Dial the number…

I have a healthy skepticism when it comes to anyone actually prosecuting the institutions that have made it a business practice to support and protect pedophiles that groom, sexually abuse and rape children within that institution.  There is a risk calculation, no doubt, that guides these institutions to deny claims of abuse, attempt to discredit… Continue reading Dial the number…

Action Alert from the Foundation To Abolish Child Sex Abuse (FACSA)

  This is from an email that FACSA sent out Yesterday.  It was important enough to come out of my self imposed archive. 1-888-538-8541 Last April, the PA Attorney General’s Office established a toll-free phone number for survivors of child sex abuse (who were PA residents, or were abused by someone in PA) to call… Continue reading Action Alert from the Foundation To Abolish Child Sex Abuse (FACSA)

Archiving for Now

I have been struggling with this decision for a while.  I have decided to archive this blog, at least for now.  I think I have accomplished as much as I can using this forum.  I have been working on two other projects, one of which was completed over the weekend.  The second will take a… Continue reading Archiving for Now

Lifestyles of the Rich and Pious

There is a great article on the opulent lifestyles of the "princes of the church".  The Lavish Homes of American Archbishops is running on the CNN website. Funny, they keep saying that they are bankrupt and that there are no resources for the victims of sexual crimes committed by their clergy!  They complain that people… Continue reading Lifestyles of the Rich and Pious

What is it going to take?

I wrote a blog post in February, 2013 titled "Is there a Survivors' Community" in which I was looking for answers from survivors about our community, our way forward and who speaks for us.  In May,2013 I expressed my frustration in another post, "Crickets, Silence on the net..." that I did not hear from anyone in… Continue reading What is it going to take?

Reunion

The last time I had gone to a reunion, the great terrible secret was still under wraps.   I had gone with 2 purposes, one of them was to find out if Gibson was still alive and destroying lives.  The second was to try to exorcise the memories of what had happened.   I was… Continue reading Reunion

Reply to CatholicCulture.org’s Misunderstanding of Torture

This morning I read an article on-line from CatholicCulture.org on the United Nations probe into torture and the Vatican.  I find it amusing that the UN, the world’s most ineffective organization, is creating theater of the absurd with the Holy See, the world’s most recalcitrant organization. The piece I was reading, written by Phil Lawler,… Continue reading Reply to CatholicCulture.org’s Misunderstanding of Torture
