A US Jesuit order has agreed to pay $166 million (£103 million) to compensate nearly 500 victims of decades-long "horrific" sexual and psychological abuse by priests in five US states, lawyers said on Friday.
Most of those abused by priests from the Oregon Province were American Indians at mission schools on Indian reservations, (WHITE MAN SUCK WITH FORKED TONGUE? Ed) The US Northwest chapter of the Rome-based Society of Jesus agreed to the payout – which lawyers said is the biggest by a religious organisation in the United States.
Fair enough, I say. They deserve all they get. I work out that they will get on average just over £200k each. But the question that springs to my mind is, where the fuck did a small part of the Catholic Church get that sort of money? I doubt, very much, if an insurance company is paying it out. Those bastards will wriggle out of anything from a suicide victim to an overflowing bath causing water to come through the roof.
So if all these Catholics, my deceased In-Laws amongst them, are giving all this money to the Catholic Church for them to do good works, why do they still have this sort of money? Why has it not been paid out to some needy African persons or some twat in South America whose tribe was systematically wiped out by the Conquistadores and their Jesuit Priests.
The truth is of course, that faith is personal, but religion is a business and the Catholic Church is the most successful there is at fleecing it's faithful followers.
