Thousands beaten, raped in Irish reform schools

Lots of people were asking me about this today. Thing is I probably know more about this Madiun crash, OK maybe not.

In any case, Ireland's history should be a warning to everybody about mixing religion with government and the judiciary. People of religious authority could do anything they wanted without question, how some evil people took advantage of that.

Religion is all well and good, the trick is to remember that people representing their gods are still ultimately fallible people. They are no closer to god than you or I (well I am an atheist).
