    First we need to recognize that we helped create it. Have you read the survey that said that 72 percent of UMC Clergywomen reported experiences of harassment and overwhelmingly said that when reporting it to a DS or Bishop, or their own church they got little help. Remember pedophilia did not begin with Roy Moore, it began in the church. Yes we need to address it but first our complicity so that we do not smell of sanctimony. Also I don’t want my grandson befriended by men in the church, who I experience as too often patriarchal, and telling men to befriend lonely boys is what too many sex offenders have done. Please get a clue. The only suggestion I liked is men calling out other men, but most men are smart enough to have figured it out on their own and haven’t. What is workin is reporting bad behavior in the media. We should be reporting the pastors that abuse in the media.
