R-23 More Priests "exposed".. Now what about the Nuns?

Vatican OKs resignation of Iowa bishop
DAVENPORT, Iowa - The Vatican announced the bishop of Davenport's retirement Thursday, two days after the Roman Catholic diocese filed for bankruptcy amid dozens of lawsuits alleging priest sex abuse.......Since 2004, the Diocese of Davenport has paid more than $10.5 million to resolve dozens of claims filed against priests, including a $9 million settlement reached with 37 victims. The lawsuits accused 11 priests of sexually assaulting children since the 1950s and blamed church leaders for covering it up.

The Diocese of Davenport includes 85 parishes and more than 102,000 members..... The cost of the Catholic sex abuse cases nationwide has risen to about $1.5 billion since 1950, according to figures compiled from various studies by the U.S.Conference of Catholic Bishops.

I have to add a comment here as there is also another area of abuse within the Catholic Church... and that is with the Nuns.... While I know that some of them were abused by the priests, I also know of the children, including myself, that were abused by the nuns. Maybe not sexually, but that was there also, but in the mental, emotional and physical cruelty they inflicted on innocent children, just to get them to "conform" to the Churchs and their rules. It's time that they are also exposed for what they are.... including Sister Thereasa.
