Thank you the thoughts. I will say this: if a child abuse incident occurs and it’s called to the hotline, it’s faxed to a district office. The worker has 30 days to investigate it and closes It while simultaneously working on 40 case. There are only a few states that have a clergy privilege. I think it’s Arizona, Utah, Idaho, Washington and Alaska. Have a ten minute session with your legislature. A law is made, the Departments makes it policy, my dad was a policeman for 25 years.Canadiandude2 wrote: ↑Sat Aug 12, 2023 5:48 amI’m confused. I’m also Canadian and don’t know who’s who of ‘church royalty’ besides the Q15 and maybe a 70 or two.
How closely connected was this relative to church actors in terms of regular acquaintance?
It’s a shame that case against the church in ?Arizona did not prevail in terms of holding Bishops accountable for failing to report. Many Canadian Provinces have made Clergy mandatory reporters. Easier to prosecute clergy who are in the know that way.
His case could remain open if their building their case slowly.
It’s also true that the youth of men whose fathers or grandfathers hold high positions in church get soft disciple. This is what I heard. There is a term in Mormonism called Mormon roulette. Meaning a couple or person could be treated harshly with one Bishop while another treats them kindly.
Also in Arizona, Utah, Washington and Alaska, the clergy doesn’t need to report. Those are rules written by the legislature and signed by the governor.
