Rick 57 “I appreciate the other argument, that unless you forgive, you do not let go...we have had many dictionary definitions here before, and forgiveness basically means that you no longer hold the perpetrator to account, nor seek any retribution for what they have done. That means accepting that it is OK for pedophiles to continue abusing children!”

I agree with your way of thinking. I came forward to the police about my CSA because I didn’t want this guy to hurt any more children. I had knowledge that there was a child molester out there and he was probably hurting more and more children. He is now behind bars awaiting the trial. His plea was “not guilty” and therefore he has no remorse. I believe CSA is a very big problem in the world and unless people do something it will continue and probably get worse. Child molesters that have no remorse should not be forgiven, ever!
