Short biography
Taylor Reed Marshall (born March 29, 1978) is an American Catholic YouTube commentator, former Episcopal Church priest, and former academic, now known for his advocacy of traditionalist Catholicism. He is the author of multiple books, including the 2019 bestselling book Infiltration: The Plot to Destroy the Church from Within.
Marshall graduated from Texas A&M University in 2000 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in philosophy. After studying at Westminster Theological Seminary and Nashotah House, Marshall was ordained a priest of the Episcopal Church in 2006 by Jack Iker, the Bishop of Fort Worth who later established the Anglican Church of North America's Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth. Marshall had previously served as a youth minister at Saint Andrew's Episcopal Church while an Episcopal deacon.

Shortly thereafter, in 2006, he and his wife converted to Catholicism. In 2009 Marshall earned his Master of Arts degree in philosophy, and in 2011 earned a Doctor of Philosophy degree in philosophy, at the University of Dallas.

From January 2012 until June 2013, Marshall served as the chancellor of the now-defunct College of Saints John Fisher & Thomas More. Prior to his administrative work at the college, he was a professor of philosophy. Marshall also formerly served as the assistant director of the Archdiocese of Washington's Catholic Information Center. He is a founder of the New Saint Thomas Institute, an online Catholic theology educational program, and the Troops of Saint George, a Catholic scouting organization.

Marshall has published books in the fields of theology, philosophy, and historical fiction. All but one have been self-published by Saint John Press and Media, a company held and managed by Marshall. He actively promotes traditionalist Catholicism through his various websites, blog posts, podcasts, and YouTube videos. Marshall has been openly critical of Bishop Robert Barron's promotion of the Balthasarian thesis of the possibility of universal salvation. His 2019 book, Infiltration, claims to demonstrate that, over the last two centuries, the hierarchy of the Catholic Church has been actively subverted to promote Freemasonic power. The foreword of the book was written by Bishop Athanasius Schneider. The book has been controversial in Catholic circles, drawing both positive and negative reviews from various media outlets. In an interview, Archbishop Carlo Viganò spoke positively of the book's central thesis. Marshall, on his YouTube channel, regularly comments on statements from Viganò.

In October 2019, Marshall received media attention for publicizing an incident at the Catholic Church's Amazon Synod in which Alexander Tschugguel and an accomplice filmed themselves removing indigenous fertility statues, reportedly of Pachamama, from the Church of Santa Maria in Traspontina in Rome and throwing them into the Tiber river. In March 2020, it was revealed that Marshall himself had personally funded Tschugguel's trip to Rome and uploaded the video of the theft.

Marshall briefly received attention from Donald Trump's 2020 presidential campaign for popularizing Archbishop Viganò's letter warning of a deep state working to undermine the United States of America. Marshall was noticed by the campaign in return, and retweeted on the president's Twitter account. Traditionalist Catholic writer Matthew Walther criticized both Marshall's advocacy for then-President Trump and his claims against Pope Francis. Walther accused Marshall of "distorting or simply lying" about the pope in order to anger Catholics.

Marshall met his wife, Joy McPherson, in 1999. They were married on June 9, 2001, at Saint Andrew's Episcopal Church in Fort Worth, Texas. They have eight children. Marshall and his family converted from Anglicanism to Catholicism. They received confirmation from Bishop Kevin Vann in May 2006.

Horrifying. I read this as an outsider, wanting to see how such fantastic machinations could possibly work themselves into an apparently well established ecclesial body unchecked. I come away with one thought - if it happened to Roman Catholicism, it can happen to other faiths. "It is to the youth we must go", says the Alta Vendita. A conspiracy this grand could only be accomplished across many decades and generations. Like many diseases of the body, it often goes unnoticed in the early stages, and later, God forbid, becomes an accepted part of the organism, something natural to its condition. The body becomes nothing more than a host for ill, a marionette for the evil one.

As a Christian, I come away with one profound message - a critical battle front in spiritual warfare is in plain sight, but often goes unnoticed and unheeded: protecting the souls of our children from apostasy. Evil is more patient than we expect, and is not confounded waiting hundreds of years to grow strong roots.

The question to anyone reading this should be: how long have they been poisoning generations, and is it far too late to sound an alarm?

Essential reading for any Catholic questioning the direction of the Church

The last book of the series - the story line started out and progressed well. It kept me interested and eager to read more. However, I feel that the ending was extremely unsatisfying! That is not in any way how I thought it would end. The conclusion of the story, and this entire series, feels rushed and thrown together. There were such great explanations and character development throughout the series, yet the end seemed to abandon that technique. Although I didn’t like how the book ended, it would have gone a long way if more time had been spent in explaining decisions, events, and character revelations that took place in the last chapters.… (more)

How did Paul's background as a Jewish rabbi inform his message? * Did Paul believe that the Church was one, holy, catholic, and apostolic? Did Paul hold that we are justified by faith alone? Did Paul teach baptismal regeneration? Did Paul hold that one might "fall from grace"? Did Paul consider himself to be a "priest"? Discover a theologian who is sacramental, a churchman who is hierarchical, a mystic who is orthodox-a Paul who is Catholic.
