Call the hotline with your latest hot, lewd rumor about the SSPX!
Note at the bottom the label "St. Michael's Media/Church Militant." Those two organizations are the siamese twins of Voris's scandal-mongering project and perhaps they allow the organization to play word games. Can CM claim certain people don't contribute to CM because they give to St. Michael's Media and vice versa?And
So now let's shift to deceitful crackerjack reporter, Christine Niles. In her "demand letter" to us she accused Susan of making this "objectively false" statement:
"Terry Carroll is Church Militant's Texas Sugar Daddy"
Objectively false. While Mr. Carroll donated to Church Militant years ago, he has not financially supported the apostolate in years, and therefore cannot be our “Sugar Daddy.”
Christine implies here that Carroll has had nothing to do with CM "in years." Isn't that the impression you got? You would think from her statement that Niles can hardly even remember who Terry Carroll is. He exited the scene years ago. The man who gave them $300,000 just disappeared into the mist.
That is "objectively false" so Niles either lied or has dementia.
Carroll, at least as recently as 2019 (the latest IRS year available), was on the Board of St. Michael's Media and has been FOR YEARS. Here's the information from ProPublica's Non Profit Explorer with details about St. Michael's Media. Terry Carroll has been listed as a director since 2016 although he may have been one earlier. And that, friends is a way of supporting CM with in kind donations. Oh, but he didn't "financially" support them. Ah...right.
Guess who else is a director?
Does CM have board meetings which presumably are required by their articles of incorporation and their 501(C)(3) status? Their IRS filing for 2019 lists Terry Carroll as working for the organization five hours a week. (But don't even think that he was "supporting them financially.") Even if he's working his five hours a week from Texas, presumably he's in contact with Voris, Niles, and other members of the team. And how often do they hold board meetings? Are they in-person or by Face Time or Zoom?
Christine's disingenuous pretense that Carroll disappeared from the CM scene years ago is an outright, easily provable lie. It's also interesting that all these board members are listed as receiving zero salary. Maybe they aren't paid a salary for being on the board, but St. Michael's Media spent over a million and a half on salaries in 2019. Some Charity reporting groups list the salary of the organization's head, but there's no indication of President Mike Voris' salary or crackerjack investigator Christine Niles.
There's a section on the form for the five highest paid employees. It's blank, but only requires listing those making over $100,000. I wonder if anybody makes $99,999.
Salaries are apparently paid by St. Michael's Media since the cumulative salaries are listed on the IRS form. Which brings me back to my question. If Carroll hasn't given to CM in years (wink, wink) is he funding the organization through St. Michael's Media? CM is great at splitting hairs.
Follow the money. Someone needs to do a major investigation of CM's funding trail. Who's funding Church Militant/St. Michael's Media and what's the agenda of those behind the CM/St. Michael's Media curtain? I can provide information about Terry Carroll's hatred for the SSPX. He's on record. How much is he involved in the current SSPX attack?
At this point, unless there is absolute proof of what CM claims, I presume they are lying or using Jesuitical double-talk just like Christine did in her demand letter referencing Terry Carroll. What other lies was, and is, she telling?
Pray for these people. I think Dymphna had it right when she described them as Folie a Deux.
Here's the data from ProPublica. Think I'll ask an accountant friend to look at the forms.
