Overview

This is a true story of my rape and molestation by a Catholic priest during my youth. I have lived with these memories throughout my entire life, and have made it my mission to expose those who rape and molest innocent children and teens. I wish to expose many who hide cloaked behind their red and black robes of deceit and to reveal the hypocrisy that bleeds from within the walls of the Catholic Church. My Story shows how this satanic predator of a priest was finally defrocked by Pope John Paul II on January 11, 2004, after 39 long years. My attorney, the Honorable Justin "Chuck" Ravitz, believed my story along with the many others who came forward and bared their souls of torment from being raped and abused by these priests of the Catholic Church. He represented all of us in a class action lawsuit against the Archdiocese of Detroit in January, 2005 to no avail. The Catholic Church's lawyers and hierarchy blocked the victims from ever having their stories told in open courts. People need to know the truth about how these victims suffered at the hands of these "holy" priests. My book in a very small way opens the door to the truth of these matters and cites references for further education about these crimes, victims and perpetrators.My mentor, A.W. Richard Sipe, a well known court expert witness and consultant in over 200 cases, is a former priest trained in dealing with these problems. He is currently married having one son, and I am thankful to have him as my consultant while writing my book. He has his own website www.richardsipe.com dedicated specifically to this horrific problem. Another website to visit is www.bishop-accountability.org, where one will be aghast as to the many priests, bishops and cardinals whose names appear as perpetrators of these sexual crimes against the innocent as well as a resource cite to glean more from the many articles posted.My book is just one small story from just one victim who has the courage to come forward and bring this into the light. Too many "sexcretes" (my term for sex secrets within the Catholic Church), too many lies, too many cover-ups by the hierarchy, too many silent victims forced to live their personal horror the rest of their lives. It was not my fault for being a victim nor is it the fault of any of the other victims of these sexually deviant perverted privileged society of cardinals, bishops and priests.

Editorial Reviews

Christopher Papa
I had a great time reading this book. Dave was certainly changed by this experience and I am tortured to know this situation has gone unresolved. It is the sheer principle of it all. These individuals are proclaiming spiritual innocence while raping their victims of it. It's sick, sad, and stupid.

    Thank you for your bravery.
    Written in a report like style. It exposes not only the monsters but those who stood by and at times covered so 
    the monsters could continue.  Mr. Winegar is grateful to certain priests who listened to him and helped him in obtaining his 
    annulment. I say they were the worst monsters. They did nothing either thus allowing the monsters free rein.
    I left the church over this issue. As a nurse it sickens me.  Cherie Logan Thurner RN

    This is just my opinion. This book was not what I expected. I feel it was poorly written and vague. I don't want to come off like a pervert but was expecting more when it came to the abuse and what the writer was thinking. I did like how he explained how it affected his life and how he felt caught between a rock and a hard place. I also liked how he has dealt with it and how although it changed his faith he was able to continue to have a relationship with God. Last 20 pages (I believe) are a copy of a lawsuit.
