The church is coming under fire because evidence of the castrations was not included in an official investigation of sexual abuse.

Sources tell Joep Dohmen of The NRC Handelsblad newspaper, the investigative journalist who uncovered evidence of the castrations, that the surgical removal of testicles was regarded as a treatment for homosexuality and also as a punishment for those who accused clergy of sexual abuse. Read the entire story at The Telegraph online.
