Yikes. The actions by the Church, in this case, are so horrific... members should listen to this.
Good faith does not require evidence, but it also does not turn a blind eye to that evidence. Otherwise, it becomes misplaced faith.

I'm reading about some of this case and the stuff that came up during it.

The Jensen family (parents of the molester and defendants in this case) has a history of asking for collection money from members as investments in to business ventures that they were doing. These businesses either quickly fail or never even get off the ground, and the investment money is gone. A number of LDS families in the area were victims of the fraud. So the family has a history of being con men. How Mormon on them.

The stake president, Steven Grow (another defendant) was involved somehow, but I can't tell if he was in on the scam or if he was another victim.
