  •  I'd have to search I do remember it was from (8+ / 0-)

    several journalist based in South Africa. They took old reports of girls and boys who had exorcism performed on them, or who were committed by their family to convents and had psychologist look at them (without revealing who they were). A large number of them came back as showing classic signs of sexual abuse. A large common factor was that they had gained special attention by a local priest at around the time of their "acting out". I remember seeing the report air on TV once during the height of the US priest abuse scandal and I then looked it up online.

    I know I have the linked archived someone, but beyond that I can't remember too much more.

    -1.63/ -1.49 "Speaking truth to power" (with snark of course)!
