SBC & sexual abuse

2023-11-27 20:01:41.185327+01 by Dan Lyke 0 comments

Vox: The sexual abuse scandal rocking the Southern Baptist Convention, explained:

Complementarianism’s centrality within the SBC led to a heavily patriarchal institution, which Stone said created an environment in which sexual abuse could happen and be covered up as extensively as the Guidepost report said it was. And as such, she said, simple systemic fixes ultimately won’t be enough to reform the SBC. Instead, theological changes will have to be made, and they will be ones the SBC won’t want to make.

Huh. Turns out that maybe a religious community founded because of support of the institution of slavery might have deeply entrenched power dynamics which lead to abuse. Go figure.
