    Underage sexual abuse victims were castrated in Dutch Roman Catholic psychiatric wards in the 1950s, according to the Rotterdam-based newspaper NRC Handelsblad.

    Castration was performed on young men who were thought to be homosexual, but also as a means of punishing those who blew the whistle on abusers, the paper quotes sources as saying.

    NRC discovered proof of the forced castration of one young man and strong evidence that at least ten other abuse victims were subjected to the removal of their testicles. The proof includes court documents, medical records, letters from lawyers and private correspondence.

    According to the paper, the practice was reported in 2010 to the Deetman Commission which completed its investigation of sexual abuse in the Roman Catholic church last December. The commission, led by former cabinet minister Wim Deetman of the Christian Democrat party (CDA), made no mention of the castration of abuse victims in its final report.

    NRC also writes that a prominent Dutch politician tried to secure a royal pardon for Catholic brothers convicted of sexual abuse at Harreveld, a former boarding school in the Netherlands. The politician was Vic Marijnen, who later became Dutch prime minister.

    Marijnen was chairman of the Harreveld board of governors at the time when the abuses took place. He was also vice-chairman of the Netherlands' main Catholic child protection agency and leader of the Catholic People's Party (KVP), which later merged with Protestant groups to create the Christian Democrats.

    In a reaction, the church-installed Deetman Commission says it did not publish any findings on the castration of abused minors in its final report because it had "too few leads for further investigation." The commission did not report on the actions of Vic Marijnen because "the case was unmistakeably tied to circumstances which could be traced back to an individual person." In its final report, the commission left most identities anonymous as a means of protecting individuals' privacy.
    disgusting.

    Its not the religion, its the people following the religion, most religious books tell you to be kinda, to respect your neighbor, not to harm them, to accept them.

    They say it in olden time's words and phrases, and that causes people to misinterpret the meaing.

    No surprise, the Catholic Church is a world wide organization that is pretty much the closest thing to a conspiracy theory society or legion trying to control the world.

    Wait, does this mean they believe in evolution? lol.... (even though obviously that doesn't make sense either, it would still be hilarious if they thought they were doing it to make a difference to them potentially reproducing). fucking hell some religious people are retarded.

    What? You're right, that makes no sense either since if the kids were gay they are already an evolutionary dead end so castrating them is pretty redundant.

    And nah mate it's not hilarious if they think that, cause either way they just lopped off some kids bollocks because of their own fucking self righteousness.

    Jesus Christ. If *any* other organisation did this (assuming the Pope already knew), they would immediately be shut down and their leaders arrested for a whole host of offences, but since it's a religion that's fine. Can we stop accepting archaic, demeaning and unethical practices allowed around the world because somebody thinks a magic man in the sky told them to do it?

    They are probably dumb enough to think gays are a separate species that can reproduce on its own, so yeah.

    Well for a while there was castration of dwarves and mentally challenged people. Don't know about homosexuals.

    I will only show tolerance to people who are willing to be tolerant with others as well.

    There are a fuckload of christians and religious people globally who are just very cool people, willing to simply share their knowledge and faith without forcing you to join their religion and without entitling themselves as better than you because you don't think the same way and don't like the same thing as them. I have met quite a lot of religious people I had very interesting conversations with concerning religion, and never has it went anywhere near an argument.

    I am completely willing to tolerate THOSE people, because they are not a direct threat to others. I will, otherwise, despise any sort of religious people or really anyone who because of their beliefs will directly try to inhibit another person's freedom, because this is not what religion should be about, neither what human relations should be about.

    The old text can be very clearly cruel and merciless at times. By our standards ofcourse.
    It speaks of killing out of revenge or as punishment.
