This is such a sad case, so many, many innocent lives harmed and kept quiet for so long. Child predators need to be kept far away from kids forever. BUT, an even more powerful danger is when high ranking officials enable, empower, and cover up these sex crimes against kids. They need to be held responsible for allowing more innocent kids to be sexually abused, otherwise nothing changes.

Child sex abuse thrives in secrecy and secret systems that allow it to continue to this day, so hopefully anyone who has knowledge or may have been harmed by Brother Stephen Baker, will have the courage to come forward and contact the "police", not the church officials. They are not the proper officials to be investigating child sex crimes.. Also keep in mind your silence only hurts, and by speaking up there is a chance for healing, exposing the truth, and therefore protecting others.

Don't give your churches another penny!

Don't allow your money to pay the legal fees for the sleaze they protected since 2000.

They protected a molester and their reputation instead of the children.
