The Abusive Pastor

"The Abusive Pastor" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward

Actually, I think it's circular. 

We all have the capacity to be abusive.

Some more than others.

But I also believe that some environments can bring out the worst in us.

I also believe that power can corrupt.

And I also believe that certain systems are inherently perfect cultures for abuse to occur. 

Such as the church.

Why the church?

Because on the one hand there are people in power and on the other hand there are those who impart it and often blindly submit to it, all wrapped up in God's will.
