The timing of the statement on how TSCC deals with child abuse is very interesting. It seems to have been published on the same day as the news broke about Darran Scott. They MUST have been working on the document beforehand. The question is, why were they working on it? Did they know about the story before it hit the news, or were they working on it in response to a different story, but decided to release it early?
As I pointed out on the other thread, a positive news story about Darren Scott has been taken down from the mormonnewsroom web site, which I don't think is justified given their new statement. I believe they took down the story to protect themselves, not the victim. I think they should add a paragraph to their BS story about how they deal with child abuse, stating that covering up child abuse and protecting the reputation of TSCC is by far their number one priority.
Producing a fluff piece about how they should (but don't) deal with child abuse is one thing, but trying change history crosses the line into a cover up. The fact is that Darren Scott produced movies that TSCC was proud of, and they gave him a calling as a stake high councillor, indicating that TSCC trusted him. TSCC should admit that they made a mistake instead of pretending it never happened.
