There have been countless accusations made about religious leaders in some churches, and the Catholic church has not been left out of these accusations. Most often than not, these perpetrators go unpunished.
Another has yet surfaced, as a Catholic Diocesan has impregnated 30 nuns. Pope Francis has confirmed reports for the first time that a particular Malawian Diocesan impregnated 30 nuns.
According to Pope Francis, he revealed that priests and bishops in the Catholic Church had sexually abused nuns and that some priests have been suspended on several occasions. Specifically, several examples came from Africa, where priests were said to have turned to nuns for sex during the spread of AIDS.
Nuns around the world have suffered sexual abuse by priests, sometimes resulting in pregnancy and abortion, but church leaders have “failed … to discipline” the clerics involved, the New York Times reports.
In one report, Sister Maura O’Donohue, a physician and a member of the Medical Missionaries of Mary, wrote that women were “forced” by priests into sexual liaisons to obtain certificates or recommendations needed for work in a diocese.
O’Donohue also recorded cases where nuns were “recommended” by priests to take contraceptives, sometimes being told that oral contraceptives would prevent the transmission of HIV.
The report included “disturbing” accounts of nuns impregnated by priests, including one case in Malawi where 29 sisters in one congregation were impregnated by priests in the diocese. Another example explained the case of a nun who was impregnated by a priest and was brought by that priest to a Catholic health institution to undergo an abortion.’
Cases like this goes on everyday and it seems the world is turning a blind eye to these cases.
This is a total disrespect to women who want to become Nun’s and devote all their time to serve their God with out any sexual intercourse with a man, and also a total disgrace to the Catholic Church.
