They sold human hair to English wig shops.
Think about that.
With the collusion of the State, they enslaved young girls, imprisoned them, tore their babies from their breast and imprisoned them. They called those children the Spawn of Satan. They regimented the children of those poor girls, humiliated them, paraded them in front of the town children, dressed them in smocks and made certain sure that they would never have the slightest shred of dignity.
That was what these fine Christian nuns did.
That was what these Brides of Christ achieved in our fine new Catholic independent republic.
That was exactly what these disturbed, frustrated, demented religious women inflicted on the young people of this fine republic.
How many hundreds of babies were flung into a sewer in Tuam?
I want to puke. I want to throw up. I really want to finally express my revulsion at the sort of state these so-called revolutionaries created, when all they managed to do was put our children in the hands of religious lunatics.
The nuns sold human hair to English wig shops, torn from the heads of the poor girls they imprisoned against the law. The nuns sold babies to America and Australia, against the law. The nuns used girls as slaves in their laundries against the law.
And now those same nuns thumb their noses to the law by refusing to release information about the babies they stole, leaving heartbroken mothers bereft.
It’s time these nuns were dragged before a court to answer for themselves instead of issuing callous, dismissive press statements, but of course, what could one expect from people who have never experienced close personal human relationships?
People who might be experiencing extreme personal anger as a result.
People who might be very damaged and unsuitable to look after anyone else.
