Comments for Child Abuse and How to Understand the Abuser

Some good points...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

I understand only too well how difficult it is to reconcile religious beliefs to the world of abuse and child abusers.

Maurice, you'll note I've edited your post. I did not do so without a great deal of thought beforehand. Even though it may not have been your intent to spur on a debate about abortion, after careful consideration, I decided that I could not allow my site to become a place where my visitors argue whether or not a woman has the right to this decision. I do hope you understand my position on this.

I do hope you will continue to be a valuable contributor to my site, Maurice. Your supportive and encouraging comments to other contributors has been tremendous. Did you know that you will not receive automated notifications for ALL new stories posted on this site? There is a programming glitch that I cannot do anything about that drops a great deal of new posts from the automated system (usually somewhere between half to two-thirds, in fact). If you're interested in commenting on more of the stories (and by no means are you obligated to do so), the best way to stay on top of the new ones is to bookmark my Child Abuse Blog page, and then check it daily. All new postings appear through that page, along with the date of posting.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts about child abuse with my visitors and me.

Darlene Thank you. yes your website is relevant and a great source for people to relate their abuse story, continue your belief in the website.
