“They won’t tell us what the worst part is because they simply don’t want us to know,” a spokesperson for Zero Abuse Project said.
Advocates of child sexual abuse victims and survivors themselves reacted Friday to the recent independent review revealing the abuse of victims from Catholic priests in Colorado. The report released Wednesday said at least 166 children were sexually abused by 43 priests since 1950.
“They won’t tell us what the worst part is because they simply don’t want us to know,” said Joelle Casteix, a founding member of the board of directors for Zero Abuse Project. “We don’t know who the abusers are because the church won’t tell us, the Olympics won’t tell us, the Boy Scouts won’t tell us.”
