Thugs At The Shrine

No, I do not refer to criminals lurking outside the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.  I refer to those employed by the Shrine.

First, I will relate a story to put this in context.  About 20 years ago, I visited the Shrine on a monthly basis (approximately) to go to Confession and peruse the book store.  At that time, the security staff was comprised of older, even elderly, men who quite frankly would never have been able to handle a real security emergency.  On one visit, I was strolling through the cafeteria and for some reason that I cannot fathom, I attracted the attention of a man who was obviously mentally imbalanced.  He followed me and demanded that I wait at his beck and call.  I loudly demanded that he back off and walked into a women's rest room.  I waited, hoping he'd loose interest and go away.  He didn't.  When I emerged, he started right back up and again I had to yell at him to back off and don't dare follow me.  Again, this was in the cafeteria.  There were at least three of the less-than-intrepid security staff sitting by, watching the entire confrontation - and making not one damned move to assist me.  He didn't follow me and I left.  Needless to say, my visits to the Shrine were greatly reduced after that.

Fast forward to today.  We now have a rogue security staff, directed by a gay-mafia Msgr Walter Rossi ejecting George Neumayr for asking questions.  They even lied about having a legal order to eject Neumayr from Shrine property.

In the course of researching his treatment at the hands of Shrine staff, he learned that a key security staffer at the Shrine has an actual crime history replete with violent crimes.  Rossi may well be covering for this fellow owing to a past friendship with his father.  But what the heck?  Covering up the crimes of each other seems to be a favorite course of action for this local gay-mafia that infects this Shrine and Archdiocese.

Now I wonder how my encounter of 20 years ago would have been resolved had this criminal been in charge of Shrine security at that time?  There probably would have been no difference.


  1. Thugs at the Shrine, and jerks at the Chancellory! What a pathetic Archdiocese!

  2. Carry on with this harsh agenda against Msgr Rossi and the Shrine then, awful blog

    1. Mr. Callaghan, I gather that you live in England and thus have no real familiarity with the situation in the archdiocese as do I. Might I suggest that you do some research before continuing to make a fool of yourself?
