Lutheran pastor, Rev. Nancy Kraft, defends a child molester and ignores the pain and suffering of child sexual abuse victims in Haiti
Judge denies bond for former N.C. pastor accused of committing sex acts with children
The first question we have for Rev. Nancy Kraft and members of the Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Charlotte, NC is "What About the Victims?"
What are you doing to provide comfort and support to the children who were sexually abused by Larry Bollinger in Haiti?
There may be other victims of Bollinger who will be afraid to come forward if all they see is the adults they love and respect praising Bollinger and calling or insinuating that the victims are liars.
Here are the facts.
Bollinger admitted to his psychotherapist that he sexually abused these children.
H ave you thanked the psychotherapist for stopping a child molester?
U.S. ICE/Homeland Security investigators conducted interviews with the victims in Haiti.
A grand jury has indicted Bollinger on charges of child sexual abuse.
Here's what you can do to help, Rev. Kraft:
1) Offer your public support to the children in Haiti who have come forward to report their abuse.
2) Tell them you are sorry for what Bollinger did to them. Thank them for their courage.
3) Make sure that everyone who ever worked with or had contact with Bollinger knows that he has been arrested for child sexual abuse.
4) Urge the parents of children who came in contact with Bollinger to talk to their children.
5) Urge anyone who has information or suspicions about Bollinger's past behavior to contact law enforcement authorities.

On Monday afternoon, a federal judge denied bond for a former
pastor accused of sexual acts with children, according to The Herald's news partner, WSOC-TV. Gaston County
About 25 to 30 supporters of Larry Bollinger came to federal court, including his wife. There were so many people that there weren’t enough seats in the courtroom.
Bollinger is accused of molesting four girls in
when he was a missionary there in 2009. Haiti
Prosecutors said two of the girls were as young as 11 and 12, and that he engaged in various sexual acts with them.
But it was Bollinger who came forward. His lawyers and friends said he sought counseling for sex addiction, told a psychotherapist what happened and that therapist went to authorities.
The pastor at the church he attends now said she's disappointed with the judge's decision Monday.
