The cost.A reality check

Beyond Belief covers many aspects of the crime of clerical sexual abuse. These include  the history,the
lies and secret system of cover-up that reaches to the highest level . It implicated the late Pope John
Paul II. It implicates his successor Pope Benedict XVI. 

The financial cost to the United States Church alone since the conspiracy  began to unravel in 1983 is $6 billion and rising. The additional global cost over the same period is in excess of a further $4 billion.
The spiritual cost is far greater. Sexual abuse of any kind, by a priest is an act that both physically and 
spiritually is nothing less than the rape of the victim.

To be continued.
