The inability of a child to thrive in a Constitutionally protected God based perpetual threat and rape culture is not a fault of the child; however it does become their odious responsibility upon reaching adulthood. The Christian religion at it's core is a toxic mechanism whereby intergenerational trauma has been kept alive, active and deeply embedded in each new generation over the past 2,000+ years.

Under Pell, the unpleasant practice flourished of delating "offenders" to Rome: reporting "innovations" or minor infractions, or theological dissent, such as questioning clerical celibacy. Bill Morris was removed as bishop of Toowoomba,* a Queensland diocese, for merely suggesting that women priests might be worth discussing. Progressive Australian Catholics wryly noted that authorities in Rome acted far more quickly and decisively against a priest who altered the Mass or advocated ending clerical celibacy than one who abused children
Jeff recalls how exemplary Morris was in dealing with child sexual abuse. You will recall that he asked Rome to delay his forced retirement until he could deal with the abuse crisis in a Toowoomba school where he had even had the foresight to engage a retired High Court judge to mediate the issue. Rome had other priorities preferring that the diocese be without a bishop while that matter was resolved.But the bishop they were trying to protect says he finds it "stunning" they didn't report the claims.
Principal Terry Hayes, assistant principal Megan Wagstaff, student protection officer Catherine Long and senior Catholic Education Office staff Chris Fry and Ian Hunter first heard pedophilia allegations against a Toowoomba primary school teacher Gerry Byrnes in September 2007.
None of them ever told police or parents.
The former bishop of Toowoomba, Bill Morris, who didn't hear about the abuse until after Byrnes' 2008 arrest, can't understand why all five failed to report him.
"It's stunning, I know. I can't get my head around it. Like I said to someone - well, we spoke about it recently. It's not rocket science," the bishop told the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse on Monday.
The Catholic Church has proved it had a system on paper to report pedophilia, but witnesses have spoken of a more deeply ingrained culture of silence and protecting the Church.
"Do not compromise the bishop," was the motto of the diocese at the time, claimed Mr Hayes, Mr Fry and Mr Hunter.
Bishop Morris said Church culture was to not believe child sex abuse victims.
"Yes, and I think it may be, say, sometimes we've got to check out the story because you never know, they might be just making it up and we don't want to make a report on someone that's going to ruin the rest of their lives, I think that could possibly be part of it," he said.
"We are Christian faith communities, called to work
together in a spirit of trust and openness, to bring about
hope, love, justice and peace in our world. " - who is we?
Bishop William Morris, Toowoomba
Recent findings in Spain found that 0.6% of the population of Spain had been sexually abused by Roman Catholic priests and laity.
Current world population is 8 billion - 0.6% = 48 million possibly raped by Catholics globally.
"This is a matter for the church and I respect the internal judgements of the church. I don't stand outside the church and provide them with public lectures in terms of how they should behave. I've noted carefully what his Holiness has said in the United States. Obviously that was a source of great comfort and healing in the United States. I'm like all Australians very much looking forward to what the Pope has to say here in Australia as well, as I am to my own conversation with the Pope later this morning." Kevin Rudd, Prime Minister of Australia, 17 July 2008. more

Wednesday, 22 June 2022 - I may not have this down syntax, word and letter perfect or with
absolute precision in every aspect; however time and the evidence will show that I am closer to the truth than
any religion has been or will likely be.
Let history be the standard by which that is measured.
