Wuerl's triple cover-up was in the newspapers, from coast to coast

Preliminary Venting:  It's amazing how Americans, Pennsylvanians, and Pitts-
burgh residents in particular were clueless that Cardinal Wuerl was caught in a
triple cover-up which resulted in three of his Pittsburgh priests being multiply
indicted.  This is because the news of the criminal indictments and the reports
of Wuerl being uncooperative with law enforcement officials rang out in the
newspapers from Lewiston Maine to New Hampshire to NYC to to northwest-
ern Ohio to Chicago to California ... and from Cleveland to Saint Petersburg
to San Antonio, Texas.

In fact, Wuerl was the second bishop in America to get caught performing a
cover-up.  His was multiple, with a fourth molester priest having been put
back into ministry during the same year as when the triple indictments were
being processed.  The fourth priest was a high school headmaster who caused
a lot of students to be emotionally traumatized in later life.  One of the young
men who was living in the headmaster's home took a shot gun, affixed it to
his head, and pulled the trigger, shortly after he was sent home for punching
the headmaster.  I was the last person who was not a family member to ever
see him alive.  Two hours later, he was dead.  Now you know why I reached
to help those who were the play toys of predatory priests.  I didn't want to go
through another suicide.

Sincerely, Patrick Anthony Pontillo, the Wuerlgate author who didn't back-
down,  despite the multiple threats and unfriendly apartment bldg intrusion.

Let us proceed:

In the Vatican II church's sex abuse scandal, Cardinal Donald Wuerl became the
second American bishop to get caught performing a cover-up which resulted in
criminal prosecution for the priest(s) being covered.  It all started in Abbeyville
Louisiana with Father Gilbert Gauthe, in 1985.  Then came the indictments of
Pittsburgh diocesan priests, Frs. Wolk, Zula, and Pucci ... during Wuerl's watch.

Being that Wuerl was one of the first bishops in America to get caught cover-
ing up criminal priests, he was one of the first bishops in America to announce
a zero tolerance policy.  He struck the pose of a strick disciplinarian, only be-
cause he was in a huge law-enforcement spotlight, and quite frankly, it had
gotten to the point where the next priest to be convicted of wrongdoing, if
Wuerl were to keep playing his unconscionable games, was Wuerl, himself.
However, he would have been found guilty of a summary judgment only,
forced to do no more than pay fine.  However, his strive for high Vatican
power would have ended then and there.

All in all, Wuerl announced NO zero tolerance policy until Wolk, Zula, and
Pucci were indicted.  Plus, Wuerl did NOT enforce the policy, when it came
to Fr Edward Huff who would come to be criminally indicted and convicted.
Plus, no zero tolerance policy applied to the retaliatory James Torquato.

Wuerl was no caring man looking out for the underdog, while in possession of
this so-called caring smile.  Those of us who did meet Wuerl in person could
not but help notice his conceitedly curt dismissiveness and his flaming homo-
sexuality.  Yet, it wasn't the flaming homosexuality that was the shocker.  His
mean spirited conceit was.  You could tell that he was thoroughly vicious and
would destroy any human life he could get away with destroying, while having
no remorse ... while experiencing no haunting in his apparently stone cold con-
science.  He was as cold as a demon right before the initial start of an exorcism.

Concerning Wolk, Zula, Pucci, and even John S. Hoehl

These priests were not reported to authorities by Wuerl, as was required in the
Pennsylvania Child Protective Services Act.  Attorney F. Peter Dixon did the
reporting.  He was the friend of the molested family.  Technically, only one
of the two molested youths were an altar boy; so stated for the record.

In addition, Wuerl publicly stated that his cover-up of Robert Wolk was not
covering-up.  Wuerl was a liar from Day 1.

Here are the newspaper reports on Donald Wuerl's triple cover-up, shortly after
it was uncovered.  The fourth simultaneous cover-up of Donald Wuerl was that
of former high school headmaster, John Hoehl.  Being that Wuerl put Hoehl
back into ministry, declining to remove him until Robert Wolk was indicted.
When Wolk was indicted, Hoehl became a hot potato.  Only at that point in
time did Wuerl remove Hoehl.  Thus, Ann Rodgers deceived the public in
what she wrote about Wuerl dismissing Hoehl.  If it were for Mr. Dixon,
Hoehl would never have been removed from ministry.

All in all, Wuerl never acted out of caring kindness or a sense of duty.  He on-
ly acted in fear of being personally prosecuted, investigated on a mass scale, or
sued.  It was law enforcement and the civil law system that prompted Wuerl's
actions; not Wuerl's conscious which, by all indictions, is a dead conscience.

Concerning the previous statement, wait until you undergo something similar
to the James Torquato Retaliations and you'll immediately agree.   If you've
not yet gone through the telephone threat scenario and physical pursuit, then
you have no right to comment about Wuerl.  You're not part of that very costly
and elite fraternity that has a very unpleasant initiation .  If you haven't suffere
to the marrow of your soul, on account of a lying narcissistic power abuser
named Donald Wuerl and nicknamed Wuerl the Girl, as well as Whirlybird
and Donna.  If you haven't undergone anything even remotely close to the
Torquato Retaliations, then you have no insights.  Your comments have
zero value.  Absolute Zero.  Go write and comment about something else.

Concerning the Triple Cover-up and the two molested youths:

There was also the matter of a fourth alleged molester of the two youth who
happened to have been a layman.  This was reported in a Cleveland Plain
Dealer article, as well as in a couple other American newspapers.

There was also the matter of the tragic Father George Zirwas being at the
scene of one of the three priest's crimes, remaining entirely silent while it
was transpiring.  It transpired in a sky lodge suite.  Father Zirwas remained
silent and complicit, while the priest and his young prey were in a bedroom.
Zirwas was strangled to death in Cuba, years later.

The Wuerl People, including former Pgh Post Gazette writer Ann Rodgers,
continue to cover up Wuerl's Triple Cover-up by means of revising history
to the point of making Wuerl sound like the presiding hero in it.  Proof that
Wuerl was far from the hero of the hour is blatant, evidenced by the fact

District Attorney John C. Pettit publicly announced that Wuerl & his staff
were uncooperative throughout the criminal investigation.  Case Closed.
Wuerl, therefore, is still engaged in a cover-up, doing what he and his
minions can, in keeping the facts of the triple indictment away from as
many members of the public he and they can.  This is ongoing deceit.

Below is one Jpeg and several links that uncovered Wuerl's triple cover-up
at the time when it was uncovered.  Compare them to what Ann Rodgers &
her fellow propagandists say about Wuerl today, concerning that time span.

Read them.  You will see that no one in any of those news reports is calling
Wuerl a hero of any sorts.  Just the opposite occurred.  You don't have to
take my word for it.  Look for yourself.   In fact, Look, Identify, and Per-
ceive.  The Wuerl People are liars and Donald Wuerl is a living lie.  This
site has the Jpegs and newspaper archive links to prove it.

Unlike his condemners, I've spoken with George Neumayr at length and on multiple occasions.

There is a notable amount of articles being written about George Neumayr, and
some of the things written about him are quite damning.  In fact, the writers un-
der Cardinal Wuerl's undue influence are especially damning and very childish.

Now, I know George, being that we have spoken to each other at length, during
the days when I used live to on the Carolina Coastline (during a time of severe
physical disability.)  In as much, do you want to read about George from those
who never spoke with him or from someone who knows his voice patterns very
well, even to the point of knowing what influenced George, while he was living
in his home state of California?  That is to say, do you want to read pro-Wuerl
propaganda or objective experience?  It's your call.

Now, it's absolutely true that George and I are day and night when it comes to
Economics, being that I am among the greatest and most detailed condemners
of Ronald Reagan, Ronald Reagan Worshipers, and Reaganomics.  Meanwhile,
George subscribes to the Republican economic platform.  The difference here
is that I earned academic honors while studying collegiate economics, account-
ing, and French.  Plus, I was taught by a retired JFK man.  Therefore, I know
a tad bit more about economics than the average bear.  None the less ...

Even though George and I are polar opposites when it comes to economics, we
have no differences when it comes to basic Catholic doctrine and Canon Law.
This includes the rules on Holy Communion which Cardinal Wuerl, in his
political cowardice, completely violated as a matter of policy.

Donohue Called the Polite George a Fanatic.  Try again, Bill

George is quite humane when he speaks, yet the formlessly rotund and teeth-
gritted Bill Donohue called George a fanatic.   Well, Bill "$407,000 per year"
Donohue is wrong.  Donohue is the one who sounds like a madman when he

George can get expressive in his writing.  This is why he impressed me.  For
example, he once stated that cardinals wear the color red to show that they're
willing to shed their blood for the faith.  George then made note that Wuerl is
not willing to suffer any inconvenience for the same faith.  In fact, Wuerl acts
as if the Faith of Peter is the inconvenience.

During the first Torquato Retaliation, Wuerl proved that he was willing to
have me and/or Torquato's evidence-based accuser, or one of our pursuers
shed our blood.  Torquato was provoking intense physical violence, and
Wuerl did NOT stop Torquato from doing what he was doing.  Therefore,
the only blood that Wuerl is willing to shed is yours, if it could give him

By the way, keep in mind that, when you give to the Catholic League, you
are giving part of your money to Bill Donohue, so that he can live whatev-
er life it is that can be appropriated by a salary far in excess of the Average
American income.  You are also giving money to a person who hogs the
limelight and doesn't let any other American Catholic fulfill his mission.
Everyone in the church has a mission.

Incidentally, Donohue lied when he said that Donald Wuerl was man, "all man."
Firstly, Donohue would have been more correct in stating that Wuerl was get-
ting weathered with time.  None the less, concerning the narcissistic Wuerl's
younger years, the most notable things seen by us who actually did meet him

1} How tiny he is, when compared to the deceptive photos which make the
     5'4" Wuerl look much taller.

2} Jet gray hair set on someone who looks as if he never developed past the
     age of 14.

3} His conceited-type of flaming homosexuality, where he instantly reminded
     one of the typical 1980s college theater major who was too good to talk to
     anybody while walking to the school auditorium.

Then, after a few seconds, one couldn't help but notice how incredibly cold and
uncreatively inarticulate Wuerl was.

There was nothing manly about Wuerl in any capacity.  Thus, Donohue is a liar.
And remember, the Bill Donohue who railed against George Neumayr railed
against Hollywood Jews, concerning the Passion of Christ which was such a
disappointing and incomplete movie.

By the way, when you are getting beaten badly and are in intense physical pain
you do NOT project the look on your face that the actor in the Mel Gibson movie
did.  Plus, the Jewish community stated objections to the movie, on account of
the Gibson family's noted anti-Semetism, especially when Mel is being arrested
by a Jewish cop.  So, Donohue got that one wrong.

In addition, us Italians were the ones who drove in the nails, and if you under-
stand the unfathomable mystery of mercy, you know why us Italian intimately
feel that mystery in depth.  We are one of the greatest beneficiaries of mercy,
and it was our people who inflicted those wounds which will forever radiate
like rubies of Heaven.

Think.  Christ died according to the Italian form of execution.  The Jewish form
was stoning.  Christ was crucified, not stoned to death.

In fact, the Jews welcomed Christ into Jerusalem with palm branches being made
into a road of entry for him.  Jewish children were saying, "Hosanna in the high-
est, Son of David."  It was merely that those in power at the time were intimidated
by Christ's power.  So, they sought to have him destroyed, in fear that he would
take power from them.  They abused their power and influence, manipulating
other people into doing their malicious work for them.  But originally, the Jews
in Jerusalem opened a gate and let Christ in, as if he were a victorious warrior
returning home.

Okay then, us Italian crucified Christ, and this is why God, in his mercy. saw to it
that the capitol of Christianity would be in the very Italy which processed his death
with regimented efficiency.  Such a thing glorified God's mercy all the more.  Yet,
in all reality, your foreseen sins are what crucified Christ.  So, you were a part of it,
too.  So, don't go lynching us.   I can assure you that Italians will lynch you back.

Concerning Donohue railing against Jewish Hollywood, my friends in Florida
were Jews, and they confided their most personal feelings to me.  They were
more humane than Wuerl and Attack Dog Donohue, combined.  In fact, I once
lived in the Jewish section of Pittsburgh and even did charity work with a Jew-
ish synagogue there.  The most recent person to publish me in paperback form
is a Jew near the Boston city limits, and we get along really well, as if we were
childhood buds.

In fact, the Virgin Mary happens to be a Jew she is a major influence to me.  So,
if you want to learn of the Jewish mindset and the Jews' most pertinent concerns,
I'm the one who can provide true insight ... not Bill "$407,000 a year" Donohue.
You can learn how to be a blob of hatred from Donohue, if that's what you wish.

Back to George:

The one person most influential in George becoming a card-carrying conserva-
tive was NOT a conservative.  It was Roger Mahoney.  George wanted to be as
opposite from the Mahoney mindset as possible.  So, you can blame George's
politcal stance on Mahoney.

As we now know, Mahoney was an abuser of power.  Plus, you should read
some of Mahoney's directives, concerning the liturgy.  He is so ridiculously
picky and non-concise that it makes you throw up your hands and walk away.

Now, George's mistake is that he equates traditionalism with conservatism.  To
be a conservative is to be a miser with money.  To be traditional is to be one
who wants to go back to the first source of inspiration.

Remember this:  Traditional = getting back to one's roots.  Conservative = miser.
                Thus:  Traditional Good.                                       Conservative Evil.

The other thing that George doesn't understand is that the conservative movement
is perniciously anti-Catholic.  Conservatives don't want any authority telling them
anything.  No pope is going to tell them how to live.  Yet, they make Reagan their
pope.  They simply believe in a different pope.

None the less, George Neumayr is quite humane and quite well mannered.  The
intimidating thing about George is that he will instantly jump at the opportunity
to contact a news source, and George will seek to dig under the surface.  This
scares people who possess incriminating information.  When it comes to George
doing his journalistic interviews, he is blunt, honest, and expects that same in-
stant honesty from the person he is interviewing.   He is not a smooth-talking
snake when he does his investigative journalism.

All in all, the Wuerl People and the Donohue Camp, in my opinion, are afraid of
George's investigative bluntness.  George does seek to defend the Faith.  He does
recognize that there are clerics today who want to reform Catholicism into the
image and likeness of their own laziness, their pampered lifestyles, and skewed
senses.  Some of the hierarchs wanted to turn the hierarchy into the New Sodom.
By now, you should know this to have been the case.  After all, Cardinal Wuerl
welcomed Dignity Masses to Pittsburgh, as if to give his seal of approval to the
sin which caused the Eternal God to have angels turn Sodom and four similar
towns into sulfuric blast furnaces.

If George needs correction, then correct him.  Don't kill him.  The Wuerl People
and the Donohue Camp want George thrown out with the trash ... because he's a
threat to Wuerl and Donohue.  Thus, attacking George has been nothing more
than a strategic maneuver on the part of the Wuerl People and Donohue Camp.

As I previously stated, there are things that I must keep in confidentiality, con-
cerning Wuerl's corruption.  Now, there is more than enough at the Wuerlgate
site to prove Wuerl to be the malicious, living lie that he is.  So, I really don't
have to add anything else.  Concerning the things not yet conveyed by me, all
that I'm going to state is, "If you only knew."

Wuerl: A Dirty Sex Abuse Handling Record from Year 1.

Donald Wuerl was installed bishop of Pittsburgh on February 12, 1988.  It only
took eight months thereafter for the Diocese of Pittsburgh to become one of the  
first dioceses in America to be 'scathed' in what was to become a nationwide 
Watergate of perversity.  Wuerl was caught performing a triple cover-up, and
the practice of sadomasochism was one of the acts which transpired within a
trio of clergy members whom Wuerl unsuccessfully concealed from law en-
forcement authorities.  

Always keep in mind that the only reason why Wuerl was one of the first bish-
ops to announce a zero tolerance policy was because he was one of the very first
of American bishops caught red-handed in performing multiple and simultaneous 
cover-ups which included John Hoehl as Wuerl's fourth simultaneous cover-up.

Wuerl expressly put Hoehl back into ministry and immediately took Hoehl out
of the ministry line-up after DA John C. Pettit publicly announced that Wuerl
and his personnel were uncooperative during the criminal investigation which
resulted in the indictments of Wolk, Zula, and Pucci.

In as much, Wuerl had to put on airs and display a very fake facade, in announc-
ing a zero tolerance policy which he did NOT observe in his subsequent cover-up
of Frs. Edward Huff and James Torquato.  Wuerl is a liar by his actions.  Such
as a person known as a hypocrite.  Wuerl also chooses which Catholic doctrine
to observe and which one to violate.  Such a person is known as a heretic.

Concerning Wolk, Zula, and Pucci:

A member of the criminal trio was an assistant chancellor of Wuerl's diocese, as 
well as a canon lawyer.  This factor alone showed motive for proceeding with an 
intentional cover-up.  In fact, Wuerl vehemently defended his cover-up of Wolk,
in news print, claimed that the cover-up wasn't a cover-up.  Wuerl has been a liar
from the beginning.

The Sex Abuse Casualties

The casualties were two altar boys of the same family.  They were brothers. The 
years of molestation occurred from 1981 to 1987.  In addition to the three indict-
ed priests, there was a fourth alleged assailant reported to one of the three prose-
cuting district attorneys.  He was a layman.  Furthermore, there was a fourth dio-
cesan priest implicated, but only in his capacity as a probable accomplice; as a 
silent person who reported nothing to anyone.

Concerning this priest, he either allowed criminal conduct to transpire in a ski 

lodge suite where he was staying or else he was clueless to what was transpir-
ing there.  Nothing was established other than he was at the scene of the crime, 
going into his room, while a criminal priest was taking his altar boy into anoth-
er one.  

This fourth Pittsburgh diocesan priest, incidentally, was strangled to  death in 
Havana Cuba in 2001, after having been on administrative leave since 1996.  
A source informed me that Wuerl, himself, officiated as his funeral ... so stat-
ed the source.

While in Cuba, this priest was openly homosexual and was said to have "helped 

his visiting friends find sexual partners while they stayed in Havana."  He was 
the tragic Fr. George Zirwas, and at this point in the narration you should be at
the first stage in realizing that Lord Byron was more correct than he was mistak-
en when he stated that the truth is always strange; stranger than fiction.

Wuerl's unholy trinity

The indicted priests were Robert Wolk, Francis Pucci, and Richard "Sade" Zula.   

Wolk was the assistant chancellor and Zula was nicknamed after the Marquis de 
Sade.  All three priests were charged and arraigned in Washington County, PA.  
It's a county which touches the southwestern border of the Allegheny County 
where within sits Pittsburgh.  

Furthermore, Richard Zula was also arraigned east of Pittsburgh, in Somerset 
County.  Robert Wolk was indicted in Allegheny County, as well as in Wash-
ington County.   In fact, he was the first one to surrender himself to the police.  
Incidentally, the Diocese of Pittsburgh comprises the six most Southwestern 
counties of Pennsylvania.  Pennsylvania, at last count, has sixty-seven counties.

The front page of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette's November 11 edition of that

year gives light on how involved the criminal investigation was:  

        "Moreover, authorities said their investigation had uncovered
          evidence of similar offenses involving one of the priests that
          occurred elsewhere in southwestern Pennsylvania and Florida,
         Ohio, Virginia, and Canada.  Authorities in the jurisdictions
         have been contacted."

This shows that the matter was not taken lightly by law enforcement officials. 
In fact, the district attorney of Washington County prophetically stated,  "We  
would be sticking our heads in the sand to believe these are the only three 

Zula had 138 criminal counts filed against him in Washington Coun
ty, alone. 
However, a plea bargain reduced the counts to only two.   In sequence, Zula 
also plead guilty in Somerset County.  Now, as far as went Wolk, he plead 
guilty in Allegheny and Washington counties. 

Pucci's case, on the other hand, was dismissed due to the two year statute
limitations expiring on two types of criminal charges.   It expired approximate-
ly four months prior to his indictment.   He was indicted under the assumption 
that the time-keeping for the two year limit had frozen during the time Pucci 
was outside of Pennsylvania, in a Maryland psychiatric facility.  None the less,
conspiracy charges remained open for Pucci, and that particular crime had a 
five year limitation.   Despite this, Pucci's case was eventually dismissed.

Take note that, during the nationwide sex abuse scandal, priest after abusive

priest was sent to a psychiatric facility, as if each one were an unaccountable
victim of mental illness.  Now, there is a difference between mental illness
and sin.   If a person is insane, then he is without malice in a materially harm-
ful act, even though each member of society has the right to be made safe from
such a harmful person.   However, deception and manipulation, as much as
scheming and concealing, were committed by priest after abusive priest, and

such acts are elements of malice; not mental illness. 

In addition, these priests were described as having "compulsions" that required 
psychiatric treatment.  In the Catholic vernacular, such compulsions are known 
as temptations.

Wuerl and His Personnel:  Uncooperative During the 1988 Investigation

The Washington County district attorney announced that Wuerl's diocese en-

gaged in "foot dragging" throughout the criminal investigation.   The DA was
either irked or incensed by the Pittsburgh diocese's lack of cooperation, call-
ing it "minimal at best."   His quote on the topic goes as follows: "It was not
the spirit of cooperation we would like to see."  Of course,  "foot dragging"
is a polite way of saying "stonewalling" which, in turn, is a polite way of say-

ing "a step away from obstruction of justice charges."

Wuerl had pushed his luck to the limit.  Being that he was caught performing

a triple cover-up, and being that he was accused of having impeded a crimi-
nal investigation via stonewalling, he had no other choice than to strike the
pose of a strict disciplinarian.  This shows that Wuerl was not not not the
caring and concerned bishop that he was made out to be by the 21st Century
media.  Rather, he was a chameleon, looking out for himself.  He changed
colors according to the changes in the political climate.  In fact, he original-
ly presented himself as a "liberal."  He was then paraded around as a "con-
servative."  Wuerl has shown himself to be out for himself.  The following
mainstream media newspaper links provide the evidence:

From as far west as California's San Andreas Fault line, to as far east as the
New York metro area, Donald William Wuerl became an early chapter in the
Vatican II church's sex abuse history.  From as far south as the Florida Gulf
Coast, to as far north as Maine, Wuerl's diocese had already proven itself to
be what best selling author Malachi Martin would later say it was"... one
of the most pathetic dioceses in the United States."

Wuerl's violation of the Child Protective Services Act, as was addressed in one of the several newspapers that covered his Triple Cover-up

The pertinence of this revelation is that Ann Rodgers and other less than
conscionable members of the media made Wuerl out to be the all so car-
ing, loving, and concerned protector of youth.  He was headlined as the
bishop who fought the Vatican to remove "a molester priest," when the
fact was that he only attempted to have the priest removed for what was
later called a misdiagnosis of Depression and Suicidal Tendencies.  The
priest was never arrested, yet Wuerl let the papers claim that the priest

This also shows Wuerl's motive in letting Anthony Cipolla be the public
scapegoat whose reputation was completely annihilated, despite the evi-
dence indicating Cipolla to be opposite of the media smear campaign.
The district attorney mentioned in the article below was the one Wuerl
feared, because the DA contacted a number of other DA's in a number
of other states.  So, Wuerl needed a smokescreen, to deceive the public
into thinking that he was a holy holy and all so caring saint.  Wuerl did
nothing more than masquerade himself as an angel of light, at the ex-
pense  of others.

The newspaper jpegs above prove that the slightly built Donald Wuerl
thrived on a propaganda machine filled with sleight of hand deceptions
and direct falsehoods.

In addition, don't forget that he rode the coattails of John Cardinal Wright,
and without allegedly homosexual John Wright, the Donald Wuerl who
accommodated banned Dignity Masses for eight consecutive years would
have been  nothing more than a person sitting in the middle row of the typ-
ical Dignity Mass, if and only if the allegations conveyed to me between
1999 and 2002, as well as between 2009 and 2012 (concerning Wuerl) are
true.  If those allegations are not true, then Wuerl would have been nothing
more than commoner frequenting other venues.

It was the court system that prompted Wuerl to strike the pose of a strict
disciplinarian who would come to the rescue of the victims of predatory
priests ... but not as it applied to any victim over the age of 18.  None the
less, Wuerl's artificial pose did not occur until three simultaneous indict-
ments of three Pittsburgh priests occured under Wuerl's watch, coupled
with a DA John Pettit's public accusation that Wuerl's diocese performed
foot dragging.  Even in the Torquato Retaliations, we see Wuerl's willing-
ness to let justice be obstructed.

Keep in mind that there was no criminal investigation of Wolk, Zula,
and Pucci until the family of the two former altar servers reported the
matter to the police.  They did not do so until after Wuerl visited them.

In addition, Wuerl only went to the home of the traumatized family af-
ter their parish pastor was told by them that they were going to report
the three molester priests to law enforcement authorities.  Wuerl did
NOT report the molester trio.  He let them go about their ways.  Even
though Fr. Zula was sure to never return to ministry, on account of his
masochistic actions, Wolk and Pucci were in a position to eventually
ease back into ministry, in the spirit of John Hoehl and Edward Huff.

Do not be deceived.  Ann Rodgers made it sound as if Wuerl were a
strict disciplinarian who ousted Hoehl, as soon as he learned of him.
No, Wuerl placed Hoehl in chaplaincy ministry, as he did with Huff.

Now, Pgh Post Gazette reporter Ann Rodgers claimed that Wuerl had
an epiphany while visiting the traumatized family and then became the
"model of zero tolerance" thereafter.  This claim is easily proven false
by the fact that District Attorney John Pettit publicly announced that
Wuerl's then Diocese of Pittsburgh did NOT provide the cooperation
that the district attorney sought during the criminal investigation.  It
was a criminal investigation which didn't commence until someone
other than Wuerl notified the police.

If Donald Wuerl were the model of zero tolerance, he would have been
the one who reported Wolk, Zula, and Pucci.  Plus, Wuerl would NOT
have allowed the 'foot dragging' that a Western Pennsylvanian DA said
was being committed by Wuerl's diocese.

Sleight of Hand Deception: The Way of Cardinal Wuerl

         . . .  and abusing his easy access to the press:
                           The Way of Donald Wuerl.

Observe how Cardinal Wuerl started his habit of deception through sleight 

of hand semantics.  It began in Year 1 of his tenure in Pittsburgh.   Shortly
after Wolk was indicted, Donald Wuerl publicly stated "I know now, and 
have said to priests, that they cannot be reassigned."

Now, a morning commuter on a Pittsburgh metro line would have construed
the newspaper quotation as Wuerl telling the three molester priests that they
couldn't be reassigned to ministry.  This is wrong.  Look closer.   The opera-
tive word here is "now," while the operative phrase is "said to priests."  He
didn't speak the sentence to Wolk, Zula, and Pucci.  He spoke it to other 
priests, deceiving the public into thinking that he had no intention to put
back into ministry any of the three priests.  Wuerl's quote made him look 
like a zero tolerance bishop.  However, his quote was only a semantic trick.
After all, he already put John Hoehl back into chaplaincy ministry, despite
the fact that Anthony Bevilacqua removed him shortly before Bevilacqua
became archbishop of Philadelphia.

Wuerl didn't disclose the time when he said to unnamed priests that Wolk,

Zula, and Pucci couldn't be reassigned.  It could have been spoken the day
after Wolk was indicted.  In fact, the evidence shows this to be the case.
To start, Wuerl assigned the notorious John Hoehl to the Shadyside Hospi-
tal chaplaincy three months before Wolk was first indicted.  Thus, Hoehl's
reassignment went into effect four months before three Washington County
indictments were issued.  This shows that Donald Wuerl was very open to
the idea of reassigning molester priests even in the autumn of 1988.  There-
fore, Wuerl didn't tell any priests that Wolk, Zula, and Pucci couldn't be re-
assigned until after the indictment of Wolk ........ except for Zula, of course. 
Zula was a reputed sadist.  Wuerl drew the line with that type of behavior
at the time.   None the less, observe:

(1) John Hoehl was assigned to Shadyside Hospital in July.  (2) The first

indictment of Wuerl's molester trio was in October.  (3) On the day Wolk
was indicted, Hoehl was stationed at Shadyside Hospital.  (4) Despite the
Allegheny County indictment of Wolk, John Hoehl remained assigned to
the Shadyside hospital post.  (5) Approximately one month later came the
Washington County indictments.  For those unfamiliar, Washington County
is the one located below Allegheny County.  None the less, when Wolk, Zu-
la, and Pucci were simultaneously indicted, John Hoehl was still stationed
at Shadyside Hospital.  This means that Wuerl was engaged in molester re-
assignments even the day before his public statement.  That statement was a
deception.  Logic shows that it was spoken after the October 11 Allegheny
County indictment of Wolk.

Incidentally, Shadyside Hospital is located near Carnegie Mellon University

and the University of Pittsburgh.  Such universities are frequented by numer-
ous male youth, not unlike the ones John Hoehl was multiply accused of hav-
ing molested during his long tenure at Quigley High School, in Baden, PA.

According to courtroom testimony, the sadist Richard Zula was told that he

was not going to return to ministry, on April 4, 1988.  No such thing was ev-
er known to have been said to Wolk and Pucci.  Therefore, Donald Wuerl's
original way of handling molester priests is evident.   If an accused priest
were to receive a favorable prognosis from a psychiatric facility, then he
would be good to go into non-parish ministry.  If not, then the priest would
be ousted.  In light of this pattern, one can assume that any priest who used
whips and chains on an altar boy or two, as did Richard Zula, wouldn't get
a favorable prognosis from any psychiatric clinic.  Such a priest would not
have the sheet of paper which would serve the function of excuse for Wuerl;
as an excuse for reassigning a molester priest.

Wuerl's own Speech Gave Him Away

Observe this comment of Wuerl, spoken shortly after Wolk was indicted:

"That was his whole life.  Everything he was trained and called to
do.  To say he will not be reassigned is a devastating thing to do

This sounds like an excuse for not notifying a molester priest that he will

not be returning to ministry.  In as much, if a bishop would have said the
previous statement during 2002, he would have been soundly condemned
as a cover-up artist.  The link posted at the end of this section shows the
news report on this.

The Other Diocesan Excuse and the Contradiction in it

The official Pittsburgh diocesan spokesman made the following statement

shortly after Robert Wolk's October indictment:

          "We followed the lead of the alleged victims and the family.
            We had no desire to cause undue pain or anxiety to them,
            if they are not disposed to take public action themselves

This sounds like a very caring & compassionate excuse for keeping silent

in the matter of the Wolk, Zula, and Pucci abuses.   However, there is very
something wrong with this picture.  It would have caused undue pain and
anxiety for the family of the sex abuse casualties to have kept silent and re-
main acquiescent to Wuerl's will.   The presence of frustration, along with
the accompanying absence of peace would have built up inside each one of
them, like a malfunctioning nuclear reactor.

The family would also have spent the rest of their lives enduring the gnaw-

ing guilt of having let predators go camouflaged, ever able to snag further
prey in the future.  They would have also spent a lifetime feeling bullied
by the notably tiny Wuerl, in their keeping silent.  In fact, they would have
accumulated the fear of breaking silence, as time would go on.  All in all,
fear and resentment would have been theirs to carry for a lifetime, except
for the existence of the check and balance system deeply recessed in the
human soul by which a person can only take so much and then he has to

In addition, as soon as the two former altar boys became parties to a law-

suit, it instantaneously became illegal for anyone to harass them or attempt
to commit any type of undue influence upon them, in any capacity.  Such pro-
tection diminishes pain and anxiety considerably.  The two gentlemen were
presented to the public as John Does, and anonymity also relieves anxiety. 
Plus, a civil action results in monetary compensation, and the reasonable
expectation of a handsome income takes away annihilating stress, especial-
ly when co-defendants end up pleading guilty in criminal court, after having
negociated plea bargains.

In light of the aforementioned, do you really think that the diocesan spokes-

man was telling the truth when he said that the diocese continued with the
cover-up out of compassionate concern for the sex abuse casualties?  Well,
the diocesan spokesman contradicted Wuerl, because Wuerl said that he re-
mained silent for the sake priests whom he regarded as sick and suffering

Very simply, remaining silent about criminals who remain able to acquire
new sex abuse prey is what causes anxiety and undue pain.   When pain ac-
cumulates to the point of there being no more room to harbor it, the pain gets
so intense that it starts singing.  The Washington County sex abuse casualties
would have spoken up later in life, if they hadn't done so when they did.  This
is evidenced by the many sex abuse casualties who broke their silence years
after the fact. 

A Revisionist Article which Even Changed the Time Lines

In 2005, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review provided a very false statement, in

saying that Wolk and Zula were convicted in 1987.  This made it look as if
Wuerl had nothing to do with the cover-up of them, being that he didn't start
his Pittsburgh tenure until 1988.  Therefore, that article made it look as if he
had a crystal clean sex abuse record.  Perhaps the author of the misleading
article was deceived into thinking that Wuerl couldn't have possibly been
part of any cover-up, so the author assumed that the convictions occurred
before Wuerl's arrival.  Or maybe he was an intentional liar.

One thing about Wuerl is certain.  He wasn't the lionhearted protector of the

Southwestern Pennsylvania's most vulnerable.  Nor was he motivated by a
visit to the family of two molested altar boys.  This is evidenced by the fact
that he reassigned Fr. Edward Huff to ministry years after the visit.  This is
also evidenced by the fact that Wuerl made Fr. Torquato a parish pastor.

The Father Edward Huff case: Shows that Donald Wuerl did NOT reform, even after the indictments of Fathers Wolk, Zula, & Pucci.

Wuerl was protecting Fr. Huff in a cover-up, while defying the Vatican's
mandate to reinstate Anthony Cipolla back into the priesthood ministry.
Yet, he had the audacity to let Ann Rodgers call him a zero tolerance bishop.

                            Introduction to the Edward Huff Case

Toward the end of his first year as bishop of Pittsburgh, Wuerl made
a state-
ment that would lead reasonable persons to assume that he was resolved to
never reassign a molester priest to ministry.  Wuerl was apparently employ-
ing the sleight of hand semantics, being that he embarked on another cover-
up; that of Father Edward Huff.   In that case, Wuerl reassigned Fr. Huff to
ministry the same year Wuerl received accusations against Huff.  He did so, 
after Huff had a stay in a St. Louis psychiatric facility.

I used to call the Huff Case Wuerl's musical chairs cover-up.  Well, it was
actually Wuerl's Game of Pong ... Wuerl's Ping Pong Cover-up, where Huff
was like a ping pong ball, going from St. Louis to Pgh to St. Louis to Pgh.
Pgh stands for Pittsburgh ... for those unaware.

The Specifics of the Huff Case

In February 1992, two families, days apart, reported Huff.  Donald Wuerl

responded by doing the type of thing that Bernard Cardinal Law repeatedly
did in Boston.  Wuerl sent Huff to a psychiatric facility; to one in St Louis,
named Saint Michael's.  The prognosis was that Huff had sufficient residu-
al functional capacity to perform some type of ministry.  So, in November
1992, Wuerl assigned Huff to a chaplaincy post and provided him with liv-
ing quarters in downtown Pittsburgh.

In December 1992, additional parishioners from Huff's parish sent Wuerl

a letter that accused Huff of molestation.   This was the third time Edward
Huff was reported, and this was when Wuerl realized that the cat was out
of the bag.  There were enough people who knew of Huff's transgressions
that at least one of them would inform the police should Wuerl's diocese
decline to do so.  Thus, this was when Wuerl's Get Out of Jail Free Card

Wuerl did not immediately report Huff to law enforcement authorities, de-

spite the fact that a third set of parishioners sent a complaint against him. 
Rather, Huff was sent back to Saint Michael's, despite the positive bill of
health that was already given to him by the St. Louis facility.  This shows
that sending Huff back to Saint Louis was a strategic move, and not a med-
ical necessity.

It wasn't until March 1993 when the Pittsburgh diocese finally reported Fr. 

Edward Huff to law enforcement authorities.  This means that he was not
reported until thirteen months after Wuerl learned of his misconduct.  By
that time, Edward Huff had already submitted his resignation.

As a subtotal, Fr. Edward Huff wasn't arrested until fifteen months after
was reported by the Diocese of Pittsburgh to the required law enforcement
entities.  Take note that Edward Huff was not arrested until 28 months after
Wuerl learned of his predatory acts.   In addition, March 1993 had addition-
al significance to it.  It was the month when the Vatican's version of the U.S.
Supreme Court ruled on the Cipolla case for the first time.  March 1993 was
when Donald Wuerl appealed to the Vatican Signatura, asking it to vacate its
judgment of the Cipolla case and to review the case anew.  In light of this,
Huff was too much of a hot potato for Wuerl to keep concealing.

The time delay in the Fr. Edward Huff case provided a smoke screen to the

fact that Wuerl found himself cornered and checkmated during yet another
botched cover-up attempt.  So, take note on how Wuerl sought to manipulate
time lines, in order to look diligent and trust-worthy --- in order to distance
his tracks from his original handling of the Fr. Huff case.  In addition, keep
in mind that Wuerl and company had already been accused of stonewalling
(foot dragging) in a previous case.  This means that giving Wuerl credit for

having reported Edward Huff was equivalent to giving a bank robber credit
for stopping a bank robbery the moment he finds himself surrounded by a
circle of police cars and then drops the sacks of money he was holding.
