Nuns Sexually Abused These Women For Years. Now Survivors Speak Out.

32283 ratings | 1982636 views
The Catholic Church has been rocked with allegations of sexual abuse carried out by priests for decades. Now survivors of abusive nuns are speaking out. Patricia “Trish” Cahill and Anne Gleeson were teenagers when the abuse began. Even though these two survivors grew up in different cities, the grooming and manipulation conducted by the nuns they say abused them sound eerily and tragically similar.

Knowledge is power, talk to your children. Let them know what's acceptable and not, when it comes to touching, and that they are the ones setting the rules for their bodies. That people might want them to do stuff and try to scare them, by threatening to hurt their family or something similar. And that they should always tell someone they trust, a grown-up, police etc. It's probably more difficult for you to talk about it, than for the child. Children are open-minded, they don't think about bodies and sexuality like grown-ups, they just need to know, because they are protected by just knowing.

Victims of sexual abuse, only has to forgive themselves. The perpetrators can rot in hell, we don't need to make them feel better about what they have done. We need to figure out how we can feel good about ourselves again. Teenagers are in a very confused time of their lives, it's a grown-ups duty to protect and guide them in that time, not abuse it. And children are just children, they don't think about bodies or sex like a grown-up. I wish there was instant karma going around.

Not only does it happen in Catholic Churches it happens in black churches as well I don’t allow my children to go to Sunday school...! My aunt was raped in the church by the pastor and his congregation did absolutely nothing to him still to this day my aunt won’t step foot in a church! It’s so easy to lose your faith in situations like this, this is heart breaking! People are sick...

My 1st 2 years I went to Catholic school. The Nuns were the meanest people I'd ever known...at least until I started in public school. I'm very sorry for the things that happened to these women...though I'm not surprised...the Catholic church is extremely corrupt.

These foul wolves in sheep's clothing....they never had the love and teachings of Christ, only worshipping themselves, act like they're gods and proceed to take advantage of others to satisfy their own sick twisted devilish souls, these nuns and priests who committed these abominations worship the devil, not the lord, makes me sick and disgusted

As a Canadian we are still reminded that nuns, not just priests took part in the sexual abuse of native children in residential schools. It was never just the priests bt the sisters were also very involved in harm and punishments. It's a daily reminder, however like this videos states, nuns are often largely ignored and get a free pass

But of course this happened and still happens in all religions in churches, temples, Moschee in all! For religions are of men, and it is from Babylon! The Most High does not dwell in temples made by men! !! He is within the clean temple, which is us! ! The name Jesus Christ is an invention of men. ... he is not the son of the Most High! ! That does not exist! The cross is a symbol of death, T from Tammuz in Babylon the religion of the woman with the child in her arms and that symbol spread throughout the earth! 🍃Many will come in my name but they are not of me: Nimrode, Tammuz, Baal, Sun God, Zeus (Big-Bang Theorie), etc., etc., Yausha, Jesus Christ. And they will deceive many, and if possible go to the chosen ones!🍃 💖Name here is a pleonasm, just a figure of speech. The Most High has no name !? For name is given to matter, objects, mortal beings, a way of identifying that which is changeable, perishable. The Creator was, is and always will be the same so we can not give names, carnal to "Him", only definition as The Most High, The Eternal, The Creator of all things: Heaven, Earth and Water Fountain and all that is in them! !!! 💖I hope I've helped!

I wasn't sexually abused at St. Michaels, but I was physically and mentally abused. Everything got blamed on me. When I was in 1st grade, I had to go to the bathroom. The nun (Sister Brick) Mrs. Brick wouldn't let me go to the bathroom. I ended up wetting my pants in front of the whole class. They took me into the Parsonage and washed my clothes. I had to sit on a couch wrapped in a towel until my clothes dried. They wouldn't even wash me after this. They ended up calling my MOM and apologizing. I was humiliated and heard about it for the rest of my school years. They were very cruel. 2 kids got into a fight, and I was sitting at the lunch table. When one shoved the other one, they hit me and dumped my milk and food all over. I got blamed for starting a disturbance. These NUNS need a rude awakening. The next year, my parents pulled me out of that school. Between the gossip and the bullying, I am 49 now and it damaged me. I now have PTSD and Social Anxiety Disorder and Major trust issues.

About Amanda Knox' lies. A first important point is that Amanda Knox did not just "lie during an interrogation". She did indeed spin a story falsely incriminating Patrick Lumumba, but she didn't do that during an interrogation: her false accusation was a protracted and repeated behaviour. It went on long after the interrogation. Indeed Knox went on spinning false stories - not just accusing Lumumba but also threatening Sollecito - that this is protracted behaviour is a first important point to bear in mind, yet still not the main point. - By the way I also note that her written memoriales are not the work of a person who is weak and naive to the point of having lost mental control, no longer able to concoct and organize a tortuous manipulation. Her memoriale is a sophisticated and highly controlled text, it is the manifest attempt by a person still in full rational control; anyway, any theory of Amanda being weak and naive and psychologically coerced should be backed with evidence. It should be proven, you cannot just postulate or guess that a person lies because is psychologically weak, with no evidence. And yet as I said this is still not the main point. A rather more significant point is Knox's actual position in the trial. her actual claims. The fact that Knox, at the preliminary hearing and trial, did NOT claim that she had lied, under pressure. That was not her position at the trial at all. On the contrary, she claimed that she had not lied ad all, and told that she suffers of a false memory syndrome. Her defence called a psychiatist from a Rome university to testify to support her claim. Your might have played the card about psychological weakness and coercion if Knox had brought a story of psychological coercion to the trial. She did not. she brought up a story of a false memory syndrome. So, the lack of consistency in her own explanations about her behaviour is a point more important than what she said during an interrogation. This is not, however, the only contradiction from Knox in her own defense. But a further and more relavant fact is that Amanda Knox did not lie only when falsely accusing Lumumba. She simply told a huge load of lies, above all before the interrogation. Her whole "story" about having showers in bloody bathroom and carrying mops through the town is a mass of lies. There is no piece of it consistent with any other or with any piece of reality. And then she also lied subsequently: after the trial, in her public declarations, and in her book. She's a systematic liar. One further element to note, is that we are not talking about just one liar; wre are talking about two. Not just Amanda Knox, but also Sollecito always lied. And it is now and an established judicial truth that "all his versions are lies". Sollecito told lies in his changing versions during interrogations, he told proven lies in his book (a Judge forced him and Gumbel to admit that his book was fictional), and he tells lies today. Before any other consideration, any person would ask themselves why two "innocent" people should tell lie all the time - that's not exactly what innocent people do. I won't get into further detalis anout all the dimensions and the steps of Knox lying about accusing Lumumba and about the rest (including her Dec. 17th interrogation, etc.) because it would get too long. About Rudy Guede: he did not act alone. Note: this is, by the way, a fact established definitively by the last verdict. But it is just a proven fact - it is evidence whoever wants to look into it - that this murder was phisically committed by more than one person. It is a fact that it would be impossible for a single perpetrator to commit this crime. Forget about Introna's theory, which is unrealistic and inconsistent with findings and was rightly dismissed by the judge. Meredith Kercher was killed by multiple perpetrators. While Knox is officially proven to have been certainly present at the murder. Knox, actually, did indeed take part physically to the killing action - she was not just an observer - but still, bear in mind that even a "passive" observer would bear responsability, because Meredith Kercher did not die on the spot. She died of blood loss after an agony of ten minutes or more. Not just the physical perpetrators, but even a hypothetical passive observer who happened not to call for help would be a person committing a serious life-threatening or deadly offense,

very very well done story. At 2 parts of it I said "That's it"! I have been in the forefront of clergy abuse for years as a victim (I did not survive and resent that term) Been though the legal thing with Mitchell Garabedian as my attorney and demonstrations and doing all I can only to find that anyone that WALKS INTO A CATHOLIC CHURCH IS THE ENEMY..... At this point after the proof that for hundreds of years they rape and kill and send soldiers to war with holy water (on both sides of the war) and you fucking people still go into a church and worse DONATE????? I believe a time is coming when millions will be slaughtered for being 'christians' in America..... And it will be the result of this horseshit clergy abuse. This will be the excuse to let loose the demonic armies. If you think I'm a fool then you're a fool

It really makes you wonder what is this world coming to for all these women and men who have come forth speaking about all the pedophile rings in the Catholic Church and for it all to get swept under the rug with no repercussions and how all the higher-ups in the church are complicit letting these pedophiles rape the children and do absolutely nothing about it these children have been failed by an institution that they should have been safe in and all who knew about and were directly involved need to be held accountable
My great grandmother- who was a very strong Catholic btw, always used to say "priests take their collar off, they're like everybody else!" In other words, treat nuns and priests like you would your average person, they are NOT God, they do not have magic powers!!

Pedophilia is part of Rome’s false religion, although the predator priests get all the publicity. It’s not part of Christianity. When you think about it, a religious covering is the perfect means of deception. Being a Catholic priest or nun is the perfect job for these sickos, especially because of their assumed position of authority. It’s far worse than we know.

Never give up on God . He told people if his guidance isn't followed , social ills will ensue. Learn what is really God's guidance in the Quran, not what men or women want it to be so they can date or use someone, or oppress someone-can especially the disabled, blacks or emotionally challenged peaceful people..

Predators are ODing on simple people because of the patriarchal abusive systems. When victims stand up for themselves often ostracization is the least they experience . Even in some Islamic societies victims are shamed instead of comforted. Not God's Islam , patriarchal Islam.
Senada Pasic (3 days ago)
Sexual slavery is still everywhere sometimes with physical torture and unspoken death threats. It takes thousands in the community and authority for the predators to survive- that's the problem. And then when the courts rip up the victim to shreds or give out meagre punishments, the disease spreads. The worst for victims is the gaslighting . Young girls trained from a young age to be "girlfriends" are being used and assaulted by the millions by men , and they still stand by the "dating " culture - denial is powerful.
