I completely agree on reporting laws. I looked into the law in my state of Wisconsin and only licensed people – teachers, doctors, nurses – need to report known child sex abuse. That leaves the churches off the hook.
The Lutheran minister who performed my wedding and baptized my older son, was discovered to be a pedophile many years later. He went to prison. He was married with four children, two adopted. Trust no one.
