MI-Priest in Detroit leaves to care for child he fathered

A Detroit area priest from a troubled Catholic religious order (the Legion of Christ) has reportedly quit, saying he’ll take care of his child. He is Fr. Thomas Williams, a prominent cleric.

Dozens of priests have, over the years, promised to care for children they’ve fathered, only to break these promises. We hope Fr. Williams honors this pledge and supports his child. We also hope that other women who were sexually exploited by cunning, well-educated and supposedly celibate clerics will come forward, get help, expose wrongdoing and start healing
