The Sisters of Charity, along with several other religious orders implicated in the Magdalene Laundries are to have their names changed and their charity status revoked after they refused to contribute to the victim’s fund.
The Advertising Standards Authority of Ireland (ASAI) has insisted that the religious orders must change their name and remove “Charity” and “Mercy” from their titles as leaving it in would grossly mislead the general public about their actually daily operations.
The decision by the ASAI came after several religious orders refused to contribute to the compensation fund that was set up for the women who were the victims of brutal and horrific treatment at the hands of the sisters in numerous Magdalene Laundries.
The religious orders are to now have their charity status revoked and must change their names. Currently the names imply that the organisations are kind, caring and charitable, when it has become clear that they are not.
The Sister’s of Charity will be renamed the Sisters of Scabby Harsh Bitches, The Good Shepard Sisters will become the Bad Shepard Sisters, Sisters of Our Lady Of Charity will become Sisters of Our Lady of Still Not Caring About The Victims and finally Sisters of Mercy will become Sisters of Crime, because of the illegal activity and because ultimately, crime doesn’t pay.
The changes must take place within 30 days.
Political figures spoke out about the decision not to pay into the fund by the various orders, but none of them have the balls to actually do anything about it, because that’s generally what they do. Nothing.
