Crowds waved yellow and white Vatican flags as the Popemobile arrived in the steep streets of the colonial city of Guanajuato from neighboring Leon, in highly Catholic, central Mexico, where the pope is staying for three nights.

The 84-year-old pontiff, on his first visit to Spanish-speaking Latin America, celebrated a private mass Saturday before meeting with Calderon late afternoon.

They had been expected to tackle the issue of Mexico’s raging drug violence and a Mexican debate on secularism. The presidency said they had discussed a broad range of international issues, including the combat against organized crime and climate change.

Shortly before the meeting, victims of sexual abuse accused the Vatican of protecting a notorious Mexican priest for decades, and expressed frustration that Pope Benedict XVI would not meet them in Mexico, at a news conference.

A group including alleged victims of abuse by Marcial Maciel, the late founder of the influential Legion of Christ religious order, presented a book that they say proves that Vatican officials ignored crimes committed by Maciel.

The pope has met with abuse victims in many foreign countries but has no plans to do so in Mexico.</div></div> link (http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2012/03/25/sex-abuse-scandals-shadow-pope-in-mexico/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+TheRawStory+%28The+Raw+Story% 29)

Where have I heard about this sect before?

Father Jonathan Morris, a Fox News analyst, was on Bill O'Reilly lecturing America about Obama's decision that Catholic institutions do not get to discriminate on birth control coverage for their employees due to their religious convictions. Bill introduced him as a 'Roman Catholic' priest, but he's much more than that. He's a premium member of the Legion Of Christ. I've written at length about the Legion Of Christ, a Catholic offshoot cult-like sect of the church and its sickening founder. The Legion of Christ is another Catholic order covered in Sin </div></div>
