Sexually abused?

A priest in Sweden has been accused of sexually taking advantage of a woman. She was 16 years old when they started to have sex and it apparently ended 6 years later. Before I write anything else; I have not met any of the involved and I have no idea what has been said or done in this case and I want to make this clear before I trash this woman and the news reporters, because if I’m wrong, I apologize in advance, which is something I never do otherwise.

What I’m getting at is that this woman was legal to have sex with (the legal age for consensual sex in Sweden is 15 years) and she apparently had sex with this man throughout the years and as far as I can see or read about it there is no force involved. But still she choice to press charges, why? You might claim that the priest took advantage of his position and lured this poor young woman to sex at the beginning, but that’s sounds more or less like bull to me. If this female can point out that she was deeply religious and this priest somehow used this as a way in (so to speak) okay, I might get it. But otherwise shout up and stop pressing charges against someone who made you happy. Yes, happy, no one can tell me that a young woman not being forced and staying with the same lover for 6 years doesn’t feel something good, emotionally and/or sexually. And if this is the case, what the hell is the news? Why are the journalists making this into a “religious thing” except for selling newspapers? He – the journalist – should go after the girl, but that’s not really PC now is it? If this is only a way to trash some poor priest it is the worst kind of journalism and I truly hope this reporter burn in the deepest corner of hell*. Journalist like that – no matter what is true in this case – are the worst bloody idiots around. And that girl, if she didn’t get abused or forced, she should burn right beside him.

*I’m not religious, but sometimes religions have the best punishments…
