ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

This book would never have materialized without the inspiration provided by the courageous work of the investigative Spotlight Team of The Boston Globe. Their work broke through the fortress of clerical denial that protected sexual abusers. It exposed the horror inflicted on unnumbered innocent minors and their families. Their service is lasting. No research studies could have generated the education they have provided to a nation that cares for its youth. Their challenge to moral leadership has inspired us all to rededicate our efforts to explaining the corruptibility of a culture-celibacy-that is capable of such tremendous good.

The sustaining friendship of a number of people who fight for the integrity of the celibate system, by holding its members accountable, has been indispensable to my spirit: Kelly Clark, John Manly, Sylvia Demarest, Lynn Cadigan and Kim Williamson along with Mike Rezendes are among those I owe the biggest debt of gratitude.

The editorial staff of Brunner-Routledge-George Zimmar and Shannon Vargo-along with Associate Publicist, Tooraj Kavoussi, have given me sound advice and warm support. I hope that the tone of the book reflects their spirit. Mick Spillane and T.J. Mancini are the best production team I have ever worked with. Marge Nelson has
