I know this is a very sensitive subject and, it can often be very painful to talk about or re live.
For those of you which I communicate with regularly, you have probably saw my comments on being a former catholic.
I was raised catholic and attended catholic school up until I moved to United States, Texas.
In catholic school me and my friends were like prey for the hunters. The priest would try every thing imaginable to create a situation to get you alone with them.
They would try to fondle us or give us a massage if we were upset or crying. on field trips, who ever the priest would sit with, they would attempt to fondle.
After our soccer games, they would hover around the shower so they could catch a glimpse of our nude bodies. The particular parish I was at had a few good priest but most were predators. If you tell the good priest what is happening, they would never say anything because they are in the minority.
If there was an incident and it became public,you would know because the priest would just be reassigned to another parish and replaced with a new predator.
I had 2 friends and we would practice a buddy system and looked out for one another. Its pretty sad when you have to deal with this as a kid.
I have been fondled and forced to fondle priest but I am very thankful that I was never involved in any oral or intercourse. Some of my friends and classmates were not so lucky.
Please tell me if you have ever been molested as a kid.
If you would like to just answer the survey it would be greatly appreciated.
You don't have to tell your story because I understand how hard this subject can be....Trust Me!
