The ELCA and Sexual Abuse

It would be a good thing if other churches were to learn from the Catholic experience of the past several years about dealing with sexual abuse by clergy.

The ELCA apparently has not learned, in the case of a pastor who died in 1997. Both the South Dakota Synod and the ELCA national office refuse to tell reporters what churches he served in his career (a matter of public record, I would think), or how many victims have come forward.
