48 Honduran seminarians claim widespread abuse

Nearly 50 seminarians in Honduras have protested against what they say is a widespread and entrenched pattern of homosexual practice in Tegucigalpa’s major seminary. In a letter written to the seminary’s format ors that was subsequently circulated in June to the country’s Catholic bishops, the seminarians asserted “irrefutable evidence” exists that a homosexual network pervades the institution and is being protected by its rector. Cardinal Maradiaga has, thus far, refused to act.
