Vatican US child sex abuse cases 'falling apart'
      I was disappointed that our Supreme Court didn't correct this injustice, and I'm frustrated that I can't hold the Vatican accou

Could this be something positive?
      Here is a group of these badly injured people and they know and you know, I know, we all know that they will not get assistance from either the government or the church.

To Whom It May Concern:
      As you are aware, the all party Motion passed by Dil ireann in Ireland supported the proposal for a Trust to be set up and managed by the State for the support of victims and for other education and welfare purposes.

We propose that Pope Benedict and the Vatican:
      n most cases their souls were murdered by men and women who represented God.It is time the church placed these individuals and their families at the top of the list of priorities. No longer should a survivor have to worry about where his or her next meal will come from, how the household bills will be paid, how to fend off the latest panic or anxiety attack, or how to cope with nightmares and depression.There will always be time for apologies but apologies are just words. The Vatican can demonstrate its apology by getting to work and giving victims what they need to heal.

I posted the following in regards the clergy abuse issue here - you may like to add your own to this
      I would like to see a comprehensive coverage on the global clergy abuse crisis from the survivor/victim perspective.That perspective is nothing like the stereotyped victims portrayed in the news.As a survivor I talk to other survivors around the world and our conversation is strongly focused on child safety and the protection of children and the exposure of those who obstruct and deny genuine safety for children.

Archbishop Denis Hart's pastoral letter, apologizing for the suffering caused by clerical sexual abuse, is too little too late
      Professor Allan Patience is an Australian lay Catholic presently working at Sophia University in Tokyo. Archbishop Denis Hart's recent apology to victims of sexual abuse has stirred him into penning this cutting response that argues the institution's present problems extend far beyond the present focus of the sexual abuse scandal.

40 Professors: 'Attacks' on Pope 'Unjust'
      40 Professors: 'Attacks' on Pope 'Unjust'

On the issue of the sexual abuse of children by clergy and the subsequent coverup
      As we all know it at times seems like an impossibly big topic yet we all acknowledge that we are we not even slightly capable of bringing into the conversation in the mainstream press the merest hint of the social implications toward society and our children in the face of the reality of what is occurring in the Catholic and in other churches. Currently we simply have outrage across continents over a never ending stream of disclosures and failures of the most most highly skilled and trained theological and religious minds the world has achieved and a long filter down of the same corrupted power and control mentality into society. These same minds are still playing guessing games whilst religiously railing at those things they fear the most. In survivor parlance that is the direction you are most likely to find the truth when it comes to dealing with the church.

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.
