So thankful to help people express what they couldn’t previously put words to.

Expressing trauma, emotions, feelings…. not easy for many, and for some impossible. It’s not easy to understand it, or express it.

The grandfather got nasty about his daughter – the mother of the victim. Even going as far as to say his daughter was responsible for the death of her husband who had died. Disgusting, sociopathic, nasty, defensive behaviour, about his own daughter. Dr. Phil pointed out clearly he had reviewed the case about the daughter’s husband and in no way was she involved. And told him what he thought about this attack on his daughter and how nasty, malicious and mean this was.

This predator kept on claiming his innocence, his wife kept on defending him, even though in the plea he admitted to two counts of sexual abuse against his 5 year old grandson. Choosing her husband, over her daughter and grandson. A forensic psychologist stated he reviewed the grandson’s video where he confirmed to police the abuse he endured in great detail and throughout the little boy sustained the details and there was no way he could have been coached to make false allegations.

The lie detector test was done and he failed it, on both questions.

Yet, he still kept claiming his innocence. Continue reading

Interesting chat with some Christians today.

At the food bank I volunteer at, there is a mixed group of people, some of whom are Christians, some are church people.

Had a really interesting chat today with two volunteers about spiritual progression, the damage caused by right wing, fundamentalist, hard line, shame/big stick led churches. And it was interesting to talk with people who also recognise the damage, abuse, spiritual abuse this causes, and how far from Jesus this is. And know about spiritual progression and how most churches are stage 3 led, and contained within stage 3 progression and why. Continue reading
