Liberation Theologian Blows His Brains Out — Allegation He Enabled Other Pedophile Priest(s)

Father Virgilio Elizondo, 80, was found dead at his home in San Antonio, Texas, on Monday, reportedly by suicide.

Considered the “father of Latino theology,” Elizondo was featured in Time Magazine in Dec. 2000, under the headline, “If Jesus had been born in San Antonio.”

In May 2015, the priest was accused in a lawsuit of sexually abusing an unidentified boy 30 years ago.

The lawsuit alleges the boy was abused by another priest, Jesus Armando Dominguez, and then claims he was abused again when he reported the original abuse to Elizondo.

Elizondo, a native of San Antonio who for decades taught at the University of Notre Dame, denied the allegation and vowed to prove his innocence.
