Hi Jeff,

I think you are mostly right about children not reporting abuse in the 1050's though the 1990's, but within organizations like the Catholic Church and the Boys Scouts, reports were hidden away and efforts were never made to protect children from abuse. The Boy Scouts for example are now known to have kept secret "perversions files" for decades and didn't do a thing to stop the pedophiles or protect boys in any way. Truly a shameful thing to allow so many lives to be destroyed. I was raised as a Roman Catholic (I am a non-denominational Christian now), but thankfully was never abused by clergy. However, I was abused in very same Catholic church I attended by my Scoutmaster.

Sadly, you are right about abusers adapting to their environment and times. I know abuse is still rampant, but at least kids are more prone to know it's OK to tell someone now. It's a scary world to raise children in.

Thanks again for being so transparent with your story. It helps me.

Jeff,

I want to answer you in more detail in just a bit, but here is a YouTube video from ABC News about the Boy Scout Perversion Files:
YouTube - U.S. Boy Scouts Sex Abuse Lawsuit 18.5 Million, Perversion Files

Jeff,

I read Pufferfish's story last night and it nearly made me cry. I also ready yours yesterday and felt like crying too. I am so sorry for both of you and every abused guy here on MS. What happened to me was horrible, but the two of you went through an unbelievable series of abuse. I think the two of you are remarkable in how you encourage the rest of us here. You are appreciated more than you know. BTW, I especially noticed the parts about Boy Scout abuse. Naturally that hits home with me. frown

Thanks again. You are an inspiration to me!

Undefeated,

I've read a bunch of people's stories on here and it's really sad kids have to go through CSA shit. Have to read Pufferfish's story. It's sometimes hard to find stories when people have tons of posts. I wonder how some of us have lived so long. frown

OK. Its time for my to post this.

My mentor in CSA healing, of ALL things, was a Grad Football Coach at PSU. He wrote an earth-shattering article about what he knows about the inner-workings of the Paterno-world. Here it is via a link.

It will blow your mind!!!

Robbie,

When I heard Paterno got cancer, I said, "Good." And, so did a bunch of other people. I was shocked how many Yahoo comments said that.
