A post to my page….pretty popular amongst abuse survivors.
When did society become…..
All about being nice and kind to people who harm others/abusers, make excuses for them, tell us we should feel sorry for them, let them off with little consequences, give them lots of support, let them out of prison repeatedly….that’s if they even go to prison of course.
And worse….tell the victims of these people, who have suffered, to move on, get over it, stop dwelling etc and show little empathy and support to the victims.
I see this blatantly, in society, in Christianity….
Society is getting increasingly more screwed up about this.
Which is why society is getting more selfish, more egocentric, more abusive and why we have bullying epidemics, narcissism epidemics, and increasing domestic violence, child abuse etc.
When did society loose the balls to tell people who cause harm – the truth???
When did society decide to ignore abuse/abusers and not care unless it happens directly to themselves???
I have the guts and courage to call them out on it. But there are not many people who are willing to, or have the integrity or courage to. Or care enough about others, to do what’s needed, or do what’s right, moral.
Society is all about ‘look after yourself’, ‘don’t invite negativity about others into your life’, ‘mind your own business’, ‘they didn’t do anything to me – so why should I care?’…
And I could be here all day writing about the all too common Church ways of justifying cheap grace, protecting abusers, damaging abuse victims….they can all too often be the worst. And I am a Christian, a real one, but I do not excuse, or condone their crap/abuse.
Society, Christianity need to ‘grow some balls’ as the saying goes.
Sorry any men reading this, it was just too funny, not to add 😉
