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.

Comment:

Hi All,


Great news. We have been contacted by Fr. John Usher. John is the Chancellor at the Sydney Archdiocese.

We have achieved our first major goal in making an appropriate contact with the church. I have replied to John as you will see below.I have pasted his communication and my initial response. I considered the disclaimer and some of the legal implications able to be read into that and felt that should not get in the way of the healing our whole world needs; besides we like ours better.

I feel that if we can say to each other in this early communication that we feel we can begin from a point of mutual acknowledgment.

At this point in time I feel that it would be reasonable to say that, many would feel that if the Church were to acknowledge the individual and the global harm which has resulted from this crisis and if those of us acknowledged that members of clergy were as often and possibly more often the victims of a generational problem which had come along with the church throughout its history -they, just as we were, were born into the situation and those of us who call ourselves victims should acknowledge that the abuses were similar to both clergy and laity - that is our understanding of how we became entrenched in such a prolonged cover-up and the dysfunctional results of that.

There is a belief by many that the Church has no evil intention or master plan for world domination and many feel it simply has inability in this area and becomes dysfunctional whenever it delves into those areas in the same way many of us understand that as we learned to survive and grow. Our experience has shown us that the conversation when it turns to God is a very personal one with many putting God a little before the beginning of evolution as for them God would have been the only one smart enough to kick it off as was necessary for so many of us just so we could survive and that sits comfortable for many of us. It is our hope and our intention to simply put forward the necessity of what we refer to as September 1.

To us here in Australia September 1 is our new Spring and we hope to bring with this new spring the beginning of healing for all of us, molested Catholics and those of all religions molested due to the many global dysfunctions, molested believers and non-believers - molested to  such a degree that the Governments of each of our countries are unable to operate appropriately and fairly on behalf of all of its citizens.

We believe that to begin that process of healing we need to set a mutual date from where we can jointly come together to plan the repair of our world so that we can look forward rather than backwards at the most recent horror or a reminder of past horrors. We feel it is appropriate  that victims should come together with both Church andState to plan an implementation so our governments can build appropriately for our future. We believe we deserve our place at that  table as there are nobetter educated minds in regards the prevention and survival of sexual abuse than those who have both prevented and survived; we feel strongly that a broken social system is not a  suitable environment in which to raise children simply because a healthy and well adjusted child requires a healthy and well adjusted environment in which to peacefully and successfully nurture our children and through doing so we can be assured of their success. Our current environment is not a healthy one as we all know and so it is our hope that the Catholic and other churches as well as our Government will sit with us and communicate in an appropriate manner in order that  we ensure the safety and the future of our children and our society.

I have taken the liberty of forwarding this our communication to the Premiers, the Prime Minister and others from our governments as a demand from those of us who have been adversely affected through their failures as a result of this soon to be past global crisis so that they too can provide to us the people an appropriate form of Government so that each of us who has a  responsibility will have an equal opportunity to have genuine and direct input in their governance rather than the current atrocious systems and failing health and policing we currently have. There is an opportunityto take genuine advantage of the Internet and the ability to create a much brighter future via a truly transparent form of government through  the use of currently availableopen source technologies which our children already understand better than us.

I appreciate this opportunity to thank Benedict for his strength and leadership through speaking to the world on this issue and through making his request for all to come forward to assist in an opportunity to repair and heal all in our society and to make it truly a better place for our children. On behalf of many who took an active part in the preparation of this we ask that you forward this our request to Benedict and to offer our hand to  ask him to join with us to help bringour government to the table so we can begin the tasks of restoration for us all, simply for the sake of our children.

The responsibility we feel towards our children and the children of others has helped us to survive and to bring this email forward in the hope that no more harm will come to children and we hope that you, the Catholic and other Churches will join with us and our government in planning a real future for our governments to jointly  implement with uson behalf of all of our children.

There are many names which share an equal place below, a very few very special to me  people have have been acknowledged on our september12009.com web site and we hope we can add your name and many others in this initiative.

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.
