    the presenters say there is a culture of corruption in the church.
    The mix of sanctioned secrecy, protection from misdeeds, and normal sexual urges, manifests itself on finding the most vulnerable to prey on - those who won't squeal on you because they are too ashamed and too indoctrinated that their priest is above reproach.

    I did not write this diary very well.
    I did not express myself well and I may be saying things in an impolite way - shame on me.

    But this 1 1/2 hours of personal experience from 4 or 5 men and one woman, including the author of the book, perhaps 2 or 3 former priests, one attorney speaks for itself.

    I only put this diary out as a linkage to the video which is very persuasive, heartfelt  and not ideological.
    The blame goes right to the top of the church and these people are hoping that Pope Francis will have the courage to stop the celibacy of the church to end the rampant abuse and what they think is the only way to solve the crisis.

    Finally people have gotten sick and tired of being had and taken for idiots. Mikhail Gorbachev
