A better way

on behalf of the children

and the facts of their lives

A broken social system is not a suitable environment in which to raise children

A healthy and well adjusted child requires a healthy and well adjusted environment in which to grow

There are no better educated minds in regards the prevention and survival of sexual abuse than those who have both prevented and survived.

re: Sept 1 2009


How long must it take for you to to learn to say NO?

These are human rights abuses

These actions by the Church are crimes against Humanity

Your actions oppose and defy our Justice System

Your failure to act defies the priciples of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Your failure to act defies the priciples of The Rights of The Chid legislation

Your failure to act makes my Government complicit in the cover up of the sexual abuse of children by clergy

Your failure to act on this is why we call you hypocrite and fool

I could never bring myself to vote for someone who fails my country so easily

Members of my family fought and died to uphold our Democracy. Your failure to act destroys our Democracy

I want no part in your criminal complicity

Children before Church

Justice before Church

The Law of Australia should come before the Law of the Church - this makes a mockery of our form of Justice and Democracy
As an Australian citizen I expect you to act in support of September 1 2009 and to have your support in obtaining from both your Government and from the Church your policy and plan on how you both are going to repair our society.
Premier, make that happen by September 1 2009

After all this time this is the best the Catholic church - the shining light of Christianity, the pin that pri cks our social conscience, the voices which sway our society and this is the best we get.

It is time for an end to all this hypocrisy. Make September 1 the last day we get to read of yet another failure by the leading Christian Church. Demand from the Church a single global policy in response to the global scope of the sex ual abuse of our children and the Churchs' role in its cover up. Victims from around the world have offered September 1 as a date for the global church to clearly put down for all of us just how they are going to repair our society after more than 50 years of cover up.

What is written of here is simply a continuation of centuries of habit of covering up for this Church. The healing victims want and need can only come from the results of making September 1 a global day for the World to see if the Catholic Church actually does have the ability to act appropriately and in a socially responsible manner rather than its socially destructive litany of failures.

What possible reason could there be for not setting a date and to get a single written policy. A Church which is incapable of producing something as simple as that as a first step in ensuring the safety and protection of our children is simply a social failure due to its inability in regards the children of our society and fails the first requirement of being a normal parent and a human being.

On the sexual abuse, exploitation & deception of children

For those who have and for those who want to 'Hit the Wall'

There is no excuse for sexual abuse according to our law and government except when the abuse has been carried out by Catholic clergy.

"This is a matter for the church and I respect the internal judgements of the church. I don’t stand outside the church and provide them with public lectures in terms of how they should behave..."

Kevin Rudd, Prime Minister of Australia, 17 July 2008.

This is perhaps the most horrific act of abandonment perpetrated against the children of a specific religion by an Australian head of State and is recorded in our history for perpetuity as being made by Kevin Rudd on 17 July 2008, when he spoke in regards those affected by the sexual abuses carried out by Catholic clergy.http://www.pm.gov.au/media/Interview/2008/interview_0363.cfm

This is a deeply flawed and invalid response both morally and legally which includes all victims of clergy abuse being referred over to the leader of the Catholic Church or the respective leaders of other Churches or Religions when quite clearly sexual abuse by clergy is a phenomena found in many Churches and religions and it simply is not within the Prime Ministers realm to pass responsibility for those sexually abused by Catholic and non-Catholic clergy over to the Catholic church or anyone else.

Is it any wonder our children are confused?

No wonder our children are confused - if we continually send confusing messages to our children then it is us who is acting irrationally when we demand the right to sanction them for acting in the same way we do, or in the same way our Government services do.

No amount of resources, education, laws, treatments or levels of incarceration and sanctions can educate a child to function both successfully and rationally in a society when the very society which is demanding that is unable itself to function at the levels demanded. There is no rational response to such an irrational situation.

Is it any wonder so many are confused?

Government and our religions are unable to provide and implement successful strategies in regards sexual abuses by clergy and other in the community.

Government and our religions repeatedly and stubbornly refuse to consult with the victims of these abuses by clergy and others in the community and their carers and advocates.

Is it any wonder so many are abused and re-abused?

How can they expect our children to act in a more adult and responsible manner, a manner which is above the examples set by our Governments and religious.

How irrational and foolish are we when we use sanctions against those who are unable to perform on demand at a higher level than those applying the sanctions.

Is it any wonder our children think we are foolhardy and stupid?

Of course we can always sanction our children severely for saying that we got it wrong. We can also sanction them for getting it wrong themselves in a confused world. Their need to survive and remain accepted as children will simply cause them to cede to those sanctions. This simply shows that if you beat a child hard enough and demand that he agree with you they must if they simply want to be loved by their parents and elders. If they want to ever experience the love of those who sanction they simply have no choice but to cede and conform to the power held over them - this use of power proves nothing other than acknowledging the fact that you can force someone into submission. It in no way proves your are on the right track.

Quite simply if these men genuinely had the ear of God as they say, it simply would not have taken 500 years as in the case of Mr Galilei and the shape of the earth, nor would it take very long to resolve the sexual abuse issue if they simply had 10 seconds with God.

It is clear that they simply do not have that line to Jesus Christ because quite simply if they did they would act differently.
