Release of secret church files shows widespread abuse of children in Los Angeles

Hundreds of pages of secret church files were released yesterday by religious orders documenting that a dozen of their priests, brothers and nuns were accused of sexually abusing children while working in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles. Several dozen more files are expected to be released this Fall.  This is part of the wave of evidence that is sweeping over the country and around the world -- it is becoming a tsunami that will crush the walls of secrecy that the church has build around itself.  I am sure we will see many other cases where the church's crimes against children will be exposed for all to judge.
