SACRAMENTO, Calif. (ChurchMilitant.com) – The grandfather of a persecuted priest explains why he pickets the bishop’s office every day asking him to resign.
David Leatherby Sr. has been going to the diocese of Sacramento’s pastoral center five days a week for months with a sign asking for Bp. Jaime Soto to resign. Church Militant spoke with David Sr. to find out why he’s been an outspoken critic of Bp. Soto.
David Sr. is the grandfather of a priest, Fr. Jeremy Leatherby, who has been on a leave of absence for two and a half years while the diocese of Sacramento investigates a claim that he had an inappropriate relationship with an adult woman.
