‘Behind Sacred Walls’ tells one man’s story of being raped by priests DAVID TAFFET | Senior Staff Writertaffet@dallasvoice.com Michael Roberts comes from a religious Catholic family that never missed Sunday mass.

And like hundreds of other boys who have come forward, he was abused by the priest at his church. But Roberts’ story of abuse by Catholic priests is a little different from others.

He was a little older than most victims we’ve heard about; he was 17 when he was first raped. But, Roberts explains, he was a young and naïve 17 with no sexual experience.
