaining sheep with a failure in Church teaching.
