I’m so sorry you had to go through all this, Shana Carroll! My latest story is about the same topic, coincidentally enough.

The pastor mega church in Menlo Park CA hid the activities of a pedophile youth leader. When a trans man blew the whistle, the church tried to sweep it all under the rug.

As a former evangelical myself, I try to explore the fundamental problems in Evangelical culture that make these things possible. I’d be interested to know if you agree with my take.
