About Religious Sexual Abuse

Sexual abuse occurs when there is undesired sexual behavior by one person upon another, this is also referred to as molestation. It often happens by taking advantage or using force on another. When force is of short duration or immediate, or infrequent it is called sexual assault.

In recent years there have been many allegations of sexual abuse by leaders of religious organizations. Religious leaders have been convicted on multiple counts of child abuse, rape, sexual abuse, inappropriate sexual conduct and more. More than 18,000 survivors have come forward with their stories of sexual abuse at the hands of US Catholic Church clergy alone. Child abuse and molestation can happen anywhere - churches, summer camps, day care facilities, schools, and other places where predators are likely to gain access to children.


Children who are physically or sexually abused often show signs that should be taken seriously. Unfortunately, when children exhibit signs that something isn't right, it's often brushed off by parents, legal guardians, and other adults who should be alarmed.


Signs of clergy abuse can manifest in numerous ways. Children are typically honest about how they feel. If they're experiencing physical pain, or are upset about something, they will likely express it in some way. Sadly, child predators also impose their will on children who don't have the ability to communicate. In addition, some predators convince children that abusive behavior is normal, making it less likely that children will speak up. However, there are many indisputable signs that may indicate that abuse has occurred. They include, but are not limited to:
  • Disrupted sleep and frequent nightmares
  • May seem withdrawn or distant
  • Depression, fear, anxiety, and mood swings
  • Loss of appetite or other changes in eating habits
  • Cuts, bruises, abrasions, skin discoloration, and burns
  • Pain, bleeding, or unusual discharge from the genitals
  • Sudden bed wetting
  • Running away from home
  • Drug or alcohol addiction
  • Self-injury
