WE WANT THE VICTIMS IN HAITI TO KNOW THEY ARE NOT ALONE.
Rev. Bollinger served as Executive Director of the Village of Hope from January 2004 to decemner 2009. It is horrifying to realize that this dangerous child molester had unlimited access to poor, orphaned and vulnerable, Haitan children for six years.
When credible allegations of child sexual abuse were first made known to the Board of Directors of the Lazarus Project, board members did the right thing. Rev. Bollinger was removed immediately from his position with the school.
SECRETS DON"T PROTECT CHILDREN - Unfortunately, the Lazarus Project's board members kept the real reason for Rev. Bollinger's removal a secret.
Rev. Bollinger's bosses at the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America also kept the child sexual abuse allegations a secret.
Neither party warned communities in Haiti and the United States that Rev. Bollinger was removed from his position in Haiti due to credible and substantiated allegations of child sexual abuse.
It's been almost two and one-half years between Rev. Bollinger's dismissal from the Village of Hope and his arrest by U.S. investigators on two counts of child sexual abuse.
Where has Rev. Bollinger been during this time?
Have innocent children been warned and protected?
And now, ELCA priests like Rev. Nancy Kraft and members of the Trinity Lutheran Church in Charlotte, NC are doing everything in their power to defend and protect the child molester and are all but outright calling the litlle girls liars who have reported their sexual been sexual abuse by Rev. Bollinger.
