CHURCH SANCTIONED CHILD ABUSE / THE MURPHY COMMISSION OF INQUIRY: Learning to Banish Denial as we Read Behavior

The Murphy Commission of Inquiry states that from 1975 to 2004, there were 320 claims of child sexual abuse, not one of which was investigated, or appropriately dealt with by either the Dublin archdiocese or the Garda (Irish police). This, of course, emboldened pedophiles who committed their crimes under the protection of the church. This equates to church-sanctioned child abuse and many of these children, now adults will suffer as they mature and grow.  Healing on many levels is needed since such abuse alters destiny.  When abuse threatens faith in the true God a horrible injustice plays out and with eternal consequences that impact individuals, families, and communities.  

One of the Bibles most serious warnings reads: But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea (Matthew 18: 6).  I don't quote this to say that the abused children sinned in anyway because they did not.  People in authority shamelessly ensnared these children, but those who committed this crime will be held accountable by a righteous God.  The level of such a crime is serious indeed. 

The Murphy Commission Report concluded that the Irish police (Garda) colluded with the Catholic Church in covering up massive sexual abuse of children. The Irish government joins the United States and Australia who launched their own investigations. Only when forced to do so did the church, kicking and screaming, decide to face the facts; exploring their moral failures.

What we already know from investigations and criminal proceedings in Australia and the United States is that the Catholic Church became a haven for these pedophiles. No one need question why these men positioned themselves to have power over children as their pastoral office gave them easy access.  What followed was a climate of helplessness and repression as more and more children were abused.

People who immerse themselves in such behavior have seared their conscience. What began as temptation evolves into compulsion. Now the human identity shifts to the near exclusivity of the predator operating in partnership with what is evil. The Holy Spirit is rejected to the extent that compassion and empathy are forsaken. ...by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron...(1st Timothy 4: 2). The appearance of respectability is carefully constructed and nurtured, often disguised behind a societal facade of anonymity.

The unseen world of demonic activity is devoted to influencing any that are inclined to intervene as the Caustic Agent for Change. The Holy Spirit invites us to cast out and off those internal voices that speak fear into our minds as we evaluate situations, informed by whatever knowledge we may have. Denial of the truth, abdication of choice, apathy, and complacency will always operate within the context of the supernatural. These are dysfunctional strategies that strive against the God-ordained element of choice working within His precious gift of free-will. These are the tools of defense given to us by a loving God. That we do not embrace choice as a weapon of warfare makes us part of the problem, culpable; in need of repentance and restoration. As long as we can form the words in our minds to pray and seek God’s will in any given challenge it is a lie of Satan that we are helpless. And if we remain silent...

In this blog we have been focusing on the Catholic Church, but all churches and many institutions have been guilty of weighing scandal against profits, status, and image.

Satanic intent thrives on ones willingness to maintain secrets. It operates best in the satanically inspired climate of fear and denial. Only the truth has the marvelous potential to set victims, perpetrators, and even passive facilitators free.
So what are the roles that we can identify from the Murphy Commission of Inquiry as being operational?
The Perpetrator’s: Those masquerading as ministers of the gospel; marginalizing every honorable servant genuinely called to that office / pedophiles that abuse children.

The Passive Facilitator’s: Four archbishops, various priests and nuns who turned a blind eye, as well as the Irish Garda (police) who for thirty years aided in the cover-up and without whose assistance these crimes would not have been possible to sustain. Any parent who refused the truth or, knowing the truth, failed to act in defense of their child.

THE CAUSTIC AGENT FOR CHANGE: All those who worked to dismantle these secrets, including those reporters brave enough to dig deep into the cesspool of such horrendous sin. Each and every victim who continues to speak up, turning what Satan meant for evil into something good as they bravely question and tear away at the fabric of protectionism. Any who have or will play a role in the investigative inquiry and any future court action since any perpetrators still living need to be fully prosecuted. Each person that refuses to minimize these crimes. The Irish justice minister, Dermot Ahern. Any in positions of authority within the Catholic Church that embrace the process of truth, repentance, and accountability.

Why did it take so long for the Caustic Agent for Change to ride in on a white horse? I'm guessing that many tried. Some did all they could, while others did not. Often it takes time for a victim to gain enough healing and inner strength to share their stories which is why we must, when we have the knowledge of such a crime, to speak for them.

In naming these roles and understanding these concepts we are better able to identify similar dynamics from our own lives. For more information read my post: For Evil to Flourish Two Roles Must Be Adopted. The Christian Imperative Demands a Third; November 22, 2009.
