#TraumaTheory Chapter 64

People that gaslight use the tools of abusers, dictators, narcissists, and cult leaders or just an above average narcissistic Christian




.

Gaslighting is a tactic of behavior in which a person or entity, in order to gain more power, makes a victim question their reality

They tell you blatant lies.

They deny they ever said something, even though you have proof.

They use what is near and dear to you as ammunition.

They wear you down over time.

Their actions do not match their words.

They throw in positive reinforcement to confuse you.

They know confusion weakens people.

They project.

They try to align people against you.

They tell you or others that you are crazy.

They tell you everyone else is a liar.

THE FACTS:

A child in an emotionally & mentally healthy family and community has no need for the presence of a God no matter the offered rewards, no matter the sophistry and deception of claimed and real threats

No Australian Christian religion aspires to the basic principle of providing Human Rights to Children. The horror of it is that children in Australia by definition are secondary and the property of the religion of their parents and their political representatives.
