All eyes will turn to Rome between 21-24 February, when senior church clerics across the world meet to discuss how to handle the widening sexual abuse crisis in the Catholic Church. Until recently, this has been focused on the abuse of children. But now Pope Francis has admitted – for the first time – sexual abuse by priests against religious women exists and must be acknowledged.

And Catholic women are speaking out, under the #NunsToo hashtag.

Twenty-five years ago, Irish nun, Maura O'Donohue prepared an extensive report for the Vatican on the abuse of nuns internationally by priests. Her report was based on information supplied by priests, doctors and others, and she had been assured records existed for several of the incidents. But the report was covered up.http://theconversation.com/the-catholic-church-is-headed-for-another-sex-abuse-scandal-as-nunstoo-speak-up-111539?fbclid=IwAR33zUCdzJ_J_x_khfhym8JZiL2_wHeUyInd8hLBr1uLOkeunHW-gELrlEs

It's a good thing that the nuns who have been abused are speaking up now. This issue should be out in the open for everyone to know and acknowledge. Abuse can happen everywhere even in a place that we considered sacred.

Plenty of Protestant rape cases as well though, and they allow pastors to get married.

I'd be surprised if there's protestant nun-rape though.

Everyone knows that protestants prefer kiddy rape over nun rape.

Like Catholics then?

Some convents used to be pretty much church brothels, hence the (by then mostly outdated) allusion in Hamlet which had lingered in English slang.

Its a good idea if you have a never ending supply of victims. The Catholic church has always hidden its best kept dirty secrets until now. It has always been a institution of sexual debauchery that even facilitated the abuse of victims by the elites in our society. There were and still are a real criminal enterprise that seems to want to be forgiven for every crime that they commit.
