It should also be noted – right wing, fundamentalist churches – are a perfect place for narcissists, sociopaths and psychopaths to hide out and be welcomed. And this is why there will always be a number of them in every church where abuse is condoned.
These churches are more cult-like – than church-like and they specialise in oppressing victims of abuse and encouraging, protecting and worshipping abusers.
And this is across all denominations and is far more common within all denominations, than is generally known. But more common within right wing, fundamentalist, conservative churches. It is not just the Catholic Church.
Any church where they encourage hitting children – is abusive.
Any church that suggests the victim was in some way to blame – is abusive.
Any church where they do not hold abusers fully accountable for their actions – is abusive.
Any church where they keep abusers in ministry – is abusive.
Any church where women are oppressed, not allowed to preach, not allowed to work etc – is abusive.
Any church where LGBTIQ people are not welcome – or told this is ‘sinful’ – is abusive.
The list is endless, as to the types of abuse – perpetrated in churches, and the excuse be religious beliefs.
