What year is this anyway?
18 April 2004 | by (Burlington, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Very unsettling subject. I wasn't aware that Ireland was a church run state until I saw Sinners (and subsequently read about The Magdalene Sisters). It reminds me of the Salem Witch Hunt, or McCarthyism or the Spanish Inquisition in that people were not allowed to think or believe whatever they chose. Imagine in modern times (these types of "homes" or "prisons" were finally closed for good in the mid-1990's!!) the state being able to control you for going against some antiquated church doctrine. It seems unthinkable. To my mind, living in a free and democratic country should mean you can believe what you choose and decide whether or not to allow a/your church to imprison you, beat you, take away your baby and then still keep you locked up. My mind reels that a modern society in the western world could allow this.
