Pray and report any real cases of abuse.
Teach kids to report any sexual acts committed by anyone.
Trust the good clergy, be skeptical of the lukewarm, and avoid the bad.
I’ve always been a little baffled that it happens because one of the first things I remember my dad teaching me was to “obey your elders and superiors, and all authority, in all things, unless they tell you do something like take off your clothes or touch them in certain places. In that case tell me immediately.”
So I’m surprised and saddened that others don’t.
But then I also understand it’s a often a long process where they slowly ease someone into it.
I guess that just comes down to parents creating enough trust with their children that their children regularly talk about their interactions.
I also admit I have a much better relationship with my dad than many people did growing up.
