We have a very tragic story out of France on the effect of a child being rape by the local Priest and how the rape led to the destruction of the entire family. This is more common then people realise, many male victims of Clerical rape have committed suicide, because of twins, guilt and shame.
Most suicides are committed in the first few years of the rape, and the method of suicide most commonly used is hanging, although other methods included medical and illegal drugs, drink and self-mutilation, the use of garden poisons is another common method. The most common motives for suicides include, feelings of guilt and shame for the unwanted rapes, and fear of been exposed within the cycle of family and friends. Sadly committing suicide is a very common practice, among children and adults that have been raped and violated by Catholic Church Clerics.
As has been pointed out that suicides were significantly more common in Male Rape Victims of clerical rape than in the general population as a whole. There is no comprehensive data available, that I’m aware of, but if there is anything to go by, of my class of boys of 46 in my class at the Industrial School I attended for 6 years, I’m aware that 44 of the boys committed suicide within 5 years of their release from the Religious run Institution.
Children who were raped by the Clerics in the towns of Ireland, also have a very high suicide figure, but not as high as the Religious run Institutions, like the Mother and Baby Homes, Magdalene Asylums/Laundries, Orphanages and Industrial School of Ireland. Boys and Girls of these Religious Institutions who survived them, describe suicide as more frequent in those boys or girls who suffered the cruelest abuse, of rape, beatings, privation at the hands of these cruel Clerics.
Suicides was frequently passed unnoticed because death was so common, among the boys or girls, because they had no family or friends to raise questions, after their deaths. Suicides were only noticed when committed by a well-known Survivor, who were few in number. In the many Religious run Institutions in Ireland the Clerics covered up the murder of children as suicides, and suicides as accidents. In other words the Clerics that ran the Religious run Institutions in Ireland, preferred to cover-up the murder or suicide of a child to avoid any scandal. Thus protecting the Catholic Church at all costs, this also included in most cases, destroying any and all data, documentations as soon as possible. Suicides were overwhelmingly committed by boys, reflecting the fact that the majority of Religious run Institutions in Ireland were for boys.
When the Clerics who ran the Religious Institutions in Ireland, raped a child, and the child committed suicide, we know from the few surviving documents that the child would be classified as having an illness, like Pneumonia or the most common, Measles instead of suicide. I know of children who had given up the will to live after been raped by their Clerics and thus could be regarded as concealed or passive suicides.
A little unknown fact, in most cases, medical doctors and Clerics, conspired in the Religious run Institutions in Ireland, to falsified the primary cause of death, including suicide, on the child’s death certificate. Please remember that in one Religious run Institutions in Ireland, Letterfrack Industrial School In County Galway, which was run by the Christian Brothers. The Graveyard contains the burials of over 176 boys, that we know about, all were beaten and raped to death. Many of these children lost hope and a many committed suicide to escape their tormentors.
Suicides were never reported by the Clerics in any of the Religious run Institutions of Ireland. Self-destructive behaviours by the children, such as self-mutilation or children who let themselves die, have never been reported. Self-mutilation was, in many cases, a cry for help or a desperate escape from the Clerics in the Religious run Institutions. The orphan children didn’t just die from the many infectious diseases, like starvation, and vitamin deficiency. No what forced them to commit suicide was the daily rituals of rape, beatings and starvation, to many orphan children, suicide was the only way out of their miserably existence.
I could go on— thousands of abused children throughout the world took their own lives after been raped by the Catholic Clerics and not just in the Religious run Institutions. Thousands of children who were raped committed suicide years later, they couldn’t surmount their childhood rapes, the sad story above the French Boy (link above) who killed his pedophile rapist Priest, learnt that the same local Priest also raped his father, the boy’s grandfather, on learning the horrible news, took his own life, knowing that the evil pedophile Priest had raped his son and now his grandson took his horrors and secrets to his grave.
Please where was the merciful God. This one Catholic pedophile rapist Priest, destroyed an entire family and their faith. We also learnt that the pedophile rapist Priest was moved from Parish to Parish to rape hundreds of more children, doing so for over 60 years, destroying many lives. Even though the Catholic Church knew what their rapist Priest did, kept him on their payroll by actively supporting his pedophile lifestyle, the boy killed his rapist by ramming a crucifix down the pedophile rapist Priest’s throat. In my opinion a fitting end to a pedophile rapist Priest. Owen Felix O’Neill
