Catholic Church once again at center of abuse inquiry

Is this a new issue or something from before?

I think news of large scale abuse in Australia (particularly Queensland?) came out last year.

" It will investigate allegations of abuse and cover-up that could date back decades." -> Taken from article.

Looks like it’s a new inquiry about incidents that happened some time ago.

Like most of the abuse allegations. Not that this makes them any less deplorable but that they are incidents that are not recent.

Not that it’ll stop the hate. Just look at the comments section.

It’s time to buckle down and prepare for the bloody persecution soon to come.
