Here's a case involving a Pastor of a local mennonite church...

The last article really irritates me!

This article is 10 months after the initial case began:

This was just a few days ago:

This was just yesterday and the tone of the whole thing just makes me angry:

I'm not "stunned" or "sad". The fellow was accused and killed himself rather than face justice. People are so blind. So much for justice for the young people he's wounded.

I am surprised at the tone of the article too, but people often say nice things just after someone died, regardless of their real thoughts. They may have had a running feud and grudge for years but when asked to publicly comment, say bland nice things. But what you are talking about is the capacity for adults to not believe such accusations even though the truth is that false accusations down to the age of nine are rarely false.

God grant me
The Serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The Courage to change the things I can,
And the Wisdom to know the difference.

I dont quite understand what you comment. I think that since a few years we do listen more childrens and also teen's and youg adults that have been abuse in whatever type of abuse. We as adult are more carefull to listen but most to help childrens that are abuse or get abuse and give them better support. As sociaty i think we tend to do better no ?

If I am wrong or if I mid understud you I am sorry. I am more french speacking and have to think a bit about the translation in my head.

Take care
