UPDATE: Monday 27 November 2017
Renaming avoids the legal definition of refugee which has human rights obligations attached. If you call them illegal aliens there is no reference to the human rights abuses Australia carries out toward genuine refugees. Australia is possibly the most vicious abusers of human rights of all the developed nations. Our history is filled with this style of abuse it renamed kidnapping and human trafficking to be called "forced adoptions" and therefore there is supposed to be no connections with human rights abuses. There are more than 20 examples of this with the most current and active being the survivors of childhood rape by clergy and other religious investigated by a Royal Commission.
Renaming is an old tactic, it is psychological in nature and very effective at hiding growing atrocities
In Australia it is a part of the Christian cultural way of waging war against anything they oppose however it is a primitive tribal habit that is found in every religion and very often in conflicts over resources, properly, land or influence and power over others. Favorite tool of psychopathic and narcissistic types. Abusers at home use the technique simply by following the example of this process being continuously carried out in the name of the Christian religion - it forms the basis of what we refer to as shunning, rejecting and ostracising in religious cultures. Most people are taken in, deceived or used on a daily basis by the renaming technique
Australia has become 'very good at it'. One of the most effective things that provides the ability for Australia to continue to abuse comes as a result of Australia never having enshrined the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Today we remain a non-binding signatory to the UN convention. As well as the Convention on Human Rights we also remain as non binding signatories of the Rights of the Child which outlaws the trafficking of children that we learned from an earlier Royal Commission via the adoption system, the forced adoptions of many Australians, the theft of children from indigenous peoples and the history of human rights abuses goes on. It serves only the abusive institutions that the Royal Commission investigated; it does not serve individual Australians and it does not protect the Human Rights of a single Australian child.
Rape gets called 'an abuse of trust' Child trafficking gets called Forced Adoptions, Stolen Generations, and a range of more going back over almost 90 Royal Commissions
That will continue until Australia gets up to International standards on Human Rights. so that it becomes possible again in Australia to legally enforce a separation between Church and state so the we can honestly refer to ourselves as a secular country.
Atheist survivors of sexual abuse as a child by clergy in Australia, many former Catholics like myself, are threatened and hindered by the circumstances surrounding their abuse.
They are attacked, bullied, blocked and stymied by not only Catholics but also by others affiliated with other religions as well as those who seek the power of religion and those who abuse and rape children and those who seek favor from powerful people through to those who exploit their fellow human beings in every aspect of governance and management and therefore have to keep their atheism and their sexual abuse as a child by Catholic clergy a secret.
They are not afforded the same rights and freedoms in Australia that religions and the religious claim for themselves.
The experience of atheist or at times agnostic survivors has been fraught with risk, danger and at times rejection from enquiries even occuring in the current Royal Commission
John Brown was born in Yea Victoria 3717 on 27 December, 1948. John grew up in Yea, he went to the Catholic school on The Parade Yea and then a final year at Yea High school in Station Street. He undertook an apprenticeship as a Hand and Machine Compositor/Linotype Mechanic at the local newspaper The Yea Chronicle who recently declined to publish John's story. John left Yea after realising that the proprietor and local policeman Bill Ellison along with other local Catholics in his hometown and surrounds at that time were well aware of his abuse and of the rape and abuse of other children in Yea and district and were aware of the many events surrounding the murder of Herbert Henry Kemp of Yea ...... read more and more and more and Site Map
Investigation of an unsolved murder in 1962 can no longer be investigated according to police taskforce SANO because a different pedophile Catholic clergyman who raped a child at age 8 is now dead. As a result of the dead rapist being unconnected with the murder Victorian police remain clue less.
Later in life John married in Toowoomba only to begin the most bizarre period in his life as he learned that he wasnow related by marriage to the then bishop of Toowoomba Bill Morris. Morris was the head of the bishops conference at that time and was the "Go to" person in the country for survivors of childhood sexual abuse by Catholic clergy and yet I was never able to get a time or a conversation with the bishop. I did get conversations or connection with a number of Catholic organisations with varying degrees of weirdness some of which I have written about in my blog The FAQyMe gene & the lifelong search for safe, moral and ethical social justice, the Human Right to a trauma informed and evidence based recovery and social re-engagement unhindered by the fear, anger and blockages from other people's gods .
John is author and publisher of #TraumaTheory and regularly blogs at The FAQyMe gene on his journey, recovery and the horror and the scale of this global issue.
John's personal story is just another from the hundreds of millions of other stories across the globe eminating from the human rights abuses and ongoing horrors of the systemic rape, abuses of trust, fraud, deception and cover up in the global Catholic and other religions. Like those others his "issues in life" arose and remain simply because his abusers as a child were just like theirs in that their rapists and abusers were Catholic or Catholic or Christian clergy and they too remain ineligible or unable to have their human rights upheld in their lifetime..
