Why Doesn't Dan Brown Write About Shit Like This?

Out of Dublin, Ireland comes this report that's over 70 years in the making of thousands of Irish children being raped, sodomized, beaten and humiliated by priests and nuns. It's a 2600-page report that reads like a cross between Dickens and NAMBLA's manifesto.

An investigation conducted by tax-sponsored schools produced a five volume report conclusively proving not only priests that ran reform schools and orphanages regularly abused these children but that the Roman Catholic Church knew about it and did nothing for decades. In fact, many of them were actively shielded from investigations and were moved to other venues where they were allowed to freely indulge in abusing more children.

Sort of the same thing we saw here in the Boston area but on possibly a much more massive scale.

Amazingly, the report failed to name the names of any of the abusers and church officials when questioned even had the nerve to say... Well, I'll let the AP article speak for itself:
But when questioned, their leaders indicated they would continue to protect the identities of clergy accused of abuse — men and women who were never reported to police, and were instead permitted to change jobs and keep harming children.

Thereby putting a new twist on the phrase "recovering Catholic."

For years, I've been an avowed enemy of the Roman Catholic Church, surely a matriarchal religion dressed up in men's clothes, whereby effeminate priests lord it over helpless children and refuse to allow women to attend seminaries.

Like any good Republican organization, they are quick to brand the victims as avaricious liars while their own ranks are filled with child molesters and Nazis and will go to extraordinary lengths to deny their crimes or the crimes of their brethren, allowing them to continue gratifying their perversions.

Why there are over a billion idiots who still seriously entertain this megacult is absolutely beyond me as it is run without a doubt by the most assbackwards, out-of-touch, inflexible sexist assholes the world has ever known. It's perhaps no surprise that they list among their most vocal apologists slavering, ecumenical junk yard dogs like Bill O'Reilly and Wild Bill Donohue of the Catholic League, both of whom will no doubt be quick to denounce teh gays for infiltrating their beloved, party hat-wearing megacult.

And people of other religions marvel at the Catholic propensity for guilt and why they're so adept at living with it.

Good to see you back, JP!
I've missed your rants.
What can I say about today's post? It's one more sick thing we are forced to acknowledge and powerless to do anything about.
Fear and cowardice have led us to accept torture, secrecy and lies.
Those who should be in prison for high crimes and treason sre giving speeches and raising money. Those who should be unholding our Constitution and our values are running scared. The guilty cover their tracks with yet another layer of threats and lies and dare us to stop them. And who will hold them accountable? The Invertebrate Party of harry reid? Uh, no. All Mr. Cave-in has done is to reinstate the bush plan of asking us to believe six impossible things before breakfast. Ditto for the Catholic Church.

I've posted as alwayshope but I'm thinking of changing that to WTF?

Get all of the gay men and women out of the church...can't you just see those tumbleweeds blowing all over the Piazza San Pietro? ...and maybe a swinging door on a rusty squeaking hinge?

My mother went to Catholic schools in NY her whole life. Even as an adult, she told us with fear in her voice how cruel the nuns were to the children. She would never allow any of us to go to Catholic school. Only now I understand why. We grew up in Wakefield Mass and my older brothers were altar boys. I thank God we had a decent priest! It could have easily went the other way.
