Slavoj Zizek, quote from 'The Fragile Absolute: or, Why is the Christian Legacy Worth Fighting For':
"As the experience of our post-political liberal-permissive society amply demonstrates, human Rights are ultimately, at their core, simply Rights to violate the Ten Commandments. 'The right to privacy' - the right to adultery, in secret, where no one sees me or has the right to probe my life. 'The right to pursue happiness and to possess private property' - the right to steal (to exploit others). 'Freedom of the press and of the expression of opinion' - the right to lie. 'The right of free citizens to possess weapons' - the right to kill. And, ultimately, 'freedom of religious belief' - the right to worship false gods."

Alex Gibney explores the charged issue of pedophilia in the Catholic Church, following a trail from the first known protest against clerical sexual abuse in the United States and all the way to the Vatican.
Excerpt from an interview with Alex Gibney: "I was raised Catholic. And I do hope that what Catholics take away from it is an understanding of the corruption of the hierarchy, which is very different than any kind of attack on the faith. I think what this film does is show what happens to institutions when they become so convinced of their own goodness that they imagine that they can do no wrong; because child abusers don't just exist in the Catholic Church. What all these institutions seem to have in common is the concept that reputation of the institution outweighs even the damage that it does to small children."

Excerpt from an article written by Amy Berg in The Huffington Post: "I am the director and producer of the film 'Deliver Us from Evil the Movie', a documentary about a pedophile priest (Oliver O'Grady) who was protected from justice for over 25 years by the Catholic Church under the direct eye of Los Angeles Cardinal Roger Mahony. I have spent the past four years investigating this story as a journalist (at KCBS News and CNN Investigations), and have written and produced numerous stories documenting church cover-up and blatant manipulation of parishioners and innocent Catholic families."
