If kids got raped at Denny’s as often as they do in churches, angry mobs would burn ‘em all down. From MSNBC:
Police said a youth minister was arrested for allegedly having sex with more than one child. According to police, Marshal Seymour turned himself in Friday night after a warrant was issued for his arrest, WESH 2 News reported.
The Lakeland Police Department said the warrant came after an investigation that Seymour committed numerous sexual offenses while he was a volunteer youth minister at the First Baptist Church at the Mall in Lakeland.
Police said Seymour allegedly engaged in sexual activity with more than one minor and often paid the victims money for the sexual conduct or to keep quiet about the encounters that had occurred.
Yeah, yeah: churches do more than facilitate the sexual abuse of children. They do good works. Denny’s serves delicious Grand Slam breakfasts—and magic chocolate chip waffles that cure hangovers. And Denny’s would still be out of business—burned to the ground by angry mobs, shuttered by the outraged authorities—if kids got raped by Denny’s cooks and waitresses as often as kids are raped by ministers, priests, and youth pastors.
