luuuuv in action: Thousands beaten, raped in christist schools in ireland

may 20th, 2009
i once posted here a report about an irish film on the abuse and torure of girls in reform schools. i thought that was ancient history. but no, this has been going on until pretty recently.
i wonder when there will be a similar expose of what goes on today in numerous nunneries in kerala. you know, the place where sister abhaya was beaten over the head with an axe because she happened on a godwoman bonking two godmen simultaneously in the kitchen.
god's little brides. or something like that. yeah, right.
how about ratzy being charged with crimes against humanity? abuse of 30,000 people is pretty serious stuff.

Thousands beaten, raped in Irish reform schools
Associated Press
May 20, 2009
DUBLIN – A fiercely debated, nine-year investigation into Ireland's Roman Catholic-run institutions says priests and nuns terrorized thousands of boys and girls in workhouse-style schools for decades — and government inspectors failed to stop the chronic beatings, rapes and humiliation.
 High Court Justice Sean Ryan on Wednesday unveiled the 2,600-page final report of Ireland's Commission to Inquire Into Child Abuse, which is based on testimony from thousands of former students and officials from more than 250 church-run institutions.
 More than 30,000 children deemed to be petty thieves, truants or from dysfunctional families — a category that often included unmarried mothers — were sent to Ireland's austere network of industrial schools, reformatories, orphanages and hostels from the 1930s until the last church-run facilities shut in the 1990s.
