Clergy abuse, physical abuse, sexual abuse and priest abuse even happens in Colorado. Sadly, physical abuse, sex abuse and clergy abuse can happen and has happened most anywhere. The victims are left with shattered self esteem and troubled lives, but there is help, and there can be justice. These aren’t random cases that happen to hapless victims you might never meet. Clergy abuse, child sexual abuse or priest or religious abuse could have happened to you or anyone you know, and it could happen anywhere in Colorado, by trusted and well respected Priests or church affiliated officials.
Take Harold Robert White, an ordained minister since 1960 who worked at 11 parishes for more than 30 years all over Colorado, from Sterling to Colorado Springs to Denver and Aspen. Over two dozen boys and a young girl over a twenty year period accused the Priest of multiple cases of sexual abuse and sexual misconduct. The Denver archdiocese was fully aware of these allegations as they were told on multiple occasions, yet White continued to serve the church, they just moved him to a different town where he could cause more damage. This practice has gone on far too long, and it’s time for the archdiocese and all other religious child sex abusers to pay the price for the damage that they have done.
