Sexual abuse in the secretive Truth Church | 60 Minutes Australia

For the past 12 months, 60 MINUTES has been investigating a highly mysterious church called The Truth. It operates in regional areas of Australia and enforces bizarrely strict rules for its 10,000 members. It bans television, music and dancing. No parishioners can wear jewellery; females must always be dressed in long skirts and are forbidden from cutting their hair. But that’s by no means the worst of it. On Sunday, 60 MINUTES will reveal shocking and shameful secrets the church doesn’t want anyone to know about. They include allegations from former worshippers of being subjected to unspeakable sexual attacks by fellow members of the church, which when brought to the attention of the organisation’s hierarchy were largely ignored. As Allison Langdon discovers, the truth about The Truth is highly disturbing and demands a formal inquiry by police and welfare authorities.
