Doing the rounds once again looking for suitable professional support and finding it a process that has more failures than successes. Finding a neutral let alone supportive psychologist or psychiatrist who is geared towards the reality of being human rather than conforming with the centuries of control of those who object to the undue influence of religion in our every day lives. I use the example of police involvement in not investigating themselves or other police when the rape of children was involved through the 20s, 30s and on through the 90s and still goes on today in the same systematic way it has gone on for centuries in Australia and in many other countries across the globe.
We see it and we understand the harm it causes but it's just not happening in Australia..
When you advance for a moment the notion of what a powerful abuser could or would do to those in a population where your weapons are the tools of education. If you were in a position you would run universities, medical, care, education from every conceivable angle and you would as quickly as possible brand those who survived pr attempted to speak out against you as insane or criminal and you build that in via your government funded education system that you have complete freedom to use to indoctrinate in any particular whim of the leader of a foreign nation while claiming to be the only infallible individual on the face of the planet and is the self declared only direct connection available with the creator of the universe who personally communicates into the head of the infallible individual and the rest of the planet is supposed to nod in fear filled awe - the insanity of it leaves one gasping for fresh air and a location in every state that is guaranteed to be free from any unverified claim of any religion simply because that is the first and most important thing to be available for survivors in their recovery process and is the one that is not available and has no likelihood of ever being publicly acknowledged as having a need or bearing of the welfare of the victims of clericalism.
If there were to be a next appointments I would begin by saying that unfortunately issues of trust and a lack of knowledge have thrust themselves disruptively into my life and my recovery; as well they have interrupted my thoughts on the scale and spread of trauma originating from the traits that must exist in a successfully educated Catholic - ref the Royal Commission evidence that a successful education results in a sexually dysfunctional immature individual that is up to 6 points below average) and how that leads on to guidance in a recovery program for those who had the misfortune of being raised in a bizarre sexually obsessive, fear and suffering misogynistic human rights denying control and manipulative greedy and powerful nationally accepted religious cult.
Sure you can follow the notions of the DSM however it is not in my best interest to delve yet again through my Chronic Childhood Trauma (A diagnosis that is precise accurate and factual and yet is not a listing in DSM) so that my fears that the religious cult is so ingrained in the society in which I live that the expression used by George Pell that we survivors are seen as enemies of the Church was only part of it.
He did not go on to mention that many in Australia consider that we live in a Christian country and what George Pell says is a Christian directive that the millions of traumatized and trained victims of Catholicism will be automatically bound to follow. It;s almost as if someone is able to abuse the power of religion and to use it against your personal and professional victims and you are protected because the rape of children has been endemic in the Catholic religion for so long that our legal system has integrated that into our law to such a degree that millions of Australians who human rights have been abused remain ignored and unacknowledged.
It certainly does follow here in Australia as were we not just enemies of the Catholic Church we were enemies of the state and every other Christian religion that has a commercial or government funded service or interest in the commercialization of the health and education systems that obviously must have also been bent to the whims of these corrupt religions as our academics were and remain silent in far too many areas even today.
It was not just Policing it was politics, education, health and community as well.
That change is slow is obvious. That the necessary change is unlikely unless we also learn the truth as to why politicians, public servants and people in authority in any dimension in Australia was aware of the problem of clergy raping children and that nothing was being done or had been done for decade after decade.
Things have changed in small ways as today you get a public apology yet there is no explanation beyond that except to wail that the government just like the Church cannot afford to pay for the harm it has caused to its citizens and once again the vulnerable will have been exploited and provided with the facts of an affordable redress package based on false evidence provided to the Royal Commission about the state of the wealth of the catholic Church in Australia where a lazy billion or two would solve our housing crisis and poverty as well but of course there is no profit in spending when all your efforts are towards obtaining funding to keep so many loyal Catholics in highly paid employment.
We have had the investigations by the Royal Commission and the obvious need for change is urgent while pundits ask of the significance of Australia's renewed interest in the United Nations while we are the only democratic country on the face of the planet who is yet to enshrine the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and half a dozen or so other Conventions into the law in every state and jurisdiction in the country.
Having no human rights and being based on the corrupt notions of Church leaders and willing and the indoctrinated abeyance of politics and policing has led to the rape of possibly millions of Australian adults and children over the past hundred or so years.
Put aside the potential for a million victims for the moment and simply work with several hundred of thousands of citizens raped by leading members of a religious cult led from a foreign nation that has all encompassing control over its members though a perpetual threat against their life either in this existence or the next that Catholics have been indoctrinated about since early childhood.
Control of Australian citizens minds by the embedding of fear through blackmail, bribery and threat has been permitted by successive governments; not just permitted our government heavily finances this all under the guise of the good works of the largest know pedophile ring and rapist predators and those who have been traumatized through fear to blindly protect and fund that the world has ever experienced.
The greatest horror producing religion in modern history is not confined to Catholic clergy however it leads in every sector of depravity and dysfunction and the inability to comprehend what it is to be a human being in line with the truth of the evidence that science has been exposing over the past 150+ years.
Any wonder such a power group wants to keep control of such a situation.
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..
