Is the devil behind the Catholic Church sex abuse crisis?

In his new book ‘Infiltration, The Plot to Destroy The Church From Within,’ Dr. Taylor Marshall attempts to get at the spiritual roots of the clergy sex abuse crisis as well as other problems in the church, claiming the devil is to blame. Dr. Marshall joins Lauren Green to discuss his book, the sex abuse scandal and share his thoughts on what has contributed to the spiritual decay within the church.

New York’s Archbishop Timothy Cardinal Dolan described last year’s months of revelations about decades of clerical sexual abuse as “the summer of hell.” It’s a figure of speech that one author believes may have more bite than bark. In other words, demonic forces may have played a large part in the Catholic Church’s crisis.

A warning here: If you don’t believe that Satan and his spiritual band of evil malcontents are on the prowl in this world, don’t bother reading his book – per his request.

Author Taylor Marshall said, “We have to remember from the Christian point of view going back from well before the beginning of time, there is the fall of the angels. Lucifer and a third of the angels fell. And then all the way up to the time of Christ, there was all of these betrayals that were spiritual in nature.”

In his new book, “Infiltration, The Plot to Destroy the Church From Within,” Marshall attempts to get at the spiritual roots of the clergy abuse crisis in the Catholic Church.
