TV. Exposed the Church's darkest secret

Anyone see this series? It seems the church hierarchy was complicit in allowing sexual abuse by the clergy. I have always felt uncomfortable around the clergy years ago and these programs just confirm my fears.
Even Prince Charles favoured Peter Ball the worst abuser.

Ray.

The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. http://raynipper.com

Nothing new in that Ray, it’s been known and reported on for years. The highest echelons of the church covered it up and just moved on those that were brought to their attention, allowing them to continue the abuse with new flocks.

Just one notorious example........

There are mutterings, now, of the church dropping their celibacy ruling and allowing priests to be married. It is about time! There is absolutely no excuse for this behaviour but it would not be so widespread if the church could replace these men with happily married priests. No guarantees of course but less likely.

I guess those with abusive tendencies will always worm their way into children's confidences like boys clubs, schools, church and even hospitals like Saville.

What church/religion are you referring to Pat?

Suspect it's the one headed by a Pope.

Retired Pope Benedict warns Francis against relaxing priestly celibacy rules https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-51086626

You probably mean the Roman Catholic Church


The Church of England considers itself to be a Catholic Church and in its Creed has the words 'One Catholic and Apostolic Church'.


I think Orthodox Churches have similar, but I do not speak Russian, Serbian or Greek so am not sure.

Ray.
Whilst priests are often the reported culprits within the church, the cruelty was widespread. Nuns played a particularly active part in the abuse of mothers and their children in the churches Magdalene Laundry business.
