UPDATE: 23 December 2017
80% of the population wants control and regulation based on Australian law; the 20% balance want some combination of religious law which they claim is their due right under the freedom to practice their religion no matter how egregious their crimes are, no matter how many children are used via rape and abuse.
Effectively the public argument has now shifted to what is most important to the Church and its hierarchy of dysfunctional clergymen and women and their dysfunctional followers. It is obvious that vulnerable children and gullible adults are an essential requirement in allowing clergy to relieve themselves sexually without impeding their journey to Valhalla. Ooops I think I sent them to the wrong heaven; no matter both are just as fictional and delusional as each other and here in Australia we have and will expend a great deal on allowing the delusional their favorite sexual past-time just because they are another dysfunctional, delusional Christian faith with no supporting evidence to uphold their myriad of claims of supernatural, speaking on behalf of the gods, their rights and on endlessly all designed and aimed at increasing the vulnerability of children so that Catholic clergy who when they have a whim to relieve their sexual tension in the quickest and easiest manner possible without being impeded by Australian law or their own religious laws can take hold of accessible children and rape them there and then knowing that they are protected in every possible way - such is the freedom to practice a religion when it is unregulated.
You thought at one point in your life how amazing it has been that we humans live in the most advanced civilization yet but the reality of that is that we are still under the control of primitive rape cultures who want to continue their bondage style of psychology and child abuse unhindered in the presence of boundless irrefutable facts as to the harm they have caused humanity for a thousand years and more.
A systemic and endemic rape culture got us here and many will still leap to their defence because they have been sold the illusion of a salvation in another life and you once thought we were the delusional ones but now you know the truth and that leaves it up to you as to how to stem the tide of unhindered rape of women and children by clergy .
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..
