Louie Verrechio Touches CMTV Nerve!!! “Pope” Mike Sends Mrs. Niles To Defend Him

Dear All,
An e-mail was forwarded to me at ChurchMilitant.com citing Louie Verrecchio’s latest article accusing Michael Voris of being influenced by money rather than the salvation of souls.

I recognize many of your names, as you were friends or acquaintances at Holy Rosary Parish, where I attended for a number of years and where three of my children were baptized. I attended since Fr. Duvelius was assigned there.

I’ve now been working at ChurchMilitant.com for more than a year, and have known Michael Voris & Terry Carroll for longer than that.

I also know Louie Verrecchio, and he’s been a guest on my radio show a couple times.

I am saddened by Louie’s accusations, as there isn’t a shred of truth to them. Louie is going on speculation and innuendo and, unfortunately, outright falsehoods.

This has everything to do with the fact that Michael Voris has taken a principled stand against the SSPX, and refuses to back down.

This is all about the SSPX. That’s it.

Knowing the truth of the situation, and knowing Michael Voris personally, I can tell you without hesitation that his first and only concern is the salvation of souls. Period.

There is no secret donor, no one bankrolling the apostolate, no rich Opus Dei member pulling the strings (the very idea is laughable). Neither does Terry Carroll (or anyone else) exercise the sort of control that others claim he does.

Michael Voris calls the shots at his apostolate. He is very much is own man, and makes his own decisions–based on the good of the Church and of souls.

I can tell you that Michael’s been offered a great deal of money by various supporters to pursue their own agenda (whether it’s government conspiracies or even pro-SSPX content)–money that would greatly help out the apostolate. But he’s turned them all down because it did not advance the mission of this apostolate–which is about the salvation of souls.

People of good will can argue about the SSPX–but to smear the integrity of a man trying to live out the Faith simply because he refuses to support the SSPX is beyond the pale.

God bless.

    DECLARATION OF BACKGROUND: I am not now, nor have I ever been a member of a chapel run by SSPX.

    The position quoted above by Miss/Mrs. Niles is reasonable.

    Unfortunately, it paints an entirely false picture of the events in question.

    Michael Voris did NOT engage in a civil debate of the subject.

    Michael Voris used his soapbox to air FALSE statements about the status of the SSPX.

    The medium he chose to use for this allows NO debate.

    The SSPX has an irregular Canonical status within the Church. They are not in Schism.

    One may also and in fact one should thoroughly examine the matter of Sacraments and the SSPX as far as validity and licitness.

    But stating that the SSPX is in Schism is a FALSE statement and one could reasonably classify IT as a SMEAR made in a medium that allows NO debate.

    So, just by applying reason one may see that Miss/Mrs. Niles claims about the victimization of Mr. Voris are the opposite of Truth.

    • Kathleen, thank you.

      I would also add that wheras Ms. Niles is rather close to the situation and seemingly emotional, it is not lawful to do evil so that good “may” result. So her claim that, “It’s all about the SSPX,” is rather misleading. For it is not the SSPX that is at issue, but rather Mr. Voris’s notion that falsely calumniating and misleading the faithful – even if motivated by a perceived good – is somehow acceptable. And he has misled/indoctrinated not only his staff, but those who are ridiculed to not think about the realities of what “he” is doing by taking what is erroneously being hawked as a principled position.

      It is Mr. Voris’s CHOOSING to sin by way of publicly calumniating fellow Catholics without facts, authority, or even a consistent argument that raises questions among faithful Catholics, Ms. Niles. You may want to see to it. Especially if your former friends are seeing it.

  2. From what I’ve read on other fora, it sure looks like, as per usual, AQ nailed this issue long before latecomers caught wind of it (which can be problematic if one happens to be a shaggy newshound.)

    Inevitably, what AQ’s crack observers and commentators saw years back hasn’t changed a bit.

    And, despite his access to leading trad spokesmen, including that all-expenses-paid trip to Italy, LaVoris consciously decided to slander his former friends and has never apologized for his despicable characterizations of Messrs. Vennari, Ferrara, Matt, et al.

    That ball is still in his court. And I expect it will just lie there, and lie there, and lie there.

  3. “…I am saddened by Louie’s accusations, as there isn’t a shred of truth to them. Louie is going on speculation and innuendo and, unfortunately, outright falsehoods.”

    What Ms. Niles conveniently blinds herself to is the reality that Mr.Voris – acting as ‘his own man’ – is not ‘not supporting’ but rather calumniating those who are similarly acting as conscience dictates to uphold the Faith and save souls. But unlike the lone man scenario, the Church herself provides for what the SSPX is about. Not so ChurchMilitant’s pretending to cover the Pope’s nakedness by playing Pope themselves or pretending there just isn’t one.

    Too bad ChurchMilitant is run by a single ‘man’ whose unauthorized opinion have led an entire faction at his forum to disregard, chastise, vilify and calumniate fellow Catholics. So whereas Ms. Niles claims the liberty of those of good will to discuss the SSPX situation, that is not so on ChurchMilitant for calumny according to one man’s unauthorized opinion is the rule. That and indoctrinated forum moderators who have no understanding of issues outside the chick-tract talking points they engage prior to blacklisting fellow Catholics.

    Perhaps Ms. Niles should do as the Pope and analyze why souls of good will would be suspicious of Mr. Voris’s motivations in acting on his own to smear others. Be consistent, Ms. Niles. Set the example of merely not supporting and sticking to facts. You don’t.

    It is my hope that Ms. Niles might widen her perspective and actually engage with those whose names she recognizes. Ask why, Ms. Niles. Don’t vilify. But then you may actually get the intelligent conversation that is denied those at ChurchMilitant.

  4. Sadly, Long-Skirts, those at CM aren’t looking for well said or even truthfully said. They opt for saying something often enough in the hopes that the lie will stick. Not quite the principled position Ms. Niles claims.

    And it would appear that the spin of, “…There is no secret donor, no one bankrolling the apostolate, no rich Opus Dei member pulling the strings (the very idea is laughable),” mirrors their position on the Holy Father when it comes to “exposing” the lies/spin inside the Church. There’s nobody in charge and the disconnects are happening with no root cause whatsoever.

    They may speak “Catholic” in one sense, but their actions say sedevecantism in practice. Not funny, despite Ms. Niles’s worshipful expulsions.

    p.s. keep on with the excellent poetry!

  5. NEW
    KIDS
    ON
    THE
    BARQUE

    Such names they call us
    That’s not what we are
    We are Roman Catholics
    At the front of the war.

    First into battle
    First to protect
    Copying our stance
    Then say we’re a sect.

    A lot like in England
    Saint John Fisher’s day
    When his brothers said, “Yes”
    This Saint replied, “Nay”.

    All alone in the Fort
    St. John Fisher stood
    Preserving, defending
    For the whole all that’s good.

    Not just for himself
    But for young and for old
    And those on rich cruises
    Pretending they’re bold.

    We’re simply preserving,
    Once again the True Fort
    As new kids on the barque
    Relax at each port.

    You know the truth –
    But must please men in power
    Who allow you your silver
    For an Internet hour

    Where they know we’ll be bashed
    And our reputations tainted –
    Just destroy the Priesthood
    SSPX – all sainted!!

  7. Ms. Niles writes:

    “…will can argue about the SSPX–but to smear the integrity of a man trying to live out the Faith simply because he refuses to support the SSPX is beyond the pale.”

    Voris attacked them but of course….

    Cet animal est tres mechant
    Quand on l’attaque il se defend!”

    “This animal is very wicked
    When attacked it defends”
