‘Pure evil’: Southern Baptist leaders condemn decades of sexual abuse revealed in investigation
Russell Moore

“Nothing is worse than the use of the name of Jesus to prey on the vulnerable, or to use the name of Jesus to cover up such crimes, Church life has fueled the undue shame of the survivors of such abuse.”

“The report is alarming and scandalous, the courage and grace of these survivors is contrasted with the horrific depravity of those who would use the name of Jesus to prey on them, How can these predators be back in churches, sometimes just moving down the street to another congregation to prey again? Often, they do so by appealing to some perverted concept of God’s grace.”

“What's most important? Protecting the reputation of the Southern Baptist Convention, or protecting kids in the thousands of churches that are part of the denomination? . . . Maybe it's time for the Southern Baptists to step outside their cultural paradigm and say, 'Yes, we're independent churches. But if you want to be a part of a Southern Baptist community, if you want to be called a Southern Baptist church, you're going to have to voluntarily participate in child-protection policies.' ”

“The truth is that this is a cultural problem, It goes across every single organization where any adult has had access to children alone. No prosecutor at this point could possibly believe there are parts of society where this didn't happen. It did.”
