"In 1975 no State or Church guidelines existed in the Republic of Ireland to assist those responding to an allegation of abuse against a minor. No training was given to priests, teachers, police officers or others who worked regularly with children about how to respond appropriately should such allegations be made."
-- Cardinal Brady
Nobody ever trained me how to deal with child rape, either. But I’m pretty certain that my default position – due to lack of training – would not bot to protect the rapist. I think I’d probably do every single possible thing in my power to stop the rapist raping anyone else and do whatever I could to help the victims.
I guess that’s just my lack of training showing.
