'Spotlight' tells the story 'The Boston Globe' revealed

Anyone who has seen the film Spotlight will know exactly who it was who did such damage to the Catholic Church in Boston.

'The Boston Globe' has to be complimented for its expose.

The cheek, the crassness, the arrogance, the awful behaviour of senior clerics is told in simple and real words in 'Spotlight', which tells the story of the work 'The Boston Globe' did in exposing clerical child sex abuse in the diocese of Boston.

The conniving, 'the club mentality' and that sense that 'we know best' is cleverly expressed.

It's embarrassing to hear anyone, but especially senior church officials, blame the media and politicians for the demise of church practice.

The arrogance, stupidity too.
