SBC Releases 200-Page Database of Credibly Accused Sexual Abusers

The Southern Baptist Convention has released a list of alleged abusers compiled by a former member of the SBC Executive Committee, following a report which showed that the United States’ largest Protestant denomination failed to adequately respond to abuse allegations.

SBC Executive Committee Interim President Willie McLaurin and Executive Committee Chairman Rolland Slade released a joint statement Thursday announcing the list’s public release.

Both men consider the list’s publication an “initial, but important, step towards addressing the scourge of sexual abuse and implementing reform in the Convention.”

“Each entry in this list reminds us of the devastation and destruction brought about by sexual abuse,” they stated. “Our prayer is that the survivors of these heinous acts find hope and healing, and that churches will utilize this list proactively to protect and care for the most vulnerable among us.”

The 205-page list is presented as it had been given to Guidepost Solutions for their monthslong investigation into SBC’s handling of credible abuse allegations involving churches affiliated with the convention.
