Fr. Edwin Palka on the culture of secrecy and blackmail among gay bishops

By Fr. Edwin Palka

One question that was asked after last week’s homily was, “Why don’t ‘good’ priests and ‘good’ bishops blow the whistle on the abusive priests and bishops?”

Many people still don’t (I believe most priests still don’t) understand just how evil the active homosexual or homosexual activist (AH/HA from here on out) priests and bishops are. Not understanding the extent of their depravity and wrongly thinking they’re simply “normal” men who just struggle with their sexual desires and sometimes might fail to remain chaste, but are really, truly repentant when it happens and strive to “confess my sins, do penance and amend my life, amen,” they cannot possibly grasp the hellish depths to which the AH/HA clergy will go to persecute, lambaste, punish, humiliate and blackmail anyone who stands in their way or threatens their way of life.

Let me be clear: The AH/HA priests and bishops treat their sexual mortal sin as if it is a “good” — and a God-given good at that (if they even believe in God, something of which I am very doubtful, at least in the Catholic understanding of Who God is). Nay, more than good, they are convinced that it is the good. They will go to any, I repeat, any length to force others to engage in it, to accept it or to, at the very least, ignore it and pretend it doesn’t exist or that it’s not harmful enough to mention or try to eradicate.

They do not struggle with their disordered sexual desires as so many others do, but rather revel in them. With that as my premise, let me explain why few “good” priests and bishops will openly challenge their brother priests and bishops when it comes to this particular sin. Next week, perhaps, I will take it a step further and write about why even priests who have left active ministry (mostly to get married) cannot and will not come forward with what they know about what quite often drove them out of ministry in the first place.

As part of the application process to be accepted as a seminarian, and throughout his entire formation process, a man is, and rightly so, asked to reveal an extensive amount of very personal information, including such things as his history of chastity or sexual activity, criminal activity (even if he was never caught or convicted), and his worst fears about where he might fail in living out his vows or promises (prayer, poverty, chastity and obedience).

His file grows thicker the longer he remains in the seminary, and it continues to grow after ordination, and includes self-revealed and other-revealed (from formation directors, vocation directors, letters from parishioners, etc.) information regarding his struggles, mental issues, physical problems and moral failings before, during and after formation — any perceived “hostility toward women” or “rigidity” or “uber-Catholicism” or “hard preaching” and many more such things.

That file never goes away, even when a man leaves “the system,” whether before or after ordination. This file is always meant to help him so that, by working with his spiritual director, he can improve in every aspect of his life so he can overcome fears and failings, and in order that he has a benchmark by which to gauge his improvements in holiness and competence. It’s also meant to help his bishop and any of his future bishops understand the priest, to figure out where to place him on assignment or which assignment to keep him away from for his own good.

But while a good seminary rector or bishop uses this intimate information wisely and well for the salvation of the soul of the man and those under his care, an AH/HA bishop uses it for evil purposes. How so? Let me give you a couple of completely made-up examples.

Suppose a priest’s file reveals that, as a teen, he was sexually abused by an adult male. As a result of this formative abuse, he struggled with homosexual desires as an adolescent and into his early adulthood but always remained chaste. Once ordained as a priest, he spoke out fervently against the acceptance and promotion and legalization of homosexual activity and other sexual sins.

His AH/HA bishop, knowing his past, makes him the Boy Scout chaplain, where he will be working closely with the bishop’s handpicked and openly active homosexual lay diocesan Scout leaders, hoping and even encouraging him (vicariously, through his minions) to finally fall to his boyhood, abuse-induced homosexual desires and sexually abuse one or more of the Scouts. While a continual perpetuation of this sin is most greatly desired by the AH/HA bishop, even one “close call” is enough for a lifetime of blackmail.

The AH/HA bishop will do the same with a formerly active heterosexual priest (before his conversion to Catholicism, let us say) who bucks the Lavender Mafia, though he would instead be assigned as chaplain of the girls’ high school or university for the same purposes, and “seducers” would be sent to tempt him.

Think this is far-fetched? Don’t be fooled.

“So?” you might be thinking, “What could the AH/HA bishop do with even a file full of blackmail information?” I will explain more about that next week, and you will see why even the ex-priests are not safe from such evil.

  1. How Bad Could the Blackmail Be?

    By Fr. Edwin Palka – Church Militant • August 6, 2018

    Fr. Edwin Palka on the culture of secrecy and blackmail among gay bishops

    If you didn’t read my article from last week [see above], you really should before reading this; one, as it will help put some things into proper perspective. That said, I promised to continue explaining just what an active homosexual/homosexual activist (AH/HA) bishop always threatens to do — and actually does — as often as necessary to keep the “peace” through a reign of fear and intimidation.

    His own power and “pleasure” (sick though these may be) are his main goals — not Heaven, not salvation, not true love of God or true love of man. Remember that my premise is that an AH/HA priest or bishop has no true Catholic faith. Last week I showed you some of what is in a priest’s file. The bishop has constant control of said file. He alone determines what does or does not go into the file, what might be clandestinely removed from it (see the parable of the unjust steward), and what might be “leaked” from it. The bishop also has complete control over a priest’s assignments, faculties, housing, health insurance, paycheck and, to a large degree, his reputation.

    A priest who gets on the bad side of a bishop (and that can happen even with a good priest who has a good bishop, but I am referring here to an AH/HA bishop) will get the worst assignment the bishop can conjure up. But how bad could it really be? A young priest who insists on preaching Catholic faith and morals will almost assuredly be sent to an AH/HA pastor to “straighten him out” (a very bad use of words). His AH/HA pastor will berate him both privately and publicly and tear him apart behind his back at every moment with slander, calumny, innuendo and lies.

    The young priest will be intimidated and bullied as few have ever witnessed or imagined. The AH/HA pastor has filled his staff with AH/HA lay people and deacons, and the young priest has nobody to whom to turn. There is nobody to reassure him that he is not the “bad guy” — with the exception of a handful of good, faithful Catholic parishioners whom the pastor and staff have not yet been able to run off. He will not be respected by anyone else except God. The pastor will not allow him to teach. Most of the time he will have the AH/HA deacon assigned to preach for him, and he will be forced to listen silently to heretical sermons.

    He will be assigned all of the “dirty work,” and he will be always at everyone’s beck and call for non-priestly duties and always under scrutiny. Word will go out to all pastors that he is a pathetic loser and that they should refuse him as an associate during personnel changes. He will be called down to the AH/HA bishop’s office on a regular basis to be accused of being heartless and a sorry excuse for a priest. He will be threatened to be relieved of his faculties or, at best, assigned as a chaplain at a hospital or nursing home.

    His file will grow as the bishop waves in his face every anonymous, outrageous, deceptive, un-Catholic letter from those following the AH/HA crowd as “proof” of his lack of fitness to be a priest. Everything will be done to encourage him to either engage in immorality, quit preaching against immorality, or just get the heck out. He constantly faces the reality that, after having endured eight or nine years of Pink Palace Seminary, he might be forced out after fewer years of priesthood. He will watch as his friends, those good men ordained with him, “flee the wolves” one after another, and he will see his AH/HA seminary associates promoted and rewarded — it’s no wonder so many leave.

    But why would he remain silent after he leaves the priesthood? He knows AH/HA pastors who have boyfriends, who perform same-sex “marriages,” who cook the books, etc. He knows at least some of the immoral activity of his former AH/HA bishop. How can blackmail extend even into his lay life?

    Remember the file. The AH/HA bishop will do anything to retain control of this man’s life in order to protect and amuse himself. One example is sufficient: A “good” bishop might annually invite all ex-priests and their wives to a dinner. He will show them that he cares about them, wants to be sure their families are doing well, and even, in a roundabout way, let them know he is sorry they felt forced to leave in order to keep their masculinity and morality. An AH/HA bishop, on the other hand, invites them to dinner for sinister motives. He holds out the rotten carrot that maybe soon the Pope might allow them to return to ministry, and as long as they have been “good,” they can return to where they know they belong. He buys their silence.

    Even worse, the AH/HA bishop is not so subtly telling them:

    I know your contact information. I know your family. I know your place of employment. Mess with me or one of mine and I will destroy you. I will pull something from your file (or place something in your file) and release it to the public, to your employer, to your children’s school. You will be an unemployable ex-priest and maybe also an ex-husband and ex-father.

    Yes, they are that evil. Starting to understand the silence? More to come next week.

  2. An Apocalyptic Pandemic

    Read the previous article: “How Bad Could the Blackmail Be?” [See above]

    I hope you can handle one more article about the sorry state of affairs in the Church hierarchy today. I promise you that I will not be continuing down this road, as it really takes a toll on both the author and his readers to constantly be bringing to the surface the rotting bottom layer of garbage in the compost heap, even though we all know that this arduous task is necessary to produce the fertilizer which the crops need if they are to bear good fruit. So if you can stand the smell today, I promise that next week I will propose a solution to the mess we are in. But first I think it is important to understand how we ever got to the point where so many priests and bishops are either oblivious to, accepting of, promoting or living the active homosexual/homosexual activist (AH/HA) life.

    Going back to the beginning of the “College of Cardinals” or “Conference of Bishops” in the Church, we note well that there was one immoral, non-believing traitor among the 12 Apostles, namely, Judas Iscariot. He is the only one specifically accused by Our Lord of not believing in the Eucharist (John 6:65, 71–72) and it was at the Last Supper that, committing the mortal sin of receiving “the bread dipped” without “discerning the body,” Satan entered into him (John 13:26–27 and 1 Cor. 11:29).

    Because Judas then despaired and killed himself he did not “reproduce,” that is, he did not live to ordain any like-minded unfaithful priests or bishops. Instead, Peter, in the midst of the holy brethren, explained the Scriptures being fulfilled as they chose a worthy successor to take the place of the traitor (Acts 1:15–26). But in future times up until today, occasionally, Judases have been found among the Successors to the Apostles and now they sometimes reproduce, making unholy clones of themselves. Let me explain.

    In this diocese, and I assume there is something similar in most dioceses of the United States, about every five years or so the bishop sends a form to every priest asking who among their fellow priests they believe is cut out to be a bishop and why they believe that. Holiness, capability, friendliness, education, hygiene, etc., should all be weighed properly. Supposedly the bishop then reads with great care the results and, when the papal nuncio sends him a similar form, he has on hand a ready response and sends in the names of his very best priests. Then, when an opening arises due to a bishop dying or being transferred or whatnot, the nuncio has at his disposal a list of the best priests of every diocese and he presents to the Pope a shortlist of three exceptional priests who seem best qualified for the particular diocese needing to be filled. Then the Pope prayerfully chooses one and, voila, the best priests become bishops.

    Unless — what happens if there is an AH/HA bishop, nuncio or Pope (or any combination thereof)? An AH/HA will never endorse someone who is not either AH/HA or extremely timid — period. He can never promote someone who will fight against his personally chosen sin of damnation (though, not believing in sin or damnation, he would never use such words).

    So if a “good” priest writes down any names, the form goes in the trash, perhaps after calling to the bishop’s attention a priest or two whom he needs to squash or continue to terrorize. He will only send to the nuncio AH/HA priests. If the nuncio is AH/HA he likewise screens out the priests suggested by “good” bishops.

    Finally, if the Pope would be AH/HA, you can guess what type of priests he would insist on ordaining as bishops and which bishops he would make cardinals so as to solidify his power and stack the deck for the next AH/HA conclave. This reproduction process starts slowly but builds steam with every new appointment every step of the way. The more AH/HAs involved, the faster the transformation of the diocese, the bishops’ conference and the worldwide Church.

    I assume you all have seen pandemic and apocalyptic movies where a highly contagious disease is at first undetected or ignored until all of a sudden it becomes known and feared by everyone when it starts infecting huge numbers of people. Scientists race to control it knowing that if they cannot find a cure or at least isolate it, a time will soon come when it is so widespread and has caused so much death and destruction that it will become impossible to eradicate or even partially control. I believe we are seeing the second round of panic in this AH/HA contagion among Church clergy.

    The first time, the scientists (bishops) put on a public display of cleaning it up by getting rid of any really bad priests who were reported to be infected — and thanks be to God they did. Unfortunately, they were even willing to accept collateral damage and destroy some innocent priests, too, as part of their panicked reaction. They helped bring about a general calm as concrete results brought relief but they never revealed the essential information that they had “carriers” among themselves.

    With new allegations worldwide about favored bishops being diseased and others knowing and covering for them, we now get to the part of the movie that keeps us on the edge of our seat. Will the evil scientists be outed? Will the contagion be controlled? Or is it too late?

  3. It goes even farther than that and extends to college and university records, as the Lavender mafia syndicate intersects with heretical modernists and anti-Catholics on faculties and in university administrations. I am aware of a liberal homosexual in the administration of a Catholic college accessing undergraduate records to use against conservative, orthodox, heterosexual Catholics. If Bishop Barron and Wuerl think there should be a commission to investigate the corruption in the hierarchy, the dragnet and investigation should extend to anti-Catholic networks in Catholic higher education where the corruption and infiltration is extraordinary. There are mentally and spiritually-disturbed anti-Catholics (and perverts) who have no business and no right to accessing Catholic personnel records. When Land O’Lakes opened the windows to let in the modern world, they weren’t kidding.

    If the anti-Catholic secret societies and heretical pervert cabals at Catholic colleges and universities are not investigated and rooted out, the whole thing will just be another USCCB modernist joke. Just another Potemkin village and Lavender mafia-controlled homo cover-up.
