Trauma in Religion





The Lifelong Trauma of a Catholic Childhood

A real life encounter with the Catholic coverup of child sexual abuse

We came forward to the Royal Commission so that children would never experience what we did.

We were promised support "Before, during and after"

The cost of that has been too great for far too many as the support has proven to be be scarce, conflicted, inappropriate and harmful to many who no longer seek or want involvement with religion.

Thousands are still waiting for support and are left to their own devises or have to beg via inappropriate processes for assistance. As a result personal pages are now donation based. Please click to donate.

Once your donation has been made you will be asked to enter the email address and Receipt id so you can access personal pages.

Survivors who came forward to the Royal Commission will be provided with free access - simply email us your request to contact@traumainreligion.com and include your Royal Commission reference number and a telephone contact number where we can contact you to verify your status.

Direct support can be made via:

JohnB - Patrick Smith a contrasting experience

Patrick it has been I just realised a very short while ago that you somehow got to step into some of the toxic insanities in my life.

Here is a takeaway for you - I gage safety against the risks a professional driver would face; I consider the driving environment to be one of high risk and we manage the complexity of risk evaluation. We are told that we survivors do not take risks like other people and I say we take far greater risks when dealing with Institutions and affected people and then I look at the role that you took on and I Thank You for being the safest person from an Institution that I have ever had the pleasure of shaking the hand of.

Thank you for all the help you have provided for me, I have gained greatly from the experience. This fits in right here http://www.bbc.com/news/health-34039054 A life without mental images - its almost a book title.

How do you describe the experience of knowing someone for only 6 months and yet in their engagement with me they have touched safely on a million places in my life since my earliest memories - the return of sanity to us is essential for our wellbeing and I am thankful for you helping me find a safe pathway through a superstitious fog whose origins endorse the consumption of the life and the mind of the vulnerable children that we were as a result of the circumstance of our birth and their place in generational cycles of trauma, control, blackmail, abandonment, threat and insanity perhaps because anything outside of reality and provable science have to be grasped at by the myth holders so that they do not lose access to the power they have that can be used to crush children. I guess they just have not yet worked that one out or they missed something in their childhood, have they not yet learned how to self evaluate; did they miss first principles or do they not understand the words acculturate, death cult, human sacrifice culture. I thought we had taken huge evolutionary steps when humans stopped burying children in post holes and yet they are still being offered up to same toxic mythology and superstition that destroyed our lives

I hope the lack of experienced professionals has at least been touched on in the redress area or at some point in this inquiry as being the lifelong enemy of both church and state despite my lifelong protestations has changed little yet with regard to protecting the rights of children to be free of such bullshit. Becoming an equal human being in my country of birth is still an experience that I am looking forward to - perhaps a different institution in the future..

Wow that highlight of Trauma Informed and Evidence Based support soon got buried in discussions on cherry picked versions of scripture with the jehovahs and the the Catholic bishop and I had to conclude that the problem for those who need a god is that they just got the wrong version as the bishop described so very well. You just had to conjure up a delusion of a happy god and sure enough after a while everything looks rosy and nothing needs attending to, well except ..

That feels better I just needed to grab another space where my type of reality and my understanding can find a place for a moment. Check. Yep. Same form of insanity he had in early childhood.



Is it truly plausible that people can be compromised and kept in a perpetual state of fear from early childhood and on through all of adulthood today as a result of childhood indoctrination? Surely their Human Rights will have been breached if that is the case.

Living with Human Rights Abuses in Australia in 2017 #TraumaTheory Chapter 56 - JohnB - Patrick Smith a contrasting experience

Human rights for Catholic children exist only if they remain bonded through the abusive practices of a culture with the longest history of war, rape, genocide and child abuse humanity has ever encountered.

Human rights do not exist in the Catholic religion unless the perceived rights of gods, demons, angels, devils, poltergeists and a myriad of other mythical creatures and superstitions are met to the satisfaction of those traumatically bonded to Catholicism through their own abusive childhood experience

"Catholicism creates an environment where the child must bend and fold to the experience and the child must distort and fracture its own personality simply so that it may survive in the environment in which it finds itself" JohnB
