I have been taking some abuse lately about exposing the “sins” of others. Some people, no, many people think that it is wrong to speak about past abuse or to expose the names of abusers or to “dwell on” bad things that are supposedly in the past. Among Jewish people, there is even a mis-used and often twisted idea of lashon hora, which means that gossiping about a person’s bad deeds serves no purpose except to make the tattletale feel extra special or extra righteous. In Jewish circles, it is forbidden to talk of someone’s sins even if they are true.
