I don't actually know that much about how long DNA evidence lasts..(need to read up on it)..I know that things cant always be proved.. still.. there is always lie detector tests.. pretty accurate.. even though I understand they cant be used in court, it might show who is lying.. If a person REFUSED a test.. it might give an inkling as to why?..regardless.. you would think there would have to be real evidence to convict anybody. Who knows?
Lie detectors are not allowed in court because they are not reliable. Therefore a refusal to take would would not be a sign of guilt.

If the women in the church had serviced the Pastor this would have never happened. Church womens fault.

Good question. I've wondered that, myself. When people think "high-profile pastor", I doubt very seriously many pastors from West Virginia come to mind. I don't mean that as offensive to West Virginians, by no means. But I think you know what I mean. Billy Graham, Franklin Graham, Joel Osteen, Jim Bakker, etc. come to my mind when I hear those 'words'.
As for Mike Lewis being considered "high-profile", I'm sure that excites him to pieces. I don't know if reporter Mike Waterhouse was asked to refer to him as "high-profile", or if it's just the fact that every time you turn around (or so it seems), Mike Lewis is contacting news outlets (television & newspaper), requesting they report about each new 'event' that arises in his life. I hope that doesn't sound 'mean', but it does seem to be the actual, factual truth.

I know he is not, he was wrongfully accused, people can say what they want, he and i was very close i looked up to him and he was there for me, and helped me throuh some issues in my life as a child and teenager, if he did do the things he is being accused for ,,then why not me? I spent many hrs in his study alone, plenty of time to do whatever ,,but again i was never touched in that way,

Yes Someone, you are right about the money. It's pretty obvious that's what important to them, or they wouldn't have all brought lawsuits.

Someone, I can't put my finger on who you are (cause I know them too, at least a couple of them) but I commend you for being passionate enough to speak out about this and hopefully you can dig for the real truth. Too bad it hasn't helped Sandy any at this point, but at least one of the accuser's was apparently caught up in some lies which resulted in his loss of pastorship at a church in Cedar Grove. Maybe things done spitefully to hurt others and steal their lives from them do come back around, eventually.

For every cow that's milked, there's a milker who enjoys reaping the benefits. While your friend that you were so close to may not have been the 'cow'(or 'slut', as you like to call her), he sure must've enjoyed the milk. Otherwise, I think he'd stayed and confronted his congregation instead of tucking tail and leaving, which church members said he did.
