This massive piece of research documents how the corruption of the Catholic Church has come about. It helps explain things happening now, such as how Timothy Cardinal Dolan, in an interview with Fr. Benedict Groeschel on defending marriage, could claim that "immigration" is an important "life issue." In this interview, Fr. Benedict mentioned the "natural law," but neither he nor Dolan explained what the natural law is. Then they veered off onto "immigration," the politically correct topic. Dolan's joking and clowning as he discussed the topic of marriage was a strange contrast to his serious demeanor in a talk originally posted on the "America" magazine website and now available at vimeo.com ("Six Insights from the Life of Dorothy Day"). In this talk, given at St. Joseph's Church in Greenwich Village, Dolan explains why Dorothy Day, the great "Catholic Communizer" (to use Vic Biorseth's term), is worthy of canonization; Dolan mentions her "prophetic disobedience" and youthful sexual libertinism.

Mrs. Engel has been active in the pro-life cause since the 1970s, and her book helps us understand how prominent Catholic psychologists and clerics have contributed to this mess, and are still doing so. After Engel's book's publication, Cardinal Dolan muddied the waters when he provided the lesbian and rabidly pro-abortion New York City Council Leader Christine Quinn with a photo opportunity in which he and she handed out Thanksgiving turkeys in November 2011 at a Catholic parish in Harlem. (Ms. Quinn subsequently "married" her lesbian partner in May 2012.) Mrs. Engel points out too accurately that prominent Catholic bishops--the chief example being Rembert Weakland, OSB--who promote and/or practice homosexual acts are merely removed from their positions to less prominent ones. They do not lose their standing, their perks, or their pensions. Greater reforms are needed than these hollow ones. What a disgrace!

Author Randy Engel also wrote Sex Education: The Final Plague in the Introduction to this 2006 book, "I remember promising myself that, as soon as 'The Final Plague' went to press and my familial and pro-life duties as the director of he U.S. Coalition for Life would permit, I would take a closer look at the members of the Catholic hierarchy who were pushing homosexuality on parochial school children. A few months later, I began what would be more than a decade-long journey into the homosexual maelstrom---without and within---the Roman Catholic Church. It started with a re-read of Reverend Enrique Rueda's 1982 definitive study of the homosexual movement in the United States, The Homosexual Network." (Pg. ix) She admits, "this book is not for the faint of heart. The subject of homosexuality is understandably distasteful. Its connection to the priesthood and the Catholic Church make it doubly so." (Pg. xxiv)

She notes that "In the spring of 1981... a homosexual bi-weekly... carried an interview with Jesuit priest John McNeill, an openly homosexual priest and co-founder of Dignity... IN 1976, Rev. Pedro Arrupé, Father General of the Jesuits, gave McNeil's book, The Church and the Homosexual, a nihil obstat and permission to publish, even though the book clearly dissented from Church teachings on homosexuality and even though McNeill had made it perfectly clear that he had committed himself to the Homosexual Collective---both publicly and privately."

The compilation of historical and documentary evidence and personal interviews into this unassailable 1282-page magnum opus took the author nearly two full decades. Like St. Peter Damian's Book of Gomorrah (Letter 31)* is a worthy classic to us now, in the next millennium The Rite of Sodomy will be the classic tome that historians consult to understand the homosexual infiltration of the twentieth and twenty-first century Roman Catholic Church. Not content with generalizations, Randy Engel names names, the debauched prelates and priests, places, and events, each instance meticulously documented with the incontrovertible evidence in thousands of detailed endnotes.

The Rite of Sodomy chronicles the history of homosexual subcultures from ancient times through the infiltration of the Catholic hierarchy by the Lavender Mafia. This book recounts the effective measures used by St. Peter Damian, one of the 33 Doctors of the Church, and Pope Leo IX to overcome the first scourge of sodomite priests in the Church. Currently entrenched myths about homosexual subculture in ancient Greece and Rome are compellingly debunked. Though not a physician or mental health professional, the author effectively adduces the medical evidence against the "God made me this way" shibboleths that are essential in advancing the homosexual agenda.

The guilty are named, as are the means they used to conquer even the Chair of Peter. An entire chapter is devoted to the evidence proving that Pope Paul VI was an active homosexual blackmailed into promulgating numerous modernist alterations in Catholic practice, deformities never ordered or envisioned by the Second Vatican Council.
