THE VORTEX: DAMAGE CONTROL TIME – This could be the end for Cardinal Dolan

If half of what is alleged in the million-plus dollar lawsuit against Cdl. Timothy Dolan and his archdiocese is true, it could be the end of him being archbishop of New York. And this is a case that other bishops should pay close attention to because if it can happen here, it can happen anywhere.
There are two major areas that overlap in this tragic case. First: the sordid sexual deeds of a priest made pastor of a Bronx parish by Cdl. Dolan — Fr. Peter Miqueli — whom parishioners charge with carrying on a perverted pay-for-gay sexual relationship with a live-in lover for years. The second area which overlaps is that in order to pay for this perverted lifestyle, Fr. Miqueli embezzled nearly a million dollars over the course of years from two parishes.
The first is obviously sinful; the second is not only sinful, but also criminal. For at least two years, parishioners took their case to various personnel at the archdiocese and were dismissed. Other troubling areas involve gay porn on the rectory computer seen by a young teenage boy. When he saw it, the gay prostitute, who was present at the moment, made up excuses for it. Despite a mountain of evidence, chancery officials kept denying there is any evidence — and that includes most especially Cdl. Dolan, who is the one where the buck stops.
There are copies of receipts, multiple eyewitnesses, various letters back and forth, some of them signed by Cdl. Dolan, all proving that His Eminence and others in the chancery knew about this situation for a long while and did very little. It was only after local media reports and ChurchMilitant.com stories at the end of last week that the archdiocese finally admitted that, yes, there is a problem. Father Miqueli officially resigned and made the announcement public this past Saturday evening. Archdiocesan spokesman Joe Zwilling stood at the back of the parish at every Mass this past weekend saying nothing but observing and taking mental notes.
Zwilling, you will recall, is the one who sent the guards to rough up our Church Militant crew back in March when we asked Cdl. Dolan a question about him approving homosexuality in the parade.
The archdiocese and Cdl. Timothy Dolan are in massive damage control now waiting to hear word if criminal charges are forthcoming from the district attorney’s office. Subpoenas are going to be issued in the civil suit, and it is not uncommon to see criminal charges get filed as well.
ChurchMilitant.com has learned archdiocesan authorities are now calling in witnesses and others with intimate knowledge of the case to do prep work with them anticipating they will soon be subpoenaed. According to the suit, there was the initial crime — a homosexual priest stealing over a million dollars to fund a drug-fueled sex life with a live-in gay-for-pay prostitute in a sadomasochistic role-playing sex fantasy which went on for years. Then there was the negligence on the part of the archdiocese for more than a year to investigate parishioners’ concerns.
And now, according to people close to the case ChurchMilitant.com has spoken with, it appears the inevitable cover-up has moved into high gear, as various people are being told to keep quiet. The archdiocese, for example, was well aware of the gay-for-pay prostitute Keith Crist because they issued a public directive that he not be allowed on church property all the way back in 2013. In 2014, one individual with intimate knowledge who worked for the church went to Bp. Gerald Walsh to blow the whistle with the promise that they would be protected. After revealing everything, they were subsequently fired.
According to witnesses, Fr. Miqueli himself bragged he was protected by powerful friends in the archdiocese. According to various sources, the powerful friends include allies of Fr. Miqueli stretching all the way back to his days as a seminarian at St. Joseph’s seminary in Yonkers — and not just fellow seminarians, but clergy staff who are now part of a so-called lavender mafia operating inside the chancery.
This so-called mafia is composed of other homosexual clergy and homosexual-friendly clergy who protect their own and run much of the diocese through intimidation. Speculation is that Cdl. Dolan is more than just aware of this group which he inherited when being appointed to be New York archbishop in 2009. Some think it is at least partially responsible for his continued outward embrace of much of the New York gay agenda.
If it’s true that there is a powerful gay lobby so close to his throne, the question arises: Is the cardinal a helpless victim doing their bidding as he late Cdl. George of Chicago confided of his case to close friends, or is Dolan a willing accomplice?
But at the end of the day, none of that will matter if and when criminal charges get filed against the cardinal, the archdiocese and its representatives, who appear to have misled and misrepresented much of the facts of this case for quite some time. Various New York insiders have expressed to ChurchMilitant.com that they have wanted to see the gay stranglehold on the archdiocese broken, but have been helpless to do anything about it. It now appears that the media spotlight and potential jail time could begin to loosen that grip.
All of this has happened because bishops and others — and not just here in New York — have allowed homosexuality to rule the day in the dark corridors of power in various quarters of the Church. It may indeed be the case that huge monetary awards and possible jail is what will be needed to end it.
CARDINAL DOLAN HAS TO GO!
A growing number of Catholics — clergy and laity — have simply lost faith in Cardinal Dolan.
December 17, 2015
To listen the audio on Cardinal Dolan has to go click below:
Cardinal Dolan is coming under increasing scrutiny for his failing to act over the course of nearly two years in the case of the homosexual priest embezzling up to a million dollars to fund his sadomasochistic sex fantasy with a live-in boyfriend. ChurchMilitant.com has obtained various letters and documents sent more than a year ago by parishioners here at St. Frances de Chantel parish in the Bronx to the cardinal and his staff alerting them to huge financial problems at the parish.
Included with the letters are financial statements from Fr. Peter Miqueli’s personal investment accounts showing account totals of almost $700,000. They were ignored. And that’s curious.
Amid a flurry of charges over a long period of time that Fr. Miqueli was stealing enormous amounts from the parish, why wouldn’t Cdl. Dolan simply call Fr. Miqueli into his office and ask for an explanation? It was certainly within his authority to ask for an accounting from Fr. Miqueli. But it never happened.
Around this same time, according to the lawsuit, Fr. Miqueli also purchased a house in cash for more than a quarter million dollars. Yet amidst all these allegations and, at the very least, unusual financial dealings for a priest, the cardinal never once approached Fr. Miqueli and asked him about any of this.
Another red flag ignored included in the package sent to the cardinal and his staff was a photocopy of a check that Fr. Miqueli wrote to himself against the parish Mass Stipend account for $14,000 — something he’s not allowed to do, in addition to the gigantic sum of money involved. Yet no one ever questioned Fr. Miqueli — most of all, Cdl. Dolan.
In fact, as time went by, the parishioners’ complaints were dismissed — even more, by Cdl. Dolan personally, as is evidenced in a series of three additional letters Church Militant has obtained.
We sat down a couple of nights ago with close to a dozen parishioners from St. Frances de Chantel and asked them about all of this: why they filed the suit, how this has been a drain on their spiritual lives, and if they thought that Cdl. Dolan should step down as archbishop of New York in view of his covering for Fr. Miqueli and neglecting them. Not all of them wanted to appear on camera for fear of reprisal.
Recall that nothing of substance was ever done in this case by the cardinal to summon Fr. Miqueli to give an account of his actions. All that was said by Dolan was a dismissive admission that an audit performed by the archdiocese had shown some sloppy bookkeepping and nothing more.
Then when revelations started coming forth that Miqueli was using much of this money to fund his perverted sex life, Cdl. Dolan was contacted personally and informed about this by a woman who was extremely close to the situation: the girlfriend of the gay-for-pay male prostitute. She asked for a meeting with the cardinal and said she wanted to bring one of the parishioners.
Initially the archdiocese agreed, but then reversed course and said “no” — they would only speak with her alone and she was to bring all her evidence of the sadomasochistic lifestyle of the priest. She refused to go to the meeting without accompaniment, as had been initially promised, so when they denied anyone else admission, she refused to go.
Local New York camera crews caught up with Cdl. Dolan after Mass this past weekend and asked him about the case. Here is how he characterized it – or as some say, mischaracterized it. He said, “She’s saying, ‘This is what I’m telling you; I have photographs, I have evidence,’ and I said, ‘Oh, I’m glad. We’re looking for data. Please come in and give them to me and to the police.’ She didn’t.”
He conveniently leaves out the part that his legal team changed the terms of the already agreed-to meeting which caused her to be a no show. The implication, of course, is that she cannot be trusted and neither can her word. We asked the parishioners who know all about the real truth of this matter — because it was some of them who were originally scheduled to go. Again, some are on camera, others are just off camera.
We also got an on-camera interview with the woman Cdl. Dolan mischaracterized as simply not showing up. She asked us for now to not show her face.
This whole case is demonstrating what many are seeing as a deep cover-up, even on the part of the cardinal himself, even in the face of written records that ChurchMilitant.com has been shared on. Miqueli was never questioned by the cardinal about huge sums of money in investment accounts while he was at the same time being accused of embezzling huge sums. He was never questioned by the cardinal about writing exorbitant checks to himself, a violation of archdiocesan financial rules. The parishioners’ concerns were dismissed multiple times by the cardinal personally.
Cardinal Dolan stood in front of TV cameras inside St. Patrick’s Cathedral and painted an untrue and deceptive picture of a woman who has the goods on the whole case by alluding that she was untrustworthy, when he knew the real reason she didn’t show up was an 11th-hour change by his legal team.
And from a faith perspective (which is, of course, most important), Cdl. Dolan never questioned Fr. Maqueli about charges of a radically perverse sex life where he is reported to have drunk the urine of his male prostitute many times during their role-playing sexcapades. Cardinal Dolan admits he had reports of all this as far back as August, and yet never called him in to question him.
Contrast this with his immediate reaction of the calling in of a newly ordained priest who offered the Traditional Latin Mass as his first Mass. Or his cooperation in removing with lightning speed a visiting priest at Holy Innocents Church in Manhattan who preached to parishioners to hold fast to the Latin Mass and fight any move by the cardinal to close their parish.
Church Militant has spoken with various members of the archdiocese who are disgusted with this evil and criminal behavior, not just on the part of Fr. Miqueli, but more importantly on the part of Cdl. Dolan and his staff. More than just the parishioners who filed a million-dollar suit against him want him gone. In the eyes of many Catholics in New York, Cdl. Timothy Dolan has lost nearly all credibility and moral capital. Only a complete and public admission of wrongdoing and actions to start over can save his beleaguered episcopacy.
Bottom line: A growing number of Catholics — clergy and laity — have simply lost faith in him, and that is no position for a shepherd to guide his flock. In view of all this, Cdl. Dolan has shown gross ineptitude, an epic, massive dereliction of duty by not removing, or at the very least, suspending a priest who for over two years has been the center of such a storm of immorality, filth and criminal activity.
The reasons why he didn’t yank him much sooner could be varied, but at this point, all that matters is it didn’t happen. And ony Cdl. Dolan is responsible for that — especially in light of the fact that, after two years of virtually no action, it took a lawsuit and days on end of sensational, salacious headlines for the cardinal to finally yank him.

A TALE OF TWO PRIESTS
A gross disparity exists in the archdiocese of New York
On a quiet day in July 2014, Fr. Justin Wylie boarded a plane from New York City to South Africa. After four years serving the faithful here, it would be his last time working as a priest in the archdiocese.
His dismissal had nothing to do with personal misdeeds or accusations of fraud; he was sent packing based on a single homily earlier that summer in which he spoke up on behalf of the faithful and their beleaguered parish. Contrasted with the treatment of Fr. Peter Miqueli — the priest at the center of a prolonged gay sex scandal involving accusations of embezzlement of $1 million — Fr. Wylie’s fate shows not only a gross double standard but potential corruption in the archdiocese of New York.
Father Wylie had been sent to New York four years earlier from his home diocese of Johannesburg to work as negotiator at the Permanent Observer Mission of the Holy See to the United Nations. During his time in the city he ministered to the faithful, offering Mass regularly at various parishes, including St. Agnes, Church of Our Saviour and Holy Innocents.
In early 2014 Cdl. Dolan announced, as part of the biggest restructuring campaign in the history of the archdiocese, that Holy Innocents would be among the many churches to close. The faithful were stunned. Not only was the parish thriving and debt-free, it offered the only daily Traditional Latin Mass in the entire city. Even worse, Holy Innocents would be merged with a nearby parish notorious for its liberal reputation and promotion of homosexuality.
Concerned for the welfare of his flock, Fr. Wylie spoke on their behalf. In a homily delivered May 25, 2014, he pleaded with the cardinal to ensure a permanent home for the traditional community in New York.
[A]s a priest, I have to say: I worry about the situation of traditional Catholics in the archdiocese. Yes, the archdiocese ‘permits’ a Traditional Mass here or there — but responsibility for the matter continues to rest upon the initiative and resourcefulness of the laity, who with enormous difficulty have to source priests hither and thither as though we were seemingly still living in Reformation England or Cromwellian Ireland. …
You have found a home here, largely through your own hard work and perseverence: No good shepherd could dispossess you of your home without providing safety and good pasture elsewhere. …
Shepherds must needs make difficult decisions, such as the erection or suppression of parishes — that is their onerous duty and in this they must have our obedience, charity and prayer: but never should they throw open the sheep-fold and allow the uncertain dispersion of their sheep into a world full of wolves. Charity, of course, is a two-way street.
After obtaining a copy of the homily, we devoted a radio show on the Forward Boldly network highlighting Fr. Wylie’s remarks and the fate of Holy Innocents. Michael Voris spread word of the situation in a “Mic’d Up” episode in June. A copy of Wylie’s homily was posted soon afterwards to a website, and news quickly spread throughout the Catholic blog world, soon reaching the archdiocese’s ears.
Cardinal Dolan did not take long to respond. Within weeks Fr. Wylie was stripped of his priestly faculties and his permission to serve as visiting priest revoked. He was also dismissed without warning from his position at the Permanent Observer Mission to the United Nations.
His Excellency had brought down the hammer, and in swift and punishing fashion — not because Fr. Wylie had been accused of personal misdeeds or crimes, but because he dared speak on behalf of the faithful.
Contrast this with the years-long indifference Cdl. Dolan displayed towards Fr. Peter Miqueli, accused of embezzling $1 million from the faithful, skimming donations in order to buy drugs and fund his sadomasochistic sex life with a gay prostitute (also implicated in the embezzlement scheme). The faithful had been lodging complaints with the archdiocese for two years, requesting to meet with Cdl. Dolan to discuss the problem — yet each time they were written off, told a meeting would be “premature,” and that the archdiocese didn’t have sufficient information to act.Their pleas went virtually ignored.
Meanwhile, Fr. Miqueli continued in active ministry, even boasting that he enjoyed “protection” from powerful friends within the chancery. It was only once the scandal reached national proportions, making headlines and becoming an embarrassment to the archdiocese, that the cardinal finally acted, and Fr. Miqueli stepped down as pastor of his parish.
The contrast in the cardinal’s treatment of Fr. Miqueli and Fr. Wylie reveals a gross disparity in the archdiocese’s response. When an orthodox priest is punished in the swiftest, harshest terms for doing nothing wrong, while an errant priest accused of sexual perversion and serious criminal conduct is left untouched for years, the faithful are left asking: Why the disparity? Why the double standard? Why the hypocrisy?
Father Wylie returned to Johannesburg last year, where he was assigned to a small rural parish without electricity or running water. He has since been re-assigned to a coastal village, where he leads a quiet life serving the faithful. The fate of Fr. Miqueli remains unknown — but the archdiocese’s failure to respond with the same swift justice and severity it did with Fr. Wylie leaves the faithful with the impression that perhaps Fr. Miqueli’s words are true — that he indeed enjoys the protection of powerful, high-ranking friends in the archdiocese — friends who went to great lengths to shelter and protect a wolf who preyed on his flock for his own perverse ends, while a well-respected and faithful priest was sacrificed by a self-interested archdiocese.
Something is rotten in the state of New York — and it may very well start at the top.

Michael Voris gives a series of short talks, answering questions coming in response to his talk on homosexuality in Nigeria.
In this talk from Nigeria, Michael Voris speaks about the grave evil presented as good – homosexuality. Catechism of Catholic Church teaches that, “Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity (cf. Gen 19:1-29; Rom 1:24-27; 1 Cor 6:10; 1 Tim 1:10), tradition has always declared that ‘homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered” (CDF, Persona humana 8). They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved” (CCC: 2357).

Michael Voris talks an in-depth discussion of the true, financial cost of abortion and its effects to the United States. Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches that, “The inalienable rights of the person must be recognized and respected by civil society and the political authority. These human rights depend neither on single individuals nor on parents; nor do they represent a concession made by society and the state; they belong to human nature and are inherent in the person by virtue of the creative act from which the person took his origin. Among such fundamental rights one should mention in this regard every human being’s right to life and physical integrity from the moment of conception until death” (CDF, Donum vitae III; CCC: 2273).
