    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/jan/12/ireland-report-appalling-abuse-mother-baby-homes
    Extract:
    Ireland has ripped back the veil on a dark historical chapter that condemned tens of thousands of unmarried mothers and their babies to callousness and cruelty in institutions run by both the state and the Catholic church.

    A judicial commission of investigation published a long-awaited 2,865-page report into a network of “mother and baby homes” that inflicted abuse and shame – with the complicity of wider society – for much of the 20th century.


    This is just one example of the evil wrought by the RCC, and not just - but especially - in Ireland. From the persecution of gay people, to taking away control from women of their own bodies, to the rape of children, this must be the most evil and corrupt institution.

    People knew that such things were going on yet they did nothing to stop it. So, the people themselves were evil.

    I read this yesterday and was of course disgusted by what happened. It just goes to show that for many of the religious they do not care what happens to the "born" child just the "unborn"!

    Hard to give credence to any religious organization that perpetrates and covers up these appalling Crimes Against Humanity.

    The problem this is NOT an aberration but the norm. Crimes like these happened worldwide. We are just looking at the tip of the iceberg here.
