About this title


Essays explore issues of sexual abuse by priests, celibacy, Church hierarchy, and the Church's policy toward victims of abuse.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 9 Up-This title discusses the American Catholic Church and the numerous accusations that have been made against priests who allegedly sexually abused children in their care. It begins with an introduction to the problem, followed by a speech on the subject by Pope John Paul II. Chapters discuss the types of sexual abuse, whether or not the celibacy requirement for priests contributes to this abuse, whether or not the Catholic Church's response to it is adequate, and whether or not homosexuality in the priesthood fosters child sexual abuse. Each chapter identifies the author and provides a brief abstract of the article, followed with the full text. The book concludes with a chapter written by a victim and a chapter by a non-abusing priest. Organizations to contact, a bibliography, and a comprehensive index make this book a valuable resource for reports on the topic.
