The Church and the battle against sexual abuse

This weekend, an expose ran in the Houston Chronicle, talking about sexual abuse within the Southern Baptist Convention. The Chronicle found over 380 Baptist leaders who had been accused of sexual misconduct. Almost 220 of them had been convicted or accepted a plea deal for their crimes.

I believe that the church is too reactionary to these abuses. The church needs to be at the forefront of protecting people from sexual abuse.
