Description

This book exposes the Vatican's cover-up of sexual abuse by a powerful religious order favored by Pope John Paul II, the Legionaries of Christ. The order operates worldwide and was founded in Mexico by the Rev. Marcial Maciel Degollado, who has been accused by nine former members of abusing them when they were boys. Through the Legionaries of Christ, Degollado has ingratiated himself with the pope, insulated himself from scrutiny by having his followers take a personal oath to never criticize him or his decisions, and avoided investigation and prosecution.
