"There is no crueler tyranny than that which is perpetrated under the shield of law and in the name of justice."
Charles-Louis de Secondat, Baron de Montesquieu, 1742

"There is no segment of the American population with less civil liberties protection than the average American Catholic priest." Dr. William A. Donohue, President of the Catholic League for Religious & Civil Rights (NBC's "TODAY," 10/13/05).

"Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor." Exodus 20:16
On September 23, 2011, Father Gordon MacRae marked 17 years in a cell in the New Hampshire State Prison. Father MacRae is 55 years old. The crimes for which he was accused and convicted are claimed to have occurred when he was between 25 and 30 years old. Brought with no evidence or corroboration whatsoever, the claims were accompanied by lawsuits settled for hundreds of thousands of dollars despite much evidence of fraud. On April 27 and 28, 2005, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist for The Wall Street Journal published an account of the travesty of justice by which Father Gordon MacRae was convicted (see “A Priest’s Story” above). It is a story, as described in First Things magazine, of “a Church and a justice system that seem indifferent to justice.”

In the years since the panic-driven and selective release of files and other accumulated claims and demands for money – but no evidence – some began to take a closer look under the surface of the case against Father Gordon MacRae. What is found there is troubling to anyone concerned for the state of due process, justice, and liberty in America.
