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.

How the Catholic Church and other religions have exploited Australia's charity sector and justice system to cover up their crimes of child abuse.
The Catholic Church and other religions have been exposed as perpetrators and enablers of child sexual abuse in Australia, as well as in many other countries around the world. The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, which ran from 2013 to 2017, revealed the shocking extent and impact of the abuse, and made hundreds of recommendations to prevent and respond to it. However, the Catholic Church and other religions have not fully accepted or implemented these recommendations, and have continued to use their power and influence to evade accountability and justice. In this blog post, I will explore how the Catholic Church and other religions have exploited Australia's charity sector and justice system to cover up their crimes of child abuse, and what can be done to stop them.
The charity sector: a shield and a sword
The Catholic Church and other religions have a long history of providing social services, such as education, health care, and welfare, to the Australian community. These services are often funded by the government, through grants, contracts, or tax exemptions, as well as by donations from the public. The Catholic Church and other religions claim that these services are part of their charitable mission, and that they are motivated by their faith and values to serve the common good.
However, the Catholic Church and other religions have also used these services as a shield and a sword to protect and promote their interests, at the expense of the rights and well-being of the people they are supposed to serve.
The Catholic Church and other religions have used their charity status and funding to:
• Gain access and authority over vulnerable children and families, and to abuse, exploit, or indoctrinate them, often with impunity or complicity from the state and the society

The justice system: a barrier and a battleground
The Catholic Church and other religions have also faced legal challenges and actions from the victims and survivors of abuse, as well as from the advocates and activists who support them. These legal challenges and actions have sought to hold the Catholic Church and other religions accountable and responsible for their crimes of child abuse, and to obtain justice and compensation for the victims and survivors. The legal challenges and actions have taken various forms, such as criminal prosecutions, civil lawsuits, or public inquiries.
However, the Catholic Church and other religions have also used their power and influence to obstruct and undermine the justice system, and to prevent or delay the legal challenges and actions from succeeding. The Catholic Church and other religions have used their power and influence to:
• Deny or minimise the extent and impact of the abuse, and to discredit or silence the victims and survivors, or the advocates and activists, who speak out or seek justice.
• Cover up or destroy the evidence or records of the abuse, or to refuse or resist to cooperate or comply with the investigations or requests of the authorities or the courts.
• Manipulate or intimidate the witnesses or the jurors, or to influence or bribe the judges or the lawyers, or to lobby or pressure the politicians or the media, who are involved or related to the legal challenges or actions.
• Appeal or challenge the decisions or outcomes of the legal challenges or actions, or to seek or obtain special treatment or exemption from the laws or rules that apply to them.
The way forward: a call for action and change
The Catholic Church and other religions have shown that they are not willing or able to reform themselves, or to address the crisis of child abuse within their ranks, without external pressure and intervention. The Catholic Church and other religions have also shown that they are not trustworthy or reliable partners, or responsible or accountable service providers, in the charity sector or the justice system. Therefore, it is up to the government, the civil society, and the public, to take action and make change, to stop the Catholic Church and other religions from exploiting Australia's charity sector and justice system, and to ensure the protection and justice of the victims and survivors of abuse.
Some of the possible actions and changes that are needed are:
• To review and reform the Constitution, the laws and policies that regulate the charity sector, the health and education systems and the justice system, to ensure that they are consistent, comprehensive, and effective, and that they apply equally and fairly to the Catholic Church and other religions, as well as to other organisations and individuals.
• To monitor and enforce the compliance and performance of the Catholic Church and other religions, as well as of other organisations and individuals, with the laws and policies that regulate the charity sector and the justice system, and to impose sanctions and penalties for any breaches or violations.
• To support and empower the victims and survivors of abuse, as well as the advocates and activists who support them, to access and participate in the charity sector and the justice system, and to provide them with information, resources, and assistance, such as legal advice, counselling, or compensation.
• To educate and engage the public and the media about the issues and challenges that affect the charity sector and the justice system, and to encourage them to be aware and involved, such as by reporting or exposing any misconduct or corruption, or by demanding or supporting any action or change.
The Catholic Church and other religions have exploited Australia's charity sector and justice system to cover up their crimes of child abuse, and to avoid or evade accountability and responsibility. This is unacceptable and intolerable, and it must stop. It is time for action and change, to protect and justice the victims and survivors of abuse, and to restore and improve the charity sector and the justice system.

The Reality Field Guide for Constitutional Change#JusticeReformed
Conflict of Interest: When an institution is both the alleged perpetrator of harm and the provider of care to the victims of that harm, there is a clear conflict of interest. This can undermine the trust in the care provided and potentially re-traumatize individuals seeking support.
Moral and Ethical Considerations: There is a moral and ethical imperative for care providers to act in the best interests of their clients. When the care provider is associated with the source of trauma, this can be compromised. Survivors might feel pressured to forgive or reconcile, which can impede their healing process.
Secular Society and Human Rights: In a secular society that upholds human rights, it's crucial that victims of abuse receive impartial and unbiased support. This includes access to services that are independent of the institutions involved in their trauma.
Legal and Human Rights Obligations: There may also be legal and human rights obligations to consider. It's important that survivors have access to justice and reparations, which can be hindered by conflicts of interest.
Transparency and Accountability: There needs to be transparency and accountability in how these institutions handle allegations of abuse and provide support to victims. Without this, there is a risk of perpetuating abuse and obstructing justice.
In light of these issues, it may be more appropriate for independent organizations, unaffiliated with any religious institution, to provide medical and mental health services to survivors of abuse. This would help to ensure that the care provided is free from conflicts of interest and aligned with the best interests of the survivors.
It's also important for secular societies to critically evaluate the role of religious institutions in public life, especially when it comes to issues of health and welfare, to ensure that human rights are respected and upheld.

"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."
