[b] Despite [/b]the horrific systematic abuse of children revealed by the Ferns, Ryan and Murphy reports most of the 26 dioceses of the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland have still not been fully investigated. The victims of the Magdalene Laundries have not even been included in any compensation scheme. Victims of clerical child rape and torture called to give evidence before the Redress scheme could only do so after signing a gagging order. People whom as children were illegally incarcerated and abused for years have still not had their criminal records expunged. The Vatican has treated both the State and the victims as almost minor irritants. Bishops involved in the cover up have refused to resign. During the revelations of this scandal the Roman Catholic Church introduced the concept of “mental reservation”: when the Catholic Church tells lies it’s not telling lies it’s just not telling the truth as ordinary mortals might understand the term.
The religious perpetrators of this abuse were guaranteed anonymity before the Ryan commission after a legal action by the Christian brothers.
If you can contribute anything at all, time, money, skill or just a pair of marching feet…….
