I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4

Child Victims Partly To Blame Say Catholic Bishop.
Different from WELS Sharia Law?
LCMS Policy Is To Destroy Evidence

This bishop was found dead  before his testimony was taken -
about his own crimes against children.

UPDATE: The bishop issued a public letter in response to this story.
SYRACUSE, N.Y. – The victims of child-molesting priests are partly to blame for their own abuse, the bishop of Syracuse said in a sworn deposition that revealed his views on the church's sex abuse scandal.

Bishop Robert Cunningham testified in a 2011 deposition in response to a federal lawsuit filed by a man who said a priest in the Syracuse diocese sexually abused him as a child.
The man's lawyer asked Cunningham whether, in the eyes of the church, a child molested by a priest has committed a sin.

"The boy is culpable," Cunningham said Oct. 14, 2011, according to a transcript of the deposition.

His sworn testimony provides rare insight into the thoughts of the highest-ranking Catholic in Syracuse about one of the most troubling chapters in the church's history.
Cunningham believes no child is responsible for being sexually abused, a diocese official said this week. It's unfair to use the deposition to characterize his position otherwise, the official said.

I had to add the evil Stephan and the excommunicated Loehe (boo hiss),
insert Knapp, and put a proper burglars's mask on Walther.

GJ - When an authority figure (teacher, doctor, therapist, minister, coach, priest) uses his or her position to take advantage of another person, this excuse if often used. 

According to WELS Sharia law, the woman or girl is always guilty. This is no different from the decadent Roman Catholic policy of protecting "a son of Holy Mother Church." Besides, it is easier to defenestrate and slander a woman than to admit the son of Holy Mother Church is an adulterous scoundrel willing to betray his wife, his children, and his Savior?

The LCMS has never abandoned its policy of lying about the facts, hiding the truth, inventing sainthood stories, and excommunicating victims from its history. Stephan's adultery was the "fault of his wife," according to a confidential statement by CFW Walther, confidentially published in a book with world-wide circulation (Servant of the Word). But Walther organized a mob at a time convenient to CFW rather than confront Bishop Stephan - according to Scripture - with his crimes. How perverted, to blame Mrs. Stephan for her husband spreading syphilis to her and their children, and then to the young women in the cult.
The LCMS cannot even tell the truth about its birth
as a Pietistic cult run by an abusive, dictatorial bishop
who was propped up the the clergy who became Missouri's founding fathers.
