The Philadelphia District Attorney released the report of the three year grand jury investigation of the clergy sexual abuse scandal in the Philadelphia archdiocese. The report gives a detailed analysis of how the Philadelphia archdiocese covered up sexual abuse by priests, and then moved the priests to knowingly allow them to continue to sexually abuse children, while protecting the church from scandal and lawsuits.
