What About the Children?

Child Protective Services will aggressively rescue children who are physically or sexually abused, but the deep wounding and mental damage caused by religion, which can last a lifetime often doesn’t get attention.

The institutions of religion in our culture are still given a privileged place in many ways.

Criticism is very difficult!

Parents are given undue authority to treat their children as they wish, even though the authoritarian and patriarchal attitudes of religion, along with too much respect for the fourth commandment to obey parents, have resulted in harsh and violent parenting methods.

Even the sexual misdeeds of the Catholic clergy have been amazingly difficult to confront. Children are treated as the property of parents or parish, and too much goes on behind closed doors.

Religious Trauma is a conversation that needs a new voice.
