Overview

We must continue to demand justice and compassion for victims of Catholic clergy abuse. This is not optional.

Time and time again in recent years, Catholics and non-Catholics alike have been horrified by hideous stories of wretched abuse and betrayal.

However, there is a side of the Catholic Church abuse narrative that is not getting the attention it warrants. Countless priests in the United States have been falsely accused of committing horrendous child abuse.

Topics in this book include:
... how the most recent figures indicate that one third of accused priests have been accused falsely;
... the stunning court declaration with the opinion from a retired FBI investigator that "one half" of all accusations are "entirely false" or "greatly exaggerated";
... the American cardinal who has been the target of two bogus abuse charges;
... how accusers have retained huge monetary settlements even though their allegations later proved to be false;
... the father of an accuser who appeared at the funeral of an accused priest and apologized for the false allegation that his son leveled;
... the Catholic archbishop who tells of being spat upon by a member of SNAP (Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests);
... the monsignor who waited five years to be exonerated of abuse charges even though his alleged victims denied that they were molested;
plus much more.
