UPDATE: Changobeer sighting? John Allen sighting!



- Mouse from AmP (Deirdre Mundi) is blogging again this afternoon and she deconstructs two myths of Legion/RC supporters: 1) God writes strait with crooked lines; 2) God brings good out of evil.

- A saint yells at a pederast? (and nobody notices?)

Very busy today with other projects. However, there's a lot going on for readers looking to make sense of the Legion of Christ/ Regnum Christi scandal:

- If found out late last night that the Jason Berry interview with Anderson Cooper had been postponed again due to the health-care debate. As soon as I find out what the new date is, I will let you know.

- Possible Changobeer sighting in the comments section of Eric Sammons's blog. (Hat tip to Jane for mentioning this in yesterday's post indexing of Changobeer's blog).

- John Allen is back! He's mounted a vigorous defense of Pope Benedict's handling of the sex abuse crisis involving Europe and the Legion. I'm still trying to wrap my head around the National Catholic Reporter leading Pope Benedict's defense against his secular critics.

- Aaron whacks a troll over at Erin's blog, explaining his attempt to report to local police the abuse he [allegedly] suffered as a minor in the Legion.

- Let us join Giselle in praying to St. Joseph, Protector of the Universal Church, as the next stage of the apostolic visitation begins. (Click here).

- Nat has put together an interesting blog attempting to untangle the Holy See's request to untangle the Legion from Maciel. (Click here).

- Bonum posts a letter from a grateful mother to her bishop, for helping her and her husband rescue their son from a Legion apostolic school. The mother lists several serious allegations against Maciel and the methology her son was subjected to. (Click here).


Changobeer's comment is odd. On the one hand, he speaks as though he's still an LC ("those of us who continue to serve in the Legion"). On the other, he signs his comment as a Jesuit ("fr. damien karras, sj").

What I noted in the comment was the lack of the use of irony which typifies the real style on changobeer. I think it is just someone else using his pseudonymn.

"So my guess is that he's simply playing his pseudonym as he attempts to exorcise the spirit of Maciel from the Legion"

If it's him. Erin's on blogger and he did not use his blogger profile on that post.

I've seen posts with the nick elsewhere and would never assume one way or the other.


I kid you not:
