Interesting, but they don’t seem to have replaced the “don’t tell the authorities, tell us (the church)”. Until they replace their rules with a simple “if you need to report something tell the police”, I can’t begin to have any respect for them.

Can you imagine if the CEO of Walmart made this statement. “We have decided to no longer move managers to other stores after they have been found raping under age customers.” Seriously what’s the difference?
