Until the Domino effect completes its sordid run, the Dominus effect won't be effective!

    In domino fashion more bishops and priests are being outed and toppled as the bad fruits are falling to the wayside - a necessary for the cleansing of the chanceries and curias to take place so that the Church can be purified and the Mystical Bride of Christ reinstated.

   One by one, day by day, they are falling like dominos. Implosion. Disintegration. Fallout. Call it what you will, but these are the effects of the cause of scandal. These are the effects of spoiling, rotting fruit that grew from the bad sprouts of modernism, humanism and the seven deadly sins. It is a fact that can no longer be denied: the Church is riddled with the terrible, scandalous and perverted sin of sodomy. The revelations of Archbishop Rembert Weakland, the modernists' darling among United States Bishops sends shock waves through the hierarchy. Should we be surprised. Hardly. How could we be? Christ foretold this 2000 years ago in Matthew 7: 12-20,

    "All things, therefore, whatsoever you would that men should do to you, do you also to them. For this is the law and the prophets. Enter ye in at the narrow gate; for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who enter by it. How narrow is the gate, and straight is the way, which leadeth to life; and few there are who find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. By their fruits you shall know them. Do men gather grapes off thorns, or figs off thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit, and the bad tree bringeth forth bad fruit. A good tree cannot yield bad fruit, neither can a bad tree yield good fruit. Every tree that yieldeth not good fruit, shall be cut down, and shall be cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them."
   This is becoming more evident each day. First there was Bishop Keith Symons in Palm Beach, Florida, followed by his successor Bishop Anthony O'Connell who promised to clean things up but only brought more rot to the flock, resigning a few months ago in disgrace after facts were revealed about his sodomizing seminarians in St. Joseph, Missouri. For years Bishop Thomas Gumbleton has championed the unCatholic sodomite cause as an auxiliary bishop in Detroit with no censorship by his superior Cardinal Adam Maida. It can be traced back to another Cardinal, the late Cardinal Joseph Bernardin whose liberal agenda included a "pink network" of "gay bishops" who he campaigned for openly in promoting their names to influential decision makers. Bernardin was a great persuader who carried the mantle of the progressivists' savior. One of those being Bishop Joseph Imesch, prelate of Joliet, Illinois. Like dominoes they are being outed. First there was the resignation of Bishop G. Patrick Ziemann in Santa Rosa, California and Bishop Daniel Ryan in Springfield, Illinois. The latter's successor Bishop George Lucas has been accused of the same. And speaking of Springfield, it was from the Diocese of Springfield-Cape Girardeau where John Paul II plucked in 1984 the next bishop to be the new Archbishop of Boston. Today there are few who are not familiar with Boston's Cardinal Bernard Law, in the eye of the storm that assails the post-conciliar Church in America today.

   It was the former Dominican priest Father John O'Connor who boldly began outing the homosexual undercurrent over two decades ago. For his honesty he was extradited from the Order of Preachers and avoided like a plague. Many called him ruthless and labeled him as a "scandal monger," stirring up demons through his unjust accusations. Never mind that he had proof; proof few considered back then. But we see today the truth of what Fr. O'Connor spoke. The ignominious resignation of Ziemann confirmed a fact that one of his predecessors was Bishop Leo Maher who went on to become the Bishop of San Diego. It was during Maher's stewardship that Fr. O'Connor stated that "75% of the priests in San Diego were homosexuals." Maher had followed Bishop Francis J. Furey who had been auxiliary bishop in Philadelphia and was appointed to San Diego by Paul VI on 3-6-66. Furey replaced an orthodox bishop in Bishop Charles Buddy who died in early March of 1966. Just as Pope Saint Pius X and Pope Pius XII had sought to keep out the modernists, the infiltrators, so also Bishop Buddy did the same. But with his death the floodgates were opened with the appointment of Furey, followed by Maher who was followed by Bishop Robert Brom who worked with Maher as the Coadjutor Bishop for more than a year before being handed the reins of the See of San Diego. Recently accusations have surfaced of violations against the sixth and ninth commandments by Brom and homosexual activities in St. Francis seminary in San Diego. Add this to the rampant rumors of St. John's Seminary in Camarillo which funnels future priests for the Los Angeles Archdiocese and provides the satellite Dioceses of Orange, San Bernardino and San Diego, and you have the makings of a very incendiary situation fueled further by the release of a shocking exposition book by Michael Rose entitled Goodbye! Good Men!. Rose is no novice to investigation for he is also the author of two other excellent books, Ugly as Sin! and The Renovation Manipulation. What he says is fact. Though Brom and Lucas deny any wrong doing, so did Weakland until confronted with undeniable facts. We have a trail of denials from Ziemann to Symons to O'Connell to Ryan to countless others who are slowly but surely being unmasked. More will tumble as they should for they have already fallen from grace.

   Canon Law confirms this for sexual abuse or contact with a minor under the age of 16 is a severe violation of a priest's obligation of celibacy. This obligation is clearly set forth in both the 1917 Pio-Benedictine Code of Canon Law and the revised code of 1983. Because sexual acting out with a minor by a cleric is particularly heinous, it has also been enumerated as a crime or delict in Canon Law. This is addressed in Code 2359, no. 2 of the 1917 Canons,

    "2. If they engage in a delict against the sixth precept of the Decalogue with a minor below the age of sixteen, or engage in adultery, debauchery, bestiality, sodomy, pandering, incest with blood relatives or affines in the first degree, they are suspended, declared infamous, and are deprived of any office, benefice, dignity, responsibility, if they have such, whatsoever, and in more serious cases, they are to be deposed."
   This has been retained in the revised code in Canon 1395:
    "1. Outside the case mentioned in can. 1394, a cleric who lives in concubinage or a cleric who remains in another external sin against the sixth commandment of the Decalogue which produces scandal is to be punished with suspension; and if such a cleric persists in such an offense after having been admonished, other penalties can be added gradually including dismissal from the clerical state.

    2. If a cleric has otherwise committed an offense against the sixth commandment of the Decalogue with force or threats or publicly or with a minor below the age of sixteen, the cleric is to be punished with just penalties, including the dismissal from the clerical state if the case warrants it."

   You'll notice the revised code has eliminated "adultery, debauchery, bestiality, sodomy, pandering, etc." and lumped them all together as a sin against the sixth commandment. It gives rise to the fears that those responsible for revising the Code were not only sensitive, but tolerant to those who they knew were already compromising their vows and Canon Law. In other words, sodomy had already been firmly entrenched by the time the revised code, called for by Paul VI in 1972, was released. It implicates the highest echelons of the Vatican with a deadly spiritual cancer that has spread throughout the Mystical Body of Christ snuffing out grace. When all the members of a body are not in harmony illness and weakness set in. The body cannot function properly, cannot function at full strength. So also the Mystical Body today. The Mystical Bride of Christ has been crippled by these sins that are only compounded when they are covered up. And that is what the Bishops continue to do, going to great lengths to deny the accusations. But they should realize Our Lord was not whistling Dixie when He said, "By their fruits you shall know them." And by the fruits of these derelict prelates from priest to cardinal we shall know them as the hypocricy and masquerade become more obvious everyday. Their lies are catching up to them because the truth is out there.

   "The Truth is out there." While that is exactly what Jesus said, it has been popularized into a memorable slogan by the sci-fi series X-Files which ended a nine-year run last Sunday night. Few programs on television attract us, but I have to admit the one that caught our fancy was the X-Files every Sunday night in chronicling the exploits of Fox Mulder and Dana Scully to uncover the conspiracy of the alien virus that threatened civilization and to uncover the masterful cover-up by the government to stonewall their efforts of seeking the truth. Of course it was all science fiction, or was it? One thing we do know in facts released over the years, much of what they dealt with were not fiction. Executive Director Chris Carter was a master story-teller, crisp dialogue and plausibilities that always left you thinking. To add to the intrigue, they made it evident early on in the series that Dana was a Roman Catholic and in the later years this came into play often in her beliefs and intermingling with paranormal phenomena on which the show built its theme. You could see Carter becoming more spiritual as time went on and the final episode gave it a true tone of Christ-centeredness about it, including the final scene where Mulder focused on the gold cross around Scully's neck and expressed the final sentiments of hope because God was a greater power than all the forces man could muster. In a very subliminal way Carter transversed over the years from new ageism to Catholic thought.

   The final episode was a microcosm of what is happening in the Church today. The parallels of the government infiltration of operatives who sought to sabotage and destroy those they were supposed to protect with the Roman Catholic hierarchs today are eerie. Just as the FBI and government subverted those who placed their trust in the civic and military authorities, so also the Bishops - from Monsignor to Cardinal to Pope - have undermined the trust Catholics always expressed for the chosen and consecrated sons of the Church. Along with the "Lone Gunmen", who were killed off a few weeks prior to the finale and who had their own enjoyable, short-lived series of the same name on Fox that was pure escape entertainment, the comparable traits of those few fighting legions equates well with the few in these time who strive to defend the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church despite being maligned through intimidation and scheming to refute the facts they offer as proof of a conspiracy in the post-conciliar Church.

   In one scene of the final episode while Mulder stood trial before a kangaroo military court, one of his defenders and cohorts Monica Reyes said something so profound that shouts volumes to what is happening today regarding the Faith and how much has been lost, and how the modernists are seeking to control everything:

    "What is the point of all this? To destroy a man who seeks the truth, or to destroy the truth so no man can seek it? Either way you lose."
It reminds us of the grueling grilling Father Nicholas Gruner has been subjected to because he seeks the truth and yet the Vatican seeks to suppress the truths of the Third Secret of Fatima so no man will continue to hope in the fulfillment of Russia's consecration.

   Mulder, during consultation with his representative Walt Skinner who played the Assistant Deputy Director in charge of the X-Files division, Fox assured that he had to go through with the trial because he was "putting the truth on trial." He warned Skinner and fellow agent John Doggett that these powers "were not afraid. They have too much power to be afraid." That signaled to me a tremendous parallel with the Bishops who we've questioned constantly on why they don't make a bold stand and announce publicly the excommunication of pro-abort politicians. Voila. It's not because they're afraid, it's because they think they have too much power. But that power is eroding, the Achilles heel being bored at persistently and ruthlessly by a strange alliance with the truth-seekers - the American liberal media in exposing this horrendous scandal today.

   It brings us to Mulder's soliloquy to his judge, jury and executioners wherein he said the following. Note I will add my parallels in brackets:

    "A bullet between the eyes would have been preferable to this charade. I've learned to pretend over the past nine years, to pretend that my victories mattered, only to realize that no one was keeping score." [Consider how many letters, phone calls, e-mails have been sent to the bishops and Papal Nuncio, even the Pope and yet they fell on deaf ears, discarded as meaningless. In the end those who had appealed to higher sources for help were left holding the bag because no one in Rome or any of the Sees were 'keeping score.']

      "To realize that liars do not fear the truth if there are enough liars, that the devil is just one man with a plan, but evil, true evil, is a collaboration of men which we have here today." [Think back to Vatican II and the schemers who prepared the schematas. They took satan's blueprint and, through collaboration with others bypassed the Holy Ghost and appointed their own spirits to cleverly alter, camouflage and outright hide truths, and covered them up with lies. The lies of a few were soon rewarded with the lies of many until there were few at the Council who could speak of what really happened. The same power of evil, I fear, held sway during the Conclaves of 1963 and 1978 and, quite possibly 1958 which would give credence to those who claim we have had imposter popes since Pius XII. Yes, it may sound like a conspiracy, one that doesn't possibly seem plausible, but then, when you realize what has happened to our beloved Church over the past 40 years and the revelations being uncovered more and more you have to pause to consider if Mulder's words do not address the men of the post-conciliar Church in these times, men who represent 'true evil.']

       "If I am a guilty man, my crime is daring to believe that the truth will out and that no one lie can live forever. I believe it still." [If that doesn't stand for the faithful Catholics who refuse to believe the lies and, even risking ridicule and possible martyrdom, believe in the Church and her teachings - doctrines that flourished and were adhered to strictly up until Vatican II - I don't know what does. It brings one to ask, if all that went before Vatican II for nearly 2000 years was right and good, then how could it be wrong today? It can't. Therefore, since what is being promulgated today is in contradiction of so much that was established, it has to be wrong no matter who says it, whether he be the pope or anyone else, always keeping in mind Saint Paul's charge in Galatians 1: 5-10, "I wonder that you are so soon removed, from him who called you to the grace of Christ, to another gospel; which is not another, only there are some that trouble you, and would pervert the Gospel of Christ. But though we, or an Angel from Heaven, preach a gospel to you beside that which we have preached to you, let him be anathema. As we said before, so I say again: If any one preach to you a gospel, besides that which you have received, let him be anathema. For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? If I did yet please men, I should not be the servant of Christ." In conclusion to this, we dare 'to believe that the truth will out and no lie can live forever.' Like Mulder, we believe it still. Forty years of wandering in the desert of the post-conciliar anathemas have convinced us of this.]

       "Much as you try to bury it, the truth is out there. Greater than your lies, the truth wants to be known. You will know it. It'll come to you as it's come to me, faster than the speed of light. You may believe yourselves rid of your headache now and maybe you are...but you've only done it by cutting off your own heads." [As much as the post-conciliarists try to bury the truth, it is still there. Jesus said it clearly in John 8: 32, "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." No matter what tactics the modernists employ, no matter what allies they dupe such as the neo-Catholics, through the grace of the Holy Ghost it will come to you just as it came to us, 'faster than the speed of light' for the light of understanding will fill your heart, soul and mind and you will be able to comprehend why we can never abandon what was passed down and preserved up until the reforms of Vatican II. There are many bishops, even high prelates within the Curia who, by explaining away the message of Fatima, by trying to justify their agendas through false rationalization and by dismissing as preponderous and irresponsible such ridiculous claims by 'dissident traditionalists' that the post-conciliarists are in heresy, seek to turn the tables and demean their accusers who are stymied in their attempts to provide the proof. It is not the hearts and souls of the flocks the modern shepherds are concerned with, but the heads - heads on a platter - of those who dare to expose the wolfskins under the shepherds' clothing. In their furor and angst to rid themselves of the headaches, they are in effect lopping off their own heads to spite their faces - their two-faces.]

   Yes, there is a conspiracy out there trying to stifle the truth. Call us paranoid if you want, but I believe in the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church' - one that has as its foundation the truths handed down through Divine Revelation which encompass Sacred Scripture and Holy Tradition. Both are being altered to suit the alien posing as the Church today, a kind of "super-soldier" which has forgotten the Church Militant's meaning of 'Soldiers of Christ'. Rather this mongrel of misinterpretation is trying to be forged from the same errors that toppled Martin Luther, Thomas Cranmer and John Calvin and have been widely renounced by all pontiffs through Pius XII. In fighting this man-made beast, it is akin to the analogy Mulder used in trying to unmask the conspirators, "I've been chasing monsters with a butterfly net." We have tools much more powerful than a butterfly net. We have the Rosary and we have the internet, a source which has been most instrumental in getting the truth out there and seeking it as well because on the web can be found fountains of knowledge that prior to the last decade could only be discovered by spending hours, days, weeks in dark, dank libraries of religious institutions of higher learning. Today there is little that is hidden that has not been revealed, and still every day more is revealed. Our Lord assured us in Matthew 10: 26-28, "Therefore fear them not; for there is nothing hid, that shall not be revealed; nor secret that shall not be known. That which I tell you in the dark, speak ye in the light; and that which you hear in the ear, preach ye upon the house-tops. And fear not them that kill the body, and cannot kill the soul; but rather fear him that can destroy both soul and body in hell."

   When Mulder was asked by Scully why he didn't share the shocking truth of what he had discovered with her, he replied "I was afraid that it would crush your spirit." [This ties in so well with how conservative Catholics treat the modernists with kid-gloves, leaning to tolerance and compromising with diversity in order not to hurt others' sensibilities, all the while those 'others' continue right on in their error-filled ways. It's all part and parcel of the Church Tolerant, a new arm of the Communion of Saints in the post-conciliar Church.] Scully pinned Mulder down with the question, "You've always said that you want to believe, but believe in what, Mulder? If this is the truth that you've been looking for then what is there left to believe in? You only fail if you give up." [So true. And realizing that knowing and loving God never leaves man wanting except to be with Him for all eternity, there is great hope, not despair. But not the false hope fostered by the post-conciliar 'super-soldiers' who are marshalling a new world pan-religious order all-inclusive regardless of belief; rather the hope and strength of the truth of Christ's words in Matthew 28: 20, "Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world."]

   The battle intensifies, but we are not shaken for we have Our Lord's assurance He is with us all days. We must all stand for Him and not apologize for exposing the charlatans who pose such a risk to the flocks, these beasts of the flesh who have been consumed by perversion and lost focus of their mission for Christ and Our Lady, the essence of purity and chastity. We must rid the Church of these pondscums who pollute the doctrines and shake the faith of souls; whether they be the post-conciliarists, conservative orthodox, even traditional priests there is no place for such quacksalvers if they are not totally repentant and pledge to be beacons of good example for the flocks, which they are responsible for before God.

   And yet, to hear the USCCB, there is not much hope for that. Just as the FBI will investigate themselves, the Democratic Party its own party, the Republican Party its own ranks, so also the American Bishops will scrutinize their own and then pass it on to Rome for rubber-stamping. Please! It is way too far gone to be policed and cleaned up by the very men who allowed it to happen in the first place. And, in their proud stubborn stand, they have refused help or input from organizations that have been proven totally ethical and correct in their evaluations; such organizations as Stephen Brady's Roman Catholic Faithful, which is at the forefront of outing sodomites within the clerical ranks. RCF's legal advisor James Bendell tried all the avenues of correct protocol in seeking to obtain the elusive 1981 document on homosexuality and priests, writing the Papal Nuncio to the United States Archbishop Gabriel Montalvo. Less than a week later on May 11th, Bendell received the following curt reply: "Kindly be advised that the document, which you request, was reserved to the use of the Bishops. Thus, I regret that I am unable to assist you in this matter. Thanking you for your kind understanding, I remain, Sincerely yours in Christ, +Gabriel Montalvo." Yeah, I'll bet he regrets that he can't assist RCF. Another example of toothless power that seeks to suppress. The good ol' boys network doesn't want any interference or input from the outside either which proves their insincerity when they mouth how sorry they are and the hollow Bill Clinton-like "I feel your pain" lies.

   Proof of this is in the letter RCF received on May 10, this year from the General Secretary of the USCCB which in part said: "Thank you for your letter of May 2, 2002 requesting an opportunity to address the Bishops when they gather in Dallas on June 13. As you can well imagine, the agenda for the meeting is concentrated almost fully on the issues of clergy sexual abuse. There are many people and organizations who would like to address the Bishops at this time. The Committee preparing the agenda is trying to pack a great deal of information, learning and discussion in a limited amount of time. So it will not be possible to extend an invitation to Roman Catholic Faithful. I hope you and the members of RCF will keep the victims of abuse and the Bishops in your prayers as [sic] this difficult time and ask Our Lady, Mother of the Church and Seat of Wisdom to guide the deliberations of the Bishops' meeting." More stonewalling. Of all the organizations, RCF has been at the forefront. Few truly Catholic organizations could offer more input than RCF, yet they have been shut out. Just more evidence of the unmitigated pride of the pompous prelates who by the day are demolishing the precious Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church with no, absolutely no regard for the souls and welfare of the faithful or the fallout that the grievous, horrendous scandals have caused, while, as reports have been confirmed, by night give in to their baser natures. Hypocrites all.

   Yes, it's a kangaroo court where souls don't count. All these mountebanks care about is their own welfare. That is a sad, sad commentary on the hierarchy today, but a truthful implication of their grave sin which they repent of only when their ugly and sickening trysts are exposed to the public. We've seen it in Cardinal Roger Mahony's whole attitude as evident from the e-mails put out in public domain by KFI Radio in Los Angeles. There is a disdain for the faithful that is shocking and tragic, especially in light of what has occurred and what continues to unravel daily. Today Archbishop Weakland, tomorrow another prelate and more priests. The Lord (Dominus) has warned us of these tragic consequences we're facing. We're seeing the results of the bad fruit, which are falling like bowling pins today. Once it has started it needs to be carried to its conclusion. The slate needs to be wiped clean. Until the Domino effect completes its sordid run, the Dominus effect won't be effective!
