Dubious Priest Accusations and Convictions

[Note: Friends of Justice is a personal blog. I speak only for myself.]

Dear Friend of Justice,

My organization — the National Center for Reason and Justice — currently sponsors the cases of two imprisoned Catholic priests: Gordon MacRae and Paul Shanley. We have, from time to time, been contacted by other priests and their advocates but haven’t had the resources to investigate the cases.

I recall reading about many cases in the media that sounded very doubtful, especially those cases where “repressed memories” have been alleged. Unfortunately, I did not make note of these cases.

Recently I was contacted by a journalist who is interested in doing an article about falsely accused or wrongfully convicted priests. If you know of any dubious cases, please contact me at bobchatelle@gmail.com.
