Word from Rome is that the Curial clerics and prelates are telling themselves and others that, “Nobody cares about this. Look at the comment threads on mainstream media outlets. The primary outrage is that the sex abuse is being blamed on homosexuals. Nobody cares about the cover-ups. Just a few loud conservatives. This will all be forgotten in a week.”
They are relying on the 36 hour news cycle to bail them out, yet again. I think we should take a lesson from the Weinstein scandal that broke last fall and launched the entire #MeToo movement in that there were fresh allegations and victim testimonies on a daily basis for months on end. Weinstein led to Kevin Spacey, which led to Matt Lauer, etc.
Given that there are countless THOUSANDS of victims of both childhood and adult sexual attack by sodomite infiltrators into the Church, given that there are thousands and thousands of alumni of seminaries and universities wherein the bathhouse scene was an open secret, thousands of men who entered seminary over the past 60 years and fled or were drummed out by sodomites, there is absolutely no reason in the world why this torrent should dry up.
Good men need to start telling their stories and NAMING NAMES. Just in the English-speaking world, all alumni of:
Any Pontifical University in Rome (Angelicum, Greg, Anselmianum, Augustinianum, Santa Croce, Regina Apostolrum, Biblicum, etc.) and the Josephenum in Ohio, which was a bathhouse for decades – TELL YOUR STORY AND NAME NAMES – NOW IS THE TIME.
Any seminary – – TELL YOUR STORY AND NAME NAMES – NOW IS THE TIME.
All colleges in Rome, with the North American College (NAC) at the top of the list, but also the Venerable English College (VEC) and the Irish College which has had open, flagrant sodomites in residence just within the very recent past – TELL YOUR STORY AND NAME NAMES – NOW IS THE TIME.
All people ever involved in the Legionaries of Christ and Regnum Christi – TELL YOUR STORY AND NAME NAMES – NOW IS THE TIME.
The Brompton Oratory, Allen Hall, and anywhere else in the U.K. – TELL YOUR STORY AND NAME NAMES – NOW IS THE TIME.
Any chancery or parish employee – TELL YOUR STORY AND NAME NAMES – NOW IS THE TIME.
Any “c”atholic University or prep school – TELL YOUR STORY AND NAME NAMES – NOW IS THE TIME.
Archbishop Vigano did what he did in the hopes that it would help other people to come forward. He has fled Italy and is now in hiding, in fear of his life. He has opened the path. Others should follow it. SPEAK UP. EXPOSE ALL OF THEM. Do NOT let this die in the 36 hour news cycle. More than picket lines, what will help the most right now is MORE VICTIM TESTIMONIES.
St. Peter Damian, pray for us.
