Mormon missionaries admitted to sexually abusing children — but the church didn’t refer them to police: leaked documents

Published

on

Newly-leaked documents show that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints internally investigated sex abuse allegations against missionaries and a stake president but did not refer them to law enforcement.

Salt Lake City’s KUTV reported that the MormonLeaks whistleblower site published a document from 2012 that detailed investigations into missionaries and one stake president.

The document, titled “Special Investigations and Projects,” appears to have been prepared by the Kirton McKonkie law firm. According to MormonLeaks founder Ryan McKnight, the document was given to him by a source who is “beyond reproach.”

In one case where a missionary confessed to kissing and fondling a 15-year-old, the document noted that LDS church was “reluctant” to report the individual.

“The missionary department is reluctant to send this elder home where he may face prosecution for a felony,” the document read.

In another case involving a missionary accused of sexually abusing a child in a foreign country, the missionary was sent back home — but the church “determined no action would be taken.”

KUTV reported that its reporters reached out to Kirton McKonkie and the LDS church but neither responded.

“Their top three candidates are white, career politicians in their 60s and 70s, which I have nothing against except they (Democrats) certainly do,” Conway reportedly told the crowd. “I don’t know why the heck the Democratic party electorate is so racist and sexist. I can’t figure it out.”

Betsy DeVos’ DOE threatens to cut university funding for positive portrayal of Islam

Published

on

The U.S Department of Education threatened to pull federal funding from a Middle East studies course jointly run by Duke University and the University of North Carolina because it portrays Islam too positively.

The DOE ordered the universities to change their program or lose its federal grant money. In a letter to UNC, the department criticized the program, arguing that topics like Iranian art and film have “little or no relevance” to the Middle East studies program. The letter also argues that the program “appears to lack balance” because its programs are not focused on the discrimination faced by “religious minorities in the Middle East," including Christians and Jews.
