Responding to Taylor Marshall-1

Hello Everyone! This post is the first entry to introduce my video series responding to Taylor Marshall and Timothy Gordon on Fátima. I announced the series here on the site recently.

In September of 2018, Marshall and Gordon made a podcast entitled Third Secret of Fatima & the Smoke of Satan in the Church. I was quite interested to see the direction in which they took the discussion. There were good points during the podcast. There were also some questionable moments.

Among other aims, the article seeks to connect the third part of the secret of Fátima with some recent news on allegations of sexual abuse.
