A Matter of Truth

Today someone brought to my attention the organization "A Matter of Truth" and I felt compelled to re-post their link here: http://www.amatteroftruth.org

In their own words:

A Matter Of Truth is the first, national, survivor-driven organization committed to obtaining federal intervention and assistance in unveiling the truth about religious personnel and their institutions who are responsible for the sexual abuse of children and vulnerable adults.

By using their online form you can petition for a congressional hearing if you like.

Of course, I applaud their advocacy work in general. I furthermore appreciate that their focus is not the Catholic Church but ALL religious institutions. After all, this is not a problem which occurs only in one denomination. This is an important point of our in-the-works documentary "All God's Children" which tells of a Protestant Church and mission sending organization and the children who were abused at its boarding school.
