Irelands Shame? Shocking Child Abuse  Scandal of the Roman Catholic Church.

"THE GREATEST CAUSE OF ATHEISM IS, CHRISTIANS WHO PROFESS CHRIST WITH THEIR LIPS BUT THE HEART IS FAR FROM IT."
 

    Thousands of children were worked like slaves without proper food or clothing. The Christian Brothers, Nunns, teachers and older children physically, emotionally, and sexually abused them. The most vulnerable were subject to the most vile attacks.

    This does not describe some Dickenesque poorhouse or African labor camp. This describes religious schools in Ireland in the 20th century, run by the Roman Catholic Church.
    A nine-year investigation by Irelands Commission to Inquire Into Child Abuse was published finally last year. The damning five-volume report took into account evidence from 2,500 individuals who suffered abuse in reformatories, industrial schools and orphanages run by Catholic religious orders.

    Irelands commission proved the disturbing facts what most denied for so long. Whats worse, this abuse took place with the full knowledge and backing of the Irish government and the Vatican. The whole time, the Catholic Church and the religious orders knew exactly what was going on, but they covered it up.

    Many Adult Survivors (scattered around the World) are still fighting for Justice. They are elderly, Mentally/Physically infirm and traumatized. Some are Homeless, Sick, and have been treated with such contempt, resistence, and denial that, in it's self, is another form of Abuse.

    Please show Survivors who were failed so badly, that we do recognize their pain, please do all you can to help. Invite Members/Friends to join and of course, please sign our Petitions to seek Justice from the Irish State.
