France: Priests rape 216,000 children, report

According to a recent report in France, the country’s Catholic priests have sexually abused about 216,000 children since 1950.

According to the BBC, the head of the investigation says that the number of priests who have been sexually abused is between 2,000 and 3,000.

The report said most of the victims were boys, most of whom were between 10 and 13 years old.

A statement from the Vatican said the pope had learned of the report after meeting with French clergy a few days earlier. Pope Francis is deeply saddened by the information gained from this inquiry.

Franواois Davo, founder of the victims’ organization La Parole, says the scattering was scattered and children were betrayed.

The study also found that the number of children affected could rise to 323,000 if sexual abuse by church members other than clergy, such as Catholic schoolteachers, was included.

The report is the result of an impartial investigation by the Catholic Church of France in 2018, which took more than two and a half years, during which the records of the courts, police and the church were searched and the victims and witnesses were examined. Talked
