My daily pledge
I reject the Catholic Church and Christianity at every level due to a lack of evidence
Every day of my life I will actively diminish their affects upon myself and others so that eventually we get to live in a world where no more children will be raped by clergy
Please forward my message from a survivor of child sexual abuse and the cover up on behalf of all our children and the Australian community.
My message to you with regard to involvement in child abuse and its cover in the Catholic Church is firstly directed at George Pell and then at the hierarchy and if necessary down the ranks to the everyday Catholic functioning in our society.
Fix it and fix at in an exemplary example of a just, moral, ethical, human rights based equal way or bugger off with your failures out of our society as you are only an example of the most comprehensive moral failure of all those things we as human beings treasure the most - our children and our fellow human beings.

Were there Catholics together with the dinosaurs? Why didn't they die out?
Can I get my money back if I decide to opt out of heaven and hell?
Do they have weather insurance in hell? Rain sure would be a killer there!
If god created the earth in seven days why is he still creating suns and planets?
God must be obsessional as he only needed to make just our solar system or perhaps just our galaxy - why is he wasting his time making the billion upon billion of others? Would that classify as an obsession when there are so many already?
Why did god include the design flaw that allowed Catholics to come into existence?
How does god explain priestly pedophilia? Or is he silent on it also?
Will the church allow Google to provide a street view of heaven?
Implausible sold to defenceless children makes them Vulnerable to Exploitation
Comprehensive Failure in Plain Sight
Ignorance is the only plea - Sounds Normal
Apart from supernatural beliefs I am not aware of any social systems that engage in ownership or mutilation of children at an early age.
My research shows the Abrahamic religions to be the most obsessed culture with regard the ownership, mutilation and psychological control of children.
The Catholic Church is a particularly well developed human trafficking come human sacrifice culture that requires the bonding of children to an entity outside the natural family; this is achieved through psychological trauma inflicted at the earliest possible moment in the child's life.
People raised in these toxic cultures are very effectively trained to be adults that are in the control of their clergy or hierarchy through bribery, blackmail and other psychological and direct means to be silent or to even protect or fund child sexual abusers in their midst - this can only occur when the natural development of humans beings has been usurped or hijacked by superstitious beliefs and customs.
In our culture this is unable to be seen as our systems are in the control of people raised in the environment as described above.
Give me a copy of the DSM and together we can legitimize any of the more than 800 "brain diseases" and other diagnoses only because they are based on a notion of chemical imbalances (for which there is no empirical evidence to support such a claim) requiring pharma medication only so that you get to "enjoy" suffering until you as mindless and disconnected as your carer.
Don't like the diagnosis? Simply visit another psychologist for a *different cherry-picked outcome based on a psychiatric manual (*schizophrenia, bi-polar, identity disorders and Anxiety are all mandatory for every diagnosis).
Alternatively you can obtain an immediate clean bill of health through claiming belief in the mythical and monstrous Christian god.
That must be so reassuring for them!
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..
