1. The "child" IS a child. She was 16 yrs old when this happened. IF she's had multiple sex partners at such a young age, that would point to other issues, making her even more vulnerable. Despite all that though, he is a grown man, a grandfather, HER PASTOR and counselor. I don't care if she paraded into his office in nothing but her birthday suit, HE should have been the responsible adult. He should have taken a page from Joseph in the bible and run in the other direction. Maybe she did know what she was doing was wrong. But to imply that a mature pastor bares the same responsibility for the situation as a 16 yr old girl is ludicrous and sick. I wonder if you would feel the same if this was YOUR young daughter, neice, sister.
