A lot of church people are just as screwed up as secular society, if not more so.
They hang on to certain views and certain Bible verses and they use that to avoid wisdom, to avoid responsibility, to stay apathetic and basically use it as an idol for all the wrong reasons.
Cardinal Pell – someone I have identified easily as having the dark triad traits – along with his matey Sir Tony Abbott – caught out lying – again http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-08-11/church-report-found-priest-guilty-of-sex-abuse-no-charges-laid/5662984
Now some Christians will just automatically revert to – ‘we must not assume that is correct, we must not listen to gossip’ etc….perfect excuse to not believe that evil is occurring. No thought or empathy for the victims. Perpetrator protecting, at it’s best – only with church people’s crap as the excuse.
And this kind of evil, is not just a Catholic Church issue – I have been shown that very clearly, over the last few years.
Do any of these church people even try to imagine what it is like to be abused and not be believed and treated like shit – abused more? Evidently not. Empathy – not common. Yeah sure there are counsellors willing to listen to the abuse – all re-active stuff after the abuse has occurred, blab on about compassion for abusers and even then victims get doubted, but who is actually trying to stop the abuse?
It sure isn’t people like Cardinal Pell. And he’s been promoted. Oh how that is something that so familiar with me – an abuser – who gets away with it – the victim treated like shit – lies corruption, cover ups – no-one steps up – and the abuser is promoted.
Commonly occurs, it would seem. For the victims, this disgusting evil behaviour, is more abuse. And so few care. Such good ‘Christians’, aren’t they?
Talk about mind controlled, abuse encouraging, victim blaming, victim re-traumatising, evil occurring. But, apparently I am wrong to think this. It’s my ‘issues’ to care about the victims and point out this evil. Yeah sure ‘I’ am the one with the issues…
I must not call them abusers, or define them for what they are — dark triad traits – lying, manipulating, abuse enabling ‘abusers’. And that’s what all these people are – but they won’t admit that.
I’m meant to just stay quiet, and say nothing and let them all carry on. Or I am the one with the issues – my sense of requiring justice, my labelling, my need for truth – apparently all bad.
I despair. And the fact remains, none of them are going to listen to me – because they all blame my past and my PTSD. The perfect scapegoat, the perfect excuse to not self reflect.
I am ordering the book ‘People Of the Lie’ – M Scott Peck M.D – because I know for a fact that there are many people who are liars and believing lies within the church.
And for those who think this does not occur a lot in churches and throughout ‘Christianity’ – okay keep deluding yourself.
And I remind you that it states quite clearly in the Bible about false teachers increasing and about wolves in sheep’s clothing. If you need to ignore that to make your life easy and so you can go with the flow, then shame on you.
And shame on every single one of you, who has made the life of an abuse victim worse – with all your spiritual abuse, your emotional abuse and your lack of courage and integrity to do what is right.
Shame on you all.
So sad to think how much you choose to serve Satan.
