I fully agree that such serious accusations should never be posted as tabloid trash on the internet. Regarding victims, if any criminality has been committed, then it should be turned over to law enforcement. What authority does the church have to dispense any form of "justice" for "victims". What remedy could the vague entity called the church prescribe and actually enforce? I would be cautious regarding pronouncements of declaring this or that person unfit as even a casual stroll through Biblical history would have disqualified most (if not all) of the patriarchs. Sampson slept with prostitutes but as serious as that was God did not take His Spirit from Sampson because of that. David repented adultery and murder, but what about David's many wives? David had so many that he left 10 behind when he fled from Absalom. David would be crucified by most Christian leaders today, and yet he was declared to be a man after God's own heart. I can fully understand why Christian leaders might have serious reservations about Todd Bently, but that said, God Himself may not share their opinion.
