Bishop Michael Bransfield of the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston (WV) is no longer the prelate of that diocese. He is currently under investigation for alleged homosexual predation on young men. He is 75 years old anyway and accordingly had to submit his resignation. This diocese is a suffragan of the Archdiocese of Baltimore. Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore is leading the investigation into the Bransfield allegations. He will also serve as apostolic administrator of Wheeling-Charleston until the pope appoints a new bishop.
This is another case of the fox guarding the hen house. Church Militant articulated their own concerns about this development. In addition, I have written quite a bit about the homosexual infiltration that has been allowed to fester within the Archdiocese of Baltimore. Much of my writing has been focused on St Matthew's on Loch Raven Boulevard. Its pastor, Father Joseph Muth, has been defiant in his promotion of the mortal sin of sodomy, going so far as to lead his parish as they march in Baltimore's "gay pride" parade year after year. Over the years I and others have written to Lori to ask him to replace Muth, as he is leading many in this parish to hell. A friend pointed out to me that in addition to St Matthew's, Muth is now scandalizing the parishioners of Blessed Sacrament on Old York Road as well. That is a recent assignment and had to be Lori's doing.
Lori is probably yet another prelate who should be thinking of early retirement. He is not qualified, by dint of his own facilitation of gays in Baltimore, to be investigating anybody.
