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.

Community Cabinet Toowoomba :: When is it time for a society to question?

When is it time for a society to question when around us we see what has been the shining light of Christianity blundering and being bludgeoned through the courts of some countries. Where in others investigations have been demanded and carried out to show the depth and the extent of these abuses and the findings are simply staggering on asocial scale. In Canada not only the Catholic church but the Uniting Church of Canada and others have been implicated in the genocide of more than 50,000 Native American children, the theft of their land and their rights. Alaska finds itself the global dumping ground for abusive clergy from the Catholic church where entire social structures have had their once sound social systems destroyed through sexual abuse graft and corruption on an enormous scale. In Brazil the Catholic church rails against and excommunicates a nine year old girl because she underwent a government authorised procedure to ensure her survival - at the same time it effectively exonerates the rapist.
Insurance and religion around the world have effectively established a global regime of statute of limitations laws which have been ruthlessly exploited by many religions to limit the financial exposure of their church due to the crimes of their clergy. That the Catholic church has globally conducted itself in such similar ways is on display in dozens of countries today.This is patently and clearly evident in the repeated failures and ignorance shown by bishops who have been deposed in legal actions in the United States.

When the following can conspire to hijack and manipulate a society to such a degree in order to maintain the silence and secrecy of the Catholic and of other religious sects and groups of the clergy abuse issue in our society.

When universally statute of limitations laws even when windows are opened preclude the vast majority of victims of abuses by the church to lodge their claims.

When governments across the globe are bullied by Bishops and religious leaders into complying with what we all know to be failed policies and practices it is time for our society to question that.

When media are afraid to report or are unwilling to report on the events taking place in other countries in regards clergy abuse; in particular in regards the Catholic church,however this is not confined to just the Catholic church alone. Almost all religious groups  have issues with clergy abuse. It is safe to say that it is impossible to name a religious group which does not experience this problem.

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.
