Crime Heinous To Connection Mormon Another
The thing is, my son did something that I consider nowhere near as bad, and he would have to go through an unbelievable amount of stuff in order to go on a mission. You know, we "raised the bar". Now, if he tries to get everything in order, he will have to wait for 2 to 3 years before it would even be possible.
This boy, from the story, hurt a lot of people, very badly. They said it was deemed "not a sexual crime", but if there wasn't an element of homosexuality to it, it wouldn't be anywhere near as bad an assault. The boys wouldn't be anywhere near as damaged as they are.
If I had done something like that, I would have been excommunicated. This guy thinks that he will still go on a mission.
