Prominent predator priest returns to Detroit
A prominent Catholic priest from the Detroit area has returned home in the wake of his admission that he had an “affair” and fathered a child whom neither he nor his Catholic institution are supporting.
He’s Fr. Thomas D. Williams of the controversial Legion of Christ, a scandal-wracked and cult-like Catholic religious order. He also faces other accusations (see below).
Our hunch is that at least a few people in Detroit Catholic circles have knowledge or suspicions of Fr. Williams’ exploitation of women. If so, we hope they’ll find the courage and strength to do what’s right and report these to secular and church authorities. It’s wrong to let wrongdoers escape responsibility for their wrongdoing, or experience minimal consequences.
