Nuns raped by priests in 23 countries

The Vatican confirms:

“[The priests] have been exploiting their financial and spiritual authority to gain sexual favours from nuns, particularly those from the Third World who are more likely to be culturally conditioned to be subservient to men.”

Apparently these numbers are what has been officially reported the last 10 years. Given the Catholic Church’s main strategy of hiding and destroying evidence of sexual scandals, the real number of rapes is presumably higher.
