MO - Abuse victims comment on accusations vs. Board of Education chair
We're disturbed by Rev. Stan Archie's response to allegations that he sexually exploited a church member.
It's disingenuous to claim that a church investigates its own pastor and that and some other anonymous body allegedly did so too. Why refuse to name the organization that supposedly checked out the accusations? Because Rev. Archie's denial of sexual misconduct is so vague and is issued through his lawyer, it rings hollow.
It's also troubling to see a minister attacking his accuser, crying "extortion." Usually, that's a sign that a predator is trying to intimidate other victims, witnesses and whistleblowers from stepping forward.
We hope that anyone who might shed light on these accusations will find the courage to speak up.
