Religion (specially the Christian brand) has been afforded right to exist within an incestuous system that’s always been ripe for abuse. In that sense i’d describe as being almost like a type of old boys club
And so if anyone is wondering why it is, that no matter how much evidence of harm and sex abuses and what not are being exposed, in regard to lives ruin by cults.
There is still no public outcry. Still no unified movement in regard to finally putting a stop to it.
Its because religion still exist like its the last bastion of the old boys club mentality.
While humanity has already had a united movement against racism,sexism and even just lately has even been very united again too in regard to finally attending to issues of sex abuse (long overdue for attention) within the film industry that had had to do with people formally held in high regard (For instance consider prominent film producer Harvey Weinstein)
But then when it come to religion. And issues of sex abuses that keep on being exposed.Then we don’t hear any real public outcry. We do not hear any united front of voices (worldwide)demanding for prompt action
So whys that then ?
It’s because religion is been allowed to be wrapped up in cotton wool . Religion is looked upon as if it’s this “old boys club” that should still be allowed to remain “untouchable” (above the law.“Fly under the radar”)
When the sex scandal with Harvey Weinstein hit the media.Very quickly there was a public outcry. A united voice worldwide, demanding that the issue would be attended to quickly. Many of the voices that were being heard demanding that the issues would receive prompt attention , had came from within the film industry itself
That’s right. The film industry itself had the decency to promptly also get actively involved themselves as well too (to help prove that they were actually wanting to actively sort the abhorrent situation out)
After all that is the decent thing to do. The moral thing to do
All the time that these sex abuse issues are constantly being exposed within religion (places that are allowed to be ripe for such abuse to be able occur unnoticed ). Within a large number of religious groups as well too.
Do we hear any united voice coming from within religion? . Doing the decent thing?. The moral thing to do?. Making demand that these issues would start to receive prompt attention?
No we don’t
Where is the united voice coming from within religious circles themselves ? .Being helpful by asking for a general inquiry ? (like what had happened within the film industry,being that it’s also the most decent moral thing to do)
There is fucking none !!!
Not even a murmur !!!
Meanwhile there’s this huge “swooning” throng of all these believers worldwide that will constantly all gather in church together religiously. Because by doing so it also helps themselves to all feel so morally superior than any other folk who wont be going to church
If i ever went to any of these organized church. I think i’d automatically feel sick . For i’d know that im gathered among a large throng of plastic-people that are expert frauds
The worst part about all this situation is that most of these people also wont ever allow themselves to admit to it either (like the brethren who are also acting the same way). Because to need to admit to it, would then also burst their morally superior religious-bubble
The shame of that (thought) is too much to bear
Far easier to turn a blind to the ongoing exposure of sex abuses .Convince themselves that they never had quite-known “exactly” how prevalent it had been allowed to become
The religious folk (Exclusive Brethren or other type) need to try an maintain this morally superior “front” (IE : facade, deceptive outward appearance)
So therefore they also cannot afford to admit to these problem that remain rampant within their swooning throng of practicing ass-lickers for Jesus club
