West Virginia Supreme Court says Mormon Multi-State Sex Abuse Lawsuit Can Move Forward

Up to today, my major concern with masturbation interviews has been the harm done to our children.
However, the bishops are also in the cross hairs of possible sexual abuse lawsuits. I have several friends who serve selflessly in this calling. It’s time consuming, often thankless, and sometimes downright depressing.
Then add to their burden the liability of posing sexual questions to a child. Forty years ago, the risk of being hauled into court may have been low. Today, being alone with a child behind closed doors is frowned on by society. To ask the child about sex is unacceptable. The risk of lawsuits is no longer minimal.
- Protect your children from private masturbation interviews.
- Protect your bishops from the frightening legal risks of inappropriate interview practices. Don’t allow them to perform private interviews on your children. Never allow them to probe into sex.
- I am going to write a letter to my stake president requesting that changes be made to the youth interview process. At present, there are 23 members of the stake willing to sign the letter, 14 anonymously and 9 openly.
- Compose a petition where anyone around the world can register their request for changes.
Until the Register for Interview Changes is available, you may want to add your name to the Common Consent Register. 435 members have chosen to actively participate in the Law of Common Consent. I urge you to consider it, too. For details, click HERE
