A Shield for the Innocent – THE COMPLICITY OF THE CHURCH IN CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE

This week on “A SHIELD FOR THE INNOCENT”, Bidemi Nelson will be talking church as she interviews Tim Lennon from the San Francisco branch of the SURVIVAL NETWORK OF THOSE ABUSED BY PRIEST (SNAP) www.snapnetwork.org. Tim is a childhood survivor of sexual abuse and he will be enlightening us about the role of the church in checking incidents of child sexual abuse, the role of parents in protecting their children and the role of children in protecting themselves as well. The church can be safe for children, after all, that is what it was intended to be in the first place. The time for change is right now. Child sexual exploitation in the church can be stopped for good but let us start by tossing CHURCH COMPLICITY out the window.
