In Behind Sacred Walls, Michael Roberts tells the compelling story of how he was abused by Catholic priests. His story tells not only how he was abused by a priest for several years, but also how the Catholic Church turned its back on him when he finally reported the abuse. A naïve teen, he was sexually and emotionally dominated by the priest who was revered by his family and parishioners. Fear kept Roberts emotionally paralyzed. He feared hurting his parents, who were devout Catholics. He feared God. Most of all, he feared the wrath of the priest who demanded his obedience.
