What a load of troubles this girl is facing in her
young life. The suicide of this woman and being
molested will scar her for life. The sad part is
it's pretty common for young girls to be molested.

The scripture verse that was quoted here is great for those who are followers of Jesus Christ of Nazarath, but a majority of people who are going to post on this site are not believers. They rellish the opportunity to demean any form of Christianity and don't focus on the individual who sinned. But you must also use that verse in context. The verse is in reference to making a final judgment of your own accord, as to who is going to heaven.

Excellent point. Too many people misuse scripture.
Thanks to the poster who provided the link to the Journal. It may provide answers to questions and not just fan the flames. Very sad story with so many lives effected.

I happen to know Dino. I am sickened by what has happened and despite the fact that I used to be a social worker, I would have never guessed this in a million years.

It is important to note that Dino made a hoorible mistake. That is not to be forgotten or condoned. But this mistake/crime/abomination is not all that he is.

Dino is a good man. He was a good pastor. He raised and loved a lot of kids that would have had horrible lives. He did a lot of good things for the community.

I believe there is only one sexual abuse victim. No need to worry about the pool or school next door.

The punishment that Dino will give himself is enough condemnation for a lifetime.

Protect yourself and your children.
Any one person can be a sexual predator and no one know, but the ones are known as sexual predators are obvious threats as well.

Diphenhydramine caused death ? Wow ! I take 10 per night for sleep, I cant imagine how many would have to be taken to take ones life.

This is a very sad story. I hope the young girl will have access to a lifetime of counseling.

Sorry to address the elephant in the room...
My sister committed suicide. It's very disturbing to read the article in the Journal connecting the pastor's wife's suicide to his behavior. It's too late for his wife to get counseling for the pain that's alleged he caused.
When a person is in a position of trust (who many confide in) does it really still count that he did many other things "for the community"?(good works)
It just seems to negate any of those things and why it's so horrible.

Sorry, not enough for me.
This piece of excrement had years to condemn and change his actions. He didn't. His not-guilty plea also makes me want to puke.

This man should be shot! He strongly ruined a young girl's life. He does not belong among us. HE MADE HIS CHOICE.
