Wuerl ignored foreign labor exploitation for 27 years, while living in Marie-Antoinette luxury and accommodating the legacy of Sodom

Keep in mind that he who does not defend the truth is an accomplice in
attacking it.  Likewise, he who does not speak out against a crime against
humanity is an accomplice to the widespread crime that the person ignores.

The Contradiction Found in the Media Praise of Donald Wuerl 

The media praise of Wuerl contradicted itself in the following way: 

"Despite the triple cover-up that he was caught performing in Pittsburgh, 
and despite the fact that Wuerl reinstated John  Hoehl and Edward Huff,
as well as having made the invasive homosexual and retaliator Fr. James
Torquato a parish pastor, Donald Cardinal Wuerl was heralded as a pro-
tector of children.   Yet, he elected to remain silent toward a corporate prac-
tice that victimizes children far more frequently than does the predatorship
of priests who should never have been ordained in the first place."

That practice is child sweatshop labor profiteering.  Needless to say, Cardinal 
Wuerl has been equally indifferent toward the sweatshop labor imposed upon
foreign adults.  He remained silent until the present pope spoke out against it,
and it took the Bangladesh sweatshop fire to devour over 100 slave laborers,
to put the present ruling class at the Vatican on the spot, in need to speak out 
against a practice that the Apostles and their successors identify as one of the
"four sins which cry to Heaven for Vengeance."

Now, the Western world has made an occasional comment about child sweat-
shop laborer without doing anything to end that crime against humanity,  How-
ever, adults are the ones upon whom children depend for  their survival.  And
therefore, adult sweatshop labor profiteering is also a crime against humanity.

All in all, the years of deliberate indifference that Donald Wuerl had toward this
one crime against humanity envelopes him, in his Marie Antoinette lifestyle, in an
aura of razor wire and Robber Barron dollar bills.  

Wuerl's DC residence turned out to be a $43 million structure situated along
the very luxurious Embassy Row.  A testimony to the deceit of Wuerl's praisers.
Above is Wuerl's posh & plush palatial residence for 18 years.  This is located
relatively near the steel tycoon mansions of Pittsburgh.
The recent Time Magazine article about Cardinal Wuerl was an outrage. 
The article made it sound as if Wuerl were always speaking on behalf of 
the worker, "both poor & immigrant," throughout the years.  Well, a num-
ber of us, including me personally, tried to get Wuerl to speak out against
Sweatshop profiteering.  In fact, I petitioned for the official "approval" of
founding and establishing an official "apostolate" (Catholic action guild),
but Wuerl never even responded to the request.  Other persons and/or en-
tities tried to get Wuerl active in countering sweatshop labor profiteering.
But, Wuerl remained kept his decades-long silence in the subject.  Such 
negligence ... such omission ... such indifference ...  is an ongoing mortal
sin, because the more that is given to you, the more is expected from you.

Wuerl is like the Marathon Race fraud who sneaks into the running 
lanes at the 24th mile post, all the while pretending to have started at
the starting line.

Then comes a spotlight moment for Wuerl, and he suddenly makes it sound 
as if he was the heir of the Caesar Chevaz movement, all along.  Wuerl was 
no such thing.  He was indifferent for decades, and only gave attention to the
affluent and government contract income.  Wuerl refrained from speaking out
against the sins which cries to Heaven for Vengeance, known as Defraudment
of Laborers of their Wages.  If he were the champion of the underdog worker, 
I would have been granted my apostolate years ago.  Wuerl committed a long-
term sin of omission, being heartless to the pain of exploited workers.

Wuerl's only concern for immigrants was in to how much government con-
tract money he could get in social service contracts, in their name.  That was
it.  Only money for his former diocese was his motive.

I was the champion for labor.  The others were champions for labor.  We
were all ignored by Wuerl.  We could have accomplished great things, if it
weren't for the same Donald Wuerl blocking our road and then looking the
other way, all the while doing absolutely nothing for the plight of exploited
workers.  Rather, he performed the Sacrament of Confirmation on the one
man who caused NAFTA to become a nightmarish reality for many a worker.  

The fact that Wuerl confirmed NAFTA Newt without requiring Gingrich to pub-
licly denounce his public sin of labor exploitation legislation shows that Wuerl
did NOT advocate for the poor worker.

The Time Magazine article about Wuerl is a lie, mostly in the form of a sleight 
of hand semantic deceptions.  Wuerl only goes to the popular side and acts as if
he always were part of it.  When the pro-Bush & Gingrich worlds had the upper-
hand, Wuerl was pro-Bush and pro-Gingrich.  Then suddenly, the labor people 
take the upper-hand and Wuerl switches sides, patting its leaders on the back, 
acting like he's one of them.   Always remember, "Satan masquerades as an
angel of light."  So does Wuerl.

Razor Wire Wuerl

Wuerl has been silent for decades toward the closest current thing to the
Nazi concentration camp network.  In as much, Wuerl's silence toward
sweatshop labor profiteering is Wuerl's tacit approval of that internation-
al crime against humanity.  Furthermore, it indicates  that, if he were a 
bishop in the 1940s, he would have remained completely silent toward the
Nazis ill treatment of the Jews, Gypsies, mentally afflicted, and dissents
such as the Catholic priests who met death in a Nazi concentration camp.

Yet, Wuerl had more than enough time to provide two parish venues for the
Sodomite Masses which were euphemistically called "Dignity Masses."  Per-
haps foreign sweatshop workers are not white enough for Wuerl to have any
concern for them.  Perhaps they are not glamorous enough.  Perhaps it's that
they don't have the political or financial power for Wuerl use.

One of the Four Sins that Cry to Heaven for Vengeance

Formerly known as the Defraudment of Laborers of their Wages, slave labor 

profiteering has long since been identified in Catholic Church teaching as one 
of the four sins that cry to Heaven for vengeance.  Bishops are morally obligat-
ed to see to it that adherents to the Catholic faith live free of sins of accessory, 
including all which involves sweatshop labor profiteering and things similar.  

This additionally includes the obligation of bishops to approve initiatives and 
apostolates designed to end the Catholic faithful's cooperation with all crimes 
against humanity.   Incidentally, apostolates used to be known as Catholic ac-
tion guilds.

The synonym for sin of accessory is sin of cooperation.  In the case of sweat-

shop profiteering, it involves cooperation with corporate sin.  Corporate sin is
not limited to the activities of corporations.  Rather, a corporate sin is one that 
is given the fuel to perpetuate itself via the cooperation of an entire society.  
The word, corporate, is derived from the word, body.  Thus, a corporate sin 
is an evil that is supported by the body politic of the region or nation where 
it is committed.  

That is to say, a corporate sin occurs when the vast majority of society makes 
itself an accessory to that sin.  Nazi Germany is the quintessential example of 
corporate sin and the sin of cooperation.  In addition, Corporate sin is equally
known as social scandal.  It involves what is known as the Sin of Cooperation.

Vatican II states that the Church by its nature is missionary.  This means that 

the Church has the innate instinct to rally to causes, establish initiatives, and as 
Saint Paul phrased it, to "fight the good fight."  In sequence, Pope Paul VI once 
stated that the renewal of the temporal order is the vocation of the laity.  Thus,
bishops are morally obligated to provide the laity with the assistance necessary 
to fulfill its vocation.   Wuerl did no such thing at any time, despite the fact that 
he has been a reigning bishop for 26 years.  A reigning bishop is known as a lo-
cal ordinary.

In 1986, when the Reagan administration and the U.S. Congress opened trade
with China, the average Chinese wage was 24 cents an hour.   By 2010, it was
75 cents an hour, for a Cantonese worker.  Today, the wage continues to depend
on the region, and ranges from $1.23 in Guangxi to $2.58 in Beijing, according
to the 2013 law that mandated the Chinese minimum wage to equal to 40% of
the average urban wage.  Yet, there are reports, such as one from Business Insid-
er, which mark the average Chinese salary at 80 cents an hour.  Thus, we again
have inconsistent reporting.

What is known is that there have been worker suicides, threats of collective
suicides, rioting, protests, and physically demanding living conditions.  In
addition, Vietnam, with its low wage rate, has become the new China.

In sequence, China has become the world's biggest toxic waste dump.  The
NY Times and Washington Post reported in 2014 that China has become an
exporter of pollution, where its toxic air has made its way to the West Coast
of the United States.  The sweatshop economy and lack of an environmental
conscience in China caused this.  Human life means nothing to those in pow-
er, there.

In as much, if Wuerl were the holy man Ann Rodgers, Bishop David Zubik,
and the pig-resembling Bill "$475,000-a-year" Donohue make Wuerl out to
be, then the same Donald Wuerl would have been speaking out against the
American corporate world's exploitation of foreign sweatshop labor, like a
prophet decades ago.  Instead, the Elevator Shoes Kid, Donald Wuerl kept
his mouth shut for decades and lived his Marie Antoinette lifestyle.  Wuerl
could have come-off as a great prophetic hero, but remained silent where a
voice was needed.  There is NO holiness is a person-in-power who remains
completely silent in an era of intense human suffering caused by other hu-
mans in power.  The sufferings in China was all man-made and it couldn't
have come to be without the business sector of the United States.



The minimum wages of other low-waged nations, as of 2014, go as follows:

Sierra Leone: 3 cents an hour.   Mali where the French intervened: 27 cents.
Mexico: 61 cents.  Vietnam: $90 to $128 per month depending upon region.
The Philippines: 61 cents.   Pakistan: 51 cents.   Afghanistan: 57 cents.
Armenia: 65 cents.  Nepal: 45 cents.  Nicaragua:  52 cents.  Bangladesh:
Monthly wage went from $38 to $66 recently.  The Ukraine: 91 cents

Other minimum wages go as follows, per hour:

Australia: $16.88.  Luxembourg: $14.24  France: $12.22   Ireland: $11.09
The UK: $10.02.  New Zealand: $11.18  The Netherlands:  $10.99
Spain: $5.57   Portugal: $4.19  Taiwan:  $3.88.   Poland: $2.97 

End of preliminary statistical notes.
Americans wear clothing made by overseas sweatshop employees.  Americans
buy appliances made in sweatshop nations.  In almost every American home,
you will find the phrase, Made in China, more often than Made in USA, no 
matter what be the category of not-very-durable durable good found in the-
typical  American home.  America is  no longer the land of the free.  It's now
the Home of the Enslaver.

Sweatshop people don't have lives.  Nor were they given any appreciable identity.
As a result, sweatshop employees would be found with slit wrists, time and time
again.  Eventually came the implementation of the suicide net, in order to prevent
sweatshop employers from hurling themselves off of roofs.

Americans hold  sweatshop workers in a living death, be these the workers in Bang-
ladesh, China, Vietnam, Guatemala, El Salvador, etc.  Now, some Americans keep 
these workers lodged in this state of slavery out of cowardice, while others do so
out of selfish negligence.  Yet, others do so out of greed.

Why would anyone want to rule over a humanity that had its humanity stripped
away from itself?  Who wants to rule over a society of humans-made-robot or 
humans-made-animal ... or even humanity-turned-zombie?   The state of the
people ruled is a reflection on  the rulers.  The makers of ghettos are ghettos
within themselves, no matter how plush be their domiciles and how high be
their bank accounts.  Concerning the greed part ...

The Trickle-away Effect, aka Trickle-away Economics

The United States does NOT make money from importing merchandise made by
low-waged foreign sweatshop workers.  It has been constantly losing through this
type of importation.  While Communist Chinese merchandise comes to America,
American dollars goes to Maoist China.  So too is this the case with other foreign
nations  whose workforce can't afford to buy American products and/or services,
in any type of appreciable, two-way, fair trade, economic traffic.  No foreign na-
tion pays the United States to take its merchandise.  In fact, Chinese Communist
dictators do not even give Americans a commission for selling their merchandise.  

America is not making out like a bandit in a business practice which constitutes
a crime against humanity.  There is only a small percentage of Americans who
make out like bandits, often sending their spoils to overseas tax havens.  Mean-
while, the rest of America finds itself on the losing end of the steadily diminish-
ing currency flow, in increments.  This chronic loss has been in the trillions of
dollars.  This is the trickle-away effect.

A flow of American dollars goes into Communist Dictatorial China, as well to
each of the NAFTA nations, never to return to the States, without America find-
ing itself in an increasing state of treasury bond debt to foreign entities.  The 
money lost in Republican  Party Economics is called the U.S. Trade Balance
DEFICIT.   The total deficit for the past 10 years has been $5.929 trillion
(2003 to 2012).  The accumulative deficit for the past 20 years (for goods & 
services) has been $7.988 trillion (1993 to 2012).  For goods  only, the 20 yr 
U.S. International Trade Balance Deficit has been $9.236 trillion.

That's MINUS $9,839,000,000,000.
          MINUS $7,988,000,000,000.
          MINUS $5,929,000,000,000.

All gone.  Bye bye.  No more.  Au revoir.  Not even a post card.  In addition, sweatshop 
workers threatened suicide, on account of the harsh conditions in the compounds that 
manufacture the products which go to the United States.  This means that Americans  
have become unconscionable slave drivers by proxy, all the while destroying their own 
1 yi jiao
Now, foreign trade is fine, if and only if the foreign workers can afford American pro-
ducts.  That is to say, buying foreign is fine, if foreign occasionally buys American, in
return.  Thus, fair trade is a necessity, in order for foreign trade not to result in disast-
er for one of the two trading nations.  Fair trade requires a reasonably balanced two-
way street of import and export traffic.  

Concerning America, Chinese workers would not have been able to have afforded 
American products anyway, beyond wheat products, in Equitable Foreign Trade, ev-
en if America had not ceased being a manufacturer of household consumer products 
in significant quantities.

Imagine the trade balance deficit money as dollars flowing through a tube into a pro-
tectionist dictatorship or two ... or three.  This costs American jobs.  In fact, this en-
tirely prevents the creation of many American mid-size business start-ups.






The Economic Downside Effect of
Foreign Slave Labor Profiteering

Foreign slave labor profiteering achieves the following results:

- Increases an offending nation's international trade deficit.
- Reduces the same nation's gross domestic product.
- Deceases the offending nation's per capita income.

At this point, view the United States trade balance deficit through
the past ten years, in its trade of goods (not services) with China,

                  U.S. IMPORTS                        U.S. EXPORTS
              from sweatshop China                to protectionist China
        (This is money paid to China)   (This is money paid to the U.S.A.)

2013            $440 billion                              $122 billion
2012            $425 billion                              $111 billion
2011            $399 billion                              $104 billion
2010            $365 billion                                $92 billion
2009            $296 billion                                $69 billion
2008            $337 billion                                $69 billion
2007            $321 billion                                $62 billion
2006            $287 billion                                $53 billion
2005            $243 billion                                $41 billion
2004            $196 billion                                $34 billion

10yr total: $3.309 Trillion                             $0.757 Trillion       
 paid to Slave Labor China               paid to an acquiescent U.S.A.

The NET equals: MINUS $2,552,000,000,000 - That's only trade with China.
This is goods only.

The Total Deficit, as is charted below, is MINUS $5,929,000,000,000. 
This comprises trade with all nations.  This comprises goods and services.

The hypocrisy is that trillions of American dollars stayed in the permanent posses-
sion of the Chinese Communist Dictatorship, in the name of Democracy and
Capitalism, as well as Republican Party Values.

See:  http://www.census.gov/foreign-trade/balance/c5700.html#2012

Now, view the total 10 yr U.S. trade balance acct, concerning trade with all nations,
from 2003 to 2012:

          Concerning GOODS only        GOODS and SERVICES

2012       minus $735 billion                     minus $540 billion
2011       minus $737 billion                     minus $588 billion
2010       minus $645 billion                     minus $500 billion
2009       minus $505 billion                     minus $381 billion           
2008       minus $830 billion                     minus $698 billion
2007       minus $818 billion                     minus $696 billion
2006       minus $835 billion                     minus $753 billion
2005       minus $780 billion                     minus $708 billion
2004       minus $663 billion                     minus $605 billion
2003       minus $540 billion                     minus $490 billion

Total:   minus $7.088 261 trillion         minus $5.929 trillion 

Refer to the following link: 

In addition, the total/aggregate U.S. Trade Balance Deficit for only the month
of November 2012 rose $6.6 billion, to $48.7 billion (for that one month only.)
This means that the Trade Gap Rate rose by 15.9%.  As I have previously stat-
ed, if this Trade Balance Deficit behavior continues, America will be a political
entity in the history books, compared to the Argentina which, at one time, was
regarded a world power.



Thus ends the mystery as to why millions of Americans had the hardest time
finding employment; especially those of a livable wage.

At this point, repeat after me:  "That's a lot of sweatshops."

A Crime Committed upon the Parent
is a Crime Committed upon the Child
and Visa Versa

An injustice thrust upon adults is one that is equally forced upon the children of those 

adults.  Poverty in the home of the parent is poverty in the home of the child.  Sweat-
shop labor imposed upon adults is an evil that also assails children.

 explosions':  Inside the Chinese factories making iPads for Apple


And it came to pass, as the first decade of the 21st Century progressed, that right
wing conservative business entities saw to it that religious objects and Christmas 
ornaments would be made in sweatshops.  The people tagged as the hard work-
ing moral majority negated the purpose for the coming of Christ, doing so in the 
name of sacred rites.  All the while,  they made money on interest-bearing instru-
ments and extremely cheap labor, doing absolutely nothing in the process.

And it also came to pass that no Christmas gift was being made at the North Pole 
by elves.  Rather, they were being made in Chinese and Bangladesh sweatshops by 
severely underpaid workers, some of whom applied razor blades to their wrists, in 
order to kill the pain that the Reaganite Moral Majority were collectively inflicting 
upon them.  

And it furthermore came to pass, as the 21st Century progressed, that millions held 
Christianity in contempt, being that millions were deceived into thinking that Ameri-
can Corporate Predatory Greed was the religion of the Nazarene rabbi who was put 
to a Roman death shortly after he drove Money Changers from the Jerusalem Temple.
When the Nazarene entered Jerusalem, the Jews placed palm branches before him.
Within a week, the Romans ended up driving nails into him.  Today, the right wing
masters of hypocrisy and greed crucify the Nazarene anew.

Humanity then became enlightened as to what the Protestant Work Ethic really is.  
It's the incessant practice of using African slaves, Irish Catholic immigrants, East-
ern European immigrants, Chinese sweatshop workers, and similar victims to do 
the Protestants' work for them.  

In the words of the woman who was once the premier expert in student loan con-
solidation, "Now, that labor's cheap, human life has become cheap." (in the eyes
of right wing moral majority conservatives.)  In the Nineteenth Century, the States
that comprised the Confederate South used local chattel slavery to achieve their
hallowed Protestant work ethic.  In the 21st Century, the same States and other 
ones used Slavery by Proxy, as in foreign sweatshop labor profiteering.  It's the
same Jefferson Davis hypocrisy, done in the name of "States' Rights" and the
"Moral Majority" which is neither moral nor a majority.



Historic fact:  In the month of August 2011, the Trade Balance Deficit with
China alone, increased  by 7.42%, to $29 billion.  This is the statistic for one
month of trading, in terms of goods and services.  This was a new record at the
time.   In as much, China came out on top for the 304th consecutive month, in
its trading with the United States.

Furthermore, the United States has not had a trade balance surplus in trading
with the Chinese Communist Dictatorship since April of 1986.  This amounts
to 28 years of money leaking into a dictatorship, by the billions per month.
America is a leaking ship soon to capsize.  It is now the Year 2014.  The
United States has gone over 335 consecutive months accumulating a trade
balance deficit, in commerce with China.

Here is the irony:  In August 2011, corporate greed breaks a new record, to the
detriment of the 90% of the rest of America.  The following month began the
showdown with corporate greed, in the form of the worldwide OWS movement.
FoxNews, in a predictable fashion, defamed the surprisingly peaceful people who
elected to assert their First Amendment Rights.  All the while,  official statistics
prove that the First Amendment people of Zuccotti Park were generally correct.
Greed has been destroying America all along, and sweatshop importation has
been the vehicle doing so.


Now, the most current news (at the time of this writing) is that the monthly
Trade Balance Deficit,, in trading with China, has decreased (narrowed) in
February and March 2013.  In fact, the total U.S. Trade Balance Deficit de-
creased.  Yet, it was still woefully significant ... detrimental to the US money
supply.   In January, the trade deficit in trade with China was $27.8 billion.  In
February, it was $23.4 billion lost to the quintessential sweatshop profiteer na-
tion.    In March, the amount lost to a China notorious for its civil rights abuses
was $17.8 billion.  Money lost to China, in unfair trade practices, for the first
three months of the Year 2014, in goods alone, was $153 billion.



The Laws Against this Type of Profiteering Were
Already on the Books, in United States Federal Law.

It wouldn't have required any courage for any public figure to have stepped

forth and initiate movements designed to end America's complicity with slave
labor profiteering.  This is because laws against it are already on United States
law books, as in Section 307 of the 1930 Tariff Act, along with the May 2000
amendment  to that act.   Both are found in 19 USC 1307.   How much does
NAFTA conflict with this? 

Despite the Law, Sweatshop Labor
Importation Has Been Rampant

There is a loophole in the 1930 Tariff Act.  The law doesn't prohibit the impor-

tation of indentured/slave/convict/forced labor products "which are not mined,
produced, or manufactured in such quantities in the United States as to meet the
consumptive demands of the United States."  In addition, there are recent trade
agreements that don't require the enforcement of morally needed international
labor laws.  This means that foreign workers stand in direct jeopardy of being
brutally abused, due to no present legal recourse, short of the Nuremberg case
law authority.  Plus, there is the allegation that the 1930 Tariff Act is not being

The evidence is publicly evident.  Sweatshop labor, forced labor, and plantation
labor is rampant throughout the modern world in general.  So, is the use of min-
ors as combat soldiers.  Many products made by laborers defrauded of their
wages have been entering American docks and airports for years.  It's equi-
valent to receiving stolen property on a grand scale.  It has robbed America
of its money supply.

When You Liberate Others, You Liberate Yourself

A properly paid foreign worker has a way of increasing product demand for

Amercan products, even from a third party nation.  For example, properly paid
Chinese workers might only buy from Europe.  Increased European revenue
might result in Europe importing more from America, thereby bringing add-
ed income to America.  Such a thing puts American workers back to work,
assuming that the level of manufacturing will increase in the United States,
so that workers will be in demand.  Such a thing can also enable mid-sized
entrepreneurs to either compete in smaller scaled markets or more easily en-
ter the ranks of subcontractor, simply by virtue of increased demand.

Slave Labor Profiteering is Even an Injustice
to the Citizenry of the Nation that Engages in it

Foreign slave labor profiteering results in unfair advantages over the citizens
of the nation that practices it.   This is because those who profit from foreign
slave labor steal economic power from the multitudes, and in the process, they
steal multiple advantages from their fellow countrymen.   That is to say, they
cheat in order to get their standing in life, and that is unfair to everyone else.
After all, the average entrepreneur cannot compete with the low wage advan-
tage that these corporations use for their selfish gain, at the expense of the
US Trade Balance Account and the Gross Domestic Product, as well as the
per capita income.  Foreign slave labor profiteering, therefore, is even an
act of violence committed against an offending nation's own citizenry. 

A Coast to Coast Crime 

If you deny that you are part of this practice, simply go into your closet and
read the labels on your clothing.  Then go into your kitchen and read the la-
bels on your appliances.  Go next throughout your house, your place of work,
and elsewhere, reading the labels on the newer merchandise.  If you have any
merchandise from a sweatshop, then the practice of slave labor profiteering
has reached your life.

In addition, if you work for a sweatshop profiteering corporation, you're in-
volved.  You are an accessory to the fact.  This includes what you find un-
der your Christmas tree.

April 24, 2017

The Washingtonian lied: Wuerl's history is opposite of its claim.

One of Wuerl's two Dignity Mass venues.
The church, itself, was later sold, as were a number of other ones.
The following is a response to the Washingtonian article that serves more
as propaganda than a conveyor of factual information.

For those unfamiliar, know that it's a multiply documented fact, supported
by Jpeg evidence and newspaper archives, that Donald Wuerl covered-up a
plurality of transgressor priests.  He also retaliated against school children
of a now-defunct Risen Lord Parish School, because their parents protested
against Wuerl in front of TV news camera

In fact, Wuerl let his attorney frighten the Ference family in a deposition room,
to the point where the family dropped the case.  The case invoned young Adam
Ference getting a bullet in the back of his head, while he sat on a school bus,
waiting to start another day of classes.

Wuerl also donated consecrated Catholic cemetery property to the notorious
Masons with whom the church is to have no association.  The land was used
for a new temple.  In addition, Wuerl allowed canonically banned Sodomite
Masses in Pittsburgh for eight consecutive years.  Plus, he appointed to ad-
ministrative posts some of  the most mean spirited, pushy, retaliatory, and
uncaring people available.  He appointed those who were proficient at in-
timidating others.  Intimidation was Wuerl's modus operandi.

The Washingtonian claims the exact opposite.  It's editorship needs to under-
stand that, when a magazine compliments someone as ruthless as Cardinal
Wuerl, it is simultaneously spitting in the face of all of the cardinal's victims.
Wuerl had many victims.  A FoxNews figure mentioned Wuerl's smile, as if
smiling is the only requisite to salvation.  Of course, the FoxNews man made
Wuerl sound all so caring.  Wuerl only cared about himself.  He didn't care
who got hurt, until lawsuit time came.

Keep in mind that the difference between this site and the Washingtonian article
is that the editorship of this Wuerlgate site gathered Jpeg evidence, news archive
links, and even a few tape recorded pieces of evidence.   With the Washingtonian,
the Pgh Post Gazette, Commonweal Magazine, etc, you only have their word.  No
proof in what they stated.  In fact checking, a number of falsehoods were discover-
ed in Post Gazette articles.

And remember ... I was there, in Pittsburgh during the Wuerl years.  I saw the pain
in people's eyes, their facial expressions of disheveled "ennui," and even looks of
disconcerting fear.  I even heard the shock-ridden vocal tones, over the phone, one

From a very early time, Wuerl was recognized by many as a liar, a fake, and
a devil.  He is now one of the cardinals choosing candidates for the hierarchy.
So, remember this:

Wuerl chose to ordain, over a credible & naturally inclined deacon, the James
Torquato who spent 7 years refusing to keep his homosexual hands to himself,
and who then instantly retaliated as soon as he was reported for wrongdoing.
That type of person is Wuerl's choice for high positions in the church.  This is
based on Wuerl's actual track record.

More concisely, if you are wondering what type of priest Cardinal Wuerl will
recommend for an appointment to the rank of bishop, the answer is that he will
recommend the very type of priest he chose to ordain.  He will chose the James
Torquato type.  Therefore, you need to learn about the Jame Torquato Case, in
order to know what to expect in the higher seats of the church.

This post provides links to photocopied evidence which supports the al-
legations made against one of Wuerl's former personal secretaries.  Most
of the jpegs are in the February 2014 archive.

The most pertinent feature of this case is that Wuerl ordained Torquato.
In fact, Wuerl was the rector of the Pittsburgh diocesan seminary while
Torquato was a seminarian there.  This means that Torquato is the show-
room edition of Wuerl's version of "priestly" formation.

Another pertinent feature of the Torquato case was the physical pursuit
that could have ended in physical harm.  In fact, there was an instance
where a full scale brawl almost broke out.  Wuerl could have put the
pursuit to halt, but failed to do so.  It were as if he wanted something
unfortunate to happen to those being pursued, I being one of them.
The physical pursuit happened shortly after I called the papal nuncio,
in order to report Wuerl and Torquato.  If what occurred thereafter was
not whistle-blower retaliation, then it an untold coincidence.

Moreover, while I was in downtown Pittsburgh, at One Oxford Center,
speaking via telephone to one of the pursuers, he expressly said, "You
do know that I would have gone through you to get to {Torquato's
accuser}.  Construe this to mean physically.

Donald Wuerl was invisible during the entire time span.  In fact, he proved
himself less than honorable, in never facing the men whom he almost got
severely injured by means of letting the Torquato retaliations go without
Wuerl's objection.  On Donald Wuerl's part, this is known as Deliberate
Indifference and the Ratification of Torquato's actions.

Donald Wuerl had the moral obligation to intervene and have the pursuit
halted.   He could have done this by promising the pursuers that Diocese
of Pittsburgh personnel would no longer retaliate against family members
of James Torquato's accuser.  This would have been accompanied by Don-
ald Wuerl promising to return to the uncle of the accuser those business ac-
counts which were terminated, in retaliaton for reporting Torquato and then
demanding compensation for damages caused by Torquato.

The Donald Wuerl who in lived in luxurious and comfortable settings for dec-
ades, did not stop the retaliations.  It's  interesting how those who live in wall-
to-wall comfort cause others to suffer intensely.

As a quick review, Wuerl's retaliatory secretary was ordained by Wuerl in
1989.  Then, in 1990, he began his intermittent acts of physically invasive
sexual harassment under the disguise of spiritual direction sessions.  This
means that there is no indication that this priest had any intention to honor
his vows of ordination.

In January 1998, he was reported to Wuerl.  The first wave of retaliations
came shortly thereafter.  Then, in the of Summer 1999, the second wave
of retaliation came after I filed a complaint against Wuerl and Torquato
at a local magistrate's office, to have them tried for Summary Offense
charges related to the reckless endangerment involved in the first wave
of retaliations.   Filing a complaint, to remedy the first wave of wave of
retaliations, resulted in a second wave of retaliations.

The praise of Wuerl was nothing more than sleight of hand semantics,
direct falsehoods, and the omission of pivotal fact which would have
gotten him instantaneously condemned in the court of public opinion
if the facts about him had been revealed in the Year 2002.  This web
page, therefore, serves as a public service, in showing people to not
entrust any matter to Wuerl and to not ever trust Wuerl in any matter. 

The matter concerning Wuerl's former secretary vividly shows that Don-
ald Wuerl is more than willing to let you and anyone else be hurt badly,
if and when he can profit from hurting you or anyone else badly.  Proof
that Wuerl is still the way he was during the 1998 and 1999 retaliations
exists in the fact that he never paid a penny of restitution for all the eco-
nomic loss that he let be inflicted upon to three persons during any of the

The matter concerning Wuerl's former secretary (and the retaliatory con-
duct that ensued after his secretary was reported) is outlined on the se-
cond page of the previously cited website.  It's now located at this site.

Cardinal Wuerl canonically trapped a credible whisteblower deacon, not letting him be ordained a priest, anywhere

Donald Wuerl and his administrators mistreated the credible accuser of a certain
priest whose name will be left anonymous, being that the priest is now deceased.
The intention of this account is to contrast the ways in which Wuerl's predeces-
sors treated the person with the way in which Wuerl treated him.

Now, Wuerl was the rector of the Pgh seminary when this gentleman was in the
seminary.  In fact, James Torquato was in the seminary at the same time, and the
credible gentleman who should have been ordained a priest described Torquato
as "a brown-noser," as in kissing up to Wuerl.

Wuerl elected to ordain the James Torquato who would quickly become sexual-
ly abusive, while rejecting the good-willed whistle-blower.  Wuerl has chosen
the unnatural ones over the natural ones, throughout the years.  Even in the case
of the Moscow diocese priest who denied Holy Communion to an avowed lesbian
who disowned the Catholic Faith, Wuerl sided with the grotesquely androgynous
and obese female who frighteningly looked like a "nerdy," overweight male office

The individual highlighted here would have made a very effective confessional
priest.  The irony is that people, for the most part, abandoned the Sacrament of
Penance ... aka, the Sacrament of Reconciliation ... aka the confessional.  After
all, on Sundays people are going to communion by the truck load.  But, on Sat-
urdays, the confessionals throughout the modern church are often unoccupied.

The accused priest: 

Anonymous and deceased.  His assignments included having the headmaster
post at two Catholic high schools, as well as the pastor posts of two Catholic
parishes.  This also included an assistant pastor post in the Pittsburgh area.
He died in the Year 2004.

Accusation:  Full blown physical assault, (one time only), to the tune of
either attempted invasive contact or something similar.  The credible accus-
er alleged that he was rendered unconscious during the conflagration which,
according to him, was an intense altercation.  However, the altercation was
more of a Greco Roman wrestling match, with full scale pushing, shoving,
and tight holds, as opposed to any type of knockout punch boxing.  He
was not sure what actually happened while he was unconscious.  

The alleged circumstance surrounding alleged assault:  The credible
accuser alleges that the assault took place after a dinner outing.  The pur-
pose of the dinner was to talk about the young man chances of obtaining
a vocation to the priesthood.  The alleged assault took place after the
priest asked the gentleman very personal preference questions.

In review:

The accuser originally asked Sotak for vocational guidance, in the hope
to receive assistance in entering a seminary, should he finally decide to
pursue a vocation to the priesthood.  They went to dinner, to discuss
the matter.  After dinner came the alleged altercation.

Age of Accuser at the time of the alleged assault:  19, 20, or so.  This
is pertinent, because, if a victim is over 18 years of age, Wuerl will let
that person be abandoned ... if not harassed.

The following is alleged by Fr. Donald Sotak's credible accuser:

- The alleged assault took place during the tenure of Pittsburgh diocesan
   bishop, Vincent Leonard, in the mid 1970s.

- The priest was immediately reported to Pittsburgh diocesan personnel
   and the response was to quickly move him to a new domicile.

- The accuser joined the Pittsburgh seminary in the 1980s, eventually being
   ordained a deacon.  Wuerl was the rector of the diocesan seminary at the
   time.  Then, Wuerl was ordained a bishop, shortly thereafter.  By 1988,
   Wuerl was assigned to Pittsburgh.  Thus, Wuerl was now in charge of the
    anonymous priest's accuser.

- The credible accuser was ordained into the diaconate, a vocation one step
   away from the priesthood.  Yet, he was commanded by a vocations director
   to tell people that he voluntarily delayed his own ordination.  This, of course,
   was a lie.  The gentleman very much wanted to be a priest as soon as reason-
   ably possible.  Donald Wuerl was preventing this from happening.

- The credible accuser stated that the vocation director told him that he was to
   either sign a paper stating that he voluntarily delayed his own ordination or else
 "they" would dig-up some excuse to delay his ordination.  This is an element of
  whistle blower retaliation.

- While at seminary, the credible accuser had a window view to the parking garage,
   where he could allegedly see Wuerl and a certain young man here and a certain
   young man there leave alone, most ly after classes which were held at the nearby
   Catholic college, Duquesne University.

- A note of fact:  Donald Wuerl became an auxiliary bishop in 1986 and was
  eventually sent to Seattle Washington, concerning the Hunthausen Controversy.
  He was next assigned to the Pittsburgh diocese in 1988.

- It was under Wuerl when the credible accuser was allegedly sent to a Philadel-
   phia clinic for a psychological assessment.  The alleged diagnosis was that he
   was credible and suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.   Being diag-
   nosed with PTSD augments an accuser's credibility.

- The Pittsburgh diocesan personnel refused to accept the final assessment of the
   Philadelphia clinic.  They were apparently in search of an official sheet of paper
   which would state something differently about the credible seminarian.  So, they
   demanded that he go for yet another psychological assessment . . . in either
   St. Louis or Maryland.

- The credible accuser assumed that Wuerl was controlling the diocesan admini-
   strators on puppet strings ... that he was the person who ultimately wanted an
   official sheet of paper stating something other than what was stated by the Philly
   clinic.  This would mean that Wuerl was allegedly looking to play a game with
   loaded dice and a stacked deck of cards.

- It was at that point in time when the credible accuser departed from diocesan
   ministry.  Things had become too Orwellian for him.  He stated that he literally
   feared that he was going to be drugged into a catatonic state.  He remembers
   his time of exit being 1994.  This was during the musical chairs cover-up of a
   Fr Edward Huff.  This was also the time when the Cipolla case was underway
   at the highest court of the Vatican.  This was shortly before James Torquato
   became Wuerl's personal secretary.

- Incidentally, the credible accuser remembers James Torquato at the seminary.
  According to him, Torquato cow-towed to authority, as if to be seeking pro-
  motion points.  The actual expression used to describe Torquato was "brown

- This case, being that it was allegedly covered-up from the middle 1970's to the
   end of 2011, would easily qualify as Cardinal Wuerl's sixth simultaneous cover-
   up during the sameone  year; the year being 1988.  Now, this was an inherited
   cover-up, but it can be filed with the Wolk, Zula, Pucci, Hoehl, and Wellinger

  As a brief review:

  The Wolk, Zula, and Pucci cases were the Triple Cover-up.

  The Hoehl case was the Hot Potato Cover-up, where John Hoehl, my former
  high school headmaster, was placed back into ministry in July of 1988, and
  was only dismissed by Wuerl after Fr. Wolk was indicted.

  The Huff case is the Musical Chairs Cover-up involving the priest who was
  reported three times to Wuerl, by more than one person each time.

  The Torquato case had the most evidentiary support attached to it and it re-
  sulted in economic retaliation, as well as the physical pursuit of Torquato's
  credible accuser and .... yours truly.

  The Wellinger case, incidentally, was the one where the original reports about
  Wellinger were allegedly ignored. 

    Additionally alleged by the accuser was that:

 - The diocese's Fr. Charles Bober, STD, sent a letter to the credible seminarian
    & deacon, notifying him that he would get no stipend from the diocese.  The
    seminarian accuser then had recourse to a Fr. Bob Guay whom I once met,
    and according the seminarian, he had been getting his $700 monthly stipend
    (pension) up to the time of my interview with him.  Such checks read, "For
    services rendered."

- The accuser also stated that the letter sounded almost like a damning excom-
   munication letter.  There was no Peace of Christ within it, to say the least  ...
   ...  at least according to seminarian/deacon whom Wuerl trapped and who
   could not be ordained a priest.

- During a meeting, diocesan personnel bragged to the seminarian that
  they had an excellent policy for handling clergy abuse victims.  Yet,
  they said that the policy did NOT apply to Sotak's accuser, because he
  was a deacon.  HOWEVER, the alleged assault took place when he was
  a layman - a civilian - a parishioner.

- Even in 2002, when Wuerl finally suspended several priests who had long since
   been attached to credible sex abuse allegations, he permitted this priest to stay
   at his post.  Keep in mind that Wuerl's observed habit was that of doing nothing
   to any priest whose accuser was over the age of 18 at the time of the alleged

- Years after the credible accuser, seminarian, and deacon departed from Pitts-
   burgh diocesan ministry, he was interviewed by Randy Engel, former editor of
   the Vietnam Journal and author of the Rite of Sodomy.  The interview was to
   be kept from the public, out of fear of retaliation against the credible deacon.
   This is important to note, because it shows that the accusation is not some-
   thing recently conjured.  The accusation has been longstanding.

- In fact, while this deacon was at another seminary, he was allegedly told by one
   of the faculty priests that the priest he accused allegedly had other complaints
   against him.  Then, suddenly, the complaints of other young men were no long-
   er in the record ... allegedly.

The credible accuser furthermore alleged/averred the following:

It seemed to him that Donald Wuerl had a new teacher's pet every semester, while
Wuerl was the rector of the Pittsburgh seminary.  However, none of Wuerl's pets
were never ordained, according to the gentleman.  He even saw one of Wuerl's
seminary pets leave in anger, never to return.  This was generally corroborated by
a specific source who alleged an added thing about Wuerl.

If that added allegation is true, then it confirms the prior allegations of Wuerl having
been a practicing homosexual . . . that Donald Wuerl was engaged in the breaking
of his priesthood vows.  Now, if the allegation is not true, then a number of people
have lied to me about Wuerl allegedly being a practicing homosexual; not merely
one or two.

Now, Randy Engel did establish the fact that Wuerldid have a nexus with Pitts-
burgh's homosexual world, and according to other sources, Wuerl really was
called Donna while in the Pittsburgh area.  It is even alleged that Donna is what
seminarians called him.   In fact, insiders of the Washington archdiocese have
been witnessed calling him Wuerl the Girl.

Now, Wuerl carrying an effeminate demeanor off camera, with stereotypical
effeminate mannerisms, was alleged by more than one person.  For example,
in a church basement, when only church volunteers were in the kitchen, Wuerl
was allegedly seen acting like the stereotypical "flaming fairy" all of a sudden.
The phrase used was "acting girly."

And he is very short, even though he finagles camera shots to make him look
much taller than he is.  Heightwise, he came up to my chest, at best.  Plus, the
Washington Post called him a sleight man, in describing how surprisingly tiny
he is, when comparing the reality of meeting him in person with the fabricated
photo ops which included him standing on a step that was hidden behind a
limo, while he shook hands with people on ground-level.

Biennial Soirees for the Rich and Influential

While he was the bishop of Pittsburgh, Wuerl would hold a soireƩ at his Warwick
Terrace manor house twice a year, where he would play host to the influential and
wealthy.  Seminarians & deacons would dress in green/blue blazers, park the cars
of the influential guests and also serve them hors d'oeuvres.  This means that Wuerl
had men dedicated to the service of God play the role of secular valets and waiters.
It was very worldly, to say the least.  None the less, Wuerl would meet the
influential people at the door, himself.  He would play the role of porter ...
... the door man.  He absolutely needed their protection, to get him through
all of his corruption.  He was in need of accomplices.

The biennial Warwick Terrace event was surmised/presumed as having been
Wuerl's way of getting the rich and powerful to protect him in every aspect of
life.  I personally witnessed how protected Wuerl was when Father Torquato's
accuser and I attempted to file Summary Offense charges against Wuerl and
Torquato.  Shortly after, we found ourselves caught in the midst of the second
wave of the Torquato Retaliations.


According to Fr. Sotak's accuser, Wuerl would give inordinate attention to the
rich and powerful, while treating the common citizen with dismissive elitist con-
tempt.  That is to say, Wuerl cow-towed to the powerful of society.  I personal-
ly witnessed this haughty elitist contemptuousness.  While it was occurring, Wuerl
resembled a certain theater major at a college I attended.  The theater major, as
tiny as Donald Wuerl, was found to have been engaged in an affair with a certain
lieutenant governor's son ... NOT of the State of Pennsylvania, though.

David Zubik (present bishop of Pittsburgh) was involved in the case, and the
credible accuser/seminarian/deacon alleged that Zubik expressly told him that
he regarded both "the assailed victim and the {predatory} priest as victims."

The credible accuser mentioned that a John Sweeney told him that he "better
not tell anyone" about his accusations against the priest in question or the
diocese in general.

The Sandusky revelations seems to have given a number of abuse victims a
sense of freedom in the State of Pennsylvania.  The sense of intimidation im-
posed upon Pennsylvania victims/accusers departed like wheat chaff in a
wind storm, as soon as the Penn State Scandal came to the fore.

Concerning the other two bishops, keep in mind that Vincent Leonard and
Anthony Bevilacqua provided the credible accuser with zero interference.
He was only in emotional turmoil during Wuerl's tenure.  He only left the
ministry, on account of Wuerl's administrators.  There was no other reason.
