ONE of many disturbing things that happened to my son by himself behind closed doors with our bishop (besides the fact that he was even in there, as I had told the bishop it wasn’t allowed just weeks earlier after my experience with this and other bishops)
My son was 11, nearing his 12th birthday and he was asked if he was ever asked to change his baby sister’s diapers. He had been. I was going through a divorce, he was 2nd child of 6. He babysat at times and I asked all the kids to help in that task.
The bishop shamed him. Told him I should never put him in that situation. And DISGUSTINGLY asked him if it triggered “sexual feelings” when he wiped her.. he came home distraught and asked that I never ask him again. He was embarrassed! AND I felt ashamed that I ever asked him to change her in the first place.
I distinctly remember asking him if he had been uncomfortable before the interview and he said no, it was a chore like any other chore he didn’t really want to help in. THE BISHOP MADE IT SEXUAL! What a sick & twisted process we unnecessarily went though.
