Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report Exposes the Catholic Church’s “Playbook for Concealing the Truth”


The highly anticipated 2018 Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report was released Tuesday naming over 300 predator priests who were credibly accused of sexually abusing more than 1,000 children over the course of 70 years across six Pennsylvania dioceses.

The information contained in this report substantiates what we have known for years: the Vatican and those in positions of power in the Catholic Church have continued to deceive the public and its parishioners through present day.

As explained in the Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report, this problem is not happening “somewhere else,” but it’s happening everywhere. The Church’s “playbook for concealing the truth” is a dangerous and sobering assessment of how the leaders of the Catholic Church made a conscious decision to protect their power, reputation and stature over the safety of children.
