The Realist Speaks: 5 Reasons the BJU Scandal Will Go Away

Tamara explains how we can each make a difference when organizations (effectively) attempt to silence justice … and why it is difficult to be the one who fights back.

If this is your first glimpse of the topic, let me briefly explain the context.

BJU and various other organizations (this post specifically addresses Christian groups) have been applying authority in ways that have caused various forms of abuse to be ignored or overlooked.

To shelter the “higher purpose” of these organizations, the victims are often further victimized by being accused of lying or asking for it, or getting kicked out for telling what happened. And the most that happens to the abusers is that they are quietly asked to leave.

The abused are linking up in various ways, attempting help each other and stop the organizational blindness in order to protect those who are still being abused. They are also hoping to receive justice and get the truth out so people will be more aware of the dangers.

GRACE is an organization that works with these groups, helping to investigate.

This article explains why it’s difficult to hold organizations accountable when the culture surrounding them wants to turn a blind eye to the problem.
