The Story So Far...
Fight the Global Religious Super Power website is a not for profit Men's Child Sexual Abuse By Clergy Organisation, Resource Center and support group.
Hi, I'm Michael. I'm a survivor of Institutional Childhood Sexual Abuse by Clergy. I suffer from Complex PTSD, Anxiety and Depression, and fighting the illnesses everyday can be a real chore, so I know how difficult it can all be. For me, at this stage of my life, it really comes down to taking everything one day at a time! #MeToo.
'Justice Warriors' is term and logo for this support group. I aim to have an online group meeting once a month with 'Twitter' as the platform, I will update this site with dates and times when I have this up and running.
There's a variety of resource attachments on this site, below you will find several links to the various works of Dr Stephen Wegel. I have also included a link to an article from Kieran Tapsell, an author and lawyer who wrote the book on the Pontifical Secrets, Potiphar's Wife. I won't get carried away with the work of these 2 men, but their work is really worth a read, especially for the Sexually abused, It serves as a resource to us all.
On a final note, the You tube channel I created in 2020 is an educational platform for adults who may be going through the same thing or want to learn more about the subject, 'Clerical Childhood Sexual Abuse of Children and Adults'. There is a vast range of Documentaries and Docuseries to choose from. I upload new videos to my channel almost everyday. The link is provided below.
The catastrophe in this silent epidemic has had both current and long term social, cultural and political implications for us all. As we chip away at the everyday issues we face, perhaps one day the deeper truths behind the power of the Vatican and the Catholic Church will be revealed. There are some further resources below, Emergency Contact Information, Help Lines, Police Information Services, Men's Support Group phone number and much more. So please use the contact details below to share as much information as you can and let's SMASH the stigma associated with Men's Sexual Abuse. Please be kind to each other and feel free to email me with your thoughts, feedback and/or concerns.

Dr Stephen De Weger - Masters Paper (2016) Clerical sexual misconduct involving adults within the Roman Catholic Church. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology
Description: This thesis was an exploratory study into clerical sexual misconduct within the Roman Catholic Church. It sought to describe the experiences of women and men who, as adults, had experienced this form of professional misconduct. The findings were that clerical sexual misconduct involving adults is an unacknowledged, misinterpreted and harmful event, one involving the abuse of power and which leaves lifelong scars. Contrary to common thinking, these events were not affairs between equals, but violations of professional and religious duty. Survivors are seeking transparent and genuine acknowledgment of this reality in order for their lives to fully heal.
Dr Stephen De Weger - PhD Thesis (2020) Reporting clergy sexual misconduct against adults to Roman Catholic Church authorities: An analysis of survivor perspectives. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology
Description: This qualitative study sought to explore and describe the self-reporting experiences of victims/survivors of clergy sexual misconduct against adults (CSMAA) within the Australian Roman Catholic Church (RCC). These under-researched experiences were then compared with Anson Shupe’s theory of clergy malfeasance and its modes and tactics of neutralisation used against those who expose institutional deviance and corruption. The findings were that while, superficially, victims/survivors were positively responded to in some way, for the most part, these adult victims are actually viewed with suspicion, mainly because of their age. Accordingly, victims/survivors experienced further traumatisation, often more impactful than the initial abuse.
