That is quite a list, and it must have taken a lot of work to put that together. Here are a couple of others that you may not have heard of:

Below link may be ***Triggering***. Content: Legal Documents.

Victims of Missionary School Seek Healing in New Film: This aired in Ohio back in May.

Some of my own abuse was at the hands of several people that wouldn't have been in that position unless they had been trusted members of my parent's fringe cult church. And the fact that their religion was a "faith-healing" church meant that my abuse wasn't brought to the attention of the medical community either.

I would be glad to discuss the religious implications of my abuse by PM.

Keep up the good work,

I am new here. I was impressed by what you said. We stay here we die here. Part of me just wants to die here. My experience was very different from yours, but I feel it is abuse. I feel that with my fault because I am an adult who is very immature. I just want to die. I think I deserve to die.
