Presbyterian officials kept an accused predatory minister on the job in Boca Raton for a year before finally ousting him because of credible allegations that he sexually exploited a teenage girl.
Shame on them.
Rev. Kirk A. McCormick of Grace Community Church should have been suspended immediately. It is outrageous that this perpetrator would be allowed around children while investigations of his sexual abuse with a minor occur. We urge the church officials to put the safety of children ahead of everything else. And we urge them to discipline those responsible for this inexcusable recklessness.
