I’ve added a new section called Church Help?
This section is to expose the truth of what happens when abuse victims go to the church for help.
Jesus came to free the oppressed. That is a fundamental mission of the church. We cannot think we are on mission with God while the church is failing to correctly respond to the abused within its own doors.
Consequently, I think it is critical to shine the light on what is actually happening when people go to the church for help. Not every church responds to abuse wrong. Unfortunately, I believe the ones that respond correctly are in the minority, not the majority.
This is something that must change. The only way that can happen is to 1) expose what is happening to reveal the problem, and then 2) outline how to correct it. That is what I hope to accomplish.
