Deliver Us from Evil (2006) [* * * * * *]

Religion is in crisis - finally! For the first time in centuries, religious clergy have been outted for their habit of abusing children.

This movie follows the serial abuser, Oliver O'Grady, a priest of the catholic church who has raped and sodomized children as young as 9 months old for over 30 yrs, protected by the church even today. It shows the rage of the parents who trusted him, and the horror of the children (who're 40+ now) who were forcibly held down and told that their parents wanted it to happen.

In a study done, they've found 10% of the clergy are sexual abusers of children! 1 out of every 10 representatives of God on earth, imagine the foul nature of that!

100,000 victims of clergy abuse have come forward in the US alone; 556 priests have been abusive in LA county alone. Long ago I read that 1 in every 5 boys and 1 in every 3 girls goes through sexual abuse during the first 12 yrs. Be wary, parents, tell your children that they should talk about inappropriate behaviour by adults so you can take action!

It is a shame that it does happen.
I studied in a missionary school and i know the chances of such things happening are very much present, and i escaped this with luck and dark skin i guess.

I know what you mean, we're blessed with our dark skin and escaped a lifetime of horror-filled memories. Other kids haven't been so lucky.
