Ed Peters speaks the truth about the Legion of Christ

Sez he:

I have long held that nothing can rehabilitate the institution known as the Legion of Christ nor any of its affiliated works, and I’ve seen nothing in the last three years that gives me any reason to change my views. The LC and its progeny should be completely and forever dissolved. Period.

Take the whole monstrous colossus apart bolt by bolt and leave nothing left.  Help its members find things to do in other apostolates.  Set its leadership (the ones who knowingly enabled and covered for Maciel) to useful work such as cleaning toilets. Take its assets and divide it among the alien, orphan, and widow. Let nothing remain of this giant robot built to facilitate and protect the crimes of a monster.  As long as it goes careening on it will do what it was built by its evil designer to do.

A good piece on the Inklings in the Chronicle of Higher Education
Had a good chat with Steve Greydanus last Friday
If the Legionaries had any decency at all...
