Argentina: Nuns on trial over sexual abuse of deaf children

by News Update

A second trial has started in Argentina over the systematic sexual abuse of deaf children at an institute run by the Roman Catholic Church.
Two priests and a gardener have already been sentenced, now two nuns and seven other female employees of the Antonio Provolo Institute are on trial for sexual abuse and corruption of minors in a case that has shocked the home country of Pope Francis.
With nearly 200 witnesses scheduled to testify, many of them requiring sign language interpreters, the trial could take up to a year.

Al Jazeera’s Daniel Schweimler reports from Buenos Aires, Argentina.

All religion is evil. Seeking absolution for the evil things you do from a high power instead of just NOT DOING IT is why religion is an ongoing crime against humanity.

Treat ALL religious institutions like the money grabbing, for profit sadly non-tax paying organisations that they are… Tax them and have them audit their activities with education faling under the civil education boards following the same checks and balances.
