My brothers,

I am ashamed about this lay (leader) i am ashamed of my religion.

I am ashamed that they are still in denial that "men of God" do such terrible things in his name.

I feel guilty that i was already a sexually abused boy before i was in that Catholic orphanage/Home.
My guilt comes from another of our brothers here, as he told me Peter, your haven (safe place) was his HELL as he was sexually abused by a religious brother there.

Didn't God know that i was already stained? Why did they have to take another's body & soul? In the name of God no doubt.

But, i have to admit that they took good care of me there. They did love me, they did care about me. There i was safe at the expense of another clean & pure Catholic boy.

Heal well, my brothers, heal well.

Pete..Irishmoose.

It truly makes me sad to see the Church act in this manner. I thought they were finally going to do the right thing and accept responsibility and change things. Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to be the case.

In spite of all the problems, I have tried to remain faithful. The church has been a big part of my life and I have some very fond memories of goodthings that happened in the church and our parish. However, this might be the stone that broke the camel's back. I will be very interested in how Catholics respond to this situation. Maybe it is time for Catholics to rise up against the Church leaders, just like the citizen's of Eygpt, Libya,Syria, etc.

I love that focus you have on the target. Trust me, if I lived near you I would without a doubt stand with you on Easter Sunday.

Would you PLEASE tell them, PLEASE tell them, that what they say and do, GOD is watching and GOD is disgusted. This man of the cloth, is a fake and unworthy of his position. FACTS of the matter concerning clergy abuse are now well documented, tell these fuckers that Don Sutton in Escondido, California says to kiss his ass. The leadership, all the way up to the POPE have been shown to hide shit relative these matters. Spit on some there would ya!!!!!!!

Robbie,

It's disgusting that we are now being vilified by the church. I'm engraged over this article. HOW DARE THEY put the blame on us! I DID NOT go to that priest and ask for sex! HE MOLESTED ME! And now I'M the one to blame?!

You're right Freddie. God is disgusted. Amen to that brother!

Rusty

My suggestion is to work through the organization SNAP:

http://www.snapnetwork.org/

(Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests)

They are good people. They have some very smart lawyers and authors working with them. They know how to work with these people. Don't think that you have nothing to loose.

They have a section on news in Massachusetts.

http://www.snapnetwork.org/news/massachus_index.htm

Read up on their website before you go any further.

Don't underestimate the meanness and treachery of the people you are choosing to challenge.

SNAP is a fellow "Survivors" organization working mainly with the RC Church. They have a division of their website devoted to baptist abuse.

http://www.snapnetwork.org/news/baptistindex.htm

Others who are frequenting this sight might want to be aware of SNAP.

Allen
