Marcial Maciel Degollado, one of Mexico's most famous priests and the founder of Legionaries of Christ, was the subject of a New York Times story today alleging that he carried on an affair that led to a child. Maciel, who died last year, was also previously accused of sexually abusing male students under his tutelage. I'm curious if his name will continue to grace the coin-collection plastic containers in the Farmacias Guadalajara here in Torreón. I say yes.
