Catholic Church in Spain Steals 300,000 Babies

We know the Catholic Church hides it’s pedophiles, but it’s not like they steal BABIES or anything. Oh, wait…

A 50 year old scandal that the church is STILL covering up! The Catholic Church STOLE over 300,000 babies from mothers that they determined to “unfit” (read, “unmarried”) and told them their baby was dead. They then SOLD the baby to an affluent, religious family. Now that the secret is out, some of the nuns involved are actually being brought up on criminal charges because EVEN NOW, they refuse to “break their vows” and help the stolen children reunite with their parents or give access to the records they kept.

UNBELIEVABLE.

I don’t know about you guys, but if I found out that some fucking priest or nun stole my baby from me and THEN NOT HELP ME FIND IT?! I might take that VERY personally… I’d be cutting off holy fingers and toes until I found my kid.

Let’s see how this develops before jumping to conclusions. What actually happened and who knew needs to be certain before declaring this immediately everything the BBC alleges.

IIRC, i saw some documentaries about this years ago.
Probably in 2009.
Seemed pretty well documented.

And if the story is true, the scandal is actually more than 50 year old.
It started in the 40s, under Franco’s rule.
Apparently, there was many actors and institutions involved. Not only the Church.

It was hospitals with a “St.” in front of their name stealing the babies. It was NUNS taking the actual babies. It was the church vetting “appropriate” families.

I’m pretty horrified about what happened, but hey - it was a long time ago, right? But the turd in the punch bowl is that the church and the nuns are stonewalling the victims NOW. They are denying access to records they kept. They are “keeping vows” and refusing to help reunite people with their blood relatives. THAT’S what I find about this that is so distasteful.

Every institution that’s been around for more than 50 years has done some shit decades ago that we find horrifying today. That’s a fact of life. But most institutions at least TRY to make reparations for what they did, or even offer a public apology. Not add insult to injury by essentially saying, “yeah we stole your baby 40 years ago and we probably have a record of when and where we sold him/her. But FUCK YOU, we aren’t going to help you. We’re the RCC and you can’t MAKE us!”

Did it actually stop 40 years ago?

Sounds like a RICO organization to me.

Thank “God” the Catholic Church is protecting those poor, innocent, babies from unmarried mothers.*

*heavy sarcasm.

“Les enfants voles du franquisme” (the stolen children of Francoism)

Most of the church heirarchy are Satanists.

Jesus said not to worship false idols, like manmade churches.

I used to live in Spain; people have been talking about this for quite some time. One of those things that comes out in a trickle over years, I believe.

Thanks, b. I assume it is in Spanish?

The top of the heirarchy in the CC are all Satanists and pedophiles. At the top is a former Hitler Youth, eager for power and filled with an unquenchable thirst for control over mankind.

They are the devil incarnate.

I just want to get the facts strait here…

  • Children were ‘stolen’ in (only)Spain

  • It was a policy of the fascist Franco dictatorship

  • Doctors, nurses, the government and priests and nuns were all involved.

  • Because an unknown number priests and nuns were (allegedly) involved, the whole Catholic Church did it and nobody else.

  • You’re only mad at the church, everybody else gets a pass.

  • Child trafficking is happening at an alarming rate right now, nobody seems bothered by that

  • Child pornography is at an all time high, no big deal.

  • 1.2 million kids are murdered by abortion every year, no problem.

I think I get the picture.
