Special Report: The Attempted Coup of The Catholic Church in Boston
(Part 1 of 3)

By Fr. Robert J. Carr
Catholic Online

Thursday of last week Catholic Online broke its silence about a sad reality going on behind the scenes. If you noticed earlier in the week Catholic Online was down for about one day.

According to the notice explaining what happened, Catholic Online states that they have been victims of a form of cyber terrorism. (my word not Catholic Online's). These are daily attempts to hack into Catholic Online and silence the message. This is true.

Catholic Online has been the target of a campaign to force its silence for sometime (Broken Noses and Bloody Lips). I have been such a target as well.

I became aware of this when sometime ago I would put up the latest discoveries about the real hidden agendas behind the "crisis" in the Catholic Church on my blog. I would then find the servers would be offline and the blog would not be accessible by anyone. The pattern was consistent and upon informing my web hosting company steps were taken to further strengthen their security. Catholic Online is undergoing a similar, yet, even more serious and vicious attack.

The great thing about this cyber-terrorism is that it is counter-productive. When someone tries to silence you then they are confirming that what you say is true. Ghandi once said, "First they ignore you, then they mock you and then they attack you. When they attack you, you've won." Well, we won.

It is time to look at what I recently posted on Catholic Online. The answer is Rebuilding Our Church Part 1. It is there that I mention that Voice of the Faithful New Jersey is registered to a member of Rent-A-Priest. I then explain that Rent-A-Priest is actually a Massachusetts non-profit registered with the Secretary of Commonwealth called CITI ministries. CITI means Celibacy Is The Issue. If you study the mission of Rent-A-Priest you will see it is really not there to provide an alternative for Roman Catholics, there is no such thing. It is actually there as part of a system we discovered at the beginning of the crisis to stage a coup of the Roman Catholic Church.

Let me explain. Rent-A-Priest claims to offer an alternative to the Catholic teaching on marriage and ordination. Well, there is no such thing. If the church teaches one thing and you teach another, you are not teaching Catholic teaching. If you encourage people to engage your teaching against the Church then you are encouraging a coup of the Church. Indeed, Voice of the Faithful readily admits that is its mission.

The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws disgrees with the American laws against marijuana use. It is not against the law to disagree with these laws as long as members obey them. Clearly the legislation is there for good reason, but NORML does not see it that way. Again that is not illegal. Yet, the minute NORML were to encourage others to disobey these laws, they would be working to undermine the authority of the US Government. If members sell that marijuana as a method of changing those laws, they break the law.

It is the latter that CITI ministries does to the Catholic Church. This action is not part of its mission; this IS its mission. The goal is, as is also stated literally at Voice of the Faithful, to stage a coup of the Roman Catholic Church.

Yet, the irony is in the name of the parent organization. Celibacy Is The Issue. Well, then if Celibacy Is The Issue, let us see how many times Celibacy has been mentioned by those attacking the Church and you can see a bit of what is going on behind the scenes. More importantly you can see WHO is behind the scenes.

This brings to light a whole new look at the crisis. CITI Ministries is a Massachusetts company organized by a Louise Haggett, a former advertising executive. She claims to have started the company because she could not get a priest to give her mother last rites. Yet, that does not explain the reason for former priests doing marriages that are certified by another religion.

During 2002, I appeared on the WCVB-TV television show Chronicle. As I was walking on the set, Stephen Pope was walking off the set. Pope, a professor of theology at Boston College, supports an end to celibacy for priests and promotes the gay agenda. He had just spoken about his perception about the need to eliminate the rule for celibacy in the Roman Catholic Church. Pope could not be reached for comment.

Chronicle in a later show also has put forth the idea that using a Rent-A-Priest is an option for today's Catholics.

Lawyers, victims, politicians throughout the crisis and over and over again were calling for married and women priests as well.

The CEO of this Hearst-Argyle television station, on which these episodes of Chronicle aired, is Paul LaCamera. LaCamera was the first to call for the removal of Cardinal Law. He also used the facilities of this federally licensed television station to promote Voice of the Faithful, which has stated as its mission, to encourage the laity to rise up and take power from the hierarchy.

Indeed, Voice of the Faithful New Jersey lists the following organizations as their sympathizers...

Call to Action
Women's Ordination Conference (WOC)
Pax Christi
Association for the Rights of Catholics in the Church (ARCC)
Catholics Speak Out

Most have as their stated agenda some form of overthrow of Church teaching. The Association for Rights of Catholics in the Church wants to cast out the entire Church government and replace it with a constitution already written. The constitution sits on the websites of Temple University in Pennsylvania. It was penned by such people as Leonard Swidler of Temple University and Ingrid Shafer of the University of Science and Arts in Oklahoma. She is also Andrew Greeley's biographer.
