Catholic Child Abuse Scandal hits Ireland

For years the Catholic Church in Ireland has held that country in an icy grip.

Gay people have been treated like second class citizens. And women even worse.

Ireland’s abortion laws are among the most restrictive in Europe – amongst the most restrictive of all developed nations. Under Irish law a woman can risk life imprisonment for pursuing an elective abortion within the State, unless the pregnancy risks the mother’s life, or she is suicidal as a result of it.

So why am I not surprised by this horror?

The five-volume study concluded that church officials encouraged ritual beatings and consistently shielded their orders' paedophiles from arrest amid a "culture of self-serving secrecy".

It also found that government inspectors failed to stop the chronic beatings, rapes and humiliation.

Just sickened. The poor little children.

Punish every last one of these cruel bully monsters. And every government inspector who looked the other way.

Don't let them get away with it.

Make abortion legal TOMORROW.

Keep these religious perverts away from kids....

Hi JJ... you know I knew that abortion was a problem in Ireland, but I thought they had taken a couple of steps forward. So when I looked it up I couldn't believe that women are still being forced to leave their own country to get an abortion. It's absolutely OUTRAGEOUS. I can only hope that this latest scandal will rock Ireland to its foundations, and loosen the deathly grip of the Catholic Church.
Because it's about time...
