Bishop Thompson last year told the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse his efforts to expose a decades-old culture of abuse and cover-ups had led to a concerted push to get rid of him.
For decades GLBT folks have been falsely accused of being a threat to children. They have been reported to have an agenda to groom future GBLT people by taking advantage of children. A reality TV Show family, the Duggars, have been influential of late in promoting those falsehoods about GLBT folks. They were actively a part of the successful campaign to overthrow an anti-discrimination law in Fayetteville AR. Yet, all the while they damaged the reputations of GLBT folk, they tried to conceal their own dark secret of a child predator in their own home.
