What they always do

I report on clergy sexual abuse almost every day her on Deep Thoughts. One of the reasons I do it is to create a place where the people involved can talk about what happened. One thing I’ve noticed is that no matter the evidence, somebody will take the side of the accused pastor and attack the victim.  “Sally Sue” dropped a note yesterday on  my Pastor Curtis Franklin arrested (12/09) post.

has anyone thought to check out the girl that is doing the accusing?????? I found out that she moved to Louisiana and started an affair with the Youth Pastor and when confronted lied but then broke down and told the truth....The Youth Pastor all of a sudden felt led to leave the church and the girl followed and is now going to have his baby....yes they are now married.....she is really messed up. And it is from one family that this is all coming from....they were offended in church....What a waste, I just do not understand them wanting to ruin a Pastor......But let us all check the facts...all of them....

I grow tired of telling those who post this crap that it is what the pastor did that is the issue, not what the victim did or has done since. The pastor allegedly committed a crime by raping a girl under the age of 16. And lets’ be clear here – the abuse started when the girl was 12.  With his background in the clergy, he should have known better. He should have ran the other way. He should have ran other way from his second victim too.

Do they ask you to check your brain at the door when you attend church?
