Investigative journalist George Neumayr, whose article identifying Msgr. Walter Rossi as part of the gay mafia was affirmed by Abp. Carlo Maria Viganò, sat down with Church Militant to discuss outing the homosexual current in the Church.
Neumayr in September called Rossi, whom pederast Theodore McCarrick appointed as rector of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington (National Shrine), "the Gay Mafioso." He was panned heavily by leftists for doing so.
Neumayr's article cited testimony from a former student at The Catholic University of America (CUA) in Washington who recounted multiple incidents of sexual harassment that he had suffered at the hands of Rossi.
Viganò, speaking as former papal nuncio to the United States, corroborated Neumayr's statements in remarks he made on June 15 to Italian journalist Marco Tosatti.
Drawing attention to Neumayr's September article, Viganò confirmed, "Monsignor Rossi is, without a doubt, a member of the 'gay mafia.' You can read about him online on The American Spectator website."
Viganò further affirmed Neumayr's report of male students at CUA, who had accused Rossi of homosexual molestation.
"I can say that, while I was a nuncio in the United States," wrote Viganò, "I received the documentation that states that Msgr. Rossi had sexually molested male students at the Catholic University of America. The Vatican, in particular Cdl. [Pietro] Parolin, is well aware of the situation of Msgr. Rossi, as is Cdl. Wuerl."
The week after Viganò's affirmation of Neumayr's report came out, Rossi barred
Neumayr from the National Shrine for a period of five years owing to so-called "inappropriate behavior." Neumayr told
Church Militant on June 17 that it was business as usual for such people as Rossi.
"This is just a classic example of how the gay mafia operates, you know," said Neumayr. "Those who live in darkness fear the light — even a small journalistic one."
Neumayr has contributed articles
to Church Militant since August when the fallout concerning McCarrick's homosexual predation was hitting mainstream media. His articles featured by Church Militant and by The American Spectator have targeted members of the gay mafia in the U.S. hierarchy including:
- Cardinal Donald Wuerl, former archbishop of Washington
- Theodore McCarrick, a former cardinal and archbishop emeritus of Washington
- Cardinal Joseph Tobin, archbishop of Newark, New Jersey
- Bishop Robert McElroy of San Diego
- Cardinal Blase Cupich, archbishop of Chicago
One of the latest prelates to be targeted by Neumayr as a member of the homosexual hierarchy is the former archbishop of New York, Cdl. Francis Spellman.
Writing in February on Spellman, Neumayr stated
, "Spellman, who ordained McCarrick, is one of the godfathers of the ecclesiastical culture that made the enabling of their misconduct possible."
Neumayr next makes the observation that Church leaders, many of whom, according
to Viganò, are members of the gay mafia, aren't ready to clean house.
"But the will to root out the Spellmans and McCarricks remains weak," he writes. "To the extent that the Church gets around to them, it only does so under substantial legal and media pressure."
