When you see that your government, your religion and its clergy have all failed children and you turn to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as your guide; it's then that you really begin ti feel the pressure from many of your fellow Australians.
Is it anger, frustration or simply sheer exhaustion at the constant placement of religion at the forefront. Not even the findings of the Royal Commission have touched the hearts of federal politicians other than to take a brief moment out to apologize and repeat the well honed pleadings and repeat of failed promises and then it's back to business because there is a need to make money and besides your friend suffers from that horrific issue of the tyranny of distance and is in immediate need for attention from your local politician.
Child sexual abuse victims? Yes, yes thats horrible and like the Church we apologized and ow if you will excuse me I have other more important business to attend to.
Human Rights in Australia? Surely you are kidding me. Ask a politician and you will be told of all the good work just like the Christian religion does and now ask your lawyer and you will learn that they don;t really play a role of any significance in the general day to day business of Australia and its politicians, leaders and clergy of any religion.
What Christian religion champions Human Rights for Children?
The answer to that is None. Not a single one and that is not likely to change until you and others like you get into doing something about it. For me I am currently venting my frustrations by putting these pages together about it and hope you will come along and join in..
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 ...... read more 1544994196 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 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 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.
John's story is just another story of horror, rape, abuse of trust, fraud and deception and cover up in the Catholic religion because our abusers as a child were Catholic or Christian clergy.
