"Unfortunately, most catholics outside of Ireland won`t even get to hear of this, even if they do ,if they don`t choose to ignore it they will blame the victims of these forced labour camps."

I'm doing my best to hammer it into assorted Latin Americans in my network on Facebook :-)

Thanks Eshto, that's a useful article you've got there too. I've added it to my facebook page, which I use for these purposes.

This article is part of an ugly culture of blame-evasion I've found in conservative Catholic circles when they are faced with this and other issues. It is repulsive, amongst other things, that they try to shift the blame onto homosexuals, thereby stigmatising a bullied minority and trying to portray themselves as the victims. I did some research into homosexuality and its (supposed) relationship with paedophilia, and found this:

I was there. The weather was fine and I'd signed up to the mailing list of the One Law for All Campaign and therefore got two months' notice. Skint as people may be I would've thought they could have saved up a bit if they believed in this enough. Personally I thought it was a great event. We got a couple of goofs from the far right and far left wandering around distributing propaganda, but they got told where to go. There was one heckler and I was a bit irritated by the way people from the demo started to gravitate towards him, creating a visible distraction. Other than that good stuff. I hope we do it again soon.
