Betrayal: Catholic Chuch sex abuse (video)
The Fifth Estate, Oct. 3, 2016; Seth Auberon, Crystal Q. (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly
Betrayal: Abuse in the Catholic Church in Nova Scotia
Betrayal tells the story of childhood sexual abuse [including rape] victims in Nova Scotia, who continued to feel profound hurt and damage as adults. Searching for restitution for their suffering, some launched or joined in lawsuits against the Catholic Church. Their partial victory has had an unexpected outcome: In order to settle those lawsuits, the Church has begun selling of some Church property in Nova Scotia -- property that local Catholic people helped build and pay for over many generations. Betrayal highlights the consequences of abuse that continue to echo throughout the Catholic Church and in communities across Canada, the U.S., and Europe.
