Virginia priest takes leave of absence after revealing he was an ‘exalted cyclops’ in the KKK
ARLINGTON, Va. – After the events in Charlottesville, a Virginia priest wrote an editorial Monday on how he turned to a life of faith after leaving the Ku Klux Klan. Then he decided to step down from his position in the church. “The images from Charlottesville brought back memories of a bleak period in my life that I would have preferred to forget,” wrote Father William Aitcheson, 62, of the Catholic Diocese of Arlington in a post for The Arlington Catholic Herald titled “Moving from hate to love with God’s grace.”
