As news spreads about former Cardinal McCarrick's "open secret" lifestyle, even amidst highly questionable denials by the leading members of the U.S. hierarchy, the shock and flat-out rage by faithful Catholics is mounting to a fever pitch — rightly so.
Many are asking: How can this be? How can there possibly be this many homosexual men in the priesthood? How could they have possibly risen to such heights, to the level of archbishops and even cardinals?
The answers to those questions go back to a plan by Communist agents who were taking their orders from Soviet leader Joseph Stalin in the 1920s. Almost three years ago, Church Militant conducted an on-camera interview with the notable Alice von Hildebrand, widow of the much-revered Dietrich von Hildebrand. The interview didn't get much attention then, but we think it will now.
Von Hildebrand shared with us the story of one Bella Dodd, a Communist agent with the American Communist Party from 1927–49. Dodd eventually converted to the Catholic faith under the direction of Abp. Fulton Sheen and became friends with the von Hildebrands.
Here is what Alice told us that Dodd told her and her husband in 1965:
Stalin, soon after he came to power, ordered his cronies to invade Catholic seminaries ... with young men that had neither faith nor morals. Now ... the ideal cases: homosexual. Obviously, you don't suppose that someone ... well, it's much more complicated, you know, to have an affair with a woman. But if you're a homosexual, and then it was a tragic mission ... . [Dodd] declared publicly — I repeat, publicly — that in the course of the 20 years of activities for the Communists, she recruited some 1,100 young men.
Communist agents who were homosexual — of no faith or morals — being planted in the Church's seminaries in the 1920s and 1930s would explain a lot. And that revelation by Dodd, that she was the one who actually recruited these men — 1,100 of them over the years — begins to fill in a lot of the missing puzzle pieces of what has gone so horribly wrong.
And for the record, there are sworn affidavits by various witnesses as proof that Dodd told them these things as well.
If Communist plants who were homosexual started infiltrating America's seminaries in the 1920s, the timeline would play out that they would have been ordained in roughly the 1930s and 40s at approximately the age of their mid-20s.
Eleven hundred Communist plants who were homosexual over the space of roughly 20 years could create massive chaos in the Church by the time they would "mature" in their priesthoods. Of 1,100 men, surely a good number would have advanced to bishops, archbishops and even cardinals.
And their primary role would have been to recruit the next generation of men for the seminaries, in other words, the men who were sitting in seminaries in the United States in the 1960s and 1970s and being ordained in that time frame.
Is this what happened? Does this explain, or at least help explain, the massive, near-sudden acceptance of homosexuality among the clergy over the past 20 or so years? It's hard to argue against such a conclusion.
In fact, nearly very aberration and evil, every horrible catechesis, every abuse-ridden Mass, every gay music director, liturgy director youth director, every sordid homosexual affair, every busted gay bishop and cardinal, every case of child molestation by priests, bishops and cardinals, every open embrace of the sodomite agenda in the Church these days, all of it is easily explained by this simple hypothesis.
Communism, which Our Lady specifically warned about at Fatima as spreading its errors all over the world, infiltrated into the Church by homosexual men bent on destroying the Church by destroying the priesthood. Does anyone have a better explanation? Do any of the bishops care to step up and say precisely why this might be wrong?
Would any senior, aging cardinals issuing statements that they knew nothing about McCarrick — who would have been in seminary or ordained in the 1960s and 1970s and would have sat atop the complete collapse of the Church in America during their tenures — would any of them like to say why none of this is plausible? The same leadership who have been quiet on the sins of abortion, contraception, sacrilegious Holy Communions and so forth? The same leaders again who refuse to answer the most pressing questions on this matter: What did they know about McCarrick, and when did they know it?
In fact, would any of you like to explain why the lay faithful should not think that some of you are the second generation of those original homosexual Communist infiltrators bent on the Church's destruction? Because, quite coincidentally, that destruction is precisely what has happened on your watch, and now, all of a sudden, what is being revealed is that some of the highest ranking among you are active homosexuals, or have covered it up for years.
Those bishops not involved in this must come clean to the faithful about this evil. This has to be brought to an end, and you have the power to do it. Stand for Christ, and out His enemies within your ranks. Do it now and do it publicly, while there is still something of the Church in the United States to save.Stay tuned to Church Militant for more revelations and analysis as this scandal of episcopal sodomy continues to unfold and deepen.
