Reseña del editor
Coinciding with Pope Benedict XVIs state visit to the UK in September 2010. David Yallop, author of In God's Name, looks at the current news stories concerning widespread child abuse by priests and shows how the Vatican is not telling the full story.
Praise for In God's Name:
'A thriller without an ending...Yallop has surely proved there is a case to answer.' - Guardian
'An astonishing book...a story of corruption, lies and disinformation.' - Daily Mail
'Excellently done ... An engrossing and disturbing book' - EconomistVer Descripción del producto

As of 2015, of 781 priest pedophilia cases tried in the United States, courts determined that 694 of these cases involved the confessional.
This is not new news. The Vatican has been sweeping this one under the rug for decades.
For example, to quote the biography of the 33-day Pope John Paul I The Vatican Murders: The Life and Death of John Paul I (English Edition)
///////////// beginning of quote /////// In the spring of 1978, Cardinal Albino Luciani (John Paul I) of Venice criticized an American bishop for paying off the alleged victim of a pedophile priest:
“It would be better that we try our accused fellow servants in a court of law so that they can be cleared of any wrong doing and if found guilty they should pay their debt to society. It is not Mother Church’s business to pay their debt in cash, particularly to pay it with money intended for the poor. Besides, if we take no action to get at the truth, we will be endangering our children in the future.”
About the same time, he began a movement in the Church to raise the earliest age of confession to fourteen, reasoning that the great preponderance of sins confessed by children were sins of the flesh rendering them easy prey of pedophile priests.
Right-wing Vatican Cardinal Wright tabbed the Venice cardinal a “reckless liberal.” Wright claimed “children as early as seven experiment with their sexual bodies. It is imperative sinful behavior be curbed at an early age.” Something Albino Luciani did not believe was sinful in the first place. As he often told youth groups: “We have made of sex the greatest of sins, whereas, in itself, it is nothing more than human nature and not a sin at all.” ////////////////////end of quote//////////////////////
Priest pedophilia was a big problem in 1932 when Luciani had wrote a thesis on it: ‘II Pedophilia del Clero. The complete text of which is published in The Vatican Murders: The Life and Death of John Paul I (English Edition)
It’s sad that so many books concentrate of the results of problems instead of the causes. Perhaps because sensationalism sells more books?. More likely because they don’t know. Perhaps because they don’t really want to know. .
A real must-to-read book. Highly recommended.

age of six. I was not kneeling during a prayer at Church, but was looking around, and this Nun shoved me down on the floor real hard and
caused me to hit my head. I was crying during the Mass in Church, and my Dad did nothing. Needless to say, I am not a Catholic now!
This event occurred in the early sixties. This Book shows how Systemic child abuse was in this Faith, as well as its hidden corruption. 'A quote
from this Book says: 'IT SEEMS THAT WHEREVER ONE TURNS, NO MATTER WHICH COUNTRY ONE CONSIDERS, THERE IS SIGNIFICANT
EVIDENCE OF CLERICAL SEXUAL ABUSE..' The Title of this Book fits!
