It's not just the Catholic church that seems to be getting called out for child abuse. At least not in recent times, it's becoming more apparent that the Mormon church is getting named in Child Abuse cases more and more. Previously, there have been plenty of child molestation cases in the Mormon church including accusations towards former president Gordon Hinkley. However, no one made Mormon molestation jokes like late night did about the Catholic church.
However, now the tables are turning towards the Mormon church and the Boy Scouts, two factions named in a recent lawsuit filed by men that have stated that both factions ignored the fact that they were complaining about a youth leader's abuse.
The Mormon church and Boy Scouts of America were named as defendants in lawsuits Monday claiming childhood sexual abuse by youth leaders decades ago.
Alleged victims filed suits against both organizations in San Francisco and Seattle, and against the church alone in Portland, Ore.
The plaintiffs are all represented by Portland attorney Kelly Clark, who has brought similar suits against the church and the Boy Scouts in the past.
In the suit filed in San Francisco Superior Court, three brothers claim the church ignored their complaints about being molested by their Silicon Valley Boy Scout and Mormon youth leader in the 1970s and 1980s.
