Hepworth sexual abuse church, and some of these same men still attend the church's events."
The article added that "A spokesman for the church denied the allegations. He pointed to a 2009 statement in which 'The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' President Thomas S. Monson said members'should accept the fact that there is a good and loving God who has a plan and who lives and breathes our Savior Jesus Christ.' 'If that's not true,' Monson continues, 'we really don't believe there's any better way to begin our lives than through Christ.' "
A spokesperson for the church said its "religious freedom practices have not been modified in this case, and our church policies and practices have not changed."
The article also noted that while the case has been investigated by the local church's leadership "in light of the concerns about a church leader's continued relationship with a teen and other church members, church policy requires that allegations in these instances be investigated. We do not tolerate these kinds of acts."

Saints of Salt Lake City Church is headquartered in Provo, Utah. Since 2002, the group has been engaged in a controversial leadership race between a Mormon male leader, the Rev. Jeffrey R. Holland, and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir's singer, Elder Dallin H. Oaks. The LDS Church has faced questions and accusations of being a pedophile's church, while Oaks said he is a gay father and is seeking to clarify his Church's teachings on homosexual marriage.
