‘Spotlight’ Exposes Child Sex Abuse in Catholic Church, Wins Oscar For Best Picture February 29, 2016

Spotlight,” a powerful film exploring the widespread sexual abuse of children by Catholic priests, wins big at the  2016 Academy Awards.

The movie, which chronicles the Boston Globe’s explosive investigation into child sex abuse by Catholic priests, won best picture.The film also won best original screenplay.

Spotlight” documents the true story of how the Boston Globe uncovered a massive scandal of child molestation and cover-up within the local Catholic Archdiocese, shaking the entire Catholic Church to its core, and exposing the profound immorality of the corrupt institution.

Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, and Rachel McAdams lead a critically acclaimed cast in this gripping true story about the Pulitzer Prize-winning investigation that uncovered the scandal that rocked the Catholic Church.

Speaking on stage at the awards ceremony, producer Michael Sugar said:

This film gave a voice to survivors. And this film amplifies that voice, which we hope will become a choir that will resonate all the way to the Vatican.

Pope Francis, it is time to protect the children…

However, the sad fact is, Pope Francis is not protecting children, and the Catholic church continues to protect pedophile priests who rape and sexually abuse children.

Earlier this month, in a disturbing revelation, a newly released Catholic church document informs bishops they don’t have to report accusations of clerical child abuse to the police.

Bottom line: “Spotlight is a moving look into the decades-long cover-up of child abuse within the Catholic Church, and a fantastic story about the power of investigative journalism.
