A Predator Priest by David MargolickAdult Nonfiction
This book makes it shockingly apparent how complicit the church hierarchy was. They not only knew about the abuse for years, but supported it. I just don't understand why only the priests get vilified. Why doesn't the entire Catholic church accept their involvement rather than sweeping such things under the rug?
This story follows the career of a priest from the seminary to retirement and all the lives he destroyed along the way. This is NOT a motivational story, by any means. It is a ripping off the cover from an emotional band-aid that went hidden for too many years. An important, and horrifying, read.
