Voiceless Victim

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

Defending the Indefensible is a Lot Like Football

Battling for truth, justice and child protection against the evil empire of His Greediness can get you down sometimes.

Time for a little light relief.

I came across this intelligent and articulate blogger just recently.

This post from the Voice from the Desert blog is screamingly funny. And tragically true.

It also introduced me to a new nickname for the Paedophile-in-Chief.

Pope Pinocchio.

By my calculations his nose should reach right around the globe by now and be able to tap himself on the shoulder from behind.

Shame he doesn’t have PTSD like most of us victims, he might have a little more compassion (sorry, that should be any compassion at all)  if he jumps out of his skin every time anyone, including his own nose, approaches from behind.

Enjoy.

POSITION NAME COMMENT
OFFENSE
WIDE RECEIVER Federico Lombardi Vatican press spokesman; Jesuit; frequently left holding the bag with ludicrous arguments crafted by Pope Pinocchio’s incompetent staff as the Vatican kicks the can down the clergy-sex-abuse road; fumbles so often that he’s known affectionately in Vatican press corps as Fumbling Freddie; caught 12 touchdown passes in 2009; fumbled 14 times in 2010 after catching passes
LEFT TACKLE Timothy Dolan Archbishop of New York; known for unmatched beer-drinking and back-slapping skills; world-class Vatican suck up; close friend of Peter Isely, quarterback for the Survivor/Advocate All Stars; known for fierce blocking and dirty play; selected to clerical all star teams every year since ordination
LEFT GUARD Robert Vasa Coadjutor Bishop of Santa Rosa, CA; well known for his strict adherence to Church doctrine; explained in January 2010 that use of excommunication and denial of communion were acts of charity; fierce blocker, showing little mercy and less charity to opponents; named as one of the Ten Most Conservative Bishops in America by the National Catholic Register in December 2010
CENTER Roger Mahony Cardinal Archbishop of Los Angeles; top-notch prevaricator; his nose is getting so large that it’s beginning to embarrass even his most ardent supporters; known for liberally spending the Faithful’s donations ($600+ million to clergy abuse survivors and a juicy annuity for world-class child rapist Fr. Oliver O’Grady); skills as a center are suspect because of his record as a fumbler

We have succeeded in terms of the church and her response. We have succeeded in guaranteeing that if a priest is accused, and there is a credible allegation, he is simply removed from the ministry;” consummate hardball player; one of the fiercest tacklers in the clergy
CORNERBACKB Richard Lennon Archbishop of Cleveland; one of the meanest, toughest players in the game today; loves to talk tough and close down parishes; an elbow to the throat is one of his favorite tackling techniques; named by Real Catholic magazine as their preferred candidate to succeed Benedict XVI as pope

SPECIAL TEAMS COACH William Baum Former archbishop of Washington, DC; now the second longest serving cardinal in American history, behind only Cardinal James Gibbons of Baltimore; accomplished Vatican insider; recipient of the North American College’s Founder’s Award, citing his “long and tireless priestly service”; eschews the spotlight

I’m considering compiling a similar list for an Australian and/or international all-star child rapist enabler line up. But not a football team. I don’t have the knowledge of football or sports.

Maybe a Top 10, or rather, Top 50. Top 100. Top 1,00. Okay, I’ll have to be very selective.

Any votes for which inhuman monster should be included are welcome. I’ve only been doing this for one year and couldn’t possibly have come across all of them yet. Either post a comment or email me privately at voicelessvictim@gmail.com

Have a look at Voice from the Desert. I’m personally looking forward to getting hot and sandy amongst the Desert posts soon.

      Thank you for the feedback. I write using research, other survivors around the world who keep me up to date with any developments I may miss, lots of passion, and unfortunately, personal experience of the subject matter.

      The template is developed and provided free of charge by WordPress, but I am not sure what the problem you refer to is as it does not seem to have a problem on my computer. Perhaps you could explain.

      Please note the post you are responding to quotes an article from the blog, Voice from the Desert, and the material in the highlighted box was not written by me but by the author of that blog, so I cannot claim credit for it. There is a link to the original source at the bottom of the post.
