Another Mormon Connection To A Heinous Crime - Page 13
What I don't understand about s-xual abuse allegations and Church leaders is WHY some leaders fail to report it to the police? In this case, even the Church as a body supported the action of this Bishop and those who knew this guy (a police officer) have confessed to the abuse of molesting babies. The only thing the Bishop did was to "strongly encourage" him AND his wife to report it to the authorities but it was ONLY when a police officer (two months later) moved to the new ward and found out about the punishment he got (excommunication) and the fact he was NOT turned in to the authorities.
I understand the LEGAL aspect and obligations, however how is possible that from a HUMAN stand point so many people could have known this and yet FAILED to call the authorities?
