Issues with (Br) Alexis Bugnolo, Ordo Militaris & FromRome

I did a long-form investigative piece on a person who I keep seeing online promoting conspiracy theories and claiming they are Catholic.

Alexis Bugnolo runs FromRome, Ordo Militaris, and Scholasticum online. The first is meant to be a news site, the second to eventually be a military order protecting persecuted Christians, and the third a university-level academic program. However, Alexis is not a brother as he claims. All three organizations also have significant issues.

This piece will define a religious brother, show Bugnolo is not one, look at his reliability as a source, then deal with the three sites individually.

You can read the rest over on Patheos.
