A Priest's Response to 'Spotlight'

An unlikely early Christmas present,  Father Peter Daly's National Catholic Reporter article, "Watching and Responding to 'Spotlight'" came to my attention today.

Father Daly shares his response to the movie and veers into Our Lady of Vilnius territory by suggesting a sequel to 'Spotlight" titled 'Fallout':
"As good as the movie is it tells only the first part of a continuing story. There is a need for a follow-up movie to tell the story of the enormous payouts of cash and huge settlements to victims, the stonewalling of many bishops, and the bankruptcy of eight U.S. dioceses. That movie could also tell about the many people who have stopped going to church and parish after parish has closed."
Josh Singer and Tom McCarthy, please take note
