Subject: RE: BS: Clerical abuse of kids: More Revelations
In Scotland there have been as many reports of non-sexual abuse of children by nuns in orphanages - violent and degrading abuses of power.

My wife was talking to a nun she knew about this a while back. That nun actually wanted to be one. She thought that most the sadistic behaviour came from conscripts - women who were forced into becoming nuns by their families, which happened fairly often among the Catholic bourgeoisie until about a generation ago. They spent their entire adult lives resenting the situation they'd been forced into and making sure that as many people as possible suffered for it.
