Is Bishop Serratelli Ignoring Evidence of Priests’ Active Homosexuality?

Editor’s note: In spite of repeated requests for comment or explanation over the course of several weeks, the bishop, priests and various diocesan personnel involved in this report refused to explain the evidence of these priests’ homosexual relationship or reassure Church Militant that the bishop would investigate the matter. As of press time, both priests remain in active ministry, supported by laity money.

Intimate photos of two priests in the diocese of Paterson, New Jersey reveal a homosexual relationship that sources say the local ordinary is ignoring. Church Militant obtained a series of selfies taken by the two priests, along with a screenshot of the source’s email alerting Bp. Arthur Serratelli in November.

Father Dulibber G. Gonzalez and Fr. Marcin Bradtke are alleged to have been in a homosexual relationship dating to before their respective ordinations. Father Gonzalez was ordained in May of 2018, and Fr. Bradtke was ordained in May of 2016.

The string of intimate selfies were allegedly taken at Fr. Bradtke’s parish in May of 2018, right after Fr. Gonzalez’s ordination.

Church Militant contacted both priests, their respective pastors, the Vicar General and Moderator of the Curia for the diocese, the Vice-Chancellor/Priest Secretary to the bishop, the Director of Clergy Personnel and Chair of the Presbyteral Council, the Judicial Vicar, and Bp. Serratelli himself. We received no response, although shortly after contacting Fr. Gonzalez, he deleted one of his two Facebook accounts.
