Church Militant on Msgr. Rossi. Andt thank you George Neumayr.


Church Militant has focused today's (Aug. 19, 2019) episode on Msgr. Rossi.

First, it acknowledges the groundwork of George Neumayr.

Second, many of the questions they ask, I have asked, such as:

  • Why has Msgr. Rossi not been placed on Admin. Leave, as other priests are?
  • Who is reviewing the allegations?

Again, my fear is that they (Bambi, The African Queen, etc.) will whitewash this.

As many have said, the only way that this will end, is if we begin to withhold funds from the Church.

My Worry: The Investigation of Rossi will be a Sham


After learning that there was an investigation of Msgr. Rossi, a few years ago, and that they found no evidence of "certain accusations," my worry is that the current investigation of him will be a sham. 

Why?

  • What were the previous allegations that there was evidence of? Did we even know of such an investigation?
  • We do not know what they are currently investigating?   Is it financial, sexual, or something else, or a combination of charges?
  • If there is a formal investigation, then why have they not put him on a leave of absence?   
  • Who is conducting the investigation?
  • We know that Bambera and Gregory have a history of ignoring these sorts of problems.
  • Why is Rossi still on the CUA board?

What can you do?

  1. Write to the Archdiocese of Washington to complain and let them know that no further $$ will go to them.  Then do it!
  2. Write to the Shrine to complain and let them know that no further $$ will go to them.  Then do it!
  3. If you are student or alumni, then you need to reach out to CUA to let them know of your displeasure.
  4. If you have given to the CUA collection in the past, STOP!

Donations to the Archdiocese Annual Appeal are already down almost 40%. Can you imagine what would happen if additional $$ were held back in the weekly collection.   

My sources tell me that the Archdiocese is in a panic because they cannot figure out how to support all of the seminarians.  So, instead of attempting to come clean about the issues, what do they do?   They stick with the message: We need to support the seminarians!  

Take a look at what George Neumayr says today about the investigation.

Breaking News: Msgr. Rossi to be Investigated?!

According to George Neumayr, via his twitter account, the Diocese of Scranton has issued a statement saying that they and the Archdiocese of Washington will investigate Msgr. Rossi.  It seems that they investigated him a year ago -- no indication of what it was for -- and found nothing.

Now that there are "new allegations," they have decided to investigate.

So, here are my thoughts...

  1. Shouldn't he be removed from ministry temporarily, as others have been?
  2. There is no indication of what the new allegations are?   Are they due to abuse?  Misappropriation of funds?  Violating his vow of celibacy?   Hiring a criminal on his security team?  Lying to George Neumayr re banned from the Shrine?  All of these?  None of these?  We don't know. 
  3. Notice the term "forensic investigation."  If I recall, that is he same term used by Archbishop Gregory during his Theology on Tap talk, in relation to Msgr. Rossi. 
  4. Do you think that this is being done, as Bishop Bambera (aka Bambi) is rumored to be in line as the new Archbishop of Philly, and wants to make a showing that he is on top of things?   Could be be throwing Msgr. Rossi under the bus, to protect himself?

Personally, I have no faith that they will do the right thing.  At most, Msgr. Rossi will be reassigned back to Scranton with a slap on the wrist OR will be allowed to retire to his condo on Florida.

Thoughts?

President Trump, +Gregory and the Politics of Personal Destruction


This gets right to the heart of the matter, better than I could have said it...


The problem that I see with Archbishop Gregory's message lies in the fact that our bishops have (as usual) arrived late on the scene. The "politics of personal destruction" had become a regular feature of our nation's political discourse long before Donald Trump — and his vociferous critics — arrived on the scene.

Wanda, Randy Andy and the Archbishop

Well, once again, George Neumayr continues to add a little more to the story of Msgr. Rossi (aka Wanda), Fr. Hvozdovic (aka Randy Andy), and Archbishop Wilton Gregory (aka The Enabler and The Cover Up Artist -- my names, not his).

One of the things that Mr. Neumayr talks about is that Archbishop Gregory will do nothing about Msgr. Rossi, if he can get away with it.  It is sad that I was so right about the Archbishop.

Maybe you should ask your pastor about Msgr. Rossi.  I bet he will claim he knows nothing about him or claim that he really is not part of this Archdiocese, therefore, nothing can be done about him.

You can read all about at the American Spectator.

Remember, the only way to get the message to the folks in Hyattsville, is to withhold funds from them.

BTW, my sources tell me that folks in Hyattsville are in a bit of a panic, due to the HUGE drop in funds for the Appeal.  They are not certain how they will pay for everything at this time.  

Hey, maybe if you clean things up, you may see the amount of funds increase.  Ever thought of that?  Nah, that is too easy.
