The Sacred Secret: Child Sex Abuse Within the Faith Community
This program contains three stories about the shattering results of sexual abuse involving the church. Shana was sexually abused by her father for a two year period starting at age 12. Her family had been actively involved in their church and her father served in a leadership position. After the abuse was disclosed her parents divorced, and she and her mother were labeled "rebellious" by their church for not being able to forgive and forget. Tim, a minister who has dealt with sexual abuse in his church, then encourages church leaders to take a totally different approach by supporting survivors and holding offenders accountable.

Middle-aged David discloses for the first time that as a teenager a priest raped him. He describes the difficulties he has experienced throughout his life as a result this sexual abuse and the relief he felt when he was able to talk about it.

Ed, a former priest now in prison for sexually abusing children entrusted to his care and protection, shares his powerful story, which reinforces the actions the church and authorities must take to deal with this continuing problem.
