Okay, I've had enough.

Last week, the story broke that a high-ranking U.S. cardinal has been a homosexual predator for decades.


Current Washington, D.C. archbishop Cdl. Donald Wuerl

with former D.C. archbishop Cdl. Theodore McCarrick

Masturbating priests, forcing seminarians to sleep with him at his beach house paid for by Church funds — a Big Cheese in the homosexual networks within the priesthood which create a culture of abuse within the Church. (For those of you who are clutching your pearls in denial, kindly check out the media reports below — but be forewarned about their graphic content.)

This predator was appointed by JPII, over the objections of Americans who flew to Rome to voice them because they knew about his behavior. He was kept in office by Benedict and Francis. He was retired honorably, and now lives on the laity's support.

Furthermore, members of the Catholic and secular media knew about his activities and said nothing.

This is it, for me.

I know I speak for hundreds of millions of Catholics, not just in America, but around the world, when I say the following to the Lavender Mafia in the Catholic hierarchy:

  • Do you really think we are stupid?
  • You are parasites on the Body of Christ.
  • You have overseen the disastrous destruction of the Church in the West, and have worked overtime to spin the story so that you appear to be the helpless victims or even the fearless champions of mindless "change."
  • Meanwhile, you do not believe in the Faith; easy to see because you don't espouse it.
  • As a result, the Church is in a tailspin, hemorrhaging Catholics across the West — souls lost to cults, sects and atheistic despair.
  • Vocations are down again, after a brief uptick during Benedict's pontificate.
  • Meanwhile, the churches that represent the blood, sweat and tears of generations of Catholics are being sold on the real estate market to fuel fatuous pseudo-corporate "empowerment" programs to "revitalize" or "empower" (I forget which nauseating buzzword) "vibrant" parishes.
  • This is not to mention your drug-fueled orgies where you assault our sons, or pay pennies for the services of other people's sons in poor countries. (Google "Sex abuse Saginaw Diocese")

Preying on Seminarians

Because of you, most of my generation will die without Last Rites.

Why? You have sabotaged the future of the Faith by preventing honest young men with genuine vocations from entering our seminaries — calling them "rigid" when you read in their eyes that you cannot suborn them.

And the ones you do admit to seminaries? I have spoken personally with dozens of them. Your seminary teachers prey on them, using every grooming and abusive tactic in the book. If they acquiesce, they are prey for blackmail their entire careers. If they refuse, they are openly humiliated and mocked, until they leave, their faith all but shattered, their psyches all but destroyed.

As the mother of a son, here's what I told a young man in the Frankfurt, Germany seminary who told me and my husband that his teacher was openly mocking him at lunch gatherings because he had refused to have sex with him — knowing full well the boy was from a poor family which couldn't possibly afford to repay the tuition he would owe them if he quit.

If that boy was my son I would personally wreck your offices.

If that boy was my son I would personally wreck your offices.

That's right.

Tear all the freaking "artwork" off your walls, and throw them all through your windows. Bust every piece of glass I could find, and before the police got there, I would do enough damage that every boy in that seminary would know that at least one parent would not take this crap lying down.

Solving the Problem

But luckily for you, my son is not in a Catholic seminary. Instead, this is what I am going to do: I am going to close my wallet. And I am going to get Catholics all over the world to do the same thing.

I am going to close my wallet. And I am going to get Catholics all over the world to do the same thing.

So listen up, boys.

We, the Catholics, demand the end of the Lavender Mafia.


And no crap about "zero tolerance" à la the laughable "Dallas Charter."

  • We demand that homosexual predators be immediately dismissed from our seminaries.
  • We insist that bad bishops be removed from their sees.
  • We demand that homosexual-promoting clerics be relieved of their positions.

Giggling Over the Cosmopolitans

I can hear you snickering over your Cosmopolitans, boys.

"Who does this woman think she is?”

Boys, in your world, I'm a nobody.

Except there's literally hundreds of millions of "nobody" Catholics just like me, and we are going to close our wallets.

I can hear you tittering, and toasting each other.

“What does she know about our sources of income?”

Well, each bishop is responsible for his own diocese, right? And about 95 percent of that income comes from 5 percent of donors, right?

So, boys, times have changed.

The information about what you are up to is all over the internet.

And the vast majority of Catholics are smart enough to simply divert their donations to the authentic Church, once they get the lowdown on what you and your minions are up to.

Tomorrow, I will outline our "Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval" list of seminaries, charities and apostolates that teach the authentic Faith and which can be trusted with our money.

Did you really think we would let you destroy the Faith of our families, our treasure for 100 generations since Christ walked the earth?

Think again, your excellencies.
