  1. Guam and Saipan are not the only places steeped in episcopal obscenities. US Mainland bishops are responsible for the abuse catastrophe here. They enabled and
    protected known pedophile priest rings nationwide because many of the hierarchy are active perverts themselves.

    The USCCB's useless child protection guidelines actually exempt offending bishops from punishment. They were written by then-Fr. Gregory Ingels JCD, Rome-educated ex-Chancellor and Chief Canonist for the Archdiocese of San Francisco.

    Ingels was subsequently fired when he was credibly accused of being a sadistic, bisexual pedophile. Two of his victims received a total of $2.7 million in out-of-Court settlements.

    There was further outrage when canned Ingels was allowed to live with SF's controversial Archbishop Emeritus, John Quinn, in the lavish AB's Mansion at nearby St. Patrick's Seminary. He eventually moved to Minnesota where he reportedly does property management and sub-rosa canon law consults for the USCCB.

    It is still unclear whether he was retired or defrocked. Our money is on secretly retired with lifetime benefits because Ingels was a protege of SF's former AB, later Curial Cardinal, William Levada who retired as B16's powerful CDF chief. No surprise, that office is in charge of pedophile priest disposition.

    I knew Ingels from his seminary days at St. John's in Southern California, but not even his closest priest-friends suspected him of being a pervert. Everyone mistakenly thought he was just rather crochety. He was shunned by all of us after the scandals erupted.

    1. I attended the first Mass of Fr. Greg Ingels at the gymnasium of Marin Catholic High School, where he was then a teacher (and later took advantage of a female student during off-campus counselling).

      He taught us Religion junior year -- Vatican II, etc. (Freshman year was sacred scriptures, sophomore year church history and world religions, senior year about marriage and morality.) Fr. Greg was also my assistant freshman football coach.

      I thought he was a good, earnest priest. He seemed socially awkward, and some of my classmates made fun of him in the hallways.

      When I was a law student member of the St. Thomas More Society of San Francisco, newly installed Justice Kennedy gave a speech, and Fr. Ingels gave a good introduction.

      Our paths would cross again on Saipan. He visited twice in connection with work for the diocesan marriage tribunal.

      He was and is extremely knowledgeable about canon law.

      I know for a fact that Fr. Greg was removed from public ministry, which is when he went to St. Patrick's Seminary. He was not laicized.

      I had not heard about his move to Minnesota.

    2. I think I was wrong about the first Mass; that was probably a different priest.

  2. Pervert Ingels' benefactor, now retired Cardinal William Levada, was arrested in Hawaii in 2016 on a DUI. His driver's license was revoked for a year and he was Court-ordered to undergo alcoholism counseling at age 80.

    At last report, Levada was living in the Archbishop's Mansion at St. Patrick's Seminary in Menlo Park, California. He shared it with his lifelong friend, recently deceased George Niederauer, also a retired San Francisco AB. Their close relationship was highly questionable.

    SF's current AB, Sal Cordileone, was arrested on a San Diego DUI just prior to his installation and his record was immediately sealed. Police said he was seriously impaired. However, as opposed to repentant Levada, he was quite cavalier about the incident and got away with only a $1,200 fine. He never even showed up in Court after leaving San Diego. His lawyer represented him there.

    1. “I apologize for my error in judgment and feel shame for the disgrace I have brought upon the Church and myself. I will repay my debt to society, and I ask forgiveness from my family and my friends and co-workers at the Diocese of Oakland and the Archdiocese of San Francisco," Archbishop Cordileone said in an Aug. 27 statement.

      This doesn't sound "cavalier."

    2. That statement was written by Sal's lawyer. He brushed off the whole thing at his snooty, invitation-only San Francisco installation.

      He refuses to engage with San Francisco at large, preferring wealthy parishes in Marin and San Mateo Counties, bazillionaire SF Giants baseball team owners...and the mega-millionaire Jesuits at disgracefully non-Catholic USF. Archbishop Levada kissed the perverse SJ's evil butts too, caving in to them on heavily gay domestic partnership issues. Justifiably, that got him off to a very bad start with practicing Catholics.

      I know several conservative SF chancery employees well and even they dislike non-pastoral Sal. Chancery morale is very low because he's a cold-blooded elitist. The Oakland Diocese he came from totally hated him. A San Diego priest-friend who's somewhere to the right of John Birch can't stand him either, so liberals definitely aren't the only ones who are on his case.

      You don't live in SF and you don't know what actually goes on here. We native Catholics who've lived here forever do.

    3. LOL. A typical shithead comment. I don't live there so I can't say anything about SF, but you don't live here and you get to lecture us about our situation several times a day. Well F that.

  3. I have lived in the Diocese of Oakland since 2010 and can assure you that the admiration and respect of the faithful for then-Bishop Cordileone were (and still are) 100% opposite from what you claim.

    USF Catholicity at 50-year high

    Likewise, I graduated cum laude from the University of San Francisco School of Law in the late 1980s and visit several times per year for CLE (Continuing Legal Education) and other events on campus, including Masses at St. Ignatius.

    I have many friends and high school classmates who earned their undergraduate degrees there, and for over 30 years I have received alumni publications from the Law School and the main campus across the street.

    The 1980s were a low-water mark for the Catholic identity of USF, with such abominations as the pro-abortion so-called “Catholics for a Free Choice” and gay rights groups actively recruiting on campus and distributing propaganda and free, progressive newspapers.

    At the 8:00 p.m. Sunday evening Mass, the congregation (mostly students) was summoned to stand around the altar during the Liturgy of the Eucharist.

    Some even opposed the 1987 visit of Saint John Paul II to the City, passing out circular stickers with his face within a red circle and diagonal red line, urging that S.F. be a “Pope-Free Zone” and blaming him for the AIDS crisis.

    There were numerous heterodox professors urging (anti-Catholic) “academic freedom” and pressuring the administration to recruit ever more “diverse” (non-Catholic), “progressive” faculty.

    While there were islands of orthodoxy, such as the St. Ignatius Institute and the Ignatius Press, for the most part USF seemed to be headed in the direction of an institution where its Catholic tradition was but a curiosity or historical footnote, or even an anachronism.

    Not so, today, not so!

    USF has returned to being a campus where its Catholic identity is central. Yes, there is still diversity -- Jews are well represented among alumni and donors, and there are more Muslim, Buddhist, and Hindu students.

    But there is a respect for Catholicism and for religion that pervades the campus; faith is no longer a source of embarrassment. Liberal professors tone down their hermeneutics.

    USF is more authentically Catholic than at any time since Vatican II. Mass is celebrated in accordance with the GIRM.

    Archbishop Cordileone widely respected in the City

    San Francisco has long been a wild and restless place, from the Native Americans, Spanish, Mexicans, Californios, 49ers, Chinese, Irish, and Italian immigrants, the Labor Unions, Japanese internment and Black migration, the Beatniks, Flower Children, Gay Liberation, Earth Day, the Tech Boom, and on and on.

    S.F. remains a center of Democratic politics.

    Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone is a courageous shepherd and witness to the Catholic faith who does not shirk from speaking truth to power.

    His naysayers are primarily the dying breed of so-called “Vatican II Catholics”, especially those who persist in trying to normalize the “Gay agenda” within the Archdiocese.

    Let us give thanks for the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and for Archbishop Cordileone.

    Let us pray that Archbishop Byrnes will have the insight to consult with his brother Archbishop on occasion.

  4. What are you smoking?!

    I live three blocks from USF and can tell you for a fact that the easiest place to find addresses of local abortionists is the dining hall entrance. Some of those butchers even give special discounts to USF students. They have racks of subversive shit all over the place. USF's Theology Dept. Chair is a militant homosexual!
