Jesus Forgave Stephen Collins, Everybody, It’s All Better Now!

As Stephen Collins continues his public tour to just explain to people that he only molested three kids, so it’s really not that bad, one of his victims has come forward and justifiably shat all over his claims that it was just a “spontaneous touching” and apologizing to them personally would just reopen old wounds and be more damaging to them. Stephen Collins is very concerned about them. The former children he molested. TMZ reports:

The woman who was just 10 when Stephen Collins molested her and placed her hand on his penis says she’s not buying his belated apology.
The woman — now in her 50s — is telling family members, “Stephen is minimizing the incident. It was not just a spontaneous touching … that aggression resulted in him ejaculating.”
She also scoffs at Collins decision not to apologize to her and another one of his victims, saying, “His assertion that he wanted to avoid reopening an old wound seems nonsensical to me.”
She doesn’t believe there are only 3 victims — the ones he confessed to on audio.

Except clearly this woman isn’t a God-fearing Christian like Stephen who’s already been forgiven by Jesus, so it’s practically a sin to keep bringing all of this up again. And in public of all places. This should be something he handles in private. He’s the real victim here. PEOPLE reports:

Collins, 67, answers, “No,” when asked whether he felt he was living a double life while portraying the wholesome minister and father on the popular ’90s WB show.
“No, because first of all I had put that stuff behind me,” he says. “I’m a flawed person.”
He then credits his faith with helping him heal after his mistakes.
“In the church, it’s actually one of the things I love about the church … Christ says in so many ways, ‘Bring me that which about you is broken. Bring it.’ And, most people are broken in some way,” he says.

Collins also tells Couric that he has worked hard to try and make amends in his private life – and wishes the story never went public.
“Most people either get to or have to or choose to hide it,” he says. “This came out. I didn’t choose this to come out. I didn’t want to have to deal with these things publicly. I had dealt with them very, very strongly and committedly in my private life. I think I’m a human being with flaws and I’ve done everything I can to address them.”

In Stephen Collins’ defense, why can’t people just let religion privately self-police the sexual abuse of children within its ranks? They’re really the only ones who understand the beautiful, forgiving nature of Jesus and making sure a sin never happens again while at the same time understanding that we’re all human, so Jesus will keep forgiving you again and again even if you have to move to a different country. When has that ever gone horribly wrong on a global, institutionalized scale? It’s practically unheard of.
