So what do you suggest? Or are you just being populist by jumping on the old band wagon again of bashing all priests and nuns? The nursing homes you mention do not belong to the nuns as you infer. And apologies if I'm wrong about that. I don;t know how the nursing homes were financed and I suggest that maybe you don't either.
We tend to be very good at giving out here and forget all the good that these people did. Yes there were rotten apples as in all organisations. But it sickens me when I hear that "they still fight for compensation" It's all about money isn't it as if money cures all. Money won;t make it right. The evil that happened should not have happened and all organisations involved have apologised propfusely, but it is always easy to judge what happened years ago by todays standards. And I don't agree with that.
