Abuse scandal in the US church: ProPublica publishes documentation © Victor Moussa (shutterstock)
The U.S. church has promised transparency in dealing with abuse. In fact, documentation on "credible suspects" is incomplete and flawed, according to the nonprofit organization ProPublica.
Larry Giacalone carried his dark secret for more than four decades. Just three years ago, it filed a lawsuit. Former Boston priest Richard Donahue allegedly sexually assaulted him in 1976. The abuse case of the then-twelve-year-old never ended up in court; however, the archdiocese compensated Giacalone for his "physical and emotional injuries" with 73.000 dollars.
