More on Maciel
Another former priest and seminarian with the Legionaries of Christ has come forward with allegations against Fr. Marcial Maciel, the suspended founder of the Legionaries. Brian Mershon has the story, and the letter alleging the abuse. Mershon also notes that Jim Fair, U.S. spokesman for the Legionaries, repeats the familar refrain that allegations of abuse made against Maciel are akin to the persecution of Jesus.
