I have fought with this for a long time. Anyone who knows me will tell you I have defended the Catholic Church most of my life as a victim of clerical abuse.
I always said do not tar them all with the one brush ... covering up their brother priests' evil crimes ... clergy abuse … etc, etc.
But I have finally woken up. I have seen no prove whatsoever that these priests will stand by me ... except for one … yes folks, only one. From the start until now.
The Laypersons don't want to know. Certain Catholic friends on Facebook don't want to know. I deleted nearly 80 of them so called Catholic apologists for clergy abuse/rape. Shame on you.
Archbishop Eamon Martin said to me when I met him as a Victim of Evil clergy abuse, "if your abuser - (and by the way Eamon knows him well) … was standing in front of you I would tell him to his face you abused Denis."
What's keeping you Archbishop Eamon, Primate of all Ireland? You could ease all of my pain and suffering overnight.
But no you won't do that will you? A disgrace of a man you are. Another Bishop with no backbone - Coward!
Shame on the lot of you.
Hope you are proud of yourselves. It took me nearly my life to come back to the church. I helped out. I was very humble to the Priests ... even my Parish Priest who just, let's say, did not like me one bit. But that is going come out - The Lot.
So I have decided to refrain from Holy Communion, and not go to Mass again.
Well done guys - you have destroyed my faith.
You have ruined me mentally and spiritually - you have disowned a child of God.
