Religions Organsations and the Australian Defence Force

Religious institutions and the Australian Defence Force are vast hierarchical organisations that tend to react defensively whenever under attack from outsiders.  The Victorian Government has announced a Parliamentary inquiry into sexual abuse of children by religious and other organisations.
The Federal Goverment should do the same with the Australian Defence Force.  A judicial inquiry is needed to restore faith in the ADF as a professional high quality organisation. It is understandable that a military organisation would be concerned about operational capacity being damaged by an outside inquiry. However, operational capacity must be damaged by rapists and bullies being protected and victims left unacknowledge when they still remain in the organisation and have to serve together.
