You don’t want to read this article, but you really must. I am a pastor, and the safety of our children is of paramount importance to me, and I am sure it is to you as well. “In Plain View” will help you understand how a pedophile operates as a predator, and knowing this information can keep you from being duped. The average pedophile is not some dirty old man luring in children with candy. He is a doctor, or teacher, or a member of the clergy. He is a nice family man who looks humble and gracious and serving. In reality, he is ingratiating himself to you so that you will feel safe around him, so you will feel safe with your children around him. Seriously, read this article in the New Yorker in order to equip yourself to take care of your children.
The Mind of a Pedophile
Brad is the pastor of a Baptist church in a small town in Alabama. Brad has a lovely wife, two children, two dogs, a cat, a turtle, and five bee hives. Besides the incredible fact that he managed to persuade his wife to marry him, he is proud that he served six years in the Army National Guard, managed to graduate college with an English Lit. degree, graduate seminary, and finish the original Bard's Tale as a youngster by making maps on graph paper.
