In Montana, Faith-Based Treatment Programs (With No Oversight) Are Harming Kids

https://friendlyatheist.patheos.com/2019/01/22/in-montana-faith-based-treatment-programs-with-no-oversight-are-harming-kids/

These faith-based ministries don’t always staff their facilities with licensed professionals, they don’t always do background checks, and there are multiple cases of alleged sexual abuse against the kids. Religion is getting in the way of public safety of some of the state’s most vulnerable citizens.

  1. Sen. 2nd class of Montana is of course a republican. They don’t have any knowledge of logics in their arguments, and their wordings are childish and stupid.

    • Hello Miles, yes she is lacking in reasonability and in historical fact. Sadly this is what the republicans want for candidates. Hugs

  2. It scares me how “faith based” entities get a free pass.

    • Hello Lindi. I agree. I have been reading these stories about these faith based programs and bootcamps for years. They always have dead or injured kids. However little can be done in states like Florida which is crazy but full of evangelical Christians. When these people do get caught abusing kids, they close down and reopen with a new name and start again. Hugs

      • I was upset when I read that faith based day care and such are not obligated to be licensed by the state. I don’t know if that is still true,. I haven’t followed up with it. But the idea scares me. So much does happen

  3. OMG don’t get me started. I have a born-again friend … believes in “tough love” … one son is already dead by his own hand … she’s raising his three kids … two of the kids are in this prison-like “rehab” because of smoking marijuana & CIGARETTES … yes, cigarettes … & the third kid is on “house-arrest” because of a “porn addiction” … I kept telling her that kids under stress do things like smoke weed, cigs & jerk off … but NO. Because of her addiction to her stupid store-front church, she’s also addicted to “tough love” … so these three kids are now also lost to the bozos. Oh, did I mention that she’s married to an abusive asshole who cheats on her? OH BUT SHE LOVES HIM. I tried to tell her that the kids see this & won’t respect her & THAT’S the reason they act out … but it’s all about GOD with her.

    & of course, she voted for trump. She says she feels “let down” because of that & of course … she says she voted for him because HER HUSBAND & HER CHURCH TOLD HER TO.

    These christians will be the fucking death of all of us.

    • Hello SAQ. I thank you for sharing that. I cry for those kids, so much harm caused by following these hateful mythologies. I wonder how they would feel about the Aztecs ritual killing of children for their gods? They would be horrified, yet they do things like you described with pride. Your last statement is what they hope they can accomplish, we need to make sure they don’t. Hugs
