Thread Name: BS: Clerical abuse of kids: More Revelations
Subject: RE: BS: Clerical abuse of kids: More Revelations
"It happens everywhere, so why not in churches?"
The 'divine' power of the church reaches far beyond that of any secular organisation so any attempts at comparison are totally irrelevant
One of the effects of revelations such as these has been to loosen the once almost unassailable power of the church - the last battle appears to be over the Church's continuing control over childrens' minds via the education system - hopefully that will be sorted out this year
If church supporters haven't realised the damage being done by the church's intransigence and evasion the destruction of their church will be down to them

To my knowledge, the rape and sexual abuse of nuns has never been raised as an issue publicly - if it had been it would have exploded as violently as has clerical child abuse and Magdalene slavery   
An at least "thirty year old" cover-up, it would appear
When will they ever learn ?
