    Survivors accuse Catholic church and police of 'covering up' decades of child sexual abuse

    Just one conviction.

    All covered up by a sinister religious organisation that allowed its members to fuck kids.

    Another former student described being raped by a PE teacher, and being beaten regularly after reporting the attack to the nuns, who accused him of lying.
    *********************************************************************
    It has since been reported that a complaint had been made against Tolkien in 1968, when he told Boy Scouts to strip naked.

    The church sent him for “treatment” - but no formal action was taken and he continued working.

    The hearing heard yesterday that when a number of Tolkien’s alleged victims came forward in the early 2000s, Cardinal Vincent Nichols, former Archbishop of Birmingham and now of Westminster, told a lawyer acting for the church that he would “prefer not to disclose” the 1968 complaint.
    *******************************************************************************
    “He said I’d been chosen - it was between me, him and Jesus,” he said.

    “Then he said I needed to take my trousers down and kneel in the prayer position, and keep my eyes closed, and my hands together.

    “Then he took my underwear down.”
    *****************************************************************************************************


    And yet Tommy Robinson was not protesting about this. Neither were any of his bonehead followers. No outrage threads on here either.

    Are these victims not important ?

    Of course they are.

    The reason that robinson and the other trash are not interested is that the perps were not "darkies".

    As an eductaed adult I can read that report and feel revulsion. But I also understand that not all catholic priests, let alone catholics, are predators. Its just a tiny minority.

    Could that be the case in other communities with similar issues ?

    Left Wingers are very strange.
    They try to defend Islamic Rape Gangs by attacking Christians.

    One could write a book...and undoubtedly many books have been written and continue to be written.

    But a couple of quick thoughts:

    In these cases, money solves nothing. It is, in fact, an attempt to enrich oneself solely for the purpose of enrichment.

    How "just" is it to take money from innocent Believers and insurance companies in order to enrich victims who have suffered no economic harm? (The perpetrators are generally "judgment proof").

    How much of this whole mess is anti-Catholic bigotry and hate, masquerading as moral outrage?

    From what I can see its pretty much some individuals in the church abusing their power. That can happen in any religion or institution. The anger may stem from the way that the church has dealt with it. The catholic church is not a victim here.

    The thing is that nobody is suggesting that all catholics are kiddy fiddlers. And nor should they. Only uneducated pigs would think that way.

    Studies have shown the offend rate by priests is in line with all professions...around 4%.

    The problem is the coverup and should have never happened.

    With that said there is a current epidemic of abuse going on in education that for some reason is being largely ignored outside of groups demanding action on it. Why is that?

    The thing is tht you are safer in school than you are in church. Although neither outcome gives comfort.

    That isnt the issue here though. The issue is the double standards emplloyed when considering the crimes of low educated taxi drivers and highly educated and well connected priests. Its just racism and ignorance.

    Among every hundred men who choose to work with kids, there are 4 or 5, on average, who are in it to sexually victimize the kids. It would be nice if one could say that the Church is better at weeding them out, but one must never forget that the perps take great pains NOT to be weeded out.

    The pity of the church's actions is that they (we) are the victims of our own belief. To wit, we believe that sinners can, by the grace of God, commit to "sin no more," and amend their lives. Thus, when an offender confesses his sins to the Bishop and makes a "good Act of Contrition," in the Bishop's mind the problem is solved.

    IN NO CASE does any Bishop re-assign a priest with the expectation that the behavior will be repeated. EVERY SI GLE TIME, even against all logic, the Bishop believes that the conduct will not recur.

    It was only after decades of failure that the Church finally got the message that this behavior never stops until opportunity is permanently removed.

    Homosexuality has nothing to do with it; nor does celibacy.
