Just something I'd like to share

Bill Gothard, an Illinois-based advocate for home schooling and conservative dress who warned against rock music and debt, has resigned from the ministry he founded after allegations of sexually harassing women who worked at his ministry and failing to report child abuse cases.

 

Gothard's resignation from the Institute in Basic Life Principles, according to a letter sent to families affiliated with the ministry he founded, comes a week after he was put on administrative leave. According to an organizer involved in the whistle-blowing website Recovering Grace, 34 women told the website they had been sexually harassed; four women alleged molestation.

Our family was in his program and both my older siblings spent some time alone at their headquarters working for him. My sister and I were both in the youth choir whenever we attended their conferences that happened every other month or so where we also interacted with this man. I'm sure this isn't relevant to any of you, I just wanted to share. My brother and I have been following this for a while, and there was some uncertainty of whether or not anything would be done. Here's to hoping he will receive a jail sentence somehow.

 

On a lighter note, the RuneScape fanclub is like, accepting members again, dude.

Stuff like this can be pretty scary. A boy scout troop near where I'm from received allegations of sexual assault by a former leader last year.
