“It was covered”

301 Roman Catholic priests in Pennsylvania molested more than 1,000 boys and girls got it all hidden from the authorities and parents.

‘Priests were raping little boys and girls, and the men of God who were responsible for them not only did nothing. They hid it all,’ Attorney General Josh Shapiro said The Daily Mail reports.

According to the investigation, one of the Catholic priests had molested five sisters within one family. One of them, Carolyn Fortney, said: ‘It’s very lonely. Especially when it’s your word against God’s.’

They hid it all: the bishops covered up child sexual abuse by reassigning priests to other parishes.’Children were taught that this abuse was not only normal but that it was holy,’ Shapiro added.

“Despite some institutional reform, individual leaders of the church have largely escaped public accountability,” the grand jury wrote. “Priests were raping little boys and girls, and the men of God who were responsible for them not only did nothing; they hid it all. For decades.”

In fact, the kinds of sexual assaults vary from groping and masturbation to anal, oral and vaginal rape, NY Times states. Two of 301 priestst have been charged, some of them are now dead, and others have been charged before.
