Religion is a greater cover up for incest than any other cloak I’ve seen. Many abusers hide their sin in churches and with the spirit of a manmade religion. Bibles in the front of the house, rape and molestation in the back hidden corners.
When is someone going to stand up and expose these hypocrites for what they are?
Jesus sure did! In the book of Matthew He said, “For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.”
When my father was dying, I said to him, “Dad, I’ll never see you again.” He looked up at me and said, “You’ll see me again,” referring to being in heaven in the afterlife. Did he believe that after all his child rapes and murdering an innocent woman he was cleansed of his sin without asking anyone to forgive him? It just doesn’t work that way.
A changed person would feel remorse for their actions. They would search out those they injured. Hypocrites, however, do no such thing!
My brother raped me, has never asked for my forgiveness, but a few years ago he produced a Christian movie!
I’ve tried time and time again to reconcile with my family. For years I plagued my life with efforts to win their love and try to warn them that they needed to turn from their abusive ways. They just wouldn’t have it. I don’t think they hate me, they just want me to shut the fuck up!
If your abuser spouts religious words and holds on to a form of godliness, but has never asked for your forgiveness, you can be certain they are liars and are not changed people. Most likely, they will even call you a liar and mock you if you bring their abuse forward and speak about it.
They use religion as a means to silence their victims. This great cover up is a hoax. These men and woman will be held accountable because you don’t lie to God.

Honestly, things don’t work that way. Your dad didn’t ask for forgiveness, I don’t want to judge because we don’t know what will happen on judgement day BUT, your brother has a chance now. He needs to iron it out and cleanse his heart from it. The deed has been done and no one can change that, he has to amend his ways with God and with you.
My heart and prayers go to you, ‘granny’. You are strong. You are a fighter. You are a survivor. I appreciate the courage you’ve mustered to share your stories with us. May God be your comforter.
Happy new year to you!
Yes, indeed, “May God be my comforter!” Thank you. I appreciate your supportive comment. Happy New Year to you!
