That is a great find, my man. Keep up the good work. Unfortunately the fact of religious/clergy abuse is rather common, and not limited to foreign countries either. This theory is proved again by this legal document from Alaska. I responded to a story in the Anchorage Daily News and a portion of my response is below. Another responder to the story and my post in Alaska provided me with this link. Part of my abuse as a child was at the hands of people who were given far too much trust because of their religious involvement.

The sexual victimization of boys, and drug or alcohol abuse and suicide amongst its many victims is a difficult subject, but not a new one. Here in the Lower 48 there has been increasing awareness of this subject over some years now, and there are some resources available to survivors. Two well-written books on the subject authored by pioneering therapists were written almost 20 years ago. ABUSED BOYS was written by Dr. Mic Hunter out of St. Paul, MN, and VICTIMS NO LONGER was written by well known therapist Mike Lew. In addition there is a recognized survivor support site at: www.malesurvivor.org, which is run by survivors, for survivors.

There is hope through the recovery process. Together we can find our freedom.
