Dr. Alice von Hildebrand: Stalin ordered communists, in particular gays, to infiltrate seminaries

As news spreads about former Cardinal McCarrick’s “open secret” lifestyle, even amidst highly questionable denials by the leading members of the U.S. hierarchy, the shock and flat-out rage by faithful Catholics is mounting to a fever pitch — rightly so.

Many are asking: How can this be? How can there possibly be this many homosexual men in the priesthood? How could they have possibly risen to such heights, to the level of archbishops and even cardinals?

The answers to those questions go back to a plan by Communist agents who were taking their orders from Soviet leader Joseph Stalin in the 1920s. Almost three years ago, Church Militant conducted an on-camera interview with the notable Alice von Hildebrand, widow of the much-revered Dietrich von Hildebrand. The interview didn’t get much attention then, but we think it will now.

Von Hildebrand shared with us the story of one Bella Dodd, a Communist agent with the American Communist Party from 1927–49. Dodd eventually converted to the Catholic faith under the direction of Abp. Fulton Sheen and became friends with the von Hildebrands.

Here is what Alice told us that Dodd told her and her husband in 1965:

Stalin, soon after he came to power, ordered his cronies to invade Catholic seminaries … with young men that had neither faith nor morals. Now … the ideal cases: homosexual. Obviously, you don’t suppose that someone … well, it’s much more complicated, you know, to have an affair with a woman. But if you’re a homosexual, and then it was a tragic mission … .  [Dodd] declared publicly — I repeat, publicly — that in the course of the 20 years of activities for the Communists, she recruited some 1,100 young men.

Communist agents who were homosexual — of no faith or morals — being planted in the Church’s seminaries in the 1920s and 1930s would explain a lot. And that revelation by Dodd, that she was the one who actually recruited these men — 1,100 of them over the years — begins to fill in a lot of the missing puzzle pieces of what has gone so horribly wrong.

Stalin, soon after he came to power, ordered his cronies to invade Catholic seminaries … with young men that had neither faith nor morals. Now … the ideal cases: homosexual. Tweet

And for the record, there are sworn affidavits by various witnesses as proof that Dodd told them these things as well.

If Communist plants who were homosexual started infiltrating America’s seminaries in the 1920s, the timeline would play out that they would have been ordained in roughly the 1930s and 40s at approximately the age of their mid-20s.

Eleven hundred Communist plants who were homosexual over the space of roughly 20 years could create massive chaos in the Church by the time they would “mature” in their priesthoods. Of 1,100 men, surely a good number would have advanced to bishops, archbishops and even cardinals.

And their primary role would have been to recruit the next generation of men for the seminaries, in other words, the men who were sitting in seminaries in the United States in the 1960s and 1970s and being ordained in that time frame.

Is this what happened? Does this explain, or at least help explain, the massive, near-sudden acceptance of homosexuality among the clergy over the past 20 or so years? It’s hard to argue against such a conclusion.

In fact, nearly very aberration and evil, every horrible catechesis, every abuse-ridden Mass, every gay music director, liturgy director youth director, every sordid homosexual affair, every busted gay bishop and cardinal, every case of child molestation by priests, bishops and cardinals, every open embrace of the sodomite agenda in the Church these days, all of it is easily explained by this simple hypothesis.

Communism, which Our Lady specifically warned about at Fatima as spreading its errors all over the world, infiltrated into the Church by homosexual men bent on destroying the Church by destroying the priesthood. Does anyone have a better explanation? Do any of the bishops care to step up and say precisely why this might be wrong?

Would any senior, aging cardinals issuing statements that they knew nothing about McCarrick — who would have been in seminary or ordained in the 1960s and 1970s and would have sat atop the complete collapse of the Church in America during their tenures — would any of them like to say why none of this is plausible? The same leadership who have been quiet on the sins of abortion, contraception, sacrilegious Holy Communions and so forth? The same leaders again who refuse to answer the most pressing questions on this matter: What did they know about McCarrick, and when did they know it?

In fact, would any of you like to explain why the lay faithful should not think that some of you are the second generation of those original homosexual Communist infiltrators bent on the Church’s destruction? Because, quite coincidentally, that destruction is precisely what has happened on your watch, and now, all of a sudden, what is being revealed is that some of the highest ranking among you are active homosexuals, or have covered it up for years.

Those bishops not involved in this must come clean to the faithful about this evil. This has to be brought to an end, and you have the power to do it. Stand for Christ, and out His enemies within your ranks. Do it now and do it publicly, while there is still something of the Church in the United States to save.

  1. HOMO-COMMUNIST CLERICAL CESSPOOL: That’s exactly what it is.

    The Vortex – August 3, 2018

    It’s pretty clear right now that a good number of cardinals and archbishops in the U.S. hierarchy are more than a little shell-shocked from the fallout of the “Uncle Ted” McCarrick explosion. Just two weeks ago, the liberal plan to continue deconstructing the Catholic Church in America was humming along just fine — and then all of a sudden: boom!

    The fallout from what are now hundreds of articles and stories exploding on an almost daily basis, not to mention the outrage being expressed by zillions of Catholics on social media, has finally brought the spotlight on the nefarious schemes of this notorious bunch. People are starting to connect dots that just two weeks ago, they didn’t even know existed.

    One of those dots is just how rampant homosexuality is in the priesthood, and not just confined to priests, but bishops and cardinals, and how others cardinals and bishops have covered up all of this up for decades. The lies, hypocrisy, blackmail, the filth, the abuse, sexual abuse, financial abuse, abuse of sacred authority by sick men is almost unbelievable.

    What’s being totally exposed is what we could simply term: The Network. And once you see things through this prism, you wonder how you didn’t see it all along. The Network is a cooperative on various levels of pro-homo communist-minded clerics all swimming in the same cesspool. There may be some in that cesspool who are there somewhat naively but given recent revelations, not many.

    When Joseph Stalin gave orders in the 1920s for Catholic seminaries to be infiltrated by young communist agents with — his words — “neither faith nor morals,” it was homosexuals who did the infiltrating. This intelligence was passed along by Communist Party USA member Bella Dodd, selected to do the actual recruiting and placement of these homo-communist infiltrators. Dodd came clean on her part in the plot once she converted to Catholicism in the 1950s.

    Once these agents worked their way into the system, and some of them advanced, they slowly began introducing little notions here and there meant to sew doubt in the minds of Catholics about Church teaching. This was told to Church Militant by Dr. Alice von Hildebrand who, along with her husband Dietrich von Hildebrand, became very good friends with Dodd, who told them all about the seminary plot.

    Little by little, these men became ordained and moved up the ladder, introducing various heretical ideas under the guise of new philosophies or theological approaches, but many of them were also homosexual, practicing homosexuals, who, once they reached a certain level, began recruiting other homosexuals into the seminaries. And not only were other homosexuals recruited, but good men were blocked from getting in or eventually getting ordained.

    A decided shift began in how the Church approached poverty, for example. In centuries gone by, religious orders were jammed to the rafters with people who wanted to give their life’s work to helping the poor or teaching. But suddenly in the 1960s, at the same time the Church’s teaching was being replaced with revolutionary notions, a massive push in the area of so-called social justice exploded onto the scene, with many of the same professed goals as Marxist communism.

    Today, the so-called Catholic social justice movement is barely distinguishable, at least in principle, from The Communist Manifesto. Saul Alinsky found willing allies in some influential members of the Chicago Catholic clergy beginning after World War II, right about the same time the original homo-commie agents would have started coming into their own in positions of authority in the Church. For the next roughly twenty years, these men increased in stature and influence as well as planned for and recruited the next generation of young seminarians — many of them homosexual — who could take over once they had died.

    So the timeline plays out like this: For roughly 20 years, the 1920s and 1930s, 1,100 homo-communist agents infiltrate U.S. Catholic seminaries. In the 1940s and 1950s some number of them, at varying rates, gain strong footholds and positions of influence at various levels of leadership and begin affecting change in theological arenas as well as new “approaches” to the Church’s social teachings. In the 1960s and 1970s, as they were in their 60s and 70s, they ensure that the new crop of seminarians is very much like them — homosexual and social activist, with an emphasis on socialism.

    This new group, not necessarily communist agents themselves like the original group is, nonetheless, imbued with these socialist ideals as well as homosexual or at least willing to turn a blind eye to it. They are poorly formed in the Faith, embracing of so-called social justice and homosexualist in their outlook. That last sentence describes almost perfectly the situation in the American hierarchy as a collective body today.

    Even Pope Benedict said that many of today’s bishops are poorly formed in the Faith and the laity was going to have to suffer through this — we are. So look at what we have today — a hierarchy embracing virtually the entire socialist political agenda, embracing of practically anything gay and working feverishly to destroy or supplant tradition at every turn.

    They work in concert with each other, even appearing in the same talk show formats to smilingly spread their propaganda with the assistance of other men just as committed to the homosexual, communist agenda as they are. And the aim of that agenda is to destroy the Church from within, and being honest, they have done a mighty fine job. What they did not count on was the ability of the laity — through technology — to expose them and their evil.

    This has been going on for decades — active homosexual bishops and cardinals who are predators. But they were able to pretty much keep the lid on all this because the technology was not in place to bring it all into focus at the same time. Same with the social justice aspect of The Network. They could work their plans in relative silence because of how far-flung they were and difficult to connect for the average layman.

    So in every area of Church life — liturgy, devotions, religious orders, universities, theological training, art and architecture, it doesn’t matter, you name it — The Network has almost completely wiped it out and replaced it with a substitute.

    The effeminacy of a huge number of priests today has been widely commented on. The horrible catechesis, the false ecumenism, the billions in government handouts, all of it has completely reshaped the Church, right in accord with Stalin’s original plan a little less than a hundred years ago.

    The aim of the plan was to first, remove the Church as an obstacle to world domination by socialists — meaning communists — and second, to co-opt its institutions and personnel to help bring the revolution about. But their evil has caught up with them. They are being exposed as depraved homosexuals hiding in robes, with no faith and no morals, who hate the Church and Her morality and Her Natural Law clarity.

    And while McCarrick fits the bill completely, a man with no faith and no morals, deeply involved in the socialist Catholic Relief Services business, pushed non-stop by the nation’s bishops, he is not alone among senior members of the U.S. hierarchy. He just got caught and exposed.

    All of this is nothing less than a homosexual communist clerical cesspool, and if there was ever a swamp in need of draining, this is it!

  2. Behind every rock or priest is a Communist Conspiracy? There may be some truth to it. I believe in orchestrated attempts, some succesful, and some not. Given the fact that Stalin recruited the young men, it may explain corruption in the former Soviet Bloc countries. But it is unlikely that with a Russian accent, most young men would go very far outside of the Soviet Bloc. And while 1100 men, if true, would hardly make a dent in what was at that time huge numbers of men joining the priesthood.

    What is more concrete is that the Enlightenment took roots after so many years of [libertarian/Masonic/American Revolution] myths sinking into gullible, naive, “patriotic,” uneducated Catholic minds. We as Catholics cannot be “patriotic” for something that is not a nation [i.e. US], but is just an idea [Enlightenment].

    Other countries venerate their nation consisting of a people that is united to you in blood, culture, and history. The only thing basically uniting “Americans” is a desire to be in a place with financial success and be accepted for “who you are”.

    But today, even those values are warped due to the fact that many just want to be a dependent on free goods and services at other’s expense. And if you don’t provide them, you are judged for who you are.

    Also other categories of “being who you are” were created, such as gay, woman, white, hispanic, black – categories that sometimes don’t quite fit a person, but are useful for political expediency.

    The old Communists of yesteryear are passe. Not even Stalin wanted a gay society. Matter of fact, you may have probably been shot if you were a “gay activist”.

    The real enemy today is a cultural Marxism devoid of Lenin or Stalin, rejecting “class struggle” theory, and replacing it with “cultural struggle”.

  3. Dodd was a ranking official in the CPUSA, not the USSR. Even a cursory review of spectacular intelligence failures within the US Central Intelligence Agency, some of very recent and catastrophic memory, makes plain that the Reds clobbered the US (and most definitely the Church in America) almost at will.

  4. How was it that the Rockefeller Foundation was able to recruit an apparent Catholic priest at Notre Dame to serve as a useful idiot and Illuminati puppet for softening Catholics up to birth control and global Malthusian population control? How was it that it only took a few years after Vatican II to completely secularize and de-Catholicize Georgetown University?

    Unless homo Commies and anti-Catholic secret society infiltrators had already ascended to top positions? Bella Dodd, call you office…

  5. Some writers have focused too much on the “Catholic” aspects of the scandal, as if homosexuality is caused by Catholicism. The religion editor at The American Conservative needs to do a better job at getting up to speed on the heresy of modernism so that a certain writer can avoid confusing his readers.

    There should be an investigation of the Communist, masonic, and anti-Catholic secret society infiltration of the Church, as with Bella Dodd’s claims. But some of this is just coming to terms with homo subculture. These are committed and unrepentant homosexual predators. There are plenty of mentally-disturbed people who seek solutions through religion as part of their mental disorders. Homos who pretend to be priests in order to provide cover for their predatory homosexual aggressiveness exhibit a very complicated mental disorder. Preventing such perverts from being ordained should be the number one priority in the Church.

    It may become necessary to polygraph candidates for ordination to the priesthood. In addition to being asked about homosexuality, Catholic seminarians and priests should be polygraphed on whether they are or ever have been members of anti-Catholic organizations.
    As in Italy, it should be a crime to pretend to be a Catholic priest for fraudulent criminal purposes. Catholics may have to ask civil authorities and legislators for appropriate legislation on this so that criminals and perverts infiltrating the Catholic Church can be prosecuted and imprisoned for their crimes. It should be a crime for a Communist to impersonate a Catholic priest in order to use the power and authority of the Catholic priesthood to push Communist ideology and political agendas. Especially if that person becomes a bishop or pope.

  6. Interesting suggestion to mull over…
