Investigation of Southern Baptist Sex Abuse Response Moves Forward

posted on September 20, 2021

For The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Holly Meyer reports that an investigation into the Southern Baptist Convention’s handling of sex abuse claims will move forward. A task force has formed to oversee the investigation, and an outside firm will conduct the probe. The vice chair of the task force, the Rev. Marshall Blalock, said, “If the task force does what the convention’s asked us to do, if the Executive Committee responds favorably, I think we’re making huge first steps toward really setting the future toward preventing and appropriately responding to and caring for sexual abuse survivors.”
