(CNN) -- The Archdiocese of Dublin and other Catholic Church authorities in Ireland covered up clerical child abuse until the mid-1990s, according to a government-commissioned report released Thursday.
The Dublin Archdiocese Commission of Investigation's 720-page report said that it has "no doubt that clerical child sexual abuse was covered up" from January 1975 to May 2004, the time covered by the report.
"The Dublin Archdiocese's pre-occupations in dealing with cases of child sexual abuse, at least until the mid 1990s, were the maintenance of secrecy, the avoidance of scandal, the protection of the reputation of the Church, and the preservation of its assets," the report said.
"The welfare of children, which should have been the first priority, was not even a factor to be considered in the early stages," it said.
"Instead the focus was on the avoidance of scandal and the preservation of the good name, status and assets of the institution and of what the institution regarded as its most important members -- the priests."Fuente y la noticia completa: http://edition.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/eu...use/index.htmlThe commission examined the histories of 46 priests, who were picked as a sample from 102 who had had complaints or suspicions of child abuse raised against them. Complaints from more than 320 children were leveled against the 46, the report said.
But it said that the number of children abused likely exceeded that.
"One priest admitted to sexually abusing over 100 children, while another accepted that he had abused on a fortnightly basis during the currency of his ministry which lasted for over 25 years," the report said.
El tema de los abusos de menores por sacerdotes no es nada nuevo, pero que se halla conseguido probar que la estructura de iglesia catolica ha encubierto estos abusos por decadas es un dato importante... hay que ver en que va a quedar esto, pero yo pienso que podria desencadenar investigaciones serias en varias partes del mundo.
en mi caso, cada vez que veo a un monaguillo pienso "pobre pibe, debe tener el culo como una cacerola"
porque creo que el celibato impuesto por la iglesia a los curas es la principal causa de estos abusos.... los tipos tiene la leche al nivel de los ojos y agarran lo primero que tienen a mano para desahogarse... y lo primero a mano son los monaguillos...
espero que la gente se de cuenta de una vez por todas que la iglesia es una estructura completamente decadente y que en la actualidad ya no tiene sentido...
