Catholic Church of Victoria: At least 849 children abused over past 63 years

Post by >THE Ben Reilly< on Sat Jun 15, 2013 11:55 pm

The Catholic Church in Victoria has revised up the number of children it acknowledges were sexually abused by Catholic clergy and staff.
In its original submission to the Victorian child abuse inquiry, the church confirmed it had paid compensation to 620 victims.
But after analysing documents held by various orders of brothers and nuns it now says that since the 1950s at least 849 children have been abused.

I can't begin to attempt to start to comprehend the line of thinking that led church officials away from the conclusion that the Church's claim to the moral high ground would be severely damaged by this. If that makes sense.
