Francesco Mangiacapra explains why he sent his 1,200-page dossier to the Church
(Warning: graphic content)
Francesco Mangiacapra is on a one-man crusade against homosexual clergy in the Catholic Church. After Church Militant broke the news of Fr. Luca Morini's blackmail scandal and the 1,200-page dossier of priestly misconduct Mangiacapra delivered to the archdiocese of Naples, Italy now in the hands of the Vatican the male escort has been all over Italian news explaining his motives while the Vatican remains silent.
"Every time I've informed them [bishops] about the homosexual relationships of priests, their only interest is to know if the priests have been involved with underage boys as if the only problem is the threshold of the law," Mangiacapra told Church Militant. "A problem that the Church must face is that many of these men [escorts] either adolescents or adults are frequently in conditions of extreme poverty and are mentally and psychologically subjugated by those who represent to them a guide, and use this position to take advantage of these men."
The troubling dossier, initially wrongfully reported as containing the names of 60 priests and seminarians, is officially denouncing 34 priests and 6 seminarians. "The numbers hurriedly published by a few news outlets are imprecise because the names of priests who were simply mentioned in certain conversations were unjustly added to the names that I effectively reported," Mangiacapra clarifies.
The dossier comes after years of frustrated attempts to disclose the identity of his clerical clients. After unmasking Fr. Luca Morini, known as "Don Euro" for his extravagant lifestyle (his preliminary hearing on charges of fraud and blackmail, set for March 8, has been postponed to April 5), Mangiacapra also phoned Bp. Angelo Spinillo, Bishop of Aversa.....

Not to mention the problems of violated celibacy and the commission of what Scripture calls an abomination.
Prayers up for Holy Mother Church.
There’s a big big difference between an occasional priest stumbling on his path........and what has been reported for years... a wide-spread, wholesale homosexual carnival involving, apparently, thousands of clerics on an ongoing basis.
In the first instance, you give him counsel and prayers for fortitude and faith. But if the current reports are even halfway accurate, a major Swamp Draining is in order...
I did not leave my church. My church left me!
I well remember Father Fossier from my youth in South Louisiana in Larose. He was a man of integrity and honor. He was a bit over six feet tall and was a commanding presence. Your daughters and sons were perfectly safe with him. He abided nothing that was evil.
When I was older and could drink he occasionally would be in an old bar were the locals drank. It was a good bar. He never paid for a beer though he tried to pay. It was just not allowed. He was always addresses as “Father Fossier” with great respect. He would drink one or two beers then go back to his quarters at the church. He was originally from Quebec and thus spoke French and English. He was a man to be admired.
When my church cleanse itself, I will return. I will not pray in a place that condones evil. Praying at home is good. Giving your tithing to organizations that you know are good people is better than giving to a corrupt clergy.
No outside force can defeat the church of St. Peter. St. Peter’s church can be destroyed from internal corruption.
When the church returns to the standards of Father Fossier, I shall return to the Church of St. Peter.
This is so sad and depressing. It seems to nearly always be true that internal corruption is the most destructive force, whether we are talking about the family, the church or the nation. It is all around us and homosexuality with the disease, the obsession of it, the jealousies, the anti-marriage, the anti-family, and anti-Christian aspects of it are proving in our day that the Holy Scriptures speak against it for, perhaps, the preservation of man/womankind itself. If you think about it, and look at the entertainment world of celebrities, including the media, academia, government and our reigning institutions, you will probably find a much greater representation of homosexuals and their pervasive ideology than their actual representation in society would indicate. Therefore, they are forcing their will on the nation and it's functioning. The forces of annihilation in America are doing their thing and we see in in the media day in and day out. When Christians who are familiar with the Holy Scriptures see this, we are not surprised, for we have been forewarned of it, and saw it demonstrated even in the behavior of the Children of Israel when they wandered in the dessert looking for the promised land. God's judgment left that dessert strewn with the bodies of those who sinned against him. And, that could happen to us when we embrace the things God condemned. It is scary to see Prostitutes and children lifted to a place of power and influence over the lives of Americans through technologies which censor out truth. All of this just boggles the mind. There is just no place for the good and the wise to hide. God will triumph over our sins and it may not be long before we see that happen, for our leaders are setting up our captivity through their lust for power day in and day out. Standing up for what is right is scary and will be punished strongly before big change comes, but, when we come to know that losing everything is not an option, then we will stand up as people have throughout history. Victory, though, will be very, very costly.
