Seven years ago, during a church service, I was on the receiving end of a public confession from a close male friend who admitted to having fantasies about molesting and raping me.— Jamie Lee Finch (@jamieleefinch) November 21, 2017
He was immediately praised for his bravery and holiness.
I was still in the room. #churchtoo https://t.co/Dk6ub9jmVt
Following the #churchtoo hash with interest. Many #metoo stories at the hands of the church. And me? I was made to sign a purity contract at age 11. And witnessed a man confess from the pulpit having sex w/a child. Praised for his bravery. No further action.— Elizabeth Halford (@bettyhalford) November 21, 2017
At a friend’s youth group, in response to a talk on purity and modesty, l went with tears in my eyes to a female volunteer. l shared that l had been raped and felt shame about not being pure. She responded by asking if l had repented of my role in what happened. #churchtoo— Shannon Dingle (@ShannonDingle) November 21, 2017
