Historical Institutional Abuse Inquiry will examine allegations of abuse at 16 church and state-run care homes across Northern Ireland Children allegedly humiliated, sexually abused and physically assaulted They were 'assaulted with sticks, straps and kettle flexes, forced to bathe in disinfectant, beaten for wetting the bed and locked in cupboards'
The investigation into the behaviour of Catholic nuns from the Sisters of Nazareth children's homes in Londonderry, Northern Ireland, heard children were also forced to bathe in disinfectant and were beaten for wetting the bed.
Forty-nine former residents of the Nazareth House Children's Home and St Joseph's Home, Termonbacca in Derry, have given evidence, describing their treatment at the hands of the nuns to the inquiry sitting at Banbridge courthouse.
A total of 16 church and state-run care homes are being investigated as part of the inquiry presided over by retired judge Sir Anthony Hart, and is expected to run until June next year.
After watching a film called called the sisters of Magdalene, where girls were abused in a religious laundry house, is the day i lost faith in religion altogether. People are being sent insane literally and i can't even believe this is still going on. Only in Ireland though eh. They really do need to wake up.
Can I hope that those wicked nuns will be sent to jail for a long time. A clear message needs to be sent.

i guess everyone is just lying then, again! It must be so frustrating for members of the catholic church to be accused of these crimes, consistently. I almost feel sorry for them!
We do have to remember not to lump all Catholic Nuns into this group though. The daily mail is good at making it seem like isolated cases are the norm, they care more about profit than the actually stories.

Out of the hundreds of children I came in contact with over the years most if not all had been victims of abuse in some way or another during some part of their lives. I have seen and heard so many things that will haunt me till the day I die... It's really sad. It amazes me that some people are able to deny such atrocities or try to explain them away and label them as impossibilities. You have no idea... None at all.

These types of crimes should not be presented to derive enjoyment - seems like you enjoy it too much
But the reality is that we see these crimes in the news every day and from all demographics
Benedict XVI defrocked nearly 400 priests in two years
Catholic Church abuse scandals Germany - A priest, named only as Andreas L, admitted in 2012 to 280 counts of sexual abuse involving three boys over a decade United States - Revelations about abuses in the 1990s by two Boston priests, Paul Shanley and John Geoghan, caused public outrage Belgium - The bishop of Bruges, Roger Vangheluwe, resigned in April 2010 after admitting that he had sexually abused a boy for years Italy - The Catholic Church in Italy admitted in 2010 that about 100 cases of paedophile priests had been reported over 10 years Ireland - A report in 2009 found that sexual and psychological abuse was "endemic" in Catholic-run industrial schools and orphanages for most of the 20th century
