Church and State discount price for rape/sexual abuse of children. Contributing editor-at-large Tess Lawrence calls them out.

CARDINAL PELL, how much would you pay for your “ plain vanilla ” rape of a child ? Oh, $150,000 max. That’s all?

And Prime Minister Scott Morrison, what would you agree to pay out in the case of non-penetrative sexual assault of a minor, you know, just your double cream plain vanilla masturbation, fondling of genitals, that sort of thing. Government computer says, $50,000 max.

Offensive, ain’t it. You bet!

The National Redress Scheme for victims and survivors of institutional child sex abuse not only gives the finger to the recommendations of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sex Abuse, but also demeans the long term impact, suffering and the life shattering consequences, mental and physical impairment endured by victims of sexual assault in the wider community.
