I don't think that you are giving churches a fair shake by lumping all protestants together and saying that there is no one who share's Mike's religious beliefs that he could turn to for help. I don't know the churches he was associated with, but given the geography of his arrest I would say I know nothing about them or their pastors. Sometimes it might take some time to find the right pastor to talk to, but there are a lot of pastors out there who will listen without judging and encourage a person to get proper help. There are pastors and churches who accept that we are all human and make mistakes and have issues that are outside of the will of God. Although my issues are different than Mike's, I have had the benefit of finding good counsel with pastors. I also know of situations where pastors have handled situations poorly, but that is the problem of having humans as pastors, because no matter what we want to think of them, they are human.
