    Why is the Vatican farming out portions of its prosecution to NY archdiocese? Pope Francis greets then-Cardinal Theodore E. McCarrick during his general audience in St. Peter's Square at the Vatican June 19, 2013. (CNS photo/Paul Haring) The Vatican’s prosecution of the disgraced former Archbishop of Washington, DC, Theodore McCarrick is proceeding and has expanded to include at least one witness who came forward after the Archdiocese of New York’s independent review board deemed an earlier allegation against McCarrick credible.Specifically, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) asked the judicial vicar for the Archdiocese of New York, Msgr....

    NY archdiocese issued suitability letter for priest under abuse investigation The Archdiocese of New York told a California college this month that a local priest had never been accused of sexual abuse, even while the priest was being investigated by the archdiocese for several abuse charges. An administrator at the college called the letter “a lie,” and said she can no longer trust assurances from the archdiocese.On December 4, the New York archdiocese issued a letter stating “without qualification” that Fr Donald Timone had “never been accused of any act of sexual abuse or misconduct involving a minor.”In fact...

    LGBT power struggle in Milwaukee: Pro-gay priest has upper hand, while Archbishop is passive Editor's note: Lianne Laurence contributed to this article. MILWAUKEE, Wis., September 29, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A priest who has come under fire for a planned retreat this week for “gay priests, brothers and deacons,” is advancing his pro-gay agenda while his Archbishop retreats into silence and inaction. The leader of the Oct. 2-4 retreat, Fr. Bryan Massingale, launched a high profile campaign in August to champion his retreat for homosexual priests while his Archbishop, Jerome Listecki of Milwaukee, has stopped short of taking steps to shut...

    NEW YORK ( - New York's Cdl. Timothy Dolan is reportedly trying to leave his post to become new head of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem. Well-placed sources inform Church Militant he possibly wants out of New York before the NY State Attorney General Barbara Underwood gets too deep into her sex abuse investigation of the archdiocese. Underwood announced Sept. 6 she had subpoenaed personnel files and records related to clerical abuse from all eight Catholic dioceses in New York. The information of Dolan's possible departure comes amid news that longtime vicar general Mustaciuolo is leaving...

    NEW YORK ( - Church Militant has confirmed that longtime vicar general Msgr. Greg Mustaciuolo will no longer serve in his position in the New York archdiocese, and will be replaced by another priest. Saint Gregory Barbarigo Parish confirmed that Fr. Joseph Lamorte will be taking over the position of vicar general effective Oct. 1.  Although the archdiocese has not publicly given any reason for the abrupt change, inside sources confirm Mustaciuolo's removal is directly related to the launch of the New York attorney general's investigation into the Catholic Church — a move long feared by the New York archdiocese.   Inside sources confirm Mustaciuolo's...

    Fatima Perspectives #1231 As this column goes to press, the news has leaked that New York Attorney General Barbara Dale Underwood “has subpoenaed all New York Roman Catholic dioceses as part of a state-wide investigation into sex crimes committed by the church…”.I wonder if Cardinal Dolan, the endlessly amused Archbishop of New York, is laughing now — just as he belly-laughed when confronted by a staffer of The Fatima Center on the Borgo Pio in Rome, who reminded him of the manner in which he had disgraced the Church by leading a Saint Patrick’s Day Parade knowing full well that it...

    . Cardinal Timothy Dolan blasted the Trump administration’s policy of separating kids from their parents on Friday night, calling it “un-American and unbiblical.” The White House got into holy hot water this week when Attorney General Jeff Sessions and press secretary Sander Huckabee Sanders both referenced scripture to claim the administration has the moral authority to forcibly take kids away from parents if they cross the southern border illegally. “I mean, that’s just unjust. That’s un-American and unbiblical,” Dolan, leader of New York City’s 2.8 million Catholics, told CNN on Friday night. Sessions specifically cited the Apostle Paul who in...
  • Dolan: Pope’s Reported Remarks to Gay Man, While ‘Beautiful,’ Could Require Clarification

    New York City, N.Y., May 22, 2018 / 08:30 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- The Archbishop of New York said Tuesday that while some recent comments about homosexuality attributed to Pope Francis are “orthodox teaching,” the pope's reported remarks could require clarification. Cardinal Timothy Dolan affirmed the pope’s recent affirmation of God’s love for a gay man with whom the pontiff visited in Rome, saying: “Jesus would have said that, and so would I. That’s conservative, traditional, Catholic, orthodox teaching. The ‘Catechism’ insists on that.” “While any sexual expression outside of a man and woman in marriage is contrary to God's purpose,...

    Dolan, The Met & The Politics of Carnival Maureen Mullarkey May 9, 2018 The question begs to be asked: What is the point of Cardinal Dolan? Whatever vocation he might once have espoused has dissolved in the acid of celebrity. He is an embarrassment to his office, and a disincentive to every serious-minded, diligent working priest in his archdiocese. Let him retire to the Hamptons, or South Beach, some glittering water hole where he can do what he is best at—glad-handing. He is an episcopal show-boater, the grinning face of a hierarchy desperate for the moment’s approval.Timothy Cardinal Dolan, hail-fellowing...

    Wednesday, May 9, 2018 A Tale of Two Clergypersons Edit: remember when Bishop Rogelio Plano was arbitrarily dismissed and had the door slammed on his face when he came to Rome shortly after to ask why, and died shortly after?  It was clear to us then that it had to do with him calling out one of his fellow bishops and accusing him of being an aberrosexual, as well as being a victim of his own success, growing more vocations in this seminary than all the rest combined. Even the Vatican admitted it had nothing to do with accused predator,...

    Liberal commentator Piers Morgan has once again broken ideological ranks, this time penning a column expressing his disgust over how “a bunch of flesh-flashing celebrities” disrespected Catholicism with their sacreligious costumes at the Met Gala. “I'm a Catholic,” Morgan wrote for the Daily Mail. “Not the most devout you'll ever meet, I'll admit. But I was brought up a Catholic – I even received not entirely successful spiritual guidance from nuns as a teenager! – and I still consider myself to be a Catholic. I know many people don't believe in any God or religion, let alone Catholicism, and I...

    For the fourth year in a row, openly gay groups will march under their own banner in a parade founded to honor Ireland's patron saint — as the archdiocese of New York looks the other way. Only this year, they will be given pride of place: marching at the front. The 2018 New York St. Patrick's Day Parade will feature two gay groups: Out@NBC-Universal and Lavender and Green Alliance. On Thursday, a parade spokesman told Church Militant that the initial controversy is waning. "That's pretty much disappeared," he said. "No one's brought it up, there's been no comment, no media references. You're the first one...

    After the murderous attacks by a terrorist who mowed down kids and pedestrians with a rental truck in New York City, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo made a startling admission: He actually uttered the forbidden words, “Radical Islam.” He further revealed that the terrorist had been radicalized not in his home of Uzbekistan, but only after his arrival in the United States. Not surprisingly, NBC News offered this headline in reporting the massacre: “Muslim Americans again brace for backlash after New York attack.” Not to be outdone, Cong. Jerrold Nadler (D., N.Y.) bellowed tired banalities on MSNBC, wrapping up with...

    Two left-leaning Catholic bishops, along with “married” homosexual partners, celebrated a special Mass for "Families of the LGBT Community" in San Diego last weekend. The event commemorated the 20-year anniversary of a controversial U.S. bishops’ letter on homosexuality that was censured by the Vatican within a year of its release.   Bishop John Dolan, an auxiliary bishop in the Diocese of San Diego, presided over the October 7 mass commemorating the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' (USCCB) letter on homosexuality "Always Our Children.”  The mass, concelebrated with San Diego Archbishop Robert McElroy and 16 other clergy, took place at St....

    By now it should be clear that homosexualist priest Fr. James Martin, S.J. must have some pretty powerful protectors within the Church, clerics who are either homosexual themselves or in league with such men for whatever reason. In a stunning development, Church Militant has learned and confirmed that the sodomy-promoting Fr. Martin has been selected as the keynote speaker for this coming October's big deal meeting for the very big deal Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem. Here is a copy of the letter obtained exclusively by Church Militant, announcing Martin's appearance. It was sent out to all...
