Response to Nasty Jack (Original post)

6. What I'm really wondering

is how did they seem to know to take Josh to THAT one particular state trooper who, as we learned, was sent to prison for child pornography charges? How did it happen that one of the main figures in their "religious" circle of acquaintances ALSO was engaged in child sexual abuse? It seems like it's almost too much of a coincidence that they would happen to choose to rely on these particular individuals to "assist" them with their situation with Josh. Either that or their whole circle of acquaintances is suspect, which may well be the case too. Because of their religious beliefs, which always seemed strange to me in the first place, they decided to handle the situation "in-house" but in doing so, they perpetuated/enabled the abuse to continue and even now that this is all coming out now and people are being (rightfully) critical of them for how they (and the whole system) handled the situation with Josh, they are continuing to minimize what happened and deflect blame. Even the victims have been brainwashed to believe that nothing serious happened.
