Donald Wuerl: Clone of the Scribes & Pharisees

Evidence of the Torquato Cover-up, showing
that the praise of Wuerl was deceptive propaganda,
and NOT honest journalism.
Worldly Honors and the Absence of Humility

The following passage of Sacred Scripture was spoken by the only Messiah that
mankind will ever have:  "A prophet is not without honor, except in his native place, among

his own kindred, and in his own house."  Conversely speaking, one can deduce from the 
same Sacred Script that he who receives great honor in his native place and among
his own people is not a prophet.  Well, Donald Wuerl is a native of Pittsburgh, and
he had a gluttonous supply of artificial and contrived honors bestowed upon him
there.  It was easily to prove contrived in light of the fact that Wuerl was being
sued left and right by citizens living in Southwestern Pennsylvania.  He was taken
to every court venue, State and Federal.  This includes the United States Supreme
Court..  In Pittsburgh, during the Wuerl years, the voice of the People was very
much suppressed.  Plus, the abuse of Pittsburgh Police in the 1990s was so well
known that even the world famous Geraldo Rivera reported on it.
EWTN was "on to Wuerl" in the 1990s, proven by the letter above.

Therefore, according to the Gospels, Wuerl is not a . . . prophet.  After all, Wuerl 
aligned himself with Marcial Maciel during a time when he didn't know that Maciel
the Molester would have his works & plagiarisms banned by order of Benedict XVI.

The local media's portrayal of Donald  Wuerl was equivalent to their having said,
"our bishop can beat up your bishop." Now, it can be reasonably suspected that
the local media's praise of Wuerl was done to keep the Catholic anti-defamation
league off of the local media's back.  However, in praising Wuerl the way in which
he was praised, the local media de facto belittled the other Catholic bishop's in
America.  That is defamatory to Catholics elsewhere.

The Isolate-and-Converge Tactic

Donald Wuerl closed 35% of the 333 Pittsburgh area parishes that were in ex-
istence the day he took charge.  Yet, between 1988 and 2004, the Catholic
population in the Pittsburgh vicinity only dropped 3% (837,000 to 812,000).

Well, one of the 118 parishes designated for closure was a Franciscan and
Croatian parish that canonically belonged to the same province as does the
famed (or infamous) Saint James Parish, in Medjugorje.  It is known as the
Province of the Assumption in Hercegovina

Shortly after Donald  Wuerl announced his intent to close that parish, its pastor
signed a letter stating that Wuerl violated canon law in his having chosen to close
it.  In response, Wuerl ordered the pastor to his office.  But, Wuerl did not order
the pastor there for the purpose of having a friendly dialogue.  In fact, as soon as
the pastor entered Wuerl's office, he found himself surrounded by a entourage of
people who served the function of intimidating office decor.

Such a technique can constrict a invited person's mental processes so much so
that it can easily close a case before it's even opened.  There was no one-on-one
meeting with a kindly father figure.  There were no prior meetings with courteous
canon lawyers.  There was no point by point discussion of the contents of the let-
ter.  There was not even an acknowledgment that closing an unique parish could
be emotionally painful for its ethnic parishioners.

Rather, there was one question posed to an isolated priest, by a bishop sitting
amidst an inhospitable entourage that can cause a person to freeze.  Wuerl chal-
lenged the pastor to produce one article of canon law that was violated by him.
Intimidating someone is an effective way to prevent his thoughts from flowing.
Wuerl could have been courteous and understanding about the parishioners'
grief, but he elected to operate in the intimidation mode.  Wuerl's thug tactic
didn't cause the parishioners to backdown.  They ended up filing a lawsuit
against Wuerl.

Shortly after that office visit, the pastor made a public apology for having signed
the letter, while also mentioning how intimidating that meeting was.  In fact, he
said that he had to take a few days off, being that it was such a traumatizing ex-
perience.  All in all, it is not healthy for a bishop to employ those types of tactics.

The Common Tactic

This case and the case of Wuerl's former personal secretary have one common
trait.  In both accounts, you can see that the chosen technique of Wuerl is to iso-
late you and then converge upon you.  Let it be repeated.   Donald Wuerl's tactic
is to get you isolated, defenseless, and abandoned.  Then he attacks.

In the case of Wuerl's former secretary, the accuser was told that bringing his
many pieces of evidence to the diocesan building would be helpful.  Take note
that he was not asked to bring in copies of the evidence.  Well, a letter was sent
back to Wuerl's personnel, informing them that they would only be shown the
pieces of evidence in a neutral place, with a third party holding them, allowing
diocesan personnel to see every inch of every piece of evidence, but never get-
ting their hands on any of it.  That is to say, the evidence was not going to be
handed over to the diocese in good faith.  That is when serpentine behavior
turned into full scale hammering.

Wuerl's Use of a De Facto Corruption of Blood Policy,
in Punishing the Children of those Adults who Publically
Objected to Donald Wuerl's Breaking of a Promise

Risen Lord Parish is one of the Pittsburgh diocesan parishes.  It had a parochial
school when Donald Wuerl assumed power in Pittsburgh, but it has no school at
present.  Wuerl designated Risen Lord Parish School for closure.  The excuse
was the lack of financial resources.  Parents of the student body appealed to the
diocese, in their desire to have Risen Lord Parish School kept open.  So, a deal
was made by the diocese, where the school would remain open, if the parents
and teachers raised a certain sum of money.  It had to be cash, and not merely
pledges.  The parents and teachers successfully raised the required sum of mon-
ey, if pledges were counted.  Wuerl closed the school.

In response to Wuerl's closing of the school, a number of the parishioners per-
formed a public protest, even with protest signs in hand.  In fact, the event made
local television headline news.  In response to the protest, Wuerl's Diocese of
Pittsburgh mandated that all Risen Lord Parish protesters were required to at-
tend classes on how to show respect to one's bishop, under penalty of having
their children barred admission into all other Pittsburgh diocesan schools.  This
policy was euphemistically called "denying school transfers," and the mandated
classes were euphemistically called "Three Hours of Reconciliation Counselling."

Punishing children for the actions of a parent is known as the corruption of blood.
Specifically speaking, Corruption of Blood actions consist in denying the children
their inheritance, on account of a treasonable act of one of their parents.   The
children of Risen Lord Parish School were faced with loosing the inheritance
of a Catholic school education, at the hands of Donald Wuerl, even though
they did absolutely nothing wrong.  Donald Wuerl is heralded as a protector
of children who cares about their education.  Well, he was ready to keep a
number of children out of diocesan schools.

One question remains in the Risen Lord Parish School case.
What happened to the money that the people raised?
Ann Rodgers of the Post Gazette rewrote the Wolk-Zula-Pucci cover-up,
making Wuerl look like a hero in his own deceit.  That was the abuse of
an entire newspaper company.

Incidentally, Donald Wuerl did NOT write the Teachings of Christ  catechism 
book.  Nor was it officially claimed that he did.  He was recognized as its co-
editor; one out of three editors.  Several peeople werer recognized as the co-

In 2006, Wuerl was on CSPAN.  In the parting scene, Wuerl was outside the
national shrine, shaking hands with a few passerbyers.  In that shot, Wuerl
literally looked 6'2.  In that scene, Wuerl was standing on a stairway step that
was hidden by a long limousine.  Wuerl then got into the limousine and rode
off.   It was not a scene of Franciscan poverty or Carmelite simplicity.  It cer-
tainly wasn't a scene of Dominican wisdom, either.  Donald Wuerl's egress
via limousine was enough to turn off numerous prospective converts.  It was
the religious hypocrisy of a pillow mint cleric, in direct violation of the Gospel

Message, squared and cubed.

"The Elizabeth Ann Seton Award for Contributions to
Catholic Education" Has Nothing to do with Educating
or Writing. It Involves Financial Contributions only.

Wuerl was advertised as the winner of the "prestigious Elizabeth Ann Seton
Award for his ongoing work as a teacher and educator."  This is an outright
lie.  The Elizabeth Ann Seton Award is simply an award for supporting Catho-
lic educational institutions with money; by either fund raising or philanthropy.
It's a "thanks for the money award."

The founder of the National Dance Institute won that award in 1996.  Wuerl
won it in 1995.  Therefore, if you ever win the lottery and then donate $5 mil-
lion, while making it known that you are considering to donate an additional
$5 million in the near future, chances are that you will win the exact same
"prestigious" award that Wuerl won in 1995, even if you know little about
Catholicism.  In addition, how prestigious can an award be when eight people
win it in one day?

Incidentally, Donald Wuerl's achievement consisted in the corporate fund rais-
ing effort to keep four inner city Pittsburgh diocesan schools open.  It was not
several schools, as the Wuerl propaganda machine alleged.  In fact, the total
enrollment of the four schools at any one time was only 850 students.  The
students did not attend for free.  For the 2002/2003 school season, each
student's guardian or parent was charged $1,480 of the $3,700 tuition bill.

The organization which was ultimately formed to maintain the inner city 

schools is called the Extra Mile Education Foundation.  It had twenty board 
members other than Wuerl in 2002, and the vast majority of them came from 
the corporate & finance world.  So, why didn't they get win the Elizabeth 
Ann Seton Award, also?

Now, keeping these four schools open was a good cause. But, it seems to
have been a cause for Donald Wuerl's public image more than the children.
Concerning the Extra Mile Education Foundation, 85.7% of its 2004 oper-
ating budget went to the programs and services that it was established to
provide. Its Charity Navigator Rating was 56.59.  That constitutes a three
star rating.  So, if it still exists, give if you can.

Keep in mind that any person with the influence that comes with the title,
Bishop of Pittsburgh, could have done the same thing.  In  fact, you would
expect someone with that influence to accomplish much more that what
Wuerl accomplished during his 18 year tenure.

The Hypocritical Irony Attached to Praising
Wuerl for this Effort which was only Made
Possible by Corporate Intervention

The irony to giving Donald Wuerl the Elizabeth Ann Seton Award is that, if he
were so great a maintainer of Catholic school education, then why did he close
the number of Catholic parochial schools that he closed?  In fact, the parents
of Risen Lord Parish should all be given the Elizabeth Ann Seton Award for
their efforts.

Concerning Donald Wuerl being claimed as the great catechist, know that he did
author the catechism book titled, the Teachings of  Christ He was merely one 

of three editors of that book which was first published in 1976.  This is mentioned,
because it was repeatedly claimed that Wuerl wrote that book single-handedly.  He
did not so do.  A co-editor is not a sole author.

Matthew, Chapter 6:  Do Not Be Like the Hypocrites

It is written:

When you give alms, do not blow a trumpet before
you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in
the streets, to win the praise of others.

Concerning those four inner city schools, Wuerl definitely blew a trumpet before
him.  It was not even his alms that were being given.  It was someone else's mon-
ey.  Nonetheless, such trumpet blowing, according to the Gospels, is the sign of
a hypocrite.

Who is More Valuable: The Jesus Christ who never
won an award or the Donald Wuerl who Waves his
tokens in your Face?

Jesus never received a single award during his lifetime.  Does this mean that he
was an inept teacher who should be ignored and replaced with Donald Wuerl?
It is a valid question to ask in light of the observation that, whenever Donald
Wuerl's name is brought into a conversation, Jesus' name seems to be left out.
In as much:

Jesus gave sight to the blind and functionality to the crippled.  He cast out fero-
cious demons, multiplied loaves of bread, and calm a stormy sea.  How often
has Donald Wuerl done this?

- Did Donald Wuerl ever stop a war as did Francis of Assisi?
- Has Donald Wuerl ever converted a nation as did Patrick?
- Has his preaching ever made fish leap throughout a lake
   (as did Anthony of Padua's)?
- Did Wuerl ever risk his life for what is right?

How many times did Wuerl give the fullness of breath to asthmatics, instead of
letting them be on the run during the course of a diocesan retaliation?  In fact,
how times has Wuerl's administering  of the  seventh sacrament of  the church
resulted in a healing, as the Epistle of  James promised it would?

Zero times?

Well, if that's the case, then why all the media praise about Wuerl?
Praising someone like Wuerl makes the press look insignificant.

The Stalin Complex

The Napoleon Bonaparte who was portrayed as a 5'2" (even 4'11") corporal was
actually a 5'7 1/2" graduate of the Royal Military School, in Paris.  His height was
slightly above average for an early 19th Century continental European male, and 

he was only called the Little Corporal as a show of filiality by his soldiers, on ac-
count of his camarderie with them.  So, historic fact would have you refrain from
using the phrase, "Napoleon Complex."  However, the phrase "Stalin Complex"
would be applicable in describing Donald Wuerl, the Elevator Shoes Kid.  This
complex appears to be the state of mind displayed in either Donald Wuerl or in
the public relations personnel who  constructed Wuerl's public image.

Joseph Stalin was a frail 5'5 1/2.  He was only slightly taller than Wuerl.  Yet, 

film clips and statuary made him appear to be of an intimidating height and sta-
ture.  In fact, Stalin was given the titles, Brilliant Genius of Humanity, Gardener 
of Human Happiness, and Father of Nations.  His reputation for protecting people's 
rights was such that, whenever atrocities were being committed against Soviet cit-
izens, the people caught in the middle of them were telling each other that Stalin 
probably didn't know they were happening.   The fact was that he was the one 
who ordered them to be done.

Joseph Stalin, despite all of the media propaganda, deceptive photographs, and
exaggerated statues, was condemned in 1956 and even in the 1980s.  His propa-
ganda image collapsed.

Oliver Cromwell, three years after his death, was exhumed, hung, drawn, and
quartered, having been formally declared a criminal.  the surviving accomplices
of Cromwell who cooperated in the regicide of Charles I were then executed.
Cromwell's legacy was erased, yet he was once called Lord Protector a few
years prior.

Robespierre was publicly heralded as the Incorruptible.   But, he was to later
meet the same destiny that he was imposing on others, during his Reign of Terror.

One of the marks of a tyrant is that he is repeatedly praised in the press, amidst
the absence of anyone questioning his actions and motives.  The news articles
about Donald Wuerl in the Pittsburgh Catholic and the Pittsburgh Post Gazette
were more indoctrination than it was informative news.

Another mark of a tyrant is that of performing some type of purge.  Donald Wuerl's
great regional purge saw to the dissolution of 118 parishes in a geographic area
that only saw a 3% decrease in its Catholic population (between 1988 and 2004).
Now, concerning Donald Wuerl partaking in a great nationwide purge, consider
the following:

According to Omaha archbishop Elden Curtiss, today's shortage of priests was
being artificially contrived during the same time when Wuerl was closing multiple
parishes and Catholic schools in Southwestern Pennsylvania.  It was also during
the time when Wuerl was influential in the Office of Priestly Formations.  In ad-
dition, other sources have reported that an ongoing purge in the ranks of seminary
candidates consisted in rejecting the applications of every candidate unwilling to
coexist with homosexuality.

Seminary management pertains to the office of Priestly Formation.  Donald Wuerl
was involved with the national office of Priestly Formation during the thinning of the
herd.  Therefore, if Elden Curtiss and other sources are correct, then Donald Wuerl
partook in a second great purge.

Those who ignore the errors made in history are condemned to repeat them and
to then share in a destiny similar to those who previously engaged in the errors.
History has shown that tyrants and egomaniacs fall with the weight of gravity,
along with their emblems and public relations images.  History has also shown
that tyrants are known to be disowned after their deaths, even to the point where
their successors apologize to the people for their actions.
