    I don't want to give any readers 'pedo fatigue', but this is another important story. Just the tip of the iceberg as normal.

    I could hardly read it, but forced myself. It is brutal.

    If these souls have the courage to come out and tell their story and suffer for it, the least the rest of us can do is read it and do something, however small.

    Post it on forums, send to your friends and family. Wake people up to what is going on under our noses.

    This is a video taken from the above post. This comes from the soul.

    The creativity and 'rapping' of her words are borne from her experience.

    This applies as much to young girls as it does to young boys.

    If you have a young son, young daughter, young niece, young sister, young grand-daughter or grand-son - look out for them. Boy/girl, it doesn't matter, this crap is happening everywhere.

    Extraordinary. Please watch.

    I've just read this whole thing again, something that disturbs me, is several times she refers being 'a point of light'.

    Without trawling the net right now, doesn't a 'thousand points of light' refer to occult things? Didn't George W Bush refer to a thousand points of light in one of his speeches?

    A ' thousand points of light' is also mentioned re the Castle in Belgium, Amerois....back in a minute with the link. A place where possibly the elite conduct human hunting parties? (Detailed in Fiona Barnett's account, not in Belgium, but in Australia).

    Here you go, Chateau des Amerois (French for America? I dunno).

    Former Vatican Ambassador Is Facing Sexual Abuse Trial

    http://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/24/wo...rial.html?_r=0
    The Vatican said on Tuesday that it had placed under house arrest and opened criminal proceedings against one of its former ambassadors, Archbishop Jozef Wesolowski, who has been accused of sexually abusing boys he met on the street while serving in the Dominican Republic.

    It is the first time the Vatican will hold a criminal trial on charges of child sexual abuse, and it comes as Pope Francis has been trying to set a new tone of rigorous attention in the long-running abuse scandal.

    The case has received widespread attention in the Dominican Republic and in Mr. Wesolowski’s native Poland, and officials in both nations have sought to have him tried in their courts.

    Continue reading the main story

    For Nuncio Accused of Abuse, Dominicans Want Justice at Home, Not AbroadAUG. 23, 2014
    U.N. Panel Questions Vatican on Handling of Clergy Sexual AbuseJAN. 16, 2014
    Mr. Wesolowski is being held “in a location within the Vatican City State,” according to a statement issued by the Rev. Federico Lombardi, the Vatican spokesman. He added that Mr. Wesolowski had presented documentation attesting to a medical condition, and was confined to house arrest after a preliminary hearing on Tuesday.

    The tiny Vatican city-state has no jail facility for holding prisoners on a long-term basis. The Italian newspaper La Repubblica reported that Mr. Wesolowski had been living in a convent. A bishop from the Dominican Republic said he had spotted the former ambassador strolling along a street in Rome in June.

    That was the same month that Mr. Wesolowski, who is 66 and a citizen of both the Holy See and Poland, was defrocked in a canonical church proceeding. He is appealing that decision.

    Father Lombardi said the arrest and trial of Mr. Wesolowski were “a result of the express desire of the pope, so that a case so serious and delicate would be addressed without delay, with just and necessary rigor.”

    The former Vatican diplomat was secretly recalled from Santo Domingo, the Dominican capital, in August 2012 after church officials in the Dominican Republic learned of allegations that Mr. Wesolowski had been picking up young shoeshine boys on the waterfront and paying them for sexual acts. The allegations came in a letter to church officials from a local deacon who was arrested while, he wrote, he was trying to procure child victims for Mr. Wesolowski.

    The authorities in the Dominican Republic did not learn of the allegations until Mr. Wesolowski had left the country. The district attorney in Santo Domingo, Yeni Berenice Reynoso Gmez, said her investigators had identified at least four victims. She said it was “the most terrible case I have ever seen” because the ambassador was accused of bribing poor children for sex, offering money and, in one case, medicine to treat a child’s epilepsy.

    The Vatican claimed diplomatic immunity for Mr. Wesolowski until last month, one day after The New York Times reported on the case. A spokesman for the district attorney said in an interview this month that the Dominican authorities were requesting information from the Vatican about how the extradition of Mr. Wesolowski would proceed, but that the Vatican had not yet responded.

    "Archbishop says he 'wasn't sure' that it was illegal to have sex with children
    The Archbishop of St. Louis, Robert Carlson, testified just last month that didn’t actually know it was illegal for priests to have sex with children."

    This is laughable if it wasn't so serious.

    "This, he said in an effort to explain why it was he did nothing to stop such crimes while he served as the chancellor of the St. Paul and Minneapolis archdiocese.

    Carlson gave a deposition to this effect in a lawsuit that against the Minnesota archdiocese and the Diocese of Winona. The suit claims that both were responsible for, in part for crimes committed against children – and were guilty of being a public nuisance – due to their refusal to release information on abusive priests.

    Today, Carlson is 69-year-old. He is facing an additional clergy abuse lawsuit in the Archdiocese of St. Louis, where he has served as archbishop since 2009.

    Court documents reveal that as many as 100 priests and church employees were accused of sexual abuse and Carlson helped to cover it all up.

    Now the Missouri Supreme Court has ordered the archdiocese to turn over all of the names related to these cases of abuse, under seal.

    Carlson tried to defend his actions, not coming forward until compelled to under court order. In his bizarre statement in response to the Minnesota lawsuit that was filed by a man who says that he was abused by a priest since the 1970s, Carlson told the plaintiff’s attorneys that he simply didn’t know that sex with children was illegal.

    “I’m not sure whether I knew it was a crime or not,” Carlson tried to convince the attorneys. “I understand today it’s a crime.”

    When asked specifically if he understood it was a crime in 1984, he said “I’m not sure if I did or didn’t.”

    “While not being able to recall his knowledge of the law exactly as it was many decades ago, the archbishop did make clear that he knows child sex abuse is a crime today,” spokesman Gabe Jones said of Carlson. “The question does not address the archbishop’s moral stance on the sin of pedophilia, which has been that it is a most egregious offense.”

    Like many others, I just cannot understand the WHY and WHAT the attraction is but came across an article at lunchtime today, which disturbed me a lot. I have highlighted the parts that are of particular concern to me
    . . . . . . . . . . . .


    Many researchers taking a different view of pedophilia


    Pedophilia once was thought to stem from psychological influences early in life. Now, many experts view it as a deep-rooted predisposition that does not change.

    As a young boy, Paul Christiano loved the world of girls — the way they danced, how their spindly bodies tumbled in gymnastics. In adolescence, as other boys ogled classmates, he was troubled to find himself fantasizing about 7- to 11-year-olds. His desires remained stuck in time as he neared adulthood. Despite a stable home life in suburban Chicago, he was tortured by urges he knew could land him in prison.

    "For having these feelings, I was destined to become a monster," he said. "I was terrified."

    In 1999, Christiano was caught buying child pornography. Now 36, he said he has never molested a child, but after five years of state-ordered therapy, the attraction remains.

    "These people felt they could snuff out the desire, or shame me into denying it existed," he said. "But it's as intrinsic as the next person's heterosexuality."

    In the laboratory, researchers are coming to the same conclusion.

    Like many forms of sexual deviance, pedophilia once was thought to stem from psychological influences early in life. Now, many experts view it as a sexual orientation as immutable as heterosexuality or homosexuality. It is a deep-rooted predisposition — limited almost entirely to men — that becomes clear during puberty and does not change.

    The best estimates are that between 1% and 5% of men are pedophiles, meaning that they have a dominant attraction to prepubescent children.

    Not all pedophiles molest children. Nor are all child molesters pedophiles. Studies show that about half of all molesters are not sexually attracted to their victims. They often have personality disorders or violent streaks, and their victims are typically family members. By contrast, pedophiles tend to think of children as romantic partners and look beyond immediate relatives. They include chronic abusers familiar from the headlines — Catholic priests, coaches and generations of Boy Scout leaders.

    Other pedophiles are "good people who are struggling," said Dr. Fred Berlin, a psychiatrist who heads the Johns Hopkins Sexual Behaviors Consultation Unit. "They're tortured souls fighting like heck not to do this. We do virtually nothing in terms of reaching out to these folks. We drive it underground."

    Studying criminals

    Some of the new understanding of pedophilia comes from studies done on convicted sex criminals at the Center for Mental Health and Addiction in Toronto, where researchers use a procedure known as phallometry to identify men whose peak attraction is to children.

    A man sits alone in a room viewing a series of images and listening to descriptions of various sexual acts with adults and children, male and female, while wearing a device that monitors blood flow to his penis. Like men attracted to adults, nearly all pedophiles respond most strongly to one gender or the other — females far more often than males. In searching for causes of pedophilia, researchers have largely dismissed the popular belief that abuse in childhood plays an important role. Studies show that few victims grow up to be abusers, and only about a third of offenders say they were molested. Scientists at the Toronto center have uncovered a series of associations that suggest pedophilia has biological roots. Among the most compelling findings is that 30% of pedophiles are left-handed or ambidextrous, triple the general rate. Because hand dominance is established through some combination of genetics and the environment of the womb, scientists see that association as a powerful indicator that something is different about pedophiles at birth.

    "The only explanation is a physiological one," said James Cantor, a leader of the research.

    Researchers have also determined that pedophiles are nearly an inch shorter on average than non-pedophiles and lag behind the average IQ by 10 points — discoveries that are consistent with developmental problems, whether before birth or in childhood."

    .....................

    I am concerned that in the future paedophilia will become normalised and accepted and maybe even become protected by law.
    The other bit that concerns me is that 1%-5% of the population (7 billion people) = between 7,000,000 and 350,000,000 paedophiles in the world right now

    I am also concerned at the lack of concern by the public which, contentiously, is reflected here on the forum. Frankly I wonder why more people don't care more when even the thought of it makes me want to scream my head off and string them all up by the nuts . . . .

    Just when I thought things could not get any crazier, they just did.

    Germany wants to legalise incest. For goodness sake, what's next? Legalise paedophilia?

    I have heard of Ted Gunderson before but never watched or read anything about him. You too might be in the same boat.

    He spills it all. 2005 I think it was when this vid was produced. Just halfway through it.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but he died in suspicious circumstances?
