The Maciel Meltdown

New details are emerging about the uber-theocon’s secret life:

Fr. Maciel had a daughter, a young woman now just over the age of twenty living in Spain, born from a relationship that was not sporadic, but regular, between the priest and a lover he had.

Even First Things is changing its tune and worrying about how Maciel’s power may have corrupted the Catholic press. Ahem.
