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.

The underbelly of sexual abuse within the Church has left an indelible mark on countless lives. However, the echoes of change reverberate through the actions of individuals and communities, who are turning the tide against abuse and fostering a culture of support for survivors.
The narrative of abuse within the church demands an evolving approach to usher in a new era of safety, transparency, and accountability. In this digital age, technology emerges as a powerful ally in combating abuse and supporting survivors. The scope extends from Australia to the global arena, where technological solutions are being employed to create safe reporting channels, monitor compliance with laws and regulations, and educate individuals on abuse prevention.
In Australia, a significant stride was made with the appointment of a Survivor Advocate by the Anglican Church in Adelaide. The advocate, who also serves as a Counselor and Training Coordinator at the University of South Australia, is engaged in initiatives to prevent and respond to sexual harm, bridging the gap between the survivors and the support they need 1.
In Australia, the eSafety Commissioner has outlined a strategy for 2022-25 focusing on countering technology-faceted abuse, which often manifests as an extension of domestic and family violence. The strategy acknowledges the sinister use of technology to coerce, control, and harass individuals, thereby necessitating the development of robust digital safeguards.
A notable initiative in this vein is a digital reporting tool developed by a rape crisis center in Melbourne, Australia. This tool facilitates the reporting of sexual violence incidents, marking a significant stride in providing survivors with a secure channel to voice their experiences and seek justice.
Furthermore, the academic realm is contributing to the cause, with projects such as the one led by Associate Professor Nicola Henry at RMIT University. This project, backed by an ARC Future Fellowship, delves into the efficacy of digital tools in detecting, preventing, and responding to image-based abuse.
The SAFER initiative urges individuals to lend a sympathetic ear to those who confide in them about abuse, emphasizing the profound impact a compassionate response can have. Through educational resources, SAFER empowers individuals to discern the fine line between helping and harming, ensuring that survivors find solace and support in their community 2.
On the prevention frontier, educational programs leveraging technology are taking center stage. For instance, Jesuit Social Services in Australia has launched a pilot initiative called "Stop It Now! Australia." This service provides a confidential helpline via phone, email, or online chat aimed at preventing child sexual abuse.
The Uniting Church Australia has launched the "UCA Says No to Violence" campaign, encouraging congregations to display posters denouncing domestic and family violence. This simple yet powerful gesture fosters a culture of awareness and solidarity against violence within the community 3.
The organization knowmore champions survivor-led advocacy, promoting a proactive engagement with decision-makers. By raising awareness among survivors about the avenues available for advocacy, knowmore is cultivating a groundswell of support for changes in laws, policies, and practices 4.
The White Ribbon Australia's Community Action Group initiative exemplifies the power of community engagement. By galvanizing like-minded individuals around the cause, communities are redefining their stance against violence, whether it's geographically based or centered around faith, cultural, or sporting affiliations 5.
Beyond the shores of Australia, the call for technological interventions resonates in the global landscape. Various nations and organizations are exploring digital platforms to foster education on abuse prevention, ensuring compliance with laws and regulations, and establishing safe reporting channels. These technological solutions, intertwined with legislative frameworks and community engagement, embody a holistic approach towards eradicating the scourge of abuse within religious institutions.
The synergy between technology and human endeavor is forging a formidable front against abuse. As digital solutions continue to evolve, they hold the promise of a safer, more enlightened society where the shadows of abuse are dispelled, giving way to a culture of respect, accountability, and support for survivors. Through these technological avenues, the journey towards healing and justice is not only conceivable but well within reach.
Volunteering and donations further amplify the impact of these initiatives, channeling resources towards organizations dedicated to supporting survivors and advocating change within the Church. The synergy of individual and community actions is not only rewriting the narrative of the Church but also heralding a new dawn of support, advocacy, and change for survivors of abuse.
Through these concerted efforts, individuals and communities are not just spectators but active participants in the crusade against abuse. Their actions are a testament to the transformative power of collective engagement in healing the wounds of the past and paving the way for a future free from the shackles of abuse.
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
