Abuse report – at a glance


Abuse report – at a glance

from the link: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/northern_ireland/8059973.stm

The Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse was established in 2000 to investigate allegations of abuse at Catholic-run children’s institutions in Ireland.

The main findings were:

  • Physical and emotional abuse and neglect were features of the institutions.
  • Sexual abuse occurred in many of them, particularly boys’ institutions.
  • Schools were run in a severe, regimented manner that imposed unreasonable and oppressive discipline on children and even on staff.
  • Children were frequently hungry and food was inadequate, inedible and badly prepared in many schools.
  • Many witnesses spoke of being constantly fearful or terrified, which impeded their emotional development and impacted on every aspect of their life in the institution.
  • Prolonged, excessive beatings with implements intended to cause maximum pain occurred with the knowledge of senior staff.
  • There was constant criticism and verbal abuse and children were told they were worthless.
  • Some children lost their sense of identity and kinship, which was never recovered.
  • Absconders were severely beaten, at times publicly. Some had their heads shaved and were humiliated.
  • Inspectors, on their occasional visits, rarely spoke to the children in the institutions.

About victimsofrapebythercc

The Catechism offers a clear moral teaching: "Rape is the forcible violation of the sexual intimacy of another person. It does injury to justice and charity. Rape deeply wounds the respect, freedom, and physical and moral integrity to which every person has a right. It causes grave damage that can mark the victim for life. It is always an intrinsically evil act. Graver still is the rape of children committed by parents (incest) or those responsible for the education of the children entrusted to them." (no. 2356) Note that rape is "an intrinsically evil act," meaning that it is evil at its very root, nothing justifies it, and it is objectively a mortal sin. An evil act was done against me, a crime, by a priest at St Thomas More Parish in Durham, NH. An evil and a crime I will no longer keep silent about. Those who perpetrate crimes against children, especially those of the Roman Catholic Church, should all be punished for their crimes against children. Anything less would be criminal.

  1. This is absolutely disgusting.

    I and my family are now leaving the Roman Catholic Church. We cannot in good conscious support this evil.

  2. Blessings on you Frank LaFerriere for finally opening our eyes.
