Sexual abuse of minors is a crime enabled by silence. Victims are ashamed. Witnesses are reluctant to come forward. Institutions fail to act. The cover-up can be so thick that it requires piercing determination to expose the truth. Despite sporadic headlines, we still have enormous gaps in our knowledge about the concealment that took place over decades. Although the church has paid out over two billion dollars to settle claims, U.S. courts have convicted only one senior church official for his role in covering up these crimes. Increasingly, other countries are discovering their own dark secrets.
