The seven-page sexual abuse questionnaire is stark.

Three lines are provided to name Roman Catholic clergy accused of raping or molesting a child at a parish within the Archdiocese of Santa Fe. There are five lines to write an account of alleged assaults, many dating back decades. Another three are available to describe the sites where the incidents occurred. And three more lines are there to list the physical, emotional or mental suffering caused by the purported abuse in childhood.
