THE VORTEX: I ANSWER ONLY TO GOD – A new culture is forming in the Church on Homosexual Clergy
March 31, 2016
To listen the audio on the Vortex: I answer only to God click below:
The horrific story coming out of central Pennsylvania in the past couple of weeks is almost beyond words — the sexual abuse of hundreds of boys at the hands of priests and religious covered up not just by various bishops and religious superiors, but done actually in collusion with local government authorities.
It’s all spilling out now in not just one, but two grand jury reports, convened to investigate this very issue. The scope of the original investigation was somewhat narrow, but, as happens quite often, one thing led to another, each covered-up fact led to the revelation of many more, and suddenly, you have not only the crime, but the larger cover-up.
We’ll leave the details of the original stories and the growing list of subsequent ones aside for the moment, but they can be read about and viewed here on Church Militant. The focus of this Vortex ishow this all came about — and the how really gets down to a who.
His name is George Foster, a 55-year-old advertising man who is a devout Catholic, completely dedicated to the Church and Her teachings — all of them. For years, he had been gathering information on not just the abusers but those covering it all up, the broad, overarching network of cover-up involving bishops, religious superiors and government officials.
This activity went on for decades, and Foster could no longer sit back idly. Foster, a father of six, comes from a long history of devout Catholics: His uncle and brother are priests, and his mother was a devout Catholic pro-lifer, and his father led the family Rosary every night.
Abuse victims, after being shunted off by religious authorities, started coming to Foster after reading his letters to the editors of local newspapers saying this homosexual priest problem had to be addressed — and the only way to address it was to expose it. State investigators eventually stumbled across Foster’s name while doing their work, and when they came to him, he provided boxes of well-organized, detailed files he had been keeping for years.
They were stunned. What Foster had amassed was practically their entire case, which resulted in the two grand jury reports handed down at the beginning of March implicating two successive bishops of covering up the cases in cooperation with various police chiefs and other law enforcement, as well as elected officials.
Church Militant spoke with the intrepid Foster, and he said flat out: This was his duty before God because the Church wasn’t doing anything about it. In fact, they were obstructing justice. He has taken grief from the establishment Church, but says flatly, “I only answer to God. Bishops don’t bother me.”
And before anyone runs wild accusing Foster of being some liberal ecclesial anarchist, his comments are in reference to the sins of bishops and religious who are committing horrible deeds, not the more general aspects of a bishop’s teaching role.
Here is a layman who saw evil and sin and wickedness and said “Game over. Someone has got to do something.” And given his deep faith and lineage and devotion to Our Lord’s Bride, he decided that someone needed to be him. So he started writing letters — and the rest is history.
Owing to his lone-ranger efforts, a couple of weeks ago, the portraits of the two bishops involved in all this filth were removed from the cathedral: Bp. James Hogan and Bp. Joseph Adamec. They were ordered taken down by the new bishop Mark Bartchak. Those two men conspired for nearly 40 years with police and others to keep hundreds of cases of sexual abuse and the 50 homosexual priests and religious protecting them under wraps. Meanwhile, the abuse continued, and the Faith was wiped out in the area.
Foster’s case points to an increasing trend among the laity, in which Church Militant is involved as well, of faithful, committed Catholics taking things into their own hands and exposing the moral corruption to the secular world because they get shut down by the ecclesiastical world.
The nightmare case of a homosexual ring of priests running the show in the archdiocese of New York is also a case of faithful parishioners in the Bronx having to file a lawsuit about enormous sums of money allegedly being embezzled by a homosexual priest to pay for years of association with a male prostitute. Only after their action became public with the filing did the archdiocese finally take action, after at least two years of skirting the facts and engaging in a cover-up.
More and more, faithful Catholics are being forced to look deeper into various situations and sniff out corruption and infidelity. Only when the case involves some lurid details does the secular media report it — but there are many more cases and instances of damage to the Faith than just lurid cases.
All over the country, the Faith has been damaged by pastors and bishops who will not heed the pleas of their sheep about the acceptance of homosexuality being forced on them in schools, parishes, clubs, ministries and so forth. In a huge number of dioceses, the Faith is being betrayed by leaders who are more interested in anything but the advancement of the Faith. And still, even the simplest expressions of regret over past failures is elusive.
In Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for example, former archbishop Rembert Weakland resigned in disgrace when a man with whom he had an ongoing sexual relationship went public with news that Weakland had paid him almost a half million dollars to keep quiet. Years later, the archdiocesan headquarters still bore the name of the dissident bishop Weakland emblazoned across it, who openly challenged Church teachings on homosexuality, contraception and the all-male priesthood.
He ran Milwaukee for 25 years, was president of the U.S. Bishops Conference, and all the while was a practicing homosexual who has since written a book saying the Church is wrong on this subject. Again, another lurid story making headlines and forcing a change, but only after being made public by a layman in the secular press.
Pope Benedict called all this “filth” — his word — but apparently bishops worldwide don’t seem to agree it’s filthy enough to put a stop to it. So laymen like George Foster and many more beginning to emerge into the open are saying, “Bishops don’t bother us. We answer to God only.”
This is becoming a runaway train, and the bishops had better do what they have to do to end it all. We need to pray for them every day for fortitude.

“God himself is the author of marriage” (GS 48:1). The vocation of marriage is written in the very nature of man and woman as they came from the hand of the Creator. Marriage is not a purely human institution despite the many variations it may have undergone through the centuries in different cultures, social structures, and spiritual attitudes (CCC:1603)

Many believe the Freemasons are simply a centuries-old charitable fraternity. However, the Catholic Church has consistently condemned Freemasonry more than any other error in its history because it promotes indifferentism, naturalism, communism, and other dangerous philosophies.
Homosexuality, the Grave Evil Presented as Good with Q & A, Part 1 & 2

Mic’d Up “Pink Money and the Homosexual Mafia”
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).

CIA: The Rockefeller Foundation – Actively Undermining the Catholic Church click below:
We are used to thinking of the Rockefellers as simply a byword for wealth, power and financial success. Perhaps we might think of them as determined businessmen or see them as great philanthropists. But the truth is far different; the Rockefeller Foundation is actively undermining the Catholic Church, and in the process, attempting to erase man’s natural orientation to the eternal.
Global Warming Unmasked click below:
Are the environmental movements and groups simply devoted to laudable, correct stewardship of God’s creation, or do they have a more sinister, hidden agenda? Is “global warming” being used as an excuse for something far darker? Is the final goal of the liberal elites behind the push of junk science population control, eugenics and Gaia worship?
