Okay, this is honestly kind of infuriating. Tim Keller is referencing Rachel Denhollander, who has spoken on how she was ostracized from her church for speaking out on abuse coverups by Sovereign Grace Ministries/CJ Mahaney.

Guess who's connected to that? Keller.
Keller in fact signed on an open letter defending Mahaney's quiet exit from The Gospel Coalition in the midst of the scandal around his church, which has been conveniently scrubbed of his name with no apology since it was published.

Denhollander has talked about the immense personal cost her advocacy for the victims of CJ Mahaney's abusive ministries. Meanwhile, I can't find anywhere where Tim Keller had said a single thing about Mahaney since the scandal.

Tim Keller wants to be seen as an authority on how to pursue justice despite having done jack shit to do so with one of his former peers and the catastrophically abusive ministry Keller and his friends and The Gospel Coalition had a part in boosting to fame.

My mom has been doing a deep dive into videos on fundamentalism and abuse, and she just... sort of apologized for my upbringing? "...sorry if we did anything that hurt you..."

I'm not sure how to process it. I feel complicated emotions, and I don't entirely feel okay about it.
Like, I get that it's difficult for both of my parents to process all this deconstruction, but... their experience was different than mine (and my siblings'). Their choices had much more drastic consequences on the children they raised in this controlling system/culture.
One thing I feel uncomfortable with is that I'm going to feel pressured to "manage" how THEY feel and make sure THEY feel comfortable in this. When really, I am not okay with a lot of what they did, and I really don't want to center them in this.
