Belgium’s Catholic Church exposed as little more than a toddler-fucking pedophile ring

“There have been some articles that imply that pedophilia is nowhere so little prevalent as in the Church as say other areas of society” (The former Bishop of Bruges, Roger Vangheluwe 19th April 2010)

Harrowing & sickening details of decades of sexual abuse by Roman Catholic clergy in Belgium have been released by Church investigators.

Dubbed The Adriaenssens Report after the chief investigator, Peter Adriaenssen, its pages contain a litany of sadistic treatment - in short -mass child-sex-abuse:

* Child abuse was so extensive that it was going on in almost every diocese and at every Church-run boarding school in Belgium. The investigators were overwhelmed with reports and what they produced was only 'the tip of the iceberg.'

* The priests almost exclusively enjoyed molesting pre-pubescent boys. Assaults on boys usually ended by their 15th year.

* Toddlers were considered ‘fair game’. Girls as young as two were raped.

* The worst of the abuse was in the 60’s and 70’s and its decrease in later decades was only down to fewer priests being involved in the education system.

* The Bishop of Bruges, Roger Vangheluwe, was in on the score. He kept his known abuse closer to home by raping his nephew. The Church tried to bribe the victim’s family to keep them quiet.

* When confronted with overwhelming evidence of this mass-abuse the Church tried to cover it up and Police were forced to break into Church offices to locate records. The Church employed lawyers to fight this seizure and won a case for the raids to be considered illegal – thus successfully burying the true scale of their crimes.

* 13 known victims were so traumatised by their abuse they later committed suicide.

* The Vatican knew what was going-on and left them to it.

How do Catholic apologists respond to facts like this?

By saying these cases were isolated and no worse than the rest of society?

Well that’s the same erroneous and vacuous excuse given by the incestuous pedophile who was in charge of the Church when these crimes against humanity were being perpetrated.

It’s time for society to lance this septic boil once and for-all.
