Correcting False Claims of the Christian Practice
THANK YOU for calling out people on their bogus "we're supposed to forgive" excuses for accommodating evil. And you have correctly noted before, the appropriate context of forgiveness, and what forgiveness does and does not mean. Over and over again, throughout the entire Bible, we are called to be wise and discerning, to USE OUR MINDS, and judge RIGHTLY rather than self-righteously or hypocritically. You won't find a passage where Jesus specifically talks about sex abuse of children because it SHOULD ALREADY BE SELF EVIDENT!
One of our most basic functions as parents, grandparents, a family, a community is to stop evil, NOT welcome evildoers into situations where they will be tempted to do more evil. If a child abuser is truly repentant and wants to attend church which is different than a family function then what happens is special arrangements are made with church staff so the person will always be supervised while at church functions and never allowed to be in contact with children.
Being Christian doesn't have to mean being stupid or a doormat!
