CHICAGO (ChurchMilitant.com) - Watchdog group Roman Catholic Faithful (RCF) is kicking off 2019 with a rally in Chicago against the corruption of U.S. bishops.
On the evening of Saturday, Jan. 5, RCF will host a conference examining "the evil that exists within the hierarchy" of the Catholic Church in America and lay out its plans for combat.
On Wednesday, Church Militant spoke with RCF President and Founder Stephen Brady about the upcoming event.
"It's clear that many, if not most, of the bishops have lost the Faith," Brady said, outlining his motivation for the conference. "They've been covering up for homosexual clergy for decades. They've hurt and scandalized the faithful. Lives are being destroyed and souls are being lost. It has to end. It stops now."
The conference will feature several speakers. Brady will speak on the topic of "Exposing the Corrupt and Godless Hierarchy," examining sex abuse cover-up and how to fight it. His wife, Jo, will address the spiritual battle faithful Catholics face in "The Casualties of Warfare."
Clerical sex abuse survivor Bob O'Donnell will share his account of "Living After My Rape by a Catholic Priest." International children's rights advocate Liz Yore, a featured speaker at the November Silence Stops Now rally in Baltimore, will speak on "The New World Order Pope and Building the Resistance." And RCF attorney James Bendell will tackle how to respond to the corruption of the hierarchy in "Bishops Behaving Badly, and How We Can Stop Them."
The RCF conference is designed to coincide with the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops weeklong "prayer and reflection" summit in Chicago; from Jan. 2–9, U.S. bishops will gather at Mundelein Seminary to forge a path forward in the face of what many are calling the greatest crisis in Church history.
Brady said the rally is being held in the archdiocese of Chicago for a second reason: its infiltration by the homosexual network. He described the archdiocese as the nucleus of homosexual corruption in the U.S. Church — the center of the lavender web.
"We're setting our sights on Chicago," he told Church Militant. "The goal is to unseat Cdl. Blase Cupich and to get a godly bishop installed in Chicago."
Brady acknowledged this may seem like a tall order, but said, "If faithful Catholics have that small mustard seed of faith, then through prayer, fasting and relentless spiritual combat," God will eventually cleanse the archdiocese and the wider Church.
The RCF conference will be held from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 5 at the Hilton DoubleTree Hotel in Libertyville-Mundelein. The event is free of charge (freewill offerings to help cover expenses will be accepted) and no registration is required. More information is available at RCF's website.
RCF is putting the bishops on notice: "We are going to put the dioceses and episcopal sees of each of you under a microscope. We are willing to crawl into the darkest dens of depravity where children are molested and expose this entire network and enterprise to the public," it said in a recent statement.
"To those of you bishops and cardinals willing to assist us and cooperate, we thank you in advance," RCF continued. "For those of you who will oppose our crusade, let me make this clear — we are going to name names and take whatever remedial action we find necessary, including picketing, urging boycotts of financial contributions by parishioners and ... well, let's just say we have a few other ideas as well."
