L.A. Catholic notes that former L.A. priest and child molester Michael Baker was arrested yesterday at Los Angeles International Airport on charges of Creation Spirituality with a minor.

Tod Tamberg, a spokesman for Mahony, said Thursday that the archbishop did the best he could with information he had at the time. "Baker was a classic example of how deceptive these kinds of people are. He lied to the archbishop about the nature and extent of his problem, he deceived his therapists, and he deceived the young people who trusted him," Tamberg said. "That is the nature of this compulsion. This wasn't known in 1986. We know it now."

Baker had arrived at LAX returning from a vacation in Nepal. And Thailand.
