Hello! I just wanted to provide a place for those who wished to share opinions on the question of whether or not T.O.R.C.H. is too closely tied to the Legion of Christ/Regnum Christi to be useful--and for those who think any affiliation wouldn't matter anyway. All opinions, of whatever strength, are quite welcome so long as conversation is courteous.
I do think that LC/RC connections are red flags to joining a group. Does it mean all people who have ever been involved with LC/RC are "tainted" in some way? Not at all. But the order/movement is famous for hiding or downplaying its role in or connection to various apostolates, and it is a legitimate concern to wonder if, nationally speaking, T.O.R.C.H. leaders are tied to Regnum Christi and would, eventually, seek to move the group under the Legion's affiliations or otherwise "integrate" the T.O.R.C.H. group with Regnum Christi.
If you agree, if you disagree--tell me why below! :)
