Pentecostal leader covered up child sex abuse
Jul 15th, 2019 at 7:44pm
 
Our PM shared a stage with him.

Last year, a Royal Commission found that a Pentecostal leader covered up the abuse of a seven-year-old. Scott Morrison wilfully shared a stage with him. His apathy toward victims is painfully clear.

On July 5, Prime Minister Scott Morrison and his wife Jenny stood on a stage beside Pastor Brian Houston, a Pentecostal religious leader censured last year by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sex Abuse for covering up the sexual abuse of a seven-year-old boy, abuse that continued for five years. The occasion was a Hillsong church conference, and Morrison used the opportunity to call for more love in Australia, and less judgement. Morrison has a long association with Brian Houston and described him in his maiden speech to parliament as his mentor.

The abuse concealed from authorities by Houston was perpetrated by his father, Frank now deceased, also a pastor and a founder of the Hillsong church. The Royal Commission found that Houston the younger failed to follow the church’s own protocol on the abuse of children, did not support the victim, and failed to notify police of his father’s crimes. Indeed, Houston is reported to have told the victim it was his own fault for “coming on to” Frank.

In the last six months two former Liberal Prime Ministers, John Howard and Tony Abbott, publicly demonstrated their support for convicted child sex abuser Cardinal George Pell. This support included a glowing character reference to the court from Howard, and phone calls from Abbott to Pell in jail. Abbott also declared that Pell’s conviction was a “devastating result” for Catholics. Abbott has a long relationship with Pell, whom he has described as his “colleague and mentor.”

It  is somewhat unnerving that three Liberal Prime Ministers have sought the counsel of men who are deeply involved in the sexual abuse of children, either as the perpetrator, protector of the perpetrator, or in Pell’s case, both. What is even more unnerving is that not one of the three Prime Ministers has seen fit to distance himself from the accused men, despite the allegations being proven in the case of Pell, and admitted in the case of Houston. None of the Prime Ministers appears to have the slightest compunction about acknowledging their long and ongoing personal relationships with these men, for whom they continue to profess admiration, respect and esteem.

Indeed, so comfortable with his mentor is Scott Morrison that he and his wife publicly prayed with him at a televised event.

What this deliberately public support implies is that the Prime Ministers do not believe the victims, or perhaps, even worse, they do believe the victims, but regard the crimes committed against them as irrelevant. Let’s not forget these are Prime Ministers we’re talking about, the leading legislators in the country. All three of them admit to having sought advice, political and spiritual, two from Pell and one from Houston.

If the leader of your country consorts with those who have committed or concealed child sexual abuse, how can your country ever be safe for you? The Prime Ministers have given permission for anyone to disbelieve you, and this leads us into a narrative with which survivors are heartbreakingly familiar.

A tone is set by the Prime Ministers. It becomes the zeitgeist. It says, powerful men or men embraced by powerful men can do anything they like, and it will be overlooked. This is the belief of our time, a belief that is evident far beyond the circumstances of child sexual abuse, but is perhaps most horrifyingly distilled in that specific circumstance.

According to this report, police re-opened their investigation into Houston’s handling of the sex crimes committed by his father in 2018. It is simply not credible to think that the Morrisons are unaware of this situation. They choose to overlook it. We watch as our Prime Minister and his wife worship with a man who concealed sexual crimes against small children.

The friendship, trust and very public support of a Prime Minister, current or past, are powerful weapons of normalisation. In standing side by side with Brian Houston, Scott and Jenny Morrison have resoundingly contributed to the normalisation of Houston’s failure to properly act against a perpetrator of sexual crimes.

Sadly, we seem to lack any political voice powerful enough to challenge this moral collapse.

The 7 year old boy, his family and anyone else who is disgusted by the churches behaviour to child sexual abuse care....Nothing has changed!!!

We all know you are nothing but a Liberal troll, but seriously 'who really cares?'

How does worshipping with a man who not only covered up child abuse but blamed the victim for coming on to his father make Australia big and strong and powerful?

Go ahead, anybody who commits such crimes against children need to be exposed.

Just as people like Morrison, a man in a powerfull position who is giving at the very least tacit approval of this man by sharing a stage with him, should be called out on it.

A good man will always strive to do good and an evil man will always try to do evil.

But to make a good man do evil things, that takes religion.

Ok .... so what are you waiting for?

Get cracking


all the jews in the sewer and throughout the membership here should be able to help you in that


instead of droning on and on and on against muslims ... for example


and now against pentacostals


you're all out of work

non employed

or on welfare

or paid to 'study your religion'


which is why you all have so much time to devote to driving wedges throughout every corner of society


EXCEPT YOUR OWN

so start pulling out those hidden files of jewish depravity against children, for one


and  you can start, can't you, by identifying the 'baby faced killer' pervert who is so exhausted by his jail sex marathons that he can't fall out of his prison bed in the morning

i notice you got rid of that thread quick smart



then you can move on to that repulsive jew bitch mother of eight headmistress girl rapist who's been hiding out in israel for years while filthy looking rabbis with moth eaten beards screeech in teh court that she's not well enough to be extradited to Australia to face the charges


go on


get cracking  !!!
