On June 20, 2019 in Salt Lake City, Utah,
Sam Young of Protect Every Child was there to fly our banner upon the shoulders of some of today’s modern heroines and heroes in the fight to protect children. No children should have to suffer as the LDS Johnson siblings did. No children should have to suffer as the LDS children in West Virginia did.
“No Crime In Sin is an empowering documentary following three siblings as they confront their abusive father and fight to change the current reporting system within religious organizations that shield sexual predators from facing criminal prosecution.”
This picture was taken just before Sam Young
headed to the Houston airport to attend
the Salt Lake City premiere of No Crime In Sin.
He related the following exchange to his friends on Facebook:
Two of my grown daughters happened to be at the house when my wife took this picture. I asked, “Is this just silly?”
DAUGHTER: No dad, it’s awesome. It takes courage to wear a cape. Awareness will be raised and discussions will start.
PATTY: I think it’s great and not as embarrassing as some things you’ve done.
ME: Like what?
PATTY: When you stripped at temple square and washed yourself on camera.
I thought, “Oh yeah. I was figuratively washing myself of the filthy practices that my church condoned behind closed doors with children. And they still condone the nasty sexual probing that has harmed thousands upon thousands of kids. Yeah I’ll wear a damn cape if it has a chance of saving another child from overt or covert abuse.”
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Sign the new Petition:
Climb a mountain, hilltop or driveway. Unfurl a banner and share it.
Come to the March for the Children on October 5, 2019 in Salt Lake City.
THIS IS THE BIG ONE.
If we have 5,000 marchers, the national media will be all over it.
Institutions will be warned. Huge awareness will be raised.
Children will be protected. Past victims will take solace.
