While I’m not at all impressed with Hollywood’s latest campaign against sexual harassment called #metoo (due to its clear virtue-signaling while living under a shadow of duplicity and hypocrisy by many who have become voices in the industry, who had to have known about Harvey Weinstein’s (WH) sexual harassment of young starlets. It defies belief that these people who now claim to want women to feel empowered to come forward that, because of their own powerful positions in Hollywood, had absolutely no clue as to the true character of WH). However, the movement itself has obviously prompted more individuals to come forward and some of them are accusing known pastors of sexual impropriety.

In an unfolding case of sexual attack going back 20 years, a woman just recently provided details of her own situation wherein a man, because of his position of authority, and the very likelihood that she, as a 17-year-old, looked up to him and quite possibly even felt some attraction to him, succumbed to his suggestion that veered them off the path into illicit and illegal sexuality.

I first heard about this at the Christian Today website, in which some of the details were expressed. There, we learn, that very recently, Teaching Pastor Andy Savage admitted to the congregation at Highpoint Church in Memphis, TN, that he had engaged in some form of sexual liaison with a then 17-year-old. Apparently, it came out due to the fact that this now nearly 40 year-old woman, empowered by the #metoo campaign, contacted Savage via email. In it, she asked Savage if he remembered what had occurred some 20 years prior? She never received a response, but shortly after that, Savage read a letter to his congregation admitting that he had made a mistake and – he said – had done everything he could at the time to make up for it, including apologize to the young woman, her parents, and the congregation of the church at that time (then known as Woodlands Parkway Baptist Church; now Stonebridge Church in The Woodlands, Texas).

The young woman actually went to the pastoral team at the time of the incident and spoke with Larry Cotton, who was associate pastor at Woodlands then. He listened to her and then asked this question, “So you’re telling me you participated?” The hard reality is that even if she fully participated, what Andy Savage did was against all existing laws and had this been reported to the police then he would have been arrested because the woman – Jules Woodson – was underage at the time. There is no question that what occurred broke Texas Penal Code Chapter 5. (22.011), especially as it applies to clergy.

The upshot is that Andy Savage was eventually asked to leave, but according to Woodson...
