This is so horrifically sad... Bro Baker was allowed to destroy so many innocent lives, including the extended family members of those he sexually abused. This mother is to be commended for speaking up about her son. Hopefully she knows that it was not her fault and she is not alone, it was the fault of Baker and those church officials who enabled, empowered and covered up his crimes.

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.
