“If they are unwilling to forgive, then God can’t forgive them,” Mack Allen Davis, 74, former youth minister at Lakeside Baptist Church in Birmingham, Ala., said in court May 15, according to the Birmingham News. “That's in the Bible.”
Davis, charged with 15 counts of child sexual abuse in three Alabama counties, pleaded guilty in December to six counts in Jefferson County Court in Birmingham. He was arrested after two adults came forward claiming Davis molested them 30 years ago.
The two men claimed the abuse occurred multiple times over a decade from the late 1970s through the late 1980s. They said they were abused in multiple locations, including Davis’ church office, Shocco Springs Baptist Camp in Talladega, Ala., and Ridgecrest Baptist Conference Center in North Carolina.
