Survivors of spiritual abuse are making a push today to call attention to the outrageous tactics employed by pastors and other religious leaders to silence their victims – specifically, we’re calling attention to Calvary Chapel pastor Bob Grenier’s lawsuit against his adult stepson, Alex Grenier who came forward to report that he was physically abused by Bob Grenier after Bob married Alex’s mother. Another brother alleged that he was sexually molested by Bob.
Cindy Kunsman of Under Much Grace has a post calling attention to the #WhoWouldJesusSue campaign. The website #WhoWouldJesusSue has details including links to news stories about the lawsuit as well as specific steps to follow for those with Twitter and Facebook accounts to call out specific leaders and ministries involved in cover ups of spiritual abuse.
Consider participating in this social media blitz today by tweeting about spiritual abuse using the hashtag #WhoWouldJesusSue. Follow #WhoWouldJesusSue on Twitter and repost the links on Facebook. If you only have a few minutes, you can help raise awareness by simply posting the following on Facebook or Twitter:
