This is my first attempt to open a new thread, so I hope I'm getting it right.
This article in yesterday's Indo intrigued me and I wonder why no one here seems to have mentioned it.
It does, however, raise the question of whether religious have more to cover up for than "only" beatings and rape. I believe it is high time for our Government to grow a real pair and just seize every document and record belonging to the church and the religious orders as far back as St. Patrick if needs be. Enough already with the impudent legalistic posturing of the Papal Nuncio and those Medieval mandarins in Rome. If the religious have not committed any crimes, they have nothing to fear.
