My Interaction with a Victim Who Alleges He Was Raped by Mega-Church Pastor Charles Schmitt as a Child

Last week, I had an extended conversation with a man who alleged he was raped by mega-church pastor Charles Schmitt as a child.  He shared the horrid details of his story with me.  I found him believable.  

During our conversation, I asked if he was willing to tell his story.  At the time, he was not interested.  Afterward, he changed his mind.  

He emailed me on Thursday and is now asking, “So if there is anyone who has been raped by Charles as a minor please speak up and contact Brent.”  Here is our correspondence.  I have redacted his name and that of a third party participant.

Subject: Hello Brent this is [redacted] responding to you to send you a anonymous letter about Charles Schmitt.  I talked with you and [redacted] on the phone last week. 

I trust you to keep my name confidential.  I give you permission to post this letter on any site that you think it will be the most effective.  I would like to aid in stopping Charles from being a pastor again. 

Letter addressing Charles Schmitt being a pastor! 

Charles should never [be] a pastor.  He is a rapists and a child molester.  Charles started raping me at the age of seven and raped me multiple times. 

Charles is a predator of the worst kind.  He is a ravenous wolf in sheeps clothing.  He will devour a boy whole and spit out nothing but the bones.  Nothing left of their soul. 

So Charles says he loves the church and people.  Well I’m saying there is another side of him.  A child molester. 

So if there is anyone who has been raped by Charles as a minor please speak up and contact Brent.

Here is my response.

Thank you [redacted] for sharing your account with me on the phone last week.  And thank you for giving me permission to share your story.  I hope others will contact me as a result.  Charles is a predator, and he has preyed upon children, not just young men.  He should have been permanently removed from ministry decades ago.  He must be stopped.  I will certainly keep your name confidential.  I’ll let you know when and where I post your letter. 
 
May the grace, mercy, and peace of Christ fill your heart!

In March of this year, I wrote a post entitled, “Charles Schmitt’s 50 Plus Year History of Homosexual Sex with Young Men While Married and in Ministry”.  Schmitt should have been permanently removed from ministry decades ago.  He is a “homosexual pervert” as Larry Tomczak told me years ago.  But he is more, he is a predator.  He has preyed upon boys and young men alike.  All the while his wife, his family, and his staff have covered up for him.  

This childhood victim says, “I would like to aid in stopping Charles from being a pastor again. … So if there is anyone who has been raped by Charles as a minor please speak up and contact Brent.” 

Please do contact me and that includes those who aren’t minors but have been preyed upon by Charles Schmitt.  I will keep your name confidential.  We must all work together to make sure Schmitt is never allowed to pastor again and those who have covered up his diabolical sins are held to account.
