Looks like Cardinal Dolan and the Archdiocese of New York Recruited Voris’ Past Sexual Partners [Hetero and Homo] to Go Public

If you haven’t already watched, do take the time now to read the transcript or view the video.

Truly, this is a non-story. Nobody gives a rat’s patoot.

Say what you will about diddling and heretical priests, they know exactly how to scorch the earth around whistleblowers to keep their debauchery going like the energizer bunny. They are experts at it. Slander and calumny are always their first line of defense. When that doesn’t work they turn to bullying and threats. The best thing to do is keep your hand to the plow. Expose everything they say and do — and it all backfires on them. They eventually give the gig up and realize that when corruption is exposed, the appropriate response is to take care of it so people will stop being harmed by it.

Cardinal Dolan has never had a real warrior in his diocese. He is used to Bill Donohue who has been coddling the corruption for decades. Mikey’s got to put both of his hands back on the plow and forge ahead.

  1. Michael Voris: Beating the Devil to the punch

    It simply is not possible for me to fully articulate the range of emotions that are coursing through my veins at this very moment having just watched Michael Voris’ latest video.

    Though it is necessary for me to offer some citations taken from the transcript as I embark on a feeble attempt to respond to what I’ve just witnessed, I urge you to watch the video for yourself as soon as you’re able.

    Trust me, the quotations herein are no substitute for hearing the voice of my brother in Christ, our brother in Christ, Michael, and looking into his eyes as he lays bare his soul for the entire world to see.

    According to Michael:

    We have on very good authority from various sources that the New York archdiocese is collecting and preparing to quietly filter out details of my past life with the aim of publicly discrediting me, this apostolate and the work here.

    Beating them to the punch and stealing their thunder, Michael states:

    I have never made a secret that my life prior to my reversion was extremely sinful … I will now reveal that for most of my years in my thirties, confused about my own sexuality, I lived a life of live-in relationships with homosexual men. From the outside, I lived the lifestyle and contributed to scandal in addition to the sexual sins. On the inside, I was deeply conflicted about all of it. In a large portion of my twenties, I also had frequent sexual liaisons with both adult men and adult women.

    My first reaction? Anger. Intense anger.

    What kind of gutless, diabolical, scumbag would stoop so low as to unearth and make public the sins of another man; in particular, sins confessed? I suppose I’ve answered my own question already in the asking…

    My next reaction? Sadness. Genuine sadness… Yea, we have some differences, but it breaks my heart to see Michael forced to reveal things that are no one’s business. No one should ever be put in this position.

    I’m also sorry to know that he ever went through such a period in his life. It must have been horrible; even worse than having to stand in front of a camera to talk about it today.

    Whoever is involved in this smear operation (assuming Michael’s “good authority” is correct) will get precisely what they deserve; be it in this life or the next. Our Lord will see to it. I know that.

    Even so, the vigilante in me would like to batter them personally. Another part of me feels compelled to wish them an eternity in Hell; the abode of he who is inspiring this and the other sins that they’re desperately attempting to hide. There goes that anger again.

    By the grace of God, the Catholic in me will win out, however, and I will force myself (with the Lord’s help to be sure) to pray for their conversion, that they might come to know what Michael Voris knows about the liberating power of mercy. God knows that I depend on His mercy as much as anyone.

    Michael goes on to say:

    It was a mistake to not bring this forth earlier. I did not do it to deceive, but because I did not understand the necessity … I was limiting God. I was restricting, putting limitations on the good news of His saving power. He did not just save me from a bad life — that is far too general. In much more concrete terms, He reached down into the mighty dark waters, the tempest, a sea of sin, and drew me out — for nothing is impossible with God. Nothing.

    As for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today. (Gen 50:20)

    Wicked men are seeking to discredit, embarrass, and destroy this man, but Michael Voris is making it possible for God to use this episode for good, and I have every confidence that He will.

    Michael says:

    Through the teachings of this Holy Catholic Church established personally by the Son of God on St. Peter for my salvation, your salvation, through Her sacraments, through Her intrinsic power, I was given back my masculinity that I had squandered.

    Yes, you were, Michael. It takes a man to respond as you have, and I can’t help but believe that somewhere there is a person lost in sin, destined for death, maybe many such persons, who will be so encouraged by your story that they will seek the Lord’s mercy, come home to the Church, ultimately to be kept alive.

    God love you, brother. Be assured of my prayers.

    [NOTE: Not that I expect any of our regular commenters would do so, but… I want to be clear: Please, don’t let me see any gloating, making fun, or speculation as to whether or not Michael’s past is truly in the past, etc. None of us would welcome a public accounting of our sins past or present. We can get back to hashing out our differences later. Now is a time to pray for our brother in Christ. Thanks in advance for joining me in that effort.]

  2. I have no idea why Michael Voris would have responded to this. First it should be noted that he probably saved quite a few of these kinds of detractors from thrusting themselves headlong into mortal sin by making it unnecessary for them to reveal publicly the sins of his younger days.

    I also wonder how many of these new churchers will realize the hypocrisy involved in using active homosexuality, which they are exalting and preparing to admit to the Sacraments, as a weapon against Voris. How can they use a sin as both something to coddle when it suits them, and then as a weapon in order to discredit and ruin when it suits them? This is sheer madness.

    I’m no fan of Voris. But no one deserves this. And certainly not from supposed men of God. But that’s another point. What man of God would betray God’s teaching (From Sins of the Tongue)

    “A scoundrel is a furnace of evil, and on his lips there is a scorching fire” (8 Prov. 16: 27). Indeed, compare the power and speed of fire to the power and speed of the tongue: there is a strong resemblance. When fire breaks its bounds and strikes out, it spreads desolation everywhere. So it is with the tongue: when it escapes from its prison and flies free, it does not return without having wreaked dreadful havoc. Therefore, the tongue is a fire, and it takes great wisdom to weigh it on an accurate scale. The wiser and more prudent a man is in everything, the more careful he is in measuring his words. “The words of the prudent are carefully weighed” (Sir. 21: 28) says the son of Sirach. The wise man’s lips are like the two platters of a scale on which he weighs that fire. But how hard it is to weigh even sparks and wisps of straw! I call sparks the infinity of evils that spring from a single word of detraction. For backbiting harms not only one person, but many: the servants, children and friends of the person it denigrates.

    3 Aves for Michael that he remain firm in his commitment to Holy Purity, and that much good will come from this. Maybe he will begin a side crusade for the exaltation of Holy Purity to benefit others seeking to overcome the crosses of homosexuality and other sexual addictions.

    Good luck, and prayers for you and that you make good use of these developments Michael Voris.

  3. [A case of “he said, she said”?]

    New York archdiocese denies allegation that it sought to smear Michael Voris

    Voris, editor of ChurchMilitant.com, said the archdiocese was seeking to discredit him

    posted Friday, 22 Apr 2016
    www.catholicherald.co.uk/news/2016/04/22/new-york-archdiocese-denies-allegation-that-it-sought-to-smear-michael-voris/

    The Archdiocese of New York has said it is “absolutely, 100 per cent untrue” that it was preparing to smear the Catholic journalist Michael Voris.

    Voris, the editor of ChurchMilitant.com, alleged that the archdiocese had been collecting information about his personal life before he became a Catholic.

    In a post on the Church Militant website, Michael Voris wrote: “We have on very good authority from various sources that the New York archdiocese is collecting and preparing to quietly filter out details of my past life with the aim of publicly discrediting me, this apostolate and the work here.”

    Voris said that in his 30s he had “lived a life of live-in relationships with homosexual men”, and that in his 20s he “had frequent sexual liaisons with both adult men and adult women”.

    A spokesman for the Archdiocese of New York told the Catholic Herald: “It is absolutely, 100 per cent untrue that the archdiocese was collecting and preparing to release anything concerning him personally or his website.”

  4. As a disclaimer, I read Voris on Facebook and have a priest friend who is also a friend of Voris. The priest broke the story last night in a blog and I saw my wife was upset. But as I said to her, this is a non story and I too feel sorry that Voris had to go through this ordeal . I always thought Dolan was a snake and lies about everything. So I am not surprised he was trying to discredit Voris. Kill the messenger , don’t fix the problem . That is how the Church has handled homosexual problems for centuries. Nothing has changed. As for Voris, God Bless him, In a few days, this will become a non event.

  5. It has crossed my mind that the priest or any other person who first broke this story or made Michael feel he had better tell it before the other people did, are about as bad as a cleric who breaks the seal of confession. If I had a friend who had lived a deviant lifestyle with consenting adults, and he was getting out of it and trying to lead a chaste life, and yes, had a good program to help other people lead a chaste life and to follow the commandments of Christ, I would in NO WAY, reveal the past sins to the public or try to blackmail him in any way. If a person is truly repentant, he needs all the help and prayers and support that can be given to live a good life. Gossipers are not friends but betrayers. Good friends do not abandon a person, either, but will still care and support him in his struggle to follow Christ.

  6. If what he is claiming about the NY archdiocese is true, Voris needs to name names and put evidence on the table, if he has it. Anything short of this is failure.

    • et cum spirit 220,

      You can be sure that Michael has been warned about this by people trying to help, but if Michael were to name his sources he might put them at risk or embarrass them.

      Further, there is no way the NY Archdiocese is going to admit what they were going to do. They will lie through their teeth and attempt to discredit Michael Voris even further. I believe that naming the sources is not something Michael can do, if the sources themselves were prepared to come forth that might be a different story.

      • Fidei, I agree. Voris would have to be absolutely nuts to have taken the step he took if he weren’t thoroughly convinced that evil forces were rallied to humiliate him. I can’t stress enough how disappointing his apostolate is in its shortcomings, and conversely I can’t stress enough how much I respect him for his courage to meet those forces dead on, and for his perseverance in Holy Purity. Many Aves for him and his struggles. With the exaltation in society and in what passes for the Church these days of all manners of depravity his is one example worthy of respect. May God bless him, and Our Blessed Mother protect him, and all the Virgin Martyrs pray for him.
