Dutch government inspectors were aware in the 1950’s that the Catholic Church was castrating young boys and doing it without informing parents…and surely against the boys wishes.
Young boys were being sexually abused by Catholic priests and if they complained to authorities they were involuntarily placed in Catholic run psychiatric institutions and castrated to ‘help’ their homosexual feelings or behavior.
A committee was set up by the Catholic Church itself in 2010 when the abuse scandal broke. It is said to have identified some 800 priests and monks in the Netherlands who were actively abusing children in a 40 year period from 1945 to 1985.
Among other things it found was that church officials, bishops, and lay people were aware of the evil going on in the church and church institutions, but failed to take action
This committee is now under fire for glossing over many incidents and not giving proper weight to the allegations and incidences. One politician involved in the original inspection, Vic Marijnen, was even elected as prime minister of the Netherlands in the 1963.
This politician had tried to get charges dropped against several Catholic priests accused of child sexual abuse.
So again we have the ‘universal church’ showing just how holy and spiritual the Christian religion really is. Apologists for the Church say it’s not the church, but the humans involved. However it has been proven that this crap is known by all members of the organization all the way up to the Pope and they all try to wiggle out from under any responsibility, and hide it as much as possible. This Church is evil from top to bottom (talking church executives, priests, bishops, etc…not congregations) and why any moral and righteous citizen would want to listen to or join with these evil people is beyond me.
The Catholic Church has a very long history of murder and assassinations, priestly misconduct, slave holding, Popes having mistresses and little boy companions, priestly homosexual pimping for the hierarchy, in short they are the least compliant to the supposed will of God of all the Christian denominations.
They are currently behind the American Republican parties assault on women’s right to control their own sexuality, reproduction, and bodies. In attempts to control African reproduction, the Pope lies about the effectiveness of condoms in controlling the spread of AIDS.
Polls have consistently found that 90% or more American Catholics use birth control in defiance of Catholic dogma…I suppose the Pope is worried that there won’t be enough little Catholic babies to take up the slack. Catholics are responsible, at least in part, for the overpopulation of the earth.
They are evil..from beginning times to now.
