“He started to stroke her arm,” the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting explains. “He slid his hands up, under her shirt and bra, and groped her. He stuck his tongue in her mouth. Then, he forced his hands down her pants, underneath her underwear, and penetrated her with his finger.She begged her pastor to stop and tried to force him off, quietly. She remembers not wanting to awaken [her friend].”
Johnson eventually did get off the woman after she begged him to stop, although she tells the KCIR that she was still traumatized by the encounter. She began attending therapy sessions, and she even showed KCIR her therapist’s notes that “outline how an alleged sexual assault pushed an honor roll student and drum major at Louisville Male High School into despair. She had signs of post-traumatic stress disorder.”
The church does great work, she says. The Pope is a great man. Why would journalists be skeptical and ask questions?
She points us to the door.
“We know what you’re going to do,” she says. “And you’re going to have blood on your hands. I’m telling you now, it’s the word of the Lord.”
According to court documents obtained by the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting, the alleged molestation took place on New Year's Eve in 2012. The alleged victim, who was 17 at the time, told authorities that she was staying in a living area of the Heart of Fire City Church where Johnson was pastor, when Johnson, who had been drinking a lot, approached her, kissed her and fondled her under her clothes.
The woman said she reported the incident but Louisville police closed the case without charges.

Your comments remind me of this from the KCIR article on Johnson ('The Pope's Long Con'):
"The church does great work, she says. The Pope is a great man. Why would journalists be skeptical and ask questions?
She points us to the door.
“We know what you’re going to do,” she says. “And you’re going to have blood on your hands. I’m telling you now, it’s the word of the Lord.”"
Are they your words?

As I've said before. People kill themselves for odd reasons. His faith would forbid it, but I doubt he was thinking clearly.

I didn't know what you were talking about (still don't) but did you notice the letterboard behind the church reporter? Same as the note?
