Investigation finds decades of abuse in Southern Baptist Convention

Postby Henry Vilas » Mon Feb 11, 2019 10:46 am

It isn't just Catholic priests who are guilty of abusing children.

The ethics leader of the Southern Baptist Convention has promised to encourage reforms that protect children after a sweeping investigation published Sunday found more than 700 victims of sexual misconduct by church leaders or volunteers.

In total, the Houston Chronicle and San Antonio Express-News compiled more than 380 cases over the last 20 years of church leaders and volunteers who have been charged with sex crimes. Most are now in prison or are registered sex offenders, according to the report.


Those are only the reported cases of sexual abuse. Probably just the tip of the iceberg.
