And Now The Southern Baptists

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY FEBRUARY 12, 2019

         AND NOW IT’S THE SOUTHERN BAPTISTS. TRACKING WITH THE PRIEST SCANDALS IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH COMES THIS.

“20 YEARS, 700 VICTIMS,” READS PART OF A HEADLINE REPORTING ON AN INVESTIGATION THAT FOUND YEARS OF SEXUAL ABUSE PERPETRATED BY HUNDREDS OF SOUTHERN BAPTIST CHURCH LEADERS AGAINST AN EVEN LARGER NUMBER OF VICTIMS.

THE HOUSTON CHRONICLE AND SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS REPORTED THAT NEARLY 400 SOUTHERN BAPTIST CHURCH LEADERS AND VOLUNTEERS HAVE BEEN FACED WITH SEXUAL MISCONDUCT CHARGES IN THE LAST TWO DECADES. AS MANY AS 700 VICTIMS, SOME AS YOUNG AS THREE, WERE ABUSED. SOME WERE RAPED AND MOLESTED REPEATEDLY, SAYS THE REPORT. INSTEAD OF ENSURING SEXUAL PREDATORS WERE KEPT AT BAY, THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION RESISTED POLICY CHANGES.  THIS ALSO TRACKS WITH THE COVER-UPS IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH.

         THERE IS A PRICE TO PAY FOR THIS. IN MATTHEW 18:6

 

 JESUS IS RECORDED AS SAYING, “IF ANYONE CAUSES ONE OF THESE LITTLE ONES – THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN ME – TO STUMBLE, IT WOULD BE BETTER FOR THEM TO HAVE A LARGE MILLSTONE HUNG AROUNF THEIR NECK AND TO BE DROWNED IN THE DEPTHS OF THE SEA.” AND WHAT ABOUT THOSE WHO WILL USE THIS AS AN EXCUSE NOT TO GO TO CHURCH OR BELIEVE IN JESUS? THE SOUTHERN BAPTISTS MUST PURGE THE EVIL FROM AMONG THEM. I’M CAL THOMAS.
