Getting Support : Speaking Out

Need to understand

I was sexually abused by my father, he said it was 'all in the name of love' and 'it was ok' 'everyone does it around here silly'

My father met my mother at age 35 mum was 19. It was the hippie era and he charmed her got her pregnant with me straight away and then told her they were moving 'out bush'. My brother was soon born and we lived 'in family communities'. We would sleep in tents caravans etc and some lived on propertys with others in large niceish houses. I played with the other kids and did what I was told. Mum did not like living like this and she would often move away taking me or my brother dad would follow and bring us back. Anyways when I was 7 mum took my brother and made it clear she would not live like this over the phone the next day and said she was in Victoria. Dad followed wanting to bring her back. She refused and we rented a small house for a while then they broke up for good one night and mum grabbed me, dad held my brother away calling us wicked and devil spawn. We tore off in the car. Dad moved into a yucky bungalow run down place then went to another and another moving around my brother went to community schools. I visited them when I was 9 and he sexually abused me saying 'its love, this is all love' did not feel like it I was scared I thought I was dying or already dead. I got back on the plane to mum but she insisted I got there again and he continued to do it. I refused to go again once I got my period. Anyways earlier this year I went to court against him and he said 'it was all in love' then 'you have been possessed by evil' then 'but I love you, I was showing love just like I am meant to' his friends also thought the same who came with him to court. They used to live together before he met mum and they also touched my bum but that was about it and they said 'all in love' and all sorts of other things. If I did something wrong I was to be wacked and locked in my room with no toys or food. Does anyone remember or know a Russell Brown or Peter Murphy? Russell (my dad) Peter ('uncle')

I have been seaching for people who knew my father Russell Brown (probably went via a different name) he was born in VICTORIA(AUSTRALIA) and abused me when I was young and still preaches in the familys way of 'love' and has old friends etc who are still part of his 'ways' and they all knew each other many years back when they were young hippies. I did not have much contact with the family and it seems more like groups who still preached some of their ways but did not deal as directly as before. Mum hated it and always tried to get out. I want to know if he has abused anyone else as I have taken him to court but he got a suspended senta e coz he had a clean record and is 'trying to clean his act up (I KNOW THAT HE HASN'T!) but if anyone else speaks out, goes to court and he gets guilty well he is spending his sorry life behind bars where he and all the others belong!

Have you ever asked your Mother if in fact she or your father ever we a part of the COG or Family? It sure sounds like it but it's worth discussing with her.
