Child abuse – which has dominated the headlines over the past year as a result of the Savile inquiry and other high-profile child-cruelty cases, and which is often presented as one of the country's most intractable problems – could be reduced by 70% by the year 2030, delegates to a Guardian debate were told. A 1999 study shows that Christian fundamentalist parents hinder their children's efforts to go to college if those children do not subscribe to fundamentalist beliefs. High-profile cases such as those of child sexual abuse in the Catholic Church and “faith healing” medical neglect child deaths in fundamentalist congregations have made the public aware of such problems.

Even if you can’t see the whole picture, others may have noticed signs as well, and a pattern can help identify child abuse that might have otherwise been overlooked. Consequently, when you read some of the horrific accounts, you realize the sad but rarely disclosed truth that nearly every religious group has had an encounter with child abuse and its step cousin, collusion. The book explores the `rod of correction' as used by proponents like Michael Pearl; the inbreeding of the Amish which has brought back diseases not seen since the 19th Century; ritual abuse which, on the surface, might seem misleading since most people associate ritual abuse with suburban satanists.

Those on the outside of religion don't understand the resolve and passion of those inside religions. If you are not getting enough rest and support or you're feeling overwhelmed, you are much more likely to succumb to anger.

The local children's services or the Citizen's Advice Bureau can advise about what help is available. These exemptions largely came about, Heimlich says, through the lobbying of the Christian Science Church, whose members shun conventional medicine in favour of prayer.We learn of women whose babies died in childbirth yet are trapped in the womb for days because no one has taken them to the hospital. For as long as humans have worshipped deities, we have been abusing and neglecting children in the name of faith.

If you have a history of child abuse, having your own children can trigger strong memories and feelings that you may have repressed. But by learning to recognize the signs of a problem, you can make a huge difference in a child’s life. Neglect—a very common type of child abuse—is a pattern of failing to provide for a child's basic needs, which include adequate food, clothing, hygiene, or supervision.

Even God the Father's sacrifice of his Son leads to a familiar quote used by abusers, "God sacrificed his son for us, who are we to balk if he asks to sacrifice ours? And in a passage that makes “Tiger Mom” parenting look positively tame, Deuteronomy recommends that disobedient and drunken youngsters be taken before the city elders and stoned to death.
