ALBUQUERQUE -- The latest in a series of lawsuits targeting the Archdiocese of Santa Fe over alleged sexual abuse by priests contends a New Mexico man was molested by two Roman Catholic priests years ago. The 39-year-old man, identified only as ''F.R.D.,'' contends he suffered numerous psychological and other effects of the alleged abuse, and that the experiences caused him to pick up men for sex although he's married and heterosexual. Defendants are the archdiocese, the Rev.Leo Courcy and the estate of the late Rev. Joseph Anthony Gallegos.
