For Sale: 300,000 Babies


I was processing some papers for a dear Irish friend the other day. As I was reviewing the documentation in her file, I was struck once again by how the Irish government (and people) handed over all responsibility for medicine, education, registering of marriages and even the methodology of births (see here for my post on that) to the Catholic church. Shame on my government, shame on the brainwashed people who believed so unquestioningly in this cult. That abused everyone around them through massive cover-ups of their paedophilia and their funnelling of billions of wealth gained from such government-funded enterprises to their leader in the Vatican. And don't get me started on their tax-exempt status around the world.

And if you tell me about missionary work I will tell you that the poor unfortunate children in Africa and other Third World countries do not have access to lawyers or to courts that will hear them.

I am exhausted from all the exposed corruption in the last while as are the rest of you, I am sure. But this latest about Catholic priests, nuns and doctors stealing and selling as many as 300,000 babies in Spain for eager adoptive couples made my already sickened heart retch again. For those sad deceived mothers (shown the same frozen infant's body over and over again to convince them their baby had died) and for those lost babies, growing up outside their country, cultures and families.

Is there no depth to the depravity to which this wretched and corrupt organization won't sink?

  1. Well, you know my opinion about organised religion and all the scandalous behaviour that goes on in its name. Stories like this just make me even more cynical.

  2. EVIL incarnate! I can't say I'm surprised though. And these are the things we know about - imagine what else there is - still unknown to all but a few.

    What staggers me more than anything is that for many cult victims it is business as usual. I said to a very priesty man that other day: what do you think of the selling babies scandal? And he said: now don't be talking about such things, it never happened in NL.
    ?!?!
    I give up.

    I agree, there is so much that has never been exposed, I heard scandals out of African from a "spoiled" missionary priest that would make the hair curl.
    It is horrific.

  5. My mother did a great thing for me. Although raised in the most pious of Catholic families, she rejected her religion and raised us as athiests.

  6. I have ceased to be shocked by anything that involves the catholic church. I feel nothing but disdain for the whole religion. I wonder when people will start leaving this church en masse?

  7. The more I read and hear, the more I realise my childhood gut instinct about the nuns and the church was right!

  8. The womb is the most powerful organ in the universe. Religion twigged to that long ago.

    :(

    I think it's already started, organized religion (thank Maude) is losing ground everywhere particularly in Ireland where scandal after scandal has rocked Catholicism to its foundations.
    good riddance.

    What a hero your mother is and what an incredible gift.
    More women would have spoken out if they hadn't been so dependent on the beneficence of the patriarchy back in the day. I saw/heard it in my own matriarchs.

    I can so relate to that, the discomfort I felt I've written about, snotty nosed boys on the altar and us females cast outside it. And on.
    The brainwashing was appalling.

  12. I can't imagine the pain that the parents and children are now going through :-( Another layer of monstrosity to add to the pile - how does anyone associated with the Catholic Church sleep at night?

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
