Legionaries of Christ banned from using internet, mail

Luis Petersen Farah informs us that members of Legionaries of Christ recently received a decree banning them from using internet, email, social media, etc, unless supervised by, well, their superiors.

Petersen's argument is that despite the Marcial Maciel scandals, nothing has changed in this paranoid and authoritarian. It makes perfect sense though - how can organizational unity be achieved if the members would find out, through reading online, that their founder was a pedophile psychopath who raped and abused small children and was defended the entire time while doing so by the high clergy of the Mexican Catholic Church, and  even protected by Pope John Paul II himself?

No, better to pull the plug.
