Daramalan leaps into the sex abuse ring

By johnboy - 23 July 2008 67

Not content with letting Marist get all the attention, the Canberra Times reports that Daramalan is stepping up its own sex abuse scandal.

    Five fresh compensation claims against the school have been lodged in the ACT Supreme Court in the past week on behalf of former students whom Lyons sexually abused in the late 1980s and 1990s.

I agree with Mr Evil the money thing is a bit of a cop out. And people do not stop coming forward because of comments like that. I mean no offence to any victims of Lyons or Chute, but we have to be honest here, financial compensation is a big furphy. I am just not convinced we can be sure about who, and how many people Paul interfered with. Having said that, I would just love to see Daramalan get sunk by this–same for Marist with Kostka Chute.

You see Paul screwed a lot of people figuratively and literally. Paul did not sexually abuse me but he certainly mindf*cked and manipulated me. That is not a benign action. I know what it is like to be sexually abused, but because it was not a school teacher, well, I can never get a cent. For some points of view it just looks like this:

“If he touched my pecker I stand to gain x amount of dollars, pay off the house, buy a new car, inground pool.
If he did not, then, nothing. Just feel done over”

Sorry about my cynicism. If you were abused by Paul go for it, sink those barstard Catholics I am with you all the way. If you were not, have a go anyway it will make no difference, no one will know any better, you can pay for the house down at Broulee you could not afford and the newspapers will have more stuff to write about.

CG you can’t just go plagiarising a whole article here to make a point.

Provide a link, quote selectively, sure.

A little more respect for this forum and its other members wouldn’t go astray from you blokes.

I am not a churchie person, but I did turn to the big guy after ainslie village – and it did give me some comfort.

I’m glad you got some comfort from the church – after what happened to me I ran away from the church screaming.

I have tried at times to get over that but it never works out.

sorry mick1965 – I prayed a lot, but didn’t go to church.

My family have always been registry office religious…

We go to church for births, deaths and marriages…

and I am of the anglican faith, not the catholic. No private schools for me, my parents wanted me at co-ed day 1.
