Apologies to Mick - but this is the final part of the 3 part series on the largest Evangelical group and its history of abuse and hiding it...of course.   Part 3:   http://digital.olivesoftware.com/Olive/ODN/SanAntonioExpressNews/Default.aspx

  Part DEUX:   The SBC is a shell game, meant to protect everyone that abuses others.   https://www.expressnews.com/news/investigations/article/Southern-Baptist-sexual-abuse-spreads-as-lea...     

 

   It is a lot like the AMA - where physicians can lose their license in State A and then move the State B and there is no requirement to ask why did you leave State A?     Or just like the Catholic Church and it's moving sexual predators from one place to another.    Shockingly, these are both ongoing processes.

Wonder how this will affect voting? Will it be enough (finally) to open moderates' eyes to the fact the far Right wingers in American politics are simply evil and they control the GOP?

   More than 220 evangelical leaders in the Southern Baptist sect were reported on by a joint investigation in Houston and San Antonio, TEXAS.   

The Houston Chronicle and San Antonio Express-News in an expansive investigation named 220 pastors, ministers, deacons, volunteers, Sunday school teachers and others who were found guilty of sexually abusing churchgoers over 20 years.

More than 250 have been charged. And roughly 380 Southern Baptist church leaders and volunteers have faced allegations of sexual misconduct involving more than 700 victims, the report found. That includes those who were convicted, credibly accused and successfully sued.

Some of the victims were molested repeatedly and some were as young as 3, according to the report.

Do wish people would stop going along with the Fundamentalist scam of calling themselves "evangelical" - it gives followers of Jesus a bad name.

 

Still, this does explain how the Fundie leadership can be so supportive of Der Trumper, the whoremongering, serial adulter, fraudster who hasn't set foot in a Church to actually worship in his entire life. He's one of them.

Southern Baptists have historically refused to report sexual abusers to any central authority, and to law enforcement.

Frequently the word as to what was happening - even within an individual church was hidden.  

Many times children who were victimized and abused were blamed and publicly shamed, and the criminal abuser "got off free"...

It's a very good thing to see this criminal conspiracy within the Southern Baptists finally getting the publicity that it should have gotten twenty to thirty years ago...
