Stop Clergy Abuse - "Three Is Not A Crowd...When It Comes To Counseling"
Petition Background (Preamble):
Sexual contact between a counselor and counselee is NEVER consensual, NEVER an "affair." It's ABUSE!
Too many churches see the victims of sexual exploitation by predatorial pastors as "just rewards" for women (and occasionally men) that have not been able to defend their sexual boundaries when it is invaded by some helper in authority over them. Too often, our church leaders call these criminal acts "an affair" -- and blame the counselee for being "equally responsible" -- in most states sexual exploitation by helping professionals is criminal sexual conduct in the third degree -- a felony!
