20 years, 700 victims: Southern Baptist sexual abuse spreads…

Southern Baptist sexual abuse spreads as leaders resist reforms

http://archive.today/2019.02.10-194428/https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/investigations/article/Southern-Baptist-sexual-abuse-spreads-as-leaders-13588038.php

Thirty-five years later, Debbie Vasquez's voice trembled as she described her trauma to a group of Southern Baptist leaders. She was 14, she said, when she was first molested by her pastor in Sanger, a tiny prairie town an hour north of Dallas. It was the first of many assaults that Vasquez said destroyed her teenage years and, at 18, left her pregnant by the Southern Baptist pastor, a married man more than a dozen years older. In June 2008, she paid her way to Indianapolis, where she and others asked leaders of the Southern Baptist Convention and its 47,000 churches to track sexual predators and take action against congregations that harbored or concealed abusers. Vasquez, by then in her 40s, implored them to consider prevention policies like those adopted by faiths that include the Catholic Church.

"Listen to what God has to say," she said, according to audio of the meeting, which she recorded. "… All that evil needs is for good to do nothing. … Please help me and others that will be hurt." Days later, Southern Baptist leaders rejected nearly every proposed reform. The abusers haven't stopped. They've hurt hundreds more.

Why are they called Southern Baptists? Are there Southern Baptist churches in other states? Are there Southern Baptist churches in Canada? What about Northern Baptist? Western Baptist?

It's disgusting but overblown and mistargeted.

These big names they throw out are political targets with weak accusations, all of them associated with the conservative resurgence. Frank Page is the only one with any substance and he resigned himself, totally unrelated to any public scandal.

>Leaders resist reforms

Reforms from who, the outside press?

There's a fundamental misunderstanding of Baptist polity here, as if the convention ordains and sets rules for the clergy of the congregations. Moreover, the SBC is actually cucking TOO hard on plenty of issues like disfellowshipping "racist churches" (on the state level), passing anti Confederate resolutions, forcing out Paige Patterson.

Look here to see how SBC leadership is actually responding:

Notice the lack of defense

Any real threat of abuse is firstly investigated and attacked by SBC systems, in a foil to the Catholic corrupted system.

>>769588

Yes, there are southern Baptists in Canada and the northern US.

The SBC was formed in 1845 after the triennial convention of Baptists forbade sending missionaries from slave holding families, so the south split off.

you know, I saw this headline and thought "well, we'll just commiserate together at how we all suffer from reprobates".

nope, instant whining and comparisons to the catholic clergy.

We get an unbalanced view from the media concerning these things. Truth be told, pastoral support was never intended to by a daycare, and no matter who you entrust your child to for any length of time, nothing will change the fact that you're just handing them over to another sinner.

Well you’re correct. There’s no such thing as children’s ministry in Catholicism; that’s recognized as the parents job.

Now that is whining, pastoral support includes Catholic pastoral support. I was making a generalization, but it wasn't good enough for you. Your insecurity is showing.
