It is intriguing that when the topic here is the sexual abuse of children that some would like to silence or restrict that!!!
Why is that?

I felt you may be able to provide references or perhaps you could answer
my question.

My question is in several parts:

Why is it that I as an identified victim of clergy abuse am unable to
obtain compensation, an apology and answers to my questions from the
Archdiocese of Melbourne in a dignified manner without the need of the
process to cause me to repeatedly re-experience the original abuse?

Is the need for my experience to be documented and then provided to a
sector of the same organisation which through its actions played a role
in my original abuse a continuation of that original abuse? If not then
what is it?

Why is it that I must give up a range of my rights, rights which have
been enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Rights
which are preached from the pulpits of all Christian Churches in order
to receive the offered compensation and apology?

Why must I be blackmailed in this way by this part of the Church?

Why can I not be treated as a human being by the Church and why is it
that I cannot be afforded the same justice and rights the Church cries
out for for those oppressed by uncaring regimes or systems?

Does the fact that I am unable to obtain that which the Church stands
for from the Church make it an oppressor of human rights?

your response would be appreciated.
