Some like to say "out with the old and in with the new", but is that what our Messiah teaches?

People of faith are not just speaking up in the #MeToo era, but actually combating abuse and seeking accountability within their spiritual communities.
Serene Jones, president of Union Theological Seminary, says sexual and domestic abuse has long been an institutional problem for churches. So how do we root out that behavior in our religious communities?
Experts working with faith communities in crisis say holding an abuser accountable, both to validate the experience of the victim and to prevent further abuse, is an essential part of the healing process.
Religious institutions aren't alone in applying the lessons from #MeToo into their ministry; so, too, are academic researchers in the study of religion.
Allegations of abuse and #MeToo experiences have impacted communities in many faiths, including the Pagan, Buddhist and Christian traditions.
