Sexual Abuse & Molestation in Evangelical Churches
Since the year 2000, evidence has emerged of widespread child sexual abuse within the Roman Catholic Church, and of subsequent payoffs and cover-ups by the church. There is also some evidence of sexual abuse within Evangelical churches, as well as other Protestant denominations.
These are the most lamentable series of incidents that have occurred within religious organizations over the last century. Anyone who abuses a position of trust to harm another has violated not only the society’s laws, but also the laws of their own religious doctrine. Those who are guilty should be immediately removed from their duties and exposed to justice.
The reports of abuse in Evangelical churches in no way clears guilty members of the Catholic Church, but it does give us a better perspective. The problem of sexual abuse has no denominational boundaries. Sadly, sexual predators are in our schools, hospitals, and foster families.
