Church turned Capill in
It has been revealed that Capill's local church leader handed him in when a parishioner was told of the abuse.
Capill and his wife - although not all his kids - left the church last July and haven't been going to a regular church since. Perhaps it is an extension of the non-accountability Capill had with Christian leaders while head of the CHP. Perhaps it is also because there is no church in the country compatible with Capill's belief system.
Meanwhile Merepeka Raukawa-Tait felt " quite sick" when she heard of the abuse, which occurred while she was working with Capill as deputy leader of the party. She said what every church leader is thinking at the moment:
"If you’re going to take the moral high ground then for goodness’ sake make sure there’s nothing in your own behaviour that could let you down."
