Two men filed lawsuits Tuesday against the Archdiocese of Santa Fe and two of its Albuquerque parishes, saying they were sexually abused as boys by parish priests in the 1960s and ’80s.

In the complaints, the men allege the priests were among dozens who were part of a “culture of sex abuse.”

    The blinders in these cases should have been taken off 50 years ago.

    These are fresh allegations, if there was abuse, it happened 30-50 years ago. There is NO WAY to prove there was any abuse. This is a simple case of extortion by the lawyers

    If 1/3 of the Priests in the Archdiocese were raping children, one might think that there would have been at least a couple come forward in a timely fashion, seeking justice at the time, not a payout decades later.
