Now where does it hurt?

By Diogenes (articles ) | Dec 04, 2003

Pastoral outreach in Dallas may seem conditional:

Before his diocese suspension, Father Lucio had been restricted to nonparish work for most of the last 15 years, initially because of allegations that he pressured young immigrant men for sex. The diocese has said the allegations could not be substantiated.

Father Lucio has denied the allegations but once said, under oath, that he sometimes handled parishioners' genitals when they had health concerns.

But a very prominent Texan supplied the apodosis: "...then their hearts and minds will follow."

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
