Nuns & $193 Million For Child Abuse

In a horrifying story involving decades of widespread child abuse, a prominent group of nuns in Ireland has agreed to pay $193 Million as restitution for the mistreatment they allowed.

This concession marks one of the biggest and most striking ackowledgements of guilt from a wing of the Catholic Church, in one of the worst of numerous allegations of child abuse and other atrocities that have been levelled against the church in recent years. This case was investigated for 9 years in Ireland, and brought a damning case against church authorities there for betraying the trust given them to oversee child welfare for many kids in the country. Hopefully the money paid can go towards healing a tiny bit of the wounds inflicted, though it's hard to feel justice can ever be fully served in a case where so many children sufffered this way.

The Pope recently stated that Islam was spread by the SWORD, better the sword than the pedophile CATHOLIC PENIS.
Rot in hell you swines and pedophiles.
