thanks to reader kalyani.
this appears to be the most comprehensive US grand jury indictment of a catholic parish's pedophilia, coverups and eventual outing of widespread, endemic sexual crimes.
almost unbelievable, well worth archiving.
these are the people who want to teach morals to indians?
these are the respected 'holy fathers' that the indian media and governments are so fawning and obsequious about?
a whole lot of this sort of crime goes on in india but is hushed up. the sister abhaya case where a nun was found drowned in the well of a convent in kerala, is only the tip of the iceberg. when i was in school, one father k was defrocked for sexual abuse of schoolboys. i remember him vividly.
yes, i went to jesuit school, so i have seen the beast up close and personal. and no, i don't feel in the least bit grateful to jesuits, partly because they actively discriminated against me. but there were several lay teachers i liked, and the poor old wheezing principal too and a couple of the priests were good guys.
