This was by no means unique to Ireland. Actually, the Magdellen Laundries were founded and based on a similar system in operation in Victorian England.

It was perhaps by no means an ideal arrangement, but just look at how degenerate our society, people and media have become without a strong moral force at play in society.

The glorification of degeneracy and moral relativism has replaced the traditional system of morality in Ireland and other European societies.

And are we all the better for it? Absolutely not, our degenerate and moral relativistic culture is heading the way of the Roman Empire - extinction.

Remove a system of belief and sense of purpose and what you get is moral degeneracy and cultural and ethnic extinction through moral relativism and one world ideology where even religious leaders are afraid to state the path to salvation in case it might offend some of our newcomer friends.

We need to be careful not to judge the past by the standards of the present.

That said, the "good" old days were not as great as many believe.

There are horror stories about the RCC all over Europe but nowhere did the scale and cruelty match what happened here. It was an unholy alliance between church, state and citizenry that existed here and all three parts were made up of our forefathers. We need to own this.
no, they were far worse in Spain

But they were hardly a 'moral' force

This would be the child raping, lying, self aggrandising hypocritical irish catholic church you're referring to? I presume you're just being a bit of a WUM.

Religion is optional. You really need to keep up with the facts and leave your "rage" behind.

There was plenty of degenerate activity in those oh so moral times too,rampant in fact, it was just kept hushed, hidden and away from public view.


Well the Romans had embraced Christanity by the time of the fall of the Empire, if any thing it made them complacent and removed the fire in their belly.

Sad as it is, this is the RCC (and their brainwashed enablers) being a bunch of wankers shocker.

We are to feel proud about the church why exactly? Hasn't really covered itself in glory.

Everyone looks back
First it was the English’s fault
We got rid of them
Then it was the church’s fault for everything
Kind of got rid of them

Problem is the whole place is still a disaster. we are screwing every single person over and over again, health system is a disaster but you have our leader posting about sending 100 million to other countries.....what do the Irish people do? Nothing

Who will we blame in a few years?

Blame the church all you want but every single Irish person knew exactly what was going on and allowed it...still do today

Let us not forget the Kerry babies case in 1984, where members of the infamous Garda Heavy Gang forced a confession out of Joanne Hayes and her family admitting to the murder of a newborn baby boy found washed up on a beach in Cahirciveen, some 80kms from their home in Abberdorney, which incidentally is not far from Listowel. Joanne had given birth to a stillborn baby whom she buried on the family farm. She readily admitted this to Gardaí but in their wisdom they still,rather than admit their wrong,proceeded to convince everyone that Joanne was the mother of both babies and murdered both. Modern DNA has vindicated the entire Hayes family. Yet,to this day one of the main players of the Heavy Gang still disputes this and sticks by his original outlandish theory.
He is Gerry O'Carroll, a regular on the Joe Duffy show, giving his opinions on modern day criminality.!! I kid you not.
He is from Listowel and would have grown up knowing all about the Peggy McCarthy story,yet proceeded to treat a young woman like this almost 40 years later.
So it wasn't the RCC alone that abused their power. They were just another player in something that was rotten to the core.
Incidentally, the 4 Heavy Gang leaders took a case against the publishers of a book on the Kerry Babies and were awarded around £30k each by their buddies in the judicial system,another rotten to the core organisation.
The mind boggles.
