I have heard so much recently about the abuse of Irish orphans in Ireland by the Catholic Priests and nuns. What about the orphans in England? Don't forget our orphanages were run by the same Irish priests and nuns. I know Gordon Brown is going to apologise to the orphans that were sent to Australia. Who is going to apologise to us?
A Boston Lawyer employed by the Church commented, "Why are these people in their 60's only coming forward now? is it for the money that is getting dished out by the church in compensation?" Well, let me tell you, I came forward at 14, this is documented in my files after i complained that we were forever getting belted. They wrote " Nicholas is a habitual liar." They also said that they don't and have never owned a belt but on one occasion they did admit to using an official strap on the boys and whenever it was used a note was sent to the Home Office. I wonder if Gordon will ever see fit to apologise to those who were in the English orphanages? All these beatings and sexual abuses is big news these days, may God forgive. I have lived this big news all my life.
