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.
