Any abuse of children is manifest evil.
When discovered, If not dealt with at once in support of the victim, its effect is absolute to the child and terminal to an institution of love.
Where evil resides love does not; this is no longer a house of God. Abuse pervades everything like choking smog and its silence blocks ears, so Gods words are no longer heard.
When a child is violated and dies inside, four generations are decimated. The child themselves, their parents, and grandparents, and that of their offspring.
Hiding abuse gives it power. It destroys the web of trust that binds a family together. And that binds that family to a community. It decimates security and fractures humanity. There is no heaven for those with “blind faith” but selective viewing. Those that protect an image of love and safety within the church, which results in the ongoing torture of children under church care.
Being brutalized by one of God’s “chosen” is the most heinous of crimes as it not only destroys the body and mind, but breaks the spirit; it is the rape of a child’s soul. It leaves them hollow and if they are not believed by others, self loathing and guilt envelope their lives.
As it is the consequences of these acts that dictate a sad dysfunctional life; it is therefore the perpetrators who must be made to carry all of the blame.
For now the children are lost, even to themselves. While the perpetrators live in supported comfort sanctioned by the church and protected from due process.
It’s said you cannot fake being a person of ethics. You are or you are not. It’s obvious by your actions and the associated outcomes.
It, then, also stands to reason that one cannot ‘fake’ an institution into being a house of God when it is not; no matter how much you pretend: it is or it is not.
There is no virtue in condoning abuse of children in any house.
There is something we can do. We can speak out when we see abuse and withhold all contributions to these churches until they stop withholding compensation from their victims.
Mr Ellis (severally abused) only asked for $100,000 to assist with medical bills and counseling, yet the Catholic Church spent 15 million of parishioner’s money stopping that from happening.
The church is not protecting Gods name or the souls of its parishioners; in this instance they are protecting their own names, their position of power, the corporation they work for and their income. Where is God in all of this?
In the words of Epicurus,
“Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing? Then Why call him God?”
