It is part of the human conditon. People have been using sex innapropriately since it became part of us. Everyone everywhere has to face this problem. In Asia it is still being used to subjugate and control populations.
I sometimes feel that is starting to happen here in the US with all the overt emotionless sexuality constantly being projected upon us. This is affecting how our children develop and diminishingh their for lack of a better term Moral fiber. Sex should only be private and done with the proper mental outlook and emotional content for good mental and emotional health. Anything else erodes that and eventually adds up and destroys a culture. Look at how quickly public moprals have changed over the last 40 years.

As Mark Twain once quipped, history may not repeat itself, but it does rhyme.

Hi, my fraternal brothers.

Yep, the Catholic church abuse beat goes on. Yes, it is terrable. "Men" of the cloth, sexually abusing boys in their charge. Gets lots of headlines.

But WHERE, my brothers are the HEADLINES about "MOTHERS" sexually abusing their sons?

Both are devastating in their own right.

But as long as i was in their charge (Catholic orphanage/Home), I was SAVED from my predators.

My "MOTHER" being the very first one who sexually abused her (Me) son. SHE paved the way for others to follow.

WHERE are the HEADLINES on that? Or parents abusing their sons?

Lets keep things in perspective. "moms", "parents" "family" versus the religious of the Catholic church. Where in the hell are the HEADLINES?

Heal well my fraternal brothers, heal well.

You are so right. The media doesn't publish stories about incest. Those stories are kept private by the courts. I will personally search for stories in the daily worldwide media that speak of a broader cross section of those who abuse children.

To validate your experience of having been saved by good people within an organization I can only hope that others would speak up about the compassion they had in their experience. To validate my own experience, I will continue to demand that leaders of any organization, religious or not, be held to the same standards under the law as any others. When that happens I'll gladly stop reporting the about wolves in God's clothing.

How about we work together to find more stories about those who live according to laws of their God? You and they deserve to have your truths told too.

I try to collect and publish some stories that the media publish (as well as research etc) on this subject. If you click the link in my signature you can find articles, studies, and a video broadcast done by the BBC in 1997 about this.
