Really good post,and thx for the links. You find such great stuff! You've already heard more than enough from me about my views on the Irish abuses....This post of yours was very helpful, as one tends to try to seek ideological explanations when thinking about how supposedly civilized people could behave as the Nazis or Franco's or Mussolini's followers did, and particularly when supposedly "holy" people abuse their trust.

However, I am somewhat sceptical of the whole notion of "good" people being turned "evil". Why we like Star Wars, Luke turn to the dark side....St. Paul wrote in Romans 3 about the sinfulness at the core of us, for "all have sinned, all fallen short."

But maybe Paul was a proto-Jansenist (wicked chuckle)?
