It appears the Southern Baptists are determined to pass the Catholic Church as the most corrupt organized religion.
The Southern Baptist Convention’s executive committee claimed that the denomination should not create its own database to help churches identity predators or establish an office to field abuse claims.
Well of course not. We certainly wouldn’t want to have it listed somewhere that preachers might molest children like a Catholic priest. Might distract from that whole “Family Values” thing you keep saying you’re better at then the rest of us.
Not to mention the plate might not get as much cash if the news of a child abusing pastor got out.
No the Southern Baptist Convention would rather just keep it mum. If a pastor gets a little too “hands on” he can just quietly move to another church.
If he just flakes out completely he could even take a job as a youth pastor and give away guns to the kids.
Yeah, I’m looking at you Bob Ross of Windsor Hills Baptist Church of Oklahoma City.
