So signed! What a travesty of justice that this is! Sadly there perhaps is so much more these and other nunneries are hiding worldwide. Every time I think the Catholic Church cannot hold any more evil secrets a new horror pops up. Was raised RCC and the new pope gave me hope, will decide when I see how he addresses and acts on this issue.

Another reason why having an official state religion is a bad idea. Sorry if I sound like a broken record, but I am not just appalled by this, I am appalled by where the US appears to be heading.

Fortunately, the Irish are leaving the Holy Roman Catholic Church in DROVES - as is happening thruout Europe and elsewhere. The Irish are severing their connection with an "official State Religion" bit by bit, and making Education for example more Secular, which is great!
There are SO MANY Atrocities and Horrors coming to light now - please let's not minimize them by calling them mere "Scandals"! - for instance, the actual TRAFFICKING of Irish Children by Nuns - SELLING the children to Rich Catholics, seizing them from Unwed Mothers who had no legal recourse - and, the unmarked GRAVEYARDS at Schools run by the Holy Roman Catholic Church for Native American children also forcibly seized from their parents... The Slave Labor of young girls at the Magdalen Laundries, to "punish" them sometimes for merely being "too pretty".....
Tell anyone you know to LEAVE THE HOLY ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH - it CAN'T change, and it is too late, they can't get away from their POISONOUS DOGMA which HATES WOMEN..... and children, and Gays.....

BMutiny, as a Roman Catholic, I find your comments INORDINATELY offensive. I will NEVER leave my church or my religion. And for what it's worth, there are PLENTY of loving, caring, decent priests, nuns and lay Catholics. How misguided you are. But that's what ZEAL does, doesn't it? It BLINDS you to the truth. So does HATRED.

@pisces rising - really? The truth does not hurt, it just makes people like you very uncomfortable! The actions of the RCC speaks for itself! The CONTINUAL practice of trying to hide pedophile priests? Instead of ousting or reporting them to the police, they moved them around to prey on more innocent children! Women are forced to forgo birth control or abortions but NOT hold equal footing with men. No restriction on Viagra however. The RCC is the largest real estate owner in the world, yet how many homeless centers do they have? Free schools for the poor? I was raised in Mexico and have seen the pillage and plunder the RCC did and continues to do to the indigenas/native Mexicanos! Or how about that whole anti-gay thing and the prior pope retiring with his 54 year assistant/lover and the $3,000.00 shoes? The litany of sins by the RCC is endless and though I was raised as an RCC it was not just the nuns or priest who turned me away from the RCC but the actions of the popes and cardinals. You know Cushing, Law, Spelling. Very, very few priests follow the teachings of Christ, if they did the RCC would be admired. If the truth offends you, MEA, MAXIMA, COLPA! VERITA!

Aurea, I feel very sad for you. At least I won't be the one who is afraid when death comes knocking at my door.

Aurea Aurea Walker (226)

@pisces rising - I do not fear death because I do not belong to the RCC. My modality of living is just fine, because I always try to do good acts and empower people. Do not need to go too church to be right with the god of the universe. However, interesting to see you go after me, not the facts I posted? Could it be because we both know the egregious acts the RCC has committed cannot be defended?
