My views are:
Some of you are probably throughly aware of the following serious issue.
Yet I would like to notify you about it, so that you are made aware of the issue just in case.
Please take due note of the Catholic Orders investigated at the bottom article.
I dare ask: Is it just the tip of the Iceberg? Is Church of England next?
My heart goes out to the victims...and the insane people involved.
*******BBC: Irish church knew abuse 'endemic' *******
An inquiry into child abuse at Catholic institutions in Ireland has found church leaders knew that sexual abuse was "endemic" in boys' institutions.
"The leader of the Catholic Church in Ireland, Cardinal Sean Brady, said he was "profoundly sorry and deeply ashamed that children suffered in such awful ways in these institutions".
It has devastated me and will devastate most victims because there are no criminal proceedings and no accountability whatsoever.
"This report makes it clear that great wrong and hurt were caused to some of the most vulnerable children in our society," he said.
"It documents a shameful catalogue of cruelty: neglect, physical, sexual and emotional abuse, perpetrated against children."
The five-volume study concluded that church officials encouraged ritual beatings and consistently shielded their orders' paedophiles from arrest amid a "culture of self-serving secrecy".
It also found that government inspectors failed to stop the chronic beatings, rapes and humiliation.
The findings will not be used for criminal prosecutions - in part because the Christian Brothers successfully sued the commission in 2004 to keep the identities of all of its members, dead or alive, unnamed in the report.
No real names, whether of victims or perpetrators, appear in the final document. "
