The Homosexual Colonization of the Catholic Church
Benedict XVI is a perfect papal clone of John Paul II http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2010/04/john-paul-iis-sole-official-papal.html. He campaigns against homosexual marriage and abortion in every country he goes to. At Fatima, after saying a few crocodile tears mea culpa about priest pedophilia, he campaigned aggressively against homosexual marriage trying to influence the government of Portugal from approving it. Really, what does Benedict XVI expect homosexuals to do after living with each other for a lifetime when one of them dies -- that they should be deprived of their spouse’s income and benefits while pedophile priests are being paid with church’s pensions? And these members of the John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army are free to roam and go on sodomizing children for the rest of their life because there is no Catholic registry of pedophile priests and the Cardinals and Bishops spend tens of millions of dollars to keep these pedophile priests record confidential.
Below is a article about “The Homosexual Colonization of The Catholic Church” which is about a book that is not for the faint of heart that has 1,3004 pages containing 4,523 endnotes.
Why is it that Fr. Marcial Maciel, the founder of the Legion of Christ who is a serial pedophile who sodomized his own biological son and the pedophile priests covered-up by Cardinal Bernard Law and Cardinal Roger Mahony of Los Angeles are not rebuked or excommunicated? Our criminal Cardinal of Boston who resigned in disgraced is sitting in glory as Archpriest of the St. Mary Major Basilica in Rome while the100 pedophile priest he covered-up are performing ES Eucharist and Sodomy for the rest of their lives?

The Homosexual Colonization of The Catholic Church
In Randy Engel's book The Rite of Sodomy: Homosexuality and the Roman Catholic Church (New Engel Publishing, Box 356, Export, PA 15632; 724-327-7379; www.newengelpublishing.com), she lays out the invasion, colonization, and the metastasization of the priesthood and religious life by homosexuals in the Catholic Church.
On the first page of the Introduction, Engel notes that she wrote an article in The Wanderer (summer of 1987) in which the editor deleted her reference to "homosexual bishops." She says: "I remember promising myself" that as soon as "my familial and pro-life duties as the director of the U.S. Coalition for Life would permit, I would take a closer look at the members of the Catholic hierarchy…." She names the names of homosexual bishops with copious citations and notes. This book, a decade in the making, reveals the homosexual "maelstrom" in the Catholic Church.
The book was published in July 2006 and has 1,3004 pages containing 4,523 endnotes, and a detailed Index. There is some irrelevant material, but not too much.
Mrs. Engel says her book is not for the faint of heart, which we will see later.
She says that "neither the Holy Father nor the Church hierarchy appear to have the necessary will, heart and stomach" to clean up the homosexuality in the Church's ranks.
In the 20th century, the Second Vatican Council "triggered" the homosexual colonization in the Church. A lot of this is due to the pontificate of Pope Paul VI. Engel says that Paul VI was a homosexual, and she gives evidence for this. Engel says that "Pope Paul VI played a decisive role in the selection and advancement of many homosexual members of the American hierarchy...." And it still continues.
Regarding the recent Vatican document on homosexuals in the seminary, Engel says: "In a Vatican Radio interview on November 29, 2005, Cardinal Grocholewski [Prefect of the Congregation for Catholic Education, which is charged with implementing the document] stated this might include a person who engaged in homosexual acts out of adolescent curiosity; or while intoxicated; or where he prostituted his body to obtain favors. High standards, indeed, for the most sublime of all vocations! The cardinal went out of his way to state that the norms expressed in the document do not apply to already ordained homosexual priests,...acknowledging that Pope Benedict XVI, like his predecessor, Pope John Paul II, has no plans to clean house and mount a serious attack on the Homosexual Collective within the Roman Catholic priesthood and religious life."
Pope Benedict XVI recently appointed Donald Wuerl to the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C. Wuerl was a protégé of Bishop John Wright (initially the Auxiliary Bishop of Boston). According to Engel, "Wright's pederastic predilections were an 'open secret' in the Archdiocese of Boston." Bill Burnett accused Bishop Wright of pederasty. Here is an instance of where the book is not for the faint-hearted. If you don't like to read sexually graphic accounts, do not read what Engel has to say about the rite of sodomy here (for it will make you sick):
Burnett stated that the abuse ritual began with drinks, a Coke for him and Coke and alcohol for [Fr. Raymond] Page [his uncle] and [Bishop] Wright. Wright would then undress him, fall on his knees before the standing boy and cover him with kisses -- feet, penis, nipples and lips. He and Page would then undress and while the latter stimulated Wright from behind (without penetration), Bill would fellate the bishop. When Wright neared ejaculation he would turn Bill around and sodomize him. Then Page took his turn at raping his nephew.... [We will spare you the rest of the gruesome story.] When it was all over, Wright handed Bill a $20 bill like he always did.
Then Bishop Wright was made Bishop of Pittsburgh, and this is where Wuerl became his private secretary, protégé, and remained at Wright's side (as he was made a cardinal) until Wright's death in 1979. Is this guilt by association? Who knows?
Engel writes: "From 1980 to 1985, Fr. Wuerl served as Vice Rector and Rector of St. Paul Seminary. The seminary had a reputation for rampant homosexuality going back to the days of Bishop Wright." Then Wuerl became Bishop of Pittsburgh in February 1988, fulfilling his protégé role.
Writes Engel: "After Donald Wuerl was posted to the Diocese of Pittsburgh, he permitted Dignity/Pittsburgh Masses to continue for eight more years.... Dignity/Pittsburgh was one of the last chapters to be evicted from Catholic facilities in the United States [on orders from the Vatican]. According to Pittsburgh Post-Gazette staff writer Ann Rodgers-Melnick, 'Banning Dignity was a sad moment for Wuerl.'... Under Wuerl, the Pittsburgh Diocese has become a stomping ground for nationally-known doctrinal and moral miscreants including Father (now ex-priest) Matthew Fox, Sister Fran Ferder, Father Robert Nugent, Sister Jeannine Gramick, Father Raymond Brown and howling feminists Rosemary Radford Ruether and Monica Hellwig."
In the summer of 1996, Mother's Watch featured a lengthy article called "Bishop Wuerl's Magnificent Obsession." Engel mentions a segment "dealing with Wuerl's exceptional relations with the members of the Pittsburgh 'gay' community who refer to the bishop as 'Donna' Wuerl...." We've heard that too.
Engel also has doubts about Pope Benedict's manliness. Engel says: "Rome correspondents report that the new pope has acquired expensive taste in designer shoes and accessories, a reputation for 'slightly eccentric behavior' and 'a penchant for disguise.' During Christmas 2005, the pope was photographed showing off a red medieval fur-lined hat -- a picture that can only be described as overtly camp. One month later, La Stampa reported that the pope has been secretly visiting his old residence at 1 Piazza Citta Leonina disguised in black clerical robes in the company of another accessory -- his very handsome 48-year-old private secretary and traveling companion, Don Georg Gänswein." We know just the mention of this will upset some of our readers; however, there is no need to jump to conclusions about this. Let's hope he's straight as an arrow.
But there is a disturbing pattern: Benedict appointed "gay"-friendly Archbishop William Levada to be the head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith; Benedict appointed "gay"-friendly Donald Wuerl to be Archbishop of Washington, D.C.; and Benedict appointed "gay"-friendly George Niederauer to be Archbishop of San Francisco. And Benedict signed the document on homosexuals in the seminary, a toothless document that can be interpreted any way you want.
Don't expect any reforms in the homosexual colonization of the Catholic Church, or what Engel calls the "Homosexual Collective." Sweetie-pie seminarians and priests will continue to flock into the priesthood, and some of them will advance up into the hierarchy. Business as usual.

Justice for Child Abuse Victims
Published: May 14, 2010
The Catholic Church is working against the interests of child abuse victims in state legislatures around the country. In recent weeks, lobbying by the church has blocked measures in Wisconsin, Arizona and Connecticut intended to widen the legal window for victims to file lawsuits against hidden predators.
We urge the New York State Legislature to rise above intense lobbying by the New York State Catholic Conference and Orthodox Jewish officials and pass the overdue Child Victims Act. Like a similar measure enacted in 2003 by California, it would create a one-time, one-year suspension of the statute of limitations for bringing civil lawsuits over the sexual abuse of children.
Once that window closes, people alleging abuse would have until age 28 to bring a claim. Current law sets the limit at 23 in most circumstances.
The measure recognizes that it typically takes many years before victims are ready to come forward. The measure also recognizes the Catholic Church’s history of intimidating victims and burying abuses in church files, creating a shroud of secrecy that extended in many cases until victims were in their 30s or older, well beyond existing time limits for prosecutions or civil lawsuits.
An earlier version of the bill passed the Assembly in 2006, 2007 and 2008, but the Senate, then under Republican control, refused to consider it. Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver expresses strong support for the latest bill, amended to cover abuses by both religious and non- religious entities. But he is insistent that the Senate act first before requiring his members to cast another politically sensitive vote on the issue.
The Senate Codes Committee is set to consider the measure by mid-June. The committee’s chairman, Eric Schneiderman, Democrat of Manhattan, should work to ensure passage of the bill, which has safeguards against the filing of bogus claims.
The Catholic Church fears a wave of costly settlements and damage awards like those that followed California’s temporary lifting of the statute of limitations several years ago. Those concerns, and the difficulty of trying to judge decades-old accusations, are outweighed by the need to afford victims a measure of justice, the demands of public safety, and the injustice of rewarding any group for covering up sexual abuse of children.
A version of this editorial appeared in print on May 16, 2010, on page WK9 of the New York edition.
Pope Benedict XVI raises his hands as he celebrates a mass at the Catholic shrine of Fatima in central Portugal May 13, 2010.
(Reuters) - Pope Benedict on Wednesday condemned gay marriage as an "insidious" threat to society, implicitly encouraging Portuguese to work against a proposed law that would legalize it.
The pope, wrapping up his trip to this country where more than 90 percent of the population is officially Catholic, made his appeal in the shrine city of Fatima on a day that started with a Mass attended by up to half a million people.
In his afternoon address to Catholic charity and social workers, the 83-year-old German pope said he "deeply appreciated" initiatives aimed at defending what he said were "essential and primary values of life."
Among these values, he said, was "the family, founded on indissoluble marriage between a man and a woman," which is Vatican-speak for its opposition to gay marriage.
The audience applauded when the pope said abortion -- which has been legal in Portugal since 2007 -- and threats to heterosexual marriage were "among some of the most insidious and dangerous challenges facing the common good today."
Portugal's parliament last January passed a bill by the minority Socialist government of Prime Minister Jose Socrates that would legalize same-sex marriages. The government rejected alternative proposals by the center-right opposition for civil partnerships and a referendum on gay marriage.
President Anibal Cavaco Silva is under great pressure from the Church and conservative groups not to ratify the bill. If he vetoes it, parliament can override the veto with another vote.
On Thursday morning a crowd of up to half a million people turned out to greet the pope at one of holiest shrines in the 1.2 billion-member Catholic Church.
Pilgrims carrying banners and national flags braved a dawn drizzle in the town where the Church believes the Madonna appeared to three poor shepherd children in 1917 and gave them three messages in the form of visions.
The first two were revealed soon and concerned a vision of hell, the prediction of the outbreak of World War Two, a warning that Russia would "spread her errors" in the world, and the need for general conversion to God and the need for prayer.
The "third secret" intrigued the world for half a century before it was revealed, inspiring books, cults convinced that it predicted the end of the world, and even a hijacking.
In 2000, the Vatican said the secret was a prediction of the 1981 assassination attempt on Pope John Paul on May 13, the same day of the first reported apparition in 1917.
Fatima gets some 5 million visitors a year and the pilgrim trade is the engine of the area's economy.
On Friday, Benedict makes a morning visit to Portugal's second city, Oporto, before returning to Rome.
