Thread Name: BS: Clerical abuse of kids: More Revelations
Subject: RE: BS: Clerical abuse of kids: More Revelations
Popes and bishops deliberately covered up the crimes, and still refer to "sin" and "mistakes" and the like. Here's a graph of how sexual abuser clerics were moved from one place to another (to where they found new victims) in Ireland alone.

It is not alone the rapes and sexual assaults and bullying that were the crime. It is the fact that an organisation conspired to hide these crimes, and to shelter the criminals, while terrifying the victims into silence. The Catholic Church in Ireland (and in many places) is a criminal organisation, whose influence has been malign.
