Voiceless Victim

A survivor of clergy child sexual abuse speaks out for those who can't speak for themselves

What has the Pope done for victims?

In his letter to Irish sexual abuse victims, His Greedinesss the Pope explained, “I know that nothing can undo the wrong you have endured.”

Nothing can undo the wrong we have endured.

True.

And that is exactly what Benedict has offered us.

NOTHING.

No attempt to help us recover.

No understanding of how his current actions are adding to the mountain of harm we are trying to climb out from under.

No reassurance that our suffering may have helped prevent other children from exposure to this danger – because nothing has changed.

No full and clear admission that our abuse even occurred, to counter the devastating years of lies and denials by the Church.

No assurance that our abusers will be held accountable for their crimes. Or prevented from re-offending.

No end to the cover-up, lies, excuses, insults and diversionary tactics.

And now he’s offering to meet victims.  Like that’s going to achieve anything.

No way a meeting with a power hungry rich old man in a dress is anything except a PR stunt.

And an insult to victims.

So thanks for nothing, Benny the Rat.

But no thanks.

    I just want you to know that I am blogging everyday to get the world to realizes what this instrument of the devil, THE ROMAN CATHOLIC cHURCH, (INSTITUTION) AND IT’S COHOTS has done and is still doing to the precious people of the world.

    I WILL CONTINUE TO SPEAK OUT. THEY HAVE COMMITTED THE “UNPARDONABLE SIN,” THE SIN AGAINST THE HOLY SPIRIT AND THE POPE SHOULD BE TERRIFYED AND ALL HIS COHORTS AND PEOPLE WHO STILL DRIVE THEIR GET-A-WAY-CAR!
