I hope everyone who attends these upcoming religious events have a "safe" time.

I'm not attending. Be that as it is, I am now free to not to attend religious events.

That wasn't always the case having been sexually abused as a kid in churches where its heirarchy facilitated and covered-up sex crimes against kids.

The heirarchy did not tell parishioners/parents that they were hiring, hiding and harboring admitted, known and credibly accused child molesters to work in their churches as clergy/employees/volunteers.

I hope that doesn't happen to anyone else.

And I'd like to thank my little sister for writing this for me and visiting my gravesite today.

Why? Because she knows I died from the effects of the abuse and cover-ups.

I know that she doesn't want anyone else to be harmed like I was by trusted religious leaders.

My little sister and countless other victims have a good reason to live by reaching out, getting help, exposing abusers, and reporting the "crimes" to police, NOT church officials.

Report and place the guilt, shame and blame where it belongs. Protect others.

And my little sister, who was also sexually abused by clergy, will not be attending any religious events in my remembrance and honor by her choice.

I'm glad that today she is free to choose not to attend church. Obviously, that also was not the case for her growing up in a deceitful church.

That's light, not darkness.

Carrie, I am sorry for the pain and hurt you are carrying in your heart. Though you have decided to distance yourself from organized religion please do not distance yourself from the Lord and Savior of your life, Jesus Christ. Don't be angry at Him because of what man has done to you but put your trust in Him to heal your heart and show you His indescribable love for You. Trust me, He is the answer to what you are searching for, relief from this pain and hurt. I am praying for you and I know the Lord is hearing my prayer for you and longing to heal your heart.

To: "Truly sorry for your pain"

There is something to said for Carrie's sister casting pearls before swine.

It exposing the dogs, swine and vultures who continuously attack and attempt to shove their god down clergy abuse victims throats no matter if they are dead or alive or share your beliefs.

Report "sex crimes" to police, NOT church officials, to protect others from suffering the toxic effects of the church officials lies and deceit as I think "Truly sorry for you pain" is infected with the "indescribable god love" that she claims to possess.

Those are the euphimisms and attitudes and behavior of people unable to discern vanity from wisdom, instruction, and understanding. Try pulling those pearls out of your nose.

You might want to see a professional doctor for that procedure and not just pray about or seek help from your pastor. I think you may have a case of the religious theft swine flu.

All the best for your recovery. Actions speak louder than words. Evil triumphs when people stay silent and do nothing or choose to attack victims of sex crimes in various ways.

It's obvious that your comments were written to rub salt into the wounds of dead sex crime victims and their surviving family members.

Your comments only expose a serious cancer that has spread throughout the so called righteous/saved "body of christ" which I guess you would claim to belong be a member of.

Survivors/Victims of abuse, your voices and actions to expose your abusers and those who enable/cover-up horrific crimes as well as those who revictimized you are not in vain no matter what anyone says.
