An opinion piece "Heroes never escape unscathed: Bringing toxic behaviour to light" has been published this week in Eternity News. This article explores the tensions involved in identifying and responding to destructive behaviour, particularly in contexts of leadership. It also considers the particular vulnerability of religious contexts for such abuse, raising questions for religious praxis and language. It encourages realism by recognising that there are always costs involved for those who shed light on misbehaviour and abuse, suggesting that what is sought is self-awareness in those who have injured others.
