NEW YORK, Sept. 4, 2018 /Christian Newswire

The Lepanto Institute was formed in 2014 for the purpose of investigating and exposing threats to the Catholic Church, both from without as from within. The Fulton Sheen Initiative of the Institute was created specifically for taking out radio ads addressing the current scandal of homosexual clergy within the Catholic Church.
"It's perfectly clear that a vast network of sexually deviant priests has infiltrated the Catholic Church, causing the crisis we now face," said Michael Hichborn, president of the Lepanto Institute. "If Cardinal Dolan wishes to preserve the faith and maintain the trust of the faithful, he will need to begin by clearing out all priests with a record of sexual deviancy."
Investors in the Fulton Sheen Initiative have already committed $25,000 to the radio ads, spurring on support from the faithful.
"Ever since we took out these ads, our office has been swarmed by phone calls and emails from faithful Catholics supporting our effort and asking us to keep the pressure up," said Hichborn. "The campaign has been an overwhelming success in alerting the laity to the problem and giving them a proper course of action."The Lepanto Institute for the Restoration of All Things in Christ is a research and education organization dedicated to the defense of the Catholic Church against assaults from without as well as from within. Founded in 2014, the Lepanto Institute has exposed several instances of Catholic or Catholic-affiliated organizations being directly involved in events or other matters directly contrary to Church teaching. www.LepantoInstitute.org
