Colm O’Gorman, who is Executive Director of Amnesty Ireland, spoke about his abuse in a Twitter thread ahead of Pope Francis’s visit to the country this month. This is not the first Pope’s visit to the country. The first one took place when the current LGBT activist was a 14-year-old boy who was abused and raped several times by a Catholic priest in a church he attended, everybody in the church knew that he was a child molester, but did nothing to stop him from preaching, so it continued for 3 years (against him in particular, but in fact the priest’s work in the church continued longer and he had many victims, some of which suicide after being raped by him). O’Gorman says that the parishioners had complained repeatedly to bishops about the priest’s behavior but the church took no action and Mr. O’Gorman had to file a criminal complaint in 1995 for his abuser to be suspended. This is not the first time O’Gorman has spoken publicly about his experience of sexual abuse. He has been featured in several documentaries about his experience, and published a book about it called Beyond Belief in 2010.
