Horrifying and sad. I agree.

There is another side to this story. The historian that "discovered" this took the source material from the county register, and the grave section was kept and maintained for some time.

Much of the story has the stench of the anti-catholicism that holds sway with the mainstream media there.

Steven, pointed towards the truth.

The story has been completely debunked.

The facts are that it was not a septic tank but a common burial vault. Common burial vaults were common all over Europe in the 18th and 19th Century. They are still common today, especially in Mediterranean countries. In Italy, for example, seven years after the death and burial of an individual, the reamins are transferred and reburied in a common vault. That provides burial space for new bodies. Even if a family is wealthy enough to have a mausoleum, the bones are still required to be moved into a large communal space in the mausoleum.

As Steven indicates, another case of the media getting it all wrong but justify their lack of due diligence on the fact that it puts the Church into a poor light.

Al Kresta, when the story first broke, advised his listeners to wait until the facts, from reliable sources other than the main street media, came out.

Patrick Madrid, on his "Right Here,Right Now" show today, wed. Jun 11, also discussed this non-story. He advised his listeners to go to his web site where he has a link to a more complete debunking of the story on Forbes magazine web site. Yes, that Forbes, the Capitalist voice.

Another case of the media making news instead of reporting it accurately. Thanks, Paul.

Or another attack on the Catholic Church, and we all know what that has been like surprised sad

Yes, in primitive times, they did die quite easily from common things cured today with a simple antibiotic and the most prevalent of those were "Puerperal fever or childbed fever or puerperal infection, is a condition that results from an infection of the female reproductive organs, contracted during or following childbirth or miscarriage. Usually diagnosed when cases of fever of 100.4 F (38 C) and higher during the first 10 days following childbirth or miscarriage are found. If untreated, it is often fatal." THese things were way before the washing of hands and antibiotics and it is just sad how a story would put such horrible light to the ignorant that the Irish peeps were holding such secrets or trying to alike us like the Nazi camp in Germany!

Unfortunately like Facebook, you cannot delete a bad story. I'm a bit embarrassed for posting this, but apparently a lot of folks were taken in by it. Thanks to Nina and others who corrected it. embarassed

No, you did well, it was good to get it aired and dealt with.

Since I recently saw the movie 'Philomena,' it was easy for me to believe something like this could have happened. I was so relieved to see that this was another MSM twist. Praying
