Bad Pastors

Full Product Description

Is there something about religious organizations that fosters misbehaviour? This study presents a range of perspectives and data on pastoral abuse, investigating sexual misconduct, financial improprieties, and political and personal abuse of authority. Rather than focusing on individuals who misbehave, the volume investigates whether the foundation for clergy malfeasance is inherent in religious organizations themselves, stemming from hierarchies of power in which trusted leaders have the ability to define reality, control behaviour, and even offer or withhold the promise of immortality. Arguing that such phenomena arise out of organizational structures, the contributors do not focus on one particular religion, but rather treat these incidents from an interfaith perspective.

Bad Pastors by Anson Shupe was published by New York University Press in August 2000. The ISBN for Bad Pastors is 9780814781470.
