Well, it wouldn't. It's a church, with people you say you trust now (wait until their next lapse in judgment -- they missed your ex high and wide!) and a message, I'm sure, of Love and Open Arms and All That Jazz What Hides the Fire and Brimstone. There are some charismatic charismatics out there, you know what I mean?

I'm torn between "pity he failed" and "good, now he gets to live with his guilt". I don't take kindly to predators. Lock them away and throw the key into Mount Doom.

...what.

This church? This church needs to not be in your life. They cannot, in one breath, scold him for trying to prey on their youth group and in the next send him support. What would the young victim in all this say if she knew the ministers "wrote him a note of support"?
