Newspaper from the left green spectrum criticizes media presentation on Church sexual abuse.
Hamburg (kath.net) "In the discussion about sexualised violence, the focus is on the Catholic Church - how the Protestants deal with their cases of abuse, is little present in the media." That was criticized by “taz,” a national newspaper from the left green spectrum. "114,000 people are affected by sexual abuse by Catholic priests in Germany. This is what a recent study by the University of Ulm says. The surprising thing: just as many have been sexually abused by members of the Protestant church,” so the presentation by “taz.”
Offering an overview of the situation in the (Protestant regional church) "North Church,” the article cites Anselm Kohn, abuse victim and founder of an anti-abuse initiative, "The Church is perpetrator and criminal organization but wants to be enlightener, pastoral counselor and judge."
The churches need to allow external review, the report concludes.
