... Not Just L.A., The City of Angels Is Everywhere...

I was age five when the bishop stood over me and said, "Stop babbling about what the priest did to you." Then, forty years later... I started babbling.

Posted re No Victims Wanted to Talk to CNN...?

BeliefNet asked the CNN Producer of What the Pope Knew:

JWK: Were the victims eager to talk with you?
TUCHMAN: Not eager.

Not eager??? Here is more:

T: As you saw in the documentary, there were some 200 deaf boys who were molested as children. One of the deaf men just decided to file a suit. It was painful for him. He was anonymous when he filed the suit. He was ashamed. Here's a grown man who had never been able to hear. He could barely speak. His life had been hell. And, all of a sudden, he feels like he is doing something to his life that is extremely valuable. He's filing suit because he's found out about these documents too and he realized nothing was done when it could have been done.

I posted this comment just now:

There are aboout a hundred thousand victims of Pedophile priests and a lot of us want to talk. Why didn't CNN look for us? Read City of Angels Blog for coverage of these crimes by a journalist who is also a victim- and who wants to see more of this story in mainstream about how far ranging these crimes were. Every archdiocese in the USA had pedophiles for decades.

Read the interview part 2 at beliefnet

ALSO POSTED at What the Pope Knew at Popes and Papacy blog, another Ebeling comment:

There are at least a hundred thousand victims of pedophile priests living as damaged adults in the USA today, yet CNN says they could not find victims to interview? New statistics are rising as documents are ordered released by Courts in the USA and Europe. Bishop Accountablity now says ten percent - 10% - of priests were pedophiles on average in American dioceses. The number of pedophile priests found so far in the USA is 10,969 and counting also per BA. I cover these crimes and find one reader at a time, get no support from the church or "advocacy groups" posting at as a victim of these crimes who is also a journalist. I reported on the new statistics, a case from 1999 settled in L.A., a brochure from a pedophile priest treatment center in the 1950s, and NONE of this information makes it to mainstream media.
