  1. What is this? The police apparently had sufficient evidence to charge the pastors but now they withdrawing the charges because the virtual complainant had a change of heart. Isn't that perverting the course of justice? Can the virtual complainant withdraw charges? Isn't that the role of the police and the DPP? Not sure that this could happen in the USA. Something is wrong with our legal system and because it is in shambles crime will escalate. Smh.

  2. I feel it for the accused men and the woman because they all know who is responsible for this mess. He's short and has a short winni.

  3. The Lady knows what she was doing. Taking out the rage of her husband on others was not the answer. I hope the two Pastors and their family find it in their heart to forgive her. Pastors need to be more careful with venerable woman in the church. Not because you are a Pastor things will not happen. Especially Adventist Pastors. I know one of the Pastors and never for a moment I believe he was guilty. Let the healing process began.

  4. How you feel just destroying the men name and careers just so and then drop the charges. Is that how it works?? Life isn't fare.

    • how about u ask the pastors if they threatened her or paid her to keep shut... stop with the bashing...they're not the victim

      (1)(2)
      • How do u know who the victims are? Do u have the facts of the situation.. Without the facts u sound like an empty vessel making useless noise.

  5. No SDA is happy today.. Three reasons...1. The entire church was brought into an unnecessary Spotlight 2. The honor and integrity of the office of pastor shattered because of swell headed primates 3. If there was no truth to the allegation why have the men lose so much and if there was truth why not continue legal proceedings. Dropping the case does not undo the damage #sadreality I hope they can recover. Forgive her, Forgive the men and everyone move on

  6. It was withdrawn, that does not mean it did not happen, you idiots. Can you say hush money, pay off.

    • You are naive to think that the prosecution would drop a case if the evidence was strong. The clergymen will have to count their losses and move forward

    • Hush money!!! To shut up a liar. More like guilty conscious and not able to sleep at nights.

      There should be a law where persons who make such false accusations are arrested. To many lives have been distroyed for things like this to be swept under the rug.

      (11)(4)
    • Doesn't mean that It happened either! Those who are privy to the information surrounding the accusations are fully aware that the accusations were false and fueled by malice and pure evil. Assuming that hush money was given and a payoff was done with absolutely no evidence is what is Naive, and ridiculous! I am happy that the truth I unfolding. It's just sad that women have now resorted to gruesome crimes like rape as a crutch for their malicious intentions towards men. In so doing, they make it more difficult for genuine cases to be taken seriously. Stop crying wolf!

      • You're sick to believe that it did. Stop making emotional baseless statements. and i dont think anyone in this forum has venerated rape. What i gather from most statements is that the truth is what matters! Stop ascribing portfolios to people that they don't deserve... Learn to speak only on the facts! or dont speak at all

        (4)(0)
      • O and by the way. There were no rape charges. But i guess ure riding on the stereotypes. typical! Ure asking for the bashing to stop but u didnt ask for it to stop when they were arrested falsely! U r the prime example of hypocrisy.

    • She was just lying... ppl saw her n her husband arguing the night she claimed to have been at the pastors home ... when she finish age telling everybody she n her husband never argued.

  10. This is sad. Crimes like Rape, murders unlawful connection, indecent assault etc. will always be on the rise in St. Lucia . When a crime is
    committed against someone it will be reported to the police. They ( the police ) will do all in their power to
    see the case reach the court and suddenly the complainant withdraws the charges
    what is wrong with us as a people, and then we turn around and blames the police for not doing enough

    (13)(1)
    • U not saying what if the men were falsely accused? U need to be objective in your analysis.

      (9)(2)
    • In situations like these we cannot be emotional. Every decision must be made solely on the facts..Currently the facts are the case is withdrawn and in order for the prosecution to do so they must have valid reasons. Society needs to be objective because when men are victims of malice no one cares.. but when women are victims everyone starts rioting. im on the side of truth.. We may never know

      (16)(3)
  11. i didn't expect anything different. Like all churches they are hiding

    (8)(9)
    • i am JERRY SPRINGER

      lol

  12. I didnt realise you could drop a complaint against someone once the persons had been charged and it had reached the courts? How does this happen?
