Olaf @BhaaratFirst🔁Looking at the stories I suspect they are pumping in billions of $ into India coz we have bigger population to exploit, our courts are too slow and our police are too lenient towards the western predators.. - easy prey
DQ @CampaignCue🔁Christians, scroll through the hashtag. Weep with your brothers and sisters who have been hurt in what *should* be the safest place on earth. Then, do better and demand better.
제파니 @inahdrewyouin🔁My uncle, who is the pastor of our church, made me sit in his office during mid-week service because I was wearing s twitter.com horts that could give the men the “wrong idea.” I was 11 and hadn’t even hit puberty yet.
Sunshines blog @Miss_Chinney🔁Follow the hashtag to hear the firsthand stories of women who have been horribly mistreated by men in church settings. It's important, brave, & vulnerable.

Sunshines blog @Miss_Chinney🔁: when I was told that I shouldn't have gone over to his house by myself. Not that they were sorry. Not that his role would be changed. Just that I shouldn't have gone over there alone (wearing a dress) because it caused him to be "overcome by lust"
lynnlos @lynnmcloud🔁Thank you for sharing the hashtag and featuring some of my thoughts. Props to for starting this convo exposing assault & abuse in Evangelicalism, which ties into 's movement.
Olaf @BhaaratFirst🔁None of the stories surprise me in the least. Not when you let grown men blame 12 year olds in short shorts for their “lust”
Sunshines blog @Miss_Chinney🔁A trend I am noticing with : abusers are often charismatic, adored by a community, and in leadership positions. This is what keeps folks silent. It’s kept me silent too.
Michael Cowtan @MichaelCowtan🔁#ChurchToo is sickening, but not surprising twitter.com
Please read thread based on MSM stories. Please. Moving plight of kids. Foreign funded Org.
SlimShady @watsUrName_🔁While going through the stories, one realises how the Church has institutionalized this abomination through multi-layered cover-ups with the connivance of media, lawyers and those in power, whether in a society or in the administration.
Deborah @deborahtofte🔁There's a hashtag on Twitter right now called where people are sharing their stories of sexual harassment and abuse in religious (primarily Christian) settings.
It's a sobering, powerful, disturbing read.
Many thanks to the brave people sharing their stories.

Caroline @skippy_c🔁Let's hope forces the Catholic church to stop sheltering paedophiles and let them face courts in the countries they twitter.com committed offences in.
Olaf @BhaaratFirst🔁The stories now surfacing are important. As with the sex abuse crisis in the Catholic Church, stories of abuse and harassment must be aired for the sake of victims and survivors, as well as institutions. "There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed" (Lk 8:17).
Pulse of Music @PulseofMusic🔁#ChurchToo hashtag blows up social media to expose sexual abuse in religious communities fb.me
Adweya @kwoba_🔁So if your car breaks down dump it and get a new one? No. Fix it. Fix the church. Rid it of the predators and bring twitter.com them to book. Help victims and survivors to heal and don’t belittle their experiences
norman miller @normanmiller7🔁Thank you, , for highlighting and noting its connection to . FYI, I started after Charlottesville. It has a broader scope and is very much alive as a hashtag for exposing, protesting the Christian Right’s rot:

Sushmita Shankar @SushShankar🔁Reading stories- those sexually assaulted in churches, by men in power- men the church protected. Parents:don’t set foot into church b/f learning how they handle reported assault.No more blinders, no more deference.The church is NOT God.
Sushmita Shankar @SushShankar🔁Following the hash with interest. Many stories at the hands of the church. And me? I was made to sign a purity contract at age 11. And witnessed a man confess from the pulpit having sex w/a child. Praised for his bravery. No further action.
Rev. Peter Preble @frpeterpreble🔁The hashtag is needed. It’s also a reminder that the pseudo-celebrity culture of Christian publishing and conferences too often protects bad behavior.

I am a white man. I am privileged. I may well have been part of the problem without ever knowing or intending to be. And I am sorry.
What can I and others like me do today which will help bring real change? How can we do better?
your favorite auntie @creaslean🔁I was just thinking about how toxic the Catholic and Christian Churches and religious culture in general can be, and twitter.com then I see this dialogue happening. Wow. The gendered oppression and abuse that happens under the guise of salvation is truly a plague.

👑 Babazani Bo! 👅 @KamogeloM_🔁 A teacher and a esteemed member of the baptist church in grew up in was caught with a student. 4th grade. Others came forward. The church protected him. My best friend was one of his victims. She committed suicide in HS.
🇷ohit jain @RohitJain700🔁#churchtoo It only tells that pastors have not experienced life in its richest dimension & they are using a spare part to fill the void.
Bill D @bosoxbill🔁 horrified. If you’re in a church situation only because nobody has told you God isn’t real, I’m happy to be the guy. twitter.com Humans made God, not vice/versa. Religions, at best, are communities of good people who support great work (Sistine chapels, drug/alcohol recovery, etc)
Bulma @fatgalsarah🔁 : here’s an issue that I feel passionate about.

Bulma @fatgalsarah🔁. I was about 13 or 14 and at church Summer camp. The minister leading the camp was harassing one teenager girl from his church and she asked us all to protect her. One day he chased her into the girl's bathroom where girls were showering and changing. A group of 1/
