An independent probe into the Catholic Church’s sexual-abuse scandals suggests that French clergy have abused more than 200,000 children on an unprecedented scale for 70 years, until as late as 2016.
French clergy sexually abused more than 200,000 children over the past 70 years, a major investigation into the Catholic Church found. Most of the victims were boys aged between 10 and 13.
Catholic priests, church employees and volunteers in France sexually abused approximately 330,000 minors since 1950, according to an investigation.
What people are saying?
Lal Silva Wherever clergy is allowed a free hand with trust, to handle children they will abuse! It is more than normal public, because religions restrict their clergy from natural sex practices. Whenever it happens, in societies, more sex crimes rise. More suppression more crimes!
Seth Brown That’s almost 3000 children a year. Ban the church and end the violence. The molestation of children needs to end and we need to break the cycle now.
P for Pancetta It really makes sense when you pair the whole rampant child molestation thing with the whole anti-abortion thing. It’s two halves of the same scheme.
