Started in 1982 when she was 12 and he was “early 20s” and lasted five years. Admits to kissing and touching but no intercourse. Family forgave him and went through some purification ritual with his church so it’s all good. No word if he worked as a drag queen.

Is there a statute of limitations for the sexual assault of underage children?

Note that the "relationship" started when girl was 12 and it went on for 5 years. So it would have been illegal even when the serial assault ended when she was 17.

Why were the police not called when it was discovered?! This is such a huge part of the problem. If churches have something like this happen just do the right thing and contact law enforcement and then cooperate fully and treat the offender like they have airborne Ebola. Then support the victim by loving them and helping get them counseling or whatever help they need. The world is a bad place and terrible people wind up in churches, schools, the medical industry, and other places where vulnerable people are. Still, if you nail these people to the wall and not cover it up it helps protect the victims and the organization.

because it is what these evangelical churches do. I'd bet thousands that the victim was shamed for seducing him too. Pure evil

Your brush is incredibly too broad. I'm a member of an "evangelical church" and part of its leadership. We have dealt with the sexual assault of a minor twice in the years I have been a part of the church. It was a volunteer both times. We called the police and banned the offenders. Both were arrested and convicted. We also had a pastor who had an affair with a married woman in the church. He was fired immediately when it came out. Some churches handle things right. You don't generally hear about those. You hear about the horror stories and I understand why.

When the right stops calling every gay or trans person a pedophile I will stop doing the same of evangelicals. There is far, far, far more historical evidence pointing at religion for that than the LBGTQ+ Community

As always broad brush ideology over nuance and common ground. Good job.

Good grief....a 12-year-old child has been sexually abused for 5 years, and we're turning it political.

SMH.
yes a 12 year old was molested for years, in the 1980's and it is just coming to light now because the gross evangelical bastards handled in house and forgave themselves for it.

So yeah I think this thread is completely on point for what this story is about.
