Church applauds Andy Savage - James33 - 01-16-2018

Most of you heard about this but I'm going to take a controversial position here... the church applauded Andy Savage for "showing remorse for his sexual INCIDENT". 

^^ In the church's defense, I feel as if they've been lied to again by Andy Savage. It was NOT just a sexual incident. I understand why they would applaud if that was the case but this was manipulation from a position of authority and in this case, abusive.

I quite agree with you, James33.

I'm not familiar with the situation. Who's Andy Savage?

Andy Savage is a big name in the purity culture movement. Years ago, just prior to leading/teaching at a big True Love Waits conference, he sexually assaulted a 17 year old girl in his youth group.

I didn't know the name until the church made news for giving him a standing ovation. I saw the video and the church was lied to in Andy's "apology". Manipulated a 17 year old, now manipulating a church. What a disgusting twit.

Ugh, that's awful.

This whole situation is sickening. Kudos to Jules for having the courage to speak up.
