1644: Mormon Church Discouraging Sex Abuse Victims from Reporting – Survivor Stories
August 20, 2022
TRIGGER WARNING: Mentions of Sexual Assault, Rape, Child Abuse
In light of the recent Associated Press article about the Mormon church abuse hotline, we decided to ask our podcast listeners if any of them had ever been discouraged by Mormon leadership from reporting abuse to the police. Hundreds of listeners responded with concrete, and heart-wrenching examples. In Friday’s episode, John and Jenn will be reading many of the accounts (scrubbed of identifying information), so as to highlight the longstanding and ongoing problem of abuse cases NOT being reported to police within the Mormon church.
