The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints stretches across the world with over 16 million members and more than 30,000 congregations. Though the LDS Church claims they care for the poor and needy, they've repeatedly failed to care for innocent children victimized by sexual abuse within the Mormon Church's organizations. For nearly a century the Mormon Church quieted sexual abuse crimes within their walls. Reports from victims reveal that LDS Church elders, members, and volunteers repeatedly abused children under their care. Instead of seeking help for victims and holding predators accountable, LDS officials hid abuse cases through quiet dismissals or clergy transfers. Instead of trying to protect the children under their care, elders protected the reputation of the Church.
