Disgraced ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick allegedly ran a sex ring out of his New jersey beach house – where one victim claims he was molested by him and three other priests, according to a new lawsuit.
The victim – “Doe 14”- says the alleged abuse began when he was 14 during overnight stays at McCarrick’s Sea Girt home in 1982.
“In the night, with the assistance of others, McCarrick would creep into this kid’s bed and engage in criminal sexual assault of him, whispering, “It is OK,” Jeff Anderson, the attorney for the now-53 year-old-victim, said at a virtual press conference Wednesday.
Other priests allegedly served as part of a “crew” of procurers of young boys for then-Bishop McCarrick, who “assigned sleeping arrangements, choosing his victims from the boys, seminarians and clerics present at the beach house,” the suit says.
Some of the other boys who were allegedly brought to McCarrick’s home were “assigned to different rooms and paired with adult clerics,” according to the complaint.
The victim claims he was also abused at the beach house by priests Gerald Ruane, Michael Walters and John Laferrere. The three men were among a list of 188 clergy members in New Jersey accused of sexual misconduct, N.J.com reported. Ruane is dead, while the other two men were listed as “permanently removed from ministry.”
The suit was filed Tuesday night in New Jersey superior Court in Middlesex County against the Diocese of Metuchen, the Archdiocese of Newark – where McCarrick served as bishop and archbishop respectively – and several New Jersey schools the victim attended.
The victim is described as having been raised in a devout Roman Catholic family and he was a former student at St. francis Xavier in Newark and Essex Catholic in East Orange.
He also claims he was sexually abused as an 11 year – old altar boy at St. Francis Xavier by the Rev. Anthony Nardino, who was employed at the school, and later molested by Brother Andrew Thomas Hewitt at Essex Catholic, where he was the Principal.
Hewitt died in 2002, according to an online obituary. Nardino, who has not been publicly accused before, has left the ministry, according to N.J.com
Anderson said “decades of alleged sexual abuse have been covered up by the Catholic Church.
“All of it cloaked in papal power,” he said.
Sexual abuse allegations against McCarrick have been leveled before, including by James Grein, the first child he baptized. Grein said McCarrick – known as UncleTed – began molesting him at age 11.
The archdiocese of Newark didn’t immediately comment.
Its spokeswoman, Maria Margiotta, told N.J.come, “It would be inappropriate to discuss or comment on matters in litigation. The archdiocese of Newark remains fully committed to transparency and to our long-standing programs to protect the faithful and will ccontinue to work with victims, their legal representatives and law enforcement authorities in ongoing effort to resolve allegations andbring closure to victims.”
McCarrick’s lawyer didn’t immediately return a message.
Anthony Kearns, spokesperson and chancellor for the Diocese of Metuchen, said the diocese was” committed to preventing future sexual abuse.
While we have not yet received the complaint, our prayers are with all survivors of abuse, today and always,, and we stand with them in their journey toward healing and hope” he said. “With god’s grace, all survivors of abuse, particularly those wounded by members of the Church, will continue to heal and move forward.”
“While the world is combating the new coronavirus, COVID-19, China continues to fortify its islands in the South China Sea, with only muted response from the international community. Even the sinking of a Vietnamese fishing vessel brought minimal reaction from the international community, through the Philippines (https://asia.nikkei.com/Politics/International-relations/Philippines-sides-with-Vietnam-after-China-sinks-fishing-boat)and U.S. military have made statements against the incident.
Prior to COVID19, China’s “War Without Gunsmoke strategy had already (https://www.usni.org/press/books/chinas-maritime–gray-zone-operations resulted in the near-normalization of its South china Sea military buildup and its “nine dash line” claims. Since 2013 the “Great Wall of Sand” (so dubbed by former Pacific Fleet Commander Adm. Harry Harris) has become even more formidable. Combined with Chinese disregard for a 2016 Hague ruling that invalidated Chinese nine-dash-line claims, it is obvious that China will continue to persist in its claims, as I detailed in a 2017 article for Foreign Policy https://foreignpolicy.com/2017/06/29/could-the-chinese-communist-party-survive-dropping-south-china-sea-claims/
Despite this, the United States, the United Nations and the Association of Southeast Nations states can make headway by quickly acting in concert to prevent further garrisoning of the islands claimed by China in the South China Sea.
The islands afford China bases from which it can intimidate ASEAN states: (Association of South East Asian Nations, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam) into abandoning their claims or acquiescing to China’s demands. China’s paramilitary forces and fishing vessels use the island bases as hubs from which to harass and even sink commercial ships from ASEAN countries. A coordinated, international response is necessary to curtail the success of China’s Monroe-esque Doctrine throughout Asia. (Monroe Doctrine warned European nations that the U.S. would not tolerate puppet regimes 1823)
The UN has a vital role to play in ensuring that China adheres to international law and respects the sovereignty of other member states. Any country that does not uphold the law or support the international system should be pressured to do so by the UnN. , lest its rulings become irrelevant”
It would be difficult to bring cohesion to the above looming assaults on South Asian states by China on this day of July 18, 2020 as the world contends with the Chinese Communist Party Virus Covid-19. This is the name which China approved of and so we use it. The entire world has been infected by something from atheist Communist China.

Plymouth – A downtown business owner is suing Gov. Charlie Baker for requiring that she and her workers and customers wear masks. She alleges the requirement is unconstitutional
In her complaint, filed with the U.S. District Court June 12, Noreen Bachade, who owns Healthy Vibes at 21 Court St., claims that Baker’s executive order requiring the wearing of masks violates her civil rights. According to the complaint, she is seeking damages, including lawyer’s fees, court costs and any other damages the court thinks appropriate.
Massachusetts Department of Public Health Commissioner Dr. Monica Bharel and Massachusetts Department of Labor Standards Director Bill McKinney are also named in the suit.
On May 1, the Baker-Polito Administration ordered all residents older than 2 years old to use a face covering or mask in public places where maintaining proper social distancing measures to prevent the spread of COVID19 are not possible. This statewide order went into effect May 6 and applies to those working in businesses and those entering them like customers. Violators face $300.oo fines.
Bachade charges that the governor’s mask mandates violate her constitutional rights to privacy and free speech because it prohibits facial expression, a strong conveyor of communication. She also states that the mandate violates her constitutional rightsto make her own personal medical decisions and violates Massachusetts police power and the Massachusetts Declaration of Rights.
Bachade explained why she is taking legal action.
“Since the COVID 19 pandemic has begun, the government has taken some measures that were helpful in protecting the people, and other measures that were not helpful in protecting the people.
Many of the measures that were not helpful (in protecting the people) violated our unalienable rights, as found in the Constitution,” she wrote in a statement late last week.”
“When it comes to the subject of masks and whether they actually protect other peoples’ health, the government and the experts have been contradictory -numerous examples of which are explicitly noted in our complaint.
In our opinion, these contradictions show how the mask mandates are arbitrary rules that do not actually keep anyone safer from COVID 19.”
The complaint specifically takes issue with a number of apparent contradictions in the CDC’s guidelines, first warning people against wearing masks, then issuing guidelines to wear them.
Bachade compares COVID 19 deaths in the United States with other illnesses, such as heart disease and cancer, and concludes that the governor’s assertion that the disaster reaches the level of “unprecedented size and destructiveness” is false. Bachade notes that in 2017 heart disease killed 65,000 Americans, while COVID has killed 115,000 as of the complaint’s date. (The number is 131,413 as of July 2). The complaint further states that COVID 19 has impacted a tenth of a percent of the population of Massachusetts.
“There is a constitutional problem when the government imposes arbitrary rules that infringe freedom of choice.” Bachade writes in her statement. “If the government and the experts are permitted to contradict each other, then there is no lesser good in permitting people and private businesses to choose whether to wear masks, or enforce their own private policies. During this pandemic, I was fortunate enough to have had my business deemed an ‘essential business.’ My philosophy is: “From whom much is given, much is expected.’ Preserving constitutional rights for everyone – including those who might disagree with me – is my way of giving back to my community.”

This little ‘cloth medal’ was given to Sister Justine Bisqueyburu (1817-1903) ten years after the apparitions of St. Catherine Laboure received the Miraculous Medal as a precious gift for the Church to give to anyone who would like to save the soul of their loved one. Miraculous cures have been attributed to it also. Spectacular cures!
I am compelled to write about this! It was an integral part of our nurses training. I was educated by the same order of nuns to which both Sister Justine and Sister Catherine belonged. Sisters of Charity of St. Vincent De Paul. Our nursing nuns wore the same habit. Almost. Our teaching nuns wore the winged bonnet called…

Cardinal Vidal, in a 2014 letter to the Catholic Bishops of the Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) said one of the”secrets” of the alleged Lipa apparition as revealed to Carmelite nun Teresita Castillo was the invasion of the Philippines and the world by China.
“Pray hard for China’s dream is to invade the whole world” Vidal quoted from the notes of Castillo on the alleged apparition at the Carmelite convent in Lipa City in 1948, a year before the Communist triumph in China and Communist leader Mao Tse-tung’s official proclamation of the Peoples Republic of China.

“Julia Greeley, Denver’s Angel of Charity, was born into slavery at Hannibal, Missouri, sometime between 1833 and 1848. While she was still a young child, a cruel slave master, in the course of beating her mother, caught Julia’s right eye with his whip and destroyed it.” This photo of Julia Greeley is the only known one in existence.
This monstrous cruelty of the ‘slave master’ provides basis for the racism of our day. No doubt.
But … any one of us is capable of evil due to the ravages created in the soul of man by original sin.
There is a cure. It is in turning to God for help. Julia Greeley turned to the Sacred Heart of Jesus where she found love which consumed the lonesomeness, the sorrow, the despair … which had swept over her being at times.
