With this book, Dr. Plante, has made a vitally important and authoritative contribution to the countless efforts being made worldwide to shatter the stubborn stonewall of denial surrounding clergy sexual misconduct within the Catholic church. For those Catholics who persist in believing that priests who engage in sexual misconduct are rare anomalies or that people who accuse them of such are merely liars and bashers, let them read this book. But only after having prepared themselves for the very real possibility that before they even complete their reading, any sacred illusions they currently have about priests will be irrevocably blown to smithereens.

This book will open the eyes of many people who thought that priests, men of God who are still living in flesh, could not go on a molesting rampage. Well, this book will prove them wrong. Unfortunately, a few bad priests, nasty ones destroy it for all the good priests who have done good work in their parish. The author of this book shows that there are serial fornicators among priests who prey on young altar boys and others under their care.
For many years, the Catholic Church used to keep these news from reaching the mass of faithful. At the same time, those priests' superiors kept assigning them to other parishes where they resumed abusing people. Maybe now, they will look forward to assigning them to foreign countries where laws are lax. It's unfortunate these people will still be around young souls to hurt.
Any way, this is a good book that will give a clinical and historical background of a problem that has existed among the faithful for far too long. Now the judges and proscutors want to drag these mischievous priests before the rules of law. No more hiding! No more lies from those who should have known better. No more covering the backs of those priests who had a nasty hobby of hurting innocent children.
A good book to read!
