I felt like my mind and my body were never my own. I was property of the church. My mind, body, identity, worthiness, and authority were taken from me through coercion, threats, extreme social pressure, and ritualistic abuse. It’s been so damaging to me. I’m still trying to piece myself back together. It’s heartbreaking to feel this way from what was supposed to be the only true church and way to connect with God. This has distorted and negatively impacted my view of myself and of God. There should be no question that sexual questions to kids and youth is inappropriate, especially from people that have zero expertise in that area and awareness on potential damaging consequences. I hope they change this for future children, so they don’t have to suffer and hate themselves and hate God their entire life.
