Just because a man hold a position of power in any church, mosque, or synagogue, that never justifies his sexual exploitation of any person. A Pastor in an El Paso church used his position as a “man of God” to justify his sexual exploitation of her. He convinced the victim that she was “spiritually stagnant.” Fondling her was the answer he suggested as the solution for her spiritual stagnation.
Of course the woman is a victim, and the Pastor the criminal. However all women should attempt to help other women realize that they have the power to say NO, even to a pastor or officer of the law.
