Perverted, Drunken, Sodomite Thief Bishop Michael Bransfield

In the years before he was ousted for alleged sexual harassment and financial abuses, the leader of the Catholic Church in West Virginia gave cash gifts totaling $350,000 to fellow clergymen, including young priests he is accused of mistreating and more than a dozen cardinals in the United States and at the Vatican, according to church records obtained by The Washington Post.
Bishop Michael J. Bransfield wrote the checks from his personal account over more than a decade, and the West Virginia diocese reimbursed him by boosting his compensation to cover the value of the gifts, the records show. As a tax-exempt nonprofit, the diocese must use its money only for charitable purposes. 
The gifts — one as large as $15,000 — were detailed in a draft of a confidential report to the Vatican about the alleged misconduct that led to Bransfield’s resignation in September. The names of 11 powerful clerics who received checks were edited out of the final report at the request of the archbishop overseeing the investigation, William Lori of Baltimore. 
Read the rest at The Washington Compost.

What happened to the vow of poverty? Clearly, Bishops can't be trusted to be in charge of church finances.

Yet another McCarrick consecration.

Joseph D'Hippolito said...

McCarrick has to be a part of this, somehow.

My definition of Clericalism: the ability to get away with financial and sexual abuse just because you are a priest or Bishop. Take that PF.


The lies and filth just keep coming!

As someone commented elsewhere - low income neighborhoods right outside their door in West Virginia. I'm sickened. Wheeling per capita income for the city was $17,923 in 2000.

Priests do not take a vow of poverty, only some Orders do. Nevertheless, embezzlement is
embezzlement . We had a pastor who cleaned out all the church accounts like Altar Rosary etc. He never paid the utility bills which resulted in parishioners having to write personal checks because the parish checks were deemed unacceptable. He stole all the rectory furniture which was just purchased as reproductions by the previous pastor and then he left. i asked the parish accountant why they did not report him to the police........."Because he's a priest." was the response.
Yep the same cross dressing thieving "priest"left the priesthood for about twenty years but now he shows up online as a Bishop's personal secretary.
Wonders never cease !

No just because you are a lefty V2 SJW lots of holy traditional Catholic priets would be disciplined for much less like offending the old fag hags on the parish council.

NO Catholics are insane to keep putting checks into the collection. Sorry, no more. We only give gift cards to faithful priests and nothing to the diocese. Not one dime for Rome.

I started listening to an interview with a Dutch cardinal who is a medical doctor, Doctor of philosophy and theology - until he quoted wotjyla and I stopped. Is it possible that such a man does not know Catholicism 101 that an heretic cannot become, or remain Pope? NO! It is not possible! Does such a man not know from canon law that Declaration is not necessary for loss of Office? NO! It is not possible! So why will these prelates not stand up for the Faith and suffer the consequences bravely - to death if necessary? Are they craven cowards - including burke, vigano, etc.? YES! They are! They are the comrades who keep conservative neocons hoping and remaining in the no church. Should we be surprised? NO! Of all the bishops of England, only ONE - Bishop John Fisher - stood up and died for the Faith.

Novus Ordo is the counter church or the new world order church. Frankie getting it set up for the anti-Christ. There is nothing Catholic about it, it is chrislam. Having said that, there is no such thing as chrislam. A made man ideology. God cannot co-exist with evil. If one believes in co-existence then one is calling God a liar, therefore one is tricked by lucifer of breaking the first commandment, you will have no other gods before Me. Time to throw V2 out ,get on our knees and beg for forgiveness.

Dear Hannah, You are so correct! Why can only so few Catholics see what is blatantly obvious?
