The appropriate time to abolish the Catholic School System was in 1867, but the next best time is now.


“It is inconceivable that Canada and the Holy See would leave such heinous crimes unaccounted for and without full redress” The final quote in the article makes me wonder how out of touch this person is with all the atrocities of the church even in the last few years. They haven’t acknowledged the rampant rape and sexual abuse by priest and their role in letting it continue, the Ireland abuse scandal and the laundries. What makes this person think the pope/Vatican will do anything different in this case?


It’s crazy to me how if the church catches a person stealing some money from collections, they turn them over to the police and prosecute. But when their own employees and representatives torture, rape, molest, and murder children, they ignore it or cover it up. Don’t Catholics see a HUGE problem with this??


Unless most of the people working in those schools were imported to do the job, I’m pretty sure it’s on Canada to take the blame.


>”As a Catholic, I am deeply disappointed by the decision that the Catholic Church has taken now and over the past many years,” the prime minister said during a news conference today. What a religious moron. Years in power and has done nothing for these communities.
