Remember that the biggest danger for a Crusader is evil speaking. That means to speak poorly of others. Especially when it’s about a superior. That is why if any of you have any reason to suspect or accuse a Crusader of Christ, you could only tell it to a superior. Otherwise, you face falling into the worst of all sins. This sin is the most obscene of all. And goes against the Spirit of Christ. Which is why we must abhor it. That is why we must detest it.” -A priest telling the new students at a Catholic seminary school not to tattletale on others. And so the manipulation begins so these priests can more easily sexually abuse these boys who think they are going to school to serve Jesus, but little do they know what they really signed up for…

Perfect Obedience is a film about a Catholic priest who is sexually abusing the boys in the seminary he is in charge of, and the other priests who not only allow this abuse to happen, but also help it along. And what surprised me when I watched this emotionally powerful movie was that I found myself seething with anger at what I was witnessing on my TV screen. I was just so fucking pissed that I almost couldn’t stand to watch this beautiful film from an amazing filmmaker, Luis Urquiza, who directed and co-wrote Perfect Obedience.
