Opus Dei Paid Almost $1 Million To Settle Sexual Misconduct Suit Against Popular Priest
A woman alleged the Rev. C. John McCloskey groped her repeatedly during Washington counseling sessions.

...Rev. C. John McCloskey, a once-prominent cleric in the Washington area who helped convert several well-known conservative figures, including Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Sam Brownback and Larry Kudlow. ....

“I love Opus Dei but I was caught up in this coverup — I went to confession, thinking I did something to tempt this holy man to cross boundaries,” the woman told the Post. ....

“We wish to sincerely apologize — and offer our fervent prayers — to the victim, and anyone else who has suffered because of this misconduct by Fr. McCloskey,” the Catholic Information Center said in a statement on Monday. It added that Opus Dei is probing a second possible sexual misconduct claim against the priest.

McCloskey, now in his 60s, has not responded publicly to the allegations. Opus Dei said the priest has Alzheimer’s and is largely incapacitated.

5. '90s/'00s it was a spate of conversions of wingnut CIA/FBI & NOVAKula, INGRAHAM

​INGRAHAM went relatively low profile when she converted and when she surfaced, I strained to see whether she had changed from her virulent hateful self towards a Christlike spirituality and love, peace, etc. For a year or two she was a bit less strident, toned down in her attacks on all things Lib, but soon after that she resumed her viciousness fairly much back to her previous level. There was this ad saying she donates to The Little Sisters of the Poor, and I called to ask the Mother Superior who answered whether converts might show modified behavior towards spirituality/gentleness/whatever. She said she knew of no donations from this person and didn't even know who she is, that she would look into it.

6. A truly gross nazi, whatever her professed religion.

Odd that she needed to change from baptist to catholic. No doubt for money, influence, political purposes. I don't understand the mechanics underlying it.

I see she called for the Pope to resign, and sheisskopf Bill Donohue used his catholic league to defend her, coz she's 'under attack'.

They're more catholic than the Pope, I guess. Typical lying nut repuglinazis.
