I do not find it OK...

That Paige Patterson is being "drawn and quartered" over what he said. Talk about an inquisition....the #MeToo movement has gone too far! What about the girl's decision to accept his advice? She did not have to--she could have still reported it. Even as Christians we are still inherently broken and because of that we live in a broken world. What was it Jesus said? Something along the lines of "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone!" And what about justice with mercy? In Jesus Christ, Son of God and Son of Man, God's justice and mercy came together in one explosive act of holy love when God not only chose to become what he created but went on to pay for our sins in a violent death on the cross. And what about forgiveness? What was it Jesus said while hanging on the cross? Something along the lines of "Father forgive them for they know not what they do". Bottom line is, we both claim to be United Methodists. However, we obviously have fundamentally different understandings of what that means.
