We briefly discussed the accusations against Lou Beres, previous leader of the Oregon Christian Coalition and a long-time anti-gay activist, relating to inappropriate behavious with under-age girls. These allegations were confirmed here by his nephew, Rich Galat.
It now appears that Galat and other family members have had their charges verified. According to the Portland Mercury, Beres has admitted to police that he “had sexually touched his sister-in-law in the 1960s when she was a teen, and two friends of his daughters—one incident was in 1976 or ’77, according to the report, and the other was unspecified.”
We wish his victims and other family members all the best and hope that this revelation will help in the healing and full recovery from this man’s violations.
