In light of the McCarrick report and ongoing serious dysfunction in the Archdiocese of Newark and at Seton Hall University, a well considered response to an increasingly clear pattern of entrenched apostasy is necessary. Now exposed before us stands the naked truth of institutional corruption so profound that it would be considered beyond farcical were it not devastatingly real. Through dereliction, systemic abandonment of the the teachings of Christ and complicity with the power of a predatory network within the Church, one involving the Archdiocese of Newark and Seton Hall University, the serial pederast and homosexual predator Theodore McCarrick was elevated to Cardinal and became the most powerful prelate in America. There is no basis for even considering the credibility of the Church’s explanation for his rise through the ranks when to this day, his successor in Newark, Cardinal Joseph Tobin, with the knowledge of the Apostolic Nuncio to the U.S., enables his Seton Hall hotbed of sin to persist in broadcasting satanic worship and promoting genocidal anti-Christian hate from its radio studio on the edge of New York City, five hundred feet from the seminary where McCarrick accumulated disciples and victims.
In 1986, under then Archbishop Theodore McCarrick, Seton Hall’s radio station, WSOU, adopted an extreme music format, just months after the now defrocked prelate took on his new role in Newark. These days, despite two past heavy metal bans and the arrest and conviction of their general manager for embezzlement in 2006, the station airs material promoting the occult, violently anti-Christian pagan ideologies, political violence, and (WARNING: OBSCENE AND HIGHLY DISTURBING) diabolically obscene brutality, the black mass and material clearly expressing worship of Satan. In addition to those linked here, there are numerous other examples available on this website that prove the case.
Is this what ecumenism has come to at Seton Hall? Satanic, occult and pagan beliefs certainly have been normalized and mainstreamed at public institutions of higher education.
It’s hard to imagine what those leading Seton Hall think it means to be a Christian. For those of you who espouse to be Catholic, you may recall what you said before God when you were asked “Do you reject Satan?”, “And all his works?”, “And all his empty promises?”. Think for a moment about these starting points, promises associated with the sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation, promises that you have presumably renewed before God throughout your lifetime. These are promises that leaders of our Church have broken in gravely serious ways by allowing Seton Hall to regularly call listeners in North America’s largest media market to submit to Satan.
You may also recall the first commandment, “I am the Lord thy God. Thou shalt not have strange gods before me.”
Some Catholics may be familiar with the fifth commandment, “Thou shalt not kill.”
Our recordings and transcribed lyrics show that Seton Hall’s radio station airs material seeking to gratify the listener through graphic accounts of the mutilation and murder of women and children. One song aired by the station (WARNING: OBSCENE AND HIGHLY DISTURBING) provides a first person account of the demonically driven beating of a woman’s head to a pulp with a sledge hammer. Another gives a first person account of filling a woman’s mouth with her feces, sewing her genitalia shut, mutilating her face with a bone saw, ripping off her limbs then injecting her feces into her jugular until she (WARNING: OBSCENE AND HIGHLY DISTURBING) “erupt[s] from every orifice“. Another song aired by WSOU offers a first person account of skinning little boys and making clothing from the skin. In another, an openly satanic band describes a ritual virgin sacrifice. Another proclaims “I killed your baby today”. A song in heavy rotation now, from an album titled “Matriphagy” (the act of eating one’s mother) describes a serial killer’s accumulation of rotting corpses. Another exclaims “Hack the heads off little girls and hang ’em on my wall.”
On a non secure page at wsou.net which won’t be linked here but can be found through a Google search of one of the following quotes, Seton Hall refers to WSOU broadcast standards and their application, for which Deirdre Yates, Dean of the College of Communication and the Arts is responsible, claiming “As a result of this two-step content review process, even though it sounds loud and heavy, the music heard on WSOU is some of the ‘cleanest’ in broadcasting” and “The findings of the Task Force confirm WSOU-FM’s commitment and dedication to the University, the Catholic mission, and our students and demonstrates [sic] why the station has won the prestigious Marconi and Peabody awards, earned the status of ‘heritage radio station,’ [sic] and has an alumni base of 4,000 with some of the most successful professionals in the broadcasting industry.”
The findings of the task force demonstrate why the station has won the prestigious Marconi and Peabody awards? Really? Seton Hall gets inundated with complaints for airing “Hammer Smashed Face”, “I killed your baby today” and “Black Masses”, they study the proof, then they claim their music is some of the “cleanest in broadcasting” and their exemplary decency standards are the basis for prestige and awards?
Should we be surprised that the secular world, increasingly hostile to Christianity, has lauded this major Catholic institution for rejecting the Word of God, succumbing to such evil and becoming a tool for its advancement?
Recall the graces bestowed through the sacrament of Confirmation. Among them, as stated in paragraph 1303 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Confirmation “gives us a special strength of the Holy Spirit to spread and defend the faith by word and action as true witnesses of Christ, to confess the name of Christ boldly , and never to be ashamed of the Cross.”
What are we to make of the abomination that continues to be foisted on souls in New Jersey and New York City by Cardinal Tobin’s university? What are we to make of the account those at Seton Hall give of their actions?
What might we expect faithful priests, bishops and confirmed Catholics to do about it?
Edward Pentin recently conducted an illuminating inteview with Fr. John Lavers, who led an investigation in 2012 into the homosexual activity among seminarians at Holy Apostles Seminary in Connecticut. Pentin asked Fr. Lavers “Why does no one ever seem to speak up in these circles? Is it because they’re all complicit in some way, because this behavior is so prevalent?” Fr. Lavers replied, “It is. There’s a complicity to this, because of either being embarrassed or fearful of rejection, or having a dependency on a particular person in the Church or threatened with physical harm personally or having family members threatened back home or they simply owe something to somebody else. Again, there are many within the clergy who owe a lot to McCarrick because of what he did or they wish to keep silent because of what they themselves were complicit in with McCarrick. So it’s the ‘don’t bite the hand that feeds you’ scenario. “
In an earlier 2019 interview with the National Catholic Register, Fr. Lavers indicated that Seton Hall was part of this homosexual network, stating “We had a very large thread of our investigation that led us to Seton Hall, and it was actually from Seton Hall that led us in the direction towards McCarrick and then eventually toward the Jersey Shore beach house.” He went on to say “Seton Hall did not cooperate with us at the time, so we had to go around the main administration at Seton Hall and go to people who were willing to talk to us who had gone to or passed through Seton Hall either as students, seminarians or as members of the staff. It was from them that we were able to build the picture of what was going on at Seton Hall.”
In this light we can consider Seton Hall’s response to the WSOU scandal. The unwillingness to take responsibility for the gravely serious and protracted problems with satanic and violently perverse broadcasting has been consistent among Cardinal Tobin, Seton Hall President Joseph Nyre, Dean Deirdre Yates, the Seton Hall Board of Trustees as well as other key figures at the Archdiocese of Newark and Seton Hall. Especially troubling is the Cardinal’s explicit, willful abrogation of the power and authority invested in him. The persistent weakness and indifference he has shown indicates a deeper crisis of leadership and of faith. The power of systemic corruption in the Church has so paralyzed weak leaders and so emboldened wicked ones that in the Archdiocese of Newark, like so many other places in the Church today, evil asserts itself openly, aggressively and with total impunity. Satan says to the leaders of our Church, give me your radio station to call millions of souls in and around New York City to hate Christ. The leaders of our Church comply. Again we must ask “Why does no one in these circles ever speak up?”. Would we expect the answer to be much different from what Fr. Lavers found in his investigations of homosexual networks? Would we expect the response from Seton Hall’s leadership to be anything but a whitewash or cover-up?
Our group has carried out many prayer events and demonstrations to bring about a prompt and permanent end to WSOU. One of those who has stood before Seton Hall and the Archdiocesan Center in Newark in prayer and public opposition to the station made a sign, featured at the beginning of this post, that expresses the consequential failures of those enabling WSOU’s ongoing assault on souls. Over a period of years, she experienced first hand both trauma and tragedy as someone close to her, a frequent listener to WSOU, spiraled ever more deeply into the world of the occult promoted by the station. We welcome comments from others who have witnessed or experienced similar tragedies that have unfolded with these diabolical music subcultures. In her sign, a report card, she presents criteria by which the leaders of Seton Hall and the Archdiocese of Newark should be measured with regard to WSOU and its influence on Seton Hall students and even more importantly, on the wider world.
We invite readers, especially Cardinal Tobin and Seton Hall President Joseph Nyre, to dismiss the obvious lies contained in Seton Hall’s official whitewash and honestly measure WSOU relative to these criteria, accounting for the recordings and other proof provided in this post and on this website.

I expect that in a spirit of liberal intellectual openness and in adherence to secularism’s most sacred principles, Seton Hall’s leaders will dismiss any enforceable standard of Christian or Catholic decency or morality as having no place in a university environment or in any public forum.
Each week WSOU is heard by about 100,000 listeners. Their satanic and occult saturated broadcasting is doing more direct damage to more souls than the homo-predation of Theodore McCarrick and his cadre of sexually incontinent perverts ever did. What happens to the lives and eternal salvation of young Christians when they turn to atheism, Satanism, witchcraft, paganism or the occult by way of the aggressive influences of the station and the anti-Christian subcultures it fosters? As we watch the Church hemorrhaging young Catholics, are its institutional leaders so weak and so insecure that they’ll continue to tolerate the satanic to appease them? Both the McCarrick and Seton Hall radio scandals are profoundly damaging disgraces to Christ’s Church, and both are clear manifestations of the kind of deep systemic spiritual and moral corruption that has long dominated Seton Hall University and the Archdiocese of Newark.
It’s time now, Cardinal Tobin, for WSOU go. It’s time for the Church and it’s institutions to be led by those who will turn back to the Great Commission given by Christ. “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.”
