There is something terribly wrong with a seminary who couldn't see a problem with this sick individual.
Where did he think he was going to store the baby at the seminary?
How could his twisted mind escape the scrutiny of sharp staff and peers at Franciscan University?
Screwball is written all over him. There had to be red flags in his relationships.

Yes. The current Pope. So the Vatican is behind this research and has no problem based on the idea is to help humankind. And in theory all that we will be doing is killing pigs.
Sometimes I will read stories about people claiming Pope Francis did or said something and think there may be some embellishment going on or omission of facts.
So when a friend of mine sent me this story with the question "Could this be true?!", my immediate thought was "Blessing a project trying to create people pigs with stem cells and embryos is so demonic, I don't see how it could be!".
I won't say I didn't google it while muttering "Dear God, I hope not!!!"
If the Holy Father contradicted Church teaching on embryonic stem cell research and took a position that scientists can now ethically engage in work injecting them into animals to experiment with prototypes of what can come out as human - one would think that would be blockbusting theological news. I only found the original article and one blog who picked up on it.
Here's another glaringly-false assertion:
While the Catholic Church has opposed research on human embryos, it endorses evolution and generally takes a liberal view on scientific matters. In fact, the Vatican’s position on “human-animal chimeras,” as the mixtures are known, may be more liberal than that of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, which in September instituted a ban on funding chimera research until it can weigh ethical questions associated with it.
Catholic Church teaching positively does NOT concur with scientific moonbattery involving human life and natural and Divine law. There is 2000 years of theology that condemns unethical and immoral activities as, among other things, divination and murder.
Here's a statement Pope Francis made in 2014 condemning scientists playing with life.
There is plenty of material we can substantiate that raise concerns about the Holy Father's trajectory. I would not get flustered about people pulling things out of their pocket in an audience and independent people claiming the Pope contradicted Divine, moral, natural law with the nudge and wink.
A bit of a strange twist to the expected pulling of the rug from under the fraud 'seers' at Medjugorje.
The Archbishop of Sarajevo is lobbying the money-making circus be allowed to continue pick-pocketing naive Catholics.
He's hoping the ancient Roman practice of nonfeasance will allow the heretical circus to continue drawing wallets into the area.
Even Pope Francis can smell the rat, but the Archbishop of Sarajevo is not 'worried' about his attitude or the CDFs attitude.
"The Church does not hurry, but always arrives at a conclusion. I'm not worried about the attitude of the Holy Father or those of the CDF. "
I don't think the inaction has anything at all to do with delays in drawing a conclusions. Even a moron knows that the Blessed Mother is incapable of heresies, lies and contradicting the Magisterium of her Son's Church.
I've spoken about my own curiosity and reasons for my own ultimate conclusion on Medjugorje but they are worth briefly mentioning again.
I initially believed it was real until one of the seers who lived in the North End of Boston booked a parish hall with a parish secretary to receive the messages at 5pm. A few local friends had invited me to check it out with them and we made plans. When the priest got wind of it, he cancelled it because there is a regularly-scheduled Mass going on upstairs at that time and he would not permit any other event to happen during that time.
The priest's decision was sound judgment to me. I assumed everyone would agree and the seer would book it somewhere else. But people were very upset with the priest and for the first time, my BS detector went up as I found this to be inconsistent with the fruit of truth. Attendees received a message from the seer asking people to sit tight because the Blessed Mother had agreed to change to a later time and they were asking the priest for permission to proceed at 7pm.
The Blessed Mother would not have scheduled a competing event downstairs from a Sacred Liturgy to begin with, so the idea that she did not know, would cause angst against one of her priests and then needed a human to fix her blunders was nonsense.
The priest, who had been open to this apparition, backed off. Devotees surrounded this faithful priest's wagons and spewed venom at him and everyone who smelled something stinky.
I know Our Lady quite well. Childless after 8 years, my parents did the Novena to the Immaculate Conception and a year later, I was born on December 8th - the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. She has been present in my life even when I wandered from Christ. This just wasn't consistent with the fruit of her womb.
I observed the phenomenon for a few years following this event. I knew many of the devotees. All of us were no stranger to the buffoonery of luminaries in the Chancery and non-believing bishops. We worked on many projects in the past and knowing the victories of the devil in Boston, I knew we would work on projects in the future--so I kept quiet about my thoughts on Medjugorje (which was not always easy!).
A pattern began to emerge after several years of observation. When a priest would obstruct or sabotage Adoration, Rosary, Church teaching or blatantly teach heresy, everyone productively worked together to hammer away at it. Yet, in spite of many years of faithful teaching, demonstrating our love and practice of the Sacraments and love for the Eucharist, venerating Mary and spreading word about the power of her protection and intervention -- if devotees of Medjugorje got wind that someone was a skeptic, there was a fatwa against that person and their family.
There is a overwhelming inability of devotees to pursue and admit truth.
For instance, I've heard a multitude of stories from devotees about people who hopped on a plane to Bosnia and had a conversion and this then proves the seers are authentic. But when you explain that a person who hops on a plane to go to Bosnia has already been groomed by Our Lady and converted, they are just sealing their relationship with Sacraments and prayer in a retreat, there is an unwillingness to admit to sufficient facts.
It's a third-world, war-torn country, halfway around the world. It costs a lot of money to go there. It is saturated with people who are devoted to Christ's Church and the Ark of the Covenant. The itinerary is filled with Sacraments and prayer.
A person who books a flight to Medjugorje wants to get something different out of their vacation than a person hopping on the plane to Turks and Caicos. A person going to Turks and Caicos plans snorkeling and windsurfing and laying on the beach with a tropical drink.
A person going on a religious pilgrimage is seeking an encounter with Christ and His Mother, the angels and saints - and they are going to get it. They would get it if they planned an hour at the local parish to sit in front of the Blessed Sacrament every day for a month.
Yet, devotees of Medjugorje tell the conversion stories as if they kidnapped and shackled a reprobate and took them to the seer and they were miraculously converted.
When you discuss the defrocked priest who knocked up a nun, the lack of vocations of the seers with the same people who have the vapors when Pope Francis propagates some of the same disturbing heresies, they refuse to admit there is a problem with the seers.
You can't seem to scratch the surface of this deception and I never trust anything that evades truth.
Why would this bishop portray the situation as if the Holy See has signaled this is on course to be found angelic and should therefore not be disturbed?
It is absolutely not the case and everyone knows it.
Another liar that is flocked around this phenomenon.
Bishop John Doerfler of Marquette, Michigan, has issued directions for all parishes in the diocese to institute programs that will lead to the congregation chanting the Ordinary parts of the Mass.
Following up on the work of his predecessor in Marquette, then-Bishop Alexander Sample (who is now Archbishop of Portland, Oregon), Bishop Doerfler has called for the action to carry out the vision of Vatican II, which encouraged the use of Gregorian chant and congregational involvement in the singing.
He's a sly dog that one!

One reliably informed source, a recognized moral theologian who has seen the draft, said he was "deeply disturbed" by the text as it “calls into question the natural moral law”.
Stampeding towards anathema.
[Abp. Paglia] said the much-anticipated document, which summarizes the Pope’s conclusions of the two synods dedicated to the family, will be “a hymn to love, a love that wants to take care of the welfare of the young, to be close to wounded families to give them strength, a love that wants to be close to children as well as to all mankind in need. "
He is not talking about families wounded by his apostate priests and bishops. He is not referring to the welfare of their victims. He's going to leave all that in place to continue luring a multitude of children into its lethal course.
Something I keep coming back to: The devil is in the details.
I don't think this is a coincidence:
An incredible cloud formation which appeared over the skies of Portugal has been dubbed the 'hand of God'.
The cloud took the form of a fist from Heaven with a hand holding a fireball as it dominated the skyline across the island of Madeira on Monday.
Reason 1,999,999 why we don't give pearls to the swine.
'I'm not that superstitious, it's not like I think necessarily I have to have them on me at all times, but it does remind me of all the other different people I've met along the way and how much they've invested in me.
'If I feel tired or I feel discouraged sometimes then I can reach into my pocket and say "that's something I can overcome because somebody gave me this privilege to work on these issues that affect them. I better get back to work."'
When he's feeling glum, he reaches for the rosary beads to remind him how important he is and how much the Holy Father needs him to continue on with his work on the destruction of human life, the country and conscience protections of practicing Catholics who could never follow his orders to rob the village idiots of their salvation.
Some days he reaches for the monkeygod.
That's his wife's job.
Reducing the mysteries of Christ's Incarnation, three years of ministry, Salvific Death and Resurrection to a symbol of Obama's self-importance didn't do him a bit of good.

I'm sure you've all read the news that Pope Francis is going to celebrate the most famous heretic leading millions from Christ's Church and the Sacraments.
Perhaps any day now we'll be reading about how Pope Francis will concelebrate a Latin Mass with Bishop Fellay to commemorate when he fled Mapplethorpe?
Mikey says it better than I can.

Our friends at the Eye-Witness have picked up on a story I somehow missed in December.
When Jews and Christians make a joint contribution through concrete humanitarian aid for justice and peace in the world, they bear witness to the loving care of God. No longer in confrontational opposition but cooperating side by side, Jews and Christians should seek to strive for a better world
That is some twisted creepy puzzle.
Here are a few more teasers...
In reading, among other, things the Vatican Commission’s report of sunny humanitarian relations between Jews and Christians, we found it all rather bewildering, to say the least. Bewilderment, we dare say, is in fact a common (perhaps intended) affliction resulting from reading many diffusively murky, but warm and fuzzy publishings from the Vatican in these times. It’s a pattern exactly contrary to the strong, clear, precise moral guidance the world was ever accustomed to receive from Rome – until the years that prefaced the Second Vatican Council....
When the Vatican Commission says Jews and Christians are “no longer in confrontational opposition but cooperating side by side” for world justice and peace, its blurred generalities tell more about what’s being hidden than revealed. Of whom is the Commission speaking? It’s left to the Statement’s reading audience to decide who was in confrontational opposition to whom.
“the relevance of revelation,
The relationship between the universality of salvation in Jesus Christ and the affirmation that the covenant of God with Israel has never been revoked, and the Church’s mandate to evangelize in relation to Judaism.”
Read the rest of this outstanding expose on the insidious abandonment of the mission of the salvation of souls at The Eye-Witness.
Something fun to look forward to: In a few short months, Barack Hussein and Michelle will be vacating our White House. Worth a vacation day to watch on television! I might gather a few friends for a goodbye Barack Hussein luncheon.
January 20, 2017 would be a day to organize a massive exorcism of the entire city. The priests have let the demons infest the world without restraint. I honestly think this is a major problem nobody speaks about. Every time Christ and the Apostles walked through a town, they focused on diagnosing the source of trouble and casting out demons was part of their daily routine.
I remember once in my naive days meeting with a bishop who I didn't know that well but thought was on the ball. I really don't remember the content (who could keep track!) but whatever it was, it was so completely nuts I knew it was not of human origin.
We met, I got right down to the wide-spread involvement of nuttiness. He was engaged, agreed something was rotten. I causally mentioned that I thought (knew would be a more accurate word for it) was not of human origin. I mentioned a few other things going on in the archidoicese and asked him why the diocese had not replaced the diocesan exorcist who had retired several years back. Said this doesn't seem like the time to be slacking on that front. Cleaning the locus of this city is a full-time job.
I saw the look on his face and thought to myself Whooooaaaaah baby! This guy is not a believer! I was shocked. Stopped my train of thought dead in its tracks for questions that went through my mind. Don't they teach them about this stuff in the seminary? They make people bishops who are this out of touch with the spiritual world? How could he get this far in his vocation completely unaware of the existence of this world and the burdens on the shoulders of his people he has the power to dispel and cure? It was like being hit by a truck. LOL. I had to pull myself together to wrap up the meeting and get out of Dodge.
Two steps from his front door, I dialed a priest adviser and relayed the story to him, asking him the questions going through my mind. He expressed his surprise that this particular bishop was clueless but then dropped the other shoe. He told me this was the case with most bishops and part of the reason why the Church and world was in such a mess.
Readers will not be surprised that experience put me on the kick to ask that Boston get the exorcist replaced. I reached out to every priest and bishop in the US I knew and asked them to help to reach out to their contacts in Rome. I reached out to a few contactsI had in Rome. I sent a nastygram to US Nuncio basically saying Boston has been without an exorcist for a few years, we are infested, you people have got to be kidding me, send help and do not send a kid, a moron or non-believer!
About a year later, a few priests in Boston told me one was in place and the person was well-qualified.
Wouldn't it be productive to fly about ten of them into DC on January 20th with 50 gallons of holy water and salt?
A woman can dream!
I haven't really paid much attention to the political pundits but note there were a few noteworthy things this week.
I found the brouhaha on NRO (National Review Online) positively fascinating. NRO has never struck the right chord for me. It's always come across to me to be a group desperate to be loved by the GOP establishment, selling their talking points in spite of the stupidity. I haven't followed this week's controversy closely, but I guess they organized a fatwa on Trump that backfired on them.
Their own readers are cancelling subscriptions - and here comes a shocker - the GOP has removed them as co-hosts of the GOP debate.
This is a huge deal. The NRO folks LIVED to be invited to swanky GOP events and be popular celebrities at the Dubliner. When they are in a room, the stink of self-importance emanating from their pores evaporates oxygen.
Most Catholic conservatives I know are not thrilled by the surge of the Donald, but every time Obama-backed rebels pulls a stunt and he articulates what we are thinking in the public square, more and more people are convinced he might be exactly the right dose of medicine the village idiots in this country need at this time in our history. The resistance Romney received is simply not present in anyone I have encountered. With every politically incorrect utterance, Trump gains traction among politically-conservative Catholics. Truth be told, it's surprised me. Given Trump's past history, I'm stunned.
I know a lot of politically-conservative Catholics. About 50% of them are behind Cruz. All have expressed that they will vote for Trump if he's the nominee. About 45% are directly supporting Trump and 5% are supporting other candidates, mostly Rubio. I personally wish Huckabee had more wind behind him.
Trump is playing on emotions of people who feel Obama has empowered ISIS around the world and in our own country and our survival is at stake. Playing emotions of frustrated Americans is exactly what the democrats did when they packaged Obama. Trump was smart enough to know the audience and he's done better than anyone expected.
What is even more surprising is the GOP seems to have their finger on the pulse of the largest base of voters and cut the cord to NRO. They historically have been marketing candidates to appease older wealthy tycoons.
I also found Sarah Palin's support of Trump fascinating. Sarah is no fan of the GOP establishment (and rightly so), but Trump does not strike me as her kind of candidate.
The press couldn't wait to return to the glory days of trashing Palin. After eight years of the stink of Obama, I don't think that's going to work for them but time will tell.
Palin and Trump would be an interesting pair, wouldn't it? Trump seemed to be exploring Scott Brown who is a proabort. Picking a proabort would send his campaign into a tailspin.
I like the idea of goodbye Barack parties. Morning Mass, a nice lunch while we watch them board the plane, some Adoration in the afternoon, maybe even a wine toast with dinner. I can't wait!
Update -- Just found this relevant piece from Douthat. I'm not sure I agree with Ross about Romney's demise, though I don't think his wealth helped him, Romney tanked because prolife Massachusetts Catholics had the goods on how Romney threw us under the bus. Prochoice, pro-socialized medicine, and anti-conscience rights. When we educated conservative wealthy Catholics and showed them the evidence, they withdrew their support and all they had left were political hacks who acted like asses as they were circling the drain.
Prolife Catholics have long memories and a significant voter block.
