An assault case that Gloriavale tried to keep suppressed can now be revealed, shining light on a culture of child discipline in the religious sect.
Clem Ready has been convicted for assaulting his two daughters Connie Ready and the late Prayer Ready.
Clem Ready was sentenced to 12 months supervision in the Greymouth District Court in May this year.
Judge Tony Couch said the assaults “constituted serious breaches of trust that children are entitled to have in their parents that they will be treated properly”.
The case has been kept secret until now because Clem Ready had name suppression, and all details linking him to Gloriavale were also suppressed.
The suppression was lifted on Thursday after a hearing in the Court of Appeal in Christchurch, where Newshub made submissions arguing it was in the public interest.
Connie loves her dad still, even though her dad had used violence against her . Connie fought to have this case made public. Even though the people at Gloriavale would prefer it had remained secret . They sense that some of what they actively do is very wrong, and so therefore they also don’t like the idea that the public may become aware of the wrong that they are involved in
Connie fought for the case to be made public , because she wants the public outside of Glorivale to be also able to become more aware, themselves, of what’s going on .
Kudos to Connie . Wonderful woman .Wise and strong. And someone also willing to help change the future for everyone. To try do her own part to help make the world a better place
The NZ citizen need to watch through the video in the news link above, and then ask themselves , how the hell can this be good, and how can it be allowed to happen ?. How can groups that are actively involved in this type of thing ,be able to get rewarded through charity status?
All humans only get one life to live . How wrong that an organized group of what acts as if its been doing good, and gets rewarded through charity status
Is actively ruining this life, for some
How sad that Connie was forced to even-need to make this problem public . All of that anguish and struggle might have been all avoided , if only there was some more regulation in regard of what goes on within closed organized religious groups
Connie might have been saved from anguish and many tears ?
The dads violent action is connected back to the religious groups teaching as well too . So in that sense ,both the father and the daughters, are all become victims of bad teaching
“Victims” of bad teaching
If the group was instead an Isis inspired group,of what was actively involved in teaching violence against NZ citizen ,then NZ citizen would quickly become outraged about it going on .Right ?
Sure they would . Real fast
And yet, if its a group claiming to be Christian ,of what is helping to teach violence toward children citizen of NZ , most our citizen in NZ ,wont even care less
Because it doesn’t ruin their own lives,any at all
They allow themselves to act in this selfish irresponsible manner. By “falling back” on the age old fucked-up idea, that religion is taboo and about rights of religious liberty (IE: a no go area where no “outsider” should ever dare to intervene )
Even so called main stream Christian are able to absolve themselves of responsibility of this violence of what is allowed to continue to be taught within closed cult like religious groups . By the same approach
With no loss of sleep
So many lives are still being ruined within closed religious groups ,worldwide . Due to these ongoing acts of irresponsibility
Perhaps hell would be full of mega numbers of irresponsible mainstream Christian? . Imagine how indignant they’ll all feel?. Considering how they had gone through the motion and went along to church, followed with the usual routine and read their bible, and prayed and praised and totally “brown-nosed” up to Jesus, and all.Rada rada rada . However had just chosen to act passively irresponsible (unlike Jesus did in John 2 : 13 -22)
The mainstream Christian have remained silent, and passively acted irresponsibly as well too, even while the Catholic Church hierarchy long tried to prevent sex abuse from being exposed
Mainstream Christian tradition to act passively irresponsible
Mainstream Christian generally still remained relatively silent themselves? (preferring to allow it to remain as if it were the total responsibility of the church hierarchy alone )
Great way to quickly “pass” the buck
Little wonder that justice, for people sexually abused by priests, was such a long time coming then?
Wasn’t like Christian were up in arm and even acting “outraged” ? . Was it?
No not really … Most had remained silent as church mice
Not like many were bothered to lose any of their own sleep over the thought of the irresponsible disgusting mess ?
Yeah naaa ,really not “all that bothered” .. Aye?
Few even cared (so long as the crime didn’t happen to involve their own lives “directly”)
Therefore most didn’t care less
Throughout generations.So much harm has been able to continue, in this way, due to citizen irresponsible choice to take the passive approach
