  1. I do believe that scripture calls us to hold one another accountable.
    Matthew 23:13
    “But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in."

    The law is to be called to verify each accusation! But if they aren't called, if the victim is not believed (though a child), if the perpetrator continues to hurt others, exactly who wins?
    I can only pray that the Baptist Convention responds to the truth and make changes to keep the vulnerable safe from those who would victimize them! Thereby honoring our LORD!

  2. Matthew 7:13-14
     13“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

  3. ". . . a few bad apples?" PLEASE step up, be honest and transparent. And accept responsibility. That goes for Southern Baptists, Catholics and the men who try to change the narrative. And Mothers, grab that frying pan, that rolling pin, anything and everything to make sure the narrative remains in your hands and not buried by the church.

  4. Is this guy saying he wants the Southern Baptist Church to look into the crimes committed by the Southern Baptist church? That's about as effective as cops investigating themselves.

  5. The Church…..any church….all churches…… are the biggest closet full of pedophiles and the enablers that cover their crimes

  6. These are the folks that voted for a person that grabbed women by the *** and bragged about it to other men who laughed so this is no big surprise!

  7. LOL , ok on one hand its shocking because it was left as is for so long on the other they should be applauded for taking action now ? No man , the walls were coming in and they had no choice . There be no shelter for sexual predators and pedophiles. Dont you find it Ironic how all these southern religious factions scream about democrats ( not saying they are saints )being this and that and its almost always them who are doing the devils work . The truly horrifying things .

  8. It's like saying there's only a few bad apples in police force. If there's White's involved, unfortunately, its all rotten

  9. "Abuse is one of the most underreported crimes" Yeah it's because of their culture of shaming the victims and forgiving the abusers. All guilty and complicit leaders must be brought to court. And people need to stop supporting this organization.

  10. This is why they support Trump. It is only about power and money. Finally exposed. So much for the evangelical doctrine and practice.

  11. SBC-anon: A secret cabal of religious scumbags who practiced pedophilia and sexual assault on children over decades and aided in the subsequent cover-up and intimidation of victims to prevent discovery. This one's not a ridiculous conspiracy theory.

  12. Sometimes, I run across something that makes me wonder if ridding myself of religion was the right call…this isn't one of those times.

  13. When a group of high level unaccountable white men's club (including those egregious lawyers) start to evade, ignore and hide even small infractions and complaints – and refuse to provide an investigative arm on behalf of victims and fails to rebuke and take action on evil, this happens. This happens in Silicon Valley, in News Rooms, Hollywood (worst), Davos, everywhere power and behind door activities allow powerful white men to secretly engage in harm against others with impunity.

  14. Nobody in the US will ever do anything to stop the clergy from raping and abusing children. God very clearly and openly promotes pedophilia and child abuse.

  15. I'm a soft atheist or agonist-atheist, but not an anti-theist. I was raised a Roman Catholic, and although I agree that religion does harm in our society it also does good. Like everything, I've seen in our world. I can't speak to theological issues as to whether some God might be perfect or not, but anything to do with people, like any church here on Earth, it's not going to be perfect. Would the world be better without 'religion', however you might define religion, as some anti-theist might argue? I don't know, but whatever moral code that one appeals to it seems extremely unlikely that no one, or no organization, is going to be able to entirely enforce that code on everyone, or even themselves as individuals… even if they should try, another question in, and of, itself. We're human, we're not perfect. Unfortunately, we appear to live in a world of human-generated evil of free will and also natural evil. Here perhaps it's a bit of both. In any case, it seems to be a complex, imperfect world from where I don't see any escape from that unfortunate reality. Let's hope the Southern Baptist Convention will take concrete steps to enable them to handle these kinds of unfortunate circumstances better in the future.

  16. There is no statues for weed weed people we the people don't go for your statues do we the people have to bring Justice against two people because of justice system is broken

  17. This is awful. Haven't they learned from the Catholic church. The cover up is disgusting. Has anyone not read the verse about it would have been better for someone to hang a millstone around their neck and drown themselves than hurt one of Gods children?

  18. Leave Babylon and churches that worship the sungod not Christ, regardless what people say. These people cannot be saved if they remain inside. Christ in the flesh even said to come out. REV 18:1-6
