Even the Salvation Army in Australia is... something something... Kukabura wings.

Jesus. shiat you read like this makes you realize how utterly horrifying it must have been to be in any sort of church child care in the 1960s, or before that. The Irish Catholic Church just released a similar report about orphanages they ran in the 1960s and it was just as bad.

Horrifying stories. Truly horrifying.

They can shove those bells up their asses. I never donate to them anymore after reading about all their anti-gay bullsh*t.

I've read some shocking articles on Fark and I feel like I'm fairly jaded but this has to be one of the worst. Maybe it's the softie in me but I cannot begin to imagine torturing adults in that manner. Children? Unthinkable. Those stories sound like something from a movie.

Is it too soon for Enema of the People jokes?

Sorry. Wicked bad black humour, I know,   mea culpa, mea maxima culpa, but pretty inevitable when you are talking about somebody sticking a hose up some poor Child of God's rectum. You know what would be a better joke? Sending the guilty parties to prison. The prisoners will know what to do when they get there.

A few of them may accidentally impale themselves on shower nozzles as is the wont of the unpopular prisoners in even the best run of prisons.

I'm gonna reserve my outrage until I read the full report... For all we know that quote could have been taken out of context.

Is it wrong that after reading your comment then checking your handle my Co workers are looking at me wierd.

Happens whenever kids are in religious boarding schools. Ever since I learned about rampant abuse in all the Indian boarding schools in the US, regardless of the sect running it, I have expected the same result from every boarding school and group home in existence. So far I have only seen confirmation over the years.

Aka the Torquemada Fallacy, the thing that explains how devotees of Gods that their scriptures  claim to be beings of pure love who want universal brotherhood, are capable of the most savage and horrific acts of violence.  What's a little destruction of the temporary human envelope, if you save the immortal soul in the process?

I am waiting for some  Al-qaeda connected Imam to formally declare that anyone killed by a terror attack or jihaddist also technically qualifies as a "martyr for the faith" and therefore also gets the deluxe heavenly accommodations with the hot and cold running virgins.    It'd be a perfect way to assuage the guilt of your would be holy warriors and convince them they are actually doing their victims a favor

My MIL is a tough as nails Dutch woman, and she regularly refers to everyone around her as "pussies", usually while holding something dead in her hand. She never hugs anyone, never says "I love you", even though we all know she does.
That type. Anyway, the one time she told me about the convent, where they sent her and her sister (who died there) after the war...that was the only time I ever saw that woman shake, like tears might be a possibility. She then got up, told me I was a pussy for caring and went to go find something heavy to do.

The places they send/sent children...god damn. why the fark??? She figured it as simply people who didn't want to do that job having no other choices and then taking it out on the ones in their care, in the case of the nuns. Sadistic, evil biatches, she called them. She said that Christ, in that place, was a sarcastic reference. She never believed in God again, because of those nuns (she said she was grateful to them for that).

Yea, at least no one ate their children's eyes this time :/

I'll be walking around for a while if anyone's looking for me.

The real tragedy is that the entire western world is so used to the idea of a religious institution horrifically abusing children, this link will probably only get 60 comments, if that many.

Ho hum...
Whatever...

Comment quantity is a measure of how entertaining it is to comment on a topic, not how serious the subject matter is.

2014-01-28 02:07:50 PM
Oh, Christians abusing children again? What a shock. It's almost like if you build an organization on the premise of "if you feel guilty as hell about something, come to us and Magic Sky Guy will fix you" but Magic Sky Guy never actually delivers, you would then be left with an organization just chocked full of untreated people who had something to feel really guilty about.

Our oldest didn't move out of the house until he was 26.  So, while these punishments seems a little harsh, I have to wonder if maybe if we didn't maybe.....

I think it's the other way around.  If you believe that a non believer is going to be punished by god for eternity there is nothing wrong with doing any horrific thing to the non believer that you want.  Your doing god's work, afterall.  The terrorist attacks are not directed at people who share the terrorist's beliefs and the terrorists are true believers therefore they can do what ever they want to those that do not think like they do.  It is a supremacist way of thinking.

The worst perpetrators are dead. Why don't these things come to light any sooner? Why are they allowed to live out their lives in relative comfort while their victims live in hidden desperation?

"The Salvos" here in Australia very much keep the preachin' and moralisin' to themselves. All they seem to care about is helping the poor and homeless. You pretty much have to remind yourself that the Salvation Army have strong Christian roots.

And as a charity who actively seeks donations from the public.. no Red Cross dodgy dealings that I can recall.
[ Red Cross Australia has apologised to victims of the Bali bombing and donors to its fund-raising campaign for misleading them over where the money would be spent.  http://www.theage.com.au/articles/2003/05/22/1053585646417.html ]

When ya plonk that $20 in the tin you really feel it is going to be used correctly.

This story is extremely disappointing, and HOPEFULLY* it won't unearth a heap of similar tales, uncovering the requisite pathetic culture of transfers for offenders, and burying of heads in sand. At this stage I'm calling it a bunch of sadistic C U Next Tuesdays who found themselves with a whole lot of kids and a whole lot of power.. who turned into a bunch of animals, Lord of the Flies style.

*The truth needs to come out, whatever it is. I'm not saying "HOPEFULLY the authorities won't dog too deep."
