That old trait of having Christian police investigate the crimes of Christian clergy should be over; but it isn't.
Safe refuge should be available to survivors but it isn't.
Justice must be served to the victims but that's not happening either and the silence is defeaning
2018 and another investigation somewhere on the globe is finding the horror and the extent of the child rape issue by Catholic and other clergy. To the extent it is no longer possible to consider that God in any way is able to protect children from sexual predators who tout the words of the gods as a way of luring children into an illicit sexual relationship. Traditionally this has been tolerated mostly because of the positions usurped in society by clerics from all religions.
Making allowances for failures of God is an ongoing profitable business.
Set the bar unimaginably high for them and no bar for yourself.
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 and then a final year at Yea High. He undertook an apprenticeship as a Hand and Machine Compositor/Linotype Mechanic at the local newspaper The Yea Chronicle who recently declined to publish anything on John's story. He left Yea after realising that the proprietor and local policeman Bill Ellisson along with other local Catholics in Yea and surrounds at that time were aware of his abuse and of the rape and abuse of other children in Yea and were aware of the many unreported issues surrounding the murder of Herbert Henry Kemp of The Parade Yea in 1962 ...... read more
Investigation of an unsolved murder in 1962 can no longer be investigated according to police taskforce SANO because a 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 clueless.
Later in life John married in Toowoomba only to find that he was related to the then bishop of Toowoomba Bill Morris. Morris was the head of the bishops conference 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.
