No one seems to be covering him lately.
I don't follow Church Militant, but occasionally I'd watch Mic'd Up on a local television station. I never check listings, but simply tune-in from time to time. Lately I've either missed his broadcast or the local independent station no longer airs it. I have not checked into Church Militant to see what's up, but in my search to see if the program was cancelled, I came up with some posts rather critical of Voris. Seriously critical of his 'sodomite' past. One blogger suggested he may have invented the story of threatened defamation by the Archdiocese of NY, not unlike the early 20th century evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson supposedly faked her own death to cover up an extramarital affair.
Are people distancing themselves from Voris? Is it the 'sodomite past' or his unproven allegations against the Archdiocese of NY the reason Voris' star is dimmed? If indeed he has fallen out of favor with his audience. It's an interesting development.
He may have caused his own downfall.
I didn't know CMTV was threatened with a lawsuit if they continued their investigative reports on the Archdiocese, until I came across this on Wiki:
Voris and CMTV have dropped their investigation of the New York Archdiocese after receiving a letter from Madison Avenue threatening to sue them out of existence if they continued reporting baseless stories/scandals. Since April of 2016, Church Militant has not reported on the New York Archdiocese nor slandered Timothy Cardinal Dolan publicly. - source
Unfounded allegations of a conspiracy against him may rightly be one factor in his diminishing popularity, but I think the 'sodomite' past may be part of it. At least one blogger I know of is questioning that story. If he was more gay than straight - well - you know what they say; 'once a homo always a homo'. Some people apparently want to know 'number and kind' when it comes to his sinful past - just how gay was he? Just when did he stop being gay? Did he quit cold turkey? I have no interest in those details, but apparently others do, and it may well be in the back of the minds of many.
The Church is very forgiving - but Catholic laity, not so much - especially when it comes to sins which cry to heaven for vengeance.
There's a columnist online who writes for the Catholic Herald, she just wrote a post wondering why the Pope keeps saying that the confessional is not a torture chamber. She and Fr. Rutler can't figure that out - it seems they just can't imagine why some Catholics would fear the confessional. It makes me wonder. Don't they know Catholics like that? Don't they read what Catholics say online? Don't they see the hurdles Catholic bloggers and websites create to discourage fallen away or distant Catholics seeking God? Don't they read how Catholics online will often remind former sinners of their sinful past? Confession not only absolves us of our sins, it removes guilt, and shame.
Yet Catholic laity just won't let penitents off that easy.
Refuge of sinners, pray for Gary, pray for us.
