What is Cover up Day about?
Copver up Day is about providing the first safe haven for those who have been rejected, ostracised and shunned from the families and communities becauase they spoke out about being abused by clergy and other religious.
The first requirements in any treatmnent or recovery is to stablise the victim and to then provide them with a safe place so that what ever is need to get recovery happening can take place.

These atrocities are still too hot a potatoe for weakling politicians to address it seems as until then there will be growing need for safe havens.

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.
