Sexual Abuse is in the DNA of Catholic Church – ABC News / Lateline

27 February 2013

Former monk and priest, and now advocate for victims of sexual abuse within the Catholic Church, Patrick J Wall, says sexual abuse of children has been part of the culture of the Catholic Church as far back as 60 AD and despite constant attempts by the Popes to curtain the problem, it has never been snuffed out.

Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:

Abuse by nuns recognized less often

Update: Tuesday 22 April 2014, 12:33

Sexual abuse within the Roman Catholic Church by women is recognized relatively less often than abuse by men. The commission for reporting sexual abuse within the Roman Catholic Church received a total of 59 complaints. In 8 of the 22 completed cases so far, the complaint was upheld.

Half of all cases involved just one perpetrator. The hotline says that makes it more difficult to decide in these cases. Among the victims were not only boys and girls but also other nuns.

Given the large number of women in the church, they have caused relatively few casualties, said the hotline.

WOMEN ABUSED BY NUNS SPEAK UP Stories about nuns being the perpetrators of sexual violence have largely been lost in a new wave of accountability within the Roman Catholic church. Although abuse allegations against “women religious” are rarer than allegations against priests or monks, survivors of nun abuse who have spoken out are convinced that there are more stories out there.
