In Bangor, ME, just a few days(on a Sunday) after the Sandusky story broke, Rev. Robert Carlson jumped from the Bucksport bridge, ending his life. People were praising him and telling how wonderful he was and how much he had done for people and the community, until the story came out about his abuse of at least one boy since the 1970's. Some still say, "but he did so much for the community." I say, " does that negate the shame and suffering that he placed upon his victims?" Churches, "Christians," and people who do not understand the predatory state of pedophilia seem to believe that they can be rehabilitated. NOT SO!
Even a man in a local church was going to be nominated as deacon again and then as a possible janitor in the church, which also houses a Christian school. It is about keeping the controversy quiet, but it allows the perverts to continue what they do.

While showing others the way to nice orgasms is most likely not how we'd like to see our church officials, it is their duty according to the bible.

Just read something about this being mentor month through Learning Works.
I do hope that the mentors' credentials have been thoroughly verified. If one who worked for the Sheriff's department, hospitals, Husson, etc. was able to get by with falsifying his credentials, then..........
