Montana Catholic diocese files bankruptcy to settle sex abuse claims

See on Scoop.itThe Global Village

HELENA, Mont. — The Roman Catholic Diocese of Helena filed for bankruptcy protection Friday as part of a proposed $15-million settlement for hundreds of victims who say clergy members sexually abused them over decades while the church covered it up.

Kevin Friery‘s insight:

It is really hard to estimate the extent of mental suffering in later life that has been caused by the large-scale abuse of children by clerics in the Catholic church.  It isn’t just a crime against a child, it is against the whole person forever.  Dreadful stuff.
