UPDATE: 24 December 2017
The few words that we could all agree upon. The disconnect between child abuse and the response that is now coming from the Catholic Church has yet to reach the survivors hence these are the few words that many can agree upon. A quick clean up in the imagery dept and take away the mythology and that's a new beginning getting under way
"The royal commission has been concerned with the sexual abuse of children within institutions.
"It is important to remember that, notwithstanding the problems we have identified, the number of children who are sexually abused in familial or other circumstances far exceeds those who are abused in institutions.
"The sexual abuse of any child is intolerable in a civilised society.
"It is the responsibility of our entire community to acknowledge that children are being abused. We must each resolve that we should do what we can to protect them."
With the exception of the words quoted above I have a range of issues with regard to the rest of the article and statements made. I would need to examine the ariticle in greater detail and that undertaking is not akin to moving into a toxic toward survivors environment and subsequently cause more pain and suffering to the intended recipients who have to endure in a world that has been traditionally controlled by a system that put more worth into rapists than it put into children.
