Their findings, according to a six-month crusade via the 'Spotlight' investigative staff, confirmed that enormous quantities of kids in Boston were abused by means of Catholic monks, and that this terrible development of behaviour were identified - and missed - via the Catholic Church. rather than holding the group it was once intended to serve, the Church exploited its robust effect to guard itself from scandal - and blameless kids paid the price.
This is the tale from starting to finish: the predatory males who exploited the weak, the cabal of senior Church officers who coated up their crimes, the 'hush money' used to shop for the victims' silence, the survivors who chanced on the energy to inform their tale, and the Catholics the world over who have been left stunned, indignant, and betrayed. this is often the tale, too, of ways they took energy again, faced their Church and known as for sweeping change.
Spotlight – Segredos Revelados conta as descobertas da genuine investigação feita por um grupo de corajosos jornalistas, ganhadores do Prêmio Pulitzer em 2003, que denunciaram uma sucessão de abusos sexuais, obrigando a Igreja Católica a prestar contas. Em janeiro de 2002, o jornal The Boston Globe publicou uma série de reportagens que chocou o mundo. Centenas de crianças em Boston foram molestadas sexualmente por padres – certos de sua impunidade, eles agiam com o aval das autoridades religiosas, que acobertaram seus crimes por décadas. As reportagens revelaram a obscena quantia gasta pela Igreja Católica com acordos para comprar o silêncio das vítimas cujas vidas foram devastadas por pedófilos que vestiam hábito e tinham o Pai Nosso na ponta da língua. A denúncia abalou as estruturas da Igreja Católica e deixou milhões de fiéis no mundo inteiro estarrecidos, furiosos e indignados: a instituição que deveria servir e proteger a comunidade usou sua poderosa influência para se resguardar do escândalo.
