This story is about my daughter and it only happened a couple of years ago.
My 18 year old daughter decided she wanted to follow some of her sisters examples and decided she would like to go on a mission. She felt the need to speak to the bishop as she had some inappropriate experiences that were a bit touchy feely with a boy that she felt the need to confess. The bishop asked her what she wanted to see him about, to which she replied that there were things she felt she needed to confess… he then asked if it was things involving a boy! She agreed yes it had been, he then said “so it’s sex” she told him or wasn’t sex…he then said, “what was it then, oral, anal…” and according to my daughter listed other things she had never heard of!!! She was rightly shocked and felt uncomfortable, and told him that she didn’t want to say anything more. The bishop said that she would still need to come and tell him what had happened and that he felt she was lying!!
My daughter came home from that interview and told me that she didn’t feel the church was right for her. She left that week and never went back! She never told us for a few months after it had happened!!
After I became aware of this, I told our Stake President who said, “Oh dear, I think I may need to train him on how to talk to youth”
I am still astounded that his happened. The bishop never tried to reach out to my daughter after she left his office that Sunday and never went back to church, I’m sure he thinks she is guilty of something and doesn’t want to face him
I will never let a bishop interview my kids ever again.
