This site is for stories of Religious Abuse Survivors of religious sects across America and the World. Many fundamentalist and authoritarian sects are very abusive toward women and children. There is a lot of filth that lies hidden under their “mantle of righteousness” they project to the populace.  It is our desire that exposure of the atrocities and abuses will bring awareness to the public and enable victims of religious abuse to finally have a voice; something they have never had because the “church” and/or its religious leaders silenced them. It is also our desire that the governing authorities will take notice of these atrocities that the Church is hiding and enact legislation that will protect women and children in an abusive church environment.

These stories of abuse are meant to encourage and strengthen religious abuse survivors by showing them that they are not alone. There are others out there that have suffered at the hands of abusive religious sects.  If you would like to have your story of religious abuse on this site to help encourage others as well, simply email your story to the admin email at the bottom right of this page.  If you are an author, have a website or blog, we welcome the opportunity to promote these things in your story through links.

All articles and stories contained on this site are the sole properties of their authors. They may not be copied or reproduced without express permission of their authors. Religion’s Cell is only a platform for these victims to have the voice they have never had. No monetary compensation is given or earned by Religion’s Cell on behalf of these victim stories. All articles written by the admin of this site are to help victims in overcoming the religious brainwashing from their cult experience. They will also help to untwist the corrupted theological doctrines and dogmas that have been taught by mainstream religion that foster abuse toward women and children.

Please note that the stories posted are the personal, unverified accounts of each person and reflect the views of the authors. These stories are the sole property of the authors and not of this blog or its owner(s). Because an experience is included here, it is not meant as an endorsement from me, nor is it necessarily indicative of my views. Many different experiences are shared on the blog to show the extent and aftermath of spiritual, emotional, physical and sexual abuse as well as un-Biblical teachings. Due to the various stages of healing of those writing, it is important to realize that abusive, thoughtless, and inconsiderate comments can trigger these victims thus causing them even more emotional abuse.  It can also lead to physical harm of the victim telling his/her story if they are not able to cope with the comments posted.  Please be mindful of this as you leave your comments.

Comments deemed abusive or hurtful to the victim will be deleted for the sake of the victims telling their individual stories.  This site is not a place for attacking victims or arguing with them because you disagree with them. This is a place of safety for victims of abuse where their voices can be heard without being attacked by those that support their abusers and religious institutions.  The attitude of “victim blaming” against victims of abuse has been one that countless victims have had to deal with most of their lives from those who should have supported them. It will not be tolerated here.  This attitude of victim blaming has only silenced the many victims of sexual exploitation and abuse and has allowed sexual predators to move on to other victims! It is time for them to have a place where they can be safe from such Secondary Emotional Abuse and Trauma. The emotional well-being of these victims will always trump your opinion. So, with that in mind, I urge you to take your vitriol, hatred, “laced words,” and attacking spirit, elsewhere, they will not be tolerated here. This is a place of support – something these victims have never had before.

Some may even mention sinful actions on their part or on the part of the perpetrators and this site certainly does not endorse or condone such. Contributors are simply  encouraged to share what they have experienced in their former churches.
