Sex abuse in the Southern Baptist church

An investigation by the Houston Chronicle turned up at least 700 victims of child sexual abuse in the Southern Baptist church over 20 years, with at least 380 pastors, officials and volunteers credibly accused.

Sue them into nonexistence.

It doesn't concern you, Sister, that kind of absolutist view of the universe? Right and wrong determined solely by a single all-knowing, all powerful being whose judgment cannot be questioned and in whose name the most horrendous acts can be sanctioned without appeal?

Quote from: Supreme Court of Canada
Being required by someone else’s religious beliefs to behave contrary to one’s sexual identity is degrading and disrespectful.

Pro-life types (the actual committed ones, like Catholics) get really uncomfortable when you remind them that Brown v. Board of Education and (especially) Baker v. Carr had more to do with the politicization of evangelical Christianity than Roe v. Wade ever did.

They get even more uncomfortable if you remind them that the Southern Baptist Leadership Conference had until (IIRC) 2002 language in its platform supporting Roe.

All dirty, all needing a clean-out and lawsuits.

Criminal charges, too, if possible.
