Alaska horror

Newsweek has a devastating account of Jesuit malfeasance among Eskimos.

It is one of the darkest chapters of sexual abuse in the Roman Catholic Church. More than 110 children in Eskimo villages claim they were molested between 1959 and 1986, raped or assaulted by 12 priests and three church volunteers. Families and victims believe that another 22 people were sexually abused by clergy members but have since killed themselves. The Jesuit Oregon Province, which includes Alaska, has agreed to pay $50 million in damages. It is believed to be the largest settlement ever against a religious order.

Religious colonialism.  Closed system.  Rampant lack of accountability.

  1. These men have sullied the Bride of Christ. Woe unto them at the Last Judgment. Too awful to contemplate.
