Thinking of and soooo grateful for Scout and others who sacrificially and bravely broke the silence to abuse of a sexual nature from their pastor in their GCx church.  Thank you.  I believe many others are so grateful to you. You broke down long guarded and tightly shut doors of secrecy.  I thought of you as I heard about this brave summit to the Evangelical Church to let victims be heard and be healed.

Here is the link to the article in Christianity Today:

So interesting that Scout, was led this past year to speak out publicly about her abuse both of a spiritual and sexual nature by a “respected man of authority”, especially considering the impact gymnast Rachael Denhollander’s testimony has also had this year on so many victims and those who should be held responsible. Today I watched the old broadcasts from Megyn Kelly’s Show with her, and then with another reporting journalist.  Listen to what Megyn Kelly says about abusers who cleverly set up their victims from 8:39 to 10:00 minute mark.  Link to the Clip is below:

I personally that a huge reason for the sexual abuse is that a huge number of Evangelical men (70%) and Evangelical pastors (50%) are watching on line pornography regularly. I see the sexual abuse as a symptom of that problem.

Most of pornography is made of trafficked human people. So, in reality, people, who watch porn are most likely watching rapes. About a million children are being trafficked into the sex slave industry. To get an idea of that number, picture a huge football stadium full of children being trafficked into a life of rapes on a daily basis. It's horrific.

To me it's also sad that when this topic is brought up in most churches, the men are told how bad it is for "THEM", while ignoring the fact of the true victims the people that were trafficked into this horrific industry. Then the men do become addicted to that porn and many families are being destroyed.

Then little children in these days are getting addicted to this porn at a young age of between 9 to 12. This is horrific. Because this sin is one which multiplies and duplicates itself. I.e the abused become the abuser. (I'm talking generally, obviously not about every abused person)  So, with this internet porn, we can expect this to only get more and more frequent and it will lead people into abuse, because it is graphic abuse that people are watching.

We can't ignore this. Ignoring it and just dealing with the symptoms is like having a flood in your house, while the faucet is running and investing in mops.

Where is your evidence that 70% of evangelical men and 50% of evangelical pastors watch porn? That's a pretty broad statement without any evidence to back it up.

Most of pornography is made of trafficked human people? Are you kidding? People who watch porn are most likely watching rapes? All of these are claims with zero
evidence to back it up. Don't spout false information if you can't back it up. The pornography industry is a multi billion dollar industry with paid men and women
actors and actresses that have sex for a previously agreed upon amount of money.

Right of hand, the 50% of Evangelical pastors that watch porn, that's from Promise Keepers. That human trafficking is linked to pornography is well known. I know someone, who was a "porn star." I asked her about this very statistic. She said that 100% of pornography is human trafficking. I'm not going that far. I don't have time to research it again right now. You can search for it online. For a while, I was talking with an actor that has been in various movies. You've probably seen him and we were talking about making a film about this while exposing this at the same time. Because it needs to be exposed. I have a bunch of quotes from porn producers, that I could probably send you if you private message me. It to me is so disgusting that I don't want to post it here.
