Mormon/LDS Church Sexual Abuse

The Mormon Church, or the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, like many other religious groups, has suffered from sexual abuse within its ranks. The Mormon Church is historically an insular religious community. Unfortunately, the Mormon Church often handles abuse allegations the wrong way, by discouraging victims from reporting abuse, handling abuse allegations internally, and failing to notify authorities.

Over the years, the Mormon Church has been forced into substantial settlements due to its cover-ups of abuse within the Church. Also, local Mormon Churches do not always adhere to national standards regarding protecting children from abuse, or for the reporting of abuse to authorities. If a Mormon Church fails children, it may be liable for sexual abuse under the Church's watch.
