CHILD PROTECTION PROJECT
|LEGAL CASE STUDIES|
It's expected that any religious organization will have some predatory
pedophiles join, in order to gain access to children.
What is alarming about these cases is that in nearly every one, the people (usually women) making the allegations are not believed, are often vilified as troublemakers, shunned, and lose their church support system at a time when they need it most.
In a number of these cases Religious officials had notice for ten to
thirty years of the abuse and did nothing to help the children.
Unbelievably, the perpetrator is regularly offered counseling and even financial help by his Church while the victims, often single parent families, fend for themselves.
