I am appalled that an evidence based inquiry has yet to pose any meaningful questions relating to the reality of hundreds of thousands of survivors across the globe or questions based on known science and evidence in relation to entrapment and grooming using implausible unsupportable claims for the existence of a mythical god in this whole scenario.
It appears that this entire aspect remains unquestioned with no research in this regard being mentioned while an examination of existing science shows many reasons for concern including understanding of religion as a grooming process that takes this issue well beyond the simplicity of the currently favored notion of clericalism.
The understanding of many over the past weeks has been one that shows an obscene focus on what is appropriate support for abusive priests and those wanting to enter a religious life while the reality of the torture survivors experience and the human rights breaches they have encountered over their entire lifetimes appears to have not entered the minds of Commissioners and those working for it - that takes a huge effort to achieve and yet the Commission shows every sign of achieving that.
That ignoble achievement sets the scope for the continuing entrapment and the subsequent abuse of millions more children on into the future with men who failed on a gargantuan scale given a platform global where the future entrapment and grooming of children in religious environments is provided with a form of legitimacy that has come at the cost of the sanity and the truth that so many survivors have brought forward.
The message to survivors right across the world is one that says a lack of compliance with the mythology and superstitions of gods will not be tolerated; it says the Commission remains blind to the reality of where the evidence actually takes you - if that is the case then the exercise will have been a fraudulent one that eventually supports the grooming and the exploitation of children and the vulnerable.
The Commission it seems took two and half years to learn that a trauma informed approach was legitimate while it believed that is quest for evidence does not require it to question the basis upon which the entire Christian religion is based upon.
There has been no call for the Christian God to come forward and to offer its' opinion or to explain why it's representatives repeatedly and consistently resort to grooming and sexual abuse of children and the vulnerable.
This invisible god is the premise of the entire structure and according to the present state we are expected to go along with what we clearly know and understand to be mythology and superstition.
The failure guaranteed re-education of the Catholic and other churches will have cost more in lives, family and community destruction, human rights abuses and prolonged human suffering than the $500 million spent of this inquiry..
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.
