"The nightmares will always be there": These Magdalene survivors tell their personal stories
We spoke to four survivors who told us their personal stories of their time in the laundries.
QUOTE FROM NEW YORK TIMES
"In recent decades, the power of the church in Ireland has dwindled, in part because of a number of abuse scandals, not least among them the revelations of the suffering in the Magdalene laundries".
The Magdalen Laundries were the Auschwitz and Belsen of the Catholic Church in Ireland.
10,000 women were incarcerated in these concentration camps by wicked and frustrated nuns because of the Roman Catholic preoccupation with sin, sexual sin, and sex.
These women were rejected by their families because those families were brainwashed by bishops and priests into believing that sex was the biggest sin ever.
Parish priests from all over Ireland told parents and families to send their sinful and disgraced daughters to these Catholic gulags.
The RC Church had the full cooperation of the government, the judiciary, the Garda, the medical and legal professions - most of whom were "devout" Catholics.
Doctors filled out false death certificates for children killed by priests and religious - children that were then buried in unmarked graves or septic tanks.
Catholic men from the clerical, medical and legal "professions" regularly visited these gulags to rape the women.
|THE WATERFORD MAGDALEN LAUNDRY|
When I was a seminarian in Waterford (1973 - 1976) I was sent to visit elderly women living in rows of little cottages. At the time I did not know that these were "retired Magdalens" - that had now become too elderly and unable for the laundry's 13 hour days.
Later, looking back and knowing then who the women were I was horrified to think that I had been visiting women who had 50/60/70 year sentences for the crime of falling in love.
Jesus said: "It is by their fruits that you will know them".
The church that ran these Magdalen concentration camps, with their totally evil fruits, belongs to the Power of Darkness and not the Power of Light.
