Skip to comments.News on Fr. Haley and it's sad indeed! (anti-homo whistleblower excommunicated) (Catholic Caucus)

Well, the word coming down from on high is that Fr. Haley has been excommunicated and defrocked. This has been personally confirmed to me by someone who should know, but don't expect to hear about it anywhere official. There's something about this case that makes authorities skittish. After all, we can't acknowledge the elephant in the sanctuary, the homosexual priest problem. Every new homosexual scandal is met by the three monkeys with ears, eyes, and mouth covered. ("Psst...ignore the elephant until he goes away.") So Fr. Haley will continue to be the invisible man.
Strange, isn't it?
The Vatican released a notification over the excommunication of heretic priest Tissa Balasuriya, but Fr. Haley who is guilty of no more than making his bishop upset for revealing too much about the homosexual subculture in Arlington, simply disappeared without a trace. I have the feeling that if he had experienced an open trial we would have heard testimony by at least one chancery official that was perjury from start to finish. In secular court one has the right to be faced with one's accusers, but in Fr. Haley's case, I understand the accusation used to secure his conviction was summarized by the chancery and the "accuser" never appeared. Isn't that hearsay evidence which would not be allowed in a real trial grounded in justice?
But the story gets worse. Fr. Haley was cut off financially by the diocese last summer and now has no income. His situation has deteriorated from living a nomad's existence in a motor home with a small income to living with no income at all except what he can pick up from odd jobs. He needs work.
Before he entered the priesthood, Fr. Haley was an engineer. He is technologically oriented and I understand he's interested in finding a technical type job. If anybody has leads to suggest or a job to offer, please post them in the comments section. And please continue your prayers. Consider how the heretics go on and on. They write books, speak at diocesan functions, thumb their noses at the Church, with nary a cluck to upset their scandal. Fr. Gerard Sloyan, the architect of the disastrous feeling-based catechetics that destroyed the faith of a generation and a promoter of the "fundamental option" heresy, gives courses in Arlington regularly.
Fr. Haley, on the other hand, was crucified for "being a snoop" as one priest said to me. In view of the devastation the homosexual cabal is inflicting on the Church (Check out the war in in Minnesota where the homosexual/pro-homosexual priests are currently fighting their bishop over an amendment on the ballot to protect traditional marriage.), we could use more "snoops" like Fr. Haley.
Pray for Bishop Loverde. He has a lot to answer for. Our God is a God of mercy, but justice is the flip side of the coin. He used his authority to draw and quarter a good priest. A day of accounting is on the calendar.
What kind of engineer? Does he have a masters’ degree?
Yet all the pro-homo and abortion legislating Catholic politicians are untouchable.

Any citation - or are we simply to take the author’s word for it?
If they are honestly leaving for this reason, they should move to a traditionalist redoubt which does not put up with such nonsense. This is not the Church's doing, but rather it is the work of treasonous office holders.
The blog is a citation. Here is another:
Google is thy friend.
Fr. Haley is a lunatic. He claims that 60% of Arlington priests are homosexuals. The problem with that assertion is that for years prior to Loverde, Arlington was the only diocese in the nation to actively screen out homosexuals. “Good Bye, Good Men” actually singled out the Arlington Diocese for being a “good diocese.” (Unfortunately, Bishop Loverde has reversed this screening out, so I’m not defending him, either.)
According to BishopAccountability’s database, Arlington Diocese has been involved in NO lawsuits for any homosexual abuse by its priests. (An Oblates priest residing in the diocese was sued, but was not diocesan; three priests were accused on improper heterosexual relationships; one priest was arrested for possession of child pornography.)
Lousy research by the author you cite.
Arlington is not a suffragan diocese to Washington, where Cardinal McCarrick was archbishop. (McCarrick definitely *is* one of the bad guys.) Despite teh Archdiocese of Washington being directly between Arlington and Baltimore, Arlington belongs to the Archdiocese of Baltimore. When the Washington Archdiocese was created, it was carved out of the Baltimroe Metropolitan, and the Virginia dioceses remained with Baltimore.
“Fr. Haley is a lunatic.”
Back up or withdraw your detraction. You cite Good Bye, Good Men by Michael Rose, but this author is on record defending your “lunatic” Fr. Haley:
Fr. Haley was called as a witness to make a legal deposition. Here is a PDF of the legal deposition that brought the the hammer of Loverde:
Unless you can find a lie in this deposition, you owe Fr. Haley an apology. Perhaps you would have prefer that Fr. Haley lie in his deposition.
Please cite where Fr. Haley was convicted of betraying the privacy of confession or withdraw your nonsense.
Making a general observation gleaned from the confessional about the prevalence of a certain sin in a way that does not expose anyone is permitted.
I am rescinding that last comment about repeating what he heard in confessionals. I may be drawing a false inference.
Sorry, FRiend, but Abbott does not do his own research or, for that matter, much of his own writing. He merely cites and retales what others say. His article is as trustworthy or untrustworthy as the authorities he quotes.
I have no idea whether Fr. Haley is a martyr or a lunatic. But citing to RenewAmerica is a half-notch, at best, above the National Enquirer. The site exercises zero editorial control.
As you can see, I was in the process of withdrawing it before your comments.
In fact, I never said he was convicted of it. What he appears to have tipped off to the press and what he heard in the confessional appear to be separate scandals.
I’m not sure how the New Oxford Review attaches Fr. Haley to what Michael Rose says in that article, but the (apparently reprinted) article is about James Gould, not Father Haley, and in it, Michael Rose reaffirms the excellent condition of Arlington Diocese under Bishop Keating, and the work for James Gould to prevent homosexual infiltration.
I am glad you presented the deposition; I am very curious whether the problem is that Haley made many assertions about other priests that were far beyond what he was depositioned to answer... but I have to leave for now.
The citations in post 12 are more substantial.
