3. ugh. terrible.

"She said allegations also included sexual abuse by older children, visiting priests, employees and in one instance a nun."

And it's been going on for DECADES. Just like the abuse here in the states. I have been in the Milwaukee area my whole life so the abuses and cover ups here are very well known. The stories told about the things that happened at St John's School for the Deaf in "Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence In The House of God" have rocked me to the core.

I will never ever ever understand how anyone with a conscience can keep supporting the RCC - let alone putting them on some fucking pedestal.
