desertmuscl saidAsk Kivel if he recalls any recent be-headings by Christians.
I will assume 'christians' are the emotional abusers while the 'islamics' are the physical abusers
Emotional abuse is worse than Physical abusehttp://www.careerride.com/view.aspx?id=26562
When one starts seeking help for abuse to get rid of the physiological trauma as a result of abuse in early stages of life, they are usually screened to detect which types of abuse they were subjected to and which ones have had the most disastrous effect on their lives. Abuse, both emotional and physical leaves marks of trauma that haunts the person years after the abuse ends.
When these people are asked to differentiate between the two to find out which has left the worse of effect and needs treatment first, they differ in opinion mostly. Some are of the opinion that physical abuse traumatized their lives the most, while others are more haunted by the reminiscences of emotional abuse they had faced any time in their lives.
Domestic violence, for instance, can easily be fought against if women try to seek help from police and NGOs that are more than willing to help victimized women. But a woman undergoing emotional abuse would not be able to do the same for the fear of being left when asked for witnesses and evidences.
