Fortunately for you all your judgement will occur after the facts are known and
The boy's family claims it's not rape and the issue is between him and
his bishop. That implies that there was a consensual sexual relationship.
Someone should tell this family that, in the eyes of the law, a 14-year-old
cannot consent. Therefore, any sexual relationship with a person of that age is
automatically child rape.
I'm only saying this because every time someone else gets arrested for this
same thing, it's said about them. But I hope they throw the book at him.
Someone supposedly living his religion should have known better, and that age
gap isn't even something you could write off as a supposed
"relationship". Here's hoping the victim can recover. Tragic.
