Heartless Hart at it Again

Voiceless Victim

Melbourne Archbishop Denis Hart just cannot stop insulting victims every time he opens his mouth.

He wrote another letter this week, in conjunction with his fellow Victorian bishops and leaders of religious orders, which reached its intended audience, the news media, yesterday.

He even started off well, coming as close to honesty about this issue as I’ve seen from any Australian catholic official.

Let us be very clear. The sexual abuse of a child was, is and always will be a crime, and is contrary to all we believe in.

Very true. And remarkably clear, direct and unequivocal for something emanating from a catholic bishop.

So Victoria’s leading church yes men have been forced by fear of the revelations soon to come from Victoria’s parliamentary inquiry into doing the unthinkable. Defining their own actions as criminal and the epitome of hypocrisy.

About victimsofrapebythercc

The Catechism offers a clear moral teaching: "Rape is the forcible violation of the sexual intimacy of another person. It does injury to justice and charity. Rape deeply wounds the respect, freedom, and physical and moral integrity to which every person has a right. It causes grave damage that can mark the victim for life. It is always an intrinsically evil act. Graver still is the rape of children committed by parents (incest) or those responsible for the education of the children entrusted to them." (no. 2356) Note that rape is "an intrinsically evil act," meaning that it is evil at its very root, nothing justifies it, and it is objectively a mortal sin. An evil act was done against me, a crime, by a priest at St Thomas More Parish in Durham, NH. An evil and a crime I will no longer keep silent about. Those who perpetrate crimes against children, especially those of the Roman Catholic Church, should all be punished for their crimes against children. Anything less would be criminal.
