Announcing Report: “Beyond Bad Apples: Understanding Clergy Perpetrated Sexual Abuse as a Structural Problem and Cultivating Strategies for Change”

08/15/2022 1:09 AM | Paul J. Schutz

Dear CTSA Colleagues,

Julie Hanlon Rubio (JSTB/JSTSCU) and I are happy to announce the release of “Beyond Bad Apples: Understanding Clergy Perpetrated Sexual Abuse as a Structural Problem and Cultivating Strategies for Change.” Part of Fordham University’s Taking Responsibility project, this study synthesizes research on clericalism, structural theory, and sexual violence with data from an original survey of nearly 300 professional lay ministers on sex, gender, power, clericalism, and clergy perpetrated sexual abuse. We hope you’ll consider reading and sharing the report.

We pray that our work will contribute to a reduction in sexual violence in the Church and a future free from the challenges of clericalism. 

With gratitude,
Paul Schutz & Julie Rubio
