New Report To Show Shocking Findings On Abuse In Church

May 17, 2009

Ireland (ChattahBox) – The Catholic Church is being forced to face the demons of their recent past, as two full reports looking into the scope of child abuse in the area are set to be released.

Thousands of former school children of Catholic schools in Ireland have come forwards, with horrible tales of sexual, physical, and emotional abuse within the walls of these institutions. The Church will be called to answer for those allegations, as well as their practice of moving pedophiles to new parishes, where they would abuse again, sometimes for years on end.

“We had people talk to us about hearing screams… the screams of children in the night coming from these buildings and really not knowing what to do. They didn’t know to whom they could complain because the power in the town was the religious order running the institution,” Mary Raftery (shown above), a documentary film maker who’s work sparked the investigation told the BBC.
