#MeToo Must be #WeToo

Timothy Archer: #MeToo Must Be #WeToo

Beyond society in general, I think the church needs to increase efforts to make church a safe haven and a refuge for those who have been abused. To do such, I think that we need to:

  • Condemn any and all abuse of power in the church.
  • Condemn any and all sexual abuse in the church.
  • Stop the ridicule of safety measures.
  • Reject all questioning of a victim’s complicity in the abuse.

All I can think is this: if we’re failing to help victims of sexual aggression and violence feel welcome in the church, what are we even doing?
