George Neumayr, a prominent investigative journalist, is asserting that any efforts to expose clerical homosexuality must be led by the laity because all U.S. bishops are compromised.
Speaking with Church Militant's Michael Voris, Neumayr discussed the necessity of having an investigation into homosexual deviance in the priesthood and that trustworthy "orthodox" members of the laity should conduct the investigation.
Neumayr is declaring that an oversight panel should be composed of "lay folks who have a proven track record as being orthodox and being concerned about the problem of scandal in the Church in general," adding, "in particular, who are aware of the gay mafia problem in the Church because the McCarrick scandal is a gay mafia scandal."
The public revelations of the homosexual deeds of ex-Cdl. Theodore McCarrick and the Pennsylvania grand jury report released on Aug. 14 have sent shockwaves throughout the American Catholic Church.
While being bishop of Metuchen and Newark, New Jersey, McCarrick had sexually abused minor males and engaged in sex with seminarians and priests at his beach house. His antics were widely known among seminarians and churchmen.
Catholics, however, are incensed and demanding accountability after learning that McCarrick had been well known for decades in ecclesiastical circles for his homosexual activity. They are especially disturbed that McCarrick was raised to the cardinalate and placed as head of the archdiocese of Washington, D.C. until he retired.
Neumayr maintains the situation is difficult because the hierarchy "pretty much everybody, going all the way to the Vatican, [are] one way or another implicated in this — let's not kid ourselves — the gay mafia exists in the Vatican."
He adds that if it were up to him, bishops would not be included on the panel, maintaining "all bishops are compromised," adding, "They're not in a position to tell the truth about their peers." He asserted Cdls. Donald Wuerl, Timothy Dolan, Sean O'Malley and any other American cardinals should recuse themselves and have no role in who is put on the panel.
Cries to have Cdl. Wuerl fired are reaching a fever-pitch, even to the point where the secular media is calling for his resignation.
