Most victims of domestic violence and sexual assault that I spoke to for this series in the Seventh-day Adventist Church are aware by their own experience of how ill-equipped the Church is to deal with their trauma.

The South Conference continued the search for the Whistleblower yesterday. The morning worship reflection text was based on the story of hunting for the person who brought “great evil into the camp” (1 Chron. 2:7).
This conversation occurred during the Fall of 2020. It is revelatory for how difficult it was for this victim of spousal abuse to be heard or taken seriously by this President. Pastor Gruijicić agreed that Mr. Quispe had abused Anita during the conversation, yet he questioned why Anita tried to seek help and precisely why […]
Hrišćanska adventistička crkva sedmog dana čini odmazdu nad žrtvom zlostavljanja i njenom porodicom Ovo je priča od ženi koja je govorila o seksualnom, emocionalnom i duhovnom zlostavljanju od strane svog sada bivšeg muža. Njena mesna crkva, Oblast i Unija nisu poverovale u njenu priču. Danas Hrišćanska adventistička crkva sedmog dana i dalje čini odmazdu nad […]
Adrijanova beleška: Intelligent Adventist objavljuje kompletan prevod audio zapisa načinjenog od strane uzbunjivača radi dodatnog konteksta našim čitaocima. U članku u kojim smo objavili uzbunjivačev transkript rekli smo da je to „reč za reč“ prevod. To nije bila precizna karakterizacija. To je bio prepis „istaknutih“ delova razgovora koji se dogodio u Nišu, 2. Marta. Propovednik […]

In the article in which we published the whistleblower transcript we said the audio was a “word for word” translation. That was not an accurate characterization. It was a transcription of the “highlights” […]

A whistleblower recorded the President of the South-East European Union Conference talking openly and honestly about how to get a conference president to “withdraw himself” from his position.
This is a story about a woman who spoke out about her sexual, emotional, and spiritual abuse by her now ex-husband. Her local Church, the Conference, and the Union didn’t believe her story. Today, the Seventh-day Adventist Church is still retaliating against her and her family. Her father expects to be fired from his position […]
