This story about the US coach found guilty for abuse is shocking yet familiar. Abuse occurs. The leaders of the institution where the abuse occurs find out about it. They cover it up. Whitewashed.
A lot of incidents have poured out from the Catholic church where this has happened. Even my old bible college seems to have indulged in this. So too my daughter’s school. It’s obvious that something has gone wrong. Yet in the name of protecting status leaders of these institutions seem unable to fight the injustice. It is amazing what we can convince ourselves of. And sometimes we convince ourselves, it’s worth a whitewash.
