(***TRIGGER WARNING: sexual abuse***)
I have just one simple question:
Why is the church the biggest offender of covering up sexual abuse?
Sovereign Grace Ministries
has so far successfully loopholed itself out many serious charges of sexual abuse and coverups.
Other church leaders step in to lend their support
of the ministry and defend the judge's decision to dismiss the cases.
Read Rachel Held Evans' post
in support of the victims.
The Roman Catholic Church continues its attempts to strengthen internal protocols
for accusations of abuse against its priests.
Could the church's handling of accusations of abuse be the litmus test of its integrity today?
Who does the church protect? The weak or the powerful? The victims or the perpetrators?
