Infiltration — Who is really doing it?

“No man can serve two masters. For either he will hate the one, and love the other: or he will sustain the one, and condemn the other. You cannot serve God and Mammon.” — Matthew 6,24

• February 2006  Marshall writes, “The works of St Josemaria are online. I’ve added them to my links section. I thoroughly recommend his book of proverbs: The Way.”  Original link

• May 2006  Marshall finishes/resigns his ministry at Saint Andrew's Episcopal Church where he was a clergyman/curate. Marshall writes in The Crucified Rabbi, “I discovered the Jewish origins of Catholicism while I was still a Protestant clergyman…God quickened the process of my conversion to the Catholic Faith with an insight that I gained from a Jewish rabbi. Without his knowing it, this rabbi opened my eyes to a connection between biblical Judaism and Catholicism. […] The rabbi explained, “We Jews believe that if someone is suffering and you invoke the name of his or her mother in prayer, God will be more merciful in granting your prayer for that person.” […] The rabbi’s answer was a surprising confirmation that Catholic customs are rooted in a Jewish understanding of reality.” (see pp. 1-9 )

• 2008 to present  Marshall is a Contributor, author and editor at Called to Communion. This site is run by members of Opus Dei.

• 2008 to 2009  Marshall blogs on Beta Culture 11 website which was a conservative online magazine and social network.

• 2008  Interesting tidbit, Marshall’s book forthcoming book, The Crucified Rabbi: Judaism and the Origins of Catholic Christianity, was originally to be titled, Does the Pope Wear a Yarmulke: Discovering the Jewish Origins of the Catholic Church.

• April 2008  Marshall writes, “I met Msgr. Conley at a café outside the Vatican in 2006 (a couple blocks east of St. Anne’s Gate). I was wearing clerics in those days as an Anglican clergyman. The conversation turned to John Henry Newman and within twenty-four hours, Msgr. Conley arranged for me to speak with Cardinal Baum about converting the Catholic Church. So while Msgr. Conley helped to lead me out of the Episcopal Church…”

• 2009  Marshall graduates from the University of Dallas with a M.A. in Philosophy, while there he was on the Braniff Scholarship plus Stipend.

• September 2009  Marshall recounts to an audience how his father worked with Tom Monaghan (reputed Opus Dei and donor to Opus Dei) of Domino’s pizza fame and the influence he had on him as a 12 year old. Mentions meeting Msgr. James Conley while he and his wife were celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary in Rome and his role in introducing him to Cardinal William Baum. Marshall goes to Baum’s apartment and recalls their conversation where Baum tells Marshall, “My son you are a Catholic!” and gives him a rosary he had used when he was last with Benedict XVI. Marshall attends a papal mass with Benedict XVI and then returns home to Texas. In Texas he sends a letter to Bp. Kevin Vann whom he meets with shortly. Three months later he converts to the Novus Ordo.  Prays to St. Jude and nine days later gets hired as assistant director of the Catholic Information Center.  Marshall also tells how he ended up back in Texas and Msgr. Stetson notified him that the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter was to be created. Then Marshall gives a history of Anglicanism and what the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter is. How it’s like and also better than Opus Dei under church law. Followed by a Q & A session. MP3 Audio Version of my Conversion (and about the Anglican Ordinariates)  Download mp3

• October 2009  Marshall writes, “Did the founder of Opus Dei prophesy the Pope's Anglican Ordinariate? In a way, yes. According to Msgr. Bill Stetson, Saint Josemaria Escriva, the founder of Opus Dei, visited England back in 1958. He frequented many Anglican Churches and was keen on rekindling fervor in England for the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. While visiting an Anglican Church, Saint Josemaria Escriva said in Spanish, "If we don't lend them a hand, the Christian Faith will die away in fifty years." Well fifty years later (2008) the Anglican Communion became fractured through the ordination of active homosexuals and by the general erosion of Christian orthodoxy. Fifty-one years later (2009) the Holy Father "lends a hand" by establishing the Anglican personal ordinariate. Pretty amazing if you ask me. Saint Josemaria had it just about right.”  Original link

• September 2009  Marshall publishes The Crucified Rabbi: Judaism and the Origins of Catholic Christianity. It is the book form of the talks he gave while at the Catholic Information Center. The head of the center, Msgr. William Stetson was the impetus that he put these talks into book form (p. xi).

In the Acknowledgements (pp. xi-xii) of the The Crucified Rabbi: Judaism and the Origins of Catholic Christianity Marshall thanks many people including the following:

Msgr. William H. Stetson — who was a member of Opus Dei and Marshall’s immediate boss at the CIC 
Kevin Jones — Opus Dei member, bookstore manager at the CIC, and reporter.
Bp. Kevin Vann — is pro-illegal immigration, has shepherded priests that are supporters of same-sex marriage & women priests, and has swept under the carpet a multitude of sex crimes committed by his prelates including Opus Dei priests.
Cardinal William Baum — was a peritus at Vatican II, a member of the World Council of Churches, Archbishop of Washington, D.C where he covered up a plethora of sex crimes by his prelates, strong supporter of Opus Dei, and is rumored to have been a homosexual. 
Archbishop John Myers — is Opus Dei. He covered up Cardinal McCarrick's sex crimes as well as other prelates. He is known for living high on the hog.
Bishop Kevin Farrell — (now a cardinal) was then-Cardinal Ted McCarrick's roommate for six years. McCarrick is a former papal advisor, infamous disgraced child predator, who was laicized. Farrell is a supporter of LGBT and is intimately connected to Opus Dei.
Jacob Neusner — Benedict XVI's favorite rabbi. Benedict told pewsitters - the rabbinic tradition of the elders (condemned by Jesus) was a valid biblical interpretation, stated Christianity grew out of rabbinic Judaism, and advocated dialogue with Talmudists.
Mark Drogin — was a self described "athesist" Jew convert to Novus Ordo, was President of now defunct Remnant of Israel. The Mission of Remnant of Israel was to proclaim the Jewish roots of Christianity. His mentor was Orthodox Jew turned 'Catholic', Fr. Arthur Klyber.
David Moss — was born and raised Conservative Jew (the brand of Francis' buddy, Rabbi Skorka) became Novus Ordo and founded the Association of Hebrew Catholics which pushes Talmudic derangements as Catholic. Cardinal Raymond Burke is big supporter of their work.
Roy Schoeman — was a Jew who was a follower of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach (Chabad-Lubavitch, Rebbe Schneerson, & Meir David HaKohen Kahane) that had 'god' appear to him which led to his Novus Ordo conversion. He teaches Catholic prophecy is being fulfilled by adopting Talmudic beliefs in church.
Scott Hahn — former Presbyterian minister who converted to the Novus Ordo thanks to Opus Dei. Currently runs the St. Paul Center For Biblical Theology at the Franciscan University of Steubenville.
Brant Pitre — author of the book, Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist: Unlocking the Secrets of the Last Supper. Notice everyone on the back cover is Opus Dei or attends their centers which also use Pitre's books to explain Jesus, Mary, & Apostles.  The book, also opens with two quotes from the Talmud (p. xii)  and uses the shown Jewish texts (pp. 19-21) to flesh out the Old Testament to prove Jewish roots of the Eucharist.
James D. G. Dunn — a minister of the Church of Scotland and a Methodist local preacher. He teaches that the New Testament was a major reason for antisemitism among Christians.  
Dr. Michael Barber — was the dean of theology at John Paul the Great Catholic University and is a member of the Augustine Institute as are Scott Hahn & Brad Pitre. He is a Philo-Semite and believes the Catholic faith came from the Jews.
N. T. Wright — an Anglican 'bishop' and teaches that Jesus was a subversive, "It is beyond question that Jesus was acting subversively" and   Another philo-semite that attributes antisemitism to the New Testament. Wright writes, “The tragic and horrible later use of Mt. 27.25 ('his blood be on us, and on our children') as an excuse for soi-disant 'Christian' anti-semitism is a gross distortion of its original meaning, where the reference is surely to the fall of Jerusalem.”
Other — There are also several more connections of people mentioned to the University of Dallas, the Franciscan University of Steubenville and Opus Dei.

The book, The Crucified Rabbi: Judaism and the Origins of Catholic Christianity, has so many things errors, heresies, and blasphemies it shouldn’t be in print. A small sample: (p. 64) Marshall  pushes the 'Association of Hebrew Catholics' and 'Remnant of Israel' as groups approved of by the church. “these two Jewish Catholic apostolates seeks to preserve Jewish identity and promote... heritage of Judaism within the Catholic Church.”; (pp. 71-2) Tevilah in a mikveh = Baptism. Before conflating the Feast of Dedication with Hanukkah, Marshall equates baptism with the insane man made rabbinical rules of what is impure and in need of a ritual bath.; (pp. 175-8) Purim & Hanukkah. Marshall informs readers that Purim is similar to Holy Days dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary and that Jesus the Christ attended Hanukkah festivities even though Hanukkah originates from 600 years after the events recorded in Book of Maccabees. Also, see There is poison in the mother but her milk is pure? & A Holy Land Pilgrimage with Taylor Marshall for more analysis of the book.

• November 2009 Marshall writes, “Alright, I have had some to read and re-read the Holy Father’s new Apostolic Constitituion Anglicanorum Coetibus. I was able to speak with Monsignor Bill Stetson today on the phone who cleared up a few ambiguities.”

• January 2010  Marshall has guest post by Mark Drogin, the President of Remnant of Israel, whose goal is to proclaim the Jewish roots of Christianity. Mark Drogin on the Pope’s Visit to the Roman Synagogue

• 2011  Marshall graduates from the University of Dallas with a Ph.D. in Philosophy, on scholarship while there. His dissertation was Thomas Aquinas on Natural Law and the Twofold End of Humanity and was carried out under Fr. James Lehrberger.

• 2011 to 2019  Marshall is a Fellow at the Saint Paul Center for Biblical Theology. Only one post remains on his website about the St. Paul Center, #086: Taylor’s Conversion Story to Catholicism – Interview with Matthew Leonard.  Here is Marshall listed on their website as a Senior Fellow. The St. Paul Center For Biblical Theology was founded by Scott Hahn and is located at the Franciscan University of Steubenville. It is Opus Dei.
2012 to June 2013  Marshall is Dean of the College and Professor of Philosophy at the College of Saints John Fisher & Thomas More (aka Fisher More College) where he teaches: Logic; Philosophy of Nature (Plato, Aristotle, Porphyry, Thomas Aquinas). Marshall is the school’s chancellor and sits on the board. He was also responsible for hiring new teachers, overseeing the headmaster and the faculty, designing the curriculum, and responsible for the Year in Faith Lecture Series, etc… (See June 2013 for resignation)

• December 2012  In a press release from Fisher More College one reads, “Dr. Marshall was an Episcopal priest before he and his wife were received into the Catholic Church by Bishop Kevin Vann of Fort Worth on May 23, 2006. Immediately afterward, Taylor was appointed by Bishop Kevin Farrel (then auxiliary of Washington, D.C.) as the Assistant Director of the Catholic Information Center in Washington, D.C., where he lectured regularly. He served under Archbishop John J. Myers of Newark and Msgr. William Stetson for the Pastoral Provision of John Paul II, the canonical structure by which Anglican clergy are received into the Catholic Church and go on to pursue Holy Orders in the Catholic Church.”

• June 2012  Marshall writes post, The Dress Code for the Vatican – Should it be Universal? But his daughters dress immodestly in social media photos he posts.

• January 2013 Marshall writes, “The Latin Mass is like beer. You have to drink it in a few times to like it. My challenge would be for you to attend the Latin Mass for four Sundays in a row before making a decision. Give it that long. Here’s why: You will slowly make a shift in the way that you assist at Holy Mass. Your concept of Active Participation will transform in your heart. There is a lot of quiet “space” in the Latin Mass. The first time or so, you’ll be sitting there doing nothing and thinking, “What’s going on? Why aren’t we doing anything?” When you’ve reached that point, you’re getting close. It’s like drinking beer for the first time. “This tastes terrible? What’s the hype? I don’t understand.” But then you come to realize that beer is more than just the taste.”

• January 2013  Marshall posts, Bishop Vann, My Father in Christ,  “Bishop Vann is literally the spiritual father of my wife and myself. In 2006, I was an Episcopalian priest in Fort Worth Texas and Bishop Vann counseled us tenderly as we wrestled with Christ’s call to enter the Catholic Church. I think I was the first Episcopalian priest received by Bishop Vann.”

• February 2013  Marshall writes post, Are We Catholics Willing to Die for the Sake of Virginity and Modesty? But his daughters dress immodestly in social media photos he posts.

• June 2013  Marshall resigns from Fisher More College and writes, “I resigned when moral, theological, and financial discrepancies came to light regarding the presidency of Michael King...Mr. King refused to disassociate himself from the public statements of faculty member Dr. Dudley that claimed in his Year of Faith lecture that Catholic professors have the duty to teach young people that Vatican 2 is not a valid Council (he also endorsed other “resistance” positions regarding the Novus Ordo, John Paul II, etc.) [...] FMC hosted a public repudiation of Vatican 2 and the Ordinary Form of the Mass in April of 2013 that was so offensive that my wife and I walked out of it before it’s conclusion...At the same time, Michael King estranged himself from the diocese of Fort Worth by not allowing the Ordinary Form (as stipulated by the previous ordinary Bishop Vann of Fort Worth). He also contracted an irregular/suspended priest without faculties, and hired “trad resistance” faculty while there was no bishop in Fort Worth to check these developments.” See link for context  And Fisher More College’s response to Marshall

For more on this see: Bishop of Fort Worth draws the line [UPDATED] ; “Fisher More College” on The Street -- Financial Difficulties Provide For Closing of Traditional College; Bishop Bans Fisher More College from offering Traditional Latin Mass to students ; Taylor Marshall weighs in on FMC

• June 2013  The Troops of Saint George is founded by Dr. Taylor Marshall in order that priests, men, and young men: “experience reverent and beautiful Masses on mountaintop vistas; pray the Rosary with other men around fire pits in the freezing cold; catch a Fish Friday meal by fly fishing for trout; go to confession with our priests while kneeling on moss in the woods; teach our sons archery, rockclimbing, marksmanship, fishing, survival skills…and Catholic virtues; foster a love for the priesthood and a reverence for the sacrament of Matrimony; support our local parish, our priests, our bishops, and community by being available for works of mercy and service; Once you experience TSG you will see how we are able to transform not only individual men, but entire parishes.”  What is left unsaid is the Opus Dei influence (see June 2018).

• July 2013  Marshall admits that he has been a member of the Franciscan of the Immaculate’s MIM for some time and fan of this group. This is the Franciscans of the Immaculate founded by Father Stefano Manelli. This is problematic for several reasons. The Franciscan of the Immaculate should have been closed down as an order for their financial improprieties and their abuse which came to light via several Italian court cases and Italian media reports (i.e. making nuns prick their fingers and signing their contracts in blood). Marshall writes, “In case you don’t know what “radical traditionalism” looks like, here’s a snap shot: the denial of the Jewish holocaust, the outright denial of Vatican 2 as a valid council, rhetorical style of the Rorate Caeli blog, the embrace of isolationist sub-culture of Catholicism or “Amish Catholicism”, the denial the charismatic gifts and the charistmatic movement, sympathy for the Bp Williamson’s style of traditionalism, disdain for Pope John Paul II and Pope Francis, the belief that Latin Mass Catholics are “A Team” and Novus Ordo Catholics are “B Team”, Gnostic ecclesiology – that “traditionalists” form the one true invisible Catholic Church, I really don’t think that most people attending the Latin Mass are all that close to the radical traditionalism expressed in the points above. However, I do believe that when Father Angelo threw pasta on the wall, some of it did stick.”

• August 2013  Marshall founds the New Saint Thomas Institute of which he still runs and styles himself President. The New Saint Thomas Institute offers advanced online training in Philosophy and Theology in the Catholic tradition.

• March 2014.  Marshall writes, “Saint of the Week: St Josemaria Escriva (The Way, Furrow, Forge in one volume)”  Original post also includes a picture of Escriba. He still has this post up but deleted the quoted text and the photo of Escriba.

• April 2014  Marshall writes, “I'm about to go to the Dallas Opus Dei recollection. Anyone else going tonight?”  And in the comments writes “I'm not a member. Just a groupie.” Was the recollection at the Wingren Study Center?

• November 2014  Marshall writes,“Eight years ago, a priest named Father Bill Stetson told me that I should start writing down the stories that I told to my children about Saint George. So after they went to bed, I nightly sipped on a snifter of Grand-Marnier and typed out the life and adventures of the historical Saint George. It’s finally being published for this Christmas with the title: Sword and the Serpent.”

• 2015  Marshall founds the Maccabee Society. A sample post on the Maccabee Society’s website, Plan of Life Revisited: Begin Again, ““Your interior life has to be…to begin… and to begin again.” – St. Josemaria Escriva [...] “Conquer yourself each day from the very first moment, getting up on the dot, at a fixed time, without yielding a single minute to laziness. If, with God’s help, you conquer yourself, you will be well ahead for the rest of the day. It’s so discouraging to find oneself beaten at the first skirmish!” — St. Josemaria Escriva”

• March 2015  Marshall recommends “Top 100 Catholic Theology Books”. List includes: four books by himself, six works by Josemaria Escriba, one by John XXIII, one by Louis Bouyer, two by Romano Guardini, one by Dorothy Day, one by John Paul II, one by George Weigel, Silence by Shusaku Endo (yikes!), one by Fr. Stephano Manelli, one by Edith Stein, one by George Bernanos, one by Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, and who knows what else I missed.   After the purge, he removed most of these authors. (See October 2019)

• June 2015  In 2015 Taylor Marshall became a faculty member for The Rome Experience for seminarians. The Rome Experience, “is inspired by the thought and work of St. Josemaria Escriva, founder of Opus Dei”

• October 2016  Marshall writes post, Taylor Marshall is Part Jewish as it turns out In this post, “My uncle recently had a genealogical blood test that identified him as 19.3% Ashkenazi Jewish…which makes me 9.65% Jewish. [...] So this explains a few Jewish things in my life [...] So there you have it. My inner Jew has been discreetly speaking all along.  As usual he removes this post.

• February 2018  Marshall records a video, The Name of Jesus adds up to 888 (against the 666) that teaches gnosticism as being Catholic

• March 2018  Marshall publishes another video, The Milk of Mother Church is Not Tainted or Poisoned where he says, “And as I was, suddenly I saw this beautiful woman. She had blond hair, she was perfect, no wrinkles, no spots, and I immediately discerned that this was Holy Mother the Church. “And she was writhing in pain. She was in a bed, there were sheets on her, and she was very sick. And I noticed that her breasts were engorged with milk, tons of milk. And there were babies and children crying out to her that were hungry. And she wanted to feed them, and she was upset, but she was so sick she could hardly sit up from her bed...There’s poison in the Church, the Church is hurting, there’s always been some poison in the Church. And Mother Church still loves us and Mother Church still wants to give us milk, and she will, but it’s a difficult time. But the milk is pure. The sacramental graces of Holy Mother Church is pure. She’s still beautiful, she’s still immaculate, there’s still nothing sinful, wrong, or broken with Mother Church. But there has been introduced something into her that is poisonous, and so she’s struggling a little bit.” It’s a train wreck of a video that needs to be watched.

• May 2018  Marshall writes, “Our Catholic feast of Pentecost derives from the Jewish feast of Pentecost or Shavuot (Feast of Weeks). Pentecost (πεντηκοστή) is Greek for the “50th [day]” since Passover/Easter (7 weeks x 7 days = 49 days). For the Israelites, Pentecost was important because: It is the day on which the rainbow appeared to Noah. It is the day on which Moses received the 613 Laws from God…”

• June 2018  The practical wisdom of St. Josemaría Escrivá is posted on the Troops of Saint George website.

• July 2018  Marshall writes post, The Messianic Theology of Bob Marley and His Conversion to Ethiopian Orthodoxy, “I just returned from the Caribbean. As I listened to the music Bob Marley and the local reggae music, I tuned in with my theological ear. [...] It remains unclear whether Bob Marley repudiated his belief that Selassie but this interview seems to indicate that he did so and that he died a faithful member of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church.”  Marshall remains mum about role Sephardic Judaics played in the music career of Bob Marley and the reggae genre which was financed by the riches of the a Judaic slave plantation. Chris Blackwell, the son of a Sephardic Judaic mother (Blanche Lindo) an heiress of a slave labor plantation in Jamaica, promotes Bob Marley. He launches Island Records on May 22nd at he age of 22. Blanche Lindo has ties to British intelligence and and romantic relationship with Ian Fleming who wrote his pro-British intelligence James Bond novels at the 'Goldeneye' retreat now owned by Chris Blackwell.

• December 2018  Dr Marshall Sent You a (Video) Christmas Card!!!  With an immodestly dressed (v-neck that ends in the middle of her cleavage) teenage daughter.

• January 2019  Marshall goes on Patrick Coffin’s show to promote his Troops of St. George. Troops of St. George Founder Dr. Taylor Marshall Interviewed by Patrick Coffin   Patrick Coffin while not a member of Opus Dei, has attenede Opus Dei’s Hours of Recollection and used to be employeed by Catholic Answers which more than a few connnections to Opus Dei. 

• January 2019  Marshall states that he helped Msgr. Bill Stetson of Opus Dei set up the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter (Anglicans converting to the Novus Ordo = Opus Dei)  The Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter was also formed by then Bishop Bernard Law (a friend of Opus Dei since  it arrived in USA) (pp. 73-4) , Bishop Kevin Vann, Archbishop John Meyers (Opus Dei), and the late Msgr. James Sheehan (Opus Dei)

• April 2019   Marshall has occultist Charles Coulombe on as a guest, Did Popes Favor the United States? with Charles Coulombe (Dr Marshall #240)

• April 2019  Wonder how Marshall got the buzz going and the sales on Amazon for his terrible book Infiltration? Wonder no more… Dr. Taylor Marshall’s Infiltration Launch Team Infiltration’s Launch Team had 2,015 members!  He uses this tactic for all his books. Here is another one for Sword and Serpent,

• May 2019  Breitbart News (Israel, Zionist, Opus Dei connections) interviews Marshall and promotes Infiltration. LifeSiteNews (Opus Dei co-founded) promotes Infiltration.

• May 2019  As is typical of Opus Dei proxies, there is a fight/disagreement between Taylor Marshall and E. Michael Jones. Taylor Marshall and Tim Gordon Slander E. Michael Jones

• May 2019  Infiltration: The Plot to Destroy the Church from Within is published by Crisis Publications, an imprint of Sophia Institute Press.  In the book’s Acknowledgements (p. xv) Marshall writes, “I am grateful to His Excellency Athanasius Schneider, O.R.C., for reading the manuscript and for writing the foreword. Also, a special thanks to Charlie McKinney, John Barger, Charles A. Coulombe, and Rev. D. Christensen for reading the manuscript and for their advice.” Let’s see that’s: an occultist (Coulombe) ; an ecumenist and Opus Dei supporter (Schneider) ; and publishers of Opus Dei books (McKinney & Barger) & .

This book is terrible. One example should suffice to demonstrate the lack of scholarship. Chapter 27 — Sankt Gallen Mafia: Homosexuality, Communism, and Freemasonry lumps an assorted group of characters together because they are either from or have traveled to the town of St. Gallen and/or the Canton of St. Gallen.  Marshall states that bishops who support homosexuality met in St. Gallen under Cardinal Carlo Martini and then segues into Fritz Platten, an Old Catholic communist from the Canton of St. Gallen, followed by a leap to Aleister Crowley whose OTO’s headquarters is in Appenzell. Marshall then recalls the truly tragic and sad story of James Grein who was abused by Cardinal McCarrick, who happened to spend time in St. Gallen and coincidence of coincidences Crowley was buried in New Jersey in the same diocese which McCarrick was in charge of. The source for the OTO information and the connection between the St. Gallen mafia is one Leo Zagami. Zagami was a DJ “Starting his DJing career through the medium of catholic church radio stations in his native Italy, Leo Zagami was the youngest broadcast DJ in his country after playing his own show at the age of 13 in 1983....By 1991, Leo had initiated the Friday Uonna club in Rome - another first in his country, combining as it did art exhibitions with an eclectic mix of house, disco and Detroit techno sounds - before opening The Underground in the catacombs of Constantine.” Zagami claims to have become a member of the Illuminati he later left Catholicism while still a member of the Illuminati and became a Sufi Muslim  and yet later left the Illuminati but was still a Muslim and began to peddle the story that he was a member of the Illuminati but decided to spill the beans on the whole operation because it began to make him feel sick. Zagami then renounced his Sufi Islamic religion and went on the electric carnival circuit where he continues to tell people he is ex-Illuminati and the Jesuits are behind all conspiracies. He is Alex Jones go to guy on what's happening in the Vatican. It's always astonishing, shocking, and appalling but never true. The post made by Zagami that Marshall borrowed heavily from for this chapter was Zagami re-writing and spicing up what OTO obsessed Peter-Robert Koenig wrote on his website which are excerpts from his books on the OTO. There is no proof that the OTO's international HQ is in St. Gallen.

Twitter in September before the purge (20,100 tweets) & twitter in November (771 tweets)   His website removes all mentions of Josemaria Escriba and most of Opus Dei. This happens the week before the ‘Pachamama Splash’ carried out by Alexander Tschugguel (Opus Dei connected if not a member, marriage instruction and married by Bp. Athanasius Schneider). The Pachamama statues were interestingly taken from the Church of Santa Maria in Traspontina. This church is the seat of Carndinal Marc Ouellet (former Archbishop of Quebec) who is a strong supporter of Opus Dei. Two sites/people broke the story of ‘Pachamama Splash’ one being LifeSiteNews, Controversial Amazon Synod statues seized and thrown into the Tiber River (FULL VIDEO) and the other being Taylor Marshall, The Idols of Pachamama in Rome Are Destroyed and Cast Into the Tiber River  Could go on about the Opus Dei connections but this should suffice.

Louie Verrecchio explains how it was nothing more than a marketing ploy in his entry, REVELATION: Dr. Taylor Marshall, ABM, is short For those who are wondering about Alexander Tschugguel, there is also more than appears to the naked eye. This thread is a good place to start for the curious


  1. I was suspicious of Taylor Marshall. He has the arrogance I always found prevalent in Freemasons I have encountered throughout my life..

  2. @the Fresh Maker - You don't have anyone.. Geez.. I just lost 10 mins of my life I can never get back.

    I'm still trying to figure out what your issue with with Opus Dei??

    1. Really? Have you not read this man's blog before? Opus Dei is the Novus Ordo in action and on steroids.

    2. No, Opus judei is freemasonry inside the Church.

  3. I always read and listened to Marshal's podcasts. But I was never convinced about him, I don't know why. The last podcast, speaking about the pre 1955 Holy Week ceremonies just startled me...

  4. If it happened after 1958, don't trust it.

  5. Is that you saying that Franciscans of the Immactulate mismanaged their finances, or is it Marshall?

  6. I am a convert to Catholicism (2002) and to Tradition (2015) and while I've never been a theologian, I did some teaching as an Episcopalian and Novus Ordo Catholic, even with Regnum Christi-yikes. I would be horrified if someone made a timeline of my learning journey. I am sure he is quite embarrassed by a lot of this and wouldn't repeat it. Having lived in the Dallas area as a Catholic years ago, Opus Dei is everywhere people are trying to practice the Novus Ordo "faithfully". Oh if only Opus Dei and Regnum Christi hadn't swooped in, think where Tradition might be now! It's easy to look back and see the devil's hand in those groups. When you don't know any better they present themselves as a lifeline to the real Church.
