Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Participating In Trump's Inauguration, Called Catholic Victims Of Clergy Sexual Abuse "Fake Victims" Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Participating In Trump's Inauguration, Called Catholic Victims Of Clergy Sexual Abuse "Fake Victims"

This is probably the most vile story I've ever had to write, but this Cardinal Timothy Dolan deserves to be exposed in a big way.

I sent him a letter privately about this in 2015, which his representative at the diocese acknowledged in writing that he received. But since he doesn't find it worthy of a response, the public realm is the next best venue.

Don't think for a minute that this is an anti-Catholic screed. Not at all. In fact it's just the opposite. Clergymen must be held accountable to the moral law by the laity if they fail in their sacred duty; Saints and Popes throughout history have taught us this and stated such in countless official documents. Cardinal Dolans has failed his flock in multiple ways.

While I am a faithful professed and practicing Catholic, has reported twice on Cardinal Dolan previously, neither of the instances favorable. Before getting to the main point of this story I will cover two other issues which illustrate Dolan's behavior. Dolan whines about the bad treatment illegal aliens allegedly receive, he criticizes victims of police abuse as a 'shrill minority,' and he calls sexual abuse victims of clergy 'fake victims.'

The National Catholic reporter posted Cardinal Timothy Dolan to participate in Trump inauguration, with Dolan stating "I am honored to have been asked to offer a reading from Scripture at the upcoming presidential inauguration, and look forward to asking almighty God to inspire and guide our new president and to continue to bless our great nation."

Yet just this week, on Tuesday January 17th, Dolan wrote that he had "some reservations" about Trump: "Friday, we'll inaugurate a new president. As with all previous ones, some welcome him, some are worried about him, most a little bit of both. Whatever our reservations --- and as with most other inauguration days, I have some too - - it is classically a time of prayer, renewal, hope, and unity. May it be so . . . !"

In May of 2015 Cardinal Dolan penned an op-ed in which he wrote "the immigrant, especially Catholic Latinos, are scorned and rejected. Neither political party can claim success in dealing with them justly, and once again, they are being demonized in our society."

Open borders, illegal aliens by the millions depleting infrastructure, finances and welfare rolls, and flagrant violation of the law don't seem to bother the Cardinal of New York. If people shouldn't respect borders, fences or laws, why does the NY Archdiocese have locks on its doors and gates around its' properties? Why do they have no trespassing signs? I guarantee that go to any Catholic church in New York and you will see signs regulating tresspass and parking plastered all over their property. Violate these rules and they will call the police.

While we're at it, I should point out that The official Catechism of the Catholic Church, Section 2241, states that immigrants are obligated to obey the laws of the country that receives them!

"Political authorities, for the sake of the common good for which they are responsible, may make the exercise of the right to immigrate subject to various juridical conditions, especially with regard to the immigrants' duties toward their country of adoption. Immigrants are obliged to respect with gratitude the material and spiritual heritage of the country that receives them, to obey its laws and to assist in carrying civic burdens."

Furthermore, an official document from the U.S. Catholic Bishops states that The Duty of Government Is To Secure One's Border And Enforce The Law For The Sake Of The Common Good!!"

So Dolan's pity party for criminal lawbreaker illegal aliens doesn't fly, nor is it in line with virtue. Furthermore, at the same time that Cardinal Dolan is flaunting violations of the law, he adulates corrupt police and smears what he calls the "shrill but tiny minority" whom "might try to malign" the 'heroic' police. I wrote a letter to cardinal Dolan in January 2015, which his secretary acknowledged receiving. The letter outlined the facts of the widespread corruption of New York police, which is also acknowledged by New York State prosecutors themselves, in voluminous detail. I guess Dolan is blind to that too, and thus only demonizes the moral people who have the guts and integrity to criticize law-breaking police.

But this next issue takes the cake. Another thing I addressed in my letter to Dolan involved victims of the pervert priest scandal. On August 4, 2011, Dolan posted 'Gratitude to the Catholic League' in which he wrote, "My thanks to Bill Donohue and the Catholic League for the following press release issued last week."

Dolan included Donohue's full press release, which stated, in part, "If this isn't surreal enough, consider that the phony victims' group, SNAP, is accusing New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan of covering up the alleged misconduct, even though Dolan knew nothing about it. He continues "According to SNAP's press release today, these cases also show the Church's tolerance of pedophilia. But neither of the two cases involved pedophilia: in both instances, the alleged victims were teenagers. The name of the game is to paint priests as child abusers, which is a bold-face lie. It's time the media turned its cameras on the liars at SNAP."

First of all that is extremely outrageous thing to say. As a lifelong Catholic who attended parochial schools, I have quite a lot of knowledge about the pervert priest scandal, and make no mistake, that's exactly what it is- a satanic inspired horror- where children's lives are destroyed by supposed men of God. My expose last year about defrocked priest Richard Allen Henry was featured in 10 mainstream corporate newspapers in Los Angeles County including the Los Angeles Daily News, Long Beach Press Telegram, Pasadena Star News, and many others. I am an acknowledged authority on this matter, by the mainstream corporate press no less.

Regarding the claims about SNAP; Six years later Dolan still has posted on his Archdiocese website an article written by a vitriolic right-wing blowhard "Bill Donohue" who claims SNAP is a phony victims group. Donahue always blames the victims of pervert priests, insinuating that the victims make it up for money. SNAP is an acronym for Survivor's Network of Those Abused by Priests. Their website is

So, the Archdiocese of NY re-posts Donohue's blog stating that SNAP is "a phony victims group." Let's look at just two members of SNAP.

Mary Grant was raped by Catholic priest John Lenihan when she was a teenager- the satanic pervert admitted the rape after Grant confronted him on it while police had a wiretap running. Was the rape phony? is Mary Grant phony? Are the police and prosecutors in Orange County, California where this occurred phony? No, unfortunately it was all too real.

Manny Vega, a decorated police detective from Oxnard, CA and former Marine who received the Navy and Marine Corps Medal of heroism for pulling people out of a burning helicopter in South Korea, is a member of SNAP. He was sexually abused by a priest as an altar boy in Los Angeles and is one of the very rare victims that still practices Catholicism. Is Vega a member of a "phony victims group"? What an outrage to even dare make such a claim. How many of these poor victims lose their souls after they abandon their faith because of this monstrosity?

The Archdiocese of New York has lofty-sounding platitudes on their website regarding child sexual abuse:

In 2002 when I was protesting the pervert priest abuse scandal I was featured in national newspapers. I got to know many of the real victims of this horrific crime. I was invited to a national SNAP conference in Los Angeles and videotaped it for them. Among the speakers were State legislators, the L.A. County District Attorney, numerous lawyers and prosecutors and many other doctors and law enforcement professionals. Many of them were in tears when they relayed the absolute horror of this situation which some in the Catholic hierarchy covered up for.

I had also been invited to and attended private SNAP meetings and been in their homes. It is vile and outrageous and I will dare say SATANIC for a Catholic Bishop to say such an outrageous thing that these people are FAKE VICTIMS. That is OUTRAGEOUS and despicable. And yet Dolan six years later still maintain this vile garbage on his official website. How dare he. He in reality should get on his knees and beg forgiveness for such slander and make a public apology. There is such a thing as bearing false witness, as he should certainly know.

So this is the person who is going to be grinning ear to ear tomorrow as he dare read sacred Scripture at President Trump's Inauguration. I thought everyone should know that because Dolan deserves to be shamed. It's actually a spiritual work of mercy called 'Admonish the sinner'. Another one is 'instruct the ignorant.'

Instead of calling victims of clergy rape 'fake victims,' I pray for them. Dolan should know and meditate on all of the pain, heartache and shattered lives that his pervert clergy perpetrators caused to these innocent children and teenagers. Their bodies, minds, psyches, spirits were destroyed and altered forever by these criminals posing as men of God.

I also pray for the murder victims of corrupt police, and their families, and all those who mourn the loss of their loved ones in grief and still have not been able to get justice.

I also pray for the millions of victims in America who have had their loved ones robbed, raped and murdered by the criminal illegal aliens which Dolan claims are the victims.

My God clear Dolan's mind and help him seek a properly formed conscience and moral clarity.
