MO - New sex suit filed vs. Board of Education chair
We're disturbed by these new child sex abuse accusations against Rev. Stan Archie.
Research, history and our experience shows that false allegations in cases like this are extremely rare. We strongly suspect there are others who have been sexually victimized by this minister. For their healing, and for the safety of others, we hope they step forward, call police, expose wrongdoing so that more crimes can be prevented.
We commend both of the young women who are, by seeking justice, essentially warning other unsuspecting and vulnerable individuals about this predator. Their courage is safeguarding others.
50 State AG Call for Grand Jury
Any investigation must be:
- independent of and separate from the church
- must have subpoena powers and ability to compel testimony under oath
Anything short of these criteria is a sham and whitewash.
In addition, write letters to the editor, make phone calls to politicians as they can apply pressure to keep them responsive to our demand. We need to make efforts to ensure that they follow up on what the state is doing to investigate these crimes.
