Sexual and other abuse committed by Christian Pastors and the Clergy
Table Of Contents
What’s the problem?
Clergy abuse occurs when a member of a religious congregation – such as a Christian Pastor – takes advantage of his position of influence to commit a sexual crime. It is common knowledge that church organizations have concealed incidents of sexual abuse in the past. Only recently have these organizations come forward to recognize and resolve their past cover-ups and try to heal the damage caused to children and their parents.
Sexual abuse is always a devastating crime, but when it is committed by a trusted member of the clergy, it is especially wrenching. In many cases, religious leaders knew that some members of their clergy where habitual sexual predators of children. Yet, when faced with this fact, they did nothing. In some cases, they even covered up these crimes, moving guilty parties to new communities, and exposing hundreds of other children to sexual abuse.
While there has been a lot of publicity about Catholic priests who have victimized children, sexual abuse can occur in many other religions, including the Christian, Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian, and Jewish faiths. Whether it was a pastor, priest, minister, or rabbi who abused you, you deserve justice for the serious effect the abuse has had on your life.
