    Having held Townsend, Cloud, etal in high regard beginning in the long ago with the boundary ‘study’ also enjoying when program was on TBN, when I could catch it; i was a little let down
    yesterday (listening to 89.5 fm) when the advice to Texas sexually abused woman + her 2 sisters didn’t include advice to contact the police.

    Her father obviously didn’t intend to come clean about the younger sister’s abuse she’d just found out about….and all the crocodile tears in the world never solved anything. As an aside, we have a 7 yr old ‘in house’ and his immediate ‘sorry’ after known behavior trespass means little or nothing. So a practiced abuser, manipulator which you exposed him as won’t be gainsaid changing without accountability, to my thinking.

    As a person abused in childhood i feel allowed to speak in behalf of her & siblings that when the perp is still alive and can STILL offend then it’s way past time to call in the authorities….even if the woman he intends to marry that weekend is advised of his past. I mean; what if he’s even been perpetrating the same on others….the possibility seems a certainty to me.

    i realize by this page, now, that this was orginally aired some years ago…here’s hoping the caller took the necessary steps back then and that you can at least peruse it again and see the end game a little differently….methinks it’s called for.

    Thank you
