The Whole Truth is Available Now!

This book exposes the breadth of the media’s bias against the Catholic Church, using the child sexual abuse dilemma in society as the launching point. An amazing and liberating story told by the most credible and unprejudiced source… an attorney who has successfully sued the Church for the last 20 years. Joseph Klest sheds light on the overwhelming reform that has transformed the Catholic Church into a blueprint for prevention and intervention of abuse. The steps you can take to protect your children from abuse and the legal recourse available if your child has been abused.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to Darkness to Light, a program that raises awareness of the prevalence and consequences of child sexual abuse by educating adults about the steps they can take to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to the reality of child sexual abuse. Read more about Darkness to Light.

Joe Klest and his fellow attorneys have changed the course of history, both Catholic and American.  In doing so they have changed the way society responds to the sexual violation of the vulnerable and they have banished the denial and apathy that allowed this terrible tragedy to fester in our society for as long as it did.  There will always be child abuse because serious psychosexual disorders are not something easily stamped out, but there will not always be wholesale coverups because Joe Klest and others like him simply won’t allow them to happen.

Why you should know the truth

“I have heard stories that would curl your hair. I have interviewed countless victims. I have spoken at victim conferences. I am as acutely aware as anybody on this planet could possibly be of the suffering and evil caused by the sexual abuse of children. I am, in the fullest sense of the word, a world class expert on the sexual abuse crisis and I have only come to deepen my conviction that victims must always be our number one priority as we root out this societal scourge.” sig-klest

Which is why (and you may want to sit down for this) I believe I must set the record straight by saying that:

The Catholic Church has, in fact, handled the abuse crisis better than virtually every other institution on the planet afflicted with the same corruption.

The stupidest possible approach we can take to the abuse crisis is to single out for punishment the Church that has not only undertaken reform very well, but is, without any possible exception, the greatest single engine of charity and works of mercy for the poor on the planet.

Scapegoating the Catholic Church is a particularly ugly act of hypocrisy by a culture that routinely uses abused children as human shields for attacking the Church while turning a blind eye to children abused by more acceptable ideological allies.

We have to address the abuse crisis across all of our society and we should look at the pioneering steps the Catholic Church has taken to do so rather waste our time beating up the Catholic Church and learning nothing from the quite brilliant work of reform it has done.

The sex abuse crisis stretches far beyond the Catholic Church.

The truth about the movie Spotlight

The Boston Globe wants us all to celebrate its “breaking” of the “Catholic” Abuse Scandal. In fact, Hollywood has helped us all relive the well publicized Catholic Scandal with the production of the major motion picture, Spotlight. The fact of the matter is that the Globe, the New York Times and other major media outlets have long been headlining abuse reports involving the Catholic Church proudly on page one, while instances in other religions and organizations received more moderate and standard coverage, or no coverage at all. In fact, the full breadth of the problem has been little discussed. Why? Because to expose the truth would undermine the most favored story line of mainstream media – the Catholic Church and its many evils.
