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

Free Pass for Clergy Adultery
Husband Can't Sue Over Pastor's Affair With Wife | The Legal Intelligencer

 You really do not want to know how the LCMS, WELS, ELS, and CLC (sic) handle such issues.
"You have hurt the face of the synod." Bethany Seminary president.
Cover up? It never happened.
I don't know about that.
None of your business.
Who told you?

Husband Can't Sue Over Pastor's Affair With Wife | The Legal Intelligencer:

"According to the opinion, defendant Christopher McCloskey, who at the time was the pastor of a Baptist church in Newtown called Grace Point, began an affair with Laidlaw's wife—referred to only as "Jane Doe"—after providing religious marriage counseling to the couple.

Laidlaw alleged that, as a result of that counseling, McCloskey owed him a fiduciary duty. Laidlaw testified that he had placed his trust in McCloskey as a pastor and spiritual adviser, counselor and friend.
But Rau said allowing such a claim to go forward against either McCloskey or the church would be unconstitutional under the First Amendment's deference rule.

"A jury would have to interpret religious canons and beliefs to determine whether appellant's trust in his pastor reasonably established a fiduciary duty in the context of their religion," Rau said. "Such an intrusion by the courts into religious doctrine and practice is constitutionally prohibited.""
