If he molested his grandson, there are other victims out there. Usually, pedophiles seek out occupations like priest, pastor, teacher, to provide themselves with prey.

this isn't 1986, this is 2014, lawenforcement should go back and interview children of his congregation because many will not come forward..

I always agree on the consentual part. But the assault, that's just undeserving.
