Comparing Holy Cross to the U.S. Military on Reporting Sexual Assault

There are excellent news stories about how poorly sexual assault reports are handled around the globe, and especially in the United States military.

One especially good series of stories is in the San Antonio Express News.   The paper did a series on how the military handles reports of sexual assault, emphasizing throughout the series facts that show military victims of sexual assault are betrayed by the military too —  betrayed two times, by the perp and by the military.  http://www.mysanantonio.com/twice-betrayed/

The report presents evidence that victims are often retaliated against, face false claims of mental disorders,  and then find investigations into themselves.

This is my experience at Holy Cross.    When I reported the sexual assault to former president Michael McFarland, he promised strict confidentiality — that no one else would know my name, where I lived or my story.   The college lawyer confirmed it, but explained as the college lawyer he needed to investigate.   It wasn’t easy, but I gave him permission to talk to specific people for a limited time.   THAT is the confidentiality promised to me by Michael McFarland SJ and Dennis Yesalonia SJ.

But Holy Cross screwed up badly, for a long time — more than a decade.

Then the new president of Holy Cross retaliated:   banning me from campus, putting my name on an internal list without asking for permission and with no emergency, conspiring with other Jesuits and their lawyers against me without ever asking for permission and without any emergency, dropping me from being a class agent for the Alumni Association after MANY years when there was no reason for them to have my name about THIS, not letting me attend Fr. Brooks’ funeral — without any good reason, and filing a complaint against the professional license I earned a few years after I graduated from Holy Cross.

It adds up, and it’s difficult.

After YEARS of seeing that letters about problems are ignored by the college, I began a Vigil for Justice at Holy Cross.

I will be there for as long as it takes for the college to accept responsibility.

  1. The Jesuits used the same evil tactics with their clergy abuse victims in Ohio as well!

    The Jesuits run their victims down in sanctuaries with handcuffs, while the victim is on their knees at mass, as they USE the authority friends of theirs to physically and mentally rip and tear the victim in two different opposite directions, leaving serious serious scars on the Jesuit victims as well to bear.

    The Jesuits run their victims off campus, and make false accusations towards their victims, trying to defray the Jesuit’s massive guilts onto their victims.

    Jesuits force themselves so violently on their victims, they disassociate their victims’ minds, and they put their victims into comas for long periods (years) of time.

    The Jesuits tear and rip the eucharists out of the hands and mouths of their victims, while their victim is ever so,deeply responding religiously to the Eucharist. They laugh and laugh at all their Jesuit Violations, after more complaints come in from parents regarding a Jesuit who has more complaints against him , than that of all 45 residing University priests all put together.

    They continuously threaten their victims, first hand, as the fellow Jesuits try to alienate, isolate, retraumatize, humiliate, negate, violate the mind and body of the initial Jesuit’s victim. They attempt to run their victims out of their homelands forever, in an effort to erase the reality of crimes the Jesuits commit.

    It is a pattern the Jesuits and the Catholic Church uses, in an effort to destroy anyone they feel may be a threat to the power and publicity the Roman Catholic Church wants to hold tightly to, for all that matters to the clergy in this case, is that they are to be seen as perfect, for they want to be over and above and superior to the human race, in order to keep MORE and MORE MONEY COMING.

    THEY TRY TO DOMINATE THE UNIVERSE WITH EVIL, HATRED, CONTROL, CONDEMNATION (of all humanity except themselves), GUILT, NEGATIVITY, POWER, HORROR, MONEY, ,,,,,,,,RATHER THAN “”””””””LIVING AND RESPECTING LIFE AND THE UNIVERSE AS IT IS MEANT TO BE!

  2. The Jesuits in Ohio stand on the church sanctuary’s altar, USING their known befriended authority connected police standing behind them, as the Jesuit priest POINTS IN A CONDEMNING WAY DIRECTLY AT THE JEUIT’S VICTIM, WHILE SHE IS ON HER KNEES PRAYING THE THURDAY BEFORE PALM SUNDAY AT MASS, DURING THE LENTEN SEASON.

    THE JESUITS HAVE THE POLICE RUN DOWN THEIR VICTIM WITH HANDCUFFS, AS THE POLICE YANK THE GIRL IN TWO DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS VIOLENTLY, TEARING THE VICTIM’S HANDS, WRISTS, AND ARMS UP , LEAVING DEEP CUTTING SCARS ON THE GIRL FOR MONTHS AND MONTHS.

    THE POLICE THEN RUN DOWN THE GIRL ANY AND EVERY CHANCEMTHEY CAN, AS THEY LAUGH AT HER AND HARASS HERMVERBALLY, MOCKING HER AND HUMILIATING HER.

    THE U.S.A.’S TOP CATHOLIC OFFICIAL’S FAMILY THEN STALKS THE GIRL WHILE SHE IS AT COLLEGE, AS HE THREATENS HER, WITH HIS HANDS T HER THROAT IN HER VEHICLE, THEN USING HIS POWERFUL FAMILY’S POSITION TO SLANDER THE GIRL FURTHER, MAKING SURE SHE WILL NEVER SUCCEED AT ANY COLLEGE IN HER LIFE, OR BE ABLE TO,WORK ANYWHERE.

    AS THE RECENT WOMAN CATHOLIC NEWSCASTER SAID,,,,””ONE THING IS FOR SURE, THE,ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH MAKES SURE THEIR VICTIMS WILL NEVER WORK OR BE ABLE TO GET A JOB AGAIN, ONCE THEY TELL”””

    This was on the news this very spring!

  3. Regarding one of the horrifically evil Jesuit clergy abuse cases in Ohio, the girl, at the advice of Catholic Italian women in the church, is forced to leave the state for her own safety. She later comes back home to see if she can heal in her home territory, and heals while going public for she needed the public’s advice as what to do. The public send her to the city rape prosecutor’s office, where the girl needs to press charges. Within a matter of days or very very short amount of weeks, the criminal Jesuit who initially damaged and comatosed this girl, is found dead at the border coming back into the state of Ohio, from his visit to the Detroit Jesuit Headquarters.

    Then the high powered Catholic district attorney, corrupt state trooper, Catholic professors,
    Catholic rectors and workers, nuns, and numerous Catholic and “unstable religious power nuts”” all continue hitting on the victims with more hatred and retaliation.

    While the Pope, who the girl had an audience with, and who knew the clergy crimes,against this young lady, DID NOTHING!

    And WHY are the Roman Catholic Pews so EMPTY these days, do we need to ask?

  4. Barbara, you know so much and share it in such a powerful way. I agree with you about the hideous way the church and the Jesuits misuse power — always for their own benefit. Victims are targeted for daring to speak up about more betrayals of trust. I appreciate your willingness to share how you see it. Thank you!

    • If we were taught the real history of Catholicism, would most people be pouring their monies into the “”” TWO COLLECTION PLATES”””that Timothy Dolan suggested, laughingly, at the Vatican, during the Pope’s re-election?
      Many women who worked for the church for many many years, have said “” There is an evil and worst than evil DARKNESS IN THE MAKINGS AND PRESENCE OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH, BEYOND MEASURE!
