The Dutch Catholic Church

Posted by Dan Savage on Tue, Mar 20, 2012 at 11:14 AM

From the 1956 Dutch edition of Roman Catholic Handbook for Ordained Priests: Rape the boy. If the boy complains about being raped, have the police take the boy to a Catholic psychiatric hospital. Then have him castrated.

It was a win-win-win for the church: the accuser was stigmatized, mutilated, and silenced, and future victims of Dutch pedophile priests were a lot less likely to complain.

Organized religion, ladies and gentleman. It'll be here all millenium. Tell your friends.
