Okay, so it turns out there’s a blog called Stop Baptist Predators and it’s been around since late 2006.
Okay so it turns out there’s a blog called Stop Baptist Predators and each blog post deals with a new case of abuse or a new article in the media on the topic, and in the years 2007 to 2010, they published 122, 109, 109 and 113 posts respectively. Things slowed down in 2011 and 2012, but then again, I would get weary of dealing with this topic every 2-3 days for four years.
And I had to quote this comment from April 18, directed to Ed Stetzer:
Since LifeWay provides research and data on so many other topics relevant to Baptist life, I often wondered why you yourself weren’t keeping track of Baptist clergy sex abuse cases. I imagine that most parents would find it “enlightening” to learn how widespread the problem really is – and how easy it is for clergy predators to simply church-hop their way to new prey.
It’s a shame that someone has had to devote nearly seven years to documenting this type of thing online.
It’s also a good thing that someone has chosen to devote nearly seven years to documenting this type of thing online. On behalf of the survivors you serve, thank you Christa Brown.
