The Blatant Fallacies in the Randy Engel Article of Nov 2016

Needed:  A rest from all this bull (censored) put forth by
Randy Engel and through Diane Thompson, at the behest
of the pushy and less-than-courteous New Jersey Conspiracy
Theory Housewife.  Reading the Engel article for ten minutes
is grounds for suicide.  How stupid can some people be?
This is exasperating.  It's beyond aggravating.  The Randy Engel article, as far
as concerns Engel's assertions of the criminal procedure that transpired against
one Anthony Cippola in 1978, were 100% FALSE!!!!!   A person  coming out
of a coma and who previously had only one semester of one law course would
have instantly been able to tell that the article is a complete and  total lie ......
..... as far as concerned the narration of an arrest that never happened in 1978
and the "dropping of criminal charges" by a civilian's signature on legal papers,
thereby effecting the end of a criminal case which happens NOWHERE in the
United States of America, at the stroke of any civilian's pen.  How stupid do the
followers of Randy Engel and the readers of Renew America Magazine insist
on being, not to mention editor Matt Abbott who should have known better???

As far as goes the accusations against Cipolla, then-Bishop Vincent Leonard,
an alleged 70 year old store owner located on, of all places, the super long Cal-
ifornia Avenue, and others, watch those allegations get picked apart, if I get the
time to do so.  But First:

Let's start with the quote of an actual law firm's information page, explaining
basic law to laymen and laywomen everywhere  ::::::   In explaining American
law and American legal procedure to people void of any formal, apprenticed,
or self-taught law education.  We will begin with the law firm's explanation of
the "filing and dropping charges," and its exact quote.  It, alone, should shut up
Randy Engel's followers and it's found at:

Who makes the decision whether to press charges?

Only the prosecuting attorney's office has the authority to bring  or "press" criminal charges. Many victims of crimes believe they have the power to "press" or "drop" charges.  This is not true.   Although a victim cannot drop charges, they can (and often do) influence the prosecutor's decisions.  It is also a common misconception that the police file charges.   This also is not true.
I explained all of this previously.  Then came Randy Engel, appointing herself the
end-all-of-all-judgments-of-Anthony Cipolla.  Writings that I did went ignored,
and Randy was regarded as the grand judge who must not be questioned.

Let the aforementioned teaching of a law firm seep into you, along with the realiza-
tion that Diane Thompson's harrowing tale of being forced to drop criminal charges
that were NOT yet filed, if they ever would have been, was a bunch of bull crap.
She did NOT have the power to file or drop charges.  Got it yet????????

A Further Example of a Bull Crap Narration in the 
Confidently, if not arrogantly, Written Engel Article.

Randy Engel claimed that Cipolla was arrested and taken to Police Station #9 on the
North Side.   But, the historic Station #9 was actually on Mount Washington, on the
South Side of Pittsburgh.  None the less, Engel declaratively stated that Cipolla was
arrested, taken to Station Number 9, charged, and released by the police on his own
"cognizance," by which he was to wait for his arraignment."  Now Engel did mention
"preliminary arraignment," but she did so out of context.

For starts, it's known as being released on your own REcognizance ... NOT cog-
nizance.  It's known as an ROR.  (Release on Recognizance.)

2} ONLY a magistrate can order an ROR.  NOT police.  As you read above, and
as you read from a licensed law firm, police do NOT file charges.  Civilians such
as the intolerable Diane Thompson do NOT file charges or "press charges," either.
Thus, police do NOT order a defendant to be released on his own REcognizance.
Engel was, once again, asininely wrong.

3} an arraignment must occur within 72 hours of an arrest.  They most often oc-
cur within 18 hours.

4}  This is the most important part, stated directly below:

Do you really think that any law enforcement official would let a man charged
with children molestation walk away on his own REcognizance and not be re-
quired to post a significantly high priced bond???   Do you really think that a
person charged with committing consummate physical harm on a child is go-
ing to walk out of a magistrate's office without first paying a significant bond?

Listen:  During one of my theater-audience-sized-classroom college classed, the
attorney/professor teaching us - who is now a judge - suddenly stopped writing on
the blackboard, turned around, and said to the effect, "You know, in Pennsylvania, 
the courts will tolerate a lot of shenanigans.  But, they will NOT tolerate physical 
violence."   Thus, Randy Engel's mention that Anthony Cipolla was released on his
own "cognizance" was another instance where her Cipolla article-to-end-all-articles
was sheer bull crap.

There are more examples that show how pathetically written was Engel's arrogant-
ly written article.  I told you that I can shred it line-iten by line item, if given the
opportunity to do so.  Be patient and let the quoted teaching of a licensed law firm
above be a consolation to you who thought that Diane Thompson and Tim Bendig
were nothing but two compulsory liars.

Now, I am NOT saying that Cipolla is innocent as accused.  But, I am saying that,
if he did molest anyone, it did NOT "go down" the way Thompson and Engel de-
scribed it.

Keep in mind that the October 13, 1995 Pittsburgh Post Gazette article, at pages
A-16 and A-17 show how Thompson changes her story as a matter of habit.

One more quick point:

In that article Randy Engel, stated that, in January of 2016, her good good friend
... the New Jersey Conspiracy Theory Battle Ax ... dropped the bomb and told her,
apparently for the first time, that Cipolla did go to Jersey after Wuerl defrocked
him and tried to get a teaching job from a home schooling program.

NEWSFLASH:  I reported on that event in the Year 2011, even quoting what the
witness told me about that meeting.  There is mention of it on this fifth edition of
Wuerlgate.  As you can see, either Engel is lying or she is five years behind me.

For those not familiar, I used to publish what Randy Engel would send me, doing
so on my Virgin Mary website.  i did this in 2011 and 2012, before I embarked on
my 12,000 mile road trip which took me from coast to coast to coast of America.

That which was so arrogant of Engel was in her stating that she didn't need to write
"alleged" in her article, due to the evidence she saw in the Cipolla Case.  She made
it look as if she saw multiple pieces of evidence which undeniably prove Cipolla's
guilt.  Then, Engel stated in the same article that only ONE piece of evidence in
the Cipolla Case remained.

Well, it wasn't evidence, being it was the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s version of the
private criminal complaint.  I filled-out that type of form a couple of times in my

So, in review, Engel first says that she saw enough evidence to conclude that Ci-
polla was as guilty as sin. She then said that there was only one piece of evidence
remaining to see.

I already posted the blatant proof that accuser Tim Bendig lied to the public.
It was him taking the settlement money that he said he was going to use on
intense psychotherapy and spending it on the Two Step Lounge that he pur-
chased from the Levitske Brothers.  This, alone, proved him to be a con art-

There was a lot of arrogance in Engel, as well as disingenuous writing.  For
example, she failed to post a photocopy of the plaque of appreciation that the
Oakland New Jersey Police gave to Cipolla, for his success in developing a
large youth group program.  The plaque destroyed Engel's arrogant claim that
Cipolla was nothing but a depraved pervert all the days of his life.  In those
days, he certainly was NOT accused of molesting anyone.  The POLICE
affirmed it, by giving Cipolla the plaque they give him.

There is much more to convey to you, concerning the disingenuous article of
Randy Engel.  Even at that, Ciolla's guilt in this matter can NOT be ruled out.
Neither can his innocence in this matter.  As I previously stated elsewhere, the
famed investigative journalist, Jason Berry, said that this case was "peculiar
from the start."

Plus, Engel created suspicion by stating that Cipolla had too many parish as-
signments in too short a time span.  She silently suggested that it was because
of molestation.  Well ladies and gentlemen, there was a pattern to Cipolla's as-
signments that went over Engel's head.  It goes like this:

Cipolla was a "country boy" from Hopewell Pennsylvania.  It appeared that he
liked to be stationed in those parishes which seemed as close to living in the
country as a city diocesan priest could get.

If he were really set on being stationed in parishes that were smorgasbords of
molestation with an ample supply of boys to molest, then why did he spend his
seminary days in the hopes of becoming a missionary who would be assigned
to super poor parts of the world??????  I'm not saying that he is innocent.  But,
I am saying that Randy Engel is nothing but a

                            KANGAROO COURT STENOGRAPHER
                                 FORTH POINT & COUNTERPOINT ...
                                  only a prejudiced & one-sided view.

I have to go right now.  We are having a bit of an incapacitating snow storm here in
Chicago this weekend.  None the less, if you want to learn real law, and see exactly
how the assertions in the Randy Engel article are either total bull crap or thing high-
ly unlikely to have occurred, while accepting the possibility that Cipolla just might
have molested a least one of Diane Thompson's son, then come back to this web

If you don't want to come back and if you don't want to learn true American law,
in preference for insisting that Cipolla was guilty without convincing evidence,
then know this:  You make me sick.
Pittsburgh from the Birmingham Bridge.

Proof Blatant that Bendig was lying to the public, all along

This is where they would have locked Cipolla up,
if ..................................................
According to the Randy Engel, Tim Bendig was molested by Anthony Cipolla
and was hurting badly.  According to Randy, Bendig was destroyed by sexual
abuse, therefore it wasn't any surprise that Bendig filed a civil action against
Cipolla and his employers.

The media kept reporting that Tim Bendig was suing Cipolla and the Diocese
of Pittsburgh for the money needed to go through intense psychiatric therapy. 
And the media literally stated "intense" in print.

For years, Bendig was telling the media that he badly needed the money for
badly needed psychotherapy, being that he was badly hurting from Cipolla's
evil actions upon his vulnerable personage.  The media kept reminding the
public that the ability to pay for intense medical expenses is what Bendig's
reason-for-suing was.  This was told by the media often enough for it to be-
come the refrain of a multi-stanza song.

Well, such intense therapy really does cost significant amounts of money.
Therefore, the Diocese of Pittsburgh just had to cough up the money need-
ed for the always-honest Tim Bendig to receive unparalleled treatment.  So,
Donald Wuerl delivered.  Oh yes.  He settled the case out of court, seeing to
it that Bendig would receive a settlement in the six-figure range --- that is to
say, in the hundreds of thousands  of dollars range.

So there he was, Tim Bendig, endowed and empowered with six-figures of
American dollars, after, of course, Attorney Douglas Yauger took his hand-
some share of the settlement.  None the less, it was now a sure thing for all
so poor Tim Bendig.  It was a smooth trip to the psycho-therapists' clinic. 
Go Timmy.  Go.

Bendig now had clear Sailing.  He had daylight from where he was standing
to the psycho-therapy clinic.  So, Timothy Bendig took his checkbook and
marched off . . . . . . to the Levitske Brothers and purchased the Two-Step
Lounge with the money he told the public that was going to be used for
intense psychotherapy.

Ladies & gentlemen Tim Bendig was lying to the public all along.  The fact
that he rushed off and blew his settlement money on the Two-Step Lounge
proves that he was NOT hurting at all, in any capacity.  That purchase de-
stroyed his credibility.  And siding with the publicly proven liar, Tim Ben-
dig, destroyed Randy Engel's credibility in the minds of anyone who is not
a cultish follower of her.

Do you still regard Randy Engel the end-all of all existence?  Do you still
think that she covered all bases, presented both sides of the argument, and
reported on the Cipolla Case is a non-biased way?

She posted the Cipolla appreciation plague from Saint Bernard's parish, but
did NOT show her readers the plaque of appreciation that was given to Ci-
polla by the Oakland New Jersey Police.  POLICE gave him a plaque.
Did Randy mention this?

Ladies & Gentlemen, Anthony Cipolla is dead.  Father James Torquato is
still in active ministry and Engel NEVER wrote about him.  Chicago's
Mike Volpe wrote about Torquato.  Why did Engel never do so?

ADDED NOTES:  I will, when the time and opportunity presents itself
to me, to fully respond, line item by line item to Randy Engel's damning
article against Anthony Cipolla which Matt Abbott posted at the Renew
America site.  For now, a few notes:

In re: Mention was made that Anthony Cipolla was to be arraigned at
Police Station #1:

Oh yes, arraignment dids and do take place at police stations ... in places
like Melbourne Florida, where there is a significant distance from major
metropolitan areas such as Atlanta, Philadelphia, Cincinnati, and Pitts-
burgh.  In Pittsburgh, arraignments occur in magistrate offices or in the
Court of Common Pleas.

I have to go, right now.  I shall return ... maybe before sub-zero temper-
atures hit Chicago next week as forecast.  I guess this means that all of
the Global Warming meetings will be canceled next week.

By the way, I was NOT a follower of Cipolla.  I did NOT think that he
was among the holiest on Earth.  It's just that I did some fact-checking,
based on a tip, and found her to be a liar.

December 27, 2016

Update: New Randy Engel Article: Fact-checked falsehoods w/ contradictions of previous testimony

Pittsburgh:  Where Wuerl severely abused his position.
Thesis Statement:

The November 2016 article of Randy Engel proved how much of a liar is Di-
ane Thompson, because the allegations of Diane Thompson stated in Randy
Engel's article contradicts the October 13, 1995 article that quoted Thompson
on two pages of newspaper print.

Whether Cipolla committed molestation or not, Diane Thompson IS a liar, and
I concur with famed journalist Jason Berry, of Maciel Fame, on this case.  Mr.
Berry stated that the Cipolla Case was a "peculiar one from the start."  My ex-
act quote on the case was that:

If Cipolla did molest and then harass anyone, it was not the way Diane Thomp-
son narrated it.  I also said:  This is the one case where you can't believe any-
one who was there in 1978, with any degree of confidence.
I was alerted to the existence of a November 2016 article by Randy Engel
where within she claimed to have interviewed one of Diane Thompson's
two sons.  It would sound like a trustworthy article consisting of true alle-
gThompson's past accusations, and it contained new allegations which were
fact-checked and proven false.  The allegations of criminal procedure do
NOT correlate with the actual Pennsylvania Rules of Criminal Procedure.

In order to cut to the chase and give examples of the falsehoods which appear
in the November 2016 Engel article, it was alleged by Diane Thompson that
she had to pay a $45 admission fee, in order for her eldest son, Frank, to go
to the Michigan summer camp that was held on the seminary grounds of the
Pontifical Institute for Foreign Missions.  She made herself out to be the har-
rowed and heavily burdened martyr who had to sacrifice greatly, to pay the
$45 admittance fee.

NEWSFLASH:  I am in contact with a family who has two sons who were 
in Cipolla's company very often.  One of the two gentlemen attended the 
exact same Michigan seminary summer camp as did Diane Thompson's
eldest son, though in a different year.  This particular youth traveled to
Michigan with the Tim Bendig who claimed to have been molested by Ci-
polla for consecutive years.   According to that gentlemen and his mom,  
they did NOT have to pay any $45 fee.  Diane Thompson lied yet again.

Furthermore, the gentleman said that NOTHING suspicious between
Cipolla and Bendig was ever observed by him.  However, he did say,
"Tim was weird.   Really weird."  Furthermore, he stated that Cipolla
never tried anything on him.  He is in the approximate, though general,
age range as is Frank Labieaux, the son whom Thompson claims was
molested by Cipolla in Michigan.

At this point, it is important for the reader to know of the existence of the long
Pittsburgh Post Gazette which quotes Diane Thompson's damning allegations
against Anthony Cipolla and then-Bishop Vincent Leonard, all the while keep-
ing Thompson's name anonymously held in confidence.  It appeared in the

Pages A-16 and A-17, as well as the front page.

As an example of how the Engel article contradicts the allegations of Diane
Thompson in the October 13, 1995 Pittsburgh Post Gazette article that at-
tacks Cipolla's character to the depths:

IN the October 1995 Pittsburgh Post Gazette article, Thompson stated that
she had TWO daughters in a "first marriage" and TWO sons in a "second
marriage."  IN the Nov 2016 Engel article, Thompson claimed to have three
sons and one daughter, and that Tucker Thompson and Frank Labieaux 
had different dads.  According to her in 1995, Frank and tucker had the 
same dad.

The fact is the she did have three sons, and one of the three's 2009 obituary 
can be readily found online.  Nothing about his death is mentioned.  In as much,
Thompson lied to the Pittsburgh Press on that allegation.

As another example, the Engel article alleged that Cipolla was taken into police
custody, thereby being officially arrested.  The Engel article then stated that the
same Anthony Cipolla was released on his own "cognizance," and was told to
reappear for his arraignment.  Stop there.  This is the writing of someone who
does not know the Pennsylvania Rules of Criminal Procedure.

Firstly, a person is only released on his own recognizance by a judge at the
person's arraignment.  The arraignment is simply the bail hearing where it's 
surmised if the defendant is 1} a flight risk, 2} a danger, 3} no physical
threat, etc.  The defendant is also checked if he/she has to automatically
be placed on "detainer."  For example, if the defendant was arrested 
while being on parole, that person gets an automatic detainer.  If that 
is the case, then the defendant is denied bail.

When you are officially arrested, you are held overnight, and then sent to 
your arraignment pronto.   You don't go home and wait for arraignment, 
BECAUSE the arraignment is the official assessment that sees if you get
to go home, in the first place.

The Engel article also stated that detectives from Police Station #9 were sent
to Cipolla's Northside residence.

Firstly, there are only SIX police zones in Pittsburgh.  The North Side of 
Pittsburgh is Zone #1 ... not #9. 

Now, in Pittsburgh Police history,  Police Station #9 was/is located on Mount
Washington, in the South Side of Pittsburgh, and NOT on the North Side of
Pittsburgh, as Randy Engel claimed.

PLUS, PLUS, PLUS:  Engel stated that there was one piece of evidence that re-
remained in tact, certain the Diane Thompson case that accused Cipolla of moles-
tation.  It was the Offense/Incidence Reportsigned by a couple detectives.

Uhhhhm,  ladies and gentlemen, that is NOT evidence.  That is the PRIVATE 
CRIMINAL COMPLAINT FORM as was used in the 1970s.  I filled out a
couple of those Offense/Incidence Report, in order to have criminal charges
filed against certain persons.  I'm no stranger to it.  

All in all, there is a difference between the accusation and the evidence.  That 
sheet was the accusation.  It was NOT the police officer's or detective's affi-
davit.  Proof consists in the fact that, at the right hand side of the paper, 
there is a box where it is asked, "Do you want to prosecute."

Now, police NEVER prosecute.  Thus, no page of legal procedure will ask a
policeman if he/she wants to prosecute.  It is a question to civilians.  I already
explained how the Private Criminal Complaint works in Pennsylvania.  For
starters, the initial paperwork is filed at a magistrate's office.  Diane Thomp-
son neglected to tell any journalist that she was in need of filing at Baldy
Reagan's office.  Baldy Reagan was a Pittsburgh magistrate.

In as much, a detective might have filled it out for a citizen who had trouble
filling it out, or a detective might have dictated what the citizen needed to
write.  It was not his legally binding testimony.

None the less, a question should immediately pop into your mind.  Q: Why 
would a citizen go to a magistrate to fill out a private criminal complaint 
form if he/she doesn't want to prosecute?  

ANS:  For insurance claim purposes.  The last time we had a police officer at
the Pittsburgh office, in reporting yet another burglary, we were asked if we want-
ed an investigation or if we just wanted a police report (with official CCR number)
to give to the insurance adjustors.

There are more ways to convince people who have no legal training that the report
to which Engel referred was NOT a police officer's report but only the private crim-
inal complaint

Once again, the thing which Randy Engel falsely called evidence was nothing
more than the private criminal complaint form.  In fact, it contains blocks
were the private citizen writes in the witnesses to the wrongs done, and their
contact information.

Cipolla was NEVER arrested or charged.  He was merely served a Summary 
Notice signed by Diane Thompson which instructed him to show up in City 
Court for a MOTIONS HEARING ... aka "Probable Cause Hearing" which
had the equal effect of a preliminary hearing.

It was part of a private citizen's private criminal complaint, where Thomp-
son was required to show due cause as to why the presiding judge was to 
"Issue Process" and have Anthony Cipolla indicted and arraigned.  But,
Diane Thompson withdrew her private criminal complaint shortly before 
the Motions Hearing, aka the hearing equivalent to a quasi-preliminary
lhearing.  Anthony Cipolla was NEVER in handcuffs.

The 2016 Engel article mentions that Diane Thompson remarried in 1984.
The 1995 Pittsburgh Post Gazette NEVER mentioned this.  Instead, it stat-
ed that the "second marriage" guy was coming in and out of her life even in
1995.  Now, if that was happening, it was a bizarre setting of two de facto
husbands at the same time in her life.

Even at that, there are a string of contradictions of Thompson's allegations.
Here is another example:

I have digital evidence that it was alleged directly to me by a confidant of Di-
ane Thompson that Tucker told Diane that Anthony Cipolla had sores all over
his body.  NOW . . .

In the Engel article of 2016, the damning allegation was that Cipolla played
proctologist and invaded Tucker's private regions with one hand, while doing
an invasive sexual act upon Tucker front side with the other hand.  This would
mean that Cipolla was clothed.  So, how could Tucker see the sores?

In the 2016 Engel article, Thompson alleged that Frank Labieaux went to live
in Florida after being arrested for vandalizing a neighboring church.  She then
said that Frank called her from Florida, to tell her what Cipolla allegedly did
to him.  Well . . .

In the 1995 Post Gazette article, Thompson alleged that she sat down BOTH
of her sons, telling them that they were going to have to put the Cipolla inci-
dent out of their minds.  In order to do that, Frank had to have been in Pitts-
burgh.  So, where was he?  In Florida of Pittsburgh?  

Take note that, in the 1995 article she said that she only had TWO sons.  She had
three, one of whom died in 2009.  There is no information in print as to how he
died.  None the less, she had three sons and told the Post Gazette that she
only had two.

The falsehoods and contradictions go on and on and on and on, in the November
2016 Engel article.  It severely contradicted the 1995 article that the Pittsburgh
Post Gazette published on the subject.  It was the article where Diane Thompson
was quoted as having alleged overly-theatrical things, while keeping Thompson's
name confidential.

The November 2016 article attributed to Randy Engel was at variance, in pertinent
part, with Diane Thompson's own 2015 & 2016 web log posts, as well.  It was also
different, in specific part, from the narration that Thompson gave to a certain per-
son who asked to be kept in anonymity.

The article was also at variance, in part, with the contents of the harassing, rude, and
derisive emails that Thompson sent to me in 2015.  I was compelled to block her in
short order, being that she was so podunk-trash-crass and intrusive.  The woman has
no temperance, to say the least.

When a Retraction is Needed

I learned from my lawyer conference that a person must first give a writer or editor
or published the opportunity to make retractions.  And the need must be stated in

As an example in the Year 2015, someone not related to the Cipolla case wrote to
me about another subject about which I wrote.  That person definitively stated what
needed to be changed the third time he wrote to me.  I then changed what needed
to be changed on his third communication, being that the first two were too vague.
So, if there is an error on this site that needs correction, simply state it specifically
and get to the point.  I will then change it, if what you state it true.  If it's plausible,,
but not proven true, I'll add 'alleged.'

All that Diane Thompson did was attack and ridicule me.  Her first sentence to me
contained "bull s**t."  She didn't state what was erroneously stated in as far as went
names, dates, locations, spelling, etc.  She simply attacked my character.  If she only
would have acted civilized on the first, second, or even third email, I would have had
a series of conversations with her.  However, she is a liar, whether Cipolla molested
her two sons or not.  Her account of the Cipolla transactions, as appeared in the Pitts-
burgh Post.

Now, every time Thompson speaks to someone new, she tells a new and amended
story about Cipolla and her family.  Cipolla, on the other hand, to ld the same story,
inserting the same names, over and over.  It had gotten to the point where Cipolla
would tell me the same story, and I would start reciting it word-for-word.  He re-
sponded once by saying, "I'm trying to talk here," upon which I realized that he
kept telling me the same set of stories for the sake of emotional release.


Thompson said to a Pittsburgh Post Gazette journalist in 1995 that then-Bishop
Vincent Leonard instilled a sense of guilt in Diane Thompson for filing what
the Post Gazette in 1978 stated was a Summary Notice and what the 1995 Post
Gazette stated was the "filing of criminal charges."  Thompson said that Vincent
Leonard said that the Church had just lost two popes and her suffering greatly.
Well, the second pope to die in 1978 wasn't even elected pope yet.  This proved
Diane Thompson to be a liar.

Well, in the 2016 Randy Engel article, it is alleged that Bishop Leonard only
pointed out the one death of Paul VI.  Thus, Thompson changed her story yet

In addition, it was proven that the Vatican Case against Cipolla only dealt
with his diagnosis of Depression & Suicidal Tendencies, given by a doctor
of St. Luke's in Maryland.  It was a Psychic Defect case and did NOT cover

Plus, Ann Rodgers of the Post Gazette stated that Wuerl went to Rome with
a Police Arrest Report in his brief case.  No such thing exists in PA law.

I have to go, right now.

December 25, 2016

In newspapers from coast to coast. Yet, Pittsburghers are CLUELESS.

A case-in-point on how a liar's localized propaganda machine can create
smoke screens that hide the power mongering liar's evils from the public.
Pittsburghers were clueless about Wolk, Zula, Pucci and others of evil intent.

In re: The Wolk, Zula, Pucci Cover-up and resultant indictments, along with DA
John C Pettits bitter complaint about Wuerl's degree of uncooperativeness with
law enforcement officials :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

I literally could not find anyone in Pittsburgh who knew about it.  This is how
intense the Wuerl Propaganda Machine worked ... in covering up something al-
ready uncovered.

Keep in mind that the Year 2002 was the year when the sex abuse scandal went
international.  It was also the year when Cardinal Wuerl stole the spotlight from
the deeply suffering sex abuse casualties and then had certain media people toot
his horn, by claiming accomplishments that never transpired.  No one in the media
mentioned Wuerl's UNcooperativeness with law enforcement officials during his
cover-up of Wolk, Zula, and Pucci.

In like fashion, no one in the media admitted that Wuerl reinstated into ministry
a fourth criminal priest, namely John Hoehl, a former Catholic high school head-

Plus, no one in the 2002 media revealed that U.S. Supreme Court briefs were in
Washington DC  with Wuerl's name throughout them, as aggressor, on account
of Wuerl's cover-up of the intrusive homosexual Fr. James Torquato, a retaliator
who literally almost got someone either seriously injured or killed.  Literally.

The following internet post was a mind-blowing revelation when it was originally
posted, because, until that time, America was deceived into thinking that Donald
Wuerl was a heroic zero tolerance bishop with a perfectly clean sex abuse hand-
ling record.  No one knew that Wuerl was the SECOND American bishop to get
caught covering-up criminal priests and the first one accused of being uncooper-
ative with police during a criminal investigation.

All in all, this post is here to show how insufferably dishonest is and was Wuerl's
propaganda machine.  Through surrogates, he incessantly lied to the public, de-
ceiving people into thinking that he was a holy, caring man.  Then came the truth
about Wuerl.  And the Vatican seemed not to care about the damage, deprivation,
and even jeopardization (the Torquato Retaliations) that Wuerl caused.  The Vati-
can has become Wuerl's accessory as much as it was the accessory of internation-
al molester Marcial Maciel Degollado.  Thus, this is an Evidence Webpage.

A reflection of the Pittsburgh Roman Catholic cathedral in plate glass.
Intro:  It's amazing how Vatican officials, Americans, Pennsylvanians, and
Pittsburgh residents in particular were clueless to the fact that Cardinal Wuerl
was caught in a triple cover-up which resulted in three of his Pittsburgh priests
being multiply indicted in more than one Pennsylvania county.  This is because
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 Northwestern Ohio to Chicago to California ... and
from Cleveland to Saint Petersburg to San Antonio.  The reports were even in the
now-defunct Pittsburgh Press, as well as the Pgh Post Gazette.

The fourth simultaneous priest under Wuerl's covers:

The fourth priest was a high school headmaster who caused a lot of students
to become emotionally traumatized later in life.  The headmaster was my head-
master and the rumors about him abounded after high school.  Yet, during the
school years, the rumors were sparse, and I refused to believe them at the time.

Yours truly receiving his diploma from the John Hoehl whom Wuerl  put back
into ministry, thereby showing that Wuerl was  NO zero tolerance bishop.  I heard
rumors about Hoehl during high school, but they weren't frequent and  not detailed.
I simply didn't think that any priest would be what the rumors accused him of being.
Well, one of the young men to spend time 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, and it was assumed that he punched Hoehl, in the
effort to fend off a physical intrusion.

In the final moment, the young man looked at me with a facial expression which
said,  "It's okay.  It doesn't matter anymore."  Two hours later, he was dead.

Years later, I was told of yet another football teammate allegedly committing
suicide, on account of mental trauma.  I couldn't confirm or dispel the allegation.

After that came my conversation with someone I once coached in basketball who
was psychologically damaged by the exact same headmaster.  Incidentally, I was
a basketball coach when I was a teenager, going up against coaches in their 30s,
40s, and 50s, ending up with a record of nine wins and five losses.  I mention this
to show that I was in high school during that priest's rampage with my teammates
and fellow students.  Yet, those youth were willing participants, after a seduction
phase, of course.

Next came a class reunion and the face of yet another former football teammate
who also was allegedly one of Hoehl's play toys.  He was a linebacker and I re-
member him giving me the cheapest shot on the football field, during a scrim-
mage.  In fact, there was a notable distance and aloofness between the two of
us during high school, meaning that an act of goodwill or compassion from me
at the school reunion would have had a tremendous effect.

Anyway, his look was the look of emotional devastation and shame, as well as
remorse.  And of course, I remained completely diplomatic, so as to not increase
the guy's existing pain.  I should have walked up to him and said, "Hey man, it's
okay.  Don't worry about it."  I didn't want to open any emotional wounds.  Plus,
my girlfriend at the time was raised in an entirely different part of Pittsburgh, and
she was clueless as to what was going on at the reunion, as she went about being
exremely pleasant and cordial to all of my classmates.  She was superb that night.
I didn't want to disturb her.  I never told her, being that I was never molested by
the molesting headmaster,  So, I remained silent at the reunion when I should have
gone up to talk to the guy.

In comparison,  Ann Rodgers' snow job on the Pittsburgh people was worse.
Wuerl couldn't have gotten the idolatrous image that he did without Rodgers'
connection to the press.  Wuerl was merely using Rodgers for selfish gain.
However, the gig is now up ... expired ... deflated ... unveiled ...
... just like the man behind the curtain in  the Wizard of Oz.
Okay then.  You now know why I reached out to help those who were the play toys
of predatory priests, even though all of my labor and expense in the effort was for
naught, due to the manipulative corruption of Donald Wuerl.  You now know why
I went to lengths to do this Wuerlgate site, despite the threats and very unfriendly
visitation.  It was one of those moral obligation things.  If I were to remain silent,
I would have sinned.  You must let people know when a wolf is in their midst, no
matter how flamingly effeminate and tiny the wolf is, being that the ferociousness
is not in any physical stature.  Rather, it's in the person's abuse of power and his
manipulation of others to do his violence toward yet others.

My reason was very simple and it permeated throughout the marrow of my soul.
Therefore, it wasn't a matter me being a brooding malcontent jealous of Donald
Wuerl.  It wasn't a matter of me trying to one-up-it on the tinsel town narcissistic
who was found living in a Narie Antoinette setting.  Nor was it a matter of trying
to promote another bishop over Wuerl:

It was a matter of me wanting to never go through another suicide, ever again.

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 Offense only, and
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.

I've met great men in life, ranging from a national book award winner here, a
Walt Whitman award winner there, a Super Bowl champion yet elsewhere, and
a share of full-blown war heroes.  Each one had a personality.  Wuerl had none.
Ann  Rodgers, to legacy of disgrace, set out to make Wuerl look like a great man.
But, Wuerl was nothing more than a Great Lie, especially in what Wuerl did to
Anthony Cipolla, his diversionary tactic.  For those of you easily deceived by
sound bytes and Christopher Dickey articles, the Jpeg evidence is here at the
Wuerlgate which convincingly defends an Anthony Cipolla whom I assumed
was guilty as publicly accused, being that I did no fact checking until the Year

For the record, the catalyst in finding the proof that Cipolla actually was inno-
cent of the allegations stated by the liar Tim Bendig was Chicago's own Mike
Volpe.  Mike is underrated, to say the least.  He's literally one of my heroes.
Impressive in the proper way for me to describe.  That's for sure.  How did
Mike know?  ANS:  Experience with whistle blower retaliation cases.

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.

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 as he and they can.  This is ongoing deceit.

No matter what, keep in mind that my thesis statement in the court of pub-
lic opinion is that, during his Pittsburgh days, Donald Wuerl was a vicious
conniver.  He was a liar, a pretender, a retaliator, and a conceited narcissist
who showed disdain for 99% of the population,

Wuerl most certainly did use diversionary tactics and sleight of hand decep-
tions.   Plus, his nexus to the Sodomite Wuerl was ascertained with empirical
evidence.  Yet, as far as goes the allegations of his private where he allegedly
violated a principle vow of the priesthood as a part of his lifestyle, that is bas-
ed on eye witness accounts, as well as compelling circumstantial evidence.
Due to the lack of smoking gun evidence, I refrained from line-itemizing
what certain individuals from Europe to America alleged to me about
Wuerl's private life.  What if all those people between 1999 and 2012
were wrong in what they told me about Wuerl's alleged private life.

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.

December 24, 2016

Wuerl kept the notorious Father Hoehl in ministry, even after the "life-changing epiphany" dinner mentioned by Ann Rodgers.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where Cardinal Donald Wuerl's web of corruption was spun,
with the help the Ann Rodgers who was repeatedly caught lying in print, via fact checking.
Nor did he report Wolk, Zula, and Pucci to the police.  Attorney F. Peter
Dixon did.  He was a friend of the victimized family.

For those unaware, John Hoehl was put on administrative leave by then-
Bishop Anthony Bevilacqua.  Hoehl WAS removed from the priesthood
ministry.  Wuerl reinstated him.

Then there was Wellinger, not to mention Wuerl reinstating Huff.  All in
all, know that Ann Rodgers IS a liar.  She was a non-Catholic Pittsburgh
Post Gazette writer who was appointed Pittsburgh Roman Catholic Dio-
cesan director of communications.  She still is a Protestant.  Her appoint-
ment is a case study in cronyism and Vatican II corruption.  Read onward,
because you need to know what liars comprise the Wuerl propaganda
machine.  Incidentally, he did NOT write the Teachings of Christ.  He
was merely one of three editors of the catechism book which had a
multiplicity of authors.  Wuerl, himself, begane the lie which claimed
that he wrote that catechism book single-handedly, doing so in 1979,

Concerning the two lads corrupted by Wolk, Zula, and Pucci, know that
each priest performed his antics at different times, on different occasions.
It wasn't one of those "all-three-at-once" scenarios, to state it politely.

The Pittsburgh Post Gazette story which was easy to prove false was that
Wuerl had a life-changing enlightenment when he went to the home of the
two lads sodomized by Wolk, Zula, and Pucci, and then instantly became
the champion of zero tolerance.  That scenario did NOT happen.  Ann
Rodgers (formerly of the Pgh Post Gazette) was and is a liar, and she
never sued me for calling her a liar.

Proof that the Ann Rodgers story is a fairy tale exists in the fact that District
Attorney John C. Pettit issued a press release which stated that Donald Wuerl,
as well as staff members of his then-diocese of Pittsburgh, were uncooperative
with law enforcement officials throughout the investigation that resulted in the
indictments of Wolk, Zula, and Pucci.

In addition, if Wuerl were the heroic bishop of zero tolerance that Ann Rodgers
said he was, then Wuerl would have immediately suspended the notorious John
Hoehl whom Wuerl personally put back into ministry, shortly before that dinner
transpired.  For the record, it was Donald Wuerl's predecessor, the destined-to-be-
disgraced Anthony Bevilacqua, who ordered Hoehl on administrative leave.

Now, if the 5'4" Donald Wuerl whom Ann Rodgers falsely described in print as
an ascetic 5'11" were the model of zero tolerance, then Donald Wuerl would also
not have reinstated into ministry the Fr Edward Huff who would eventually be-
come criminally indicted and convicted.  Wuerl was covering-up Huff while he
was being lauded as a bishop of zero tolerance in the Anthony Cipolla Case.

And of course, after the fact-checking, and after Bendig multiply lied to me,
and after the spiritually grotesque Diane Thompson repeatedly lied about me
and changed her story about Anthony Cipolla, it was confirmed that Anthony
Cipolla was 95 to 98% innocent as accused.  After all, Cipolla never was in-
dicted, and a DA can file an indictment without Diane Thompson's permis-
sion to do so.  Of course, this refers to my future defendant, Diane Thomp-
son, who harassed me and repeatedly committed libel against me.  She is
quite arrogant, as well as erratic in her writings which were fact-checked
and found to be bullet-riddled with easily provable falsehoods, as is ex-
plained in a few Wuerlgate articles.

Wolk, Zula, & Pucci

The first of the three to be indicted was Wolk, and after Wolk was indicted,
Wuerl gave an excuse for his cover-up of him.  Only afterward did Wuerl
do the artificial grandstanding, with sleight of hand semantics involved.
Wuerl was no champion of Zero Tolerance.  Wuerl was caught and then
had to quickly construct a facade.

The other proof is that Wuerl reinstated the suspended Father John Hoehl.
After that dinner, Wuerl kept Hoehl in ministry, thereby very much tolerat-
ing a priest who caused a lot of lingering psychological damage to a num-
ber of individuals.  Wuerl stubbornly kept Hoehl in ministry until Father
Robert Wolk was indicted.  Then Wuerl treated Hoehl as a hot potato and
showed him the exit door.

Now, do you see what a liar Ann Rodgers and the other Wuerl People are?
Concerning Rodgers, she meddled in influencing the Catholic mind.  Yet,
she refuses to be a Catholic.

An added scandal  is in the fact that David Zubik, a secretary of John Hoehl,
never reported Hoehl for his well-noted sex crimes.  However, my opinion is
that David Zubik had no idea of what Hoehl was doing in his private life.  I
personally knew Fr. Dave.  Dave didn't buddy around with the athletes whom
Hoehl targeted.  Dave wasn't in the inner circle.  In my opinion David Zubik
isn't an accomplice.  The problem is that he wasn't alert to his surroundings.
He needed to reach-out more.  If he did, he could have spared someone of
the grief that comes with being a high school headmaster's prey.

As was previously stated and ignored by the Vatican . . .

Added proof that Wuerl was NO hero of zero tolerance exists in the fact that
Wuerl  also reinstated the Edward Huff who ended up being indicted and con-
victed.  Thus, as you can see, the story of Wuerl being a crystal clear saint of
zero tolerance is a complete falsehood.  Wuerl IS as corrupt as they come, and
the stories were a part of that criminal corruption.

Concerning Hoehl and the time of the Wolk indictment, if Wuerl were found
to have a criminal in ministry, law enforcement would have scoured the Pitts-
burgh diocese and Wuerl in investigative detail.  Wuerl's private life, even
when he was the long-term secretary under John Cardinal Wright, would
have been revealed to law enforcement authorities.  Wuerl stubbornly kept
John Hoehl in  diocesan ministry for as long as he could do so, without hav-
ing the Diocese of Pittsburgh become a magnetized target of a detialed law
enforcement investigation.

Added proof that Wuerl had NO change of heart after the dinner evening
with the family victimized by Wolk, Zula, and Pucci was that he did NOT
report those three priests.  An attorney who was a friend of the victimized
family did the reporting thereof.  So, as you can see, Ann Rodgers, former-
ly of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, is a liar.  Rocco Palmo and Christopher
Dickey were fools to have used her as a source in their articles about Don-
ald Wuerl which were basically two plagiarisms of Rodgers; falsehoods.
They lost credibility with anyone familiar with the Wuerlgate Jpegs, news
archives, and witness accounts.  They lost credible with anyone who was
there in Pittsburgh during the 1990s.

IN AS MUCH,  contrary to what Christopher Dickey wrote, the truth is that
the only reason why Wuerl and his former Diocese of Pittsburgh had one of
the first no-tolerance sex abuse policies in America was because:

Wuerl was one of the very first bishops in the United States who got 
caught concealing criminal priests from law enforcement authorities.

So, he had to strike the disciplinarian pose while the law enforcement
spotlight was on him.  Wuerl was caught being uncooperative with
DA John C. Pettit.  So, Wuerl fabricated a new image of himself.
It included him announcing a zero tolerance sex abuse policy.


Wuerl's sex abuse policy did NOT apply to 1} the case of  Edward Huff
who would eventually be criminally indicted, 2} the credible seminarian
Wuerl prevented from being ordained, 3} the  case of Fr. James Torquato,
4} the case of Fr. John Wellinger,  Plus, the policy was NOT implement-
ed until after Wuerl put the notorious John S. Hoehl back into ministry.
Even more hypocritical was the fact that Wuerl put back into ministry
the previously mentioned Edward Huff who was reported to Wuerl
three different times, by the differing sets of concerned Catholics.
The Zero-Tolerance label placed on Wuerl was a fraudulent claim.

For those unfamiliar, Ann Rodgers was a writer for the Pittsburgh Post Gazette.
Even though she was never any type of Catholic, she was assigned to be head
of the Communications Dept of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh.
On multiple fact-checking occasions, Ann Rodgers was caught lying in print.

A Review of Wuerl's Triple Cover-up

To start, Wuerl had a Father Arnott go to the violated family, to see if they
would be willing to meet with Wuerl.  But, this only occurred when Wuerl
learned that the family was going to report the priests to law enforcement
authorities.  The Donald Wuerl who was sued many times by Pittsburgh
area residents sought to get his foot into the door.  Wuerl basically invited

Do NOT ever be deceived into thinking that Wuerl was a revered presence
in Pittsburgh.  The number of lawsuits filed against him proves  otherwise.
Wuerl had contrived press and media coverage, as well as the pit bull Ron
Lengwin who actually is very tall and who allegedly sought to intimidate
people in the mode of a big bully.  Me seeing how tall Lengwin is was as
shocking to me as having seen how tiny Wuerl is.  All that Lengwin ever
did to me was smile at me with gritted teeth and a snarl.  He kept moving
and I never saw him again.  This was at the diocesan building.

If Wuerl's meeting with the family were similar to other people's encounters
with Wuerl, then I can assure you that he left the family feeling violated and
outraged.  I can assure you that he triggered a sense of insult so intense that
they went forth and gave the greenlight to Attorney F. Peter Dixon who end-
ed up reporting the three priests to law enforcement officials.

As soon as the indictment was filed, Wuerl got rid of Hoehl like a sand bag in
a hot air balloon losing altitude.  But, not until then.  This is extremely interest-
ing, in that it indicates that Wuerl seemingly assumed that the violated family
would not report the three molester priests to the police.  If Wuerl anticipated
the reporting thereof, he would have gotten rid of John Hoehl immediately.
Wuerl let Hoehl remain in ministry, as if Wuerl arrogantly assumed that he
controlled the violated family on a set of puppet strings.

Wuerl keeping Fr. John Hoehl in ministry after the meeting with
the family of two molested altar boys proves that  Wuerl had no
change of heart or policy that resulted from the meeting/dinner.
The claim that the meeting changed Wuerl is lying propaganda.

During the journalists' 2013 papal conjecture phrase, shortly before Francis I
ascended to the Chair of Saint Peter, the Daily Beast's Paris bureau chief con-
jectured that Cardinal Wuerl was America's candidate for pope, in light of the
newspaper articles that glorified Wuerl, especially in the heavily misrepresent-
ed Anthony Cipolla case that starred a seminary flunk-out who was described
as a perpetual and pathological liar by multiple persons who knew him.  In fact,
the Cipolla case starred an individual who was even declared NOT credible by
Donald Wuerl, at one time.  His name is Tim Bendig and he lied to me four
times in a row in the Year 2014, during a telephone conversation that he
initiated with me during work hours.  I conducted that conversation in a
construction trailer office, next to a drawing board.

The Paris bureau chief then stated that Wuerl apparently became too tired to
fight the good fight that the media described Wuerl as having fought.  Dickey
then referred to one of Ann Rodgers' Pgh Post Gazette articles, stating:

     But a few weeks after that decision Wuerl met with the devout, deeply
     disillusioned, and increasingly litigious family of one victim.  They in-
     vited Wuerl to dinner and, according to a lengthy and laudatory report
     in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in 2003, when Wuerl left that table his
     views of the issue had changed.  Before, his actions had been closely
     aligned church policies, which were basically a CYA masquerading
     as piety.

     Now Wuerl told his staff it had to get its priorities straight: the first
    concern was the injured party, the second was for the person’s family,
    the third—and only the third—was the potential harm to the church
    and its reputation.   He’s on the record declaring zero tolerance for
    priests accused of sexual abuse 14 years before that became official
The decision to which Dickey referred was Wuerl's decision to put back
into ministry the notorious John S. Hoehl, former headmaster of Quigley
H.S., in Baden Pennsylvania.  I attended that school for four years.  And
yes, I heard the rumors while in school.

Furthermore, Wuerl did NOT observe the policy he announced in the case
of Edward Huff.  Plus, his policy did NOT apply to Torquato's prey or to
the credible deacon whistle blower Wuerl trapped and refused to ordain
into the priesthood.  Yet, Wuerl ordained the homosexual predator, James
Torquato, and covered up Torquato's wrongs, thereby approving of them
in deed.

The source of this letter is self-evident.

December 23, 2016

Cardinal Wuerl: FOUR cover-ups in Year 1. Huff followed. Torquato too. Wellinger hovered. Ann Rodgers lied. NO model of zero tolerance here.

The quickest summary is that the FOUR priests were ======>


1} John Hoehl whom Donald Wuerl personally reinstated into ministry
and kept in ministry, even after the so-called "enlightening" dinner that
Wuerl had with the family of two lads molested by the three priests men-
tioned below, 

Wuerl kept Hoehl in ministry until the priest mentioned directly below
was indicted and arraigned.  Then, Wuerl dropped Hoehl like a very hot
potato.  If Wuerl were to have kept Hoehl in ministry --- even "doghouse 
ministry" and/or probationary ministry --- Wuerl would have been invit-
ing a grand jury inquest.

2} Robert Wolk (ordained the same year as was Wuerl, thereby indicat-
ing that he was Wuerl's classmate.)  Ann Rodgers falsely claimed that 
Wolk was removed "just as Wuerl became bishop."  The truth is that 
Anthony Bevilacqua placed Wolk on administrative leave, long before 
Wuerl replaced Bevilacqua.  Donald Wuerl was positioning  to reinstate
Wolk, as he did Hoehl.

3} Richard "Sade" Zula who did practice Sadism on at least one male 
youth,   This was the only known priest Wuerl was NOT going to re-
instate into any type of ministry.  Now, Wuerl has been proven to be 
unjust and vicious, but he drew a line in the proverbial sand when it
came to Sadism.  Wuerl hid the knowledge of Zula's crimes from law
enforcement, despite the Child Protective Services Act.  Hes imply let
Zula go about his life with full intention to never reinstate him, ever,

Now, when DA John C. Pettit was trying to process Zula's indictment, 
no one at the Diocese of Pittsburgh let him know what Zula's address 
was at the time.  Pettit didn't even know where Zula was, and the dio-
cese claimed that its personnel didn't know, either.  The Diocese of 
Pittsburgh personnel were a collective aggravation to Pettit through-
out the criminal investigation, making fact-finding a .

4} Fr. Francis Pucci who was not laicized or removed from ministry.  
Rather, he was allowed to conduct the Mass and perhaps Divine Office 
with a religious order of sisters.  Pucci was indicted, but his indictment 
was dismissed on the statute of limitations defense.  Therefore,  Pucci 
remained on the diocesan payroll.  In fact, even the criminal convict, 
Richard Dorsch, was on the payroll, after his conviction.  In Catholic
Canon Law, even criminal priests, after prison time, must be financial-
ly supported by their bishops.  A bishop does NOT have to reassign
a criminal priest who completed a jail sentence.  But, he does have
to sustain such a priest.

The two lawsuits involved 1} former Catholic school headmaster John 
Hoehl as co-defendant; 2} the two brothers abused (at different times)
by Wolk, Zula, and Pucci as members of the plaintiff family.  Only one
of the two brothers was an altar boy, incidentally.  Let us proceed.

Ann Rodgers"-Melnick" was a Pittsburgh Post Gazette writer originally from
California.  Before going to Pittsburgh she worked in the Southwestern sect-
or of  Florida were major leaguers do their baseball Spring Training.  Even 
though She was never a Roman Catholic (or any other rite of Catholicism.)
Yet, she was given the post of Pittsburgh Roman Catholic Diocese director 
for Communications, as if no Catholic on Earth is good enough for the job.

During the infamous 2002 media rampage on clergy sex abuse, she wrote that 
as far back as Wuerl's very first year as bishop of Pittsburgh, he announced a 
Zero Tolerance Policy, where no priest accused of sexually abusing a minor
could ever go back into ministry.  That was a complete falsehood, supported 
by the evidence of him returning to ministry Frs. John Hoehl and Edward

Concerning her proven lies, the first one which was detected was her claim
that the tiny Donald Wuerl was an ascetic 5'11".  The truth is that Wuerl is as 
short in height as was the late Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua --- between 5'4 
to 5'6".  Concerning this, I received a polite phone call from Washington stat-
ing that Wuerl stands 5'9" to 5'10".  Yes --- with elevator shoes, he does.  

Being that I was in Pittsburgh during Wuerl's tenure, and being that he walked 
up to me, I do know that he is tiny.  He did NOT wear elevator shoes here, in
Pittsburgh.  Others who met him also told me that he stood 5'4" to 5'5".  One
person described Wuerl as "scrawny."   A very polite 5'4" woman said to me
that Wuerl and her stood "head to head," meaning at the same height.

I know of Wuerl's height and Bevilacqua's height from a point-blank range
personal experience (in a public forum.).  In fact, I was surprised to find out
how tiny Wuerl was as he approached me, once upon a time.  This is because
he was made out to be this superior godlike man of masculine stature.  The
Donald Wuerl who approached me was exactly like a certain flaming homo-
sexual theater major who would occasionally buzz around our click and take
with him one of the guys, the son of a certain lieutenant governor's son; not

The bottom line is that you cannot instantly trust as true anything written by 
Ann Rodgers.  But, for the most part, Rodgers used sleight of hand semantics,
(as opposed to outright lying) in her deceiving of the common man & woman
via the Pittsburgh Post Gazette.

We adjourn to the original article:

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.  Incidentally, Pgh is the abbreviation of Pittsburgh

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:

Donald Wuerl: A Coast to Coast Disgrace

News of Wuerl's triple cover-up made its way from coast to coast, via:

- the New York Times,          - the Saint Petersburg Times,
- the Philadelphia Inquirer,     - the Philadelphia Daily News,
- the Cleveland Plain Dealer,   - the Pittsburgh Post Gazette,
- Maine's Lewiston Daily Sun,    - the San Jose Mercury News,     
- Pennsylvania's Reading Eagle,   -  the San Antonio Express-News,
- California's Lodi News-Sentinel,   - the now defunct Pittsburgh Press,

- New Hampshire's Nashua Telegraph,  - South Carolina's Rock Hill Herald.
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."
