SOUL MURDER God Priest and Me

BySara Atman

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
'SOUL MURDER God Priest and Me' is a compelling account of adult clergy sex abuse and the denial and cover-up over 4 decades by the Catholic Church et al. Through sheer determination 'Sara' was instrumental in finally bringing about the priest's expulsion. By this time he was 80 yrs old! Clergy sex abuse is more than an abuse of trust; it is more than a crime. It is SOUL MURDER. Soul Murder is a betrayal by God and by clergy - God's representative. This type of abuse challenges faith and forces victims to ask: Does a God of love really exist? Sara's struggles with this profound betrayal weave through the story in the form of 'God Conversations' that take her on a roller-coaster jouney towards healing. The genuine quest for answers and the need to apportion blame are expressed in a powerful way - ironically, hopefully, despairingly and tongue-in-cheek. The book also addresses the issue of enforced celibacy and its consequences: repression, emotonal immaturity etc.
