The Post yesterday printed a revealing profile of freelance writer Jason Berry, whose reporting in the 1980s provided the first deep look at what would become the international clergy sex abuse scandal. Still a believer, still going to church and still reporting on the church's dark secrets, Berry explains to the interviewer why he stays. It was on Berry's initial reporting that NCR based its earliest coverage of the sex abuse scandal. The first story appeared in June, 1985. His latest book, Render Unto Rome: The Secret Life of Money in the Catholic Church, examines how money flows through church structures with little accountability for how it's collected and how it's used.
