VIDEO: Congregation Shocked After Woman Accuses Alleged Rapist Pastor on Pulpit
A Colorado woman left a church speechless after she called out her alleged rapist during a prayer meeting in church
The woman, McKenna Denson, stood on the pulpit and said the pastor raped her in the 80s in a basement.
She warned the congregation that high-ranking officials in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are “covering a sexual predator that lives in your [congregation].”
“For the atonement to take place, we have to be accountable for what we do,” Denson said as a man attempted to remove her from behind the lectern. “In order to keep the church safe, we need to hold sexual predators accountable.” she said.
The man in question is 85-year-old Joseph L. Bishop who is the former president of a Mormon missionary training center (MTC) in Provo, Utah.
Denson came out to accuse her alleged rapist during a monthly “fast and testimony” meeting in which congregants are encouraged to give short speeches about their spiritual journey.
Denson stepped up and started calling out the pastor, at this point, one of the church officials came to accost her in a bid to get her to stop speaking. She said that he was getting in her personal space and that she still had “more to say”
