I was doing a little personal research for a topic that I am interested in and stumbled on this strange article. This article concerns the abuse of young innocent nuns after they enter a convent. They have no idea what they are getting into it seems. They become virtual slaves and they are even sexually abused by priests. This is really a creepy article. Has anyone else heard of any similar stories of nuns being deceived and used by the Catholic Church? Is this an isolated incident? Article below:

There were lots of reports about abuse BY nuns, too.

Thanks for the quick links. I had a peek. Seems to be a big problem in Africa. The Catholic Church seems to have all kinds of problems on its hands. Maybe they are just not dealing with the sex issue properly, expecting celibacy and total control of emotions and all of that kind of thing. Catholics are still human beings, maybe that is the central problem with the admminstration of the religion. But, I think the abuse of nuns is a more serious problem though. It might just be rape. I don't think nuns enter a convent and expect to have a priest approach them looking for sexual favours.
