Not sure if there's already a thread on this, but the IFTA-Award winning documentary about child sexual abuse in the Catholic Church is currently premiering on TV3. It details the experience of deaf children in a special school in Milwaukee - unrelentingly grim but a powerful experience.

I don't know if I could take anymore.

No doubt I'd let someone have the next time they start prevaricating re: the RCC abuse scandal.

They behaved criminally and abysmally in every parish around the world where child abuse reared it's head.

I think I'll be better off not knowing the gory details of this particular set of circumstances.

It really would be worth watching.

Only because it suits your anti-Catholic agenda. This stuff is like heroin to you.
Informing oneself of the facts is no crime, Rem. Though concealing them (at least in this matter) doesn't seem to be either.

That crowd are a bunch of sick puppies and that excuse of a human being is still allowed to be head of that organisation in this Country. What does say about us as a people?

I no longer have the stomach for these horror stories.
Would just love to have the RCC removed from anything involving kids all over the world.

It's clear from this documentary that the Vatican is a hostile & corrupt foreign power with whom all diplomatic ties should be severed immediately & all its vile sinister organs forcibly disbanded & expelled permanently.

Moreover, the Vatican should be brought before the ICC as soon as possible.

Don't shoot the messenger.

Do you think it right that JPII protected a serial sexual criminal just because he raised millions for the Church?

The same patterns seem to be prevalent in Italy too, according to this documentary. I'm going to guess that these patterns of abuse and omerta were prevalent in all Catholic countries.

As a contributor just said, people don't grow up there, or join a Vatican Army, or play for their soccer team. It is questionable as to whether it should be still allowed to function as a State.

There are no Vaticanians.

Never forget and never let them forget it. Oh, and none of that NT forgiveness stuff for them either.

Very interesting. I totally believe them when they say there will be more scandals involving South America, Africa and India.
