The Christian Brothers knew they could get away with it. Read more:

Today I read an article from last year, but I bring an excerpt from it here, because “The child abuse by Catholic priests was sickening” and “Depravity of the most unspeakable kind.”

So here the excerpt:

 

The child abuse by Catholic priests was sickening. The fact they acted without shame is terrifying.

The Christian Brothers knew they could get away with it.

All this is good, but it cannot wipe out the horror of the abuse that has already taken place in some parts of the world, especially among the clergy and religious of the United States and Ireland. The children sent to Australia from British institutions with the promise of a new and better life suffered terribly there at the hands of Ireland's Christian Brothers. The 1998 report of a House of Commons select committee contains this unbearable passage: "Those of us who heard the account of a man who as a boy was a particular favourite of some Christian Brothers at Tardun [Western Australia] who competed as to who could rape him 100 times first, his account of being in terrible pain, bleeding and bewildered, trying to beat his own eyes so they would cease to be blue as the Brothers liked his blue eyes, or being forced to masturbate animals, or being held upside down over a well and threatened in case he ever told, will never forget it."

What is so terrifying is that there was nothing furtive or guilty about the Brothers' behaviour. They would seem not only to have turned against their original Christian vocation but to have collectively embraced depravity of the most unspeakable kind and without even any sense of shame.

 

Now this happened in Australia, a country that hardly can be call a Catholic country. And there these criminals knew they could get away with it. What really happens in the Catholic Church can be imagined by this information and with what kind of criminal acts Catholic priests get away in Catholic countries one can also imagine. “Depravity of the most unspeakable kind.”
