Mississippi gubernatorial candidate Robert Foster is in this news this week for holding to the Billy Graham rule, made famous by the great evangelist who refused to spend time alone with women to whom he was not married.

The Houston Chronicle released the first of a three part series on sexual abuse within the Southern Baptist Convention.

I highly recommend the article, which I think should be a contender for the Pulitzer Prize.
