"Helping to build a better world simply because we are evolving, developing and maturing humans."
"How can anyone believe in a God whose servants abuse children and whose hierarchy protects the abuser?"
JohnB Not in my lifetime!
These were the battle grounds of their original conflict with the Catholic church and its parishioners, this has been the battlefield of each and every victim of clergy abuse as today they face very much the same repression, ostracism denial and the inevitable cover up and the denial of the right to a fair go before the law in the name of democracy and human rights.
Today this battlefield has grown to be world-wide and never has the denial of the rights of a single segment of society been denied to such an extent as those abused by the Catholic church.
The 3 oft heard phrases were "Not in my lifetime!", "There is no end to the bastards!" and "The Catholic church has a lot to answer for!", the full list of those statements of excuse, platitude, bullying, intimidation, favoritism, fraud, deception along with the word of God from the church and its followers were all used against these particular individuals. However what has changed in our lifetime and in the lifetime of each of us as we each continue to speak out is that for the first time today more and more of us are able to truly and honestly say that the Catholics and the Catholic church are now truly beginning to see just what it is that they have to answer for and that thankfully means that there is an end coming to these bastards.
These bastards by the way were not only the priests who abused us, these bastards were our class 'mates', their parents and other fine upstanding members of society'. They were the soldiers of Christ who marshaled the forces of 'the church' against us. Many followed with religious zeal the instructions of their sexually abusive priests and nuns to silence and freeze out any who attempted to speak out. This was the culture that was all pervasive and this was the culture that permitted these abuses to go on for so long. Some were so affected and so afraid of the trouble they encounter if they associated with those of us who were abused that they too resorted to violence, bullying and intimidation as a method of saving their own skin.
It was in our family relationships and our school relationships where our places of battle followed each of us. This is where we experienced the cover up in everyday action, where we experienced the greatest pressure to remain silent else we would feel the wrath of the mentally deranged priests and religious who would plot against you, nuns who would beat us with whatever was available and who in their deluded attempt for approval from an even more deranged hierarchy could go so far as to provide you as the sexual toy for these mentally deranged individuals or they would simply exploit you for their own personal gratification and gain. These 'educated' Catholics were and remain the seeds of corruption and are the perpetrators of the cover up and of its renewal and replication in our society today.
Thankfully today that pressure to become angry, violent or aggressive in that mock shock, horror and outrage claim of anti-catholic that so many practiced along with a better ability to see the fallibility and foolishness of this sexually abusive religion and the deception of those who put themselves up as representatives of God must now be more restrained and that is one of the most satisfying experiences survivors of religious abuse can encounter.
The question as to why some Catholics rapidly become angry and aggressive when confronted about the crimes of sexual and other abuses can be found in this learned response through their Catholic education. Compliance with these sociopathic events also endeared them towards the nuns and other 'good Catholics' who would not permit a word of dissension or permit anything that was remotely connected with a scandal for the church. They were the oppressors of victims then and many of them remain the oppressors of survivors today whilst they are being paid handsome salaries by those further up the Catholic chain of both its corporate and its religious wings.
These are the people who today pay obeisance to the church and its teachings, teachings which say that the abuser is forgiven for a few prayers of atonement and teachings where the victim is repeatedly pushed into a forced silence and into offering forgiveness for the most horrific of crimes against us as children. When this is the requirement of the Catholic ethos and the Catholic law and when it has the authority to forgive these sexual crimes there is no need or reason for the involvement of civil law as according to their beliefs and understanding that is an interference in their right and their freedom to conduct their religion. This is at the core of the many requests the church makes today for exemptions from human rights and anti-discrimination laws.This bullying, intimidating human rights abusing mentality is and always has been an integral part of the Catholic ethos and of Catholic thinking in those who aimed for and achieved positions of authority and power as they progressed up through the hierarchy.These are the people who turned their backs on the abused and chose instead to laud and serve the abuser mentality from above.
This mentality still exists in each individual who today holds the Catholic church up as a beacon of light for the rest of humanity and in each individual who participates, trades and deals with the Catholic church across the spectrum of its commercial and community enterprises. This mentality is at the core of the social failures of our society and the failure of the Catholic church to address the issue of repair to health and of adequate and appropriate compensation to all those of us who were abused and aids and abets the defeat of natural justice for many others in society.
Those who achieved within this abusive and secretive culture were those who remained the most silent and kept those who attempted to speak out silent also. Many learned that this was the way to success in the Catholic system and many of them now head many of our support, health, management and policing bodies.
The more students who became just like the exploiting clergy and nuns the more successful they became and subsequently the more they rose up within the hierarchy of the Catholic church as there is no other means to rise within the structures of today's and history's church.
This stylized form of abuse and repression is the core of the continuation of the cover up culture and mentality that has percolated over generations to the top of Catholicism. This is the culture that today operates at all levels of education and employment under the realm of the Catholic church. These are the people who today stand in the way of the right to justice of the millions of victims across the globe.
These socially affected individuals are no longer the childhood oppressors of the abused, today they form the core of the Catholic commercial and church hierarchy, they are those who most seek power and authority over the general population as to do otherwise means they have to acknowledge their own role in the covering up of the abuses and of the denial of justice to the survivors. There is no greater evidence of this than that currently found in the hierarchies, management and employment in policing, health and other essential community services where the corrupted Catholic culture still attempts to cling to controlling the voices of the masses and of individuals and in doing that supports the very pox they say they wish to bring down.
No person who spoke out on their abuse or against the abuses was permitted to flourish in their childhood, however today we demand much more than this although while this culture still exists today among all levels of Catholic church enterprises and while it remains strongest within those who had the most 'successful' Catholic education it is a diminishing game and is more easily identified and exposed than ever before.
In a manner the Catholic church once held what was believed to be the worlds greatest franchise and they blew it. Not only did they blow it comprehensively they did that within our lifetimes and their litany of crimes and cover ups are no longer acceptable.
Many of these 'leaders' today hold positions of power and authority in government, policing, health, education, support groups and community enterprises and thankfully are increasingly under pressure to conform to standards of decency and dignity. While they are the final bastion of the Catholic cover up mentality they are now far more visible and open to social pressures as they are no longer assured of the support of others affected in similar ways to themselves as many have broken the bonds of the Catholic brain washing and are now walking away in their tens of thousands from this the most sexually repressive and psychologically abusive of religions.
Today the world sees the pox which has oppressed and held down the rights of the abused for what it is and today we can see that in the actions and words of police men and women, in our politicians and community leaders and each and every individual who has raised their voice in objection has the right to feel pride in their achievement and the part they have played in bringing the Catholic church to account for the final time in our history.
May we all live to see the Catholic church's cathedrals and churches turned into comedy theaters where the laughter of little children can be heard for the first time in generations for quite simply democracy and justice cannot flourish in this current religious cesspool of denial, repression, sexual abuse and domination.
Today the choice is quite clear as more of us realise the the Catholic church will not and is not capable of the social changes required by people today.
Those who attempt to support and prop up this broken system will become the pariahs of tomorrow and the destroyers of our democracy as they must stand against human rights and justice and all things moral and decent as that is the lot of an unchanging catholic church if that is what you want to follow.
For those of us who have escaped the abuses and the control and have come to understand the methods of repression there is a brighter light on the horizon for all of humanity and its children and the only thing standing in the way of that light shining brightly upon us and our children is the Catholic church and those who continue to support it.

Myth #2 - Most sexual abuse of boys is perpetrated by homosexual males.
Pedophiles who molest boys are not expressing a homosexual orientation any more than pedophiles who molest girls are practicing heterosexual behaviors. While many child molesters have gender and/or age preferences, of those who seek out boys, the vast majority are not homosexual. They are pedophiles.
