SLAVERY in Ireland in the 21st Century!! ~ Magdalene Laundries ~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Excerpt from Why Are You Atheists So Angry? 99 Things That Piss Off the Godless by Greta Christina


"70. I'm angry about the Magdalene laundries operated by the Catholic Church in Ireland. I'm angry that for decades - indeed, for well over a century - women who were considered sexually immoral, including unwed mothers, prostitutes, sexually active teenagers, women who had left their husbands, disobedient servants, overly flirtatious girls, and more - were imprisoned and held against their will in what amounted to forced labor camps. I'm angry that they were physically abused, psychologically abused, forcibly separated from their children, and forced into endless days of backbreaking labor to profit the Church, in many cases for the rest of their lives. I'm angry that they would have been better off in prison: that they were held on the sole authority of the Church, with no legal recourse, no due process, and no possibility of appeal. And I'm angry that all this was done in the name of enforcing a divine code of goodness and morality."







[link to www.cbsnews.com]


"It sounds medieval, something that happened hundreds of years ago, but, in fact, the last Magdalene laundry closed just over two years ago."

The last one was closed in 2007!!!

Ireland, Australia, Canada, USA.

Same is still happening to the Native Americans. The Jesuits recently paid 160 million. No prosecutions.

And it's amazing that most people have no idea that this happened and continue to happen!

And what amazes me more that there are those that do know about these atrocities that are supported by the Catholic Church and they remain in the church. That baffles me!

Hmm never heard about this one before. Another one to add to the very, very long list of things that the filthy roman catholic church has to answer for.

Exactly! It surprises me how many people have NEVER heard of this when this was going on just a FEW YEARS AGO?

It appears the Catholic Church is going a good job about trying to keep this dirty little secret, just that....a secret.

Was brought up catholic, church and schools. Always knew they look down on the female, particularly any girl or woman that showed an ounce of sexual appeal. Breaking the female spirit has fed their energy through all of these centuries. It is discouraging that the Irish people are still so brainwashed by the church. It is my opinion that the Irish folks would do so much better in embracing the Druid traditions, a tradition that honors women. The Romans (Vatican) killed off your Druid ancestors (mine too), it is time to relearn your true history. The heck with the Vatican Bank abusing your kids any longer, your Christ consciousness is internal, not externally found with the church.

I had watched the movie 'Magdelene Sisters' a few years ago....I think it had been on cable. Had no idea that this had happened and researched it.

Pretty horrible living conditions.

The movie looks at 4 different girls, how they came to be at the convent, and a great deal of what they endured while there. It is a bit disturbing to watch. Not just because of the abuse, but also for the humiliation these girls suffered through.

Anyways, here's the first part of the film if you wanna view it. I think there's 6 total....all can be linked thru the 1st one
