German nuns pimped out orphans to priests, politicians and businessmen. They raped the children as other men watched. Sex parties were held at the home of a diocesan official and nuns dragged the unwilling youngsters aged between 7 and 14 to these events and beat them with sticks or smashed their heads against a wall […]

951: Gloucestershire peasants go on a crusade

This is a fantastic story about my beloved home county of Gloucestershire in the West of England. In the 12th century recruiting agents went around the remote villages whipping up hatred of the ‘infidels’ who had taken over the holy city of Jerusalem. The peasants, duly enraged, and armed with pitchforks and the like, set […]
