Sexual Abuse Case Against Mormon Church

A lawsuit has been brought against the LDS Church in West Virginia for allegedly failing to respond appropriately to complaints of sexual abuse against children by one of the church members. The man who abused the children was sent to jail 5 years ago. However, Plaintiffs argue that local Mormon leaders and the global church is at fault for "working to cloak the crimes of a community member against you children".

Should the Mormon Church at-large be held responsible for the reprehensible behavior of a member?

See this Washington Post article for an in-depth look at this case.

  1. This is a really sad case and my heart goes out to the victims. I'm glad the person who committed these crimes is now in jail but I don't see how the entire church can be responsible for the behavior of a few "bad apples".
