Overall, the whole situation and similar ones of abuse are tragedies.

War Dog said nothing about not holding the perpetrator for himself or others responsible. Those who commit these crimes should be held accountable to the full extent of the law. I hope that the Mr. Novak is able to overcome with or without a financial settlement.

Fact is, both the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Scouting organizations are filled with imperfect people.

Sad situation. They bad guy got convicted of a misdemeanor? That seems to be much more of a misscarriage of justice. The only reason he's suing is that the church has deep pockets.

Kalindra - perhaps you should wait until you actually know what you're talking about. I myself have PTSD from a shooting. I still want to run when I'm in public and hear loud noises. I can't stand guns in TV or movies.

What I think wardog is saying, and what I agree with 100% is that at some point, YOU have to be held accountable. While people who do you wrong should certainly atone, at some point YOU have to move on and quit being a hostage to what happened. Notice, I keep using the word "you"?

The best revenge is sucess, and moving on in spite of what happened!!!
