Attorneys fighting against the Presbyterian Church for enabling sexual abuse by pastors & clergy
What’s the problem?
While there has been a lot of publicity in the news about victimization by the Catholic church, sexual abuse can occur in many other religions including the Presbyterian faith. Whether it was a Presbyterian pastor, a priest, minister, rabbi, or any other member of a religious clergy who abused you, you deserve justice for the serious effect the abuse has had on your life.
Anyone raised in the Presbyterian faith is taught great reverence for the power and authority of the church. Too often, protecting the power and image of the church clergy is the driving rationalization for covering up their crimes against children. Church leaders too often cover up or turn a blind eye to evidence of child sexual abuse and attempt to deal with molestation exclusively as a matter of sin and not as the serious crime it is.
