For the last 12 months, I have assumed I would progress towards being a counsellor, and many more insightful counsellors are needed.
Insight into complex trauma, empathy for others, non apathetic mindset about abusive people and a Christian perspective, is a rare combination.
Christians can often be the most messed up and apathetic of all when it comes to how to deal with abusive people. And often fail miserably helping victims/survivors, with their judgmental, bible bashing, brainwashed, entitled views.
Dear Christians, God you are not.
And may I remind you Christians…..apathy is the opposite of good and is why you allow abuse and evil to continue within your churches.
And don’t even get me started on ‘cheap grace’. This evil is like the backbone of far too much of Christianity.
So, as I have more drive and passion, and a non apathetic mind regarding abuse, I know CHILD PROTECTION is needed and some Christians with guts to stand up and voice how abuse and child abuse – is evil.
And campaign and support those who are trying to make this society in which I reside – take more notice of the affects of child abuse, and how abusive people need dealing with legally in a far more appropriate way than they do now and have more appropriate consequences to where they can legally be allowed. And less of this ‘abusers rights to freedom and rights to live normally’ and more ‘children deserve to be protected from known predators.
I’m glad God grew me into being someone with so much awareness, insight, integrity and fully committed to doing what is needed, and NOT follow the crowd and listen to people who have behaviours and thinking, that perpetuate this increasingly unhealthy society and Christian view of keeping child abuse ‘hushed up’.
CHILDREN SHOULD HAVE RIGHTS TO LIVE WITHOUT BEING ENDANGERED BY KNOWN PREDATORS.
