Father Gordon MacRae has been in a New Hampshire prison for more than 20 years, and I believe he was falsely accused. He could have been out much sooner, if he had said he was guilty. But he's not.
His accuser was a young man that Father Gordon hardly knew. After the church paid out money, the accuser's brother said the same thing had happened to him. He received money, also. This family of brothers are the only ones who have ever accused Father Gordon.
No one else has come forward. At the time, the newspapers all but crucified Father Gordon. One newspaper even said that Father Gordon admitted his guilt. That's a lie; Father Gordon has always maintained his innocence. His bishop wouldn't help him.
What has come forward are people who say that this family bragged about concocting a story to get money from the church. And the National Center for Reason and Justice has just announced a new appeal. Of course, they need money and prayers.
