Thread Name: BS: Clerical Abuse of Children
Subject: RE: BS: Catholic Abuse of Children
More sensationalised stuff from Jim, the burials dated from 1860 till the orphanage was closed in around 1980, during that time infant mortality was rife amongst the whole population; there were several catastrophic flu epidemics, pneumonia was a common cause of infant death, the crowded dormitories would have been an effective breeding ground for infection...there was the scourge of TB right up until the 1960's

What are you trying to say Jim? that the children were deliberately killed by the nuns and thrown in a hole?

I have seen photo graphs of the interior of the orphanage filled with hundreds of children all looked well fed, well dressed and cared for.
As a mason, I have worked in old graveyards here in Scotland and the old stones of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries contain the names of whole families who died in infancy.

You are a nasty piece of work on these matters Jim.
