    Clergy often contribute to abuse by counseling victims not to leave. Women are blamed for their own abuse. Wives are told they instigate it by not being respectful, submissive and obedient enough to their abusers. A pastor told my mother not to intervene when my father abused us, saying this is how Satan destroys marriages…..he uses children to divide parents from each other. Parents should present a united front. Husbands are accountable to God, not their wives. Wives obey even when they know husbands are wrong, because God might be using this to teach the husband something. This toxic thinking enables abusers, traps victims and guilts victims.
