In 1975 a young man made a statement to the Catholic Church to inform them that he had been abused – that is sexually assaulted on more that one occasion by one of their priests. He also reported that other children were also being abused by the same priest. He was as much concerned for them as he was for himself.

My mother is Jewish...very non-practicing (closet Atheist), my father claims Buddhist (I still say closet Atheist.)
