Re: Social Winnowing
And furthermore . . .
There is a subset of Group 2: people who know something bad is going on in leadership but who think that they must "Stay and fight it", which usually means getting labelled as "Troublemakers" by the leaders who are covering up. This kind of thing happens again and again in corrupt organizations, so don't think that a one-man or a one-woman campaign against the pastor, president, or other authority figure will go well for you. If you must go through with it be prepared for a lot of grief unless you really know what you are doing.
Believe me, I have seen this happen in Christian Churches; people that I know were sent threatening letters, they were slandered in "secret meetings", etc., etc., etc.
