A disturbing article comes out about the child sex abuse scandal in the Association of Baptists for World Evangelism which is based in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. This article also looks at the epidemic of child sex abuse in modern evangelical Christianity.
“To those who abuse: the sin is yours, the crime is yours, and the shame is yours. To those who protect the perpetrators: blaming the victims only masks the evil within, making you as guilty as those who abuse. Stand up for the innocent or go down with the rest.“
John 11:35 NIV
I read this article over dinner and was horrified by what I read. So I just wanted to throw this up for people to read. Its deeply troubling but it is necessary that people read and understand the ongoing issue of child sex abuse in modern evangelicalism. This article deals with the Association of Baptists for World Evangelism. Pace yourself with this article as it is disturbing and very graphic. The article in is the New Republic, and written by Kathyrn Joyce. It’s called “The Silence of the Lambs.”
