Nationwide Attorney for Minister & Clergy Sexual Abuse Victims
What’s the problem?
In recent years, media reports and judicial decisions have documented the problem of exploitation of children and young people by ministers, pastors, and priests. Child abuse in the church has been so widespread in some jurisdictions that dioceses have needed bankruptcy protection to manage their liability to the victims of unscrupulous clergy. In many cases, the acts of abuse will have taken place many years before, and proof of liability on the part of the defendant minister or priest will present potential problems.
Religious sexual abuse is a non-denominational problem. While the Catholic church scandals have been well-publicized, Christian churches also receive large numbers of reports of children being sexually abused by ministers, pastors, and other church officials. Christian churches – like many other denominations – have had a tendency to support and protect abusers in their congregations even though this puts more children at risk.
For this reason, many victims of abuse in the church are silenced in one way or another. Unfortunately this situation only allows the perpetrator to continue his or her pattern of abusing and molesting children. If you were a victim of child sexual abuse by a Christian minister or clergy from any other denomination, we encourage you to come forward. You have legal rights and options.
