Why have we heard nothing about nuns being sexually assaulted by priests before this?
It's outrageous that these complaints have been filed for decades with no response.
#MeToo #TimesUp
Cardinal #McCarrick spent SIXTY YEARS in a position to assault teens and young seminarians. The culture of protection of these abusive clergy has not ended. Pope Francis has not done nearly enough to help those who've been abused nor to punish the abusers.
Nuns have been used as "safe" for priests to sexually use and abuse, particularly in countries in Africa where #AIDS is rampant.
Priests who reported the abuse were sanctioned by the Church.
Nuns are always in a position of subservience to priests.…
When nuns reported being raped, prrests claimed THEY were the victims.
“They (the priests)can always say ‘she wanted it,’” Demasure said. “It is also difficult to get rid of the opinion that it is always the woman who seduces the man, and not vice versa.”…
Women are the backbone of both the Church and the religious. We are denied the priesthood and any kind of meaningful positions of power within the Church hierarchy. Now it's revealed nuns are also being victimized by priests.
