The Many Sins of the Roman Catholic Church – Ireland Report

The shocking scale of sexual and physical abuse in educational institutions in Ireland run by the Catholic church was revealed today in a report describing how thousands of boys and girls were raped, abused and exploited by the religious brothers and nuns who were supposed to look after them.

The 2,600-page report by Ireland’s Commission to Inquire Into Child Abuse found that for decades rape was “endemic” in more than 250 Irish Catholic care institutions from the 1930s to the 1990s, and that the church in Ireland protected paedophiles in its ranks from arrest.

“A climate of fear, created by pervasive, excessive and arbitrary punishment, permeated most of the institutions and all those run for boys. Children lived with the daily terror of not knowing where the next beating was coming from,” it said.

Children in industrial schools and reformatories were treated more like convicts and slaves than people with human rights, it said. Rape was particularly common in boys homes and industrial schools run by the Christian Brothers.

  1. So exposing the truth is hateful, eh? I suspect this is the same line of reasoning church officials used in not stopping these atrocities.

    The undeniable filth of “Pederasty” has ancient roots in western civilization. Check out Wikipedia.

  2. During a working life of usually fifty years, the Catholic priest, etc, has to deny himself at all times of any sexual gratification, he must not have a girlfriend, nor flirt with women, nor harbour lustful thoughts. He must not develop a close friendship with anyone, and apart from God, he has no reward or consolation for his long working day, (he can be called at 5a.m. to attend a dying person, any night of the week.), he has to resist many temptations. The priest could have a far nicer life if he turned his back on the Church, but does not. A small minority of priests etc. seriously fail in the area of sexuality at some time during their life, but 95% of the time 95% are working only for the good of other people and to serve God.
    God will judge us for our love of Truth, our generosity, and our kindness towards those whom we could sneer at. It is better to light a candle than curse at the dark. Peace.

    1. I AM WITH YOU ON THAT LAST SENTENCE. MY HEART SAYS THAT, ALL WILL BE JUST FINE IF PEOPLE WOULD STOP TAKING MATTERS INTO THEIR OWN HANDS AND REFER TO OUR FATHER. IT DOESN’T MATTER IF THE SITUATION IS BAD OR GOOD TELL HIM ABOUT IT AND NO ONE ELSE. AS THE PROBLEMS OR SITUATIONS COME SPEAK THEM TO HIM. YOUR FEELINGS BEHIND THEM/ ABOUT THEM AND ALL. INCLUDE HIM IN ALL THAT YOU DO WILLINGLY/VOLUNTARILY. IF YOU DON’T LIKE GAYS, YOUR PARENTS, BLACKS, OR A CERTAIN RELIGION, ECT. THEN YOU BE BOLD ENOUGH TO TELL THEIR MAKER WHAT YOU DON’T LIKE, STEP ASIDE AND SHUT IT UP. LET OUR FATHER WORK. UNTIL WE GO TO OUR GREAT COUNSELOR, PHYSICIAN, TEACHER… NOTHING WILL GET BETTER. WE SHOULDN’T WAIT UNTIL THERE’S ONLY 1 MILLION OR LESS PEOPLE ON THIS EARTH BEFORE WE GET WITH IT. IT STARTS WITH YOU, ME, US… THIS IS WHY MICHEAL JACKSON SAID, ” I’M STARTING WITH THE MAN IN THE MIRROR I’M ASKIN HIM TO CHANGE “HIS” WAYS. AND NOT BE OUT IN THE WORLD BULLYING OR OPPRESSING PEOPLE INTO ‘MANS” WAY OF LIFE. BECAUSE APPARENTLY ITS BEEN DOWN RIGHT SUCKY SINCE BEFORE THEY TRIED TO KILL OUR KING JESUS. TRUTH CAN FEEL GOOD AND TRUTH CAN HURT, TRUTH CAN BE EYE OPENING,(THIS WHY THE SO CALLED AUTHORITY FIGURES DON’T WANT ANY OF US TO KNOW ANY TYPE OF TRUTH.) BUT UNDERSTANDING SHOULD BE THE CURE TO ILL FEEINGS BUT IF NOT THEN A PERSON SHOULD STAY VERY CLOSE TO GOD.

  3. I the son of God so jude the Church for there past crims agents humanity.
    As man so repes te fruit of his lifes works, so must this great whore also rep its fruit…
    It is time for this church to fall compleatly as if it could, it would kill all in the world whom apossees it, and if chanace come again it will again kill all the inosent children who have learned to think for them selves…

  4. Iowa Girl, this is most definitely NOT a hate site. The people who post here as well as article contributors seek to educate and inform about a variety of topics that pertain to us as human being. Give the site a chance.

  5. This is heartbreaking. As an Irish Catholic, I am discusted. To hurt children is the worst sin of all, may God take away the horrible memories from the victims. These priests and nuns should know better, God will judge them for their actions. At the end of the day we must remember that priests, nuns, rabbi’s, buddhist monks, etc are only human. They may work directly for God; however, they are still individuals with personal challenges. I refuse to label the Catholic/Christian faith by the actions of lost souls. The faith didn’t hurt these children, people hurt them. I pray that the Catholic church will restore itself to Biblical Christianity/Messianic Judaism! slanche-l’chaim
