To be delivered to: Pat Robertson, Chairman, Christian Broadcasting Network
From at least 1996 to 2012, the Christian Broadcasting Network had a teaching paper on its Website which suggested victims of sexual abuse and molestation could "consent" to what happened to them and "allow (themselves) to be molested"--thus suggesting it is somehow the victims' fault. It also told anyone who suspected child abuse to talk to a minister before doing anything else, even though virtually every state requires those who suspect abuse to report it.
The paper was taken down in March 2012, but CBN and its longtime chairman, Pat Robertson, have yet to apologize for it. We're calling for Robertson to issue a full apology for spitting in the face of victims of sexual abuse.
