There are many issues, that churches and religious people fail so badly at.
These are 12 of the reasons why I was always going to be badly treated;
1. Yeah sure, come hurt me more..
I am an abuse survivor and it is commonly known survivors are treated badly by church people.
2. Watch out ‘demons alert’
I have a mental health disorder, which often is dealt with in a highly abusive manner by church people and often mental health is wrongly and abusively described as being ‘demons’.
3. Is he praying, or preying?
I was abused by a minister. Leading to the common practice of protecting the abuser and getting rid of the victim.
4. Keep silent woman!
I am a woman, who does ‘not’ believe women need to keep quiet, and I know this is what Jesus also believes and is Biblical.
5. Don’t hurt us…with the truth!
I am not afraid to speak the truth, and I know exposing the truth, is needed and I have emotional and spiritual integrity and courage. Most don’t.
6. Yeah, I know all your tactics!
I know a lot about how abusers operate, many of their strategies and the psychology behind it, and those who enable it, are their ‘apaths’ and I can easily detect it occurring.
7. Stuck at stage 3..?
My spiritual progression is further than most church people will ever be at.
8. How about a spot of ‘Selective Bible Verse Abuse’?
I don’t choose the immature ‘Selective Bible Verse Abuse, many do choose.
9. Flocks of mind controlled sheep?
I wasn’t brought up in churches, so haven’t been ‘conditioned’, ‘mind controlled’, into their usual ways.
10. Protect the perps..
I can see the bigger picture, of how ‘perpetrator protecting’, is not of Jesus, at all.
11. It’s all about reputation you know..
I don’t care about the churches ‘reputation’, when it comes to evil occurring.
12. Blind, deaf and dumb and dumber…
I won’t go along with the evil, that is ‘cheap grace’, ”forced forgiveness’, ‘forced compassion’, ‘forgive and forget’, ‘keep quiet about abuse’, ‘don’t speak up’ etc about abuse.

I will come back to this, and write about each of these 12 issues that generally and widely are dealt with so badly.
I realise now, I never stood a chance.
I have been abused for 2 years, by church people, because of all the above reasons. I have seen it clearly occurring and it is a massive amount of spiritual, emotional, psychological abuse, that I do not condone, accept, enable or justify in any way, at all.
But, so many do and they are all sinning and this is evil occurring.
I could write a book, based upon these 12 chapters, with Bible references to them all, and how this all affects abuse survivors – to help those harmed and abused, by religious abuse.
