Noting history in August 2017
Thoughts from 26 August, 2017
HISTORY MADE IN 2017:
The world is just now beginning to be able to describe the harm to society across the globe done through the rape of the children of religious communities by their clergy.
Another chapter of horror and terror enforced onto the children of entire populations is written in the annuls of time.History will look back with deep and severe shame.
The gods and their religions have failed humanity and we need to turn to evidence based systems if we are ever going to keep our promise to the thousands who came forward so that the words "Never again" will have real meaning if not for those who came forward then for those yet to come.
Never allow Australian governments, Australian policing and Australian communities to ever again be silent and complicit about the abuse of children

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.
