Female pastor? I don’t accept this body as a true Christian Church.
That being said I hope the lot of them go to jail.
In a group of 17,000 there are bound to be creeps, they should have called the police the minute they found out.
The person accused, needs to be removed immediately until an investigation is conducted by the church and authorities.
Sure pray about, no question.
The people who did not report the crime, should be arrested as well for being complete in the rape.
As I’ve said many times, the cover-up is often worse than the actual abuse or rape.
Hopefully someone goes to prison...
They’re praying for the individual who preyed on their victims... and the congregation is confused how to deal with it.
They should arrest the parents for not calling the police if they knew about the crime. You don’t call the raping organization and let them handle the crime. You call the police.
I think I’m with everyone else here, just report it to the police. This nonsense people pull about internal “procedures” or investigations doesn’t make sense. It’s the police department’s job to do investigations, not churches. They just aren’t equipped to handle that.
If only church employees were allowed to marry this sort of thing would never happen...
