    Imagine calling child rape "adultery" just to minimize it to only later be called out by that very brave victim the next minute. wow.

    You're missing the huge part.... he didn't go there to confess.... SHE WENT THERE TO EXPOSE HIM, and he must of seen her in the crowd so he decided to reveal his interpretation of what happened before she could out him. if she didnt have the courage to go, this would have never happened. Brave girl.

      Oh my God. You’re fucking right. His tone of voice was not repentant, it was declaratory. It was like saying what he ate from breakfast. He didn’t care. You’re so fucking right. Underrated comment.
      He kept defending himself and correcting the people in the audience. If he really was sorry he wouldn’t have been able to stand on that stage or look the members of the crowd in the eyes. He probably would have resigned weeks prior if he actually had been convicted of his crime. But no. He didn’t care. He was anxious he’d be ratted out like you said. This makes me so sick to my stomach, having grown up in church this kind of thing could have happened and I wouldn’t have known what to have done as a kid. This makes me so sick how twisted they use the scripture. It makes me sick to my stomach to see how they disregard justice just to save face and appear godly. Using “forgiveness” as a means to sweep it under the rug and dismiss the whole thing of responsibly for his crimes.
      100% fucking pure evil. God has a special place in hell for this guy. That’s biblically endorsed too. Just read Matthew 23. Jesus literally would be disgusted and condemn these kinds of people. Half of Jesus’ ministry was **against** the so called “Pastors” of his day and age, the Pharisees and Sadducees. He literally warns people to “do what they teach you but not what they do” because he wanted to make a distinction between actually following the law and acting unjustly and lawlessly as the hypocritical teachers would do.
      If Jesus was around today I bet he would fucking disown Christianity. 100%
      These fucking hypocrites defend their faith more then they do their fellow man. Disgusting what people will do when you dangle eternal life on a string in front of them.

      @J Cole Taylor I didn’t read all of this but understanding the gist, It truly is horrible that stuff like this happens, we can’t let it get to us to much though. God deals with it all in the end of it and he’ll get his due-diligence in the end.

    As a rape victim, this whole thing is just totally unfair. It's not the church's place to forgive him. That power belongs to the victim. I don't understand how they could possibly go up to hug the guy after finding out what he did.

    • wac lac
      wac lac 9 months ago +52

      maybe because he confessed in the house of god in front on gods followers. the church belongs to god not the people. so its not the “church’s place” forgiving him. it’s her choice like you said. But really it’s up to god to forgive him for god will present his judgment upon him when he dies. the victim is also a sinner as everybody in that room is a sinner so none of them are better then him not even the victim. forgive your enemy as god forgave you and pray and show love to those who persecute you

      @Julia de Soto everything I just said is from the New Testament. and that’s crazy you mention “mental health” could you actually imagine everything I seen and went through that made me believe in god was all fake? that’s an interesting thought. I’ve seen some dark things in the night, I’ve seen paranormal activity worse then the movies in real life. I call upon Jesus for help and watched these things coward in fear. i never stop believing in him sense

      Mikey Blake 2 months ago +2

      @Patricity I know, my church does this, too. I'm using "group hug" as a term of brevity. Describing that whole act would make it a run-on sentence that becomes confusing. But you're right, I could've been more specific

      @Pure Gameplay That is correct, but the law aside, many consider it unethical if the age gap is so large. It would at the very least be considered very weird and creepy, especially from a pastor. I would also make the argument that he was an authority figure to the girl, which would make it illegal.

      Agreed I’m Mormon and whatever is going on in that church was wrong. If I’m correct you have to admit to keeping the law of chastity for getting roles like these. And adultery doesn’t fall in line with the law of chastity or laws since it was a child.

    • juno
      juno 9 months ago +129

      most people hate what the religion has done to their lives, not the innocent people who follow it. it’s kinda impossible to not be resentful after some of the shit we were put through. i am very biased lmao i’m aware of it. we all have different experiences, so i understand a lot of people love it. sadly a lot of people have also been abused, it’s just hard to see past that. and i don’t really want to, organized religion is something i can never support. taking advantage of people’s faith is truly evil.
      i’m native american so i think i have a different perspective than most people. half of my family is missing because of christianity. i really don’t like being hateful, but this is a feeling most of us share. we were and still are treated like animals, because the church thought we were too “barbaric”. yeah i can never forgive that.

    I don't know if it's the same in America as it is in Germany, but if it is, he won't even have to face consequences, as the church has their own laws and they will likely not sentence him for his crimes. Its truly sickening 🤢

      He definitely won't be punished, by the law at least. There's a thing called statute of limitations in most places, meaning you can't be arrested for a crime after a certain amount of time has passed. Sad, but true.

She was 16 at the time, the age of consent in Indiana is 16, there was no problem unless it wasn’t consensual, which we don’t know. In France it’s 14, but no one is claiming that French people are pedophiles over there.

  • TheRedPandaCat
    TheRedPandaCat 8 months ago +843

    The pastor at the church my parents took me to as a child was always bringing up how he murdered an innocent woman when he was 18.
    It was so common to hear him say he killed a random woman, went to jail for it, found god, and got out of jail as a changed man who eventually became a pastor. It felt like he was bragging about taking a human life. And people would cheer for him when he mentioned that he committed murder and still became a preacher to a massive, successful church.
    I later read the details of the murder. He nearly decapitated the woman with a buck knife because "I don't know, man. I just went fuckin' crazy."
    He never dared to mention how brutal the crime was. He blamed it on hard drugs, even though weed was the only thing found in his apartment. He only served 8 years.
    The crime happened in 1975, but it still genuinely pisses me off. How can you call a cold-blooded murderer becoming a millionaire after only 8 years in prison an act of god? Something to be celebrated, something to be seen as inspirational?
    Maury Davis is a piece of shit. He always brought politics to his sermons and even told his congregation who to vote for. He jokingly mentioned how he threatened to run over his wife's dog. He was openly homophobic, claiming that all lesbians are abusive alcoholics. He wrote an autobiography and advertised it during a sermon. I could go on and on about how loved he is in the community despite being terrible. I'm fine with people being religious, but I do find it an issue when you're practically worshipping someone who boasts about his sins.

    There was a pastor at my church who was caught cheating on his wife (the one he was cheating with wasn't underage btw). He admitted it to the congregation, lost is pastoral status and was asked to leave the church not long after. The fact that there are churches who congratulate pastors admitting to adultery, and that it seems pretty common at that, honestly disgusts me

    The only reason they clapped was because he admitted to it and acknowledged it was wrong.
    It was when she came up and exposed what he actually did that everyone got mad. They weren’t ok with the adultery, they were proud of him because he admitted, and then they were mad that he left out the details of the crime.
    I’m so glad she came forward like she did and exposed him like that. That takes so much to realize that what he did was horrible and that she wasn’t in the wrong.

      Convincing minors to take hormones or even worse, to get rid of parts of their body is not helping them feel better about themselves. It’s actually setting them up for failure while virtue-signaling as caring for those children.

      @Clauce Micro
      What transkids go through is often first struggling to understand what about them is different until they somehow learn the language for it, then if they're lucky, they go to therapy and are seen by that psychiatrist for at least six months before even talking about any medical interventions. Once that kid reaches the age puberty starts they take puberty blockers first, not hormones. Those blockers are completely reversible and have been used on non-trans kids for decades to treat various conditions. While on puberty blockers the trans kid continues therapy and then maaybe if they have approval from the primary care, psychiatrist, and parent (depending on where you live), they stop the puberty blockers and start taking hormone replacement therapy. Kids aren't being handed this stuff. until they're a teenager, most transitioning is just changing clothes, name, and maybe pronouns. Even when medical transition comes up, it's very very rarely ever any sort of surgery. So don't try to pretend like that's what's happening when kids are told it's okay to be trans and are in a supportive situation.
      Its much better, ethical, and successful at giving those kids better quality of life than forcing children to not be trans.

      That's catholic, or some other church that functions like catholics. In most churches, if you committed adultery but repented, you can still be a pastor. As long as it doesn't effect the church in a negative way.
      However churches like the Catholic Church, have all these rules and regulations that are more about business than worship. A recent priest has been saying lines wrong when baptising. So all these people think they aren't saved anymore because of a simple mistake. Dumb
      A lot of people think of Catholics when they hear christain. But really most christain churches in the US don't like Catholics. Not the people, just their beliefs. They have idols that step between them and God. A lot of abuse happens in the catholic church too. Bad rep for christains

    • Hilaire Belloc
      Hilaire Belloc Year ago +188

      @lalo time The Catholic Church, being the oldest institution in the world, with over a billion members across the globe, necessarily has an extensive Code of Canon Law that, ideally, guarantees a degree of oversight and provides channels for conducting business and addressing abuses.
      However, the form of the Sacrament of Baptism is not a matter of canon law; it is a matter of sacramental theology. So you are wrong to connect the baptismal formula with "rules and regulations that are more about business than worship." On the contrary, the sacrament itself depends in part upon the proper words being said, which principle may be seen in embryo in the New Testament; the baptismal font is not the place for personal ingenuity. The priest in question did not make a "simple mistake"; regardless of his intentions he was either extremely careless or willfully disrespectful of the Church's instructions.
      Finally, to say that the invalidly baptized are not "save[d]" is to misunderstand the Catholic doctrines concerning salvation, which see a more or less gradual human progress toward beatitude, in cooperation with the divine grace normatively received at Baptism.
      In other words, if you're going to call something "dumb," I suggest understanding it first.

    Read into the story a bit more, and according to the victim, she was told at the time to sit in front of her abuser, listen to his apology, and forgive him for it because she "needed to forgive like Christ forgave, because essentially if I don't do that there is eternal damnation"
    Also, the reason it was kept secret within the family for so long is because they said they wanted to "do it the biblical way and handle the problem internally" and not contact any police

      @Alexa Puerta No, it isn’t. In adultery, both would be stoned. But, this wasn’t adultery, this was sexual abuse. There’s actually a Bible story about one of King David’s sons raping or molesting one of his stepsisters. He wasn’t punished and that carried terrible consequences for the entire family, because that caused Absalom to want to avenge his sister and kill.

      @Alexa Puerta I mean I kind of agree to a point there, everyone has their role to play, that was the Old Testament as well. In the New Testament she would have to ask for forgiveness for not trying to get out of it. Which still sucks, but if you just let it happen and not even try to get out of it AND you’re betrothed? That looks bad and is a sin

      TO BE FAIR, the word "adultery" in the Bible covers many things. Even premarital sex is considered adultery. So, if you wanna be technical about it, assaulting a woman is adultery, by biblical definition. However, he deliberately uses very broad vocabulary in order for people to not understand the true gravity of his sins.

    I understand admitting your "sin" I do. It's like saying "hey I done wrong and I'm sorry" like kids that break a vase. But this? When she said what she did I literally cried because even though I wasn't abused in the church I feel her pain of being taken advantage of that way. It makes me absolutely sick. If he wanted to admit his "sin" he should have confessed to the whole thing up front of he was truly sorry for it. Even then it won't ever take away the pain she dealt with and the years she has suffered it. I also understand the congregation at the end who seemed to have sympathy. That's only because we're supposed to love each other despite our flaws and whatever sins we may have committed. Either way, I'm ordained, and I'll say it....this guy is an absolute piece of shit that needs to burn in hell and be assaulted by Satan himself 24/7. I don't care if that gets me sent there I will gladly die on that hill. This guy needs the worst punishment hell can offer.

      @Alexander Leonardi Many don’t receive it sadly, but justice exists still. Just because it isn’t objectively (it’s impossible for it to be objectively perfect) perfect doesn’t mean it isn’t justice.

    as someone who is a christian and lives in indiana, i can't believe ive never heard of this but its just so disgusting. what he did is a legitimate crime, one that ruined this poor girls life, and he is admitting to doing in front of a group of people who proceed to show him love, respect, and forgiveness of which he has not even began to earn. he has a long way to go and no one should be treating him this way as it probably makes him believe he is already forgiven

    If he was truly sorry I think he would have admitted to everything without excuses, not just glazing over the disgusting details. I’m so sickened by the church members and how willing they were to forgive this ingenuine “confession” of his. Poor girl :(

    I grew up in an extremely religious family too and seeing this kind of stuff (nothing near as bad this though holy shit) is part of why I didn't keep up with it. So many people are in church because they think it makes up for the awful shit they enjoy doing.

  • magdalena
    magdalena 24 days ago

    Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, has the power to forgive acts as vile and despicable as these except for the one against whom they were perpetrated. Forgiveness is utterly void if it comes from someone who has no idea what it means to live with the shame, the fear, the self-loathing that comes with being brutalised like this. Absolutely disgusting that people think they have any sort of right to forgive this man's sins.

    "You didn't tell them she was 14 years old!"
    "No, 16."
    as if that's better??
    Honestly both the pastor and the crowd are horrible. Cheating on one's partner is wrong on several levels, and then on top of that it's child rape--it's just plain evil. I'm disgusted at the pastor for committing that heinous crime, and I'm disgusted at the crowd for applauding him.
    I hope that poor girl is doing better, she deserves to get far away from those assholes.

    It's insane that it takes a "not so religious person anymore" to say the truth about wickedness like this. I couldn't agree more with you as well that their viewpoint and their worship of the pastor is so wrong. It sadly happens in many churches and has been happening for a long time.

  • 𝐃𝐮𝐱

    These people are hypocrites, As adultery is still a crime and the person shouldn't be praised for a crime.
    And no matter what age range there should be an age range even if your an adult. Trust me I've seen things that adults shouldn't see but It's not like I'm dead or it scarred me for life or anything. The things that mainly disgust me in this video however are the fact that the age gap between the one doing the crime felt no remorse and the fact about the age gap and not only the age gap but the fact that it is even rape is disgusting. Thing is there's a lot more to things then you'll realize. Hidden truths, hidden lies, people not telling anything just to get what they want for example. It's all just pain, suffering and hypocrisy. Well that's what I gave my definition for life anyways. And maybe I shouldn't have told some things as people might be disgusted with me for not being scarred or anything. Look, it doesn't give me validation or anything; I'm a person that cares for not just the victim but for everybody else involved as it is a very traumatizing event for a church. Just read things through and not bother me or try to harass me as it wasn't really my purpose for texting this derivative. I also don't want anyone to try to harass the people in that video ( which might be possible ) so please just leave others alone as it can hurt individuals not physically but emotionally and that's cyber bullying.

    I'm thankful that my pastor isn't anything like what Charlie is describing. He's a great guy and speaks like he's one of us, and doesn't put himself on any high horse. He's vulnerable like he's one of the people in the crowd, and i have nothing but the utmost respect for him. This however is extremely disturbing.

    There is power in forgiving anyone. I have personal experience with that. But this man needs to feel the repercussions of what he has done before he just gets a hug for the awful things he has done. Nothing has been done to punish this dude other than a few harsh comments from his church. He needs to be in jail.

    I remember my old pastor admits that in the past he was a drug dealer and gone to jail multiple times, when he got into church he became a new person, I find that story inspiring but seeing the video of that pastor committing an horrific act on a child is way too far. He may be a pastor but I don't see him as a man of God nor I'll forgive him
    I'm very sorry for her but she is brave for speaking out

    To clarify, as a Christian minor myself: to all those who use Jesus's death on the cross as a bypass for their sin, unaware that even doing the smallest sin they deserve the fire of hell, you are not a Christian. You can become one, sure; but you are not yet.

    It's ironic how Charlie speaks more truth than most churches do about putting pastors on a pedestal more than Jesus. I'm a Christian and cringe when churches do things like this.
    Christianity is about Jesus and believing in his loving forgiveness in grace. Any pastor who thinks highly of themselves like this are sadly mistaken...

    They probably cheered initially because they thought the woman he cheated with seduced him to do evil, and his sin wasn’t really his fault. But then when they learned she was a child, more people were like wtf that is evil (although some still forgave him…what in the world????)
