That is so sad sad
it's hard to believe this happened between the 20's and 60's.it seems so medieval.

The nuns and brothers had power handed over to them on a plate by the Irish Govt and took the piss in the name of "Christ". Humanity however was completely missing.

May they be merrily rotting in hell.

Sorry, I didn't see the other thread.

Those people acting in the name of God are murderers.

Do you know for certain that they killed? Rather than just disposed of bodies?

It was awful. Horrible. People were awful to vulnerable women and children.

32% of the babies in that place died. The nuns were responsible, whether through neglect or cruelty, so yes that makes them killers.
