Pope Francis has admitted that clerics have sexually abused nuns, and in one case they were kept as sex slaves.

He said in that case his predecessor, Pope Benedict, was forced to shut down an entire congregation of nuns who were being abused by priests.

It is thought to be the first time that Pope Francis has acknowledged the sexual abuse of nuns by the clergy.

He said the Church was attempting to address the problem but said it was "still going on".


I DON'T CATCH A LOT OF NEWS THESE DAYS. BUT WHEN I HEARD THIS, I EXPECTED SOME NOISE FROM THE MEDIA. IT WAS ONE THING TO ADMIT IT HAPPENED, QUITE ANOTHER TO ACKNOWLEDGE IT IS STILL HAPPENING WITH ONLY A SIMPLE EXPLANATON THAT THEY ARE TRYING TO GET A HANDLE ON IT! MY GOOGLE SEARCH FOUND MANY ARTICLES, BUT I HAVEN'T HEARD ANYTHING BEYOND THE INITIAL BROADCAST BACK IN FEB.

NOT THAT THIS IS SHOCKING COMING FROM THE RCC, BUT CRICKETS,,, REALLY.
