any member of the clergy who sexually abuses a child is NOT representing God

but misrepresenting God.


Clergy sexual abuse of children

eg priests who sexually abuse

choir boys and altar boys

to me are committing

acts of industrial espionage

and should be treated as such.


they are also betraying the trust

of congregants who make donations

toward their cost of living / stipend.





an element of

sexual abuse

for many survivors is being betrayed

by someone we trusted.


Many of us

 were abandonded


sexual abuse often happened because someone breached their duty of care
