With this expose, The Boston Globe aims to present the single most comprehensive account of the cover-ups, hush money and emotional manipulation used by the Catholic Church to keep its long history of sexual abuse secret. The case of Father John Geoghan, who has been sentenced to 10 years in prison and whose 130 victims have been awarded $30 million, has dominated news headlines. The newspaper maintains that the 2000 related civil suits pending against the Church are just the tip of the iceberg.
