ELEVEN Victorians abused by a jailed paedophile Christian Brother have lodged joint claims in the Victorian County Court in the first of several looming and large legal actions aimed at forcing the Catholic Church to compensate victims.

The move is the largest legal action of its type in Victoria and, if it succeeds, will put intense pressure on the Christian Brothers to pay victims compensation that could total millions of dollars.


CONFIDENTIAL police reports have detailed the suicides of at least 40 people sexually abused by Catholic clergy in Victoria, and have urged a new inquiry into these and many other deaths suspected to be linked to abuse in the church.

In a damning assessment of the church’s handling of abuse issues, the reports say it appears the church has known about a shockingly high rate of suicides and premature deaths but has "chosen to remain silent."

The revelations and apparent cover-up of the initial knowledge of Williams’ child have raised questions about whether it’s really possible to rehabilitate the Legion, which has been in disarray since admitting in 2009 that its founder had raped and molested seminarians and fathered three children with two women. The order, founded in 1941, became one of the fastest growing and most influential religious congregations because of its ability to attract money and seminarians to the priesthood.

This Group has been set up for the benefit of VICTIMS of Pedophillia and Sexual Abuse by the EVIL ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH ...in Australia. Members can share notes, tell their stories and make contact with other Victims.

Approaches to ALL Archdioceses have resulted in Denials, Threats, in some cases offers of miserly amounts of compensation with No Disclosure clauses. Any cases that have gone to court have been as a result of victims reporting abuse to the Police and the alleged offenders being defended by the Church. The Gerald Ridsdale affair is the most infamous with George "Go To Hell" Pell personally accompaning him to court, but not giving evidence in court.

We must fight this EVIL CESSPOOL of sexual abuse and bring it to it's knees.
The Vatican has miserably failed the victims of child sex abuse within the Catholic Church, the Deputy First Minister has claimed.

THIS is the letter that sensationally reveals that the Catholic Church KNEW a paedophile priest had “an unwholesome relationship” – 25 years BEFORE he was jailed for sexually abusing six boys.

James Robinson, who worked in parishes across the Midlands, fled to America in 1985 – days after police were first alerted by a victim that he had been abused by the ex-priest when he was a child.

It has become a painfully self-evident truth – surely, even to the silent onlookers at the Vatican – that the longer Cardinal Seán Brady stays in place as Primate of All Ireland, the greater the damage inflicted on the reputation of the Catholic Church in Ireland and beyond. This is not simply because his presence has become a reminder of the cover-up of paedophile abuse by priests, but also because it illustrates a continuing problem: that, after all this time, Cardinal Brady just doesn’t get it.

In the 21st century it takes an extremely well-made programme or one containing important new information to produce the degree of shock these crimes merit. The Shame of the Catholic Church ticked both boxes. In fact, what it told us about Cardinal Seán Brady, Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland, leaves us in little doubt that his position is hopelessly compromised.

Alison Millar’s film made the bleak hills and moors of Donegal seem frighteningly empty. That was appropriate, since geographical isolation was useful to priests like Greene, shunted around from one remote spot to another by the hierarchy that protected him. One chapel had a small apartment built behind the altar where a visiting priest could stay if he was cut off by the weather. Fr Greene found it handy for assaulting minors, just a few feet away from the Blessed Sacrament.
