    This woman suffered abuses by a church leader and started the #ChurchToo hashtag.

    This is horrific and a lot of churches assault children! Don’t send your children alone to church!! In fact, don’t go!

    Take the priest and put bullets in their knees and leave them to die in the dessert.

    These must be the evil results of making lawful things unlawful and vice-versa... Celibacy = Evil desires put into evil actions

    No surprice but hearing victims of these monsters is always a huge shock. Im certain that this case is just a tiniest example of what is really going on in every Church. And i wonder why the hell parents are still sending their children in these places !?

    How are people still Catholic? How is that organization still in business? The donations have facilitated abuse.

    The religious are gullible people who are easy to manipulate, predators know this and so the flock becomes easy pickings.

    I would like to see our country stand up and demand the Catholic Church pull its archbishops, close down its cathedrals, shut down its local presence and leave the country. I would like to see our country confiscate the funds the Catholic Church is holding in this country and hold the money in trust until the Catholic Church accedes to our demands that no child abuser ever be permitted in this country, that the requirement for celibacy of nuns and priests be eliminated, that all clergy who work with children must pass a screening and face regular review, and the church has an open process of discussing pedophilia, sexual and mental abuse with both its clergy and the church members, especially children. Treat this organization like any other country that has done repeated, systemic and covert harm to many of our citizens.
