One thing that the Irish Inquiry has highlighted is the desperate & expensive lengths, the Catholic Church will go to shield, priests and nuns from prosecution.
Even before the shocking results of the Irish Church scandal were made public, The Catholic Church was callously protecting its own, from justice.
In 2004 The Congregation of Christian Brothers, from Ireland successfully sued the Commission to prevent its members being named in the report.
The Congregation of Christian Brothers as it turns out in the report, were guilty of more excess’s than any other functionary.
Using an analogy, The Irish Christian Brothers were the equivalent of Hitler’s SS, callously abusing innocent victims – all of which are children entrusted into their care.
The difference of course was this wasn’t a war, even if the crimes are strikingly similar in their barbarism, and the complicit German SS troops, concentration guards etc got to face justice at the end of WW2.
Not one of the low-life Irish Priests or Nuns, guilty of their own ‘crimes against humanity’ will face cross-examination and punishment for their deplorable actions.
I am calling on all of those who feel repulsed, these criminals will continue their cosy-‘feet-up’ lives, courtesy of The Catholic Church, to contact their local Christian Brothers organisation and tell them directly - it’s time they lived-up to their name.
Time, for The Christian Brothers gave justice to their thousands of victims.
Time, they handed-over the hundreds of priests, they know damn well were guilty of child abuse.
Here’s that worldwide list of who to contact.
