“It’s incredibly insensitive. I really wonder about the credibility of the man to hold the position he does both in the church and in World Youth Day. I would like to address the outrageous comments and attitude of Bishop Anthony Fisher, which we have found to be endemic to people unaware of the impact of sexual assault. The … ‘old wounds’ he speaks of never heal and victims of sexual assault suffer all their life. There is no place for his comments and he should be absolutely ashamed of them.”

Anthony Foster responds to comments by Bishop Anthony Fisher. Foster, whose daughters were repeatedly raped by a priest when they were at primary school in Melbourne,  is seeking an audience with the Pope.
