Anglican Dean ‘Gave Court Reference for Priest Accused of Child Sex Abuse’

A gay, a child sex abuser - why wouldn't he be
Dean of Newcastle’s Anglican cathedral? Good grief!
Is there absolutely no discernment in the church today?

A former dean of Newcastle’s Anglican cathedral wrote a character reference for an alleged pedophile priest at the centre of a new police investigation, a royal commission has heard.

The reference was one of three provided by Graeme Lawrence for the criminal trials of alleged sex offenders within the NSW diocese, according to evidence before the Royal Commission into Instit­utional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. Mr Lawrence was himself later defrocked after having group sex with a teenager.

The former cathedral dean prepared the reference in about 2001, although the charges were ultimately “no-billed”, meaning prosecutors decided not to pursue the case.

The Newcastle diocese subsequently released a media statement falsely claiming that the priest, who cannot be named, had been acquitted, the commission has heard.

The priest moved to the Victorian diocese of Ballarat.

Sure, seems like all pedophile priests ended up in Ballarat.

Newcastle’s bishop at the time, Roger Herft, now the Archbishop of Perth, has told the commission he has “no recollection” of contacting the church in Ballarat to warn them the priest was an ­alleged child-sex offender.

“I accept, however, it was entirely within my power” to contact the bishop of Ballarat “about the allegations ... either before or after (the priest’s) trial”, Archbishop Herft said in a statement to the commission. Both Mr Lawrence and Archbishop Herft are expected to face cross-examination ­before the commission, which ­resumes its public inquiry into the Newcastle diocese today.

The Australian revealed in 2014 that police had launched a strike force, codenamed Arinya-2, to investigate alleged abuse of multiple victims within the region’s Anglican Church during the 1970s.

The commission has since heard the priest in question allegedly abused two altar boys over several years between 1971 and 1975. The abuse took place at least fortnightly and escalated over time,” one of his victims has told the commission. The priest ­“abused me at our local church, the rectory where he lived, in his vehicle during travel, and at other churches in the parish”.

NSW police are now likely to lay fresh charges against the priest, the commission has heard, with lawyers for the state saying they expect he will face a second criminal trial.

As dean of the cathedral, Mr Lawrence worked closely with the priest and also provided character references for two other alleged abusers, Ian Barrack and Allan Kitchingman, the commission heard. Both were subsequently convicted of sexual offences.

Mr Lawrence was also a member of the “Gang of Three” senior church officials who protected another alleged pedophile priest, the commission has heard.

Both Mr Lawrence and former Newcastle archdeacon Bruce Hoare were defrocked, or ­removed from the priesthood, in 2012 after an internal investi­g­ation found they had taken part in a 1984 group sex session with a 19-year-old.

The teenage participant, who also cannot be named, has told the commission the incident was “the outcome of years of sexual grooming and abuse … by Lawrence”.

Evidence before the commission alleges Archbishop Herft was told at least three times that Mr Lawrence was sexually abusive, including of children, although he has told the commission he cannot recall this taking place.

A file note of a conversation last year between the current Newcastle bishop Greg Thompson and one of its former legal ­advisers, Keith Allan, has also been tendered to the commission.

“Allen advised that Graeme Lawrence would be a focus of the police and the royal commission and that Lawrence would ‘bring others down’,” this states.

Questioned about this during the commission, Mr Allen said: “I probably think words to that or similar to that may — would have been said.”

One of the Worst Murderers and Rapists in American History

By Melissa Pandika

Carl Panzram — a tattooed, 6-foot-tall giant of a man with cold gray eyes — stowed away on a ship bound for Angola around 1920 to work as a merchant seaman. After arriving in Lobito Bay, he hired a half-dozen local guides for a crocodile-hunting expedition. But Panzram had other prey on his mind. As their canoe wended its way down the river, he shot each crew member dead before feeding their corpses to the hungry crocodiles lurking below.

That was just one of many crimes, including 21 murders and more than 1,000 rapes of young boys and men, Panzram admitted to committing. Unlike charming and cunning serial killers Ted Bundy or Rodney Alcala, Panzram remained brutally honest. “For all of these things, I am not the least bit sorry,” he seethed in his autobiography, penned from his prison cell. “I hate the whole damned human race including myself.”

But could he really be that bad? Yes, at least according to experts who have studied him and found that the roots of his evil could be traced back to his childhood. Born in 1891 to a poor farming family in Minnesota, Panzram’s father abandoned his family when he was about 8 years old. Soon after, Panzram landed in a reform school called Red Wing for a string of burglaries. Red Wing schooled Panzram in sadism, punishing him with beatings and rapes, which led him to a realization: “‘The world is this shithole, and I’m going to go through the world and wreak havoc in it,’” said Harold Schechter, a true-crime writer specializing in serial killers.

After graduating, he spent years sleeping on freight trains. During one ride in a boxcar, he was gang raped by transients — leaving him “a sadder, sicker but wiser boy,” Panzram wrote. In 1915, he traveled through Idaho, California and other states along the Columbia River, burning and burglarizing buildings and raping countless young men and boys. Around the same time, Panzram was sentenced to seven years at the Oregon State Penitentiary for burglary. To punish his unruliness, the wardens hung him from the rafters for hours, turned a hose on him, and kept him in solitary confinement for weeks, leaving him to feed on cockroaches.

According to Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest, conscience is attached to the highest that you know. Panzram's dad, having deserted his family in the most dire conditions, could not have taught Carl much in the way of moral character. Neither could anyone in the reform school, the freight trains, or the prisons he frequented. Consequently, Panzram was completely devoid of conscience.

Add to the lack of conscience a seething anger from all the abuse he suffered and you have the makings of a real psychopath. But, Panzram, it appears was more than that. A 2012 documentary 'Carl Panzram: The Spirit of Hatred and Vengeance' may be more accurately named than even the author knows. Trauma opens one up to spiritual invasion; repeated, brutal trauma almost guarantees a welcoming home for the demonic. 

It was that evil in him that allowed him to murder so many people without the least regret. It was also that evil that caused him to defile roughly 1000 boys, destroying their innocence. Evil hates innocence and cannot touch it without some dreadful event making it possible. Defiling innocence is a demonic act of defiance against God.

Not long after escaping in 1918, Panzram committed his first murders. In New York, he hired sailors to work on a yacht bought with his robbery bounty, lulled them to sleep with alcohol and shot­­­­­ them dead — all 10 of them. Soon after, he set sail for Angola, raping and killing a young boy before the crocodile-hunting expedition. About a year later, he hid aboard a Lisbon-bound ship, only to find that the police there were on the lookout for him, aware of his crimes in Africa. So, soon after, he stowed away on a ship to the U.S.

In 1928, Panzram was arrested for a series of burglaries and jailed in Washington, D.C. After a warden found out that he had tried to escape, the guards handcuffed and suspended him from a beam, beating him unconscious. Feeling sorry for Panzram, 26-year-old prison guard Henry Lesser handed him a dollar to buy food and cigarettes. “No one had ever been kind to him in his life,” said John Borowski, who directed the 2012 documentary Carl Panzram: The Spirit of Hatred and Vengeance. Over time, the two became friends. Each day, Lesser slipped him a pencil and a few sheets of paper, convincing him to write his life story.

Panzram was sentenced to 25 years at United States Penitentiary, Leavenworth in Kansas. There, he crushed laundry foreman Robert Warnke’s skull with an iron bar, landing a spot on death row and refusing human rights groups’ efforts to spare him from the gallows. After years of abuse, “it was his form of suicide,” Borowski said. Panzram got the death he craved in September 1930. “Hurry it up, you Hoosier bastard!” he seethed at the executioner — “rage personified,” as he referred to himself, until the end. “I could kill 10 men while you’re fooling around!”

Lesser kept Panzram’s writings, but publishers weren’t comfortable with the graphic manuscript until 1970, when it was published as Killer: A Journal of Murder. “The guy was really quite an amazing writer,” said Joe Coleman, who painted the cover art for the book, and who was “struck by the intelligence and the things [Panzram] could have been capable of.”

'Killer: A Journal of Murder' - nothing much has changed in 46 years. The rape of 1000 boys is not even mentioned in the title, while he murdered only 21 men. 1000 boys rapes probably means 1000 lives destroyed, and who knows how many in the next generation, and the next. Sexually abused boys often become sexual abusers of children themselves. That one man may have been responsible for creating tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of pedophiles.

Beyond helping criminologists better understand the minds of killers like Panzram, Borowski said the autobiography serves as a lesson — one that still holds relevance amid recent reports of inmate abuse at Rikers Island and other prisons. “He tries to teach our future generations not to create more monsters like him,” he said, adding that Panzram, “above anybody else, should be listened to.”

And what is he teaching us? Is it that bad behaviour cannot be corrected by traumatic punishment? When I was 3, my grandmother corrected my bed-wetting by holding my face down in the puddle of urine until I either fainted or just gave up trying to breathe. It definitely cured my bed-wetting, but I have had precious few good night's sleep without medication in the 65 years since. And, I lived with a spirit of fear for the next 55 years. Trauma is not a teacher; it's a destroyer.


NGO Raising Awareness of Child Sex Abuse in Malaysia

Raising Public Awareness On Child Sex Abuse
Is Key To Prevention - NGO

The NGO said the public must be educated on the types of child sexual abuse as the knowledge would enable them to detect any signs of a child being abused and report it to the relevant authority.
The NGO said the public must be educated on the types of child sexual abuse as the knowledge would enable them to detect any signs of a child being abused and report it to the relevant authority.

KUALA LUMPUR: Raising public awareness on child abuse is important to address the problem, said the secretary on a non-government organisation, known as Project Layang-Layang, Petra Gimbad.

She said the public must be educated on the types of child sexual abuse as the knowledge would enable them to detect any signs of a child being abused and report it to the relevant authority.

"Programmes organised by Project Layang-layang are intended to provide such knowledge to participants, so that adults and children know what sexual crime is.

"Most often, parents felt helpless when their children are sexually abused or assaulted. Project Layang-Layang is set up to provide support to such parents and children," she told Bernama during a forum on 'Child sexual Abuse – What Are You Doing To Stop It' here recently.

One of the speakers at the forum, Dr Zahilah Filzah Zulkifli, who heads the Suspected Child Abuse and Neglect (SCAN) team at a government hospital, said for every one reported case of child sexual abuse in the country, nine often went unreported.

She said the sign of a child been violated was hard to prove as any sign of penetration in children resulting in wounds would only take 20 to 40 hours to heal.

"The healing process in children is much faster. Therefore, when a child comes for a check-up to prove if she or he has been sexually violated, it is already too late." she added.

As such, she said, it was imperative for parents to have the knowledge about child sexual abuse as prevention.

5 Pathetic Women in 5 Cases of Child and/or Baby Rape


A New Jersey woman who filmed sex acts with a child has been sentenced in prison, and the details surrounding her actions are making media headlines. WFLX News reports that 30-year-old Pamela Dziminski was convicted after she admitted to what she had done.

The incidents reportedly took place earlier this year. Authorities in Ewing became aware of the abuse when videos and photos of it were posted on the internet. What resulted in which, (????) was an investigation that led to the arrest of the 30-year-old New Jersey woman. The media that had been uploaded to the internet, appeared to feature the New Jersey woman sexually abusing a four-year-old boy.

Pamela Dziminski admitted that she took the videos and photos with the child, and sold them to three different people on the internet. The Trentonian reports That Dziminski was charged with multiple counts of aggravated sexual assault at the time of her arrest. She was also charged with endangering the welfare of a child.

Authorities discovered that the young child was in the care of the woman, and was a relative. However, the identity of the lad, or his exact relationship to the convicted New Jersey woman, haven’t been clarified.

Women rape babies

This isn’t the first time a woman has been charged or convicted with exploiting a child, sexually, for various reasons. Earlier this year, a daycare worker named Heather Koon (right) pleaded guilty in association with vile sexual behavior against children in her care. Koon admits to raping more than one child under the instruction of her sex offender fiance. The woman reportedly raped as many as four children — some of which just a year old.

Also this year, an Indiana woman named Jessica McCain was reportedly arrested for sexual abuse of a child. The 23-year-old woman is accused of using a friend’s cellphone to record herself sexually abusing a one-year-old boy.

Also this year, a 42-year-old Washington woman was arrested in association with crimes against children. The woman allegedly lured kids into her home with ice cream and popcorn, before forcing them to perform sexual acts on her. The alleged victims in this case range in age from 12 to 15-years-old, and authorities report that one of the kids even recorded an incident with the 42-year-old woman.

In June, a Cincinnati woman pleaded guilty in association with trafficking her own daughter. Police say that 32-year-old April Corcoran (Right) traded her 11-year-old daughter with her drug dealer in exchange for drugs, allowing the man to have sex with the young girl. Not only did she traffic her own daughter, she allegedly gave the girl heroin as a “reward” for allowing the woman’s drug dealer to have sex with her.

As for the conviction of Pamela Dzminski, the New Jersey woman has been sentenced to approximately 25 years of imprisonment. Meanwhile, the woman’s family has appeared to forgive her for the vile act of child sexual abuse she committed. Her parents have provided statements, in hopes of getting the woman a shorter prison sentence, declaring that the boy “doesn’t remember anything regarding the assault.” The New Jersey woman’s attorney noted that she has no prior criminal history, but agrees with the prison sentence she was given.

Telford - Eclypsing Rotherham as UK's Child Sex Abuse Capital

This is incredibly infuriating! Police know this is going on and do little or nothing to stop it. Girls lives are being destroyed and the people paid to protect them are sitting on their hands. 

Unfortunately, there needs to be a ministry or ombudsman to monitor police and hold their feet to the fire. There seems to be no appetite for cleaning up the streets of these scum.

'ROTHERHAM-STYLE SCANDAL' Telford dubbed ‘child sex abuse capital’ after police accused of sitting on massive 150-page pile of allegations

Local volunteers have been handing evidence of grooming outside underage clubs to police for years

A “Rotherham-style” abuse scandal has erupted in Telford, Shrops, after it emerged local police are sitting on a massive pile of child sex accusations.

As many as 150 pages-worth of abuse claims have built up in the town dubbed the “child sex capital of Britain.”

Cops have been accused of either ignoring or not taking seriously the extent of the problem in the West Midlands town.

That’s despite the jailing of seven men in the town involved in organised child abuse in 2012.

One victim who was passed around a string of perverts for sex told The Mirror: “The police have betrayed the children of this town for a second time.

The Shropshire town of Telford has the highest rate of reported child sex crimes in the country

“I dread to think how many victims there have been over the years – it wouldn’t surprise me if the offending was on the same scale as Rotherham.”

Her comments come after the work of local “street pastors” reporting cases of underage girls being approached by older men in the town emerged.

Witnesses have seen men circling underage discos, takeaway shops and other areas popular with youngsters.

Some have even reported seeing men grooming drunk young girls or trying to get into underage clubs.

The work of these church volunteers has been going on since 2013, during which piles of evidence was passed to the authorities.

However, officers have admitted flaws in their reporting system, meaning their intelligence gathering has been hampered.

For three years there are flaws in their reporting system. How many more years do you need to fix it? How many young girls are you throwing under the bus because you just don't care?

India Launches E-box for Online Registration of Child Sexual Abuse Complaints

This is a great idea and I applaud Maneka Ghandi for it. It will certainly rescue some children, but it will also open up possibilities of abuse. But now, Ghandi need to turn her attention to rural children where incestuous child sex abuse is more likely.

By Express News Service 

NEW DELHI: Aimed at helping victims of child sexual abuse, the government on Friday launched an E-box for online registering of such complaints.

The Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO), E-Box, is an online complaint management system for easy and direct reporting of sexual offences against children and timely action against the offenders under the POCSO Act, 2012.

The E-Box will help to maintain the confidentiality of the complaint.

“The idea of an e-Box came out of a police initiative in which physical complaint boxes were placed in schools,” Women and Child Development Minister Maneka Gandhi said adding the E-Box will make it possible to implement it on a large scale throughout the country.

A large number of incidents of abuse are against close relatives and so they get pushed under the carpet, the minister said.

The E-Box is incorporated prominently in the home page of National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) where a user has to simply push a button named POSCO E-Box. This will navigate to a page with a window containing an animation movie. The animation movie reassures the child that whatever has happened is not his or her fault and he or she need not feel guilty.

After the user presses the arrow on this page, it navigates  to another page wherethey have to select at least one picture option-- describing the category of harassment--  and fill the form with details such as mobile number, e-mail and description of the harassment followed by  the ‘submit’ button. Following this, the complaint is then registered and a unique auto-generated complaint number is flashed.

Speaking at the launch event Minister of State Krishna Raj said, “Those children who had no means of complaining will now have a medium to share their feelings through this e-box. Only then will we able to help them….But 70 per cent of children live in rural areas and we must worry about them as well. Don’t know whether this e-box will reach them or not. Our next step should be for those children in rural areas who are victims of sexual abuse but may not have access to modern gadgets.”

According to government data, sexual offences against children are rampant but only a small percentage gets reported. About 53 percent of children surveyed, reported having faced one or the other form of sexual abuse in their lifetime. 

In most cases, the offender is a family member or near relative or an acquaintance. The child victim in such cases generally does not report these offences.

Sexual abuse scars the psyche of the affected child for  entire life. A child who is sexually abused has to face very serious consequences such as cognitive impairment, violent and risk behaviour including depression and anxiety.

The  government enacted POCSO Act, 2012 to protect such children from offences of sexual assault, sexual harassment and pornography. Any human being up to the age of 18 years is recognised as a child under the POCSO Act.

Sexual Abuse of Children in China - A Horror Confronted

China has millions of sexually abused children. It is beginning to acknowledge their suffering

HUANG YANLAI was 74 when he first raped 11-year-old Xiao Yu. He threatened her with a bamboo-harvesting knife while she was out gathering snails in the fields for her grandmother in Nan village, Guangxi province, in China’s south-west. Over the following two years, Xiao Yu (a nickname meaning Light Rain) was raped more than 50 times, her hands tied and a cloth stuffed in her mouth. She was a left-behind child, entrusted to relatives while her parents worked in distant cities. Her father returned home once a year. Told that his daughter was in trouble, he asked her what was wrong but she was too frightened to tell him. So he beat her up.

Her abusers bribed her to keep quiet, giving her about 10 yuan (about $1.50) each time they raped her, threatening that “if this gets out, it will be you who loses face, not us.” They were right. When Xiao Yu finally confided to her grandmother and went to the police, the villagers called her a prostitute and drove her out of town.

Xiao Yu’s story came to national attention after it was reported by state media. At the end of May it formed part of a study released by the Girls’ Protection Foundation, a charity in Beijing founded to increase awareness of child sexual abuse, a crime officials preferred not to discuss openly until recently. The study said there had been 968 cases of sexual abuse of children reported in the media between 2013 and 2015, involving 1,790 victims. Wang Dawei of the People’s Public Security University said that, for every case that was reported, at least seven were not. That would imply China had 12,000 victims of child sexual abuse during that period. “I have never seen this many child sexual-assault cases, ever,” ran one online reaction. “Why is it such things were hardly heard of five years ago,” asked another, “and now seem all over the media?”

China is no exception
The answer is that social attitudes are changing; it is no longer taboo to discuss the problem. In 2015 Fang Xiangming of China Agricultural University, in a report for the World Health Organisation (WHO), estimated, using local studies, that 9.5% of Chinese girls and 8% of boys had suffered some form of sexual abuse by adults, ranging from unwanted contact to rape. For boys the rate is as high as the global norm, for girls it is slightly less so. Because of the country’s size, however, the absolute numbers are staggering. Perhaps 25m people under 18 are victims of abuse.

Chinese pride themselves on the protectiveness of their families. That children suffer even an average level of abuse is a surprise to many. But, as everywhere, children hide their experience. In 2014 Lijia Zhang, a journalist, wrote a first-hand account in the New York Times of sexual abuse at her school in the city of Nanjing in the 1970s. She said it never occurred to her and other victims to report the teacher. “We didn’t even know the term sexual abuse.” Even in Hong Kong, where sex is more openly discussed, a study of university students found that 60% of male victims and 68% of female ones surveyed since 2002 had not told anyone about their abuse. These rates of non-disclosure are considerably higher than in the West. Mr Fang, the author of the study for the WHO, says that if Chinese girls were more open, then the true rate of female sexual abuse might turn out to be as high as elsewhere, just as it is for boys.

In any country, child sexual abuse is hard to measure. China has never conducted a nationwide survey, though it is talking about holding one in the next couple of years. There are many provincial or citywide studies. But as in other countries, researchers use different measures and standards. And there are no studies of abuse over time, so it is hard to detect trends. Even so, there are reasons to believe that children are at growing risk.

First, China has huge numbers of “left-behind” children, like Xiao Yu. According to the All-China Women’s Federation, an official body, and UNICEF, the UN agency for children, 61m people below the age of 17 have been left in rural areas while one or both parents migrate for work. Over 30m boys and girls, some as young as four, live in state boarding schools in villages, far from parents and often away from grandparents or guardians. (A growing number of rural children whose parents are still at home have to board, because of the closure of many small schools in the countryside as village populations shrink.) Another 36m children have migrated with their families to cities, but their parents are often too busy to look after them properly.

Time for new thinking
About 10m left-behind children see their parents only once a year and otherwise rely on the occasional phone call. “Every time my mother called, she would tell me to study hard and listen to my teachers,” said one victim of sexual assault by a mathematics teacher at a school in You county, in the central province of Hunan. “I could not bring myself to tell her over the phone what was happening.”

How much abuse is inflicted on left-behind children is not known. Researchers complain that schools with large numbers of them often refuse to allow sexual-abuse surveys. But given their vulnerability, left-behind children are likely to be victims of such abuse more frequently—possibly much more so—than average.

Another risk factor is a mixture of ignorance, shame and legal uncertainty that makes it very difficult for children to defend themselves. Fei Yunxia works for the Girls’ Protection Foundation, the NGO that released the recent study of abuse cases. She travels to schools, giving sex-education classes. “No one tells these students about their bodies or how to protect themselves from harm,” she told Xinhua, a government news agency. Sex education in China is rare and never touches on abuse. The NGO says that 40% of 4,700 secondary-school pupils polled in 2015, when asked what was meant by their “private parts”, said they did not know. When cases are reported to the authorities, little is done, either because of legal loopholes, or because officials refuse to recognise the problem, or because they cover up for colleagues.

It does not help that China’s statute of limitations is only two years. Wang Yi of Renmin University says this is too short for cases involving child sexual abuse: victims often remain silent for years. There is no national register of sex offenders, though Cixi, a city in Zhejiang province, aroused controversy in June when it said it would publish “personal information” about major sex criminals after their release to let the public monitor them (some commentators worried about an invasion of privacy).

Cixi, you are awesome! Keep it up; set the pace.

The lack of well-developed sex-crime laws means victims are often failed by the justice system. In Liaoning province eight school girls aged between 12 and 17 were kidnapped, stripped, beaten, and forced to watch and wait their turn while men who had paid $270 per visit raped them repeatedly in hotel rooms. The men were charged with having “sex with under-aged prostitutes”, a charge that shamed the victims into silence. The law that allowed child-rape victims to be classified as prostitutes was scrapped in 2015. But a women’s legal-counselling centre in Beijing, which had led a campaign against it, was itself closed earlier this year as part of a crackdown on civil society launched by China’s president, Xi Jinping. No wonder that, as a lawyer in the You county case put it, “silence is the preferred solution.”

A shift in moral assumptions about sex presents another challenge. China is in the middle of a sexual revolution. Sex before marriage is more common. The age of first sexual experience is dropping. Most researchers into child abuse think there may be a link between such changes and sexual violence against children, if only because the revolution in mores seems to go hand in hand with changes to the traditional child-rearing system that, through intense surveillance, may limit abuse.

Ye Haiyan, challenging abuse
When a country confronts the problem of child abuse it typically goes through three stages, argues David Finkelhor of the University of New Hampshire. First the public and media become alert to the problem. This is happening. With the help of social media, and thanks to a greater willingness to speak out on social matters, campaigners have begun to organise. Ye Haiyan (pictured), known online as “Hooligan Sparrow”, helped arouse public awareness with her protests in 2013 against the rape of six girls aged between 11 and 14 by their school principal. In the next stage the government becomes concerned and starts to tighten laws. Then the police, social workers and public prosecutors begin to deal with problems on the ground. China is moving into this third stage.

Make them safer
Since early this decade, prosecutors and police have been spelling out how cases of abuse should be handled, from the collection of evidence to support for victims and procedures for separating a child from his or her parents. At the end of 2015 China adopted its first domestic-violence law. It says that preventing this is the “joint responsibility of the state, society and every family”. All this, says Ron Pouwels, UNICEF’s head of child protection in China, means that “China gets it and is determined to do something about it.”

But much more work is needed. For example, there are very few social workers. The government has set a target of 250,000 properly qualified ones by the end of 2020. But only 30,000 take up such jobs each year. Crucially, Mr Xi needs to reverse his campaign against civil society and his efforts to stifle media debate. Further improving public awareness of the problem will need the help of NGOs and a freer press (free, for example, to point out that abusers are often people in authority—Ms Ye, the activist, was harassed by officials for trying to do so). Over the past 30 years, China has enhanced the life prospects of millions of children by providing them with better education and health care. Now it is time to protect them from sexual violence, too.

The Catholic Church - Homosexuality, Celibacy, Hypocrisy and Apostasy

Let me state right out that I am not a fan of the Catholic Church; I have done too many stories on the devastation of child sex abuse by priests and their enabling by Bishops to think that there is anything but hypocrisy there.

The problem with gays in the priesthood is a prime example. The difference between gays and straights is just this - gay sex. That is what homosexuality is about and that's all it's about! So, what are they doing in the priesthood? Do not priests take a vow of celibacy? Is that not why they cannot get married? Yet, while God-ordained sex is forbidden in the priesthood, gay sex is fine? Does that make any sense? You can be gay but you can't be straight, and be sexually active.

Being gay and not being celibate should disqualify priests or Bishops from serving in the church. The Catholic church is a magnet for gays and pedophiles and its hypocrisy stinks to the high heavens.

Stricter rules are being introduced for trainee priests in Ireland, including mandatory evening prayers and supervised meals, after it emerged a number of priests were hooking up through gay dating app Grindr.

The figurative tightening of the cilice is being introduced at Ireland’s National Seminary in Maynooth will require student priests to eat breakfast and evening meals with senior staff in the college instead of dining wherever they want.

Shortly after the evening meal, the 55 men will also now have to attend an obligatory rosary at 9 p.m., according to the Irish Independent.

That will do them a lot of good: Matthew 6:7 - "And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their many words."

The trustees of Maynooth also plan to review social media usage by trainee priests, as well as what is described as the "appropriate use of the internet.”

The new rules are being brought in with the hope of limiting “any sort of behavior or attitude which contradicts the teaching and example of Jesus Christ.”

It is here where gays point out that Jesus never said or did anything about homosexuality (in the Gospels). Neither did he mention child sex abuse, or rape, or torture, or beheading, etc., etc. Does that mean He approves of them? 

Who do you think appeared to Abraham to warn him of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah if not the pre-incarnate Christ? Genesis 18:1 - And the LORD appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre... And as He bargained with Abraham, He said, And he said, 'I will not destroy it for ten's sake'. Genesis 18:32. Leaving no doubt about Who did the destruction. 

Did He then change His mind about homosexuality? That we certainly would have heard about, but we didn't! Hebrews 13:8 - Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever.

The move comes following revelations that there is a “gay culture” at the seminary with a number of the trainee priests using the gay dating app Grindr.

Archbishop of Dublin Diarmuid Martin told the Irish Times in early August that he was sending three student priests from his diocese to Rome instead of Maynooth as there was “an atmosphere of strange goings-on” at the Irish seminary.

While the new rules have been ridiculed on social media, one Irish bishop Pat Buckley, who has conducted his own independent ministry since 1986, says the trustees haven’t gone far enough.

“They should have put a ban on mobile phones because that would have sent a very clear message to the seminarians and to the Irish population that people, whether they are straight or gay, on mobile phones looking for promiscuous sex is not allowed," said Buckley, who is himself gay and in a civil partnership.

Amazing - he can't live with a woman, but he can live with a man. The Catholic restriction against marriage in the priesthood is quite simply absurd. It contributes greatly to the pedophilic culture in the church and its acceptance renders the entire church apostate at best.

Buckley also described the training college as having a “vicious gay subculture.”

Another Repeat Violent Sex Offender on Parole in British Columbia

Three times designated a dangerous offender, expected to commit violent rape with a very good chance of murdering his victim(s). That is who is living in the community of Chilliwack just east of here (Abbotsford), and where two sons and several of my grand-children live. 

It is sheer insanity to allow a monster like that loose on the streets of any city at any time. But that's Canadian justice where the welfare of the criminal is paramount, the sanity of his victims doesn't count for anything, and there is no concern whatsoever for the safety of Canadian girls.

Sentencing laws have to be re-written to protect Canadians from monsters like this. There is no reason on God's green earth for that man to ever see the light of day again. None! Minimum and concurrent sentencing for dangerous criminals is insane.

One of the many victims of a one-time designated dangerous offender convicted of violent sexual assaults of multiple women is upset the man is out on bail, living in a halfway house in Chilliwack.

Not only does the victim fear Kevin Scott Miller but she is angry he was released on bail after spending two years at large in the U.S. when he was supposed to be under a long-term supervision order.

One of Miller’s convictions from 1995 involved raping a 14-year-old girl near Victoria after grabbing her in a van and wrapping a cord around her neck.

Two months after that he met a 21-year-old woman at a cabaret downtown Victoria. The woman told the court she was drunk and tired, and the next thing she remembered was being strangled so hard her nose was bleeding.

Then on May 10, 1996 during an altercation with a prostitute, Miller pulled a drawstring out of his jacket and strangled her with it until she passed out.

“His counsel conceded that Mr. Miller may have used excessive force in defending himself from her attack,” according to a B.C. Court of Appeal judgment from 2000.

That was from the decision of Miller’s appeal of his dangerous offender designation, a label that comes with an indeterminate sentence.

“He’s a very dangerous man,” a victim told the Times.

A psychiatrist who testified in 2000 said that because of his youth, 28 at the time, his psychopathic score in the 86th percentile, and his excessive violence by the use of strangulation, Miller, if released, “would be much more likely than not to commit violent sexual offences with the possibility future offences would be much worse if indeed there is an aspect of sexual sadism present.”

Despite the evidence, the three B.C. Appeal Court Justices found the original judge made errors, and Miller’s appeal was granted and a new dangerous offender hearing ordered.

Miller was again designated a dangerous offender in June 2002. His appeal of that designation was also successful and the Crown applied for the designation a third time in mid-2005.

The result of all those proceedings was that on Jan. 17, 2006, Miller was sentenced to four years on each of two counts of aggravated sexual assault to be served concurrently.

Concurrently!!!!! What idiot judge ruled he serve his sentences concurrently. Thank God Stephen Harper took that option away from judges in sentences of child sex abuse.

He had been in custody for 10 years by then, and the judge ordered Miller be subject to the LTO for the maximum period allowed, 10 years.

The Times has learned that Miller reached the statutory release date on Sept. 17, 2008 (two thirds of his sentence), and his warrant expired on Jan. 16, 2010.

It was then that he began a series of conflicts at residences where he stayed, he tested positive for THC at one, and he continued to miss appointments.

In 2013, a provincial court judge sentenced him to a further 11 months in jail for a breach.

But it was in 2014 as he was serving the 10-year long-term supervision order that he failed to return to his Vancouver halfway house and slipped into the U.S. under dual citizenship.

On June 27, 2014 a felony arrest warrant was issued for the 45-year-old Miller, as he failed to register as a sex offender in Washington with Snohomish Country Sheriff’s Office detectives.

Then on July 8, 2014, he was caught in Albany, New York, registered as a sex offender, but released.

For almost two years he remained in the U.S. when finally this year he was apprehended and last week, on Aug. 19, he was granted bail.

His victim is upset there was no warning to the community: “And sadly, no justice for us victims.

“I really am just exasperated with the justice system,” she said via email. “I’m tired of referring to myself, and others, as victims; however, the system continues to re-victimize every person who has ever been raped or sexually assaulted. His release is the most ridiculous outcome I could ever imagine for a person who regularly breaches conditions, and has previously been unlawfully at large.”

The Times obtained a copy of a federal release notice regarding Miller and his requirement to reside in a halfway house in the Chilliwack area “to which he must return on a nightly basis.”

Miller faces numerous conditions on the LTO, including that he not be alone or in an isolated setting with any females; not to own, use or possess a computer; abstain from intoxicants; report all relationships with women to a parole officer; address issues and emotional instability and anger management; and participate in a sex offender program.

How likely is it that he will comply with those conditions? Just about zero probability. Someone do something, please. This is insanity! We have the Balaclava Rapist living in Vancouver, another child rapist living in Victoria, one in Mission just across the Fraser River from here. ARRRRGH!

Miller’s 10-year long-term supervision order began in 2010, which means that, adding in the time he was at large in the U.S., his order expires on July 7, 2022.

3 Charged After ‘Unspeakable’ Rape and Murder of 10-year-old Girl in New Mexico

This is all about drugs, how they dehumanize you, how they open you up to demonic invasion. These people should get the death penalty if proven guilty and it appears that will not be difficult.

This horrific story involves the 5th mother of children who either sexually abused them or stood by while others did, that I have reported today. How dreadful!

Fabian Gonzales
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. –  On the day a girl was going to celebrate her 10th birthday, she was found dead in her family's apartment by Albuquerque police officers, her dismembered remains wrapped in a burning blanket.

Details of what Gov. Susana Martinez and law enforcement officials described as an unspeakable crime emerged Thursday in a criminal complaint made public and filed against the girl's mother, her boyfriend and his cousin. The three were taken into custody late Wednesday night.

Police say the girl was injected with methamphetamine, sexually assaulted, strangled and stabbed before being dismembered. They did not identify her because authorities were still trying Thursday to reach some relatives to notify them of the girl's death.

A caller told a police dispatcher before dawn Wednesday that there was a disturbance in the apartment, said Albuquerque Police Chief Gorden Eden. Officers who went to the apartment complex in a middle-class neighborhood found the gruesome crime scene.

"This is a horrific tragedy for our community," Eden told reporters. "I want to assure the public that we will pursue justice and we will make sure that we exhaust every resource into this investigation."

By Thursday morning, a makeshift shrine for the girl had emerged underneath a tree at the apartment complex — with relatives and friends leaving flowers, balloons, stuffed animals and lit candles.

Martinez said in a statement the abuse and killing of the girl "is unspeakable and justice should come down like a hammer."

Michelle Martens
The girl's mother, 35-year-old Michelle Marten, her 31-year-old boyfriend, Fabian Gonzales, and his 31-year-old cousin, Jessica Kelley, face charges of child abuse resulting in death, kidnapping and tampering with evidence. Gonzales and Kelly have also been charged with criminal sexual penetration of a minor.

Gonzales denied having anything to do with the girl's death as he was led out of the police station in handcuffs late Wednesday as reporters yelled questions at him. The girl's mother said nothing as she was led out and placed into the back of a police car.

Police said Kelley was hospitalized late Wednesday and will be booked after she is released. No details were disclosed about why she was hospitalized.

According to the criminal complaint, the mother told police Gonzales drugged the girl so he could calm her down and have sex with her. She said Kelley held her hand over the child's mouth and she stabbed the girl in the stomach after Gonzales had choked her.

The complaint also states that the mother told investigators that Gonzales and Kelley dismembered the girl.

One of the police officers who arrived at the apartment found the girl's body in a bathroom, rolled up in a blanket that had been set on fire. The officer put it out.

Jessica Kelley
Gonzales has an arrest record stretching back to 2004, including a felony child abuse charge, driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest. It was unclear whether he was convicted of most charges, but he did plead no contest to a charge of child abandonment.

Kelley's arrest record includes battery, domestic violence and drug charges — most of them dismissed. Online court records show no criminal history in New Mexico for Martens.

Mug shots of Martens and Gonzales released by police showed them with bruises on their faces. In his statement in the criminal complaint, Gonzales said his cousin hit him and Martens with an iron.

Laura Bobbs, a local minister, told the Albuquerque Journal she was planning the girl's birthday celebration for when the child was supposed to arrive home from school Wednesday afternoon. They were going to have pedicures and manicures and eat cake.

Bobbs broke down sobbing and yelling Wednesday outside the apartment complex as detectives investigated.

"Who does this to a little child?" she asked. "Oh Jesus. Oh what evil."
