World: The Legion of Christ says sorry for their scandal-ridden past

  • We ask all those who accused him in the past to forgive us, those whom we did not believe or were incapable of giving a hearing to, since at the time we could not imagine that such behavior took place.
  • A statement from the Legion of Christ • Regarding the major sex abuse scandals that happened on their watch over the last 60 years. It’s a heavy apology for the conservative sect of Catholicism – their leader for many years, Father Marcial Maciel, reportedly (on top of child molestation allegations) lived a double life which included mistresses and children. “We accept that, given the gravity of his faults, we cannot take his person as a model of Christian or priestly life.” No kidding. source
