At the beginning of May 2019 two mothers of children who were sexually abused by convicted paedophile, Michael Jensen, appeared back in their former ward in Martinsburg, West Virginia to warn the congregation that the children there are not safe.
This is a community, they argued, that circled their wagons around the perpetrator and their leaders. This is a community that made sinners out of those who pointed out the sin. This is a community that never apologised for their role in creating a climate that turned a church against the victims and their families.
Alice Koivu and Kelly Plante join me to talk about their journey back (as uninvited guests with a message) to the LDS Church pulpit.
