Trauma in Religion

Government Funded Introduction or Indoctrination?

Is the introduction process a safe and ethical one for children? Research does not support this notion.

In the context of the National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research (2007) - Updated 2018, the introduction process of religious indoctrination in the Catholic Church, as discussed in the previously provided studies, raises several ethical concerns in regard to children's safety, autonomy, and psychological well-being. The National Statement provides guidelines for ensuring that research involving human subjects is conducted ethically and with respect for human rights and dignity.

The Trauma Theory hypothesis, which posits that religious indoctrination may have negative consequences on children's mental health and well-being, is supported by the findings of the previously provided studies. These studies suggest that the introduction process may not be safe or ethical for children, given the potential risks associated with coercion, loss of autonomy, and the negative impact on children's psychological development.

In light of these findings and the National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research, it is crucial to consider whether the introduction process should be allowed to continue without further evaluation of its safety and ethical implications. The global evidence of child sex crimes in numerous religious institutions, including the Catholic Church, underscores the urgency of this issue.

To ensure the protection of children's rights, well-being, and safety, it is essential to examine the introduction process and related practices in religious institutions, including the Catholic Church. If no safe means can be designed or implemented to test the safety of the introduction process, it may be necessary to reevaluate the practice and consider implementing stricter regulations or even discontinuing the practice in Australia.

Furthermore, the practice of religious indoctrination should not be allowed to bypass safety and ethical scrutiny or a determination of the degree of risk in areas such as attachment, psychological safety, modern-day slavery, entrapment of children, psychological battery, fraud, and deception. Researchers, policy makers, and religious institutions must work together to ensure that the rights, safety, and well-being of children are prioritized in all aspects of religious practice and education.

The inability of a child to thrive in a God based rape culture can never be the product of a fault with the child.


There is no future for children or humanity in a society that repeatedly forgets how to protect its children and its most vulnerable by constantly hijacking the rights of the child to appease and to account for the failures of the only infallible man on the planet who along with his clerics consistently gets the rights of children as wrong as it is possible to be.
