File:INSTANCES OF CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE ALLEGEDLY PERPETRATED BY MEMBERS OF THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS-2017-06.pdf
Recently, MormonLeaks™ was provided with an aggregated list of alleged instances of sexual abuse of minors perpetrated by leaders and members of the Mormon Church (see below document description). As the information was evaluated by our MormonLeaks™ team, it became apparent this information was not technically a “leak” but was a collection of alleged instances of sexual abuse gleaned from many different sources (some of which have been previously reported by the media).
MormonLeaks™ was founded on the belief that increased transparency within the Mormon Church will result in fewer untruths, less corruption, and less abuse. While the mass majority of Church leaders are clearly not sexual predators, because of the taboo nature of abuse—and because of non-disclosure agreements that are often part of abuse-settlement agreements—the exact prevalence of sexual abuse by leaders and members of the Mormon Church is difficult to measure. By promoting this document, we hope to expand public commentary and constructive criticism about the past and ongoing challenges of sexual abuse within the Mormon Church.
The following is a statement from the individual who prepared the document:
Although this document is very disturbing, there is nothing more upsetting and tragic than coping with the aftermath of abuse in someone you love. My hope is that this document will raise awareness so that your children will be better protected.
To add an instance of sexual abuse by leaders or members of the Mormon Church to this document, please email me at: LDSLivingDocument@gmail.com .
This document was first released to the public by MormonLeaks™ on August 15, 2017.
