Spotlight or the power of investigative journalism

"It's very hard to say no to God," explains the victim of a "paedophile" priest, interviewed by a journalist from the Boston Globe as part of the Spotlight investigation team, which gives the title to Tom McCarthy's film released in US-theatres this January 27th, 2016 and which can be seen all around the globe.
An impeccable Hollywoodian  film that recreates as closely as possible the investigation led by these journalists on a very sensitive issue: the protection offered for thirty years by the Cardinal Archbishop of Boston, Bernard Law, to the priests of his diocese, perpetrators of sexual abuse of children. If in 2003 the Spotlight journalists obtained the Pulitzer Prize for their investigation, the film about their feat has won 9 awards to date, starting with the Oscar for best film, and will certainly obtain others, at the next Cannes Festival, for instance.

The "civilized" world, which is so shocked by the primitive barbarism of "Jihad alnnikah" [gender jihad] of the "Islamic State" is struggling to confront his own turpitude, such as those misnamed paedophile priests. Paedophile means "someone who loves children"; however, those priests who abuse children, boys and girls, ranging from fondling to rape sometimes followed by murder, do not do it because they love children, but only because they know they can take advantage of the weak and vulnerable. These predators are paedocriminals, period! SNAP [Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests], the association of victims of abuse by priests, now has over 12,000 members in 56 countries, which gives an idea of the scale of the phenomenon, which has nothing marginal about it.
