Priest Fathers Multiple Children in Texas
"Fr. Tony gets a lot of girls pregnant." That's a line from a Catholic church document uncovered by a Houston TV investigative team.
It refers to Fr. Tony Gonzalez who reportedly fathered four kids as a priest. "The church always protected me," the priest tells KHOU TV.
Our hearts ache for every single person who was hurt by Fr. Tony. We beg those who saw, suspected or suffered his crimes to come forward and get help, preferably from independent, trustworthy sources like therapists, police and support groups like ours.
He worked in four Texas dioceses: Brownsville, Austin, San Antonio and Houston. He also worked in Louisiana. We urge bishops in these dioceses to aggressively reach out to parishioners in their diocese and urge victims, witnesses, and whistleblowers to come forward.
