"Thanks to the conscience and good works of Catherine Corless, the remains of 802 children, from newborns to three-year-olds, were found in a disused septic tank. They were discarded there between 1925 and 1961, shedding a light on a nationwide system of religious abuse."
"How women were treated by the Catholic Church in Ireland – with the tacit collusion of the state – serves as a painful reminder that, while, since Monday, they may be allowed to serve on the church altar by decree of Pope Francis, they remain as outsiders.
In August 2018, the Pope had an opportunity to make real amends to the women of Ireland, to the victims who suffered at the hands of his Church, and the little dead children whose mortal remains were tossed into a septic tank as their final resting place, by visiting the site of the former home the nefarious deeds of which were uncovered by Corless." He didn't.

This is just the tip of the iceberg, over the centuries the RC Church has committed a holocaust against so called sinners and "heathens" (especially those who also happen to be women the very source of sin) that should make the world tremble in rage and unleash a fury like no other before it, and yet every time another atrocity comes to light, the world shrugs its collective shoulders and say "oh well they're not like that anymore" against all the evidence that they are and will continue to be so, so long the pontiff of Rome is treated with the respect due only to democratically elected world leaders.
The Catholic Church is a barbaric, misogynistic, not to mention perverted organization. Incredible how anti-abortion they are, yet kill unwed mothers and their children once they are born. I honestly don't know how anyone, any human being, is a part of this church anymore. After all the heinous evil that has come from this church, how does it even exist anymore?
When I first learned of the Madgalene Laundries and the atrocities committed in them I was stunned, then piecing together unspoken bits from my father's catholic side of the family I found out that his twin sister had been sent to one to have her first baby and that afterwards her mother told her she should marry the first man who would take her as she was spoiled goods. Luckily she married a lovely man who cared deeply for his family worked hard and provided well for them. Also very musical and I remember him from all of the nights he played Beatle songs as well as some oldies with my Grandfather and Father and eventually my brother and his son joining in. The music gene gave me a wide berth.
The same grandmother who HAD to marry my grandfather due to the fact she had gotten pregnant with my father and his twin, and who had a priest stand at the end of her bed after the birth of my uncle (he had juvenile cataracts and was blind in one eye) and told her this was god's punishment for conceiving children out of wedlock.
Now atrocities by the catholic cult no longer surprise me and I no longer expect them to acknowledge nor make reparations as they are soulless and evil to the core.
