Why only terrorists? Hang Catholic Rapist Priests too, deliver justice!

This would only be in line with their own hocus-pocus teachings.The catholic Church has continuously investigated sexual abuse and procedures by their own ilk, since the Council of Elvira in 309 C.E. and has nevertheless indulged in these crimes ever since, for nearly 2000 Years.If we now start to believe or trust, liars, criminals, cheats and deceivers, we have only ourselves to blame.

They lie in the name of their 'Lord',

Accusations against priest now being investigated by police

ALLEGATIONS made against an accused pedophile priest during last year's North Coast Children's Home inquiry are now subject to a police investigation, documents before the Royal Commission have revealed.
Reverend Campbell Brown, a retired Grafton priest believed to be living in the Newcastle area, is accused of sexually assaulting children, including whistleblower Richard "Tommy" Campion, while he was in a position of trust at the Lismore home.
Documents tendered to the commission this week confirm Rev Brown was referred to the police in December last year.
He had previously been referred to the Child Abuse Squad in 2006.
At the time, the Grafton Diocese was told Rev Brown had not had any contact with the Church since the ordination of women, was nearly 80 years old and was vision impaired.
The commission heard the Diocese was first made aware of allegations against Rev Brown and another priest - Rev Winston Morgan, through a letter, written by Mr Campion in 2002.

Salvo admits burning child with a cigarette

DAN BOX THE AUSTRALIAN FEBRUARY 01, 2014
A SALVATION Army major suspended this week "in light of evidence tendered to the royal commission" is alleged in reports dating back to 1974 to have sexually and physically abused children.
Several years before the current commission hearing, the army paid compensation to two men who alleged they were sexually abused by Major John McIver, who has denied these claims.
Confidential correspondence tendered to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse shows Mr McIver criticising the army's response to allegations of child abuse. "Every Tom, Dick and Harry who was ever unloved by his mother and ended up in an Army institution now feels emboldened to shift the blame because he/she thinks there might be money in it," Mr McIver wrote.
The 2009 letter, sent after the Salvation Army received two separate allegations of sexual assault, concludes: "I have a rather satisfying and enjoyable life to lead and you won't want to be troubled by me making any premature responses."
The commission is investigating the alleged abuse of dozens of children by five Salvation Army officers at homes in Queensland and NSW between 1957 and 1975.

Department imposes strict childcare conditions on YMCA NSW

A government department has written to YMCA NSW expressing doubt that it is a child-safe organisation and imposing tough new conditions on its childcare licence based on evidence from the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.
A year after one of its staff Jonathan Lord was jailed for molesting boys as young as six in his care, and a month after scorching publicity and damning evidence about lax child-safety practices, an inspection last November revealed some childcare staff at YMCA Caringbah where Lord worked were still ignorant of child-protection laws and their obligation to comply with them, the commission has been told.

Sex with students claims: female teacher quits top Catholic boys school

A teacher has resigned from one of the north shore's leading Catholic boys schools, St Aloysius College, after an internal investigation revealed she had been having "inappropriate relationships" with a number of boys in year 12 last year.
It is understood the teacher had sex with at least two boys at the school, including one who was a member of the school's leadership group.
The boys were over the age of 16 but, because of the student-teacher relationship, the alleged contact contravened the rules of the school and child protection legislation.
It is believed that the events came to light at the school after a parent became aware of the teacher's relationship with the son.

Salvo dismissed amid more abuse evidence

A man, now a miner, was so distraught by memories of what had happened to him at a Salvation Army boys home in Sydney that he could not read his evidence at a royal commission inquiry.
When he took the stand at a public hearing into child sexual abuse on Thursday, the man identified as FV, faltered as he told about hearing his younger brother was raped.
They had been sent to the Bexley Boys Home in Sydney south in 1974 when Captain Lawrence Wilson was in charge and placed in different dormitories.
In evidence read on his behalf by Simeon Beckett counsel assisting the commission, FV said he was raped by Cpt Wilson and a few weeks later was collected by a man and woman and taken to a house in Punchbowl, Sydney.

Franziskus: Expriester in die Kirche einbinden

Der Innsbrucker Bischof, Manfred Scheuer, zieht eine Bilanz des Ad-limina-Besuchs im Vatikan. Dem Papst, sagt Scheuer, gehe es nicht so sehr um Moral als um die Gottesfrage.
 (Die Presse)
Vatikanstadt. Keine konkreten Rezepte, keine Ankündigung unmittelbar bevorstehender Reformen, aber die Gewissheit, dass Papst Franziskus „sehr offen für den Dialog“ ist und dass zukunftsträchtige Dialogprozesse auch tatsächlich angestoßen sind. Das ist es, was der Innsbrucker Bischof, Manfred Scheuer, vom fünftägigen Ad-limina-Besuch im Vatikan „erfreut und ermutigt“ mit nach Hause nimmt.

Fonds nicht ausgeschöpft Ex-Heimkinder nutzen Entschädigung nicht

Traumatisierte Heimkinder aus den 50er und 60er Jahren haben ein Recht auf Entschädigung. Doch viele scheuen sich, die Scham zu überwinden und ihr Schicksal preiszugeben.

Der Hilfsfonds für Opfer brachialer Heimerziehung im Westen ist anders als der Topf für Ostdeutschland noch gut gefüllt. In den ersten beiden Jahren seien erst Leistungen für 66 Millionen Euro beantragt worden, weitere 54 Millionen Euro stünden noch bereit, teilte das Bundesamt für Familie und zivilgesellschaftliche Aufgaben in Köln mit.

Ex-Heimkinder brechen ihr Schweigen : "Liederliches Subjekt"

Sie wurden als Luder oder Kriminelle stigmatisiert. Doch ganz normale Kinder und Jugendliche lebten in den 50er und 60er Jahren in deutschen Heimen. Jahrzehnte später kommt das oft verschwiegene Unrecht ans Licht.
Der Tod der Mutter bedeutete für Heidelore Rampp den tiefsten Einschnitt ihres Lebens. Bis dahin wuchs das Einzelkind behütet im Schoß der Familie in Karlsruhe auf. "1957 wurde auf Knopfdruck alles anders", erzählt die 68-Jährige, die heute in Stuttgart lebt. Damals war sie zwölf Jahre alt und kam auf Wunsch ihres Vaters in ein Heim. Die nächsten viereinhalb Jahre waren eine Tortur: Sie wurde nicht nur erniedrigt und ausgebeutet, sondern auch geschlagen und vergewaltigt.

In den alten Bundesländern wird der Entschädigungsfonds für traumatisierte Heimkinder wenig genutzt. Im Osten ist der Fonds hingegen ausgeschöpft.

Boys in care were 'rented for sex'

YOUNG boys living in a Salvation Army home in Sydney were sent to stay with adults to have sex, or were abused by unknown men who came into their dormitories at night, as part of a network that "rented" children out to pedophiles, it has been alleged.
One such victim, who was abused at three separate homes across the city, said a senior Salvation Army officer, Captain Lawrence Wilson, "was responsible for all of it, he was the leader of the pack."
At two of these homes, the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse heard yesterday, the boy was abused by women, including one wearing a Salvation Army uniform.

Anglican Diocese damned in child abuse commission findings

THE royal commission is expected find that Anglican Diocese of Grafton failed in its handling of child abuse claims at Lismore's North Coast Children's Home and withheld information from the police.
In a damning report released on Thursday night, Counsel Assisting the Commissioner Simeon Beckett recommends that two Northern NSW priests - Reverend Morgan and Reverend Brown - be referred to the Anglican Church's Professional Standards Committee to determine whether disciplinary proceedings should be initiated against them.
Final submissions arising from the November inquiry into abuse at the home closed on January 24.
Mr Beckett submitted there were 59 findings available to the commission - including that the Grafton Diocese put the interests of the Anglican Church ahead of providing financial support to victims.

Salvation Army: allegations of paedophilia but police did not act

NSW Police had evidence an alleged paedophile network may have been operated by a Salvation Army officer from a southern Sydney boys home in the 1960s but never questioned the alleged ring leader or other officers, the Royal Commission has heard.
As the ongoing investigation into Salvation Amy boys homes in NSW and Queensland focused on the Home for Boys at North Bexley, the commission heard that in the late 1990s a former resident told police he had been sent to three properties 30 years earlier where he was raped and abused.

Salvo dismissed amid more abuse evidence

A man, now a miner, was so distraught by memories of what had happened to him at a Salvation Army boys home in Sydney that he could not read his evidence at a royal commission inquiry.
When he took the stand at a public hearing into child sexual abuse on Thursday, the man identified as FV, faltered as he told about hearing his younger brother was raped.
They had been sent to the Bexley Boys Home in Sydney south in 1974 when Captain Lawrence Wilson was in charge and placed in different dormitories.
In evidence read on his behalf by Simeon Beckett counsel assisting the commission, FV said he was raped by Cpt Wilson and a few weeks later was collected by a man and woman and taken to a house in Punchbowl, Sydney.

'Worst rapist' at Salvos was eventually sacked ... for sleeping with his fiance

  • Victim, 52, breaks down as he tells story of time at Bexley
  • Wilson, who died in 2008, went on to have numerous jobs related to children
  • He also 'sent boys out from the home to have sex with couples and women'
The worst sex fiend in the Salvation Army was dismissed not for raping young boys - but because he had slept with his fiance.
The hypocrisy of the Salvos has been exposed at the royal commission into child sex abuse when, despite leaving a trail of abused young boys in the 50s, 60s and 70s at four Salvation Army homes, Captain Lawrence Wilson was recommended for promotion to major in 1982.
One of Wilson's victims at Bexley Boys' Home in Sydney, now aged 52, broke down in the witness box yesterday, unable to read his statement.
"My life was not too bad until I met Captain Wilson," the man, a miner, had written.
"The sexual attacks on myself are still the hardest thing to deal with. One day you are a boy, then the next you are a shell walking around.

DISTURBING evidence before the royal commission into child sex abuse has revealed a cruel rapist was allowed to move from one boys home to another for decades before he was finally forced out of the Salvation Army.

Now, the broken boys he left behind have had their chance to tell their stories before a royal commission which will call on the Salvation Army to explain it's apparent failure to protect vulnerable children from a known predator.

Irland muss für sexuellen Missbrauch haften

Urteil könnte auch Auswirkungen auf Entschädigungszahlungen in Deutschland haben
 – Der irische Staat trägt eine Mitverantwortung für Fälle von Kindesmissbrauch in einer irischen katholischen Schule in den 70er-Jahren. Der Europäische Gerichtshof für Menschenrechte in Straßburg gab gestern einer heute 50-jährigen Irin Recht, die nahe Kinsale in Cork zur Schule gegangen war. Sie war als Neunjährige mehrfach vom Schuldirektor missbraucht worden. Mindestens 20 anderen Schülern war damals ebenfalls sexuelle Gewalt angetan worden.

EGMR: Dublin ignorierte Missbrauch an kirchlichen Schulen

Der Europäische Menschenrechtsgerichtshof (EGMR) hat den irischen Staat verurteilt, weil er ein Mädchen an einer Grundschule in kirchlicher Trägerschaft nicht vor sexuellem Missbrauch geschützt hat. Die Richter in Straßburg befanden in dem am Dienstag veröffentlichten Urteil, Regierung und Behörden in Dublin hätten in den 1970er-Jahren nicht nur keine wirksame Kontrollmechanismen an Schulen eingeführt, sondern im Gegenteil Missbrauchsvorwürfe an die jeweiligen Schulträger zurückverwiesen. Träger des Grundschulwesens sind in Irland in der Regel Pfarren, Diözesen und Orden.

GRAHAM Rundle was seven when he was first raped at a Salvation Army boys' home in South Australia and placed in a "lock-up", 18 when he first tried to commit suicide, 48 when he turned to the Salvos for justice, and 58 when he comprehensively beat them.
He is now 61 and ready to give evidence at the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sex Abuse after angrily rejecting the Salvation Army's apology this week for horrific abuse at its NSW and Queensland homes.
"They're bastards," he said.

Boys caged, tethered, raped by Salvation Army officers and older boys at children's homes

MARK COLVIN: The Child Abuse Royal Commission has heard evidence about how a vicious bullying culture at Salvation Army boys' homes was passed from adults to children: so younger children were assaulted by older boys as well as those in charge.

Several former residents have told how they were sexually assaulted but were too ashamed or too afraid to speak out because they weren't believed - or worse, they were physically and sexually abused by Salvation Army officers.

The inquiry also heard that one boy was tethered to a brick, thrown into a pool and was then forced under the water by a Salvation Army captain. Another boy was caged in a cell on a veranda for weeks at a time.

And a warning: some of the detail and language contained in this story may be distressing.

Boys' carers at Salvation Army home, 'they were cruel bastards'

Some boys knew it as ''the cage'', others ''the lock-up'' - a small cell with iron bars built into the door. And for youngsters at the Salvation Army's Riverview Training Farm in Queensland it was a place of dread.
Some of those who broke the rules at the institution were placed in the dark space by the Salvation Army officers charged with their care and kept there for days and even weeks, the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse heard on Wednesday.
''One day me and two other guys did something wrong - I forget what it was - and we were put in the holding cell,'' one former resident, known as ES, told the commission. ''It was a room like - it looked like it had a door and iron bars on the front, just like your normal cell.''
The man, now in his 60s, said boys were forced to sleep on the floor of the tiny room without a pillow or even a blanket. ''We went to the toilet in a bucket.''

Oz kids 'sodomised, punched'

Children were sodomised with a garden hose, locked in outdoor cages and savagely beaten by Salvation Army majors in graphic cases of abuse detailed yesterday to an Australian inquiry.


A royal commission into child sexual abuse in Australia began hearing evidence into allegations of abuse at four Salvation Army homes for children between 1966 and 1977, that counsel assisting the inquiry, Simeon Beckett, warned would be "shocking to many".
"The abuse that is to be detailed is likely to be disturbing and at the severe end of sexual abuse," he said in his opening address.

Australian panel told of sexual abuse of boys at Salvation Army homes

(CNN) -- An Australian commission is hearing allegations of the physical and sexual abuse of boys in the care of the Salvation Army over several decades.
The shocking treatment at some of the organization's boys homes included rape, beatings, locking boys in cages and, in one case, forcing a boy to eat his own vomit, the commission was told Tuesday.
The public hearings, taking place in Sydney, are part of a wide-ranging investigation into how Australian institutions responded to cases of child sexual abuse.
The current phase is focusing on the Salvation Army's response to abuse that took place in four of its boys homes in the states of Queensland and New South Wales in the 1960s and '70s.

There "was fear all the time" around Salvation Army officers, a witness has told a royal commission.

Ireland liable for abuse in Catholic-run school: Europe court

Strasbourg: An Irish woman who suffered sexual abuse as a girl while attending a Catholic-run state primary school in the 1970s won a landmark victory at the European Court of Human Rights on Tuesday.

The case of Louise O'Keeffe was the first concerning child abuse in Irish schools that the Strasbourg-based court has ruled on.

O'Keeffe has fought a lengthy legal battle over the responsibility of the state for her treatment at the hands of the principal of Dunderrow National School in Cork in 1973, when she was nine.

The judges said in their ruling it was "an inherent obligation of a government to protect children from ill-treatment, especially in a primary education context".

Salvation Army abuse of children

Raymond Carlile's little brother was so hungry he had started eating grass.
After months of being fed scraps intended for farm animals at a Salvation Army boys' home in Queensland his wasn't the only empty stomach.
''They kept a load of raw potatoes under the building and we used to go under there and steal them when we were hungry,'' Mr Carlile, now in his 70s, told the royal commission into child sexual abuse on Tuesday.
Mr Carlile's story is just a glimpse of the extreme deprivation and abuse suffered by scores of young boys at the hands of the Salvation Army at boys' homes in the 1950s, '60s and '70s, the commission heard in Sydney.
