In response to the letter titled, “Remember the real victims,” (Feb. 26, 2015) let’s be clear: the accusation against the pastor was investigated over a year ago, and he was cleared of any wrongdoing. An accusation does not automatically equal guilt. If there is no guilt, why should he not be “still on the job?”
Connecting dots between the two issues doesn’t make any sense. Besides, the lawsuit alleging instances of bullying is still pending, so doesn’t a presumption of innocence apply here? Why all this publicity implying guilt in this and so many cases? Why can’t one wait until it is settled before casting stones?
