142: Covering Catholic Corruption—George Neumayr
Very few journalists who are practicing Catholics are willing to honestly tackle the corruption in the Church by naming names, digging until the truth is unearthed, confronting bad guys, making antagonists squirm.
This is what George Neumayr does, chiefly as a correspondent for The American Spectator, but elsewhere as a freelancer. He has gone after the DC Swamp (Catholic Edition) for some years now, telling the true, often horrifying, story of malfeasance and other forms of corruption (sexual and financial) among priests and prelates in what he describes as the epicenter of the priestly abuse scandal that first broke nationally in Boston 2002, with ongoing tremors to this day.
Neumayr is doing what the official Catholic establishment media won’t do. His work is a testament to the power one man can have when writing the truth.
In this episode you will learn
- The history of the DC local Church and why its leadership has been problematic for the last generation
- Why so many bishops seem allergic to describing the crisis as having anything to do with active homosexuality
- The backstory of Mons. Walter Rossi, rector of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, and why his tenure as a public figure may be coming to an end
- How all of this tolerance for evil and theological anarchy is rooted in the Peronism of Pope Francis
- Why the mission of Catholic journalists is to do their jobs, including uncovered uncomfortable facts about things like predator prelates and those who run interference for them
- The phenomenon of messenger shooting and why it keeps the status quo going

How can Catholics get over their fear of describing the crisis accurately, and of reclaiming their Church?
