On June 4, 1986, Abp. Peter Gerety formally stepped down as the head of the archdiocese of Newark, paving the way for his young successor, Theodore McCarrick. Speaking of the then 56-year-old McCarrick, Abp. Gerety said, "I believe it is time for a younger man to take over the reins of office here in Newark." He also said that McCarrick's "outstanding success" in the diocese of Metuchen "augurs well for the future of this archdiocese."
As recent history well notes, McCarrick's move to the archdiocese of Newark would spell disaster for souls, marking the beginning of a long trail of scandals and ruined vocations. Amid the sexual advances made toward seminarians, the notorious beach house bed-parties, and general rise in financial and personal prominence, McCarrick's legacy of notoriety can now include the spread of openly satanic music.
Founded in 1948, WSOU 89.5 FM is a student-run radio station owned and operated by the Catholic University of New Jersey, Seton Hall. Seton Hall, in turn, is a diocesan university belonging to the archdiocese of Newark. Mere months after McCarrick assumed the office of Newark's new archbishop, WSOU changed its broadcasting format to hard rock and heavy metal.
On WSOU's "about us" page, the station boasts that every week its signal "reaches all five boroughs of New York City and much of northern and central of New Jersey" to a market of about 120,000 listeners through the airwaves and thousands more through online streaming. Claiming that its core demographic includes boys as young as 12 years, WSOU says, "Since 1986, WSOU has programmed a hard rock format and the station has developed a national reputation as an industry leader in breaking new bands."
But the description of "hard rock" hardly illustrates the depths of depravity to which this station has fallen. WSOU claims to be committed to "strengthening Seton Hall's Catholic and academic identity" and encouraging "students and listeners to pursue a quest for lifelong learning sustained by Catholic values." But the reality is that WSOU is broadcasting bands and songs that are blasphemous, openly satanic, promote sacrilege, promote the murder and mutilation of women and children and the slaughter of Christians.
What we are about to show you is extremely disturbing and upsetting, so if you don't feel the need to see the evidence of the charges we just leveled against WSOU, please stop here and jump to the bottom of the article to contact the various dioceses of New Jersey, Seton Hall and the regents and trustees of Seton Hall and DEMAND that WSOU be immediately pulled from the airwaves and the radio station shut down, completely.
WSOU's playlists are uploaded to a website called spinitron.com/WSOU. Analyzing the playlist and reviewing the bands and songs listed reveals that WSOU's regular broadcast is completely filled with songs that advocate an Odinist slaughter of Christians, the graphic and gratuitous murder and mutilation of women and children and bands whose album covers are covered with satanic, sacrilegious and disturbing imagery.
