This alleged rapist priest was protected by at least two pastors for 13 years.
A 15-year-old rape victim was forced to stand terrified before her entire Baptist congregation in New Hampshire to confess her “sin” of having become pregnant.
What Tina Anderson wasn’t allowed to tell the congregation was that she had become pregnant after she was raped by a church deacon, a man twice her age.
[H]er pastor Chuck Phelps, of the Independent Fundamental Baptist Church, told her she was lucky not to have been born during Old Testament times when she would have been stoned to death.
[The alleged rapist] offered to take her out of state where abortions for minors are legal, then asked if she wanted him to “punch me in the stomach as hard as he could” to trigger a miscarriage.
[He] lost the deaconship, but continued to be a member of the church “in good standing” […] and girls continued to babysit for him.
