re: The issue of sexual abuse by clergy and other associated with the
Catholic Church.

It is a fact supported by the recent statements of Pope Benedict on his
recent visits to both America and Australia that the issue of these
abuses has not been handled appropriately.

It is a fact that the Catholic Church, its Bishops and other instruments
are able to develop and present purportedly sound arguments in virtually
all aspects of human endeavor and relationships and regularly does so,
at times this is done at great expense and through torturous legal and
political machinations as a means of ensuring all follow its beliefs as
it has the weight of God behind these arguments and believes that these
religiously based rules and laws are for the betterment of society as a
whole and are the only course all people should take.

It is a fact that these two statements do not and cannot support each
other whilst both states exist.

The statement by Benedict is supported by a great deal of evidence both
here in Australia and in increasing numbers in other countries around
the world. In regards the fact that "the issue of these abuses has not
been handled appropriately" is in all respects truthful and factual and
carries such directness that there is an undeniable infallibility in
regards that statement.

It is a fact that the sexual abuse of children is a crime by State law.

The facts are that in many instances where parents found that their
children had been sexually abused and assaulted and that this was often
reported to Bishops. It has been shown that across the globe there has
been a culture of cover-up and a culture of protecting the good name of
the church, a culture which not only permitted the moving on of abusive
priests thus enabling them to actually have access to and to actually
abuse more children than would be expected from a pedophile in the
general community.

It is also a global phenomena that priests regardless of them having in
some cases many dozens if not hundreds of reportings made against them
particularly in the case of Kevin O'Donnell who it has been stated may
have sexually abused more than 2000 children.

This likely makes him the most prolific pedophile in known history. It
is a fact that Governments, Politicians and Police forces were aware of
a high number of sexual abuse cases involving priests.

The extent of the practice of priests sexually abusing children was so
rampant that it has evolved and cemented its place in our folklore with
literally hundreds of "jokes" in regards the sexual deviances of bishops
and went as far as using the word pedophile.

These jokes are simply known to all adult Australians through the
classic question of "What do you give a pedophile who has everything?".
This produces many different responses with the number 1 response being
that of "A bigger parish". This response is one of more than 30 commonly
known responses. Such is the depth of the entrenchment of the ongoing
sexual abuse of children, particularly by catholic nuns and priests in
our folklore.

One does not have to be a highly skilled and well trained expert in our
police forces to see the connectedness and the similarities when
virtually the entire populations of these countries are aware of the
situation. Members of Parliaments in these countries along with Police
Officers, magistrates, government employees and Prime Ministers have
told of and laughed at these jokes.

They laughed while hundreds of thousands of children across the globe
were permitted to be free meat to the largest organised pedophile ring
on the planet and allowed the sexual abuse of children by priest to
rampage through our society effectively unhindered for more than 100 years.

Of what purpose is a church or religion when the reality of the people
is one such as this?

Of what purpose are Governments an politicians who even today remain
obstinately mute and silent, inactive and apparently in some form of
denial of the depth and the reality of the problem.

Hundreds of thousands of psychologists, care workers, medical
practitioners, police officers, victims and members of congregations
will attest to the undeniable extent of the problem and to the harm
caused to those individuals abused, harm which is exacerbated through
the inaction or inability of our duly elected leaders and other
officials in our society.

Universally the catholic church provides retirement care for priests who
have been repeatedly and credibly accused of sexual abuse, universally
the church uses its wealth to mount endless costly legal actions to
uphold statute of limitations laws where they exist and to undertake
similar processes in the handling of investigations of accusations and
to universally minimise the cause and the effect of the sexual abuses of
our most precious and most vulnerable - the children of our society. A
simple review shows these are undeniable facts in all of these countries.

How vile, how abhorrent, how disgusting. How dare elected and employed
officials of this country stand as a stalwart and proper member of our
society when these are the circumstances in our country. This singular
issues presents the largest single cause of social disruption and
degradation known.

When it is permitted for those who practice a particular religion to
place the law of their religion before the law of their country and that
religion houses, enables, protects legally and supports those of its
priests who have been credibly accused of the sexual abuse of minors and
that universally it has no policy in regards the treatment of those
abused by these clergy then it does become the most deplorable state of
existence for any country which pretends to call itself a democracy for
it simply is not the case.

In each of these countries human rights abuses cannot be called human
rights abuses simply because of the political, legal and financial clout
of the catholic church and the fear it can induce in those of our
leaders and of our society.

No matter what is argued these are simply the facts known to the peoples
of each of these countries and whilst this state remains no amount of
money, no health or policing system will be able to make a dent in these
and the many millions of crimes which result from the sexual abuse of
children by priests and others.

How dare Prime Ministers and Premiers say they represent the mums and
dads of Australia when more than 5 million Australian are survivors of
sexual abuse.

The fact that the sexual abuse of children has been permitted to become
the exclusive domain of religious and churches does mean that through
the failure at a Government level all Australian Police forces have been
held to a state of ransom in regards their ability to investigate and to
charge bishops and priests with the crimes they have committed.

It is a global fact that in each country where the issue of the sexual
abuse of children by catholic priests and nuns that the circumstances
are so amazingly similar as to go beyond the realms of chance or
possibility. In each instance where in-depth investigations have been
permitted that the circumstances and outcomes have been without
exception along amazingly similar lines. The Governments and the people
of each of these countries are aware to similar degrees as those same
jokes are also entrenched into the folkloric culture of each of their
respective countries.

Universally Bishops and Cardinals when forced to testify and when they
have the undeniable facts presented to them do they make such similar
statements as "if only I had known", "there has been an oversight",
"this has been a grave mistake", "look at all the good we do". These are
the public admissions of catholic bishops in any country where they have
been brought to account. No amount of good done, no amount of good done
can ever be an appropriate price for the sexual exploitation of the
children of any religion or the children of any country - no amount of
good can ever be enough to permit this to go unresolved.

It takes no imagination to see the largest ever connected group of
pedophiles in our history in the catholic church. It takes no
imagination for the people of these countries to accept and understand
that this is simply the way it is, they understand that police,
governments are silent and at times complicit in the task of protecting
the good name of the catholic church. This is no more evident than in
the recent cases of the murder of 50,000 native American children and
the possible rape of 100,000 native North American children in Canada.

This structure and methods with an amazing degree of consistency at the
same level in the catholic church across the globe, it is undeniable
that tens of thousands of children have been permitted to become the
sexual fodder of a corrupted religion which is unable to heal itself.

Words, no matter how they are brought forward, whether that be via the
quoting of Biblical texts and excerpts or via the offering up of prayers
and repeated apologies can be offered and argued for another millennium
and the outcomes and actions known and needed will simply be deferred
for one or more millenniums.

It is a well known fact that there have been many attempts to engage
those in the positions of power and authority in repeated fruitless
attempts to draw their attention to the myriad of well researched and
authoritative material which is available today in regards matters such
as restorative justice, healing, the common good of children and the
upholding of human rights for both adults and children - all to no
apparent avail.

Across the globe there are millions of people walking away from this
church as more is becoming known. Billions and billions of parishioners
money is being expended globally in legally fighting the facts, billions
more have been paid out to some of the hundreds of thousands of victims.
Hundreds of thousands and possibly millions of yet to disclose victims

The best, the cream of the teaching of the catholic church has been
unable to produce a result whereby the number of active pedophiles has
been reduced by one hundredth of a percentage point the number of
pedophiles found within its midst against the number found in the
general community. What an abysmal acknowledgment of absolute failure
when the best the church can produce is the average at best.

What an absurd situation when we let these same men use the word of God
and the power of their position and connections, when they use their
wealth to inculcate their beliefs and practices within our society. What
insanity in our society permits us to be directed in the ways of child
raising and family when this situation exists.

What form of political insanity is it when our politicians feel helpless
in the face of the power and the might of these few dysfunctional men?
It can only be their fear of God which holds these stalwarts of our
society back. At the same time it is obvious to all that this is not the
way they were taught in regards their own God - that is unless they too
have been silenced, affected in the same way and are dysfunctional to a
similar and extensive degree.

The mishandling can only be described as a repeated inability of those
in decision making positions to be able to select and implement best of
practice procedures as there is a plethora of research, a plethora of
legal findings, hundreds of parliamentary reviews and investigations
which has been effectively nullified by the legal, political and
religious persuasion through the abusive use of the word of God and the
ultimate abuse of his ultimate power over our very lives and the reward
of an everlasting life.

No man or woman of the God preached to us can stand by and know of and
permit this situation to continue for they simply cannot be inactive and
a man or woman of the God we are told of at the same time - it is simply
impossible and irrational to believe and to argue otherwise otherwise.

To offer other than immediate action, future prevention and justice by
political, legal and other authoritative areas of our society can and
will only be seen as some irrational excuse or fear to act otherwise.

Cathedrals will not collapse, social order will not collapse globally,
the social structure of world will not universally collapse, individuals
will not be personally held responsible for the moral decline of our
entire democratic process.  The operation of large hadron accelerators,
the rotation of the planet, terrorism and other horrors will all remain
unaffected should appropriate restorative justice and a closure to this
episode in our history become a reality.  A reality that every parent
hopes and prays for. This episode in our society is such an episode that
it may even eclipse the horrors perpetrated upon the Jewish people by
our worst known despot.

What actions will our duly elected representatives of all political
persuasions take to bring about justice in regards the sexual abuse by
clergy and the millions of unattended to victims of sexual abuse in our

The words fair go simply fade into insignificance and disappear upon
theabusive  breeze, the bright future millions of our forebears in all
of our  countries affected who fought and died will never have a moment
of sunlight whilst this untenable, unreasonable, abusive and socially
destructive situation continues to remain.

What will our political leaders and representatives do to bring justice
for these horrible and socially destructive crimes against the people
they represent?

Will we get argument, a need to count or to evaluate? Will we get
biblical quotations and moral outrage? Will we weigh up the financial
cost and explain it away to our future children through the incorrect
assumption that we cannot afford to financially? Just as our future
children will consider that as corrupted thinking so too do the millions
of people in each of these countries who once dreamt of bringing their
children up in a safe and appropriate environment.

Those who proffer financial costs as argument have simply reached a
level of sophistry and social corruption whereby a point of putting a
dollar figure on the value of the sexual abuse and exploitation of
someone else's' child by members of a religion or others has a financial
cost which they individually are unwilling to pay.

Hopefully this does not apply to our political leaders of today and
those who uphold justice and the rule of law in our country else we
would quite simply expect the sexual abuse of countless thousands of our
children to continue into the future until real honest men and women,
real people with genuine hearts can make a stand for their children and
the children of others for generations to come.

"How can anyone believe in a God whose servants abuse children and whose hierarchy protects the abuser?"

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.
