    Lupton AZ- There is a clergy “husband” and “wife” team who abused not only me but all of our native American community causing PTSD, severe disease trama and mental, sexual and financial abuse. Most heinous, denial of abuse. They have controlled us to be Christian failures. I believe that their racism and bad talk of our minorities and members of our community. I have been to church they tell me to leave becauseI don’t “submit” and “obey” their controlled commands. They have so much time on their to make me or us liars, and the whole situation unbelievable. I truly believe it’s a total genocide of people, religion and family. The children that live there aren’t even their children. I believe they are big players in the kidnapping’s, human trafficking, violence and child molestion on our reservation. Theyve been in operation for as long as I was born , even before that. Some even seen a methamphetamine bust at the church and their home. This might be the ROOT of all evil. If anyone cares to check on us before all of us forgotten native Americans are extinct. Government clergy to me has authority to do whatever necessary to make sure we dont get adequate respect. We are human and love God as much as the next man. So this “Man” and “women” and “family” makes us liars, unbelievers, immoral sexually, homosexual, unloved with rumors, and willing participates criminal activities. Spreading of diseases. Warning: they might have contagious disease. They even spread rumors about me having AID. Probably to much methamphetamine abuse. The child is probably about thirty years old or older and goes to the Sanders high School. He just graduated from Manuelito children’s home last year. Again. Now going back to school in high school. Weirdest nobody says anything. They might also be able to get documents written up for human trafficking victim new identities after severe drug, beating and torture to forget who you are. My birth certificate is from Arizona. Help us. Marriage licenses too in Arizona. I believe they are using cult like control. The “man” and “women” control with sex, drugs and witchcraft. We need to make progress on our reservation I think these government clergy need to enter the real world and live in what they have developed with their Religiously vicious power of evil. I hated him and her molesting and raping me growing up and when I was drunk. Their group of goons, Helter skelter, skinwalker Nation, Homosexual gang cross dressers, I believe they just making a mockery of Christianity and God and his people using government power. I want to love and worship God in a safe environment. Amen and thank you. Po box 311 Lupton, Arizona 86508. Hopefully, I’m still alive after this. If not send flowers to my hospital bed. I probably had children with them when I was little. They probably sold them or killed them. #Justice #MMIW

    Hello I have information about a catholic priest who abused children in small town in northern Ontario Canada. Im not sure where to report it and it happened in the early 80’s. The information needs to come out and there needs to be accountability.

    2015 I started a petition at Moveon.org
    petition title:All rapist should be register sex offenders ;this includes pedophile clergymen… clergy" catholic priest and nun’s are capable of such crimes as sexual abuse on children (Ask a Survivor ) hear the victims voice and see our faces.(Abolish the Statute of Limitation) do to clergy sexual abuse on children" past & present.

    By law: all pedophiles should be registered sex offenders.
    including" clergy" catholic priest;"
    abuse;" we are asking for help in seeking justice.
    pedophiles, found a loophole in the religious system; become a Priest
    and get away with rape, sexual abuse and torture on children. Why does the sex offender laws change when it pertains to ( pedophile ) clergymen?

    The AG’s in every state need to do away with the SOL, for the children of sexual abuse……..the facts = the truth. my abuse happened when I was 12 / 13 years young.
    I was in my fifty’s when I started to remember……fact= truth

    The Pope’s / The Vatican need to stop putting the blame on 60’s sexual revolution…….fact = truth…..the Priest /Nun’s sex abuse on children started decades before the 60’s revolution…..!

    The Pope’s / The Vatican need to stop saying Priest / Nun’s….sexual abuse is due to the Priest / Nun’s being gay……the fact of the matter is" and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this one out"

    On this earth we have, born this way heterosexual" at birth born this way homosexual"…….Not born this way" Pedophilia’s…..!

    The Pope’s / The Vatican need to stop turning a blind eye to their pedophilia priest and nun’s………provide them with the medical help they need…..!

    Pope’s / Vatican need to try and walk in the footsteps of the victim’s….!
    help the victim’s…….the victims of priest / nun’s sexual are in the thousands…..!

    The Pope’s / Vatican abuse list" is a very long list"………decades long……fact….!

    Sincerely,
    Patricia

    How about a Federal Department of Justice investigation under the RICO Statue? Surely interstate transportation of children for immoral purposes or the child pornography ring discovered during the PA Grand Jury investigation qualifies as a Federal crime!

    I’m an empathe, so I feel everything around me and within me and it makes me uncomfortable and the things that i feel scares me and the things that I see makes my skin crawl. Please help me? Please pray for me? What do you or your family know about witchcraft, santeria, or voodoo and can you have them work on my behalf? My name is Ovaldo Brown. Just ask around, and can you also work on my behalf, if you do it?

    Thank you for doing this investigation it is so important to so many. Attorney General, Pam Bondi is doing one in the State of Florida. It means so much not to suffer in silence and helps us tell our story. For those who were children and never knew what sex was until they went to catholic school, only to be abused by nuns or not believed by the administrators, I’m sorry to all of you that this happened. You are not at fault. I love you my sisters and brothers. Let’s heal together. Lutz, Florida

    I want an investigation into these events; I was at a these places and have bad memories, of sexual assaults, black outs, dreams; all classic, I now know.

    My story begins with a humorous dream about being raped by a Catholic Priest, held down by a nurse with a surgical mask on, in the Forest Grove Oregon Hospital, the place taken for an asthma attack as a child, only once, while sleeping in my step father and mom’s bed, etc… This dream happened a couple years ago, and said in the dream, I’m going to get a priests collar and write PISSED on it. I’m now 60, and that hospital visit was between 5 and 9 years of ages. Never thought I had be assaulted, until this dream made me revisit my memoirs to see if it could have happened and a flood of assaults came back with, big black outs, and sexual incidents memories. I began researching; after spending years at college and a short career in journalism and three Congressional runs, and a traumatic divorce with children illegally taken. I immediately found evidence of notorious sex abusers and victims all around me my whole life, from being born in Eugene, moved to Portland, Forest Grove, Cannon Beach, Seaside, and at the Astoria swimming pool, where I was taken into the bathroom alone, etc.. now a skate park; all connected to the Cannon Beach schools, Grace Episcopal churches Astoria, Boy Scouts, Cannon Beach Church, Arch Cape Catholic retreat, where Maurice Grammond was hiding, a few miles from my home, after being blocks from me in Forest Grove before. More days brought more memories of being drugged, strangers, etc..things very much that should not be happening and now, I’m dealing with it all. God is kind and by Jesus, all is better, just to see all the reasons for such social suffering. CHILD RAPE is an act of war, simple. Now let’s fight the darkness with the light. I need referrals to real counselors and lawyers not working for the perpetrators. Any recommendations out there? God bless the survivors in Jesus’s name. I AM U
    Thank you, will give you update if you like.
    Sincerely
