New Book Unholy Silence by ex-catholic priest

Father Kevin Lee has published a book "Unholy Silence"

He says this is about his time in the church in Australia and all the coverups and abuse that he has seen, I haven't read it as yet,so I have no idea about the content, but it seems timely. He says he has a few unkind words for Cardinal Pell, and is publishing the book offshore. I image there are quite a few people with unkind words for Pell, but I don't think making the book only available via the web and published outside Australia will be much help

I am a bit concerned about his claim he forced the creation of a Royal Commission in to the Abuse of Children, because as far as I can tell it was mainly the work recently of Detective Peter Fox coming forward to allege his investigations have been stymied by senior police and politicians.

In one interview a few days ago he quotes:-

"Even in the dormitory I lived in, it was nicknamed 'The AIDS Wing' because there was a belief that a lot of the people living there were going to get AIDS because they were just so promiscuous," he said.

The book is available at  http://unholysilence.com/  and he blogs at  http://fatherkevinlee.blogspot.com.au
