BALTIMORE ( - A fiery persecuted priest is calling U.S. bishops to account for corruption and abuse within the Catholic Church.

Wisconsin priest Fr. James Altman sent a scorching message to Catholic prelates today at Church Militant's "Bishops: Enough Is Enough" prayer rally in Baltimore. The rally is within throwing distance of the location of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops' annual fall meeting.

Father Altman began with the Sign of the Cross, encouraging faithful Catholics to stand against the bureaucratic bishops' conference as David stood against Goliath.

Altman then motioned to the adjacent Courtyard Marriott hosting the bishops' annual conference and quoted George Lucas' Obi-Wan Kenobi: "You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy."

"To you, the faithful — rest assured," Altman told the crowd. "Neither I nor anyone at Church Militant or any other speaker today ever will forget the wretched boy-molesters and those who covered it up and who, to this day, by their silence, cover up the sorority sisters amongst them."

Their silence is complicity for the corruption and sacrilege taking place in the ranks of clerics.

He also chastised the "Pachamama Pope" for rehabilitating disgraced ex-cardinal and homopredator Theodore McCarrick.

Altman insisted that halfway-decent bishops in America should not be commended but rather condemned, as "their silence is complicity" for the corruption and sacrilege taking place in the ranks of clerics.

He did, however, laud Bp. Joseph Strickland of the diocese of Tyler, Texas, who has been a conservative voice amongst the bishops and recently affirmed Chruch teaching on worthy reception of the Holy Eucharist.

The fiery La Crosse priest then blasted Chicago's Cdl. Blase Cupich for allowing Lori Lightfoot — "the non-Catholic, same-sex married, pro-abortion mayor of Chicago" — to receive Our Lord's Body and Blood.

Not only are U.S. bishops allowing sham Catholics like Biden and Nancy Pelosi to continue receiving Holy Communion while openly supporting abortion, they're also permitting them to mandate the abortion-tainted jab.

Repent or burn in the hottest fires of Hell.

"The jab mandate is evil," Altman stated emphatically. "So here's a memo to Blase Cupich and every other monster in a miter who mandated the jab: Repent or burn in the hottest fires of Hell. ... How dare you!"

Father Altman came into the spotlight last year, proclaiming in a bombshell video that "you cannot be Catholic and be a Democrat — period." In his 2020 video, Altman urges Catholics to renounce the blood-soaked Democratic platform and the party of death.

Following the video and Altman's subsequent statements condemning tyrannical COVID-19 restrictions, Bp. William Callahan drove Fr. Altman from his parish, St. James the Less in the diocese of La Crosse. Bishop Callahan claimed Altman was being "divisive and ineffective."

Despite being driven out of his parish and separated from his growing flock, Fr. Altman continues to speak out against the evil of abortion and the reality of Hell. He soon turned his focus to the corruption of the U.S. bishops.

Neighboring prelates, like Detroit's Abp. Allen Vigneron and Cdl. Blase Cupich of the archdiocese of Chicago, also attempted to gag Altman. 

Father Altman joined other canceled clerics at Church Militant's Persecuted Priests Summit and continues on a road that has led him to Baltimore.

He's now in Baltimore protesting the bishops, who wrought his exile, and he continues to deliver his message with gusto.
