Deranged Bishop Attacks Whistleblower Priest

Edit:  Bishop Michael Olson, who is now trying to destroy a priest who called out one of his friends has been assigned to St. Luke’s. He’s suing for defamation. This is the same Bishop who helped Taylor Marshall destroy Fisher More College.






FORT WORTH, Texas (ChurchMilitant.com) - Disturbing details have emerged about Bp. Michael Olson of Fort Worth, Texas, revealing what appears to be a dark side.
Church Militant obtained 1,800 pages of court documents in a defamation lawsuit filed by Fr. Richard Kirkham, a Fort Worth priest, against Olson. In the file is a deposition of one Diane Cluley, a 90-year-old woman who has been described as Olson's "surrogate mother," who took Olson under her wing when he was a young seminarian.

Testimony of Diane Cluley

According to Cluley, Olson came from a troubled background, with difficult relations with his parents, exhibiting a great deal of insecurity and issues with self-esteem. In her effort to help him, she welcomed Olson into her home, allowing him to form close bonds with her sons. Olson was a frequent dinner guest, staying late into the night and spending a great deal of time with the family.

This is typical back stabbing gay behavior. Why do people beat up on Michael Voris for never apologizing to trads for calling them Spiritual Pornagraphers when this limp wristed self promoter makes insincere apologies?

Stay away!

I went to the Fort Worth FSSP parish and apparently the parishioners there respect the bishop. I was told that a homosexual priest (or many) are trying to defame the bishop because he has not been completely soft on fags. One of the ushers - the unmarried 40 year old in information technology or economics - told me this.

The surrogate mother put her finger on the problem, it was like there was someone else in him.... it happened after he became a bishop....

Was he inducted into a Satanic cult? by Bergoglio. Olsons episcopal lineage goes back to Cardinal Villot who was suspected in poisoning John Paul I and who ordered the body cremated before the other Cardinals could get an autopsy done by an independent man.

John Paul l wasn’t cremated he was embalmed quickly though

The screenshots provided don't support the claim that Taylor Marshall, who I have no affinity for, and Bishop Olson, who I also do not respect, are the reasons for FMC's closure. They actually posit plausible reasons for its closure.

Anony 12:32......agreed.

FMC imploded on its own ideological time bomb. It was non-viable.

Ideological time bomb? Is that a code word for uncompromisingly Catholic?

Tancred said...

He provided this bishop with ammunition. Marshall is a despicable informant.

(1) "I went to the Fort Worth FSSP parish and apparently the parishioners there respect the bishop."

--Apparently they "respect" Francis and all the VC2 popes just like their FSSP priests do, i.e. they are in communion with them/claim to profess the same faith. You people strain out a gnat while swallowing the camel.

(2) Plausible reasons @12:32 and Dad39: Is it your opinion that a Catholic College should be closed for teaching that VC2 is an heretical council and offering the pre-VC2 Catholic mass exclusively? If so, why don't you declare yourselves outright? Those who say they are pro-choice are pro-abortion. Like pro-aborts, Taylor Marshall did his best to stamp out FMC and I would posit he was only sent by his opus devil 'life plan coach' to stamp it out.

The CIA/FBI have their way of gaining people's confidence: the bump ('accidental' meeting)*/the vouch (get someone you already know/trust to introduce you)--I would surely like to know how Marshall got hired. After Marshall's piece came out, a former FMC board member wrote a response which John Vennari published which has been wiped from the internet, the gist of which was that TM demanded a six figure salary ($300k as I remember). He did absolutely nothing for this salary. When FMC board decided could no longer afford him, he wanted a golden parachute and sent threatening emails/texts. That's a hireling--not a Catholic sacrificing himself to bring Catholic education to youth. Pocketing over a quarter million of FMC's tight budget while accusing the founder of malfeasance--well, no wonder escriva calls his devil spawn rogues, scoundrels and bandits.**

"Desire to please authority figures turned into trying to trip a fellow student on the stairs in order to “meet him” and thereby invite him to an Opus Dei event"

**“In dealing with his children he acted with complete trust and naturalness, with the naturalness of a father and a friend. He would address them affectionately as rogues, scoundrels, bandits, rascals, tugging at the depths of their hearts.”

“Dear Quinito, May Jesus safeguard you for ME. Who love you more, you bandit, than the Father? On this earth no one. Is that clear?”

“Dear Michael, May Jesus safeguard you for ME. I called you a scoundrel in my last letter. But I didn’t go far enough, you boozer. Here’s to sherry! Now seriously—let them take care of you, that way you’ll get well sooner.”

Anon. 11:28, here is the difference. You conveniently claim that your assertions are wiped from the internet, which is not possible due to archiving and caches,to bolster your argument. I, on the other hand, stated the images that actually exist, as seen above, counter the author's claims. Furthermore, it seems that the landlord sued the College for not paying rent. Sounds like they had some financial difficulties. Weird.

I’ve seen things “wiped” from the internet I can’t even find on the way back machine, so what you’re saying is manifestly untrue.

I can’t imagine why they would have financial problems after a lowlife like Taylor Marshall would publish various claims about them and engage the local ordinary to remove his endorsement of the place.

Well, here's some of it (from the comments section -but note from the blog text: "Other people are hinting darkly that things aren't right at the college and the president anyway and that the Fr. Gruner and Vennari episodes were just the straw on top of the ton on the camel's back" (both now dead like FMC):

"Bringing in Dr. Marshall as Dean in January 2012 was risky, as the ink wasn’t dry on his Ph.D., he was a recent convert to Catholicism, and his attachment to tradition was even more recent. But we didn’t have a lot of options, or a lot of time, and Dr. Marshall was highly recommended by a traditional priest who was an erstwhile friend of the College. Well, Dr. Marshall was a popular teacher in his two or three classes each semester (as was his predecessor), but he largely neglected the mundane administrative tasks he was supposed to be performing in the other 30 + hours of the work week, instead devoting his time to self-publishing non-academic books and to becoming a celebrity blogger. Michael and the Visitors who were seriously engaged with the College weren’t entirely happy, but we thought that after the Schutzmann debacle, we needed to tolerate and try to redirect it for the sake of continuity, and for the promise we thought Dr. Marshall held as a fundraiser. We obviously put too much value on continuity and misjudged his willingness to help with fundraising.

The Promotion of Taylor Marshall. After his first semester—I don’t have the precise date in my head, but it was in the summer of 2012—the Dr. Marshall told us he had a better job offer in Montana or Wyoming or somewhere like that, and he threatened to break his contract just before the beginning of the Fall 2012 semester. Michael found out what he wanted in order to make him stay. In my gut, I knew giving the title "Chancellor" to a newly minted PhD in his 30s with only one semester under his belt was a bad idea. But again, for the sake of continuity, I worked with Michael to retain him, supporting him to get the title of “Chancellor,” to be relieved of his paperwork duties as Dean, and to pay him a salary substantially higher than any other staff member (including Michael). Mea culpa.

The full account (2 parts) is actually at link below (but here's an excerpt):

The Board took the decision out of Michael’s hands, and I was one of the point men in the discussions at the end of Dr. Marshall’s tenure (it only being fair that I clean up the mess I had helped make). It seemed that Dr. Marshall was trying to get fired so he could play the victim, and it was explicit that he wanted a substantial severance (he asked for full year’s pay) in exchange for his cooperative resignation, but it didn’t work. At one point in my discussions with Dr. Marshall, I floated the idea that the Board should keep him and enforce his contract, but he said he wouldn’t accept that. When we didn’t agree to a big payout, he accused us of doing injustice to him and his family, but of course, he’s the one that chose to disengage himself and finally quit, and it would have been a far graver injustice to divert almost $100,000 that we needed to pay the remaining staff (who would keep working on austerity pay) so that a narcissistic self-promoter didn’t have to give up his expensive tea. We had paid him for a year and a half to blog and self-publish books in neglect of his administrative work, and, and even with what he's been doing since, I’m gratified that (despite our other mistakes) the Board didn’t seriously consider paying him for another year without even the pretense of working for the College whatsoever. To do so would have been an injustice…even if the College could have afforded such a payment.

And I’m also satisfied with the fact that we didn’t give in to blackmail.

Yes, blackmail. Dr. Marshall told Michael that if we paid him that big severance he would say conciliatory things about the College when asked, but if we didn’t, he’d make sure the world knew how wicked we were. It was a dumb move on his part, and what’s even dumber, he left an electronic trail. He texted Michael over the course of three or four days reiterating his ultimatums and threats: messages such as “Your time is running out!” As I mentioned, we told Dr. Marshall that we would not talk about our dissatisfaction with him unless it was necessary to counter trouble he created for the College, and in light of his conduct, we warned him that his attacks on the College—even if we didn’t respond to them—would naturally have a more negative effect on his own cherished reputation as a celebrity blogger than it would on the College’s, or Michael’s, or mine

The trads at FMC didn't need the modernists to do them in. They did it all by themselves and there is heaps more where that came from.

John Seipso: what does this mean/refer to: "and there is heaps more where that came from?"

P.S. I guess you think euthanasia is not murder because the patient only has six more weeks to live (!the expert doctor says so!) and on the death certificate don't enter "murder" as cause of death, but the disease that perhaps would have caused the victim's decease had he not been murdered.

"I guess you think....
Keep 'guessing' because the introduced moralizing about euthanasia is miles from the point I make in the comment.

Seipso: You wrote (1) "they did it all by themselves," and (2) "and there is heaps more where that came from."

(1) is not true--they didn't do it ALL by themselves (BO and TM had their knife in it)
(2) doesn't follow (1) but maybe you mean there are heaps more BO's and TM's to do everything they can to prevent the teaching of the Catholic Faith.

Few took any notice of Reg Garrigou-Lagrange after his pathetic performance over what he mocked as "La nouvelle theologie." If he had put his brains where his hubris and ill formed judgment were, he would have understood that the theologians who were responsible for the painstaking 'Ressourcement' were doing the Church an enormous favor by literally going back to the sources of the Tradition and peeling off the layers of useless theological accretions that had built up around the core over the centuries.

It's a pity so many Trads and Conservatives still cling to his misguided, dismal claims to authentic Catholic thinking.
I understand that Reg died a very miserable, lonely man.

Seipso: "I understand that Reg died a very miserable,lonely man."

And Jesus Christ? And St. Peter and St. Paul? Oh how wise you N.O's are in your own conceit--worldly riches, glory and honor are what Opus Devils crave. Hitler died a very miserable, lonely man. My aunt died in an N.O. lay run catholic nursing home ('cause you know lay hirelings who get paid by medicare are just as 'good'(!opus devil saints!) as religious who volunteer for love of Jesus Christ; families don't have to care for their own anymore on pain of eternal hellfire: it's the duty of the VC2 communist Chinese murderous state)--she had bedsores and unable to move was put down to choke on her own vomit--but where is she now?

Oh how misguided and dismal was the true Catholic faith that spawned religious orders which gave glory to God. How happy we are today that their churches, monasteries, universities, schools, hospitals, orphanages and nursing homes are destroyed and that nothing is left but a bunch of pride-blind, greedy s/h/its and opus devils to tear each other apart as in the last days of Jerusalem and who only unite to destroy Jesus Christ and His disciples.
