Lead Us Not Into Temptation: Catholic Priests and the Sexual Abuse of Children
Winner of a Religious Public Relations Council Wilbur Award and a Catholic Press Association Book Award
Jason Berry's Lead Us Not into Temptation put a national spotlight on the issue of clergy sex abuse of children and has been used in newsrooms across the country. Berry takes us through the lives of traumatized victims and their parents, torn by loyalty to the church, into the machinations of bishops and church lawyers. At root, this is a story about politics, how sexual conflicts within clerical culture have compromised the power structure of the church. This new paperback edition of Berry's investigation includes an updated introduction that takes the scandal into the Vatican.

It sure appears that Jason's outrage towards sex abuse is selective. When a psychologist for SNAP, Dr. Steve Taylor, was arrested on 107 counts of sick kiddie porn, Jason Berry actually wrote a letter on the pervy doc's behalf. In fact, Berry also admitted, "I'd do it again."
What if Dr. Taylor were a Catholic priest?
This book smells like anti-Catholicism.
